Progress report #10

May 14, 2014

So I sort of binged last night, for the first time since I began Nutrisystem on March 5. It didn’t get completely out of control, but I did find myself going back again and again to the chip bag and the brownie pan. I have occasionally had a cheat meal since I began, but this […]

Progress report #9

May 8, 2014

(Note: I’m reporting one day late again this week because I was out of town again.) I wasn’t sure what to expect this morning. I stayed very close to plan while I was gone, but after losing 4.4 pounds last week, I half expected a plateau or even a small gain this week. However, I’m […]

Progress report #8

May 1, 2014

(Note: I’m reporting one day late this week because I was out of town without a scale or measuring tape.) Woohoo!!! A huge loss this week of 4.4 pounds! And what makes it even sweeter is the fact that I was on the road for more than half the week and still was able to […]

Progress report #7

April 23, 2014

Very happy to report a 2-1/2-pound loss this week! Helps to make up for last week’s small gain. I also had a really nice non-scale victory yesterday: At work, someone I hadn’t worked with since before I started Nutrisystem said, “Looks like you’ve lost weight,” as soon as I walked into the office. She swears […]

Progress report #6

April 16, 2014

Had a small gain this week, which is disappointing but not the end of the world. I did have two cheat meals this week, one of them last night, and that may be the reason for the regression. We were at a restaurant, and although I tried to order the most NS-friendly salad I could, […]

Progress report #5

April 9, 2014

Still going strong! Another 1.4 pounds down this week. Usually by this point in a diet (5 weeks) I’m starting to struggle, and then by week 8 I’ve given up altogether. That’s not happening this time. Rather, I feel like I’ve hit a groove. This “diet,” or rather new way of life, is easier to […]

Progress report #4

April 2, 2014

Wow. I was not expecting a loss this week. I cheated pretty badly over the weekend while visiting my sister. I had pizza at the mall, candy at the movie theater, sugary cereal in the morning, and more candy on the drive home. I hadn’t completely stuffed myself—I kept portions reasonable—but still, I thought my […]

Progress report #3

March 27, 2014

This week’s weigh-in yesterday was not as inspiring as the first couple of weeks, just 0.2 pounds, but that’s okay. I’ve read on the Nutrisystem discussion boards that others had problems in the third week as well–for whatever reason, many people don’t lose much that week. So I expected it and rolled with it. Again, […]

Progress report #2

March 19, 2014

I’m excited to report that I’m down exactly 3 pounds from last week, so I’ve lost 6 pounds in my first 2 weeks on Nutrisystem! I am struggling with the lunches. I just don’t like them. The lunch bars are great, but any of the ones in a cup aren’t working for me. I’m not […]

Progress report #1 – Nutrisystem Fast 5 results

March 12, 2014

I was disappointed, crushed almost, this morning when I discovered that Fast 5 was only Fast 3 for me. I was really sure it was going to be at least 5. I’m not giving up, of course! And I did weigh myself on my clinic’s scale today (I work in the hospital it’s attached to) […]
