Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could assist you..
Welcome! I'm 5 weeks in and it's been a breeze so far....as everyone will tell you...just stick to the plan, and it will work. I'm a believer now...after being a skeptic at first!.
Start now- don't wait on the food to arrive. I lost about 4 pounds just waiting on the food to arrive..
I started at 281 also- and am down 28 pounds so far. Once you start to notice chagnes....that's all the motivation you will need!!.
Ask questions and Good Luck!..
I'm looking forward to taking control of my weight. Sean, I plan on working the Nutrisystem system after all my system hasn't worked well for me, thanks for the advise on calling a couselor when I feel like cheating. Wheeljo, no joke 28 lbs in 5 weeks? Man I've been dreaming of getting to 253 lbs for years. I got a feeling your going to be a big encouragement for me..
Welcome Kell, your story sounds familiar to mine in a lot of ways. You're going to be amazed at what you're able to do with this program and the support of this site, and at how effortless it all really is. I can't encourage you enough to make full use of this site, kind of "you get out what you put in". I can see a direct correlation between my participation here and success on the program. Definitely read back in the history of the Men's Room postings, there is probably anything anybody who's ever tried to lose weight could hope to know buried in there..
Good luck, be seeing you around...
Welcome to nutrisystem Kell, wishing you success with your weight loss goal!.
Nutrisystem at 100% equals success! Eating per the plan, recording your food, drinking your water, posting your weigh-ins and exercising! Expect to lose weight if you follow the plan 100% daily!.
Keep stringing together 100% days and good things always happen!.
Welcome Kell, If you are a night binger you need to do two things. 1) get rid of the junk food (you need to do this anyway) 2) Apolyton will tell you to eat big salads at night. this will keep you from gettin up and binging!.
We are here to help, but read the "Men's Rules to posting." we don't take whining too well around here and although we do encourage, we will not stroke you like the women stroke each other. You have a lofty goal time wise, but you can get close to you goal by your birthday!..
Best of luck Kell, I ditto everything they have said, and they are not kidding about following the plan 100%, I've dropped 28 in 4 weeks, but during week 3 I only lost 3 pounds, because I decided to try to accelerate things by not eating my afternoon Nutrisystem snack. I figured since I wasn't that hungry and could skip it between lunch and dinner, that I would eat that many less calories and be fine, but my body needed those extra calories and good carbs to use to metabloize the fat. I may not have cheate dand gone to McDonalds, but I cheated myself out of a better weight loss week, because I didn't follow the plan 100%, that is a big key..
I wish you the best of success, and we are all here for support if you need us. You will do great things, the first step was ordering the food, and once you start and begin to lose you will see it's the best decision you ever made for your health...
Hi Kell! Your story is virtually word-for-word the same as mine. You've made the right choice, man! This has been literally a life-changing experience for me, as it has been for MANY others! All you wrote about your plans are right-on. NS+Exercise= everything you're hoping for, and more. Welcome to your New Life!!.
Here's the best advice I can give you..
Click on quick links on the top right of the page. Choose edit options and under thread display options unclick the box next to "show signatures"..
That way you won't have to look at those embarrasing glitter sigs that some of the guys like Hugebear and Poly have right now...
I gotta tell you guys, I am impressed with all of you as well as others I've seen on this site with all the weight loss. I have to admit even as I signed up I had my doubts as to how effective this program would be. I saw the commercials with the before and after pictures and looked at the testimonials on the site and thought yeah yeah, those folks are extreme cases but don't represent the majority of those using Nutrisystem. But man, I see success stories all over this website and I am pumped. I just checked and my package is scheduled to arrive on Monday March 1st and I can't wait...
Welcome and good luck. Just stick with it and this plan is a breeze. If you get discouraged come to the boards. You couldn't pay for support like you get here!..
Good luck kell - success is easy as mentioned above - you are changing your way of life here, it's not a diet - so get going now! it does work. let your friends and family know so they can support you too - not put you in situations where you may cheat...
If you follow the plan it can not fail. The first thing I had to convince myself of is even a small cheat is a cheat. After I got my head in the game the pounds starting dropping fast. One other great thing is the plan is not hard or complicated to follow at all. It has made a believer out of me in just one month...
Welcome aboard and follow the plan. Like others have said come here when you feel like cheating, after calling a counselor and get your butt kicked back on plan...
Welcome Kell123, reading other people's success stories in these boards has helped me, because we all have similar tales. Like you, I am turning 50 this year, and don't want to be 50 pounds overweight on my birthday. This is the start of my third week, have lost another 4 pounds during week 2..
I wish I had found the boards before I started, so good for you for doing that. A word of advice; get your storage area ready for the food to arrive. It takes about 1-1/2 3-shelf cupboards to store all of it...
