My question is Do you find "herbalife"shakes(shape works) good for a healthy Nutrisystem diet? Looking forward for any response. Another quick question... I have had a rough couple of weeks. My uncle had a heart attack on Feb 9th. Ended up in a coma. Since he went to long without O2 He had lost all brain function and we took him off life support on Feb 13th.

He had no wife and kids.

I had to step up and make the decisions and also plan his funeral..

I've been off plan during this whole time. I haven't lost any weight, but I haven't gained anything either. Should I stay off plan for a couple more days? Or should I start back immediately? Honestly, right now tho. I don't feel like going grocery shopping to get my additions...

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

Toder, please accept my condolences for your loss..

I vote for getting back on plan asap. You want to make sure that you are among the living for as long as possible and you don't want to waste another day not doing something that will most likely extend your life...

Right now, I guess it's just exhaustion setting in. I've held back from old habits and didn't let myself overindulge on food and drink. I do feel proud of that. I also feel proud in the fact the last time I wore the clothes I wore were falling off of me this time. Also had a NSV that I was able to fit in some jeans I had "grown" out of..

I don't know, maybe I feel guilty that these thoughts have been on my mind and not totally focused on him...

My condolences to you and your family Toder. These can be dificult times indeed..

My wifes sister past away about week 3 into my Nutrisystem voyage. It was hard to stay on plan with all the chaos going on for a couple weeks, but somehow I was able to stick with it..

I think you should do whatever makes you feel better. If it's off plan...no big deal, you know you will get back on it. If it's to get back on immediately, then do it and do it with passion..

Down the road when you look back on this, it will only be a little blimp on your ticker...

Get back on plan asap, but only you can decide when is soon enough. From personal experience, though, it's easier to get back on track once you get back into your normal daily routine with work and such...

I am so sorry for your loss Toder. Try not to feel guilty, you are doing what you need to do to live your life to the fullest and it makes perfect sense that it would be on your mind a lot right now...

I surely do not want to diminish this difficult time in your life, but I would remind you (and myself) that "exceptions" to eating correctly were what got me (and maybe you) into trouble in the first place. I can name a thousand times I said to myself, "This is just too much stress and too much trouble to eat like I should. I deserve an extra bite of this or that.".

Pat yourself on the back for being there to make the decisions that needed to be made and for helping the rest of your family get through this. And, by the way it is the people around you now, who need your thoughts and attention...

Toder,.

It sounds like you really care about your family. Just make sure that you care for the caregiver, which is yourself. Your grief will not go away overnight so at least be mindful of the success you've had already and get back on plan as soon as you are able. 38 pounds won't come back if you don't let it..

Be strong........

ToberI am so sorry for your loss. I do understand as I lost my Father last Aug. and gained 15 pounds. My heart felt condolences to you on your loss, and be proud of yourself for the stength you have had in dealing with it all, including your eating and weight control. I know how exhaulsted you must be all the way around. It all takes time and you have friends here.

It will make you feel better and give you something else to focus on. Take care, Kristina..

Toder, so sorry about your loss and the difficult decisions that you had to make. Regarding what to do about the plan, it seems to me you answered your own question in your very last sentence. If you don't feel like shopping for your additions right now after what you have been dealing with, then don't. When the time is right, and you will know when the time is right to get back on the horse (plan) then you do it. But for now, take care of yourself and get yourself healed after what you have gone thru. The plan will be there.

When you come back...
