Decided to do a check in to see if it helps me; i haven't managed to properly start no-s and i truly believe no-s can get me to a point were food stops being something that i obsess about. I struggle with binge eating disorder and although it's gotten easier and i am more aware of my sometimes unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with problems, eating is still my standard response in many situations.

Other challenges i have are disabling migraines that can be triggered by a number of factors, among which hunger (so if i get my portions wrong and get really hungry it might trigger a migraine) and also really bad reflux when i eat only 3 meals. My doctor told me i probably had reflux when i was snacking and binging a lot but my body signals were mixed up.

I have a lot of weight to lose but i'm not in a hurry. I prefer to eat better and i feel if i can make a habit of this the weight loss will follow.

I am 158 cm and currently weigh 102.5 kgs. That's 226lbs with a bmi of 41.1

Today is my first vacation day; i only go back to work in the middle of august. I plan to dedicate myself to stablishing n-days.

*English is not my first nor second language so there'll be many mistakes throughout my check ins!

Sounds pretty darn good for English being an extra language. Smile

You certainly have your work cut out for you. I think the habits are excellent in themselves for many and great disciplinary training grounds for those who find as time goes on that more is called for. It's been that way for me in the sense that I can pretty much always come back to Vanilla if an experiment seems like it's capsizing the boat.

OK, so i'm back from holiday at my mom's and although i've ditched my previous plan to stick to N days and S days while i was there , i haven't gained weight at all (i lost a little... yay!!!).

My habits are not ingrained yet. Far from it. I've taken a step back and am being generous and patient with myself... i do have a lot to lose and years of disordered eating to overcome.

My biggest challenge it getting out of the diet mentality. Even on No-S i obsess over my eating habits. Wish it could be simpler and i could just live and eat 3 times a day like many people seem to do with minimun effort.

oolala and Bluebell, thank you so much for your support! You have no idea how it helps!

So what if it takes you some effort? Besides, most of the world can't do it.

But it would be nice. I think I would have to lose part of my brain to ever be someone who didn't think about what I eat at all.
