Hi gingerpie,
I appreciate your support on my thread.
You're doing so well... great continued success on the glass ceiling, progress in NoS and I'm glad you enjoyed the hiking challenge with the fam! Sounds like fun.

So June turned out to be a terrible month in terms of no-s compliance but a great month in terms of everything else . . . sigh . . . I so rarely get everything right at the same time Rolling Eyes

Despite my no-s fails I'm still maintaining my weight loss, feel great and am on top of my game. Not that I have a particularly tough game. It's just that I'm on top of it. I'm also feeling good about cutting back to occasional check-ins although I still lurk daily and am keeping up on what is happening here. It seems like I'm less focused on weight loss and more focused on life in general. That, my dear friends, certainly seems like a "win" in my book.

As always, Hope you all have a great day.

Hi ginger, yes having maintained a significant weight loss for 3 years, living life and not let dieting or maintaining or whatever define you.

Thus is why I am back to no s.....you don't even have to think about it normally, just get on with your life. Focusing 'on life in general' is what it should be about!

Kit


Very Happy

Hey everybody! I decided to start posting again. It seems like compliance has been a bit too lax lately so I'm back to tighten up the reins. Overall, things have been going pretty well. I've started a couple volunteer projects that will take up quite a bit of my time so I won't have a lot of free time to post but a little accountability never hurt anyone.

Today was an s day but a very modest one - just had an extra piece of fish at dinner. Hopefully tomorrow will be just as modest.

I guess I'll go back my 21 Day challenge. I was only able to complete it once so it still seems like a worthy goal. So,

Day 1- success Cool

Back to my old tricks. Chips in the evening but I'm taking it as a win because I really didn't enjoy them or the feeling afterward. I had similar experiences when I went sugar free-ish:first thinking "this is going to taste really good" then a distinct feeling of disappointment in both the taste and the experience. It's good. It means I just have to wait for my brain to accept that they really don't taste as good as I remember them.

Day 2 -Disapointing but true fail

Day 3 success
funny business to report: We decided to go to the high school football game last night so dinner was going to be stadium food. I allowed a snack around 6:30 since I knew it was going to be another couple of hours before I ate and lunch was at 11:00 am (I work in a school) in retrospect, I wish I had chosen a piece of fruit but I didn't.

In case you're wondering . . . Dinner was just as delicious as you would imagine high school stadium food would be Wink luckily the lack of deliciousness greatly encouraged moderation. Overall, a success.

Have a nice weekend everybody.

In my early days, having such an unsatisfying meal would likely have sent me looking for something else later. Kudos for making do.

Yes, I think that's true for me as well oolala. I would have kept eating in an attempt to find that "satisfying" combination of taste and texture. Its a huge win that I can now recognize that not all food is satisfying either nutritionally or emotionally and that's okay.

Yesterday was an s- day and as s-days go it was okay. I had both brunch at a friend's house and dinner at another friend's. At both meals I ate to the overfull mark which is a bit disappointing but it wasn't a crazy day otherwise. I also had , a relatively, small portion of chips between the meals as a snack but I wasn't really hungry when I ate them. I bring this up because I think my next step should be to focus on really paying attention to my comfortably-full vs. over-full feelings.

I'm re-writing my goals just so I don't loose sight of them.
1) vanilla no-s
No snacks
No sweets
No seconds (slight mod of noticing if I really need
those last few bites)
2) Run 4 days a week/ walk the rest
3) Do something productive in the evenings. . . . A few
Choices: Phone calls, Volunteer work, Paperwork really . . The list is endless Shocked

Speaking of productive - I'd better go do something Smile

Dismal fail I think I may need to really evaluate why I'm doing this and also evaluate what the payoff is for when I fail. There must be something I'm missing and not addressing but I sure don't know what it is. We'll, Today (or more specifically, tonight) Will be the day I turn the corner! ! " I think I can,. I think I can. I think I can .

Or look the negative consequences when you fail. I concentrate on how it will ruin the next meal. A bit on not liking feeling the food controls me, but I try to avoid much drama around that.

Sometimes just getting through the hardest meal gap without failing for a few days can get the ball rolling again.

I'm on your side!

Making too many rules can make you rebel............ Reinhard recommends concentrating purely on the three meals a day until you have it down.

