Goldilocks' Diary for starting my Non-Vanilla NO S journey

My Five "NOS" 7 days a week:

No more than 4 meals per day

No restrictions on type of food at each meal

No supersize portions

No seconds

No caloric beverages between meals

After these become second nature, I may add in more small things like include a veg/fruit at each meal, and limit sweets to one small item per day, no more than one caloric drink per day.....but NOT until I master the basic list of 5 rules first!! (Thank you Simmstone for your art analogy)

Looks like you have a solid base to work from!

Now comes the hard part... patience and mastery Smile

Best of luck to you on this path!

Simmstone, more words of wisdom "patience and mastery". I will remember that when temptation arises!

Random check-in, still on plan, scale only down 1 pound from a week ago, but I will take it...

Struggling a bit with some life stress and major streak of insomnia, I think it's been over two weeks since I have had what I would consider a decent nights sleep. I know stress and sleep are a factor in weight loss, hoping those both improve and scale will move again.

Also, I think I may invoke someone elses mod of "no starving" we had an awful fish fry meal at a new restaurant the other night, I mean barely edible-I only had a few bites, so had some yogurt and a spoon of Peanut Butter before bed. I think this is an acceptable exception. The fryer was clearly kept at too low of a temp, my fish and chips were soggy and completely soaked in oil....and the coleslaw was warm almost cooked, like they had it under the heat lamp. Ewe, just ewe!

On a positive note, I made an amazing slow baked fall apart pork roast with my new favorite BBQ sauce Stubbs Hickory Bourbon (no hfcs, major win!). Sooo good on a soft bakery roll with some jalapenos, along with a mountain of steamed broccoli with buttered breadcrumbs on top.

Yes, a disappointing meal is a challenge on No S. I used to have trouble with hunger before bed (still would, with no dinner) but it’s not a problem now. Good luck!

TY Larkspur! Encouraging to hear bedtime hunger fades after a while, still struggle a bit but I KNOW it's all in my head not in my tummy. I'm finding if I am heavy on the protein portion at dinner its seems to be helping. I am practicing patience, very hard for us ESFJs!

No starving was my mod, I've only invoked it 2 or 3 times but it's kept me on track Smile

Thank you Soprano!

I had a wonderful day of satisfying meals yesterday. I am not planning to take the time to document all my meals here, but I know if I pay attention there are definitely some meals that last longer and make me feel my best. So here is a sample (yesterdays actual meals) that left me both satisfied and full of energy between meals, and for the first night a LONG time I actually had a decent night sleep (although I have been up since 4:30...)


Breakfast:

Blueberries, two eggs and sprouted grain toast, Siggi's whole milk skyr (yogurt)

Lunch:

8 large spears of homemade pickled asparagus (summer fav), buffalo chicken tenders, chocolate cupcake with frosting - wait it was more like frosting with a side of cupcake...

Dinner:
one scoop of scratch mac-n-cheese, pulled pork roast (no bun), heaping serving of coleslaw

Full and Happy. (borrowed from Blawnde article link photo caption in "resources that support No S" Thread)
