I was on the Nutrisystem forum trying to meet new people, and one person told me not to expect to lose the same amount each week and to not worry if its lower than the previous. Well needless to say, she was correct. This week I have only lost 1.8lbs, and I ask myself, did I already hit a stalling point? Don’t get me wrong, I am happy to have lost anything, but I guess I expected it to be a little more.
I have noticed that my stomach has gotten more used to the smaller meals (which are correctly portioned for weight loss), and I no longer feel hungry throughout the day like I did my first week. This is to the point, where I almost forgot to eat my in-between meals, which I read can cause no weight loss, because you’re not getting the right amount of nutrition to keep your body going and burning those calories. I also slacked a little bit on the water. I was drinking copious amounts last week, so I need to buckle down and start drinking more this time around.

I also had dinner plans with family on Thursday, and we ended up choosing Applebees, because I knew they had meals under 550 calories there. I was good and stuck with my original plan of eating light. I didn’t even order a drink, even though my boyfriend had a couple. I had the determination and willpower to say no to myself, which was kind of difficult.
I am now thinking that I need to incorporate exercise into this program, even though its not necessary in order to lose weight, but even so, I need it in order to build up the muscles in my back, since I seem to have problems with it every so often. So I am on the hunt for a good elliptical since we already have a weight lifting gym out in the garage. Anyone own one that has any recommendations of what is good and what is not?
