For the first three months of this seven month lifestyle change, I was on Nutrisystem. It was beneficial in getting me started in the right way of eating - portion size, combinations of food, etc. Having started that program in October 08, I went back to their website yesterday and read the blogs of some of the people I'd known who'd started the same time as I did and who were still using that system. Well, I nearly fell over to see that two of the three have lost 50 lbs (I've only lost 33), and the third person is down 90!!!! I kept asking myself if I should return since I've been at this lull period. However, I know better than to do this comparison thing and to instead run my own race. Those folks will have to get off the specially formulated food at some point and join the real world someday - as I have. And in doing so, it's an entirely different ballgame. If I'd stayed on that food program, I would have become very dependent and thought that I couldn't succeed without it. So much for visiting my old stomping ground. I don't think it's a productive thing to do. So I won't anymore.
