Weight Loss Scoreboard: Week 21

I’ve just finished the first week of my sixth month on the NutriSystem diet program and I could not be more pleased with the overall success. But how did I do this past week with a major milestone looming? Continue reading to find out.


I’m not going to complain too much about missing my 2lb. a week goal since I hit another major milestone – 60 lbs. lost. Now that my diet has hit sixty, I’m fairly certain it will start getting letters from AARP.

Once I entered my weight into the NuMi app, I got the following email:


I’m pleased to report there is truth in advertising and I now look exactly like the girl on the left. So how did you do at your guesses this week?

It seems that at least half of you continue to be optimistic that I can return to the 2.5 lbs. or more per week that I was averaging during the first few months. I do hope to return to that level at some point but I am pleased at any week that ends in a loss. I am the Cleveland Browns of dieting.

So with 60 lbs. lost comes another bear. Those of you that follow the Un-Bear-able Saga know that one thing NutriSystem is not so good at is delivering these motivational bears in a timely manner. As I write this, my 50 lb. bear, which should have arrived with my last food shipment a few weeks ago, is stuck in limbo somewhere between the customer service center in Diet Plains, Nebraska and my mailbox.

So the big question is: Will the 50 lb. bear arrive before the 60 lb. bear?

Stay tuned…
