Nutrisystem Weight Loss Adventure – Week 5 Results

Weight Loss results after 5 weeks with Nutrisystem

Week 5 on Nutrisystem – Results are Rockin’!

Over the course of the first month on the Nutrisystem program, I was really proud to meet my goal of losing at least a pound a week. So this month, I wanted to try to double that – And so far, so good!!! I was SUPER excited to step on the scale on Sunday for my weekly weigh-in, and see that I had lost almost 2.5 pounds over the week. I seriously can’t believe it – I have tried for over a year to get this baby weight off, and couldn’t get that scale to budget one bit. This is rockin’ – and I couldn’t be happier!

Why I love Nutrisystem…

The Nutrisystem plan includes a ton of variety in the foods that you get to choose from each day, and you even get to add in your own snacks – which means that it’s a perfect fit for anyone who needs help losing weight. Here are a few of the reasons why it works so perfectly for me –

  1. I’m a busy mom. I don’t have time to carefully measure portions and count up all of the calories in the ingredients that I cook with. Some days I barely have time TO eat, let alone add in a bunch of extra steps. With Nutrisystem, it’s so simple to eat right – I just grab something marked lunch, add in a salad or string cheese, and I can eat and enjoy, knowing that my meals are balanced and healthy.
  2. The foods are great. I really expected that the foods wouldn’t be very good. So many “diet” foods have that yucky artificial type of taste, or worse – have no taste at all! But on Nutrisystem, I get to enjoy awesome dinners like Citrus Barbeque Glazed Pork, healthy Chicken Enchiladas, or the deliciously spicy Adobo Rubbed Pork. So good!
  3. There are tons of shelf-stable options. This is really great for me – I can throw a meal bar in my purse to eat if I know I’ll be out running errands, or bring along a chocolate muffin for morning playdates. Next week I’m headed on a business trip to Fort Worth, Texas, and will be able to pack a few of these options in my bag, to help me stay on track while away from home.

There are so many great features about this program – it is seriously so easy to follow.

Busy moms need flexibility, and Nutrisystem provides that

It’s so easy to make Nutrisystem a part of your daily routines – there are tons of delicious food choices, you get to add in great fruits, veggies, and healthy snacks, and everything is in perfect portion sizes, making it easy as can be to stay on track. Add in the totally helpful online tools and amazing support community – and you have everything you need to start losing weight too!

Nutrisystem: Wanna See My One-Month Weight-Loss Results?

nutrisystem week 4 results

One Month of Nutrisystem = 5 Pounds Lost!

Dang…. I absolutely HATE seeing myself on a scale – and seeing SUCH a high numbers! Never in my life would I have imagined that I’d weigh this much… But thankfully, I have the support system at Nutrisystem to keep me on track, and keep me motivated towards getting back to a number on the scale that I can be proud to share here with you guys.

My Goals for Nutrisystem

When I first was getting started with Nutrisystem, I took a full set of measurements, from thighs and hips to arms and chest, so that I could track my progress. The number on the scale is important – but my shape is what matters more, since it’s what determines whether I’ll get my booty back into those pre-baby jeans or not. Nutrisystem gives you a great online support system, filled with awesome tracking tools – so that’s where I added in my measurements and starting weight. I wanted to lose at least a pound or two per week, and hopefully see a measurable difference in my curves after the first month….

I Met all of my Weight Loss goals!

Woooo! While I would’ve loved to see a little more weight loss, I’m very happy with 5 pounds in 4 weeks. As long as I keep losing at least a pound a week, I’ll feel like I’m making progress. And – I lost about a half-inch on almost ALL of my measurements – waist, hips, chest, arms, and thighs. That was pretty exciting to see! I’ve been getting more activity in my day, but haven’t been doing any major exercise yet – so these results make me really happy.

What’s Next for me and Nutrisystem

This month, I’d love to really push myself harder to exercise, and lose 10 pounds. I admit to cheating a couple of times last month – and still lost 5 pounds. So, if I can avoid those things that test my willpower – {lunches out with friends, taco night with the kids} – for a few weeks, I know I can do it.

On a weight loss journey too? Check out my Weight Loss Board on Pinterest – It’s super funny, super motivating, and filled with super helpful stuff!

Nutrisystem Week 3 – Getting Closer! #NSNation

nutrisystem, nsnation

“If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.” – Jack Dixon

This quote is posted on my fridge. It’s to remind me NOT to think too much about results yet. Losing weight can be so difficult – and when I think about trying to lose 40-50 pounds – Holy heck, that feels so overwhelming! But, I try to remember – every goal is reached in small steps. So each day I focus on making good choices, and changing more of my bad habits. And I am SO proud of myself already, because I’ve made some awesome changes!

How About Results??

