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.
Thanks Ooala for your comment on my other thread, it did bring me back!

I have had to admit that when I slip, it's almost always on sugar or flour or somehow a dehydrated, processed starch. I haven't cut them out completely but I'm mulling over what situations I will allow them in, and I have cut them way down over the years--unless I'm failing. I'll still eat potatoes and whole cooked grains, anything that hasn't been turned into a particle or close to it along the way. I call those dry starches. Even moist cakes are really dry starches in my book. In fact, just about anything baked. But there are so darn many of them out there, and for so cheap! But I'm starting to get that -shopping-cart-at-the-edge-of-the-parking-lot feeling when I walk past them. I I feel a resistance like bumping up against the an invisible force field about two feet from the shelf.

Even better is not walking down the dang aisle in the first place.

As you can see, my frequent failure streak has lasted since the beginning of the school year. I even recently gave myself complete permission to go ahead and eat anything. I chose not to fight the compulsion. But I did that from a position of having had Vanilla "work" for me for a loooong time. And with the dry starches, I had a lot of success for quite awhile as well with keeping them moderate. But we're getting to close to the "eating season" and frankly, I'm kinda tired of my own excuses when I know better. I've reminded myself of what's going on chemically. Continuing to reinforce the urges is just going to intensify the whole cycle. I just can't go back there. I just have to go through the worst of the pain before it gets easier.

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 to read Dr. Gott's book and reviews about it. That's what resonated and made me do the edit.
