With a holiday in 5 weeks I convinced myself I needed to calorie count and get on top of my binge eating tendencies in order to shift some excess weight (I'm currently 72kg at 5'4" making my BMI about 27 or 28 ish by last check).

Can you guess what I've managed to get through calorie wise since I started this? I was aiming for 1200 a day. I've been routinely gorging through close to 4000! Shocked Although I'm not gaining which is always a good thing

So starting now, I'm pledging to give No S a proper attempt. I will have four green days this week! I've never previously stuck at it but I think if I just nix the excess calories I'll lose the excess flabby bits. I won't be skinny for the holiday but I'll have freedom from thinking about food that I can put into moving a little more.

38th time's a charm!

Best wishes! All we really have to worry about is the present moment...

Sounds like a plan to me. Go for it and don't see the holiday as an end point. You need to follow the plan then too!! With possibly a couple of extra s days thrown in..

Normally on holiday I expect to gain weight but more recently I have maintained Very Happy

Welcome back!

Begin cultivating the idea that holidays are not about going overboard on food or drink. Why would they need to be if you are eating delicious food in reasonable amounts regularly anyway? Holidays are about not having to be at work, and being able to enjoy the sights and sounds of a different environment, or "play" with friends/family, etc. Won't it be lovely to "fill up" on other experiences?

I myself have never found that I don't still desire food just because it's not
forbidden." But desire is not the driving reason to eat anymore.

I'm luckily in that the group I'm going with have planned so much for us to do and see that I'll be very happy experiencing my holiday rather than eating it. Plus I feel like we'll quite easily enjoy three meals a day as part of the experience. It can be a holiday from snacking too!
