Well I have dropped 20 pounds recently without really trying. I am sure it is due to a drop in stress levels and stress eating. I am hesitant to even post this, because I've gained weight back so many times before. Anyway, trying to nos again and stay somewhat sane:

B= vegetable oml. potatoes (didn't finish either), one slice of toast with butter, coffee black

L=tba

D=tba

going to try to walk dog in the evening. It has been very hot and humid in CA, but it is my goal

Milczar,

So glad to see you back - and glad to hear your stress levels have dropped!

Look forward to seeing you a bit more regularly now that your life is on a bit more of an even keel (or am I assuming too much?)

Cheers,

KCCC

Takes time. Take it one step at a time, and don't over-extend.

Have not been doing the best with nos. But I'm doing something right, because I am maintaining and not gaining. Which is a huge win for me. It is not nos. The plan is great, it is just psychological for me. But I really feel that I am ready to get back on track. My goal is to keep it simple and not over analyze. 3 meals a day and try to walk the dog. That is it. Deep sigh, I can do this

Start weight: 264
now: 238.5

This is good news. But.....and its still big =) .............I have been maintaining. Good and not good. And it is probably because 1) I'm not walking as much as I should 2) I'm cheating with sweets here and there 3) I'm eating things that can't be justified as one plate full 4) too many parties and libations lately

Menu yesterday

B= some pancakes with syrup =(, part of an omlette and hash browns, oj

candy=(

L= turkey and gravy, potatoes, salad with ranch

D= two slices of pizza, oj, too much wine

no walk

so..............the culprits are evident..............I'm eliminating the cheating and hopefully heading towards 200.

Today is another day

2/27/10

Still maintaining. Better than gaining that is for sure. Have not been true to nos. Getting on the horse again, trying to lose rather than just maintain.

Checking back at end of day.

I am new to No-S and found your log to be very helpful. What I learned from you is that it's always OK to come back and that No-S is working. I also learned that it's not going to be fast or always easy and that there will be frustrations. All of these things seem to be very normal and we just work through them. I hope that you will continue posting - I appreciate it!

Thanks Rocketgal! The plan is simple, but not always easy. Why? Self-control is not easy. Overeating is what I do in times of stress and celebration. And controlling how much you eat and when can be a challenge. I do know a few things. This is by far the only "reasonable" way to lose weight. I've done other plans, such as weight watchers, and found myself really crazed and hungry and deprived. Weight Watchers really worked for me. But there is no way I could sustain it for life. And you become obsessed with food and measuring, no fun. No s works. Especially if you have a substantial amount of weight to lose. Walking makes it work better. I know when I was walking 3 or 4 miles with the dog 5 days a week, I saw better results. During Christmas break I was up to 5 miles a day. But that isn't always realistic with daily work and other responsibility. But anybody can walk. I need to lose about 80 to 90 pounds and I can walk up to 5 miles a day without any kind of pain, except for maybe sore feet.

I have lost 20 some pounds. Very very slowly. Because, honestly I stray from the plan often. But even that loss has helped me wear smaller sizes, look better in clothes, and have more energy, and regular periods again (tmi!) So there is progress!

Last night I saw some pictures of me. Even though I know I have lost weight, I still felt that I looked huge in them. It is a daily struggle not to go running back to some fad diet.

Some reasons that I am maintaining and not losing:

-not consistent with walking
- too much snacking and sweets sneaking in
- not sticking to 3 meals a day

I've done weight exercises the last two days. It is Jorge Cruises program, I use to do it before and I liked it. It's 4 sets of 12 for each exercise and you alternate days upper and lower body. Feeling a little sore, but am going to try to stick with it. Yesterday was bad food wise. Too much snacking and seconds. Need to tighten that up.

I think you're doing well. You're slowly losing weight, and working toward a healthier way of eating. You've got a plan. These are good things.

I went over to my mom's house the other day. She was heating up some lunch for my father, and since I was visiting, she was going to make me some too. My mom has struggled with her weight her whole life. And I remember when my grandmother once saying the reason for it is that my mom snacks. That she eats before and after the meal (while preparing it). And sometimes has seconds. My mom has always been a housewife, and rarely eats outside of the house. She cooks good quality, healthy food. Doesn't eat fast food or junk food. So I was watching her prepare this food for us, and all the while I was thinking about my grandmother's comment. And it was true, my mom was tasting spoonfuls of food. Then she served herself two helpings. One that she ate in the kitchen, and one that she ate with us. I say all this, not to put my mom down, I love her and know how hard the struggle with weight is.

But it got me to thinking about this nos plan. There has to be something to be said for no snacking and no seconds. I can see how a lifetime of snacking and seconds can put on the pounds.

so for those of us snackers, and second helping/buffet etc. people, this plan makes us take a conscious look at our eating habits. I am going to try to give it a more diligent try this time. And stick it out for some time, not expect immediate results, focus on good habits and following the simple rules of the plan, walking of course, and not having snacks. It is never too late to try again.

