Six Degrees of Nutrisystem
Six Degrees of Nutrisystem is my play on the concept of six degrees of separation (also referred to as the “Human Web”) which refers to the idea that everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on Earth. I came up with the idea that any one person is at most six steps away from Nutrisystem. What made me come to this realization was the fact that I would be nonchalantly enjoying my Nutrisystem lunch, usually a soup or pasta, and someone would say, “Is that Nutrisystem? My uncle tried it.” If it wasn’t an uncle, it was a cousin. Or maybe it was a coworker. Or a friend of a friend. No matter who it is, they are six connections away from Nutrisystem!
Don’t believe me? Try it. I dare ya!!! No, I’m serious. Take a minute to ask the person next to you or to call someone you know and ask them if they have tried or know someone that has tried Nutrisystem. I bet they will say yes, if not they should call someone and I bet that person will. If they haven’t then they will have at least seen the commercials… they are everywhere!
At my office I can count five people off the top of my head that have seen me enjoying Nutrisystem and mentioned their mom’s/friend’s/dad’s try at it. In a way it’s cool, but then again I don’t want to hear about it. Why? Because I don’t want to be classified as someone just trying a diet. Their stories always end with “but he gained the weight back.” I like the beginning of their stories where they say how much weight was lost and the success that was had. But unfortunately, it is the truth and unless you take the right steps to maintain your fat loss… you will inevitably regain it.
I know I’ve been there.
This time, I am never going back! So far I’m doing great. Having been on Nutrisystem for almost two months now, I have dropped 18 lbs and change. Not bad…
