Sound the trumpets, I’ve completed one week of Nutrisystem! Well, I completed six days of Nutrisystem. I had to travel for my job one day this week and things got a bit off track (that’s a gentle way of saying that I ate like a teenage boy.) Nonetheless, six days on a diet still feels pretty monumental to me.
And guess what? I lost 3 lbs! I chalk it up to the first thing I have learned about the program – it’s easy. Did you ever wish you had a personal chef? On Nutrisystem, you kinda do.
Everything is done for me. Someone has figured out the right foods to eat for weight loss, the portions, the calories. Then, they cook it, deliver it to my door, and even color code it so I quickly know which food to eat at what point of the day. The meals are even easy for travel, only a portion of them are refrigerated and some don’t even need a microwave (so yeah, no excuse for my misstep this week!)
I do have to do a few things:
• Supplement the food supplied with grocery items. Such as the pretty fruit shown above and whole grain items (smart carbs), vegetables, and healthy proteins (power fuels). I’ll get into this more in a future post.
• Drink at least 8 eight oz. glasses of water a day. They even give you a bottle; fill it and drink it twice a day and you’ve reached the goal.
• Get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day (which I’m having trouble with, so let’s talk about that in a soon-to-come post too).
Can you lose weight without Nutrisystem? Of course! Did I, ever? Nope. The ease of the program is going to make weight loss a reality for me, I can feel it. That and having to fess up here every week! Which leads me to this…
Beginning weight: 195 lbs (wow, that was HARD to admit.)
Week one loss: 3 lbs
Weight loss so far: 3 lbs
End weight: 192 lbs
I’ll leave you with a tip that makes drinking water easier, if you have trouble getting as much as you should every day. Add lemons, limes or thin cucumber slices. You’ll feel like you’re at a spa, and it’s quite tasty too. And I don’t know what it is, but it goes down so much quicker and easier if you drink it through a straw.
Anyone have a weight loss tip they’d like to share? Please do so!
