Nutrisystem Nation Week 52 and Before and After a Year of Weight Loss

Today’s a big day. It marks the end of my 52nd week on Nutrisystem. That means I’ve been losing weight for an entire year. A year!

While this post is still going to have my weekly weigh-in and periodic body measurements, it’s really all about my Nutrisystem anniversary (or “Nutriversary”). How much progress have I seen in a year?

Plus, before and after pictures!


Let’s talk about numbers.

Weight loss is all about the numbers, isn’t it? And I’ve had a lot of change when it comes to digits.

In the past year…

  • I’ve lost 83.4 pounds.
  • That equals about 1.6 pounds lost per week on average.
  • I’ve gone from a tight size 18 to a roomy size 12.
  • I’ve gone from an XXL to a roomy L.
  • I’ve gone from a 42DDD to a 38C or 38D.
  • I’ve lost a total of 44.5 inches over my upper arm, chest, waist, hips and thigh. And that’s just one upper arm and one thigh.
  • I’ve had a 32.63% weight loss percentage. That’s about a third of my body.

Want some visuals? Here’s my before and after weight loss photos for the year:

Wow! It’s so weird how much someone can change in a year, and not just the color of their hair.

I have a waist!

Although it’s now been a year on Nutrisystem, I’m not done losing weight. So, let’s talk about my future numbers:

  • I have 17.2 pounds left to lose to go from overweight to normal BMI.
  • I have 37.2 pounds left to lose to reach my goal weight of 135 pounds.

Only 37.2 pounds? That’s nothing when you think about all I’ve achieved in the last year. I’ll be getting there soon enough!

A Pause for Thanks

I just want to say a quick thank you to Meredith and everyone else at Nutrisystem for giving me this awesome opportunity. I know I wouldn’t be celebrating such an awesome year of success if it wasn’t for them.

Thank you!

Now for the weigh-in.

I want to preface my weigh-in with the reminder that yesterday was Easter…

Okay, this is what the scale said this morning:

week52I’ve gained 3.4 pounds this week. That means I’ve lost 83.4 pounds in the last 52 weeks.

Darn you, Easter! And, just like after Christmas, I’ve gained a little (a lot?). You’ll see me back down next week. Don’t worry.

Body measurements, y’all!

I measure parts of my body every 4 weeks to see changes in size. Here are the changes from week 48 to now:

  • Upper arm: No Change (-4.5 inches total)
  • Chest: –0.75 inches (-11.5 inches total)
  • Waist: –0.5 inches (-10.5 inches total)
  • Hips: No Change (-12 inches total)
  • Thigh: +0.25 inches (-6 inches total)

That means I’ve lost 1 inch total in the last 4 weeks, and 44.5 inches total in 52 weeks.

I’m not surprised at all that I gained a little in my thighs. I started running this week, and doing some new harder-core exercises on the days I’m not running. My thighs are getting super muscly!

      I used to hang out on the Nutrisystem forums, but not anymore. Not for any real reason or anything. I’m just not that social. 🙂

      Good luck with your Nutrisystem journey! I’m here if you ever have any questions. You’re going to do great! 😀

  9. I found myself feeling very sad and had stumbled upon your site the other day. I became re-inspired and with a go to attitude that if you can do it, so can I! I am on NS and am a newbie. I still have so much to learn.
    Good job on ALL of your successes and I don’t know you, but I am proud of you!

  10. Wow, you look amazing, seriously! Congrats, Trisha!
