Question I have... How long did it take Sara Rue to lose 50lbs on Nutrisystem? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: It's been almost 6 months since my surgery and a year since my accident. I am now able to get back on the program. I have gained almost all of my weight back, so I've decided that enough is enough and I started yesterday. Let's see if I can get the same results as last time..

Wish me luck!..

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 anything. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could give you an answer..

Still having alot of pain which should start to go away as the weight drops. At least that's what the doctors keep saying. Of course they only see the weight issue and assume that that's the entire problem. Part of me hopes that they are right, but another part of me wants them to be wrong so I can tell them to stop being biased about people who are obese..

Anyway, as you said. I know what I need to do. Just do it!..

So I'm guessing since the doctors say the pain is weight related, you must have injured one of your legs maybe?..

I had two discs removed in my low back and three vertebrae fused together due to an auto accident. I also need to have the same thing done to my neck, but I don't want to go into surgery being this big. The doctors are saying the excess weight is delaying my recover which I can understand. What I can't stand is how their perception of me has changed from when I was 175 lbs last March to today. I had to bring in my before and after pictures to remind them of what I accomplished before and that I'm capable of doing it again. Sorry to rant. Just needed to vent...

Damn that doesn't sound fun at all..

If you don't mind me asking, did the weight gain start again from the complications of the accident?..

I8NY - your 1st success was awesome - I have no doubt you can do it again!.

You lost 220lbs in 185 days...and gained it back in a year?.

Welcome back - time to kick ass and show us how it's done again...

Definitely! Not being able to move very much and being in so much pain I ended up turning back to eating for comfort. It also threw me into a major depression which I'm still struggling with today and probably will for quite some time. Exercise was key to my success the first time around and became my outlet for stress and anything else that troubled me. Not being able to do that was completely frustrating and I'm happy that I was able to start physical therapy in February. It can only get better from this point on....I hope...

Welcome back!.

I'm really glad to hear from you. We all know what you're capable of and we're just waiting to see you do it again. If losing the weight will give you relief from the pain then it's well worth the effort. Show those doubting Thomas' what you're really made of!..

I8NY, I am truly sorry to see you back in here. The circumstances suck. And it scares me because we should all be aware that the fat guy is never far under the surface. I can clearly see that in my case..

It takes will and perseverance to achieve what you did before, which means you can do it again. Stay after it and we'll encourage each other...

The wagon has been waiting here for you. It is not about how hard you fall off, just about getting back on it! Congrats on making a good decision to come back. Good luck!..

What a journey! Reminds me of my issues with alcohol. Not the same, but a similar addiction. The fall off the wagon for me was dramatic in how quickly I lost all control and passed my prior low point. The good news is that permanent change is not only possible, it.


Happen. For you as it has for me. Been 12 years and counting this time for me. You can do it!.

I8NY, As a 'major accident survivor' myself, I highly recommend you talk to someone, whether one on one or a support group, or whatever. It takes a mental toll that you really don't need to try to handle on your own. I have.


Doubt you'll (re)lose the weight. I'd wish you luck, but I don't think you'll need it, you are a Go Getter Guy so I'll just sit back and watch in amazement as you drop the pounds...

Thanks to everyone for your words of encouragement and support! I feel like the switch has been turned back on and I'm ready for the challenge. My physical therapist said that I looked like a man on a mission this morning to which I relplied, "Damn right I am!".

Mobay, great to hear from you my friend. I very glad that you are still active on the boards and I see that you're doing great keeping the weight off. I'll need your advice about maintanence once I reach goal again..

Loopy Squirrel, Thanks for your advice. I've been referred to a therepist at the hospital where I had my surgery who specializes in helping people after life changing traumatic events and those who will have to deal with a lifetime of pain management. I'm looking forward to putting all of this behind me so I can focus on the future..

Again, I thank you all!..
