Day 20 - S Day
Day 21 - S Day
YIPEEEEE!!!!! I did it. Now if I can just learn not to vertical stack, I'll be happy. Lost 2.7 kgs in 3 weeks, without really trying. No shovelglove, but walking 4-5 days per week, 4 kms.
Day 22 - Success
Day 23 - Success
Day 24 - Failure Crying or Very sad - morning tea and too much lunch - but I'll perservere. Back on track already - hanging out for dinner.
I'm trying to cut down on my alcohol consumption - tres difficult! Love my red wine. This really needs to become an s day treat for me, but I have to work up to it. I'm trying. Vertical stacking continues to be a prob - feast before the famine.

Not doing so well today. Failure in fact. Sad But I'll be back on track tomorrow, then S days. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Thanks Pete, vertical stacking on a smaller place is a good idea. It'd be good just to SEE the plate through the food. I'll get there.

since my last checkin I have had a great weekend with family visits, but lots of food and drink - allround great fun. But have hit major low this week, how to cope with depression etc .....
Anyway, I wil keep going and trying but not doing so good. My way of coping with probs is eat/drink etc.
Keep going, each day try again !!! Very Happy

Bugger! Though hanging with the family is always more fun with some grub.

I'm doing well with not eating at the moment, what with random stomach pains after I eat and all... You want it? Very Happy

I find with depressions, it's best to fill them in with some good soil, and then top with turf.

Unless you're not talking about depressions in the lawn? Smile

Try to have one good day...
Don't worry about it being perfect... We don't need or want perfection...
Who needs that?
Try to have a decent day... This should help to create a happy cycle instead of a vicious one...
Just forgive yourself and good for you for recognizing that you are trying to fix your sadness with food.. this isn't uncommon, but it obviously isn't going to help...
Just try your best... If you are trying, you can't be unhappy with that...
Even if it's not perfect... Only when we don't try anything, do we stay where we don't want to be... Setbacks are an inevitable part of our journey, and people who aren't going anywhere don't have setbacks..
So embrace where you are today and just relax... Be gentle on yourself for whatever screwups occur... You know why they are happening and consider yourself lucky that you aren't in denial!

Keep trying and you will turn this all around...
I also wrote to you on my own thread Nicky..
And,,,,, I have an old thread too on the "Off topic" section about coping with depression.. You might have to search for it a bit.... Perhaps some of the replies from people who wrote on that, including our lovely Reinhard, will be of help to you today..

Keep on truckin!!!
Love,
Cool Deb

Can't believe almost a week's gone by! Thanks guys for your support. Makes a hell of a difference.
Had an off and on kinda week with no exercise, but I seem to have gained back my determination, and had a great day today with a 45 minute walk at the end of it. So back on track!!
Hey Pete, I let my husband deal with those sort of depressions! Very Happy Green days instead of blue?

Can't believe it's almost a month since my last check in. Makes me aware of how important it is to keep in touch with NoS home and to maintain the support I get from reading all your posts. Can't do it on my own! Even though I haven't been checking in and have been off the rails a bit, every time I think about food I equate it with NoS - that's got to be a good thing. Even on my off days I have been sticking pretty well to NoS. It certainly controls what I eat.

I had a quick glance through some of the posts tonight and realise how much I've missed them. I'm off on holidays next week for three weeks so probably won't be able to check in too often, but NoS will be going with me! And I'll be back.

For all you people suffering from SAD in the US winter, I'll be in tropical Port Douglas in North Queensland, Australia, soaking up the sun (and humidity!) I'm going up to visit my daughter, husband and beautiful grandson and am so looking forward to it. Haven't seen them since September last year. My little grandson will have his first birthday while I am up there. I also have another grandson turning 1 before I leave, and another after I get back. Must be some kind of record!

Missed you all.
