Hello
I have used No S in the past and like it because it gives me rest about food. I do not have to cut out food groups but can simply eat a plate, be thankful and move on. There is so much confusion in diets and I don't want to spend time worrying about it. So here's to the journey ahead.

I am about 200# and nursing almost 1 year old twins. I find if I eat 3 meals with the option for a snack because of nursing I seem to do fine.
I usually have a lot of extra weight to lose after my babies are born. I have 10 children. I have used Fit for Life and McDougall programs. I have also used this No S method a couple times.

B- breakfast casserole- ham, potatoes, eggs, milk, cheese
with a couple low sugar gingerbread cookies and peanut butter.
L-oatmeal w/ peanut butter, chocolate chips and a large marshmallow melted in, apple
Snack-mac n cheese from yesterday
Supper- real Mexican tamale and chili rellenos. Vanilla bean cake

Because of reading TunaFishKid's check in thread I went to Facebook and unfollowed certain diet groups I keep reading about. Now I can figure out my real interests in life.

I must say I really prefer N days. While the treats on Saturday may seem fun at the time, they leave me unsatisfied at day's end.

I suppose it was technically a Green Day. I kept to my rules but I just feel like I eat too much and I need to work on this. I get discouraged that I'll never lose weight but then I make a full plate. Its this fear of not making it through to the next meal. It has bound me so long. But I could just get a snack on account of the babies and make my plate a little less. Its something to work on.

Wow...your last set of children make 10 for you! Sounds like a lot of work, but you have a lot of experience, too! Congratulations!

Thank you for your kind remarks. Today was our 19th anniversary. We went out for supper to The Bayou. Having visited Louisiana on our honeymoon it was fun to have some food from that area.

Good day. The cookies were tempting but I did not eat them. Good bowl of soup for supper. I really enjoy soup.

Got extra projects accomplished besides homeschooling the children. Was amazing to have a good day after a very disrupted night with a sick baby who thankfully was fine today.

Wow, I'm impressed--great eating day, homeschooling, extra projects, and all on low sleep...you da woman! Awesome job!

I'm glad your baby is feeling better today!

Thanks, Merry!

I am walking 10 minutes most days having gradually increased from 8 and then 9. I like the fresh air between breakfast and schooltime.

Meals were good. Especially enjoyed homemade pizza tonight and fresh milk from our friend's cow. We are keeping it while they travel for a couple weeks.

Today was fun. I had peanut butter oatmeal cookies, peanut butter m&ms, and eggnog.

My husband and I took a trail this afternoon that was about 2 1/2 miles of walking. Loved it but I am definitely not used to that distance. The good part is this trail is not far from my house and maybe I could take the kids and strollers there sometime.

This is a doable plan for you. Please try not to fret about weight. Habits of moderation are more important right now. These will see you in good stead no matter what. Try not to be in a hurry! You have just started. Though research does show that people who lose weight up front do tend to do better in the long run (since they feel motivated to stay with it), it's suspected that is because the ones it takes longer for don't have the patience to keep going. There is little reinforcement from the world without that weight loss. We will hold your hand while you learn to experience the value of this sane way of living.

Been doing great here. Scale numbers shifted downward! It's fairly easy for me to keep to mealtimes and one snack. I've adjusted a bit what type of food I'm eating. I'm still very satisfied. And my twins are 1 year old today!

Anytime the scale drops numbers so fast I eat more, and can't hold on to the new numbers.

Plan to travel for a full week. I wish I'd keep a bit of No S at least. I feel less happy after the extra sweets today. What if I let go for a full week? I'll be back at 200 or worse.

I can't help what foods are available, so I just hope I retain a bit of sense.

Being out of control over what food we're exposed to is one of the major problems. That's why it's so vital to commit to a way to manage it all, one that doesn't have you constantly deciding in the moment whether it's worth eating or not. If you really see this as your best bet to stem the tide, it will make it easier to stick to your meals.

You really will enjoy your food more when you're eating less of it and less often. But the benefit follows the effort down the line, so early individual days can feel hard. Hang in there!

My vacation to see my family went great. Only up 1/2# after trip. Been mostly on track since. Just not that hard to keep the rules with my mod of a snack because of nursing. If I skip that snack after a bit I'm eating at night to catch up so I'd rather just have that snack at 4 or 5:00.

3 kids birthdays last month and 3 this month.

Oh, my word on the birthdays. Are they all YOUR kids?

I sounded so preachy above but I can't resist this:for the parties, summon your inner French woman but without the cigarette. Can you see some casually graceful Parisian woman taking cake every time she's offered it? Zat is for ze cheeldren! Of if she did, it would probably be a slice we would call a mistake we made cutting it, an attempt to even out the angles or something. Wink

Yup, all mine plus 4 more! Love it!

Im doing okay so far today. Yesterday was a flop. I mean with the snow and cold seemed we needed cookies and hot chocolate. I've always had a problem with cookies not the hot chocolate. Well I will keep on going.

Wonderful snow! -10 degrees this morning. Rare for here. Went sledding with my 18 year old son!

Today was good. I feel peaceful about it. Breakfast was a piece of sausage and one egg and a bowl of oatmeal with butter and salt.

Lunch: ground venison/ vegetable soup: carrots, squash, onion, garlic. One piece whole wheat bread with peanut butter.

Snack: 1/2 grapefruit, tablespoon peanut butter w/cayenne pepper

Supper: fresh made Multigrain bread and chili soup

Played in the snow and completed some important tasks.
