End 1st Week/Beginning 2nd Week of Nutrisystem
Here I am sitting here reflecting at the end of my first week of Nutrisystem. I don't think I've ever been on a "diet" program where I lost 14.2 pounds in the first week. I had heard of other people losing that kind of weight in the first week... Read more
Decided I Need Help
Well, I'm back again. I've decided I really need help and am not disciplined enough to do this on my own, so I joined Nutrisystem on Thursday, April 19. I went to the doctor, got some not-so-good news and decided I have REALL... Read more
Yeah, here I am, back again! I guess as long as I keep trying, that's all that matters. I've actually been refocused since 1/3/12, but this is my first chance to get back on SP. I've been off all added sugars since the 3rd,... Read more
...didn't quite work out the way I wanted it to; but, you know, what? It's not gonna stop me! I am determined to get this weight off of me and to get myself healthy. This is for me, but in doing it for me, I'll also be doing it for my family.... Read more
These past few disastrous months!
Well, these past two months or so have been absolutely disastrous for me. I totally lost focus, lost sight of the "end game," and gained back 10 of the pounds I lost. This weekend I decided -- again -- that it's time to get my focus back. I s... Read more
At this point I'm really struggling, trying to keep things going and feeling like things are just not going well. I'm still trying, so I guess that's a good thing. I know the only way to fail is to just quit trying so at least I'm not fitting ... Read more

This was one of those weeks where it's been kind of up and down. As I posted earlier, my weight, although I knew I was eating correctly, started going the wrong direction. I was getting a little discouraged, but some great people on this board... Read more
Bummed a little
I tried to go on the Atkins diet, but I have a real problem with the restrictive nature of the program. It's too restrictive FOR ME! I know others who have gone on it and lost a lot of weight. I was losing okay on it, but then switched back t... Read more
Thanks everyone for the support!
This would be so much more difficult without all the wonderful support from everyone on this site! Thank you so much!... Read more
Wow! One goal met!
Since beginning my journey into a healthy new me about four weeks ago (only been on SP for about two weeks), I have now hit 5% of my total body weight gone! I'm so excited. It's been kind of up and down staying with healthy eating, but I think... Read more
Really bad day yesterday!
Yesterday was really a tough day. I was running on 3 hours sleep in 48-hour period trying to get work out because of deadlines and I just made lousy choices. So frustrated with myself because I felt I was so determined to do what I needed to d... Read more
