The month of May has been a mix for me so far.
A road trip the first week--not so good. I make allowances for being
on holiday, so not a big deal really. I got back on track as soon as
I returned home.
Last week was all good until Friday, when I started my weekend a day
early...so a three-day weekend it was.
This week is going quite well--successful so far.
I'm determined to finish out the month of May with Success.

Dang! that reminds me I forgot to add my powdered protein this morning, something I was going to do as an experiment.

Do you grind your flax? I keep a bit ground in the freezer. I find the whole seeds just pass through, though I won't tell you the evidence for that. Confused

It's funny how Reinhard says somewhere to eat what your grandparents would recognize. My darling grandfather lasted quite awhile on meat, potatoes, and whiskey, but I'm willing to take my chances adding whey, flax, and vegetables, among other things.

I buy a bag of flax seeds already ground at Costco and I keep it in the freezer. I sprinkle two tablespoons on top of the bowl after I stir in the other fixin's. I don't like the texture if I mix in the flax so that's why I sprinkle on top.

Hi minimizer, Are the whey protein, flax seeds & banana all going on top of the oatmeal? And is that unsweetened oatmeal? sorry for my questions. Thanks, Trace(Whosonfirst)

Hi, Trace...It's plain, unsweetened, one-minute oatmeal. After I prepare it, I add banana (either sliced or mashed) and a scoop of unsweetened, unflavored whey protein. I sprinkle two tablespoons of ground flax seeds over the top of that.
I have never liked the long-cooking rolled oats or steel-cut oats, and I believe the quick oats are healthful enough. This is my daily breakfast and
I never get tired of if Smile

Last week was an extremely unusual week for me and my family. I returned to No S by Thursday though and had a good ending to my week.
I'm expecting to have a good week coming up, Vanilla No S along with plenty of walking and daily activity. No sitting around and moving lots, that's the plan! Eat less & move more!

Hope the unusual week was for good reasons. No S can help keep the deviations moderate.

Here's to a green first week of October.

Well actually it was due to health concerns of a family member. Doing better now but disordered stress eating is my default during such times as those.
This week is getting off to a good start for October.
Still in training for the holidays! I think I'll make that my 'signature'.

Tomorrow morning I start my new year, a new adventure in an orderly and more classic way of eating. I'll devote a year to the No S way and by the end of 2017 I expect to be somewhat slimmer hopefully, but more importantly I will be eating in sanity. And on and on after that! Go me, ha!!

I sure do appreciate you, oolala!

I am having a good week and am determined to have a good year.
Starting the year weighing 138# and my BMI is currently 26.1
I think I'll weigh myself on the first day of each month this year.

And keep going no matter what the scale says. Delightfully short people like yourself often have to tweak tweak tweak plates AND S days. But so what? The time will pass anyway.

You're so right!
Still going well this week.
My aim is to make each meal high in vegetables and/or fruit.
Limit fats somewhat, especially saturated fats, but of course some
fat with each meal for satisfaction until the next meal.
I have totally eliminated caffeine and alcohol because they simply
don't agree with me.
Adequate protein, adequate produce, a moderate amount of carbs
(mostly unrefined carbs), low in sodium whenever possible.
It's pretty easy to control the quality of my meals since I nearly
always eat at home.

Sounds very close to my plan for the first few years. And most successful loser/maintainers don't eat out much. You're right on track.

I haven't been hungry for sweets and I probably won't even want any this weekend but we'll see.
I will definitely be back here next week.

Thank you, Merry.
I am here for week two, 2017. My weekend was just like N days because
that's what I felt like. I didn't crave sweets at all, didn't want any. Next
weekend, I'll have sweets if I care to, but we'll see. I felt content.

Good to play it by ear. Eventually, S's can be the exception, not the default on S days.

This week going well. I ate at a family get-together for lunch today--it was one of those buffet places where you can go back multiple times for multiple plates of food. I filled one plate of food substantially and did not go back for seconds. I avoided the dessert buffet as well. Yay!

I swear, I think we should have "dry" days, like they do regarding booze some places. Sweets on weekends and 15 holidays a year. Good for you for creating your own dry day.

January nearly over and I have been staying with it. I am determined to see where No S takes me during 2017. I will record my weight on Wednesday, Feb 1st and I believe it will show a loss of perhaps a couple of pounds. We'll see.

I am having a successful week.
One unsuccessful day in the middle of January on a weekday.
My weekends were quite tame and many weekend days were
as if it were a weekday, just because I felt like it. Sweets
aren't very appealing lately.
My weight this morning is 136# so I appear to have lost two
pounds during my first month of this 2017 challenge.
BMI is now 25.7

I am having a successful week.
One unsuccessful day in the middle of January on a weekday.
My weekends were quite tame and many weekend days were
as if it were a weekday, just because I felt like it. Sweets
aren't very appealing lately.
My weight this morning is 136# so I appear to have lost two
pounds during my first month of this 2017 challenge.
BMI is now 25.7


Sounds like a very successful month, good for you!

Last week was a road trip week and it was difficult to have typical N days.
I did the best I could and I did have to eat more often to keep from getting headaches and to be able to keep a pleasant disposition around my traveling companion and those we were visiting with. I do not travel well--I look at it
in much the same was as Sick days--I do what I have to do to survive. Smile
This week I am back to normal and this Monday is going well.
Breakfast was my usual oatmeal with fixin's.
Lunch is ff Greek yogurt with blueberries, banana, and chopped pecans.
So far, so good.

If road trips are your biggest problem and you don't take them often, that's actually lucky. And even that could change with long term compliance.

Enjoy your N days.

I'm actually having a dreadful week but I think today is going to be better--at least it is so far. Feeling hopeful.

Even though most of my days have been 'red' days lately, I still am considering myself to be on the No S plan and am committed to it for 2017.
Today had been OK until dinner (more than a plateful) but no sweets, no snacks, and nothing more until tomorrow morning at breakfast.

Lent & Easter was a meaningful time for me this year. I didn't do anything special food related but I did give up an annoying habit.

Do you grind the flax yourself? Sorry if you've already answered this.
