I’ve been really slacking with my weight loss lately, in fact I’ve even gained a few pounds back from what I’ve lost. I’ve still been working out, it’s the eating that’s been getting to me this time. You can work out as much as you want, but if you’re eating habits aren’t following the healthy routine you’re trying to set for yourself, it’s just not going to work.
So, I needed some help…. I’ve started Nutrisystem!
From the website:
Here at Nutrisystem, our mission is to provide a weight loss program based on quality foods and a nutritionally balanced meal plan; individualized counseling is the core of our commitment that customers always have the privacy, support and knowledge needed to reach their goal weight.
I’m hoping this gives me the kick start that I need. Logging my food, planning my meals and having the majority of my meals already prepared for me in the correct portion size. It can’t do anything but help, right?
On Nutrisystem you don’t just eat their food solely, I also have to buy grocery staples to add to my meals like protein, veggies, fruit and fat. My pantry stables arrived yesterday which included breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts, all color coded on the package so you know which is which. As you can see, I had to clear out my pantry to make room for my nutrisystem stash. I’m still waiting on the delivery of my frozen foods which should be any day now.
So I start today. This was my breakfast…..
8oz of fat free milk, and an Apple Strudel Scone which was actually very good! I’ll also have a morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner and then dessert. A hard thing for me will be keeping up with my water intake. Thankfully Nutrisystem sent me a water bottle as well, which for whatever reason I’ll see helping me as it tells me right on the bottle I need to drink at least 2 of them a day!
I already go to the gym about 3x a week, but I’m going to step it up at home on the days that I don’t go, to make sure that I’m pushing myself even more than usual. I’m starting out on Nutrisystem at 225 lbs (I can’t believe I just wrote that on my blog). My overall goal right now is to reach 145 which is 5lbs less than I was on my wedding day 9 years ago.

I’m hoping there will be a big change within the next 4 months! I also promise to do a better before picture when I get the chance as well.
What I also love about Nutrisystem, is that I have access to a community! A message board of other Nutrisystem members online, I also have a phone number to call when I need the extra help, or have questions. Nutrisystem also has apps for your phone (iPhone, Android, Blackberry) so I can keep track even when I don’t have my computer or journal by my side.
I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me I might feel like I’ll need home health care agencies it’s so much work, and I’m going to take you ALL on the journey with me as I try out the Women’s Nutrisystem D Select Program, which is for type 2 diabetics who want to lose weight for the next 4 months!