I don't know if this would help you - but I do two things that have become crucial to my No S habit. Firstly I always make myself wait until 12 midday before I eat lunch - no matter how early breakfast was. If my belly is rumbling at 11am - I make another cup of coffee. Secondly, I always know what I'm going to eat - I write down breakfast, lunch, dinner for the next day (or more) in a notebook in the kitchen. If I know I'm going to have a 'heavy' day at work - then I pack a big enough lunch to 'satisfy' myself - even adding in a bag of crisps (chips) if it's going to be really stressful!

These two parts of my NoS routine really help keep me on track.

Smile

Well that was annoying. I spent 20 minutes typing a post on my phone but the phone bugged out just as I was posting and it didn't go through. This is the short version Confused

Today was a success. I think largely because I just wasn't in the mood to feel icky either physically or psychologically.

Hi, gingerpie- That sounds right on! Avoiding feeling icky is great motivation to stay on habit, and seems like one of the most "real" reasons to stick to it! We deserve not to feel icky, and not feeling icky is within our control (mostly)!! Have a great N day.

Research shows that most changes in habits are sustained because the person just plain feels better when they do it. If the sacrifice doesn't yield more pleasure overall, it won't likely stick. I believe simply being thin doesn't have that payoff enough hours of the day. Finding the right amount of food intake does. It MIGHT get a person thin. But it will definitely get them feeling better.

Went out to dinner tonight. Mostly essed my way through it but I did eat more than I needed. Nothing afterwards though so I'm happy about that. I still feel like I'm moving in the right direction although I've had a couple days of fails.

I think I've had a breakthrough of sorts. I was thinking "Boy! The last few days have been such a struggle. " But then I realized they really haven't been a struggle at all. At some point I'd decide I want something: Think "I can't have that on no-s" but then just eat it without struggling with myself. I think I need to embrace the struggle and get comfortable with it. I used to struggle but I seem to have put it aside recently.

Well, tomorrow is Saturday and I'm looking forward to coffee in bed.

Have a nice weekend everybody.

Halloween went great. Didn't get my Reese's peanut butter cup but I did get a snack size snickers and was totally satisfied. Sooo glad I didn't overdo and then feel icky today.

Today is day one of my newly re-committed 21 day Challenge: I'm going to steal Rawcookie's idea and use emoticons. My goal is to have a month that looks as cool as hers. - A case where "keeping up with the Jones" might have healthful consequence. Thanks Cookie


Cool

Hi, girl! I actually already feel a difference in my step from a few weeks of consistent vigor. When I'm doing my exercises, I'm pushing hard, but it's only for 20-30 seconds at a time, except for the wall sit. It's definitely paying off.

I jogged years ago. I think I never got faster than a 10-minute mile. That would be a 4+-hour marathon! Started getting pain in my knees. Later I tried some workshops to change my habit but could never get it. But I can walk briskly and do little short intense exercises periodically to up the ante when I actually DO walk. Gawd, I'm resistant!

Not bad today although a bit disappointed that I had both an icecream (one scoop with whipped cream and a small amount of chocolate sauce) and 1 Reeses peanut butter cup. Really didn't want either one (which is why I'm disappointed. If I had really wanted them it would be different) but my husband wanted to share the icecream and my daughter wanted to share the Reeses. Life is hard when ones family is thoughtful Confused

Happy News? Nothing to eat after dinner. Yeah!

Tomorrow? First n-day of my first successful 21 Day challenge.

R.jean, yes it was an s-day but it was bothering me that I didn't really want the sweets and yet I ate them. Oh well, I've done worse.

Today was a success it was a little challenging in the evening but I made it through. Of course it helps that there are no chips in the house Wink and now to bed do I'm not tempted!

Another success

My husband had chips right next to me and I didn't reach for one (or two . . . Or three . . . Or the bag) Exclamation I was conscience of them but not hugely so. In fact, after the first 10-15 seconds I wasn't even really aware of them. I've decided that I'm going to read relevant articles about night time snacking/motivation/ etc. if and when he pulls out the snacks. It worked last night very well. It also helped that he put one servingin a bowl and he didn't offer them to me nor put the bowl next to me. I'll take all the help I Can get. Laughing

Ginerpie,

What a clever tactic to avoid succumbing to the snacking! My husband does the same thing. Most of the time, I dream about being able to dive into the bag o chips/cheetos/whatever with him... but I am able to resist, I'd like to think because of No S and the fact that "I don't eat in between meals". The next time this happens, I think I'll try the same think you are doing! Especially because I also love me some chips... Twisted Evil

success

Stayed up a little later than usual so I was feeling legitimately hungry by the time I went to bed but I was able to remind myself that I wanted to feel successful more than I want to feel full. I think I've been having a bit of emotional/psychological hunger going on because I'll think, "I'm hungry, I didn't eat enough. Ooops, hope I can make it through to the next meal." but then when I really think about eating, I don't feel like putting anything on my stomach. Not sure what's causing it at this stage of the game.

