I feel like I should add - Reinhard - you are a genious and we owe a lot to you for making noS public and giving as a place to share our worries and successes. It is the logic of noS that attracted me to it - it is your and everyone else's support that keeps me going!!!

I'm with you Jill - I'm actually slightly concerned I'm developing some sort of discussion boards addition. I keep checking it several times a day, so at least when I can enter those pages with an actual aim of ticking a box, it feels a little more justified :wink:

I think there are two legitimate camps of no-essers: minimal weighers (once a month or so) and scientific weighers. I guess maybe I am a scientific weigher then. I actually enjoy observing how my weight changes during the day. In my peak moments, I have weighted myself before a meal, then weighted ...

You are all amazing!!!

To all of you who are just starting and who have been here for a while, who are doing well and who are struggling, who are losing fast and who take a while to start losing - thank you all for sharing your experiences!

It would be so much more difficult if it wasn't for all of you!!!

On any traditional diet you eat little and feel hungry - which feels expected as "yes of course I am hungry after all I am only eating no carrots and celery". But on noS it feels a bit different.
