Well I'll give a brief overview of last week and my S-day's.

I started pretty much on a tuesday. [Success]

Wensday - it was very busy at work and I was eating my breakfast and lunch portions pretty much through the entire day. I do not think this coinsides with the plan so I decided I need to eat my meals pretty much in one sitting (within a hour?) [not sure of Success rate]

Thursday - got really hungry and had 1 handful (no really, I only took out 1 handful and put the bag back in my desk drawer) of almonds to get my through the afternoon. [Not completely successful]

Friday - had my three meals but had an ice cream cone after dinner Mad [Not completely successful]

My first S-days

Sat - Went Spulunking through a large lava tube for about 3 hours. Did fairly well on my eating. Had a normal breakfast, a light lunch in the cave (a corned beef sandwich) I did graze a bit of some candy and beef jerky but not nearly as bad as I though I would be. Dinner was a treat (i had a BLT with turkey and Avacado w/fries) and an icecream cone later that night. still a little overboard for what I should be eating

Sunday was a total sloth day. Normal breakfast. chips for lunch Confused and a normal dinner I stayed in my pj and played an online game almost all day. Talk about lazy!


I think for me for the first few weeks or so I am going to journal just what I eat and when so I can get an idea of how it's going. While I hate doing calculations I do find journaling helps me personally with being accountable for what I am eating. that way I can start seeing trends as to when I am hungry and what I ate that helped me through the hours till the next meal.

i think journaling helps... it makes you work better at things because u feel like you re reporting to someone(yourself) and you want to make that someone proud...not that i actually do it with nosdiet,, i do that with studying though.. and personally i think the days i journal runs much smoother than the ones i don't.... but it requires too much brain effort ....and i am not so sure about being able to do so on daily basis...
good luck

I think what was a big pain in the rear for me what trying to figure out the point values whan I was on weight watchers. Writing down what I eat and at what time is fairly simple for me. I use a blank check register to record in. That way if I ever get the urge to estimate point values to compair the nos diet with WW I can. It would be interesting to see if using the nosdiet gives me the same daily allowance that WW does..

I'm seeing more smileys than frownies here (and fortunately only one satanic grimace). Keep slugging it out, I think you're getting there. Looking forward to a triple smiley day...

I'll post about my s-days after they're done

At least when I snack it's usually something fairly healthy and hopefully only when I am hungry. I feel smaller already but I refuse to weight myself till the end of the month. My hope os that the weight loss will seem a lot larger and will inspire me to keep at the no-s plan.

Well as per usual I dropped off the journaling kick. But that's ok because I've stuck with the noS kick! Very Happy

It's forming a habit. I hardly ever eat snacks, even on weekends! My meals are a lot smaller and much better choices. My candy and processed junk cravings have been halved.

I was going to wait to weight in till after a full month had passed but it's close enough now to see some progress and I got curious.

I think I was about 226 or so from what I remember, my weight can fluctuate about 3 lbs during a day. Well I weighed myself this morning and I am 118 !!! about 7 lbs in 24days. That is a perfectly healthy weight loss, right about 2 lbs a week. And I haven't even picked up the shovelglove aspect yet!

I got my first "are you loosing weight?" compliment from a coworker, which is always great to hear and really drives home that this is working!

I'v looking forward to checking pack in and showing more loss in 3-4 weeks

I was a bit alarmed before I realized you were 126 before you started the diet... now that would be a weight loss record!

Congrats Murphysraven! You look like you are going great!
By the way, I think I mentioned this sometime before, hmmm?
What part of Washington do you live in? In the early nineties I lived in Seattle for a year and then Bellingham for half a year...
Wow, that had to be the most gorgeous place I have ever been!

Keep it up! But please try to lose more normally okay? 100 lbs a week is a bit extreme! LOL... Razz
Peace and Love,
Cool Deb

Thanks Deb I live across the lake from Seattle. Born and raised here. Suprisingly enough I don't have moss growing on my skin. I do agree it's a lovely area
