What a month!! I’m loving Nutrisystem and all the amazing things that are coming because of my weight loss goals. So it’s been 4 weeks that I have been working my plan. Mind you, I’ve been busy so I haven’t had a chance to add in exercise but I have been journaling EVERYTHING I eat and using my fit bit to make sure I am burning 1,000 or more calories a day than I am consuming. I read somewhere that you need to burn at least 1,000 calories more than you take in if you want to lose a pound or more a week. So that’s been my focus. And you know what? It’s paid off! I’m down 11 lbs and over 8 inches! And you know where those inches have come from?? Mostly my waist line! I lost 7 inches just in my waist, 1/2 inch in my neck and an inch in my thighs. That’s a big difference!
Besides journaling what I eat I have been very diligent about getting in my 64 ounces of water. And after a month of drinking that much water, I can tell a difference in my skin! I used to have fairly bad acne on my neck, jawline and mouth area. Not anymore! It’s barely noticeable and I only have a few issue areas now. I’m loving having clearer skin and hoping that by next month I’ll have a clear complexion. It stinks being an adult and having acne!
I’m really happy I’ve made this choice to lose the weight. In just a few months, Peyton and I’ll be heading off to Universal Studios and spending a day at Volcano Bay. When I made the reservations I dreaded the thought of having to put on a swimsuit and spend a day at the water park. But I was willing to suck it up for her. Now, I’m actually feeling pretty darn good about it. I know I’ll be smaller by the time we go which will give me more confidence. And now I am looking forward to splashing around the water park with her.
I honestly feel that you must in the right frame of mind to conquer weight loss. Anyone can say they want to lose the weight but to actually do it takes commitment. Nutrisystem is there to help you keep your commitment to yourself. They make it easy to stay on plan. There are days I am on the go for 10 plus hour but Nutrisystem has me covered with on the go meal options and snack ideas that are perfect for on the go. And they give you a planner that is full of restaurants and suggestions of what to eat so you can stay on plan. I keep that planner with me and I used it for the first time this week.
Yes, you can eat out while on Nutrisystem! We had an office luncheon catered by Chipotle and I took out my little Nutrisystem planner and flipped it open the Chipolte page. I looked at the choices they provided me and I ordered a steak salad with fresh tomatoes, fajita veggies, and the green salsa. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. After all, I’m used to ordering a burrito bowl with rice, beans, fajita mix, tomatoes, corn, sour cream, cheese, and guac. This was a huge difference. But you know what? It was really good! And I was full. Two things I had not expected.
If you are serious about losing weight and looking for a program that will help keep you on track while giving you the liberty to live life to the fullest then check out Nutrisystem. I have not felt held back at all. I have not felt like I’m missing out on life. I am doing everything I did before I started the plan and living the same crazy life. I’m just making better choices now.
