It's likely your appetite will go through changes at different times. It can be affected by all kinds of things. You'll find your rhythm as time goes on. Hope to see you on the How are you doing thread!

Yeah, I noticed this weekend I did much much better. I went over my calorie count, but not by as much. I stayed up late to eat only one night (out of 7 which is incredible for me) and that was because I slept bad all weekend and when I sleep bad I tend to eat. I gained back about a pound of what I lost last week, but I think a lot of that is water weight because Sunday ended up being a very salty day. Working on keeping my sodium in check this week so that I lose and don't have to deal with that water weight. I did find that I was getting fuller faster over the weekend and that I ended up throwing away food that I couldn't finish from my plate. Guess that's a good sign!

P.S. no rule against tracking. Use whatever is useful and feels doable. Someplace on the original site, I think Reinhard wants suggested that people consider tracking S’s on S days if they felt they were overdoing it but that took a little more character than I had! Or have.

Oh, yeah, 5000 would be considered “wild. I can see not wanting to repeat that. Must have been uncomfortable, too. Avoiding that kind of discomfort was actually my main motivation on no S, but it took me a long time to give up the excesses on the weekends. I sincerely felt it would compromise my N days. However, I soon lost the capacity to pack as much in, even though I felt just as uncomfortable. I’m rooting for you!

Thanks for the advice. I'm just trying to remember the old adage of "moderation in everything" even on "S" days. I think I had a 5,000 calorie day two weekends ago and that completely derailed me for an entire week. I would like to not repeat that this weekend. I still find planning my meals on the meal tracker every morning to be super helpful, even if I am going to go over my calories, which I do on "S" days. I'm also working on getting my sodium levels under control as I think a lot of the weight I'm gaining each week is water weight because of too much salt. So it's still important that I track.

Welcome! You are doing great. As a 10-year veteran, all I will say now is not to be in too much of a hurry to have ideal S days just to make quicker weight loss happen. But if you feel legitimately tired of overeating on S days, purposeful mods can be very effective. Also people will often go through adjustments over the months. You are in this for the long haul, like a marriage!

Hi! My name is Diana. I've been doing "No S" since April 27th. I've been on SP for years and years however. I have lost almost 20 lbs. on SP and about 4 lbs. since starting "No S." I have been struggling to get my eating under control on "S" days since I tend to do pretty well on "N" days. I keep a color chart like recommended in the book and had 4 red days in May, which isn't great, but as it was my first full month, I don't think is too bad either. I am aiming to have no more than 2 red days for June. So far this first week of June I have had nothing but green days. But on the weekends I tend to have several snacks and sweets. This weekend I am committing to having one snack or one sweet per "S" day and no more. I am still tracking my calories here as I am still new at this and want to make sure that I am staying at about the right amount of calories on my "N" days. I find that for the most part I am if I follow the diet correctly. I really like it and though I am a little hungry at night, I have a glass of milk each evening and that really helps. Any suggestions anyone has would be helpful!
