Ginger, it sounds like you are doing great!!! My first few weeks of Nosing were spent in a motorhome with my family and man it seemed so odd not to be driving and munching. But, I stuck with it, and I really think that helped carve out the habits. It was easier coming home and getting into a routine...

Hi Blue. I got that information about muscles holding water from reading one of Bob Greene's books. He said that when you first start an vigorous exercise program that you really shouldn't weigh yourself for the first month or two because muscles can hold up to 9 pounds of water weight. Just like wh...

Hi All. I have read this thread with great interest since I have gone through phases of everyday weighing and never weighing. Right now, I am in an "no weighing" phase. But, I do want to mention my most favorite tool to chart my progress: my tapemeasure! Every month I measure myself so that I can se...

Hi Blue. Yes, I feel really good. I'm shooting for 365 days......(always aim high!) :lol: I see that you have had success too. Tonight will be a challenge because I have to go to an "event". And they will be serving dessert! But, since I know that its an N day I am already mentally preparing. More a...

Laff - this may sound crazy, but you have to decide. For you, an occasional bran muffing may be no big deal. But, it also may be a "trigger" food that in your heart, you know, you consider an S. Personally, I wouldn't eat a bran muffin during the week because to me, bran muffins are sweet. And, Swee...

Mikey, because you are reprogramming your mind for habit it will be helpful if you can structure your eating on a regular schedule. It really is important to eat. I eat every three to four hours. If I don't eat, then I will binge at the next meal.

You can do this! Best of luck on this third day!
