Nutrisystem Week 3: Smooth Sailing

I want to do a shout out to the weight scale that my husband is using – the My Weigh XL-550 Talking Bathroom Scale. (Note for new readers, this is not a sponsored review. I simply appreciate a good product and like to share my opinions with the world!) So far it seems fairly accurate for a scale that handles large amounts of weight. I actually weigh in on two scales and use the average (they are always within 6 oz to 1 lb of each other). 

Nutrisystem Week 2: I’m Eating Like a King!

Although I don’t think that my husband, Jeff shares my sentiment – I felt like I ate SO much this week! Here’s the dealio. I finished the Fast 5 on Thursday, and it did exactly what I anticipated – shed quite a bit of weight and shrunk my stomach. I mean – seriously shrunk my stomach, way smaller than I could have even imagined. The first day I ate the regular plan (I am doing the My Way Select Plan – Complete Women 1800) I was uncomfortably full.

Weight Loss Memoires: And we gained

Nothing like a little frustration at the beginning of a diet. Three days post the Nutrisystem Fast 5, and after the initial 7.5 pound weight loss, I’m up 3.1 pounds. Yesterday – in lieu of my three extras and my afternoon snack, I enjoyed a piece of my sons 1st birthday cake – but unless it was a 10,000 calorie piece of cake then I am perplexed about why the scale moved so much in the wrong direction. In fact I’m a little upset and disappointed all at the same time.

Weight Loss Memoires: Goals!

I’ve been looking forward to writing this post! An important part of the weight loss process for me is goal setting. My husband, Jeff, does not share in this sentiment and I am aware that everyone has a different learning curve, if this doesn’t speak to you then goal setting isn’t your thing and that is okay! The important thing is to find your “thing”.

Nutrisystem Week One: Day One

Writing this at the end of Nutrisystem Day 1. From here on out, I will be posting about our Nutrisystem journey once a week on Fridays. Jeff and I both started with the Fast 5 this morning. By afternoon, it became evident that the Fast 5 was going to be dangerously low calorie levels for Jeff (with the daily intake being roughly 1000 calories). Just yesterday, he probably ate nearly 5000. He was starting to get light-headed and was beginning to feel sick. I contacted a Nutrisystem counselor, and they confirmed that he should start with the Fast 5, even with over 100 pounds to lose.
