I'm currently in my last semester of college in Athens, GA (Home of the Dawgs!) I recently got married to the love of my life, and we are in the process of buying our first house! We share our home with a playful black kitty named Phineas (Phin).
Things I love: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Princess Bride, books of all kinds, the mountains and the beach, beluga whales, and making people smile. :-)

Hey, you're back!
This from a recent post on the nosdiet site: Thu Mar 13, 2014 7:44 am Post subject: Tired of quick fixes
Hi, I lost 30 lbs a few years ago with No S going from 183 to 153. Then I fell into the old trap of looking for a quick fix to get rid of the rest of my weight (another 25-30 lbs). Low- carb, primal, intermittent fasting.
So now I'm 48 and still 153! Just enough already! I am starting back today on vanilla No S. I know it works. If I had stayed with it instead of looking for a quick fix, I would be at my correct weight by now!

Welcome to the No S Diet team. The "diet" wasn't meant for emotional eaters, but it has been a godsend for me, a former binger. Sticking to eating three meals a day wipes out the choice to eat for any other reason. It coincided with my accepting that I wasn't always going to be able to feel better in some moments; I just had to tolerate the problem of the moment, as most of them were ongoing, and get through the time until the next meal. And there was always coffee, if necessary!
Honestly, it took a long time for the emotional eating on weekends to die down, but the improvement was so great that I did not despair. Now, after over three years, I sometimes eat even less often on weekends-- by choice! My appetite is SO changed.
Please give this lifestyle a real chance. It really is not a diet. You'll be a different person in a year.

I see you are from Athena, GA. My son lived near Atlanta for 2 years, but recently took a job in Baltimore. I loved visiting him in GA, but am glad he's closer to home now :) I'm in upstate NY.
