Thanks for taking a look back to help me, Crystal, I appreciate it very much. As for me, yesterday I had a red day and today the weight has marked another 2 pounds more. I feel totally frustrated, but I am following my day as usual, I have eaten what was on my plate, and I have cooked some spaghetti...

Thanks for the encouragement girls! As a result of the frustration, yesterday I had another red day. I did my three meals well, but at night I had two pieces of cake. The result of this: 2 lbs more today. I'm at the starting point where I started this month, I had 4 lbs lost, but I've recovered ever...

Thank you very much for your response, Crystal!

True, patience is the key in No S. I do not usually be patient, and less in terms of weight, but I will learn! :lol: :)

Short message: try not to get down on yourself for the process. Reinhard himself said on the Facebook group that the psychological side is the biggest obstacle. I doubt he had as many troubling thoughts and mental challenges to the structure for whatever reason. But we're not him. So useful and tru...

The only problem with the slow weight loss is that there’s a nagging doubt in my head - am I somehow cheating at this, doing it wrong? And has the weight loss stalled for good? I won’t know unless I carry on, so there’s the answer! I’m a bit frustrated because today we’re having a dinner ...

Today I have only had an ice cream and a mini Magnum extra. I want to leave a record because I have realized that since I cut the sugar during the week, I notice the sweets very sweet and with a smaller amount I have enough.

And I do not recognize myself !!!!! I am a new person!!! :lol: :P :D

It is normal to react with meals to stress situations if we have been doing it for a long time. I would have done the same in your place if I had seen my son like this ...:cry: Do not be discouraged, good habits will be established little by little.

I hope your son is better. A hug.

It is totally true what you say, if we follow a diet, next year we will probably weigh the same or more, while with No S it will not be like that :wink:

Cheer up with No S, I read your journal and you're doing very well!! :D

Dalia negra - If you love to read, and especially mysteries, you should totally give them a try. Start with A, but I do think the series gets better as it goes on. The entire series is set in the 1980’s, so Kinsey has to use a lot of ingenuity to solve the cases - no internet, no cell phones. The...

Technically, a person doesn't trade S days. She uses one of two exception days a month. (NWS) That's mostly to avoid the mental energy to start wondering if this or that day should be traded for a weekend day, when it's possible that there will be only one day a person has an S on a weekend. That d...
