I just never stuck to it long enough to see any significant results. Best of all, not only was I able to keep up 2nd and 3rd graders, I was able to get out of bed the next morning! In December of I decided to start using Nutrisystem to lose weight. Whatever the reason, I was convinced it was what I needed. This may sound obvious, but I know a lot of folks are probably wondering if Nutrisystem actually works. Nutrisystem allows you to eat a dessert each and every day. I had a goal to lose weight.
What You Can Eat and What You Can't
I personally liked it at night. It is filling, and nighttime snacking is what always does me in. When I started wanting to eat at night, I would drink my protein shake instead. They have different flavors, so you can find one that you like.
I am a chocolate freak, so I was very happy to drink a chocolate protein shake every day! My top advice for when you start Nutrisystem is get your triggers out of your house.
I never would have been able to do this weight loss journey without the people around me. I often hear about spouses sabotaging you. Instead, my husband has been my rock. He tells me how good I look. I also have a sister in law who likes to text me encouragement. You would be amazed how much of driving force that is. If you know somebody losing weight, I highly recommend randomly texting them how good they are doing on their weight loss journey. Even though I am no longer doing Nutrisystem at this point, she is still texting me, and it gives me the motivation to keep going on this journey.
You may laugh at that list. However, I got to eat food I liked. Instead, I had to eat smaller portions of it and find ways to make it more healthy. For example, I eat fat free cheese and fat free mayo now. I pay a little extra and I get the low calorie bread.
Though I now have been making bread at home and trying to figure out how to make that a little more low calorie. I eat a chocolate chip granola bar every morning. I am not a person who has to change up what I eat. I am pretty boring like that. For lunch, I eat a lunch bar which is covered in chocolate. I work from home, so I have a lot to get done while my kids are in school. I like foods I can eat on the go. Those you just microwave for 1 minute and then eat.
Quick and easy, just the way I like it. Of everything, those have to be my favorite food. For dinner, I had my choice of so many things. I could have my Nutrisystem meal match what I made everybody else in my house to eat. Some nights that made a world of difference. I often times had pizza, ravioli, hamburgers, etc. My favorite so-called junk foods that I could eat for dinner whenever I wanted was heaven.
Now, I had my pick of so many chocolate things: Being able to eat so many chocolate things allowed this to not feel like a diet. Weight loss is a marathon not a sprint.
That statement is the hardest lesson I had to learn in this journey. I lost 76 lbs. I am currently the weight I was in college. I am pre-kids and pre-wedding. The hardest thing to wrap your head around is that 1 — 2 lbs. In a world where ads are constantly bombarding you that you can lose 30 lbs in a week, it is often times hard to remember that 1 — 2 lbs is really what you are shooting for.
Until the end of my weight loss journey, I consistently lost something every week. Since weight loss is marathon, if you have a bad day or even week, you just get back on that horse.
You are in this for the long haul. What has this weight loss netted me? In jeans, I went from a 24W to a In shirts, I went from a 2x-3x, to a M. I literally had to empty my closet and buy all new clothes. I do have a hard time buying smaller clothes, because I think everything should be baggy. However, with the help of friends and family, I am learning how to dress this much thinner body, so that is shows off all of my hard work.
When I look in the mirror, I often times still see the heavier me. I luck out that I see the thinner me when I see pictures of myself though I still see some of the fat I need to still lose. I am in the process of retraining my brain, so I see what the world does.
I look at a picture of myself that I think I look thin in and remind myself every single day that is me. Remember that portion control thing I mentioned earlier?
