Good question... I dunno what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google 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..
Let me add on:.
Guy-weight also just fluctuates a lot. Personally, I think the scale deserves attention maybe once a week and then it's just sort of keeping "general info" on progress..
I can go up or down 2-3 lbs in 24 hours even when I'm doing things 100% over the course of days. Doesn't matter..
I've gotten to the point where I sort of take an average every week or so and don't sweat it too much. The weight is generally trending down and the individual trip to the scale just doesn't mean much..
Give you an example! This is the past 2-3 weeks..
Day 1: Monday 9:00am 211.1#.
Day 3: Wednesday 8:00am 209.3#.
Day 5: Friday 8:45am 208.5#.
Day 1: Monday 8:30am 208.00#.
Day 3: Wednesday 9:00am 209.8#.
Day 4: Thursday 10:00am 210.2#.
Day 1: Monday 8:40am 208.2#.
Day 3: Wednesday 8:25am 207.9#.
Day 5: Friday 9:30am 208.3#.
So what is my actual weight? Who cares? I started at 252.0# in February so it's "better" (lol)..
Down 2 lbs, up 2 lbs..the trend is mostly in the right direction and I'm working on it..
The scale (to me) is a tool. It's not accomplishing a damn thing. It just measures..
I accomplish things. I eat right (or don't), I drink the water, I exercise, limit foods, measure, deny myself, applaud myselfso I accomplish..
Screw the scale. It's not that valuable at the end of the day in some ways..
My 2 cents.
Points well taken but for some of us fat forkers strict adherence to a consistent use of the scale is an absolute necessity. Using the mirror test won't get it because most of us tubbies have warped vison when it comes to seeing our healthy size. I know what happened last time I stopped the daily weigh ins, I started letting little cheats become big cheats and gained approx 100lbs. Your Mileage May Vary (I hope it does) but I will probably be a slave to the scale for a long long time, maybe forever. I was ok with the plateaus last time but looked forward to seeing when the dam would break and the scale would move...
That, my man .... is why we.
As my Grandfather used to say,.
That is No..
My wife is On Program too, with similar results. It's tough for those who are slow losers..
Has she called a Nutrisystem counselor? Sometimes you think you doing everything right and found out something small you are doing is wrong or the counselor might give some ideas of how to change things up, worth a call...
Well, we're following all the rules... I will ask her to make the call. Thanks!.
(she's not fat like me.)..
