I rarely weight myself but yesterday I did and I realised that in the past 2 years I have steadily lost 20 pounds. This means that my BMI has dropped from 34.5 (ish) to 30.8; I have gone from well into the 'obese' section to just above 'overweight'.

Over the past year I have mainly stuck to NoS. Other than the weekend I tend to think of S events rather than S days; just because I am going out for a special meal in the evening does not mean I get to eat what I want all day. My one non-vanilla item is that if I am hungry before bed I can have a small amount to eat for supper (I live in Yorkshire, supper is a thing there). Other than that I am pretty happy with vanilla NoS.

Very occasionally I will decide on the spur of the moment that an event is NoS but usually it is decided well ahead of time.

CONGRATULATIONS!

That's a real good example of 'slow and steady wins the race' - many, many congratulations on building your consistency of habit!

And that's what I love about no-s, success can sneak up on you without you even paying that much attention. Wink Our habits really do make us who were are . . . And not just dietary habits either. Congratulations on your quiet success.

Oh, and I love that you have "supper". It brings back memories of my aunt who used the term. Most folks around here don't really know what it is.

Congratulations! Slow and steady successes like this make me very happy.

Nice also to see how well No-S can be adapted for "localization!"

Best,

Reinhard

Very Happy Thank you for sharing.

I am starting to see how slow and steady wins the race. I found NoS in September, and started with one NoS guideline at a time. Just this month I began following all 3 guidelines and so far so good. I really feel as if I can make this a lifestyle and your story helps with that thought!

Welcome here, too! I've told people your approach can work, though it wasn't what I did. I can imagine for some people, it would be much more humane, as long as they didn't give up early. Thank you for letting us know.
