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.

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.

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.

Thanks Oolala.

My 3 meal a day habit is starting to feel a bit more solid now.

Weekly report

Mon to Fri - success
Sat: 3 meals - seconds for lunch as I hadn't given myself quite enough to eat. Dinner - dished out more than I needed, but ate it all anyway.
Sun: 3 meals

I've cut back on the treats on weekends as I think too many energy dense foods were stopping me losing weight.

Good call. It's rarely the light foods that stop a person from losing weight, though it's the total that counts, and they are part of the total. But just a few bites of dense foods can tip the scales up;a few bites of celery usually doesn't. People don't usually lose by cutting veggies.

Last week:

Mon: success
Tues: success - light breakfast, not enough lunch, hungry most of afternoon
Wed: success - rather large breakfast
Thurs, Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals
Sun - 3 meals, seconds for lunch, a bit too much dinner

I'm happy that I haven't had any out of control eating episodes since I joined the forum, although I'm still overeating at meals sometimes.

Sounds like a really good start! It takes time to get the meal portion sizes down in the beginning, so don't worry about that--it will come in time. You're doing great with the habits!

Some overeating is par. No out-of-control eating so far is pretty fantastic.

Oolala -it's the combination of weekly reporting plus committing to 3 meals a day plus dishing my whole meal all out at once that is making the difference.

Weekly report:

Mon - Wed: success
Thurs - technically success, but didn't eat enough
Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals - a large lunch, as I have been feeling too hungry lately. Only just interested in food by the time I had dinner.
Sun - 3 meals - dinner also perhaps more than I strictly needed.

One of the good things about No S is if I get to the point of feeling like I am not eating enough for comfort, I can have a deliberate break on the weekend. This is much better than breaking down and bingeing.

Weekly check-in:

Mon: success - only two meals as I wasn't hungry enough for 3
Tue: success, but not enough lunch or dinner
Wed, Thurs - success
Fri: success. Seconds for lunch as part of lunch was inedible. Allowed under mod.
Sat: 3 meals
Sun: 3 meals. Not enough dinner. Hungry during the night.

As I look back through my check ins, I have been surprised at just how often I haven't eaten enough. This probably has contributed to my overeating jags in the past. I find the structure of No S plus tracking helps bring such things into view.

Thanks Oolala. My eating used to cause me a lot of distress when I was younger, but eventually I realised that the more relaxed I was about the whole thing, the better things were.

If a couple of "too much" meals are all you're having, you are WAY ahead of the game. Awesome!

I'm training myself to ignore the urges to eat outside mealtimes, but they are still there. Occasionally I have moment where I feel sick of the whole thing and want to chuck it in, but so far I have managed to not act on those thoughts also.

No one can guarantee that you will ever stop getting some urges to eat outside of meal time. Even those in slim cultures feel those pulls a bit, but they know so well that it's a bad idea that they dismiss them rather easily. I still get them at some of the "old" times, even though I went for a couple of years rarely eating at those times. I'm going through a weird time now, but just knowing that I did not want to keep reinforcing that eating habit then helped me countless times buckle down and look forward to the next delicious meal.

Wanting to chuck it all is all part of the brain's game, spurred by habit, physiology, etc., but it's not a malicious game, just one that misinterprets the importance of the signals.

You are right on track, IMHO!

Weekly report:
Mon - Fri: success
Sat, Sun: 3 meals

I ate larger meals on the weekend than I usually do on weekdays, but nothing really excessive. Still hungry for every meal.

weekly check-in

Mon, Tue - success
Wed - technically a success, but badly underestimated how much I needed to eat for lunch and spent an uncomfortably hungry afternoon. I made up for it by dishing myself out a very large dinner and eating most of it.
Thurs, Fri - success
Sat, Sun - 3 meals. I was finishing up Sunday dinner with a few almonds and had reached the point where my stomach didn't really want any more food. I found myself saying what the hell when I looked at the remaining almonds I had dished out, but caught myself in time. I count this as a win.

Mon -success
Tues - success - 2nds for lunch (allowed) as really had not had enough
Wed - technically success, but a little too much for lunch and dinner
Thurs, Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals, overloaded stomach at dinner
Sun - 3 meals, 2nds for dinner

Monthly weight check-in - my weight is down a little this month. My weight loss would possibly be faster if I wasn't still overeating at meals a couple of times a week, but I am not willing to eat less. I believe that if I pushed myself here, any faster weight loss would probably not be sustainable. I am certainly eating less than in May when I joined the forum.

I've always felt this way too. Maybe at some point I'll feel differently, I don't know!

Last week -
Mon, Tues - success
Wed - success, 3 large meals
Thurs, Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals, over large lunch
Sun - 3 meals

My meals have been a bit bigger this week, partly because I tend to loosen the reins a bit after I've lost a little weight, and partly because I did more exercise than usual on Thursday. I tend to eat more when my energy levels are down.

This week I will concentrate on making my meals more moderate. This to me means avoiding large meals rather than trying to eat lightly. I know I can't do that for more than a meal or two at a time.

Weekly check in:
Mon: success - only 1 meal because of stomach upset
Tues - Thurs: success
Fri - success - 2 meals, not intentionally. 1st meal was very late, and just wasn't hungry until dinner time.
Sat, Sun - 3 meals

My meals have been more moderate this week, partly because of not wanting to upset my stomach. On Friday I told a couple of friends that I was on a waist reduction program. One of them thought at first I meant waste. Eating excess food is a waste, on all sorts of levels.
