First question I got is What is the difference between South Beach Diet,Atkins diet, Weight watchers, and Nutrisystem? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question... I'm back on the program as of 6/1. I had done so well before and lost 60 lbs. by mid-March (started 12/1/08). Those first few months that were so successful I had an occasional planned free day, but I started getting off track when the planned free days turned into unplanned free days, which turned into weekends, which turned into weeks at a time..

As of this Monday I had regained 25 lbs, but I'm down 10 lbs. as of this morning..

I spent the last month on a medicine-psychiatry unit where I work which mostly consisted of detoxing alcoholics. I think what those experiences taught me is that I have to treat overeating as an addiction that may never go away but can be managed by daily actions, knowing that is is there, and making efforts to avoid that first binge. I also know that I should spend more time on these forums as they are like daily AA meetings...

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could help you..

Wlcome back..... I know what you mean about an addiction to eating. I am often ticked off that I can eat what a naturally skinny guy eats, I gain weight and the other guy stays skinny.... It don't seem fair, but, I guess life ain't fair. I have learned I MUST control my eating or I will always be fat and probably die early. Hang in there and stay in these boards, they have really helped me...

Welcome back! Now you know why we were beating the crap out of you over those "planned" 5000 kcal binges. We have all been there and have had those internal rationalizations. First spoonful of a pint of Ben and Jerry's is not very different than the first sip from a bottle of whiskey! Glad that you are back. Now get on it loser!!..

Hey Doc, welcome back. Your medical insight was missed...

Welcome back Doc... just wondering, during your unlanned weeks did you continue to log on your Bodybugg web site? I too have been sorta maintaining. However, I cant say I would have been "maintaining" unless I continued to log the food and wear the BB. it served as a daily reminder that hey you're slippin again and looking at the deficit numbers everyday reminds you that it's been a long hard road filled with sweat and tears and it sure as hell stopped me from getting out of hand. it's great to see you back, freind..

I'm looking into getting the BB permanently secured onto my arm. Would you be able to tell me who I can see about having this done?..

Hey Disco - I am an alcoholic and know exactly what you are talking about. I have been able to stay sober for 12 years by applying the principles of AA. Now I must confront my addition to food. I think one day at a time applies to eating as well. My problem has been that I have justified my eating by saying well, I don't drink, smoke or do drugs so I reward myself with food. That must change!.

Good luck..

Hey Disco, That is the way to Man-up! All I can say is continue down that path with extreme prejudice!..

Comment #9

OK, Doc you can do it..

You are young and if you can get a handle on this thing now, you won't have to fight the war when you are older like so many of the rest of us. Battles, yes. Unfortunately they are inevitable for some of us..

Stay with it and keep us posted on your progress...

Glad you are back. Charts are fun until they show us going back up in weight. I'm working to get mine going the other direction, too...

Comment #11

I quit Nutrisystem around the same time you did and I have gained back about 8 of the 20 lbs I lost. I only quit because it was getting too expensive but right now I'd be happy to pay to get the weight back off...

So true...we are all fighting demons every day in here. Some are more extreme than others..

The demons win, when we stop fighting them. As long as we stay focused and never give up the fight, we win!!..