Yay lots of great progress! I see that habit is really taking hold. I was hungry last night to when I went to bed but that's when I start planning my breakfast. Knowing I have something yum to look forward to really helped me.

Have a great day!!

Linda, Yes, my habits have improved 10 fold since I started but I still have a few edges I need to tighten up. So far this month has been great for me and I'm really feeling optimistic.

I'm marking today green a ad early but I'm pretty confident it will hold through the night.

Edit: and it did. 7- Days in of my November challenge.

Yeah I definitely feel like I need to tighten things up too.

I'm finding it confusing going back & forth too. I do like that I can post pictures on SP though & think having my own little page is kind of cool. Not sure what I'm going to do either.

Have a great week!

Linda, less time on a device is one of my goals so I'm definitely feeling like I need to stick with one or the other. I waste way too much time as it is. Well, I'm giving SP a 21 Day trial and then I'm sure I'll know what I want to do.

Day 9: success For some reason it just got easy(er). There were chips in the house but they we're only half heartedly calling my name; pretty easy to ignore.and a glass of wine sure would have gone down easy but I made tea instead. Now, of course, I'm happy I made those decisions.

Day 10:success if I keep this up, I'll finally make my 21 Day challenge. It does seem to be getting easier. Several things seem to have coalesced to make things so much more doable: My glass ceiling is firmly in place so alcohol related eating is gone; I'm finally willing to struggle and be ok with it; and I finally want to not feel icky more than I want those chips.

It was a long time comin'

Good morning cyber friends. Especially the lurkers Wink hope you have a satisfying Wednesday!

They are completely "adorbs", cookie. A great motivator.

Day 12 a success I've been doing great with the challenge but I have a sneaky feeling that I'm gaining. I'll stick with the habit building because I think it's the best course of action but I am not happy. Evil or Very Mad

Well, Gingerpie, I guess it can all be chalked up to "valuable information".
For me, when I maintain or gain with good compliance, it lets me know that the "what" on my plates is too heavy for me at this weight, age, etc. It's not always pleasant, but the information can be helpful. I often have to pay attention to increasing the % of vegetables on my plates, and then the weight loss starts up again after a while.
I hope it goes well for you!

you seem to be doing great with your habits at the minute - well done for resisting all those chips! I've found that reducing my alcohol intake has reduced my snacking too.

I don't have enough experience with no s to say much about the worries about gaining even with compliance, but I reckon that building habit is good in itself (and a foundation for other healthy habits).

Hi guys, Thanks for the support. I'll just have to reevaluate -again Confused My exercise routine has dropped (not stopped though) due to a change in my household routine which has changed. It's disturbing to think that my weight hinges so precipitously on the edge between gaining and loosing. It disappoints me because I was hoping, one day, to be able to live my life without thinking about it so much. I guess it will always have to be at the forefront of my mind and, quite frankly, that makes me sad. I don't want every decision I make including (apparently) whether we have "family" style dinners together to be framed In the question of "how will this effect my weight? I say that because that was my change. In order to be able to eat together, I have to start cooking as soon as I get home. It's moving into winter here which means I can't get out to run after I cook. Hence the drop in the amount of exercise I get. Yes, I know I sound sulky. That's because I am sulky. I'm realizing I'm never going to have the freedom that, so called "naturally thin" people have because I'm not one. I'm a 54 yo formerly thin then fat then sitting-on-the -precipitous" person. TBH - I want the freedom of youth back.

On a happy note- dh finally got his dutch passport straightened out which means our options have really opened up in terms of moving out of this wasteland of suburbia which has built up around us.

And lastly, not surprisingly, yesterday was a fail

Hmm, I have had similar thoughts about this. Seems to me we live in a world where everyone else can eat what they hell they like and we have to 'be careful' right? I look at people in my office stuffing their faces with biscuits (cookies) and doughnuts, talking about drinking wine etc etc........ but I often wonder about their state of health. They look like they're 'getting away with it' but are they?

I'll have to read back through your posts to see what your reference to 'family' style dinners are and why they're a problem.

I have a little quote written down from Judith Beck "This is how all successful weight maintainers eat. I have a choice: I can be over-whelmed by the unfairness, or I can accept that this is what I have to do if I want permanent weight loss."

