That’s What Friends Are For – #NSNation Update – Week 8

What I have learned in this weight loss journey is that you need to surround yourself with people who support you. It makes a lot easier to stick with the Nutrisystem program when your family and friends have your back!  I have found a lot of allies in this journey.  I love that one of my SIL’s will Facebook message me with words of encouragement.  (Thanks T!).  I have another SIL who when we are texting that will ask how it is going.  (Thanks C!).  Sometimes it is great to just know that people care and are invested in your life. It also makes you more motivated to stick with your program.  I have some great blogging friends like Elizabeth, Annie, and Audrey who often send me message of encouragement.  I have a husband who tries not to sabotage my efforts.  He’s also let me bring more healthy foods into our home and doesn’t complain too much about them.  :)  And a special thanks to all of you readers and commenters.  I read each and every comment, and I can’t tell you much they have helped (especially the week that my weight loss stalled out!  It was great to read all of your experiences).

Now, I’ve read that you shouldn’t tell people when you are on a diet. I hate to respectfully disagree.  Without the support of all of you, I don’t know if I could have done this!  And a another special thanks goes to Nutrisytem.  Without them, I don’t think I could have done this.  I’ve tried to lose weight before, but I have never been this successful!

Onto the important update now!

THIS WEEKS WEIGHT LOSS: 2.2
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 23.6

The bad thing is that I have no shorts that fit me.  The good news is that I am soooo close to 25 lbs lost!!

  1. Way to go Lisa!

  2. Thank you for this! I'm two days in and while I'm trying to focus on what I'm doing with the new SUCCESS! program…it's the support (your comment) that keeps me motivated. I think losing weight has to be the most difficult thing. Thank you for sharing your weight loss…it has me inspired!

    • Feel free to comb through all my weekly posts. :) I'm glad I can inspire someone! The crazy thing is that I don't see the weight loss that everyone else does.

      The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have manages to change my thinking. I have been able to go out to eat (not all the time of course) and eat and still be able to lose weight! Instead of eating a 800 calorie sandwich, I order a lite version or I only eat half. It's little changes like that that make a difference.

      Feel free to contact me any time you need to!

  3. EIGHT weeks, people! She has lost 23.6 pounds in eight weeks! Having spent a weekend with her recently, I can vouch for the fact that she is working this program HARD. She should be on a Nutrisystem commercial!

  6. Yay! Keep it up! I agree, it is easier to lose weight when your friends and family support you.

  7. I can relate to what you are going through. Currently on the same situation, I'm having a hard loosing my post-pregnancy pounds. I lost weight in some weeks, then regain all back and much more. I hope I find the weight loss tool that will work for me.
