Welcome! If No S is too "diety," we're pretty much doomed!
No S really helped me, but it didn't happen automatically. I still binged, or pretty close to it, on weekends for a long time, but I looked for improvement, rather than abstinence. My N days were such an improvement enough of the time that eventually, the tide turned.
Stopping bingeing and losing weight can often be two different endeavors. It can really complicate things to expect weight loss right away or steadily. It's usually better to stabilize eating and then work on reducing food later, and I don't mean after two or three weeks. It helps to have a stable pattern you know you can return to if things get too difficult when you cut back. Otherwise the binge-and-restrict cycle can easily get recreated.
Feel free to visit me on my thread and ask for more particulars. (I've been here for over 8 years, so you probably don't want to go and read the whole saga.) _________________ Count plates, not calories. Three a day. 8 years & counting
