Wednesday SUCCESS! Feels like a real success because I was hungry at times (maybe should have eaten more at lunchtime) but I didn't crack! AND I watched 'Great British Bake off' in the evening without eating!! Breakfast : Porridge with milk, raisins, spoonful of peanut butter and unsweetened cocoa,...

Hi Linda - no, I didn't make them from scratch!! I just added the ham and cheese :lol: And, i think you are right about just saying 'no thank you' or saving some for later... Last night I did end up having some of the dessert. But the portion of main I was served was pretty small (!!) so i at least ...

Breakfast : Large bowl of Fruit & Fibre with milk Seemed probably too large, but i was hungry by lunchtime so maybe that's ok! Didn't eat the cake that was on offer with friends this morning. When I told them I had recently given up snacking there was an audible gasp! :lol: Lunch : Carrot and lenti...

Thanks all... Yes, I think the danger is to feel so disheartened by an S day that it ruins the rest. I tried to simply observe myself more this last weekend and think 'well, that's interesting' :roll: It was definitely noticeable to me that permasnacking really reduced the pleasure of eating... So, ...

Hey, Bluebell, are you going to do a 'daily check-in'? I've just started one and think it'll help keep me motivated towards the end of the week when I am tempted to cave! :)

ModBod's daily check-in

OK, I've been reading some other check-ins and found them very inspiring, so think I'd like to try the same... Breakfast: Porridge, with raisins, cinnamon, 1/2 banana, about 6 almonds and 1/2 tsp of honey. I dithered over the honey, was it permissible or not! Next time will prob leave out as it didn...

Reflections on going into Week2

Hello everyone. It feels like I'm conducting a psychological experiment on myself trying to adopt these NoS principles! My reflections as I head into week 2 are: 1. I wasn't wholly successful on the 'no sweets' part, and allowed myself dessert at meal times 3 out of the 5 noS days... it adds up! I f...

Fellow Newbie!

Hi Bluebell... I'm new too! I started No S as of last Friday (31 Sept) and it's going pretty well. The no snacking has been wonderful - to not be crazy about food all day, and to then really enjoy proper meals has been a breath of fresh air. I find the 'no sweets' the challenge, and have ended up ha...
