Thanks for all of the responses. I love hearing about people still in the 'flush' of the first year, as well as those who have been NoSing for years.

Janie: 'playing Jenga with my plate'---priceless! :lol: I have not been NoSing long enough to get to my goal weight. HOWEVER, as part of the reasonableness of NoS, I have set my goal weight at a reasonable level--140 lbs. In the past, I have set it at 118 (why is that the ideal number in my mind? I ...

How long have y'all been on the boards?

NoS is going great. I have been reading all of the past posts (wheww!!) As I have read names that come and go I have wondered, how long have the active members here been posting on the board? And related, how long have you been NoSing?

Well, I've been on NoS for 5 weeks yesterday, and have lost 5 lbs. I can't believe it! I am post-menopausal, 56 years old, with severe thyroid problems, and a bunch of other stuff that makes it hard for me to lose. And yet, I am losing! I was especially surprised this week because my weekend was a l...

I think your attitude is great! You see what you need to do without blaming the NoS plan.

NoS does seem the most common sense plan out there, and one that we CAN tweak to fit what we need without freaking out.

Keep on keepin' on!

Okay, yesterday was an N day, and I was doing fine. Then I had to drive hubby to Tucson (about an hour drive) right before dinner. I had a small panic attack, but then realized 'I can eat at any place there!' We ended up at In N Out burger place. I had a cheeseburger, shared hubby's fries, and drank...

One of the things I like best about NoS is the framework for eating. When I have less choices to make, my emotional eating is less. I look for other ways of dealing with it. Exercise is the best for me. Get those old endorphins rolling in the brain, and things seem better. I am currently doing 30 mi...

power outage

Oolala, I read about the power outage. Is everything back on now?

Sorry that the Yuma power station caused the problem. (I live in Arizona!)
Operator error, evidently. How can they not have redundant systems to prevent such a thing?

Take care!
