Question I have... How does things like Nutrisystem work? Thanks for any answer. My 2nd question... I'll start the February challenge. I'm firing up an Excel spreadsheet to help keep track..

The guidelines: Weigh in on Sunday, February 1st, 2009. Post your current weight and your goal weight for a weigh-in on Saturday, February 28, 2009. I will post the total results on March 1, 2009..

Since the weigh-in starts tomorrow, I'll do it tomorrow. Of course if you want to start your numbers now, hey, it's not like I can take your internet away...

Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an anything. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could assist you..

Good for you Boloboffin! And a spreadsheet, too. I can barely read the scribbles on my piece of paper from the January challenge, the results of which I will post later today. They are interesting..

With you running the show, I'm in for February. This morning (Sunday the 1st) I weighed 177, which was exactly what I weighed January 1st. The end of February, however, will be different. My goal is 174 for February28th, a negative 3 lbs. I would do more, but February is a short month, plus I failed miserably trying to lose 7 lbs last month..

February 1: 177.

Goal for Feb: 174.

To lose: -3 lbs.

UPDATE: The results of the January 2009 Challenge have been posted on that thread...

February 1: 205.

Goal for Feb: 200.

To lose: -5 lbs.

To lose -5 a month is my average if you look at my ticker. This is more realistic than my -8 goal set for Jan. I was actually figuring that after two months of cheating (since Thanksgiving) my loss would be greater when I got serious in Jan..

Here's my strategy for the Feb (and ultimate goal -50). If I can maintain and even exceed my monthly goal of -5 then I make -50 goal by Memorial Day weekend. Perhaps you guys think I should lose the weight faster, but I have embraced Nutrisystem as a lifestyle and my strategy is slow-but sure..

Hey Damon, the Nutrisystem Flatbread has stopped me from ordering a pizza out. So, nice save!..

Don't do it, you are doing great. I bet you did not complain as much when 4 pounds went on in 14 days. Want to shake that plateau, just drink double the water for a week and push yourself a bit harder on exercise. Also just because you are not losing does not mean you are not shrinking..

God luck, you may not reach goal but you went in the direction toward it and not away from it, that alone is an accomplishment...

I know that luck has nothing to do with it. I had no weight loss this past week, at least I didn't gain any weight. I had difficulty staying focused on the plan. Although I ate my Nutrisystem foods, I went overboard with other food items..

I notice that this is a repeating pattern with me with my weight loss efforts. Regardless which plan I try, I do well for the first month or so, then my ability to stay with things gets lost. Hopefully I'll be able to regroup. Perhaps this week will provide me with a push to stay focused for this coming week...

One thing that I tried that helps me stay on plan is splitting up my meals into 1 hour or 1 1/2 hour increments till dinner time. Seems like I'm eating all day long between 7:30 breakfast and 2:30 afternoon snack and now I don't crave anything extra..

And of course added more water so that I'm up to 16 or 17 glasses a day..

I will have to weigh in on Sunday as I get back to town Sat late and not sure if I can fit in a trip to gym. All depends on what time I roll back in town, heading up to Orlando for a couple of nights so starting to plan accordingly..

I am not in the know enough about the 3.2%, it does sound like that beer from way back in the 70's. That might be an old midwest thing if anyone remembers that...
