    Hi There
    I just wanted to tell you that I've been where you are and Iknow just exactly how you feel. Last April, I weighed 242 lbs and by the end of Nov., I weighed 128 lbs. Irelied on my Spark friends to help me and encourage me. Of course, my husband of 56 yrs.was there for me every step of the way. I exercised everyday even if I didn't want to. Get yourself a mind set and don't let anyone sabatage you., which my family is good at. Just get yourself started and I know each day will get easier. I'm 74 yrs. old with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and my tryglycerides aren't too good either. I should say they were not good. They are now within normal range. You can do this. Carol Keep in touch.

    Hi, Teresa--

    Well, I lost 10.5 lbs my 1st month back on NutriSystem. That's a good start; now to just keep going ... it's already getting difficult, much as I didn't think it would be.

    How are you doing?

    Hi, Teresa--

    I am just finishing my 1st week on NutriSystem (THIS time--did it last Spring, too). I was wanting to find some success stories, so I typed "first week on nutrysystem" into Bing--and lo and behold, up popped you!

    I just read through your last several blogs, and oh my, are you and I ever in the same place! I could have written each and every one of them.

    I just decided the exact same thing as you--that I'm not disciplined enough to do it myself, apparently, so back to NutriSystem I went. Lost 40 lbs on it last year; got down to 200 (SOOOO close to Onederland!!), and then I blew it.

    So, I weigh in on Wednesday morning at my local center, and I can't wait. I know I've done really well, but I haven't weighed yet, so don't know how well for sure. I have been perfect on the program. You're right--it's SO easy! That's what I love about it.

    When I was thinking about getting back on it, the evil voice in my head was saying "you don't wanna do that--you'll get bored eating the same old things over and over". But then reality kicked in, and I realized that's EXACTLY what I do when I'm not on a program--I eat the same things over and over and over--but instead of NutriSystem, it's McDonalds, Dominos, Ben & Jerry's, etc etc etc. I don't get bored eating THOSE things over and over, so why not some healthier things??

    Anyway, I also feel like you that I can do it this time. I'm so sick of being this heavy. You might wanna read some of my blogs to see what similar paths we're on. :-)

    Anyway, I added you as a friend so I can check in with you and see how you're doing--hope you'll do the same. GOOD LUCK--and let's keep going this time, right?
