Thanks Linda & Soprano. I was able to do some (unpaid) mental work this morning, so obviously recovering.

Weekly report:

Mon - Fri - success
Sat 3 meals
Sun 3 meals - didn't eat enough earlier in the day due to poor organisation and lack of planning, and ended up eating too much dinner. Ugh. Not for the first time.

Exercise- no formal exercise as still unwell, and then recovering. Was well enough to do some gentle walking by the end of the week.

NO Rec Screen til 2pm - Mon S for sick day, Tue - Sun success.

Weekly report:

Mon, Tues - success
Wed - technical fail - had seconds for dinner after dishing out something that turned out to be inedible.
Thurs, Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals - decided to have a treat day, so second courses for lunch and dinner. Just went over the limit of comfort at dinner.
Sun - 3 meals - finished off one of my treats, but otherwise ate as normal.

Exercise - 12km with walking group, gardening with some heavy lifting.

No Mindless Screening til 2pm - success except for Sat, when I struggled in the morning and gave in for a while to the desire to distract myself.

edit:

After 18 months of solid 3 meals a day and no bingeing, the memory of how I used to feel about my eating and weight fluctuations is starting to recede into the background, rather than being an everpresent preoccupation.

Great to read you have lost your preoccupation with food and weight.

As I have learned to trust the system and lost some weight I'm not as obsessed with weighing. It's funny but before nos i didn't weigh often but once I was committed to it I had to know it was working Smile

I know! It has gotten much worse!
What will happen to our forum as time goes on? Entropy is upon us!
Should I print out my pages? Will we have to "move" to a new place on the internet? Like in Ralph Breaks the Internet?

Weekly report:

Mon - Wed - success
Thurs -success, but too much volume for dinner (lots of veg), but not enough calories overall for the day
Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals, 2 courses for dinner, which was planned ahead. Ate a smaller first course than usual so I could comfortably fit in the second.
Sun - 3 meals. As often happens, I felt "hungry" after dinner, but ignored it. Occasionally this means I haven't had enough to eat and I end up having supper so that I can sleep. Often it doesn't and it goes away. At least No S takes away the decision as to whether to take notice of the desire or not. Last night was marginal.

Exercises - 1 walk with group 13km, including a few hills. Light gardening and bike riding. Lots of sloth otherwise.

No Rec Screen before 2pm. Success.

Monthly weight check:

Oct 136 - 138
Nov - 134 -137

After last months slight rise, my weight fell to a new low this month.

Weekly report -

Sun - 3 meals, another Xmas do at lunch, no overeating. I only get to this group once or twice a year, so it was good to catch up with people.

Exercise - walk with group 10m, small hills, some exercises, light gardening and bike riding

No Rec Screen til 2 pm - success. Have started a version of Reinhard's cards to help me organise my time better and get more done.

Weekly report:

I had 4 social occasions with food this week, so I loosened the reins a bit. So no dishing out all my food at the start of the meal - that wasn't going to work. Instead I had second helpings and second courses where appropriate. However, I avoided the treats, all my eating was meal based and mostly I didn't nibble. That added up to no overeating. The last do I went to, the hosts had set out small plates for the mains, which made it very easy to remain moderate. I am declaring a success for those N days which included social events. If I had eaten sweets, they would have been S events.

In fact, the weekend was harder.

Mon - Fri - success
Sat - 3 meals plus supper
Sun, 3 meals - I wanted to keep eating all I had dished out for dinner, but my stomach said otherwise. By the time I made myself listen to my stomach, the poor thing had been filled a bit too full.

Exercise - walk with group was 7km - had to cut it short because the weather was lousy. Bike riding, gardening, various exercises.

No Rec Screen til 2 pm - success - very easy because I was out so much.

Good job ladybird!! Those weeks with so many social activities are very challenging! They require us to fatigue our willpower muscles, so I do hope that you enjoyed your weekend S Days for real so that you are able to tackle this week.

Thanks Linda - it was a good week.

I'd like to claim lots of credit for resisting temptation, but in fact overdoing social eating wasn't my problem, and hasn't been since childhood. It was resisting the temptation to eat when I was by myself that was so hard. Still, the rules make it easier not to overindulge.

Weekly report -

Mon - success. Had to restrain myself from cleaning up the leftovers when making Xmas day desert
Tues - S day. Still stuck to 3 meals and no snacks, but had a very nice Xmas dinner
Wed - success
Thurs & Fri - fail. After a hot walk on Thurs went shopping and to my surprise found myself filling my basket with my favourite fatty treats. I can only assume it was partly a response to the physical stress of walking & cycling in the heat, and perhaps a delayed response to Xmas day. None of it was sweet, not even the dark chocolate, and I stuck to 3 meals and no snacks, but it was definitely not in the spirit of No S.
Sat - 3 meals.
Sun - 3 meals. Ate enough rich food to make me feel distinctly seedy by Sun am and wasn't really hungry for the dinner I ate. Had seconds for lunch & dinner.

Didn't finish the chocolate bar I bought, and gave the rest to a friend this morning. She will enjoy it more than I will at the moment.

Altogether an interesting experience from which I learnt that I really don't have much tolerance for a lot of rich food any more. Even though apart from Sunday dinner I didn't eat too much volume, the after effects and the constant thoughts of food took away from the enjoyment I got.

Next time I go shopping when it is hot, I will be more aware of what is going on, and let those thoughts go rather than acting on them.

Exercise - 3 shorter walks, as too hot for long ones. Usual strength exercises and some stretching. No gardening except for picking fruit and watering.

No rec screen til 2 pm -success.

I'm also finding that I have much less tolerance for rich/fatty/very sweet foods than I did before I started NoS. Interesting.

Weekly report:

Mon - Fri success
Sat, Sun 3 meals

Eating back to normal.

Exercise - several shorter walks this, including a bit of hill climbing, strength exercises

No Rec Screen til 2 - success

Monthly weight report:

Nov 134 - 136
Dec 135 - 138

I've been in the same weight range 135 - 138 for about 6 months. As I still have more belly fat to lose, I have decided to make a big effort this month to stop doing the last of the overeating, which was eating too much at meals sometimes. I will also be cutting back on some of the fattier foods I have been enjoying. Lets hope that that is enough to get things moving again.

On the plus side, I have achieved maintenance, just at a higher weight than I think is really healthy for me.

Good work on your no screening, too. I know you've worked hard at that and I bet it feels good.

Thanks Auto. Just about at the point where I can see myself restricting that particular form of time wasting further.

Weekly report:

Mon - fail - supper
Tues - fail - seconds for dinner
Wed - fail - supper. So much for my attempts to make sure I don't overeat at meal times - all that happened was I didn't eat enough.
I woke up on Thurs with a renewed determination to fix this, and since then I have been recording my meals & times to try & work out just what and how much I need to eat. This is strictly short term. The aim is to then translate that into my weekly shopping.
Sat - 3 meals
Sun - 2 meals & 2 snacks.

Exercise - 2 walks of 7km, one with hills, & several shorter walks. Small amount of strength exercises. Long walks are out until we have some cooler weather. A bit of urban cycling for errands.

No Rec Screens til 2 - success. I have introduced a new screen limitation - no second screening, a bad habit I have slipped into which I want to stop.
