I only have one more week left in this 3 month quarter of my Nutrisystem journey. I can’t believe how quickly it goes by. So this week on my Nutrisystem journey I am focusing on looking forward to the next three months and setting goals for myself. I want to plan ahead for a successful quarter and part of that is setting goals for the future. Continue reading...
This week is all about celebrating my weight loss success. Last week I hit my goal for this quarter on Nutrisytem which was 75 pounds. I am so excited. This feeling is so worth all the hard work it takes to follow the Nutrisystem program. I feel on top of the world and super proud of myself.
I am super excited to be saying that I have met my next mini goal. When I started this quarter on Nutrisystem I set a goal to lose 75 pounds total by the end of the quarter. I not only met the goal but I still have another 3 weeks in the quarter so I will be surpassing it. It feels so great to reach goals. To me, I feel an overwhelming sense of accomplishment every time I hit one. It’s so important for me to set myself mini milestones along the way so I can celebrate my successes throughout my process and keep myself motivated. I will be celebrating sometime this week hitting my goal so make sure to check in next week to see what I do to celebrate.
I have been doing really well on my Nutrisystem journey so far. I have really enjoyed the program and I have been able to apply all the strategies to my daily life. The only thing I seem to continue to struggle with is exercise. I feel like I would see more success if I had a regular exercise schedule not to mention I would feel better and be able to do more. I recently ran across a great article on the Nutrisystem leaf that I found inspirational about My Daily 3 and I am determined to make it part of my daily routine starting this week.
Now that summer is here we seem to be easily falling into our summer routines and schedule. The problem with that is that I am also falling into my old bad habits. We always seem to stay up late and sleep in during the summer so it really throws off my Nutrisystem meal schedule. We seem to be on the go a lot and I really have to be careful of not eating out and taking foods with me. I also have noticed how much we focus on food in the summer, we have ice cream, BBQ, and family events it seems like the food never ends. So I have really been focused this week on making healthy habits and replacing old ones.
This week I am overcoming a no weight loss week on the Nutrisystem program. It was a tough pill to swallow when I stepped on the scaled and didn’t have a loss, I stayed exactly the same. So many negative thoughts swarmed me in that moment, thoughts of cheating on my diet, giving up, or having a massive cheat day were overwhelming. However, I made it through the week and I overcame, which I am so proud of myself for. I am back on track this week which is exciting and I decided to take some time to write down the things that helped me get through the week.
This week has been so hectic and stressful. It’s the end of the school year and we have all the stress of getting to all of the kids events, awards assemblies, field trips, and end of year ceremonies. Between our three children still at home I feel like I have been running non-stop this week and I have been super stressed with the busy schedule.
This week brought a follow up at the doctor’s office for me. It was so nice not having to worry when I went to the office. With continued success I am looking forward to summer and with summer comes more on the go days and travel. I have started the process of planning ahead and wanted to share some tips with my readers on staying on track with your weight loss while on the go and traveling. Continue Reading...
This has been an amazing week. I have officially hit 50 pounds which seemed impossible when I started. So I celebrated this week. I’m doing a little something different instead of doing a tips & tricks section this week you will see a weight loss wish list which is what I am using to celebrate my weight loss success. Since I marked something off my list this week I decided to share with you guys!
I have officially lost 50 pounds!!!! I can’t believe it after only 14 weeks I am down 50 pounds. I was positive when I started this but I never expected to have so much success so quickly. I still can’t believe how quickly it has come off and I can still eat foods I love.
Starting out on a new three month commitment to my health and Nutrisystem. I can’t be more in love with this program. I can eat great foods and still lose weight. I am so proud of my weight loss so far and excited to keep work on my goals. There are definitely days that I struggle with motivation. I am really working on my motivation this week and identifying the ways to keep myself on track.
I just finished up my first three month commitment to Nutrisystem. I could not be happier with my decision to get back control of my weight and life and Nutrisystem as been the perfect program for me. I have had so much success on the program including weight loss, better health, and being able to be more active. I am continuing with another three month commitment but I am excited to celebrate my progress so far.
I must be honest I have been struggling a lot this week with my motivation and attitude. I really had not struggled at all yet so this was surprising to me this week. I spent some time this weekend exploring why I was feeling so negative and recommitting to the program and my goals. I after some research and advice from friends I have come up with a list of five ways to stay motivated.
I am really proud of my progress and the hard work I have put in so far as well as my commitment to keep going. This week I am reflecting on my Nutrisystem journey, what I have learned and put together of my top five benefits of the program.
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....
