You can read about my whole journey here.
I reached my goal within about 5 months of being on the program. I have lost a total of 50 lbs. I do not do any excessive exercise. I just try to get at least 9k steps in each day and sometimes will resort to my hula hoop (unless dancing in the car counts).
Im still on the program and have my foods shipped to me each month. I love that advantage. I go online before the ship date, and choose all the meals I want from the menu. Its like I have my own little chef. I do the "weekends on my own" plan. That's where they only send me enough food to eat five days a week and gives me two days off. I would like to eventually stop Nutrisystem all together but I do not trust myself right now to eat right on my own. Besides Nutrisystem is actually cheaper in the long run. A lot of foods bought at the grocery store go bad before I can get it all eat. And the healthy foods seem to be so expensive. However, I do still have to buy some veggies to eat daily as those are not included in the shipment.
My husband does not mind that I have my own food plan. We spend hardly any money for his foods at the grocery store. He eats lots of salads, nuts and other healthy choices while also cooking up nutritious suppers for himself. Sometimes I will swap out my Nutrisystem dinner if he cooks something that's fits along with my diet.
I see where people have lost over 100 lbs. on Nutrisystem. I admire those people for their dedication and hard work. The more weight you need to loose, the easier it is to loose. I needed to loose only 30 lbs., I did it in seven months. Someone who needs to loose more can do it in two to four months. Its weird. Now that im at 118 lbs., I can't seem to loose any more. My weight is staying between 118 and 120. That's ok with me. This Summer I can get back to more outside exercise and get out of hibernation.
I will probably stay on Nutrisystem until I actually can't stand it anymore or can no longer afford it, but right now I still like all the foods and convenience. My yearly physical was great. All my tubes and pipes are working like they should and I feel good all the time. I look forward to a full summer with a slimmer body. My plan now is to firm and tone up.