This quote helped me a lot to accept that this is how I have to manage my health and my eating if I don't want to be fat and unhealthy! Wink

rawcookie, The dinners themselves are not the problem. They are actually quite nice. e all sit down at the same time and have real conversations about how they day went etc. The problem is that I don't have time to fit in my exercise after I cook. Therefore, I haven't been exercising as much. It's really just a problem of logistics but it's an irritating one for me.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Hi gingerpie, you seem to be doing really well overall!

Logistics are a pain sometimes - is there any way that your hubby can help with the cooking/preparation so you can get out for a run? Or perhaps there is a gym nearby you could go to later in the evening for a run on a treadmill? When I don't want to or can't run outside, I love to do yoga videos indoors! There are loads of free ones on youtube and you can get a great workout if you choose the right ones.

Millium, Thanks for checking in. I'm really just whining Rolling Eyes I do just have to figure out a schedule -then stick to it, which is the hard part. The reason I'm so whiny is that I've had to adjust my schedule about a kazillion times and I'd really like to be the one that everyone else has to adjust their schedule for. Alas, it's not to be. Two of my 3 kids don't get home 'till 5:30 - 6:00 ish. And they come home starved so dinner has to be ready or there will be no family dinner. It we be "eat what you can find" and "every man for himself". I found 3 crock pot ideas for the coming week. I'm not usually a fan of crock pot food - but I'll give it a shot. The 12 year old can help prepare some things. And yes, I can scale back my exercise goals somewhat. I'm soooo over thinking about food. Both my own and everyone else's.

Ate more than I needed yesterday but trending more and more into the reasonable s-day zone so I'm not disatisfied.

I am feeling peeved with myself reading of your scheduling issues because I have none of these issues and still don't exercise. I could even run in my neighborhood in the dark. Also have tons of workout videos, plus the net. Just pure lethargy here.

Is it time you don't have or light? I guess going for a brisk walk with dh after dinner is not an option? No need to reply. You've probably thought of that one or wished for it and don't need reminding he's not into it.

I've never been able to aim at weight loss on No S. Because of changing hunger levels, Ive 'had to keep adjusting what moderation is. Weight loss has happened in spurts, and isn't usually something explained by the previous few days' eating. It's the underlying value of moderation that keeps me going. The 3-meal structure just continues to be the easiest (not completely easy) way to achieve it.

Do you have you some chips at your meals?

Oolala, I'm sure I'll figure out how to make it all come together in the end. I did it last year - although last year was somewhat different because last year we didn't eat together so often. But I'm finding that eating together is invaluable in terms of maintaining a nice relationship with the kids. It really does make a difference. Yes, they all disappear into their rooms when the meal is over but at least we have that one time of day that we are all together and sharing stories of our day. (dh is the exception. Due to his work schedule he isn't always able to make it home in time - which is also why I can't count on him to help me out with preparation or even walking together.) So, I'll try the crock pot meals and the kids are pretty good about helping me prep for the next day. In a pinch I can use u-tube videos. I just don't find them as satisfying.

It's a beautiful sunny day here today. I plan to enjoy it to the hilt. Smile

I'm so glad you want common meals. It's funny, because it didn't keep our family close, but I'm still glad I grew up with it.

I relate to the difficulty of dinners. I don't have the problem of timing too much except on my daughters soccer practice nights. I do a crockpot night on her Tuesday night practice & a leftover night on the other night. Mainly I have to deal with everyone's different dietary needs/wants. Planning meals becomes so complicated.

I've gotten really bad about the family meals. I make a big dinner most nights but then we usually end up eating in front of the television. Horrible habit I know but we all enjoy it so much. We do spend tons of time with each other though so not too worried bout it.

Anyone good luck with navigating it all!

Last night's crockpot soup is not a keeper. Crying or Very sad I did however make enough to have leftovers tonight. Confused The irony is not lost on me . . .

Yesterday:fail I should have gone to bed earlier. I'm 1/2 sick and don't have much left in the way of stern self-talk. Guess I'll switch over to kindly self-talk.

fail not too bad though. Still working on those evening chips. To be clear, although I'm still failing regularly, the amount I'm eating now compared to 1 year ago is infinitesimal. Recently I realized we are only six weeks away from New Year's. I had made a 1 year commitment to no-s on Jan. 1, 2015. I think vanilla no-s -no reds- from now to Dec. 31st is a fine goal to make.

Food saga update: The leftovers from Tuesday were still gross. They did not magically improve overnight in the 'frig as I had hoped. Undaunted, I'll try another crockpot idea today.

