My clothes are so loose. Jackie, the first 2 weeks were the hardest! Stick with it honey. I have lost lbs in a year. I did the Optifast program along with excercise. Like any other diet you have to stick with it. Best program I have ever done. I have been on the optifast meal replacements for about 2 weeks now and it is the hardest thing i have done up to date.
I also need to lose lbs and so far i have lost 20lbs in 2 weeks. My question to you is, about how many pounds did you average to lose per week and what type of exercise did you do and are doing?
It is an amazing product. I love the Vanilla Powder Shakes. I blend it together with water, ice, powder and a sprinkle of Starbucks instant coffee. I have been on Optifast for six months. I have lost 60 pounds. I drink two shakes a day and a Lean Cuisine for dinner. In the beginning, I did three shakes and two cups of veggies. After three-four weeks, I switched to the shakes a day.
I could do this the rest of my life. Have been on Optifast for 3 weeks have only lost 5 pounds. Last week I gained 1 pound. What the hell is going on? I have followed the program with 4 products and 1 meal a day. I am on quite a bit of meds for A fib and Hypertension. Could it be that I have very painful arthritis and cannot do much activity?
I am ready to quit. It is sooo expensive not to have lost any more than 5 pounds. It should be 6 products a day and lots of water. So she has a long way to go. But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle.

I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now. I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T. The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go. I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day.
The first week was really tough and I had a hard time, but I stuck to it. Now I m satisfied and use to it. Planning on finishing up the second month and then on the 3rd month working in more home cooked meals and tracking to stay at the same calorie level. Then will switch over to the auto ship of Turbo shakes for my 4th month.
I have about 40 pounds to lose and feel like I am making some good headway with the Nutrisystem plan. Good job on the review, very well written. Wow, nice job Carolyn!

Just wanted to thank for your time for this wonderful read, and inspirational review!! Hi Kelly — sorry to hear that! Have you tried connecting with the Nutrisystem counseling service?
We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. My goal was to loose 30 lbs.
At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs. We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us. We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results.
We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience. Hi John — thanks for sharing your experience.
