I have not been consistent up to now. Do I not believe it can be done anymore? At 58 am I giving up? I can't give up. No S is the sanest eating plan there is. What reason could I have to not commit to this way of eating? It is a gift. God please help me to start again today and commit to it.

Beginagain, do you feel like there is something in particular pulling you off program?

I think when cravings hit me I give in too quickly without a fight.

Have you had any luck with breaking it down into steps? Like-- no snacking after dinner, and then after you have that down, no snacking after lunch. I really believe in the hormonal basis of eating behavior and I think our systems get primed for food when we normally eat. So to cut out a snack time takes some time.

And after dinner is the step for me to take too because that is when I fail every time even if I had a great day up to then.
Thanks for your help Larkspur.

Well done you, I'm pleased I had a green week and have lost some weight since I started at the beginning of April Smile

Yesterday, although Saturday, I had a Green day! It was my third day back. I've decided at this stage in my life, to accept whatever the outcome of sticking with this. Let this be my way of eating and exercising, with no expectations.

Day 4=Green! I'm so happy to be doing this. Mentally and emotionally I feel better too, which is a big deal to me. All things considered, it's going to be best for me to respect the Sometimes exception. It's going to need to be a really special S Day event for me to trade a Green for a Yellow on my Habitcal.

I was 58 when I started. I sincerely was not willing to live with the habits of the previous 40 years. Resolving every day to resist bingeing and nearly every day succumbing. Being sick with overeating, both mentally and physically. I was lucky not to doubt that I would persist for at least two years. I knew that's the minimum to truly adjust! What choice did I have? Everything else was MORE suffering than anything I would have to put up with on No S.

One of the major differences for people who finally lose weight- and most have failed multiple times- is that they refuse to let slips derail them for long periods of time. They get better at resisting the What-the-Hell default. You can do it, too! It doesn't have to be linear. It's the trend over time that counts!

I don't know how to thank you for you're encouraging advice, Oolala. I do know I will refer to it often, because you've been right where I am, and you know what it takes to change. Thank you! I have had green days up to now, but could feel discouragement coming, then after work I looked and saw your message, I haven't checked in these last few days. So glad I did before going home.
