Kinda peeved with myself that I didn't keep going when I started several weeks ago ... I'm back at my starting weight. That's okay -- I don't EVER intend to see those numbers on my scale again!

I tried going back to counting calories -- let's face it, that's not sustainable over time (or, for me, longer than about three days!) No S makes more sense than anything else I've seen. What's that saying? "Begin as you intend to proceed."

That's my plan!

Other diet plans and counting calories always will look tempting at times. Goodness knows I've been tempted by enough of them and seduced by the promise of faster weight loss Smile Embarassed It never seems to work out that way though, does it?

But doing No S is a great way to work on losing your 'Diet Head'. And you're by no means the only person who's got off to a false start on this way of eating. I'm another returner, determined this time to keep going no matter what!

Good luck with your new start - not that you need luck, just three yummy meals a day! Smile

Giving No S another (hopefully more persistent!) try, after trying the "Delay, Don't Deny" route for over a year, with no success whatsoever. I did learn that I can fast up to 22 hours a day and not die. I also learned that, when my window opens, I binge-eat like the old days before I fixed my disordered eating. Stupid.

So three meals a day it is, saving sweets (which I've been eating every day in my "window") for the weekend. I truly believe in the sanity to be found in No S. I hope it will result in sustainable weight loss as well.

Cheers!

Welcome back Cynthya! I had also been doing (or trying to do) IF/OMAD for some time and found my eating really spiraled out of control. Looking forward to the sanity and stability of No S this year!!

Welcome back Cynthia! Enjoy the gentle boundaries of NoS and saving of desserts for S Days.

You've been a member a long time! Are you dealing with needing to lose weight or are you just looking for some nice structure?
