Success story

I'd like to report on my experiences with No-S. I found this diet two years ago, and made several abortive attempts to start it. I guess the timing wasn't right, but I simply couldn't stop snacking. A little background: Snacking is my problem. I already take small portions at meals, and sweets aren'...

Ottawa, Ontario. Cold and snowy. Not fun.

At least it's not that cold, only about -14 degrees celsius (with the wind chill). It'll be a lot worse in January...

Not only that, I missed my shovelglove yesterday. I'll be shovelling today (5-10cm of snow!)

Day 5: Success Days 6 & 7: S-days (woo hoo!) Success Got up at my normal N-day time (5am) and experienced a huge energy crash from 8-9am. This would be when I'd normally start snacking, to keep my energy up. Fortunately, none of my co-workers arrived early enough to see me dozing at my desk. :) My w...

I can't remember the last time I was able to touch my toes. No, I really mean it! If I ever was able to, it was before my earliest conscious memories (about age three). That's over thirty years ago! <sigh> I'm getting old. I love it. I think this is the first time I've ever really enjoyed excercise....

Thanks for the welcomes. I've been struck by how polite and friendly people here seem to be. Actually, I think the analogy to programming is an excellent one. Make it as simple as possible, but no simpler. Automate as much as possible. Make the system as hands-off and robust as possible. Integrate a...