I know, I know – What you guys all really want to know is, “How much have you lost so far??!!” I know this, because it’s what my friends and family keep asking too. But, I’m sorry to disappoint you – I don’t have a number to give you yet. I did weigh myself when I started – But our old scale is really unreliable. After a ton of research online, and asking friends for suggestions – I just ordered the EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale. It definitely seems like the best one in my price range. That way, I’ll be able to truly track my progress. But – here’s the good news… Our old unreliable scale weighs me differently 4 times in a row. BUT – it’s now weighing me at lower numbers than I’ve ever gotten before. That’s VERY encouraging and motivating!

Almost the One-Month Mark

Next Sunday will mark my one-month mark on the Nutrisystem program. So, this weekend I’ll have my new scale, to finally get firm numbers of what I truly weigh. AND – I’m going to retake all of my measurements. Since I took a very full set of body measurements before I started, and logged them all in my personal Nutrisystem online journal system – I am incredibly excited to see what kind of results I’ve gotten!! Watch for the big reveal this Sunday night….

Until then, remember…. “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.” – Jim Rohn

The BEST Weight Loss System for Busy Moms – #NSNation

Ok – You’ve heard me talking about it on social media for a few weeks now – I have joined the Nutrisystem Nation! I am incredibly excited to finally have an amazing system and support to get this baby weight off. {Baby weight? That was so 6 months ago. This is TODDLER weight now. Ugh.} I set up my account a few weeks ago, logged my weight and measurements, and then watched as my shipments of new, healthy meals showed up, delivered conveniently to my doorstep. I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this program!

#NSNation, Nutrisystem, Weight Loss

“A strong positive attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.” – Patricia Neal

The first shipment from Nutrisystem comes with all the written materials and tracking guides that you need to get you started on the right track – and help you along the way. There is a guide book with loads of great information and tips – and my favorite part, the Daily Planner, which is where you log your meals each day. Just the process of writing down everything that you eat makes you SO much more aware of your habits.

Nutrisystem, Weight Loss, #NSNation, Frozen Weight Loss Foods

“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.” – William James

As you can see – You get a huge amount of amazing foods as part of the system! This is my frozen foods shipment for the month – it includes the awesome new Chef’s Table Entree’s for dinner, great breakfast and lunch options – and even dessert! Yep, when you’re on the Nutrisystem program you get to enjoy a great dessert every single night – things like a fudge brownie or ice cream cups. {I have a sweet tooth, so this addition means it’s easy for me to stay on track. Love it!}

Protein Shakes, Weight loss shakes, #NSNation

“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.” – Dennis P. Kimbro

Also included in the plan is a huge assortment of shelf stable foods – things like soups, snack bars, and yummy breakfast choices like chocolate chip scones. Each morning you add a protein shake to your breakfast choice, to keep you filling full all morning. I’d tried weight loss shakes years ago – but I hated that grittiness, the way they never really blended smoothly. Well, Nutrisystem fixes that with their totally cool shaker gadget – that little ball is just like a whisk. You add it in with water, the shake mix powder, and some ice cubes – and it seriously blends it so smooth. Tastes just like a really thick an creamy chocolate milk, I swear. My nephews tried it, and they say it’s no fair that I get to drink them all. It’s that good.

fresh fruit, bananas, weight loss

“One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.” – John Wanamaker

Nutrisystem supplies almost everything you need for success – The foods, the guide and tracking planner, and an uh-MAY-zing online support system. But there are a few pieces of the plan that you have to add in:

  1. Fresh Foods: Things like fruit and vegetables, low or non-fat dairy products, and smart carbs like whole grain. You can also add healthy beverages like tea, and of course loads of water!
  2. Activity: You can take an assessment in your account profile on Nutrisystem, and give yourself a goal of at least 10 minutes of moderate activity, 3 times per day. This is easier than you think – vacuum the house quickly for 10 minutes in the morning. Take an afternoon walk around the neighborhood. And then play a couple of games of soccer in the yard with the kids again in the evening. Easy peasy.
  3. A Great Attitude: Yep, this will make all the difference – and it’s totally in your control. “Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.” Doug Firebaugh.

Every week I will be sharing my progress with you – to give you information on how the process works, to share my struggles and successes, and answer any questions you have. Since I didn’t get a chance to introduce you guys to the program last week like planned – {remember that nasty computer crash I had?} – This week I’ll have two posts. Tomorrow is the Moment of Truth….

What is the Moment of Truth??

Tomorrow I will let you guys know more about my weight loss goals… And share a picture of me on the scale, so you can see my starting weight. GAAAAHHH!! My weight? On the internet?? But I think that it’s the BEST way to keep me honest, motivated, and accountable. So – be nice in your comments tomorrow when I post it :) Stay tuned….
