I'm posting this here for a couple reason. One is because we get a lot of posts from frustrated individuals who aren't losing weight, and second because I know many or most of the people here don't read the daily check-ins.

I started the No-S diet in the middle of June, now almost exactly 5 months later I am down 50 pounds. So it's been my experience that No-S really works if you commit to it.

Reinhard, I think we found our Jared.

Wow, that is a tremendous accomplishment, Spiral!

Wow, Spiral - that's impressive! I take it you're exercising as well Smile

I've been on NoS for 5 months and have lost 20 pounds - that's with little exercise (beyond the incidental, everyday sort of walking to the train station), free-for-all weekends and sometimes having a Maccas quarter-pounder on an N-day Smile
So, for the frustrated, even less dedicated people can lose weight on NoS!

I didn't have much weight-result at first - and a max loss of one pound a week can seem very slow. But it's constant and it really adds up - and even for that first month when I wasn't losing weight, I was brighter and more energetic, could concentrate better, slept better, etc. So to all the frustrated people - don't be! If you don't see one result, you'll see another.

Spiral, congratulations and thanks for posting this. I do check the all the check-ins but it takes me about a week to get through them all -- and this is certainly "general discussion" worthy news.

To my knowledge, there are two other nosdieters who lost 50+ pounds, but I haven't heard anything from them in a while so who knows. Sometimes I wish I'd started out fatter myself so I could be more Jared-like now Smile I think 10 pounds less would land me in the morgue.

You are in undiscovered country, my friend. Keep popping in every now and then to let us know what it's like.

Congratulations, too, silverfish. 20 pounds is not shabby at all. Particularly since they were so painless.

Reinhard

congrats, spiralstares! That's amazing news....

To any doubters: No-S definitely works. I've lost quite a bit of weight as well since I started, also in June.

I'm exercising a bit, but I expect to exercise more as I continue losing the weight. (I bet a dozen people $100 each that I would run the New York City Marathon next year. that was an easy bet for them to take when I was 300 pounds, but the more I lose the less it seems like a sure-thing for them. I begin training in earnest in a few months.) It's been my goal to get a little more exercise and to eat a little better as each week goes on. So, I'm with the group that says you can't do this without some form of exercise. I take that back, you can lose the weight without exercise, but you'll probably be just as unhappy with your physique at the new weight as your were at the old. I go to dadsotr.com, buy a bunch of old time radio shows and urban ranger around NYC.

I also make an effort to really embrace both No-S and S days. I think there can sometimes be a desire by people to not overindulge on an S-day, and in so doing, they forget to indulge at all. There were some people who didn't take Halloween as an S-day, for god's sake! I think the more you celebrate the S-days (and I don't mean gorge, I just mean don't put too many restraints on yourself), the better off you'll be. I think if you're wishy-washy about the S-days, you end up being wishy-washy about the No-S days too.

Wonderful nes Spiralstares.

You are truly inspirational.

I have around 120 lbs to lose myself and just reading your posts helps me to realize that I can do it, too.

Keep up with all of the wonderful improvements and success you are doing.
