I started the No S diet in May 2010 and I lost 35 pounds to date (August 2011). What I gained though is so much more. For the first time in my life I feel normal. When I have a stressful day, I don't immediately turn to my sweet and salty friends.
This is the only diet I've ever been on that I was able to maintain for any length of time. For the first time if I have a red day, I am back on the program the next day, no problem (and I don't succumb to the "well, since I am cheated and I am going to get back on track tomorrow, I can keep binging" excuse.) Also, I've always been embarassed to be the fat girl on a diet with special food, so it's great to not have any restrictions if I don't have control over my food selection (e.g. at a work event or family function).
I still need to lose (lots) more weight to be in the "normal" range for my height (per BMI), but I feel confident that I'll get there at a slow and easy pace.
I plan to tweek my S days, make exercise a regular part of my lifestyle and focus on keeping my alcohol consumption to not more than 5-7 drinks a week.
Thank you so much, Reinhard for coming up with this plan and putting it out there!

Great job! The best thing about No S is that it is unobtrusive and sustainable. You illustrate this well.

Dear KitKat,

I'm so glad you're seeing less of your "sweet and salty friends." Smile

(great phrase)

Your numbers are great, but even more valuable (and encouraging for future numbers) is your newfound sense of normalcy and that this is something maintainable.

Congratulations, thank you for sharing, and looking forward to future updates!

Reinhard

yay! I love how eating slightly more carefully ends up being a gift in it's own right. Congrats on your progress too!
