When I started this journey I wasn’t really sure how I would do on the program. I always get worried when starting something new but I was quickly surprised at how much I loved the program and how successful it was for me. Not just in the area of weight loss but also feeling better, doing more, and enjoying life with my kiddos and husband.
I just finished up my second month of Nutrisystem! I could not be happier with my decision to start this program. I am really starting to see the results not only in pounds lost but also how I feel. I have so much more energy and I am starting to be able to get up and be more active. I even plan to start walking daily again. Nutrisystem is saving my life.
Using my coping strategies really helped reduce cravings this week which made things much easier. So far I have stayed on my diet with no cheating! This is a huge accomplishment for me it’s usually around the second month that I start to lose my will power so I am really excited to be going strong. This week I am working on identifying my support system. Losing weight is so hard so having positive support and positive people around you really helps keep you focused.
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....
