The clean plate club is really hard to leave.

I too have more success these days at recognizing and being able to leave sweet things when they are too much. Part of what helps is having full permission to have some another day :)

Re: Octavia is finally checking in!

Put it in perspective a little, 1/2 lb a month is nearly half a stone a year. So 2 years and a stone off that's pretty impressive if you are enjoying your foods. Certainly better than the opposite gaining half a stone a year which at your age (mine too) can so easily happen :)

There is a raft of information about controlling diabetes with low carb and intermittent fasting. It's my belief that small adjustments can have big impacts on our health.so not necessarily a need to go keto or 24 hour fasts. Just consistent better habits will help.

Re: automated eating tracker

Hey Soprano! Your stability and kindness is great to have around right now. I feel buffetted by waves and feeling more fear about my body than I have in a long time. I appreciate your solid presence right now as I try to remember this will pass. Hey Auto thank you so much for your kind words. All m...

Re: liveitup's check-in

We've had a few RVs (motorhomes in the UK) great holidays but limiting in the UK. Parking was always an issue. Guess that won't apply in the US. Enjoy your search.

Check for damp, pretty common in the ones over here and layout is important. :)

Robin you are doing great, we all slip up. The thing is to learn from it, on its own it won't cause a weight problem it is what you do afterwards that matters.

Sounds like you are doing really well. Cutting sugar will really help. I kinda combine nos with intermittent fasting. I do IF for health reasons. If you can leave 12 hours between dinner and breakfast I'm sure there are health benefits. If you then want to explore it further it isn't hard to slowly ...

Re: Jen’s Eating Simplified (:

So much in this thread resonates with me re IE. I think the best thing I took from it was there is no bad food and I can have what I truly want. I learnt that actually when I stop and taste what I thought were treats I really didn't like them very much. I think reading The French don't diet by Dr Wi...

Re: Octavia is finally checking in!

Good to see you back Octavia and what an interesting conversation. Re exercise I got a yoga dvd over 2 years ago with two 30 minute sessions. I committed to do it twice a week becoming familiar with one program then the other. While I try and set a day to do it if I don't fancy it I never force it. ...

Hi Auto, thanks for stopping by my thread. I'm pleased you have your sabbatical confirmed. Bet flowerpup is loving the long walks. The habit book sounds great. Like you I notice my sleep and also moods are worse after drinking. I'm trying to limit it to weekends. It has tended to creep up during loc...

Re: Soprano

I hopped on the scales this morning to find I'm at my lowest weight in over 15 years.

I'm really pleased.

Thanks to a combination of IE, No'S and IF I think I've settled into a way that suits me.

Hope you are all doing ok

Re: Tenth year

Sounds like a perfectly sensible solution to me Dave. I've listened to my body a lot during the pandemic and not added to my stress with too strict an eating regime.

It's paid off too with weight loss.

I definitely second the advice above re who to listen to re the pandemic.

Stay safe

Re: Get Easier/Automatic?

Which elements are you hoping will get easier? Not snacking has definitely been easier over time, it is rare I have a snack unless I am genuinely hungry and a while a way from a meal. Though on holidays and celebrations I do. Not eating sweet stuff I don't even think about anymore as I made a consci...

Really interesting posts to read about IE. I too had some success and similar experiences with it. I would recommend anyone who feels they can't do without certain foods or feels deprived do some reading and work on IE. It can be done within the confines of NoS. The hardest part for me re IE was dec...

Since my post on Jan 2nd much of what I decided went out of the window over time. Too many rules just don't work, though it kept me focused for a while. During my first year on NoS I lost a stone, then due to stress at work I became lax on the rules and steadily put half a stone on. During lockdown ...

Not been on here for a while, sorry you have had a tough time. Sabbatical sounds great.

I do think rebound weight gain is a real thing but I'm sure you've got it now.

Take care
