Return

Ok - fell off the wagon.

Let's start again. This time I will give myself little goals to help not feel overwhelmed with the bigger goal.

Overall goal is -35, interim goal is -2.

Method is, day in day out concentrate on habit. N days.

Early evening work function when at my hungriest - didn't stand a chance - had a bunch of snacks and cake prior to dinner.

Day 17: Thursday Fail Success Have to give this a fail - because of the giant green tea latte that I had in the afternoon that at 300+ calories I could just not justify as not a snack and not a sweet. However, I have to give myself a success - because I resisted my typical urge to "what the hell" it...

Thanks Merry

Day 11: Thursday Success

Ate a few tiny, tiny breath mints while stuck in a 90 minute traffic jam - but I will let that pass.

Friday coming up...

It's a serious issue and simply an associative habit - we all have them - I tend to pull my hair when I read. But simple does not mean easy! I trained myself early to not snack during tv, reading, work etc. This is mindless snacking and a scientifically guaranteed way of eating way too many calories...

Thanks rawcookie, I definitely get it - and I am in for the long haul. But I have a habit of gaining rapidly while traveling (15lbs in 3 weeks!) but then being able to lose it just as fast again to get to my usual weight. I am in that phase at the moment - I kind of want to get speedily to my usual ...

Day 8: Monday success Pretty good N-day - some funny business at dinner with soup and bread, (soup is always a tough one). But it all theoretically could have fitted on a plate. I will aim for a little more strictness in these first 21 days. Weigh-in was a little disappointing I had gone down a lot ...

Thanks Merry! Day 7: Sunday s-day Almost exactly like an N day for me - with a small sweet to make sure I didn't try to negotiate another s-day later in the week. As for the lattes - it seems to me like in the original diet, a small daily treat (drug) was left in the program - even on n-days. In the...

thanks raw cookie. What are the beverage rules? Chais and lattes are sweet and 200 plus calories - which makes me wary of them as a hidden snack.

Day 6: Saturday s-day
ate quite a lot....

Day5: Friday Failure I thought Friday nights might pose a problem and they did. We typically have a multicourse meal Friday nights and it's one of two "dessert nights" in my house. So I went crazy (lots and lots of bread, lots and lots of pasta, icecream, alcohol, half a bag of chocolates) I did pro...

Day 3 Wednesday: success In lower case because borderline - but I will take it. 3 meals, no seconds, no sweets, no snacks while on business travel is a victory - even if some of those portions were a bit big. Day 4 Thursday: SUCCESS no funny business - while traveling - definitely a victory. I'll le...

Day 2: Tuesday

SUCCESS

No funny business.

Enjoyed my meals, but felt kind of ravenous the hour before them.

Still deciding on how I feel about alcohol on N days.

1st day went well - no funny business. (Although is a hamburger a case of vertical stacking?)
