One Month In.....

I started No S at the beginning of May. The first three weeks I had a fail every Monday. This week is the first week I've not had a fail on a Monday and I've done 9 days in a row (including S days) without a fail :D I'm even finding that on weekends I'm not going mad or bingeing. Even though I know ...

There's been three times in the past two weeks when there have been cakes/cookies in team meetings and supervision. The first time I felt like I was making an effort to not take one. The second time I felt really good about myself for not having one. The third time (today) I saw them and thought 'I ...

Thanks Reinhard :D I was seriously underestimating how far I was walking. I'm really lucky that I live on the edge of a large town so I have woodland, river and fields just five minutes walk away. Plus the streets where I live are safe so I can walk anytime (one of my dogs is quite scary looking too...

13 miles.....

I've been keeping a track of my walking using http://www.walkjogrun.net/ and in 7 days I walked 13 miles with my two dogs. Today I walked just over 3 miles and burned over 400 calories. You can time yourself and put it in with the distance you walked and it figures out how fast your average speed is...

I made a decision that being hungry sometimes wasn't as bad as counting grams of protein, carbs, or whatever. Hunger really isn't the worst thing in the world. I also found that when I get hungry seems to have more to do with how bored or stressed I am than with what I've been eating. Eating to dea...

Re: Too many modifications?

I just have no control when it comes to the weekends. I'm going to qualify what I'm about to say with the information that I am an alcohol counsellor and work with people who are heavily addicted/dependant on alcohol and other drugs. I am not saying I think you're an addict or are dependant on anyt...

Just had a look on the website and it says there is 4.4g per 100g of 'sugars' in the Asda ownbrand 'wheat bisks'. I don't know if that means actual sugar? The labels can be really misleading. I have been enjoying a zero fat yoghurt and a cinnamon bagel for breakfast recently. I have the yoghurt real...

I'm very new too to No S, but I'm thinking this week that I will start my S days on a Friday evening and carry it through to Sunday lunchtime. I have also decided to add in an afternoon 'snack' at about 4pm only on days when I am at work or university. The snack will be either fresh fruit, nuts or p...

I started No S last week and did 5 days straight with no snacking. But I find that between lunch and dinner I get hungry if I'm at work - to the point where my hands are shaking and my legs feel wobbly. So I'm having to snack, although it's always on something healthy like fresh fruit or nuts. I don...

My dog. Walking has always been my favorite form of exercise, but I'm lazy. The dog gets me moving. Yep, definately my dogs get me walking. At least once a day for an hour and sometimes twice a day (depending on my work schedule). I love to get out really really early before anyone else is up and I...

I thought I was being really healthy by having Weetabix for breakfast with a chopped banana. But then I read on a different thread about the sugar content in cereal so I had a look on the box. Sugar is the second ingredient on the list!!!!!! I eat porridge every day in the winter with brown sugar an...

@oolala53 Thanks for that I totally agree. I'm a Buddhist so I very much like the concept of 'letting go'. I've had two failure days this week though because I ate a biscuit on Monday then today I was at college until late so had to snack as I was going shaky from low blood sugar. But I snacked on a...

Can this be right!!!!????

I'm super new to the forum and to the No S Diet. I've been following it for 10 days now and have found it so easy to follow - I mean the concept is so simple. As I don't have any scales I decided to measure my waist and hips instead. So, my waits measured 34.5 inches on the day I started doing No S....
