I started a journal on Monday, but deleted it because I had second thoughts about this. Fear haunted me and I began to think that I couldn't do this. I thought it wouldn't work for me. I thought I needed something more restrictive to see results. This morning I argued with myself about all the times I have tried other things and couldn't stick with them.

I decided that I should give this a try before I say it doesn't work. So here I go again.

My goals:
1. Follow NO S
2. Walk 20 minutes per day
3. Turn off all electronic devices by 8:45 PM


I am currently 172.9 pounds at 5'1. Shocked

Thanks Merry!

My first week was rocky for sure. I had 2 green days and 3 red days. I hope next week will be better.

Week 2

I started it off strong with 3 green days. Thursday and Friday were difficult, so I had to put red squares on my Habit Calendar.

I three green days for walking and all green days for PM Luddite.

Well done - that's a good start and much better than not doing No S Very Happy

Hey lizzy! Three green days in a row is great! I admire your ability to be a pm luddite. I think I would sleep better if I didn't check my phone right before trying to sleep. I think there's some scientific explanation about the light from the screen messes up our circadian rhythm. I need to work on that. Enjoy your s day!

Yes, I agree! I am amazed I made it three days in a row.

I have the cut off because I did read that the blue light disrupts our sleep and for me being on the internet is too stimulating. I do use my Kindle Fire to read a book because that is not overly stimulating, but it has blueshade feature that blocks the blue light. I wish I could make an earlier cutoff but sometimes it is necessary for me to do work related browsing at night (after the kiddos are in bed). But I make sure it is done before 8:45.

I am crawling back. Embarassed I had a diet-head moment and backslid on No S. Today, I realized that I felt so much freedom with No S. Tomorrow starts a new day.

Today is Monday (a great day to start) the 20th (a nice even number). I am going to try to get into the 21-Day Club.

Hi Lizzy. I just wanted to pop into your thread to say welcome back to NoS! I have also been on many diets over the years, always hoping to find the magic cure and of course never doing so. NoS is my best option and it sounds like it is yours too. I find it helpful to ask myself what else would be sustainable for me in the long term (nothing!). Good luck Smile

Thanks heliz and Bluebell. Encouragement on this journey is needed often.

Sadly, I only had one successful day this past week, but someone suggested that maybe I should just add in an afternoon snack. I think I will have to do that, because it's by far the most difficult part of the day for me.

What's happening? If you are having trouble, let's do some "pre-diet" or "after slip-up" trouble shooting. Unless you have found something easier.
