some good points IMO. They also point out that weight loss is a marathon,
not a sprint; and to eat with intention rather than eating on autopilot.

Even though most of my days have been 'red' days lately, I still am considering myself to be on the No S plan and am committed to it for 2017.
Today had been OK until dinner (more than a plateful) but no sweets, no snacks, and nothing more until tomorrow morning at breakfast.

Last week was a road trip week and it was difficult to have typical N days. I did the best I could and I did have to eat more often to keep from getting headaches and to be able to keep a pleasant disposition around my traveling companion and those we were visiting with. I do not travel well--I look...

I am having a successful week. One unsuccessful day in the middle of January on a weekday. My weekends were quite tame and many weekend days were as if it were a weekday, just because I felt like it. Sweets aren't very appealing lately. My weight this morning is 136# so I appear to have lost two pou...

January nearly over and I have been staying with it. I am determined to see where No S takes me during 2017. I will record my weight on Wednesday, Feb 1st and I believe it will show a loss of perhaps a couple of pounds. We'll see.

This week going well. I ate at a family get-together for lunch today--it was one of those buffet places where you can go back multiple times for multiple plates of food. I filled one plate of food substantially and did not go back for seconds. I avoided the dessert buffet as well. Yay!

Thank you, Merry.
I am here for week two, 2017. My weekend was just like N days because
that's what I felt like. I didn't crave sweets at all, didn't want any. Next
weekend, I'll have sweets if I care to, but we'll see. I felt content.

I've completed my first week of 2017 successfully and I'm very happy about that :)
I haven't been hungry for sweets and I probably won't even want any this weekend but we'll see.
I will definitely be back here next week.
