Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, but not quite new to No S. I have been practising NO S for the last year, but haven't yet managed to establish a solid 3 meal a day habit. As this was one of my aims when I started, I've decided that I need to do something a bit different to what I've been doing for the last year.

At the moment Iím allowing seconds for lunch and dinner on N days if I feel like I havenít had enough at the end of a meal. On weekends I am sticking to 3 meals a day, but allowing treats and seconds.

I will be keeping an eye on my weight, but mainly I want to stop overeating.

Hi Ladybird,

Good luck with your plan. Your S days sound very similar to mine. I hope your seconds help you to stay on track. Do you plan to ease into vanilla No S after a while? No problem if you do or don't, just wondered if you had thought about it? We all have different solutions for our own lives.

Hi Skycat,

I'm playing it by ear at the moment, but I plan to phase out seconds once my 3 meal a day is more firmly established.

I have been doing that too (not plating strictly so I can get the three meals a a day down.) I feel like I need to work on the one plate thing now, but I find myself resistant!

Hi Ladybird,

Welcome back. I'm new to the forum also. I like your idea of easing into things. Good luck!

Yesterday was technically green, but ate too much for dinner. I knew at the time I was eating too much, but decided to ignore it.

Congrats on the good start. As for eating too much for dinner. As long as it's one plate, it's still within the plan, and if you decide you want or need to tackle it as a problem later, well by being aware of it you're already halfway there. So that's a real plus.

Hope your N days went well. Is Memorial Day an eating day for you?

Hi Oolala,

my N days were fine this week. I had seconds for dinner one night, but that is a mod I'm allowing myself at the moment. I seemed to have settled down from the bout of overeating I had earlier this year.

Last week:
Monday - success. Ate less than I really wanted due to digestive issues. Hungry during night and consequently woke up feeling tired and strained.
Tuesday- Sick day. Only 2 meals.
Wednesday - success. Still eating lightly
Thursday - success. Long walk meant I was ready for another meal by mid afternoon. Had a very substantial dinner, but still hungry during night.
Friday - success
Saturday and Sunday - 3 meals each day.

I have noted bouts of undereating, because that usually leads to rebound eating sooner or later, especially if it interrupts my sleep.

Monthly weigh-in: same as at the beginning of May. Maintenance is good.

Last week:

Mon, Tues, Wed - success
Thursday - success, but didn't eat enough lunch after a walk and was overhungry in the afternoon.
Friday - success. Wanted seconds for breakfast, but resisted. Was overtired in the morning and battling food cravings.
Saturday and Sunday - 3 meals per day.
No seconds for week.

Awesome on no seconds for a week!

Thanks Oolala and Merry. Some days only the thought of having to publicly confess my slip ups keeps me on the straight and narrow. No doubt it will happen sooner or later.

Last Week:
Monday: success. Didn't give myself enough breakfast, but only realised this after eating
Tuesday: success. Both breakfast and lunch were a bit light on
Wed - Fri: success
Sat: 3 meals
Sun: 3 meals, but very irregular. Breakfast at 9, afternoon tea 4, and a too big dinner at 6:30.

I am still having trouble hitting that nice sweet spot of not too much and not too little, but I have had that problem since I was a teenager.

I don't know that I've even gotten this down perfectly. Nothing to do but keep seesawing a bit.
