I looked around on your "funt2eatagain" site, laughed so hard at some of your memes! It reminds me we need to not take life so seriously all the time and you have some GREAT messages in those blog posts.

What a great site, you have a gift for writing.

I think that No S is a perfect foundation & building what works for you around it would be so much better than jumping ship. If weight loss is your goal you have to give up something, but you will be more successful long term if you choose to give up realistic things instead of things impossible fo...

It's been 5 weeks since I have checked in - most of them have been sick days, after a bout with the stomach bug, 4 days later my son brought home influenza A which has reached epidemic levels in our area, and YEP I got it too! Us old farts take a LONG TIME to get through recovery but finally back on...

Got on the scale for the first time in two weeks, down 5 pounds! Not unlikely due to the fact I had the stomach flu two days ago! I was hoping it would reduce my appetite but I feel ravenous today! I know it is unlikely to stay off but I haven't seen that number in a LONG time on the scale. Moving f...

Mini-Victories & Micro-Tweaks

Some thoughts on how I am approaching NO S recently that maybe someone will benefit from. I am facing 3 extreme changes/stressors in my life right now, and am trying to stick with my modified NO S plan most days. It has been challenging. I have found changing my attitude to celebrating Mini-Victorie...

Checking in - OFF plan for about a week. You could write a book about all the stress and drama in my life that has popped up recently. Having a family member with cancer was enough to bear I thought, but God has other plans. Lots of praying going on in our house right now! Sinking into Perma snackin...

What a great thread! I love the ideas shared here. Keep 'em coming! One thing I do on occasion (if there is time) is to make my place to eat as beautiful as possible, fresh flowers, dust off a nice fine china plate, water in a wine glass, soft music, etc. so your eating experience is as peaceful and...

Thank you Life, for your long reply! I do like Fit Kitchen! I've tried them a couple times, and also a fan of certain heat and eat meals too.

Yes, there is some regularity to my MIL care, large family taking turns being caregivers is less stress for all of us.

Hey! Just introducing myself and letting you know I have read your check-in journal here and it is comforting to know someone else has had a lot of success with the mod that you have, and I am using a similar one (in part knowing it was successful for you). I have also started a check in journal but...

Thank you all for your prayers and support. We have been home now for more than a week, things starting to feel a little more routine knowing it will be temporary.

Re: No S vs. Weight Watchers

Arrrrgh!!! Remind me once again why YOU have personally chosen this route vs weight watchers (or some other way of eating). That is all for now. That is the question. Lol. I need to hear this from folks that have been there once AGAIN!! Perhaps the umpteenth time will be the charm. ;) OK I have tri...

Checking in! Mostly on habit, but due to a family crisis this week, one day I did not eat at all until 1 pm, and then ate too much and just had a snack at bedtime. Think this may fall under a "stress" day, also an S..... I truly enjoy my bowl of fruit to start the day. Today is pineapple and blueber...

I have a mod similar to LifeisaBlessing. I start my day with a piece of fruit or two, then a late breakfast, lunch and dinner, 7 days a week. I allow treats each day if I want with a meal, and each meal is generally balanced and in reasonable quantities.
