No weight loss yet
Update on the No S Diet. So far, after trying the No S Diet for a month, I haven't lost any weight at all. However, as I'm eating less than I had been previously, that must mean that until I took control of what I was eating, I must have been putting weight on.

The thing is, I'm not very much overweight, so I only have a few pounds to lose, but those are always the hardest to shift. I haven't actually worked out what my ideal weight should be these day. The weight I have in my head as "ideal" is too low now I'm in my early 60s and nowhere near as active as I used to be.

*plays with spreadsheet for a few moments*

After doing a few calculations, if I can lose 10lbs, that would put my BMI at 25.1 which is the top end of normal. I'd be happy with that. My first target is to lose 4lbs, so need to tighten the diet a little more to see if I can do that.

Good wishes. It's so frustrating that it's the small amounts that are so hard to loose, sometimes.

I've noticed that when people are praised for losing masses of weight, they usually still end up heavier than me. But I used to be 2 stones lighter than I am now and as I get older, my feet and hips would be grateful for having to carry a bit less weight. There's no way I'll ever be as slim as I was in my teens and 20s, but losing 10-12lbs would help a lot.

Good luck with the weight loss. When you're only a little above your ideal weight, it's always harder to lose those few pounds.
