Hello all, my husband and I did Nutrisystem back in 2008 and it went well.

Now it is my second go at it and my husband is on Nutrisystem again too. He seems to be doing well. We are in the middle of our 3rd week on NS.

My goal is to get below BMI 25 and maintain. Currently my BMI is 29.4.

I must be doing something wrong or not quite right. The weight isn't coming off. I've lost 3.6 lbs since beginning Nutrisystem 3 1/2 weeks ago. I actually went down 5.8 lbs but am now back to 3.6 lbs two days in a row. I'm open for suggestions!! HELP!..

Your question was: Why is my weight the same with Nutrisystem?.

I need help too. My scale hasn't moved in 3 weeks. I have been on Nutrisystem since Jan. 25th. I have lost 46 pounds. But today it went up 2 pounds and I even did an hour of exercise yesterday between walking, ellipitical, and treadmill. It is so frustrating...

I am not sure what plan you're on, but the first thing I noticed is the bread. The women's basic plan doesn't call for a carb unless you are eating a meal like chicken salad, grilled chicken, hamburger or veggie fajita that calls for a carb to be added. Second, you have two dairy servings in your afternoon snack. Again, I don't know if your plan calls for this or not. I would eat more variety. I would eat a lot of different fruits, veggies, entrees, etc.

I would also try more lean proteins than dairies. Have tuna, shrimp, grilled chicken for an afternoon snack. Make sure to check your serving sizes too. A fruit serving should be about 60 calories. A dairy protein serving should be 100 cals or less, 3 gr fat or less, and 7 gr protein or more.

Another thing that helps get the scale moving is to eat dinner for lunch and lunch for dinner. Drink more water and increase the intensity of your workouts..

On the women's plan, your snack should only include one protein/dairy serving - either the yogurt OR the cheese...

Comment #4

I'm also noticing a morning dairy snack that my plan doesn't include...

Comment #5

Other than what others have pointed out, you aren't eating enough veggies at dinner. It's supposed to be 2 or 3 servings, and if you choose 2, then the third should be a fruit serving..

Also, the yoplait probably doesn't fit the stats for dairy/protein servings. I'd choose proteins over dairy if you're struggling to lose...

Comment #6

Thank you all for your insight and comments. Yesterday I did have 2 dairy listed for afternoon snack and really only should have listed one. But, I didn't know where to list it and I did have it. The string cheese was a grab and go about 6pm as we were darting out the door to get to Costco 30 mins. away to shop before they closed. Knew I needed something or I would be in big trouble by the time we got home.



I'm on the Women's Silver Plan which you can look at below. It calls for an afternoon dairy or protein & fruit..

Everything that everyone has mentioned or suggested is right on target for me. I will do more protein and cut back on the dairy. I have found it hard to get all my veggies & fruits in for the entire day. Will certainly work harder at that one. I thought I was doing well with serving sizes based on the Nutrisystem guide lines. As for the bread, it isn't a daily thing either, only if I have the peanut butter, and I thought that it could take the place of one of the veggies since I only have one 45c slice of whole wheat.

And thank you so much for the suggestion of dinner for lunch and vice versa. Well, all in all, I have to say the meal that I posted isn't a typical day after all because my calories usually are between 1200 & 1350..

It sounds like you need to follow the plan 100% for awhile until you learn it and are comfortable with it. By being 100%, the scale will move. Those 'not an every day occurrence' may be affecting your loss..

If you're going to the store, you need to plan for it. You could have grabbed carrots or another portable veggie, if you didn't think you could go to the store without it. Have a bottle of water on the way to the store. There are a lot of options that would have kept you on plan, instead of the extra string cheese, which I don't find that filling anyways..

Morning everyone,.

I'm happy to report that the scale moved downward 1.2 lbs this morning. Thank you again for the suggestions and observations. I worked very hard to meet the Nutrisystem daily requirements yesterday. And will continue to work hard to stay on track.

Hope everyone has a great day while doing Nutrisystem and drinking our water!.

It should be noted, too, that even before this latest loss, you really weren't doing that bad. About 1 pound a week. I averaged 1.5 a week over the 6 months it took me to get to goal. Tweak your plan as suggested, then .... patience and focus!..

Keep up the great work!! It is worth it...

Comment #11

Thanks so much for the comments. A little neighbor girl has gotten me up and doing Wii Just Dance. Here I go!.

The Weight Ticker shows my weight on 6/1/2010. When I started Nutrisystem on June 21, 2010 it was.

186.6. So, guess I'm doing better than I realized all things considered. Following plan to a T today and ongoing for a while at least to make sure I've gotten it down pat...
