Ever tried to put a banana on your plate in an upright position in oder to fit in as much food as possible?

At the moment I am having a very hard time complying with the rules so I try to bend them as much as possible just to feel a bit less out of control.

Negative tracking is not very fruitful sometimes, it's been a couple of days since my last check-in. But at last a fail , today, just yet. Less than one hour after a big lunch I just had to have a tiny bit of cheese which had been left on the breakfast table and some grapes. And since a red day beca...

My weekend was quite active, Saturday was village cleaning day (tidy town day?) so I was basically doing squats for two hours and on Sunday I worked in the garden and went for a run. Had to prepone (?) my monthly weigh-in because I don't know whether I will find scales where I will be tomorrow. Base...

I figured having one this morning was not going to interfere with my No S habits. I haven't had a chocolate milk in months. So I bought it and enjoyed it, guilt free.

No BS , rest assured that everything I write is dead serious. I am an expert in liquoricy.

My next steps: 1. Start running at least 3x week to begin with. 2. Continue working towards 100% compliance on N days. 3. Continue to keep all temptations out of the house (so also no baking). 4. Work towards more moderate portions. This is a very sound plan. I think if you stick to 1-3 you will so...

I expect the excess weight I am carrying will come off much like it went on - in dribs and drabs, slowly, over the course of time..... Exactly, we are still human beings - even if we accomplish super-human tasks like doing No S - and a consistent calculable weight-loss would probably not be natural...