Well I have been maintaining for some time now. I was 233 and now I am at 237.5, have been between those two for a year or more. So I am going to start nosing again. Try to walk. This is my plan. Easy does it, because I know if I run to ww, I will end up starving and miserable. I have been half assing nosing, lol, for 5 years now, and if I just did it for real, I would probably be fine. I figure any change at this point will be a good one. So I am starting yet again, will try to post daily.

not so very proud of my eating, but I'm posting to try to get started again, motivated, and eliminate some patterns. So far cheese and eating out seem to be the biggies, as well as cutting out the alcohol. one day at a time

Well I lost some weight because I got strict. Then I let go for a few days and gained 5 pounds back. but I am still down 5 or 6. I need to not do these extreme swings. I'm either starving or eating non stop throughout the day. Yesterday the excuse was that we had a potluck at work. So it was an all day eating fest. But it didn't have to be. So I am back on track today.

October 15, 2012, Monday

Well this morning weighed in at 224! Which is a nice low for me. I started thinking that that is only 74 pounds from what I weighed in high school. Now I know that 74 sounds like a lot. But is better than 100 or 150 or 200. I can do 74. My boyfriend has recently lightened what he is eating and lost some weight which is motivating me. As usual my quick fix mind is thinking WW. But I have to give nos an honest try. Which I have not been doing.

So, I am launching today. Lots of stress at work. But I am at a low 224. That is only 25 pounds from being under 200! I can do it. I refuse to become extreme and fanatical about it. I can do this sane and slower, but do it none the less. Here is my prayer.

Well I am hovering between 224 and 228.
Which is frustrating. But I am probably eating junk too much and not sticking as strictly to the one plate, but grazing/picking while I wait for dinner. Alcohol is a factor and occasional dessert. I know I can do this.

Hi Milczar, I was reading back through some of your log posts, and it reminds me of my own struggles - I even lost 40 pounds 10 years ago following Jorge Cruise's 8 Minutes plan.

Thanks also for posting your eating - that's a brave thing, and your reflection on it (the junk is bad) is so candid and honest!

It sounds like you've had some great success - a 30 pound weight loss is fantastic!

Yes honesty isn't always pretty. But let's face it, we are fat because we eat too much junk. I didn't become overweight because I over ate carrots. I'm on Thanksgiving vacation, which isn't helping the healthy eating. I feel entitled to vacation food. And no good can come of this thinking. This morning I'm at 220. Which I wish was 180, but is better than 250. Considering I have been eating out a lot, I am very happy with 220. Onward and upward.

I was just looking back at my posts. In Feb. of 2008 I was weighing in at 265! Wow, I forgot about that! Posts don't lie. This morning I weighed in at 220. If my math is correct that is 45 pounds less. It has been so gradual, 4 years, that I forgot to notice. And not even good years. I went through a divorce, major work stress, and was really not nosing that well. Tons of failure days. I still have a long ways to go... but 45 pounds is nothing to sneeze at. I am proud of that. And in this struggle of weight loss, we have to take happiness and success where it comes.

Dec. 10

Ok so I am trying to lower the sodium and heat more whole foods. I have had blood pressure issues for years. And I am pretty sure I can attribute weight, family history, very stressed job, and drinking too much. Nothing like a few drinks at the end of a long hard day. Sooooooo, I am trying to lower my blood pressure. The low salt thing will be a challenge. And I will have cheat days.

B = 1oz almonds
4 prunes

L = oatmeal, banana, apple

D = 1 toast with butter, 1 egg, 1 cup lentil kale soup, one orange

yes I am craving a big cheese pizza slice, but my belly does feel full from the fiber, so if I can swing healthier most days, I will be happy

walk 2 miles
no alcohol
I will try not to attack any cheese pizza

Low salt will be a challenge but your health is worth it. You'll also find that eating less intensely salted foods will make those old favorites taste really salty after awhile. It will make it easier to cut them later with more bland side dishes.

Happy New Year!

I barely use salt when cooking. Instead I use lots of fresh herbs. I think intense spices will also make you miss salt less. Especially slightly hot ones but all kinds work.

Good luck!

btw: how about meditation 2x5min/day? That really helped my dad.

Good suggestion. I don't think I will be able to do no salt 7 days a week. I kinda let loose over the holidays. Gained a bit. 220.6 this morning. Which isn't bad considering I have not been following any rules. Not a horrible holiday gain. It is Monday, and my goal is to go back to 3 meals a day and less processed food. Although I have a leftover sub sandwich that is calling my name in the fridge =)

onward

I am down about 50 pounds. But this time I have done it sanely. yes it took 4-5 years, because I have not been a strict noesser at all. But the best part is the sanity. When I was dieting and counting points I would get panic attacks before meals. Or if I had to go out to eat. Now I feel the panic coming, but then it subsides. And a voice comes on that says, you can eat a normal meal, without measuring or counting, normal food, in a reasonable serving and you will not gain weight. In fact you will probably lose weight over time. Sanity is priceless. Especially in this already insane world.
