My husband and I just completed week 11 of our Nutrisystem weight-loss journey. Overall, our week was fairly uneventful. I
Repeating the Fast 5 In addition to our personal weight-loss challenge, I have been participating in a 12-week MOMS On The Move weight loss challenge against the mothers in my local MOMS Club. We each put some cash in the pot and have been competing against each other in a race to see who loses the most percentage of weight at the end of 12 weeks. The end is near, only nine days away! Time flew. I made a personal goal to be at or below my pre-Liam pregnancy weight by the end of the contest. I am proud of my progress thus far but I still had seven pounds to lose as of Monday. I have not plateaued by any means, but my resolve has kicked into overdrive and I am terribly determined to reach my mini-goal by the end of the MOMS Club challenge! Begrudgingly, I decided to complete the Fast 5 for a second time to see
For the past several weeks Jeff and I have confirmed that Nutrisystem works, and that it has been a breeze for the most part – though I haven’t really outlined what is so great about this plan. Here is a list of what I love about Nutrisystem.

Read more about our Crunch Challenge here. In fact, starting small is the best way to avoid injury, avoid getting burnt out and simply set yourself up for success. I got a little discouraged while I was searching Pinterest one day for an ab calendar. They were all geared towards intermediate and advanced fitness buffs. I didn’t want to hurt myself for goodness sakes, so I devised my own calendar! This April Ab calendar is for exercise beginners. I guarantee, at the end of April you will feel stronger. Your little weakling abs will feel a little bit harder after 30 days, and putting a daily emphasis on fitness will slowly shift your mindset towards fitting more activity into your life.

Welcome to our second edition of the Baier (buy-er) Bonus! Weigh-ins are encouraging, but watching the inches disappear and the bodies shrink is the icing on the cake. Monthly, Jeff and I will (reluctantly) model for our progress photos and I will also be posting how many inches we have lost. We are putting it all out there folks, no holds barred. It’s still early in the game, but as we get smaller I will post comparison photos 🙂

One of the biggest mistakes when I did Nutrisystem the first time around was my “I don’t need no man” mentality. Like asking someone else for support was going to make me shrivel up and die. Yes, I did lose a lot of weight on my own – but I felt extremely isolated during that time. Well guess what, I obviously do need help and my weight loss journey is a lot less painful if I admit my weaknesses and reach out for every possible mentor! The Nutrisystem weight loss counselors have been a God send.
If you are just tuning in – I (Rebekah) am chronicling our husband and wife Nutrisystem weight loss journey. My husband (Jeff) and I woke up one day and realized that being overweight was no longer an option.
I am a very savvy deal-seeker and daily search for ways to make shopping more budget-friendly for my family. It was no different when we joined Nutrisystem. I sought out to find every possible way to save money on the program. With a little diligence, Nutrisystem can easily fit into your budget and most likely be even cheaper than your current regular monthly food budget.
