Beginagain April 12, 2018

I have not been consistent up to now. Do I not believe it can be done anymore? At 58 am I giving up? I can't give up. No S is the sanest eating plan there is. What reason could I have to not commit to this way of eating? It is a gift. God please help me to start again today and commit to it.

Thank you Octavia! That is reassuring to hear your like experience. And you're so right about the other systems requiring More willpower as time goes on, I totally relate to that. When I would actually lose the weight, then it was like, oh no...now I have to keep doing this to keep it off. I was rem...

Beginagain's Check In

I'm back Again at Day 1. New check in, new start. At 58 year's old, a lifetime of yo yo dieting, and I just want normalcy. Normal eating and a normal weight. I'm 30 pounds overweight, and wish I wasn't. But counting calories, and weight watchers, etc., don't have the magic anymore, the scale never b...

Thanks gingerpie and Ooala. If you notice I edited what I wrote this morning. It's because, as I thought about it, yes Ooala, it's the processed starches that get me too. I never ate beans or corn or a baked potato in secret. I was looking on the internet and read about the No Flour thing. I began t...

beginning again

Okay, this time I want to implement the no s rules with Dr Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet. So, no snacks, no sweets or flour, and no seconds (the 1 plate rule). As for the s day exception, knowing myself, I am going to allow minor latitude to special holiday meals with others. Today is day one. Than...

It's Sunday evening and the advice from Reinhard works. I also re- listened to the podcast on S Days Gone Wild. Thinking ahead with clear intentions of the s-event, and jotting it down in a steno pad, gave me the reward without feeling or getting out of control. Amazing!

New urban ranger

Just got back from a walk and added urban ranger to my habitcal. A doctor told me once, "birds fly, fish swim, people walk." The significance of that simple comment never left me. Now I need to act on it, I am way to sedentary.

Could S Day Normalcy Help

Does this seem like an option that would help me not overeat? On S Days continue to eat 3 single plate meals, but have something special that's more calorie dense than I would have during the week ? That would be my S Day exception. Snacking and Seconds leads me to binge on s days. Portion control i...

I've been thinking about the idea of food sobriety. I have trouble with binge eating on s days. S days aren't meant to be binge days. The idea of Food Sobriety I think can help me. I have an addictive personality. The No S diet is So Valuable in helping that, with defining the boundaries using three...

The 9" portion plates I got are very helpful. I love the way my food doesn't run together on the plate because of the division of portion sections. It helps me practice the "plate method." Also helps getting used to less food. Really cool. Because of my age, 57, I am going to continue with N Days th...

RawCookie, that is good to hear, that it became normal. I will use that 9" plate idea too. It's hard to imagine now, but I'm going to believe that it will become normal for me too. When successful no essers share info like this, it helps me to trust the process. Thank you!

Today I ordered some portion control plastic plates with measured dividers. My husband, when I told him that I've been building the habits consistently, and not really losing, very nicely told me that my portions are too big....I agreed! Haha This is my way of avoiding going back to counting calorie...

You do as well, thank you! I'm going to implement some advice from pages 134 - 136 of The No S Diet book. I can tell that sometimes, usually at dinner, I pile too much food on my plate. The No S Diet has the ability to help me spotlight excess. Now that I'm getting the basic rules ingrained a little...

Hi! The NoS Diet is, for me, the answer to ending overeating and bingeing, because it gives the needed framework for controlling excess. And I have noticed that looking forward to a meal is pleasurable, because I can enjoy eating it without guilt, and without the dreaded calorie counting of it. One ...

I'm still on habit and doing well, no red. I've begun another habit that I call bicycle30. It's 30 minutes every morning on my stationary bike. I look forward to it and feel good about doing it. I'm in 11 days now. I was inspired by a patient where I work. He's been doing this 5 months straight. No ...

Day 12 will remain green. I'm halfway to the the 21 day mark. The only time that I am having to exert willpower, a little, is close to bedtime. My willpower muscle is getting stronger, however. I'm so convinced that the strictness of the habits will internalize, that THERE IS NO WAY I'M GOING BACK.
