Hi! This is my initial post.

A little about myself: I'm 58, female, 5'5"". 201 lbs. I'd like to lose 55 pounds.

Starting wgt 201. I cringe at the thought! But I have been out of control for some years now. I blame it on stress at work but I really have no excuse except lack of control and development of very bad sweets habits. My regular food intake is not too bad.

After re-reading the NO S diet rules, I've decided to splurge for the S days. This will be hard because I'm an all-or-nothing kind of gal but, I'll try it. If I can just cut out all sweets M-F it's a huge victory.

So, that said, here I go...

Breakfast: egg, 1 p. whole wheat toast with margarine, black coffee. 2 slices of veggie bacon.

Lunch: 1 serving whole wheat veggie pizza, banana, sugar free hot cocoa, grapes.

Dinner: 1 serving Wheat Thins, 1 serving+ kale & spinach dip, 1 serving choc flavored yogurt. Apple.

Workout: 45 minutes on stationary bike.

It's a cool but lovely morning. Looking forward to a 5-mile walk.

B-skipped (had a wonderful lie in) until 10 so we decided on an early lunch.
L- 4 oz salmon, 1 serving garlic fries, 1 p. wheat bread with margarine, 1 serving field peas, 1 serving choc flavored yogurt.
D- 1 serving wheat thins, 1+ serving kale & spinach spread, 1 serving cashews, yogurt and a banana.

Update: I gave into the call of the S day and had 2 cinnamon toasts and some milk.

Wgt: 1 pound down! 200 lbs.

Nice S days to start you off! Staying off sweets M-F has a huge impact - you can lessen the pain by making sure you eat enough for your three meals (and try not to count or restrict you calories - being satisfied with your meals whilst you are establishing the No S habit is worth going through the temporary chaos.)

Very Happy

Thank you for the encouragement! I'm going strong. Today, was a good day. Looking forward to my S day, though. Wink

Did good today. No sweets or seconds or snacks!

It was pretty easy today. Hopefully, it will continue. Very Happy

Update: I cracked a little and had two pieces of toast with margarine and sugar free orange marmalade. Sad

A little munchie today, I guess but I still didn't have any sweets - technically. Hope to do better tomorrow.

I probably won't post every day. That's a bit tedious. But I've done well since the Sunday "S" day. I'm about to finish up my yogurt that has sugar in it and switch to OIkos that has stevia.

I had a bit of a bad day Monday only in that I had some extra crackers and things I want to eat less of in future days.

I felt a bit grumpy today. That could have been because I had to go the dentist. Confused So probably had less to do with giving up so much sugar. But the candy and cookies etc have not passed my lips at work and that's been my worst problem.

Go us!!

Thank you all for the comments and welcome! Very Happy

Today marks the last of the N days for this week. Overall, a successful week. I stumbled a bit on Monday and had a couple of seconds but no sweets.

I've dumped my high-sugar yogurt for the Oikos. I only had one sugar free hot chocolate and that was early in the week. I haven't felt a real urge for sweets.

Had some good news and felt like celebrating but never even gave in to the desire to splurge today with goodies. Go me!

I won't deny that I'm looking forward to my "S" day tomorrow. I hope to exercise "some" control.
