Your question was: Need support to stick with Nutrisystem.
Don't give up! I have been on 3 weeks now and have slipped up more times than I care to admit! But I'm not giving up - not with all the money I've invested! You're worth it girlie!!!..
Wow, look and you shall receive. I was just about to post about have a major slip! I have been doing rather well since starting in Jan and I have lost over 20lbs. Wednesday night and yesterday I just completely fell off the wagon. No reason, no special occasion, just a big old stumble and fall.
BUT...and this is a good BUT! Along with feeling completely guilty this morning, I also felt a new drive. It was weird. 20lbs is a lot even though I have about another 40 to go, I do not want to give up! And a slip up does not need to lead to the wagon completely driving off in the sunset! Just remember the small goals and live in those small achievements.
Sometimes it is hard to read the boards because a lot of the people who are on the boards say they have been on the plan 100% for months/years. I think this is AWESOME! But for those of us who sometime make a small stumble, it is good to hear that other have been there done that and they got right back up on that wagon!..
Way to go!!!! I have found myself stumbling and not sure why. I re-committed myself this week and found the scale moved nicely..
We all slip and fall but don't give up....just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back on the wagon!! We are all human and cannot be perfect...but don't let one slip keep you from getting back on track. Just begin again and all will well!!..
First off, you did NOT fail on Wed. You had a slip up..
We have quite a few things in common. I just started this week. I'm new to the forums (this is my first post). Our goal weight is about the same, except I need to lose about 50 lbs..
I've tried losing weight before but didn't stick with it. But I think the reason I failed was because I was too hardcore about it & wouldn't let myself cheat. But when I did cheat, it all went downhill from there..
So I'm taking a different approach this time. I've accepted that I'm going to cheat at times, but I'm not going to let it ruin my plan. When it happens, I'll scold myself a bit & get right back on the plan..
Don't give up!!! You can do it!!! You will do it!!!..
YOU CAN DO IT!! ! If I can, anyone can! I have a job, four kids, a husband, and am almost done with my Master's degree (ie I am in graduate school to top it all off), and I am sticking to it 100%, period..
Honestly, it is easier to be 100% than 95%. It really, really is. That 5% cheat time just undermines your determination, slows your progress, and brings on the cravings for more cheat food..
I have co worker lunches, too, in fact did today. I always order a house salad without cheese, croutons, etc (ie, just the greens and free salad veggies), plus fat free dressing on the side. Then I eat a Nutrisystem lunch bar after lunch. Works great for me!.
When I feel bad for myself while my coworkers are eating fattening burgers and other yummy looking lunches, as mean as this might sound, I always notice that most of them are overweight! That goes for anyone who makes a comment to me about what I am eating ("you're just having a salad??? Why???"). That almost ALWAYS comes from a fat person. Thin people could care less what I am eating..
Remember, you can do it!..
If it is important to you, you will either figure out how to stay on plan with co-worker lunches or decline the invites. Keep doing cheats and you will never make it. your choice babe...

So glad I found this thread today!!! I was doing great for two weeks then completely fell off plan over weekend and gained and have been so depressed about it that I've had a hard time getting back on plan!.
I've tried losing so many ways that I feel like it's never going to happen for me! Nutrisystem is my 'last hope' because I feel like I've tried everything short of having my stomach stapled!!!! (And I'm too 'thin' for that, lol! Told me to come back if I gain 50 lbs!!!).
One of my 'problems' is that when people start to know I'm dieting and I start losing weight and they compliment me, it sends me straight to the fridge!!! I will admit that I grew up in a verbally abusive home and then married a verbally abusive man and stayed there for 20 years. A counselor once told me that perhaps I've been told for so long that I'm not worth much of anything, that deep inside I BELIEVE that, so when I start to feel happy about something, I sabotage myself!.
Anyone else have a story similar??? Could REALLY use encouragement and support!!!.
Today is a new day, and I walked the treadmill for 25 minutes and have 'stuck to plan' so far this morning...I really want this to work this time, tired of feeling unhappy!..
No one ever responds when I post getting a complex..
Big salads, babes. Including one late at night. Including whehter or not you or hungry. Even whether or not you cheated (bad food MAY NOT be allowed to displace good.) That and post a lot...
