to answer your question: i have NO IDEA how people do this without support. i too am on day 8. for the first 6, i didnt lose a single pound. but i stay on this forum, reading and reflecting, having patience, and boom day 7 i was down 5 lbs. i never would've made it if not for the wonderful people in this forum.
youre doing fantastic, FWLFAL. youre "not so good yesterday" was an idea for a garage sale, and not a midnight binge, i say thats a positive! garage sales are great, youre organizing, cleansing, getting rid of all that excess, from your body and your life.
