Hello - Success for today. Finally. I sat on the floor this morning feeling very hopeless and wondered what to do with myself. I am at my heaviest ever weight. I have been snacking and eating sweets with abandon for months. Decided to see if so could do just one S day and that is what I have done. L...

Weekends are harder for N days. After my last post I had a tricky weekend with seconds creeping into snacks. First mistake was a small lunc, always need to eat enough at each meal I think to stay on track. Anyway all has been ok again since Monday. I have had some sugar cravings over the last few, p...

Yes I can honestly say that it is much easier without S days and I am sticking with it still without too much thought - really pleased. I have had some conversations with people on other diets this week and am so glad I am on this one. I am out to a three course dinner next week and intend to have c...

I gave her tea but no snacks. She had had lunch on her way over so I don’t feel too guilty! I had intended to offer her some chocolates that I had been given but I forgot!

It is interesting to see how people have come up with mods to fit their own eating issues.

My mod is to have no sweets or snacks seven days a week but not to wo...

I am now basing my plan on the theory that sugar is addictive and am avoiding it (or more specifically refined/added sugar in excess of 5% of the food) altogether.

I found it helpful to have S events rather than whole days. The cake on Friday and your parent's dinner can be separated from the rest of Thursday and Friday.

Diet Coke would definitely be the logical answer but I do think it’s gross! And Sweetners are probably bad for you too. To be honest I have gone off normal coke too so it was very silly. Sparkling water and lime? Although I hear they have now found that fizzy water makes you hungry.

My son’s leg is improving, thank goodness.

I was out in a bar but not drinking alcohol last night and foolishly had a coke. It was just down to peer pressure going on inside my own head. I need to make a plan for these situations. Otherwise all still going well.
