I lost 9.4lbs but my snacking is out of control AGAIN and I know that I need to make No-S my lifestyle, not some diet. Quite frankly, I'm tired of counting points and obsessing about food.

Re: downplaying success on this plan

I totally relate to your post GAgirl. I have the same back and forth issues with No-S and WW. I went back to WW honestly because I wanted to snack. That's been the biggest challenge for me on No-S. I am an emotional eater and I usually snack when my husband goes to bed. Sad but true. I remember not ...

Good luck Arjuna....My husband is from England and I imagine if we lived there, avoiding the pubs as part of the socializing culture would be a challenge. When we visit, it's like we're in college again we wind up doing a pub crawl (unfortunately, I don't recover as fast as I did in college).
