Hard to watch others diet, starve, fail

I've been eating very similarly to the No S guidelines for almost 2 years. Lost 20 lbs, enjoy meals, never stress about food. It's been interesting to find out about No S and really great to see others here enjoying their freedom!

It's so sad to read other lifestyle/dieting forums where people are posting extreme goals and extreme restrictions, admitting in the same posts (or the ones a few days later) that they know they will be ravenous and then "fail". And then start all over again.

I'd love to chime in and say Stop but I know that the message can't be heard till a person is ready to hear it - and the messenger can get killed! :)

Anyone having any success in spreading the No S or similar food gospel of moderation and enjoyment? Probably more through being a real life example rather than an internet poster, if at all.

Yes, when I originally lost significant weight on noS and held it for four years I had some concerts so hoping to be a real life example again. FYI, I took a break of two years for my two pregnancies.
