Vielen Dank! Well, I'm not leaving, I'll stay right here (virtually speaking, on this board) as I am not turning my back on No-S. I'm still trying hard to only have three meals a day, which is getting difficult since those meals are so much smaller now. I think today I might have to allow myself a s...

Thank you for your input! Those are my plans, yes. I'd like to lose some weight quickly to give me a good start and then establish myself in the "comfort" of No-S where I will continue to lose weight, even if it's only at a rate of 1 lb a month - as long as it goes down. And today for my first day b...

Oh, you bet I'll be back to 'regular' No-S the day I get to Germany (or as soon as the big, sad "Oh Karin, you were doing so well, why did you let yourself go AGAIN???" is behind me). My mother's food is excellent, and so is the German bread, and I will be so glad that I can eat all these things and...

Confession...

I think I have a confession to make. I have decided that in the next 6 weeks, I want to incorporate some aspects of WW back into my diet. I want to be aware of what I am eating in those three meals a day, and I want to make sure I am not going overboard on the weekend. So that's the sad truth: I wil...

Thank you for all of your support. It's tough, just like "pangelsue" said, there is nothing nice to say about someone who was thin and then got fat AGAIN. And not just a few pounds. A whole lof of weight. I changed a few things already - I did not exercise. I hated exercising. But January 2nd I join...

Yeah, it didn't last very long. But going 5 days without chocolate and then not eating any until the 6th day around 2 PM isn't bad! This was my first real week on No-S. The first week was only 3 days because I started on a Wednesday, the second week had my son's birthday on Thursday, and this week w...

Where did my chocolate craving go?

A funny thing is happening. It's Saturday, right? I haven't had a taste of chocolate all week long. That's horrible. I mean, chocolate is my most favorite thing in the world. I always thought I can't do without it. All this week, I was thinking about chocolate and how I would eat a ton of it on the ...

In need for encouragement...

It's the patience I am lacking. This morning when I looked at myself in the mirror, I was contemplating to go back to WW, or a seriously calorie-restricted diet, or even go back to fasting because I was sooo depressed about myself, my body, and how my fat makes me feel. For the past two years I have...

Hi there! I'm sorry, but I think you should go back and read the suggestions at www.nosdiet.com again. You might have misunderstood something. I eat. I eat 3 solid (and with SOLID, I mean SOLID) meals a day. I eat whatever I crave with those 3 meals, and I eat as much as I need to feel full. I am no...

... but I can't have one. At least not until Saturday - and it seems to be so far away!

What do YOU do when the need for a treat hits you hard, mid afternoon, and you're stuck at work, at very close distance to the vending machine??

Ok, day 13 (all SUCCESS), but weight is back because of Easter chocolate overeating. I'm afraid that I am going to yoyo like this for ever.
Mood down.
