The large dinner was a treat, too, no?

Perhaps it was in its way. Although as far as I remember, the food was nothing out of the ordinary.

I think you might be right there. I still can't see myself having restrained moderate meals 21x per week, and I do enjoy(?) the feeling of really not wanting to eat any more. So having that outlet on weekends is good.

Weekly report:

I had a tough couple of days battling food cravings this week. However I didn't succumb apart from eating excessive amounts of cheese with my meals. Given how much I was thinking about eating outside meal times, and going back for seconds, I count this as a success.

Mon-Fri - success
Sat, Sun - 3 meals.

Exercise - one walk, about 10km

Excellent! Having the excess at meal time is a great step down strategy that Reinhard was very savvy about.

Give yourself big props.

Weekly report:
Mon - Fri: success
Sat, Sun - 3 meals

No funny business, although I have been hungry in the night a couple of times.

Exercise: 1 walk 8 km/5 miles with group (cut short because of the heat), 3 bodyweight sessions where I try to regain some of the muscle mass I have lost over the decades. I have noticed some strength gains over the last 6 months, which is encouraging.

I've been reading some of the posts on Michael Mosley's fastdiet forum. I tried fasting several years ago, but found myself in bed and feeling rather unwell by late afternoon. Obviously, not for me. I do do a limited form of IF which involves not eating until mid to late morning, and stopping eating eating early in the evening.

Recently I've tightened that up a little, to deal with a particular health problem (not to lose weight, or because I couldn't succeed with No S). I've been doing this on and off (interrupted by periods of disordered eating, which IF did nothing to cure) for several years, and have found some benefits. In particular, I find it convenient to be able to go out without breakfast and last until lunch time without any particular difficulty. I also believe that my tolerance for exercise has increased.

Both nice benefits. Smile

Weekly report:

Mon, Tues, Wed - success
Thurs, Fri - S days - was staying in the mountains with a walking group. Had 4 meals each day, as too difficult to fit in 3. No disordered eating or impromptu nibbles.
Sat, Sun - 3 meals

edit: I had a couple of comments on the size of my meals. I pointed out that my meals had to last between lunch & dinner etc, and that I wasn't eating all the extras - wine, pre-dinner nibbles, cake for morning tea. I could have also pointed out that fruit and veg occupy a larger vol for fewer calories than more energy dense foods.

Exercise - 1 bodyweight session, more walking than usual - 8km/5 miles, 16km, 13 km and some ups and downs.

Back to the heat in my home town today after a wonderful 5 nights in the cool.

Weekly report:
Mon - success
Tues - success by the skin of my teeth. Felt tired, restless and unsettled after lunch. Somehow managed to get some distance from the unpleasant feelings, and distracted myself until dinner. Coming back from being away is usually a difficult time for me as far as not overeating goes.
Wed - technically success, but ate too much lunch and dinner.
Thurs, Fri - success. Being more careful about how much I put on my plates.
Sat - 3 meals
Sun - 4 meals. Ending up having supper as I inadvertently had too little dinner to keep me going til I got to sleep.

Exercise: 1 walk 8km mostly on the flat with group, 3 bodyweight sessions (not really sessions: as I was still recovering from being away, I did the exercises at odd intervals during the day, instead of one after another in half an hour. It still works.)

Monthly weight report:

Dec: 140 - 143 lbs
Jan: 139 - 141 lbs

My weight dipped to a new low this month, but I didn't stay there as per usual.

Not giving in on Tuesday is an extra success. Exclamation

Weekly report:

Mon: success, but indigestion after dinner
Tues: success, but seconds after dinner
Wed: success
Thurs, Fri: technically success, but seconds after dinner again. On Friday I was strongly tempted to continue eating, something that rarely happens now.
Sat: dropped in on a friend at lunch time after a bike ride on an empty stomach and had a snack. 3 meals as well. Seconds for lunch. Indigestion after dinner again.
Sun: 3 meals. I've been eating a bit different food to usual, the result being either indigestion or feeling so unsatisfied that I ended up having seconds. I put a stop to this on Sunday, and went back to my usual diet and ate three satisfying but not excessive meals.

Exercise: walk with group in the heat: 10km. 3 lots of bodyweight exercises. One longer than usual bike ride.

There has been a cool change thank goodness.

couple things -- 1) you have an active social life -- and I mean that really literally, since you walk with a group! SO COOL!
2) do you live in Australia? Somewhere it is very hot right now?
3) all that biking!

Impressive

Walking with a group has always been one of my favourite things to do. I live in a rural city with plenty of bush nearby.

I do live in Australia. Talking about the heat while the northern hemisphere freezes is a bit of a giveaway that I'm not there.

Most of my biking is short distances over easy terrain, and hardly counts as exercise. I went off on a rail trail to a local creek to get out of the house. It was too humid to walk, but biking was OK.

So your days are getting slowly shorter now. I hated being in the dark for so long many winters because I often woke up at 4 (insomnia, not choice) Light! Light! I wanted light early! Now I'm on the other side because I'm not working and was enyoing being able to get out and walk during the civil twilight when the colors are so much more intense. Now it's coming earlier and I'm waking up later...

But there's always the sunset. In another month, it will be at a great time to go eat at a restaurant on the beach at a dinner time.

I hope you find the sweet spot regarding indigestion.

I had a coworker once that went on a family walk after dinner every night. For years! Always admired that.
