Happy birthday!

I grew up in Cottonwood-- we had a few acres on the Verde River-- pretty much paradise for a ten year old kid! Wave to the red rocks for me! Are you going to Oak Creek?

Yes, Happy Birthday! And Sedona is so gorgeous; it is certainly the proper environs for celebration, even if it's just staring at the cliffs. How long does it take you to get there?

Thank you all for the bday wishes!! Kaalii, my other daughter's bday is May 9th! Oh and our little dogs bday is the 8th and yes we celebrate our dogs bdays too. Crazy month for us!

It's been a weird week. I haven't had a single green day. I'm just feeling really resistant to doing much of antything lately. I've been slacking off on everything lately-- housework, to-do list ect. It's not like me and I'm hoping it's just a temporary glitch. Maybe it's menopause? I even fell asleep in the middle of the day two days in a row.

I'm not sure what to do about my resistance to,NoS. I keep feeling like this ultra-strictness does not feel like normal eating yet I'm pretty sure if I don't stick to NoS, I'll regain all my weight. There's just no perfect answer.

Anyway I'll figure it out. Soon hopefully.

Break: handful nuts
Lunch: BBQ chicken salad, sf tea
Red: couple bites baked sweet potato
Dinner: adobo chicken, quinoa, salad
Red: lollipop, 2 caramels, several mango/ginger candies

1 hr yoga

Maybe your mind and body are just taking a bit of a break after lots of activity?

I have a hard time being compliant in April / May with Easter / birthdays for lots of us / anniversary - weird how all the best people are born around now Smile

I kind of decided that what I'm doing with No S is trying to eat moderately, not "normally". I won't hijack here, but might talk more on my own check in.

I thought maybe something was wrong with my mail, but no, you haven't posted for awhile.

Are you finding some mods that work?

What is NOT normal is for humans to eat willy nilly with abundant food available and not gain weight or have eventual problems. Without scarcity, cultures do not stay slim unless they have self-imposed habits of limitation, though they don't usually see it as burdensome limitation, and eating is usually meal-based.

I'm hoping you're having so much fun or meaningful activity that posting just doesn't fit in for now. Hugs!

Hi oolala & kaalii!

Thanks so much for checking on me. Been a crazy time for me. Busy w/ bdays, graduation, activism and then I had to get my daughter ready for her 8th grade trip to DC. I've also been having some weird health issues (my ears been blocked for weeks) which is making exercise difficult.

My weight is up a bit but I'm back on track today. I just can't do NoS right now. I'm tired of having guilt for wanting a piece of fruit in the afternoon or a bite of cucumber when I'm prepping dinner. I'm feeling the strain of having to be perfect. Being on any kind of plan right now just makes me want to scream. The good news is I'm still doing something that resembles NoS. Three meals but less rigidity. It feels healthy to me to be a little more relaxed about it all.

I haven't posted because I didn't feel like hearing all the reasons it's a bad idea. I will of course keep an eye on my weight and if it doesn't work out then I'll get back on the Vanilla train. For now it seems good but I know it'd never be possible if I didn't get my meal habits down first. I guess it kind of feels like taking off the training wheels.

-39 lbs

Break: smoothie
Lunch: turkey burger, plain yogurt w fruit
Snack: nectarine, cherries
Dinner: bowl of chickpea curry w rice , glass wine
Snack: cherries

Hope everyone is well!

I'm glad life is full, hope you enjoyed the birthday season.

I'm sorry if I made you feel judged for commenting on your "normal eating" post, I really didn't intend it that way. I was more mulling over stuff in my own head. That's why I took it over to my own thread instead.

I feel very badly over this, as it feels like maybe not the first time that I've commented in what I thought was support, but obviously made you feel unwelcome in your own thread. Perhaps it is my poor turn of phrase when writing messages? So, anyway, I'll shut up now, but please know there is space on this board for all sorts of mods and I don't think anyone will come to tell you that what works for you is a bad idea!