Exercise saga update: I got my run in twice this week (thank you crockpot goop 😕) and the only reason I didn't run the third day was because I walked the dog. - I used to run with him but I guess I got too fast (I'm not even kidding) because now when I start to run, he just sits down and refuses to move. Sometimes he lays down and looks at me out of 1 eye. -adorable but frustrating.

All in all, not a week to complain about. So I wont.

I've been noticing recently that I often eat to overfull. Did I always do that or is it a new thing? I'm not sure. I don't plan to address it just yet. First I need to continue to work on cleaning up my evening snack habit. Baby steps are the way to success.

Happy weekend!

Yesterday - success

my plan for the week is to take no more than 2 s-days. Possibly today because it is my birthday and there might be ice cream with dinner. (It isn't my favorite dessert but my husband thinks it is.😉) And Thursday for Thanksgiving. It wont be huge because we are taking a short trip instead of doing the eat-all-day family style dinner but there is sure to be a treat involved.

I'm back from our little trip. All in all, not bad in terms of no-s. We aren't a family that stops at every food vendor for a snack or a taste so it's pretty easy to no-s it through a vacation. Some things I did notice that I'd like to work on.

1) Sooooo many things look or sound better than they actually taste. I'd like to be pickier about what I choose to eat just because I'm eating less and therefor I'd like to enjoy it more.

2) I need to order way less food than I used to. Sometimes, I forget that. Right now, I almost always can share my too-big order with one of my kids but it's a habit I'd like to lose.

3) I still often eat past the edge of satiation. I'd like to work on stopping a few bites ealier.

Friday was a red but I forget why. I just remember thinking it at some point. Well, Dec. Is my last chance for a 21 day streak in 2015.

Have a nice day everybody.

21- day streak in December is a great goal - go for it!

I'm sorry about the ice-cream thing on your birthday - maybe, one day, you can tell your husband that it's not your favourite? I had a birthday recently too - and found myself eating stuff I didn't want to eat because a friend insisted on taking me out to tea. It has made me think about how I could be more assertive next time though!

Hiya - thanks for stopping in on my thread to say 'hello!'. Yes, I am doing well with No S - it really seems to suit me. I had a couple of RED days in January - but nothing terrible.

I'm going to come back to daily accountability for a few months. Sadly, I'm still struggling with nighttime snacks. Everything else is going great though. I've added morning meditation and evening stretching o my routine and love it. Now . . . For the ladt hurdle.

Same goals as forever:
total compliance with no-s
glass ceiling of: no more than1 drink per night on weekends and 0 drinks on work nights.

Last night (Friday) counted as a "weekend" as far as glass ceiling goes because I don't work the next day and it was a Success. - I had 1/2 glass of wine but probably only because we were out Wink but hey, success is success.

No-s was also success. A little funny stuff because we went out to eat and that's always difficult to judge. I mean it all fit one one plate but it was a restaurant size plate. The important thing (for me) is that I didn't eat anything after dinner.

The whole after dinner eating thing is definitely my nemesis. When I finally kick that I'll be a happy camper.

Hey Linda, it's always good to hear from you. Very Happy

Yesterday no-s: s-day Not remarkable either way.
Glass ceiling: success Nothing in the house so no temptation.

I've been meditating for 5-10 minutes in the morning and I've added a 10 minute stretching routine in the evening. I think it really is helping to keep me more focused and relaxed throughout the day. I recomend it to anybody who may be on the fence about starting a routine. As always, I started out with a super simple routine and a very short time (5 minutes per day) to ensure habit forming without resentment.

Happy Monday. Wink

No-s: success
Glass Ceiling: success - it really is so much easier with nothing in the house. My husband is on board (more or less) so it's been much easier to keep temptation at bay.

I really need to start stretching before bed. I wake up so stiff and sore every morning and I think it's just muscle tension from stress so meditating would prob help too.

Glad things are going well. Having dh on the same page was key for me.

Have a great day!

Linda

So, I'm back . . . Spring and Summer were great and I made huge advances in all aspects of my life. But, as is always the way with me, I still have lots of"cleaning up the details" too do. I'm going to try Reinhardt's idea of "negative quantification" a try. That means I'll only be posting when I fail. So without further ado . . .

Yesterday was a . fail cookies at lunch and later a piece of cake my daughter made.

Fridays and Saturdays are my non- s days.

Hi! Nice to see you back. I do the negative tracking thing with the HabitCal - it does mean that I forget to update the HabitCal though!

I hope you have a good week.

I guess you didn't have a lot of fails between last September and now. Awesome!
