Five weeks in and still going strong! Truthfully, I am loving the ease of this program. I don’t have to do anything special and I just keep losing weight and even better? I feel GREAT! I have energy, I am sleeping better and my clothes fit better. What isn’t to like?
I think one of the biggest misconceptions about Nutrisystem is that people think that I ONLY eat Nutrisystem food and that just isn’t the case. Every day I get to eat a NS breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. In addition to them I get to have Power Fuels and Smart Carbs and they are all items that I buy at the store. For example, I often eat greek yogurt, I have salads daily, string cheese, fruits and veggies. One of my favorite snacks is I cut up a whole wheat tortilla, bake it in the oven for a few minutes and then eat it with salsa…yum! So good!
This week I started back at the gym. I was a little concerned my workouts would cause me to require more food intake, in particular more protein.
So far the Nurtisystem meals have been more than filling and I am not going hungry. I think the key is to organize your meals and meal time.
I have a breakfast meal before I leave for the gym. I like the Breakfast Burritos best. After I work out, I have a protein shake and a piece of fruit – either an apple or banana.
The rest of the day is the usual plan. I try to keep one of my desserts for later in the day or early evening in case I get hungry.
Week 5 Results:
Megan– 3.7 lbs (17.3 lbs lost since starting the program)
Vince– .5 lbs (12.5 lbs lost since starting the program)
Combined Total Weight Loss– 29.8 lbs lost overall
Note: Nutrisystem has kicked off a new program called Small Win Wednesday! Every Wednesday on Facebook, they will be celebrating those victories in your weight loss journey that have nothing to do with the scale. Anything from finally fitting into your favorite pair of jeans to mastering a new healthy recipe is a win worth celebrating.
