Question I have... Which weightloss program is better, Nutrisystem, nutri system or weight watchers. Thanks? Thanks in advance for any response. Second question.. One year ago today I decided to start Nutrisystem. I had received my big ol' box of Nutrigoodness the day before and told myself I'd start on May 1st.

I stepped on the scales and weighed in at 342 pounds. Which at the time I didn't think was so bad since I weighed in at 357 pounds on January 1, 2008 (I had been trying to eat right since the first of the year with minimum success). I was overwhelmed at the amount of weight I needed to lose and the amount of work it would take, but decided to do it anyway.

The first month was tough on me as I adjusted to new eating habits, but I stayed 100% the entire month and was excited with my results. It motivated me to do another month, and another month, and it just got easier and easier and I felt better and better. Before I knew it, an entire year has now gone by and here I am writing this post. I now weigh 208 pounds, which means I lost 134 pounds in one year on Nutrisystem. I still have 13 more pounds until I reach goal, and I will reach my goal.

Some changes over the past year:.

Weight: Was 342, Now 208.

Waist: Was 46", Now 32".

Neck: Was 23", Now 18".

Blood Pressure: Was 132/89 (with meds), Now 125/72 (no longer on meds).

Cholesterol: Was 280, Now 161.

The first 11 months the only exercise I did was walk 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week. My results may not be typical, but Nutrisystem worked for me...

Congrats on your success - I think many of us get sidetrack when we look ahead to where we want to be - your way of I will do try this and see what happens and then sticking to it and feeling better and better as it got easier and easier and now you lost all that weight.

That is a great report! Inspiring to all us losers. I especially like this:.

"I will reach my goal. However, my goal is not a finish line".

Amen! I'm with you on that..

I'm only 3 months away from my 2 year anniversary. I can't believe it's almost been 2 years. I still feel like somewhat of a newbie..

I'll update the numbers at the actual 2 year mark, but I've reached my goal, and so far so good with maintaining that goal...

Comment #14

I hope to slim down to be just like you!!!..

Comment #15

Way to go, Jonah!! Successfully maintaining is the BIG YaHOO!! Looking forward to your biannual update!.

Congrats!! I'm just starting my third week and I have a question for you or anyone else that wants to share since you have been doing this for a couple years. Have you been doing the Men's program everyday for 2 years straight or have you had a couple days where you didn't follow the plan? For example, I love my steak (like most men) and my wife and I have scheduled a Sat. "surf and turf" dinner that falls after the first 28 days of our program. Did you do things like this to help keep you motivated and sane? As of now, I haven't had any problems following the plan but I'm trying to get some insight on whether or not the more "experienced" ever break away from the program for a meal. When you maintain, do you eat what the plans says but maybe increase a serving of veggies from 1/2 cup to a full cup or do you always eat the recommended amounts?.

I know that doing this program is a life-style change and I'm fine with that but I want to make sure I do it the right way so I don't give up because I'm tired of eating the same stuff..

Does any of this make sense? I'm sure I'm just rambling but I'm curious if you have stayed on the plan for 2 straight years without allowing for any "special" meals to break up the schedule..

If anyone has any thoughts, I would love to hear them. My wife and I are truly trying to make this work and we don't want to start off on the wrong foot..

Thanks everyone for your time and attention in advance.....

YOU have to be a master of food and not let it be the master of you..

Learn to enjoy the taste of food and not the volume of food..

If you go out, enjoy a HUGE salad first (right Poly?), then portion out you main course. Stay away from the french fries, get veggies instead..

If you reduce your steak portion to a normal portion, then you can enjoy the steak the next night as well....

Just some ideas...
