I am at the end of Week 2 and have not lost but 1 lb. No cheating whatsoever. I think it's too much food for me. Is that possible? Should I skip a lunch or dinner entree?..

Your question was: Why am I not losing weight with Nutrisystem?.

NO!!!!!! You need to eat everything! There are a lot of factors that contribute to your weight loss at first. How much you have to lose, what your diet was like before NS, your age, your activity level, etc. I didn't lose much at all the first 3 weeks, then went on to average 1.5 a week and lost 45 pounds. Stick with this and it will work for you too!.

But, being so new, it wouldn't be a bad idea to call a counselor and go over the past few days of food with them. Just to make sure you are following everything exactly.

Good luck!..

Call a counselor! I am losing very slowly. I called a counselor yesterday and we sorted through things to see what might be going on. Turns out she thinks I wasn't eating enough b/c I was skipping extra carbs that I was supposed to be eating. We shall see, but it is definitely worth the call. Believe me, I know your pain...

I feel like I am in the same boat, I am a slow loser and it's easy to get discouraged. I too read about some peeps losing large amounts in a small period of time, and compared to what I used to eat, I feel I should be losing a lot more. But Im going to stick with it and hope for more weight loss...

If you started in June and have lost 11 pounds, you are within the normal range. You guys need to have more realistic expectations or you'll be dissapointed all the time...

I know that we read on the Discussion Boards about people losing huge amounts of weight in a very short time, people who have even less to lose than we do and who seem to lose so quickly, doing the same things we are doing but we are the ones losing slowly. It helps to remember that we are all different and so many factors go into losing the extra "us.".

I didn't lose a pound, not an ounce, the first two weeks. I was 100% and walking a mile or more 3 times a week. I knew that NutriSystem worked, since I had lost weight on the "old" NutriSystem back in 1987-1988 and kept it off for years (until menopause hit and ran in about a day and a half, no symptoms, but 90 pounds gained...grrrrr).

So, I stuck with it, and now I'm down 105 pounds (and under GOAL!). The Dietitians have said that healthful, steady weight loss on the NutriSystem plan is 1-2.5 pounds per week, average. Mine was 1.18 pounds per week..

I have never eaten a lot of food, just the wrong choices (fried is good, french fries are better, you know what I mean?) and I've always guzzled water, so I didn't have the typical water weight to lose at first. Also, our age, race, gender, metabolism, past eating AND dieting habits, they all figure in our speed/ease of weight loss.

Exercise helps, of course, but many lose weight without being able to exercise at all. Check out NSMember Hazelangeleyes for an incredible story of someone who has lost close to 100 pounds while wheelchair-bound and unable to exercise at all. But, as she says, she would LOVE to be ABLE to exercise (even walk!) and can't imagine anyone who can exercise not exercising. I do SO agree with her! I started walking a mile every other day and, thank the Lord, now walk 20 miles a week...and love every step!.

Hang in there...you work the program and you WILL lose on NutriSystem! Just stick with it...it WILL work, and know that I, among everyone else here, will be rooting for you to succeed!..
