Nutrisystem Week 4: Customizing Our Menus

As of today, Jeff and I have officially completed month one of our Nutrisystem weight loss adventure. For the most part thus far it has been virtually painless. Definitely beginning to form an opinion about the Nutrisystem foods. For one, I truly dislike the bars. They taste okay – fudge graham is probably the best. Though after I eat one for a meal, I kind of want to say, “that’s it?” The bar is definitely the one meal that is a stark reminder that we are on a diet, and I really do not like those reminders! Also not a big fan of any of the tomato-based meals. Unfortunately, there are a lot of them. 

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: 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”.

Wakeup call: we are fat & it is time to make a change.

So it is no secret to friends and family that Jeff and I have let ourselves go. Life happens, convenience food slowly creeps into our kitchen pantry and basement freezer, and then eventually we’re eating out more than we’re eating in. I obviously knew I needed to make a change long before it started messing with our budget, but I really got a wakeup call when I realized that I was almost a year post baby #2 and I had not lost a pound of baby weight.
