I just joined today. I found out about this diet from a low carb forum - lol! I read the book and it just resonated with me. It seems so logical. Today is day one and wouldn’t you know there’s a birthday in the office today, which means cake. Geez! Hahahaha - day one might be an S day.

Hi! I combine moderate-low-carb w/NoS and I'm happy as a clam this way. My thread:

Hi! I'm a week and a day into No-S. For me, it means "No $#!+". I stay at home with my kids and cook fairly nutritious meals, yet last year's jeans didn't fit me anymore and I couldn't figure out why. Then I googled "weight loss no gimmicks" and came across this. No
Sweets.
Seconds.
Sugar.
This just spoke to me. Upon reflection, I realized that I snack ALL DAY LONG, esp. sweet snacks because that's what the kids like. Today is Halloween and I'm DYING to open a mini Butterfinger which inevitably turns into a mini Skittles and so on and so forth. Good to know there are other beginners out there.

I’ve just come back to this so I’m not a newbie in that I know it works really well for me but I am in terms of having to get back into the habits from a similar permasnacking habit - I have a toddler and a baby and am home too so feel your pain. I find it really hard not to eat the leftovers of my toddler at snack time but alas, it isn’t worth it. So good luck to us eh? 😉

Hi, I just joined. I am anxious to read more posts by everyone. I really need inspiration, because I am feeling like a total failure right now. Need to lose about 60 pounds just to get to a 25 BMI. It really seems impossible, but I am hoping to find some encouragement here.

Welcome Angel1. There is plenty of useful advice in the posts of the long term No Ss. Have you read the book? Reinhard posts and podcasts are very useful.
Tip of the day - start with something you think you can succeed at, no matter how small, to help get rid of that failure feeling.

I suggest you pop into the sticky at the top entitled something like: NoS All Time Top Discussions. In there, you'll see a link to NoS Catch Phrase Glossary which is chock full of helpful insights as fellow NoSers share their best mental strategies for following NoS and overcoming pitfalls.

I also highly recommend you read through the NoS Testimony board. You'll be able to read the stories of dozens of people, who despite their various struggles, enjoy NoS success. Very inspiring!

7 months ago when I started this I decided I would be happy if in a year I had lost a stone and knew it wouldn't come back. I'm 13lbs down and am convinced it won't be back.

Take it one day at a time, you'll get there

Welcome Angel1! Best of luck to you. Halloween was VERY hard for me, as I love candy and (stupidly) bought only candy that I like, and of course we have leftovers. I caved on halloween but I've been going strong this week. I find that, when I get peckish, esp during the afternoon (LIKE RIGHTNOW Shocked ) I try to drink water, because I have heard that sometimes your body being thirsty can be interpreted as it being hungry, so that's where I start. I find this to be the most difficult time of any day.
On a side note - any ladies out there tried the shovelglove yet? Just curious what your experience has been. I've been Urban Range-ing all week since I finally got a decent jogging stroller.

I tried the shovel glove but have not kept up with it. I do walk a lot and run some. I do a couple of road races each year, which motivate me.

I just finished my first year. I lost 17 pounds. It was slow. But very sustainable. I am really busy at certain times of the year, so I need something that can be automatic. Good luck!!

Hi, newbies. I suggest you not think in terms of weight you have to lose, but overeating you have to lose- as enjoyably as possible. There's no knowing how it will be for any one person over the course of six months or a year. You can't really tell too much before then because early success and failure alike can go through different cycles later.

If you have to lose for a health condition, you may have to be more careful sooner about what and how much in on your plate than others. I say that because I think it is a very different category to come when you have a health problem or are on the verge of one. But when you really accept that, there's a lot less resentment. You're getting even more for your sacrifices.

Here's going into our last week before the holiday food onslaughts ahead. Shocked

"Weight loss gimmicks" That is funny.

I love Nut Rolls and a Coke.
