My 1st question is: What is a really fast, easy Nutrisystem diet? Thanks for any answer. Another question... After one week on NS, I lost 7 pounds. I'm quite pleased with the results that I've had so far. I'm not sure if I can expect to lose 7 pounds every week. It would be great if I could lose the remaining weight in three or four months.

I could be wrong but I'm wondering if my weight loss could slow down a little..

As they say, "Slow and steady wins the race."..

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

It will slow down after the first or second week. Nothing unusual about that. Eventually, you will settle into a pattern of averaging 2-3 lbs per week. Note, this means that you will have a week or two where you lose nothing followed by a week where you lose 4 or 5 lbs. That is why it is important to assess other things such as your currrent measurements, body fat percentage, the fit of your clothes, etc. And as much as it may pain some, before photos followed by periodic updates can be extremely helpful, especially when you hit those moments when the scale seems to stagnate. Remember, the actual weight measurement is just a small indicator of the improvements you will be making...

The weight loss will normally slow down. During the first week or two your body is getting rid of some of the water it has stored, especially if you are drinking all your water each day..

As you said, slow and steady win the race. You didn't gain all the weight over night and it won't disappear over night..

One thing about NS, it is more about the journey than the actual weight loss..

Focus on changing your eating habits by using the choice of food and portion control. These are the lessons that you need to learn to make it a real "life change"..

If you don't make these changes, once you stop using Nutrisystem food, you will gain all the weight back (and normally some more)..

The best time to get ready for maintenance is while you are using the Nutrisystem food..

Congrats!.

Your weight loss will slow, but this is to be expected. Remember, you are adopting a lifestyle change and not dieting so develop those good habits now and the scale, tape measure and clothing fit will all do what you want them to do soon enough...

NICE JOB!!! You're on your way to less of you..

I'm only on week 3 but I can agree with what others have said. 1st week I lost 8 lbs. Week #2 was only three. Try not to think of it as "only" x-lbs. Like it was stated, it's more than just the weight. Remember, your sodium intake is probably cut way down, you are eating more veggies and taking in more water than you would have if not on NS.

Best of Luck...

Thanks all!.

I've been looking at everyone's W8BOOK tickers, and it does seem that 2 - 3 pounds per week is the average. Although some have slipped and gained a pound or two, but that's ok; that's part of the process. I expect to have days/weeks that I'll be able to stay with the program. Then I'll have days where I'll slip up. But they say that the difference between a winner and a loser is that the winner is able to get up one more time than the loser. That's all that matters..

I'll get there eventually. It took 30 years for me to get this large. It's gonna take time to lose it, presumable a bit less than 30 years..

Thanks again...

The initial loss will be higher. After a few weeks it slows down some. I lost about 25 lbs the first month but after that it slowed to about 12-14 lbs per month give or take a few lbs. The important thing is to keep the graph going down. You will also find that you may have plateaus, usually at about 10% of total body weight lost, where your body just seems to take a week or so to adjust itself. During those times you may or may not lose weight but will continue to lose inches.

Pick one day per week as your.

Official.

Weigh-in day. That gives you something to gauge your progress on as your weigh may fluctuate several pounds from day to day. Good luck on becoming a loser.

Some people are born losers. The rest of us have to work at it...

I've been on for only 4 days and have lost 5 lbs already. I'm sure mostly water but I am going to stick to this in a very strict way...

Twenty five lbs the first month is impressive, and I'll take those 12 - 14 lbs per month. I reckon that it'll take me about eight months, or so, to lose this weight. Just in time for the next school year to begin..

Thanks..
