Thank you oolala53 for all your wise words and experience, what you say makes total sense. I just need to somehow get it to penetrate past the logical bit of my brain and REALLY take it on board. I guess it just takes lots of practice. That's really funny about the WTH syndrome, I think those were l...

Wed - FAILURE Thur - SUCCESS I'm disappointed about the Wed failure. It started out small - I made a batch of ginger oat biscuits for the kids and wanted to taste test one after lunch. But this is where the black and white success/failure thing always gets me.... Once I realise I'm going to have to ...

Sat & Sun: I started out Sat thinking I might even just continue with No S all weekend since I'm in a pretty comfortable pattern with the 3 meals but boy did that go out the window!! It all started with chocolate after breakfast on Sat and went downhill from there, not helped by a birthday party on ...

Fri: SUCCESS

...but only just, a few close calls. I was soooo tired after getting up at 4:30am, & a few times caught myself mindlessly reaching for something.

B: 2 buckwheat crepes, nut butter & fruit
L: toasted sandwich, veg
D: half a huge felafel/salad roll

SUCCESS B - Greek yoghurt, muesli, fruit L - veg burrito bowl D - chickpea burger pattie (no bread), gf pesto pasta, steamed veg. I left half the burger because I was FULL. Getting back in touch with hunger & fullness has been a big bonus of no S for me. When I snacked all the time I think my stoma...

I was thinking I didn't really need to do this daily check-in but now, 2.5 weeks in, I'm struggling. The novelty has worn off, I've had 3 fails in the last week and today I've come so close to failing again (though haven't yet touch wood)... the chocolate is calling me. Two of those fails were prett...

Yes me too! I was so mad at myself yesterday for staying on track all day then stuffing it after dinner and having to put a red, I thought about that today when I was tempted to snack!

I really like your ideas LifeisaBlessing, but I do think it depends on the individual and in particular whether you're the sort of person who can stop at "one small treat". Personally, I find it easier to not start than to start and then stop (a bit like an alcoholic with 'just one drink'). I also t...

Learning to serve the right amount first time

I'm really happy with how things are going on No S this time around... BUT the thing I'm finding hardest is actually 'no seconds'. I'm so used to snacking a lot & eating small meals that I'm having trouble learning to put enough on my plate to satisfy my hunger without needing to go back for more. I...

I'm an amateur triathlete so swim, ride & run (around 3 sessions per week each) as well as doing some weights and yoga. I also have 3 kids so workouts are pretty much whenever I can fit them in; sometimes early in the morning (5am), sometimes lunchtime, sometimes evening. I'm only a novice with 'No ...

I have no "S days." When I originally did vanilla NoS, S days always caused me to backslide. Sorry to hijack your thread Bluebell but I just posted in another thread about my fear of S days throwing me off course, and what LifeisaBlessing has said really resonates. Thank you, I am now definitely do...

I tried No S quite a while ago and loved it but only lasted one week! I know exactly why - I did really well during the week, then went back to normal eating on Sat/Sun, and just didn't get back on the wagon come Monday. I don't have a big weight problem at all, and I eat a lot of healthy food, but ...
