Nutrisystem Nation Week 5 Results

Five weeks on Nutrisystem. Check!

Not much new has happened in the last week. I’m still eating all the food and haven’t given in to any temptations.

I was at Target the other day, and they have the best price in town for Betty Crocker fruit snacks. My favorite. But I didn’t buy any. Go me! (Although I did buy “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” on Blu-Ray for $14.99. Score!)

How often I weigh myself…

Okay, here’s something you should know about me: I weigh myself every day. Monday is just my ‘official’ weigh in day. Monday is only one that really counts. Still, it’s a daily thing for me. In fact, I weigh myself several times a day.

Now, some people say you should only weigh yourself once a week. But that rule only really applies to people who fall off the weight loss wagon when they see a small stall on the scale.

Since I don’t have that problem, I weigh myself a lot. I actually think it’s fun.

The reason I bring this up is that, for the first time since I started Nutrisystem, I wasn’t seeing much of a change on the scale over the week. It barely budged. It waivered between no pounds lost and maybe –0.4 pounds.

Yeah, that’s not great, but it’s to be expected. I know full well that I’m not going to have such huge losses all the time. I wasn’t scared or upset at all. It was bound to happen.

I was fully reserved to the fact that today’s official weigh-in wasn’t going to be that great.

And then I weighed myself this morning.

week05Weirdly enough, I lost 3.0 pounds in week 5. It’s like my body finally caught up to all this work in the very last second.

So I guess that barely-lost-any-weight week will have to wait.

And guess what? That’s a total loss of 18 pounds for 5 weeks on Nutrisystem. I’m so close to a 20 pound loss I can taste it!

Here’s my stats since I started:

  • Week 1: –6.4 pounds
  • Week 2: –2.4 pounds (-8.8 total)
  • Week 3: –3.8 pounds (-12.6 total)
  • Week 4: –2.4 pounds (-15.0 total)
  • Week 5: –3.0 pounds (-18.0 total)

  1. Keep it up 🙂 I’m glad you’re sticking to your plan, it seems to be paying off!

    • Thanks, MM! Yep, totally paying off. Good thing, too, since I have my 10 year high school reunion in a few months. 😉
