Good morning. I just ate three pieces of cake.

And I'm so over the whole damn thing.
I just want to be normal. I don't even care about weight loss. I just want sanity, structure and normalcy around food.

I have PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) and my struggle with this tends to define my relationship with food in general. I won't get too detailed - but it's the monkey that rides my back, making every month a crazy boomerang between dietary perfection and absolutely bizarre, disordered eating patterns.

But even people with mood disorders can work on habit, right? I've purchased and read "The No S Diet"... and... well.. what have I got to lose? (besides the 20 pounds I put on since quitting keto in the spring...whatever).

It just makes so much sense now, to quit the nonsense and start working on habit, plain and simple and let my weight be what it will be. So I'm starting - right now, right this second, three pieces of cake be damned.

Greetings to everyone who reads this. I know I'll be scouring all of your posts for support, motivation and encouragement. Lord knows, I need it.

Welcome! You’ve definitely come to the right place if sanity is what you’re looking for.

I started NoS in a similar place as you are now. I was just so done with dieting and wanted a healthy relationship with food. I spent the first year establishing my habits and it felt so great not to obsess about food anymore. I didn’t lose much weight that first year but am now down about 55 lbs. it’s been a long, interesting journey.

Anyways, sounds like this is a good fit for you. So glad you found us.

Best of luck!

Linda

Welcome to No S. Fortunately for us, perfection is not required to establish good habits, but consistency of effort is.

I want to thank everyone for their warm welcomes! Honestly I’ve had such a rough couple of days... and just coming here to report and reading what you guys have written is making me tear up! I’m off to a rough start! But you haven’t seen the last of me! Apparently this NoS thing is really simple and clear - but not easy! (Not for me right now at least!). In a few days my emotional state will level out and I know I’ll get some Green Days. In the mean time I’m going to keep trying, keep reading what you guys write for support... I know I can do this and I know I can get stronger. Thank you, everyone!

Be patient and kind to yourself, you'll find the slip ups become fewer and fewer and the habit will slowly ingrain. Just don't stop trying Smile
