I am still on the No S path. I have been so busy that I haven't been able to post. I still haven't had a completely green week yet, but a few things have changed. 1. Sweets don't have the same attraction for me anymore. I have had candy on some S days and they just aren't so enjoyable anymore. Last ...

I am with you on the exercise. I have been very inconsistent with it. I am trying to find a way to motivate myself. If you have any secret motivation tips please share.

Good Foods Bad Foods

I was thinking about how we have been taught to demonize some foods and glorify others. As time goes on everything seems to change lists over and over. One days eggs are evil the next day they are the best thing you can eat. I am sure you can all think of at least 5 foods that have moved from one li...

It is hard when don't want to have to tell someone you're restricting your eating on a given day. I think telling her at a later time when there is no chance of offending her is a wise idea.

Another week done. Overall I am pleased with my progress. I thought about getting on the scale but I decided it wouldn't be worth it. I don't want to make my focus weight loss. So for now I will avoid the scale. My clothes aren't fitting much differently anyway so I would probably be disappointed. I...

Marye, some days are definitely more challenging than others. I was thinking that maybe we need a few big tests thrown at us every now and then just to see just how far we have come in the process.

I have noticed with myself and others that when we nibble on what I call "empty" foods we tend to eat all the time. We are always grabbing at a little something here and there. Empty foods would be things like crackers.

No S News:
Wednesday was great.
Thursday didn't go so well.
I am beginning to see an every other day pattern here. I think I will start using the HabitCal so I can have a visual.

I don't feel nearly as anxious about another round of S Days as I did the first two times. That is a good sign.

I admire you for staying home. It is truly a wonderful gift for those who are able to do so. I did for a short time but financial issues forced me back to work. If I could leave my job today and stay home I would do it without hesitation. Enjoy it! Don't feel guilty!

I discovered that I did need to add a little more food to my breakfast. I can manage quite well in between bfast and lunch now.

I still haven't figured out the late afternoon urge yet. I suppose I will have to explore that idea that maybe it is mental. You all may be right about that.

Hunger and Craving Patterns

I posted this in my journal, but decided to put it here too. I was thinking about the rhythm of my eating today. Between breakfast and lunch I usually have true legitimate hunger. Between lunch and dinner I have strong cravings/urges to eat, but not real hunger. Has anyone else experienced this? I w...

I did have a better day! Yesterday went smoothly. Getting past the 3:00 munchies is hard. I just drink a big ole cup of water and try to do something besides think about it. I am hoping before long I will not even have the munchies at all.

Yesterday was a fail in the seconds and sweets department. I was feeling a little stressed about my huge To Do List.

I have been walking most days. I try for 1 mile. I hope to increase that each week. It take me about 25 minutes to walk that mile.

I too toyed with low-carb before. I will admit that I felt much better on a diet with more protein and less starch. Even though I couldn't stick with a strict low-carb diet I do make sure I eat ample protein.

I guess the way I'm looking at it is, dieting and then binge eating is just making me bigger and bigger. At least if I stop doing that, stop eating so much junk, stop grazing all day, and stick to 3 meals a day I won't keep getting bigger. Eventually the weight will hopefully start coming off and r...
