Dvm~ I have a similar pair of jeans (I bet alot of us on this site do!). It's been a long time (years) since I've been in them tho. It is a goal, but not a short-term one....have alot of 'babysteps' to make it through first. I think it's good to set a series of mini-goals for yourself. If a person l...

Jaymiz~ I would be more than happy to ignore my scales until June 1st!! :D I know that getting weighed is a stumbling block for me. I used to get weighed every day (when I was on Weight Watchers) but then limited myself to once a week on No-S. Another psychological stumbling block for me is the fact...

I'm a total sweet-aholic. That has always been my downfall. Hate to sound less than optomistic here, but I am on week 3 and have all but given up. Week 1 and 2 I followed the diet to the letter and did not eat anything off limits during the week. However, I also did not loose an ounce, and that was ...

I feel the same way about pizza....pretty yummy stuff...and I know the calories/fat/etc can be pretty high. But still, if the idea is not to worry about what you eat so much as when (mealtime) and quantity (one plate) then a person shouldnt be hung up on whether its pizza or lettuce leaves...should ...

Thanks!

Thank you all for your great responses! I do know that this is all a 'process', and I love what you said, Angelka, about my 'old mentality being in its last throws before death'....that's a great mental image! I am not a big eater, never have been, so the weekly N days are not that tough for me. If ...

First S weekend....not so great....:(

I posted under another discussion heading that I was down because I had gained 1/2 pound on my first week of no-S. I got lots of positive feedback and that helped. 1/2 pound is really not that big a thing, and I know I stuck to the diet religiously the whole week...altho I am aware that I did not ea...

Can't get impatient...

I'm frustrated! Just finishing up my first week of No-S. I diligently followed the rules, but instead of losing I gained half a pound. Hoping to find some support I logged into what is rapidly becoming my favorite website and the first post I found was this one. What a help! It's a good feeling to k...

Exercise

I've thought about swimming as an alternative exercise. Not sure when I would find time to do it, but I know it would be helpful. I broke my foot a few years back and as part of my PT I had to do aquatic workouts. I really enjoyed it and it was surprising how much it helped. A person can do alot mor...

Thanks Jules

Thanks Jules! I will definitely look into the bike situation. I just figured as much discomfort as I have going up and down steps (down is much worse for some reason) that a bike would be out of the question. As far as the indian clubs I was trying to figure something out that could work as a substi...

Indian Club Workout

Thanks Jules (and Mavilu!) for the great exercise advice. I have seen those exercise 'half bikes' but figured they wouldnt work for me because of the knee issues. However, I never thought about using them for an upper body workout. I did check out the Indian Clubs and watched a few of the videos. I ...

Let's try this again....

Okay, so I was just trying to quote the last line from Judy's post about us all "sharing this adventure" and for some reason her whole message copied and posted before I knew what I did! (does it need to be said here that I am NOT exactly computer literate??? :roll: ) Then I wrote another message to...

Hi! I'm in a similar situation. I hurt my knees, and gained weight. Then I got plantar fasciitis from the weight gain, and could do even less, so I gained even more. I'm physically unable to walk any distance, and even standing up for long periods hurts me. I'm starting No S today. I turn 40 next m...

PS to Jules....

I forgot to mention, Jules....I also have had heel spurs and there isnt much in life more painful! I had one many years ago and then had another for the last couple years. The second time around was much worse and made walking almost impossible. Tried all the exercises, heat treatments, ultra sound ...

Getting old is not for sissies!

Thanks for your response, Bumpkyns! It's good to know I am not alone in this thing.....I wonder how much of our weight problems at this stage in life can be attributed to medications. I have hypertension and take 3 different types of medication; 2 of them list weight gain as possible side effects. I...

Thanks Jules for your response to my post. I see you feel the same way I do about exercise. :wink: ..truth be told I bet alot of people do. I admire your tenacity, tho. Do you go to any kind of diet group/club like Weight Watchers etc? I sometimes feel that I would do better if I were held accountab...

Anxious to get started!

Hello everyone~ I just heard about the No S Diet and discovered this forum today. After reading a few (dozen!) postings I can see that it has really helped alot of people and is a great way to increase motivation. I wonder if there are any others like me out there....I'm 55, 70-80 pounds overweight,...
