Just Starting Out

Post by nancys » Wed Mar 30, 2016 2:14 pm

Hi everyone!

After losing 55 lbs on an all shake meal replacement diet, the weight has started to creep on again. I can lose weight easily, it is keeping it off that gives me a problem. After lurking here for a month, I am ready to jump in and give No S a serious try. Thank you in advance for your support!

Welcome and happy that you are here! No S is a great way to maintain or lose weight in a very manageable way.

Welcome, nancys! :-) I'm new, too. Really feeling good about it so far.
I'm not targeting a goal weight or size, since that's counterproductive. I just want to eat sanely and look slender always! 4 weeks of very consistent No-S led to no weight loss. Not sure what to do now.

It's by far the best way of eating I've come across!! I feel like it's teaching me how to eat like I ate when I was a kid again (: I'm a newbie too. I've gained & lost the same weight repeatedly for years so I'm hoping this will be the key to keeping off without having to give up ANYTHING (:

Welcome! Sometimes people who have done rather strict regimes gain a little at first, but give it time. This is definitely preferable to living with shakes permanently, at least to me. I like to chew!

Thanks everyone! First day was pretty good but I had an early lunch then dinner was a little late so I was starved by that time. I hope to do a better job and spacing out my meals tomorrow.

Welcome! I've been tempted to try a shake plan many times for the simplicity, so I can see the appeal. NoS really is easy to follow though, and I think when you get used to it you'll like it. It feels like something I could truly do for life, and I feel like I finally have tools to help me learn moderation (which is still a work in progress, LOL!) Anyway, congrats on coming out of lurkdom, and I hope you have a great first month!

I'm recommitting myself after ending a 2 1/2 year relationship. Nothing is as motivating to losing weight as being back on the market.
