How Did Take Shape For Life Start?
Officer adopts homeless woman's baby daughter. I started 2 weeks ago and I have lost 12 lbs. How many pounds do you want to lose? In addition to meal plans, Nutrisystem offers a diverse a la carte menu. I also have access to Nutrisystems website. Give it a try guys and I expect your girlfriend will be just as happy as mine is.
This is really teaching me portion control. I was def eating way to big portions before. I will keep you posted on next weeks weigh in! Ok, here's my input: I have tried every diet out there-seriously. Nutrisystem was horrible for me. I didn't like the food I rememeber one soup smelled exactly like dog food. I stuck to it for 2 weeks tho and didn't lose anything. I knew that I could not rely on pre-packaged foods and the only way I would be happy and get my healthy foods in would be WW.
It has the highest success rate for people losing and keeping it off, plus it's one that doctors will always recommend. I started in January and down 35lbs already. I can eat and drink what I want-which is the reality of life anyway, not eating pre-packaged foods!
My opinion is if you try WW and it does nothing for you, then you din't follow the program exactly how you are supposed to.
Lastly, to lose healthy you should lose no more than 2 lbs a week. Slow but steady winds the race! You can lose fast other ways but it WILL come back. I have lost 7 lbs so far. I did a typo in my previous message of I am happy with this program.
I like the idea of no measuring food out. I know exactly what to eat to get my calories in. I really think this program teaches you portion control so when you do go back to eating the regular foods you know how much you should eat.
I have been eating very healthy I also feel very good. I have tried WW before and it didn't work for me. Not to say other people wouldn't have success For me though I think this is the way to go right now.
I am doing it for 3 months and then going on maintenenance. Actually NS has lots of recipes and stuff for when you do maintenance to keep you within the calorie limits also. So far this is the only thing I have tried where I actually am losing every week and at a healthy loss of about 2 lbs a week! Good luck to you!

It's something new and exciting and you're losing weight! It's probably like a vacation too, from having to fix a meal from scratch. Here comes the big however. The truly important thing is the long term result. I remember when Oprah Winfrey was on NutriSystem.
It was played up as the greatest thing going. After being on it for a long time, she came out on stage one day looking really great thin waistline etc. But what does she look like today? I no longer watch TV but from magazine pictures she appears to be quite large again.
In my opinion, it falls under the heading of "fad diet" and fad diets don't work in the long run. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't enjoy it for the time being. Just be cautious in what you expect for the long run. Your post caught my eye. I have been on Nutrisystem for almost three weeks and have lost a little over 5 pounds.
I am only planning on being on the plan for 28 days with a goal of losing a total of 10 pounds. It has taught me to look at portion sizes in a whole new light. I have become a fan of sugerfree gelatin and drink mixes. The big thing for me is the mixing of protein, fruit and vegetables in a certain order. I also plan to use prepackaged foods available in the supermarket to replace the Nutrisystem entrees later. I hope I can mention this on this board because something else has become a huge help in logging my weight daily.
I have an iPhone and there is a free app that is wonderful in entering foods I eat daily, logging exercise and setting a weight loss goal. It tells you how many more calories are available after logging lunch or your snacks, etc.
It is easy to use and helped me get past a weight plateau this week. The reviews have been glowing for Lose It! That's great to hear! I am at a 10 lb loss now. I am very happy with NS!
I really like the food too. I just got another shipment in of the food. Got a free week of food also. I am just finishing up that box and going on maintenance. I have been making some really good low fat recipes that I have collected. Very high in protein and vitamins. I am really excited about getting to my goal weight by Christmas. Good luck with NS! I am sure you will do great! Last edited by moderator2; at I have a feeling these last four or five pounds are going to be tough to lose.
I don't think I could continue on the Nutrisystem food indefinitely. There are several items I like, but several others that I can't quite bring myself to try. Good luck to you as well.

What makes Nutrisystem one of the best weight loss meal delivery services is its unique weight loss philosophy that has already helped millions of dieters of all shapes and sizes reach their weight goals. The program is designed to help you get in the best shape of your life, regardless of your potential dietary requirements and restrictions and how many pounds your need or want to shed.
However, there are three major problems with these types of regimes. First, if you are starving, you are not happy. Second, if you lose weight by starving, the yo-yo effect is inevitable.
Third, highly restrictive diets are bad for your health. Nutrisystem is the complete opposite of starvation diets. It allows you to eat 5 or 6 times a day and never feel hungry.
If you are not hungry all the time, you do not feel like you are dieting at all and it is easier to stick to the regime and get in the desired shape. Plus, all the meals are healthy and balanced, so you can improve your overall health and well-being while shedding pounds.
They are rich in protein and fiber and contain low-glycemic carbs, which help keep your blood sugar in balance and reduce those nasty cravings. However, Nutrisystem provides more than just meals. Along with your regular deliveries of tasty food, you get handy grocery guides that help you eat properly outside the program, plenty of extra information that can help you better understand the weight loss programs, and expert guidance from counselors and dietitians, as well as helpful tools and trackers.
