No Snacks, no sweets, no seconds. Except on Days that start with S. Too simple for you? Simple is why it works. Look here for questions, introductions, support, success stories.

I remember that evening well. I don't recall what chain of events led to my stumbling onto the NoS website. But I do remember the feeling of 'This makes so much sense. This I can do!". I signed up that evening and started immediately. There was no 'I'll start tomorrow' - I began at that moment - 7.53 pm.

I cannot believe it's been nearly 9 years. I've had some slip-ups and some major falls. The person I am now is vastly different from the person I was then in so many ways. Naturally there have been many changes in my life in that time - and it's about to undergo another major change.

But no matter the stage of life, NoS is always simple and consitent. It always fits.

I love this post. It is so true. No matter what is going on in your life you can always stick to the simple 3 plates a day plan.

That was just a few months short of my beginning (after a short-live stint the year before) on Dec. 26, 2009, though I "time" myself from January of 2010. I can't say I'm a different person on other fronts. But I my default eating is a world away from what it was.

Let's hold hands and go dancing and running in a field somewhere! OK, virtual is good, too. :D
