thanks for describing how AS feels for you, I can relate to that very well! And if that kind of AS helped you so shed 80 lbs, well congrats on that and I hope it'll work that well for me!
I still feel like AS is working, not in that extreme kind of way that some people experience, but rather like an infusion of willpower, as you said.
I've gotten sick on the weekend, but never missed taking my oil despite that. On Sunday, I had a fever and lay in bed all day, not eating anything (despite breakfast and oil before the onset), but yesterday and today, the appetite suppression seems to go on steadily. And of course it's more difficult not to eat unhealthy stuff if I'm alone at home all day, with a full kitchen, than when I'm at work and busy!
The weather is supposed to get real nice for the weekend, and I hope I can got back to work on Thursday, even though I guess I won't be able to cycle as I still have quite the cough. However, I'm nearing the 6 at the beginning of my weight and really hope to reach it soon! I'll keep on posting. And if I ever reach my goal weight thanks to SLD, I'll donate a chunk of money - either to Seth, to OA, or to some foundation for kids who don't have enough to eat - which in itself should make me be ashamed to be overweight, but unfortunately, that sentiment rarely kicks in when I'm in front of the sweets drawer....
Anyhow: yay, I think it's working!
