So here I am at the end of Week 7 with Nutrisystem on the Women’s Select Success Plan. If you recall, I had an incredibly stressful week that left me with no weight loss. This was quite a disappointment and I had high hopes for this week. I’m inching closer and closer to the two month mark. In the first month I lost over 9 lbs and was hoping to repeat that number or more.
I’m a day late on this post due to Memorial Day. So yesterday morning when I weighed myself, I was a little more than nervous. I didn’t want to see zero weight loss again, but I had another stressful work week. However, I did loose one pound. While I wish it was more, I’ll take a loss over a gain or nothing any day.
Week 2 – 1 lb.
Week 5 – 2 lbs.
Week 7 – 1 lb.
This week I focused on my activity, making sure I got in the movement I need to. We went for lots of long walks and boy that sun was hot! I was hoping I sweated a good 5 lbs, but alas that was not the case. Maybe amping up my workouts in this summer heat will help shed the pounds a little faster?
One exciting thing that happened this week was that I received my first Nutrisystem Bear! For every 10 lbs you loose, Nutrisystem will send you a “Beanie Baby” type bear! My son just loved him. I placed him on one of the steps going up our loft. My hope is to add a few more bears to accompany him!
Diet wise, I pretty much stuck to my usual favorites. Coffee or chocolate shake with my breakfast, then usually a soup or rice for lunch. Now one new lunch item I tried was the mach potatoes! They are easily my new favorite. YUM! Now I’m usually not a fan of instant taters. I’ve always opted for the long way of peeling, boiling, and then hand smashing the potatoes to get a nice mash. However, these ones were so delicious. They have a light mix of cheese added and a hint of broccoli too. I’m definitely going to have a order a few on my next shipment. Best part? They are actually pretty filling!
So for Week 8, it is going to be a challenge. I have company coming into town, and boy do they like to go out for some dining and drinking. Once again, my diet will be put to the test. When out I’ll have to make smart decisions and limit myself on anything that could sabotage my Nutrisystem plan. Wish me luck!
