This weekend I had a horrible time with cravings for some reason, I really had not been craving anything up until this point so I was a little surprised. The Nutrisystem food is so satisfying and I feel like I can have just about anything with their variety of foods but for some reason I was having some cravings this weekend. I decided to dig out my information on cravings and put together a list of coping skills to help combat cravings.
I am a week into my second month of Nutrisystem and I am really starting to feel the benefits. When I started this journey I was a bit nervous about how long I would be able to stay on the diet because in the past (on other diets) I usually hit a wall after a couple of weeks and end up cheating or giving up all together. I have to say Nutrisystem has been very different. I have not had any problems staying on the diet and I can really see this being a program I can use long term. I’m looking at it more as a lifestyle change than a diet. I have even begun thinking about how I can fit the program into my lifestyle with spring coming up.
I have officially completed my first month on Nutrisystem! As exciting all of the weight I have lost on the scale has been I think I am more excited about all the progress and changes I am seeing off the scale. One thing I have learned over the years is that the scale is not always the best way to measure my progress, sometimes seeing changes in my body or how I feel can be just as exciting as seeing the number on the scale go down.
I just finished up week three on the Nutrisystem diet and I have to say I am really feeling great. I feel a lot healthier and have really noticed that I’m able to do more and more each day. I am still loving the variety and taste of the food. I think the food makes the diet a lot easier. Since I enjoy the food I don’t find it hard to stay on track at all which I have struggled with in the past. Having them pre-packaged takes all the guess work out of the process and makes healthy eating so much easier.
I feel like I have really gotten into the groove this week. I am loving the food in Nutrisystem, I am really surprised at how good most of it tastes. I think so far I have only found one thing that I didn’t care for and I have tried something new every single day since I started. So as someone who has done several diets in the past and tried tons of “diet” foods I have to say Nutrisytem by far has been the best when it comes to the food you use with the diet.
First though I would like to tell you a little about me and why I chose to start NutriSystem. My story started when I was a baby. I remember my mom telling me that she put me on my first diet when I was an infant, she thought that I ate to much formula and the doctor told her I was above the weight average for my age so she would limit the amount of formula she would give me. I was always bigger then the other kids and my parents often put me on restrictive diets as a child....
