I am blown away I read every single comment as they brighten my day. Sometimes I will reply back to them here, so be sure to check back later. Etsy Pinterest Bloglovin Twitter. I am not being paid by Nutrisystem. Each post is my honest opinion and results vary among different people. Nutrisystem Challenge- The Beginning.
They hurt a lot therefore making it uncomfortable for me to enjoy an afternoon walk. I also started suffering from acid reflux. Sleeping at night was uncomfortable due to the discomfort and chest pains. I even noticed poor circulation in my arms and legs. My self-esteem became low and had a bad attitude that I would never be small again. I was miserable most of the time, except when I was eating of course.
I knew I needed to go on a diet. As diabetes runs in my family, I knew I was setting myself up for that path. As a matter of fact, I would start some kind of diet every Monday.
I tried several different diets on my own. I cut out carbs, sweets, and calorie intakes. Other diets were boring and felt like a waste of time since I never felt any changes.
I would often kid around with my husband by telling him that he was actually only married to half of me. I finally decided to take control and do something about my weight. It was January 5, I mentioned to my husband that I was going to try Nutrisystem. I was spectacle since no other diets seem to work. I headed to my local Walmart and purchased a Nutrisystem five day weight loss kit which included fifteen entrees and five desserts.
I was a bit embarrassed as I walked through the store carrying a box of Nutrisystem. I felt like people were staring as I left the store. He believed me this time and even made a choice to diet with me. He wanted to be supportive. One way was by not having tempting foods in the house. This was a big plus. No temptations, no regrets while gritting my teeth as we passed by the doughnut shop. When I got home and opened my Nutrisystem box, there were a few guidelines to follow to achieve my goal.
Wait, do I have a goal? I never really thought about setting a goal, I just wanted to lose weight. The first morning I grabbed my cup of coffee and sat down to a tiny little Nutrisystem muffin and a glass of fusion energy juice. I was hungry all day. Nutrisystem labels snacks as either Power Fuels or Smart Carbs. The kit included a list of this type of foods and servings allowed for each.
The truth is, I was eating the wrong things to achieve any positive results. I added healthy snacks between my meals such as fresh avocado, yogurt and mixed nuts. The days got easier. By the third day of sticking to the plan which was a big accomplishment for me , I was already feeling more energy and less bloating.
This motivated me to do another week. Weeks went on and I continued following the Nutrisystem diet. So, how long does Nutrisystem take to work?
It works within the first few days. Each day I made sure to drink at least 64 oz of water and light exercise, which usually included twenty minutes of hula hooping. With the help of my Fitbit, I made a goal to get in at least steps in per day. I used the MyfitnessPal app to keep a log of my daily food and calorie intake. Here I was able to make other friends from a Nutrisystem support group who were reaching for the same goals. The weekends were challenging as we chose to go out to our favorite restaurants.
I ordered off the Lite menu or A La Carte. The hardest part was avoiding the chips and dip at the Mexican restaurant. This usually resulted in me actually sitting on my hands. Yes the struggle was real here. The second week was easier. I finally set a goal to lose 30 lbs. I really wanted to get into a new Easter outfit.
I was still buying Nutrisystem by the week from Walmart. Does Nutrisystem from Walmart or Costco work? It sure did for me. I looked forward to my next meal. I got hungry between meals sometimes. This is when I would snack on foods such as almonds, kale chips or nonfat yogurts. I purchased some Nutrisystem shakes to use between meals also. They are delicious and will knock out the hungry feelings or cravings. I only lost 2 lbs the second week but it was still a loss. By the third week, I noticed my health was improving.
I no longer suffered from heartburn and acid reflux. I felt good and best of all I was losing weight. By now, I knew this was the diet for me and was ready to keep going. I decided to give in and purchase through Nutrisystem. While I was online ordering I chatted with a representative about my plan options and payment concerns.
She was very informative as she helped me make my first purchase. Once I became a member, there were tools on the website that helped me achieve my goal. I entered my height and weight, how many pounds I wanted to lose and it set a calorie goal for me.
I needed calories a day to achieve my desired weight loss goal of 30 lbs. I was able to choose days worth of food from the menu. A couple days later a large box showed up at my door. I stocked my pantry and the journey continued. After one month the whole diet thing was easier as I was no longer craving foods like before. The cravings were not completely gone but walking away from a piece of cake or pizza was no longer a challenge.
I had my own Nutrisystem goodies such as chocolate, pizza, potatoes, muffins and more. I stepped on the scales and smiled as I had lost a total of 11 lbs in one month. This earned me a Nutribear. Nutrisystem will award a new bear for every 10 lbs. New eating habits were not my only struggle. To accomplish success, this required me to give up food and wine outings with friends.
I turned down invites as this would lead to binge eating and they would not understand. One day while exercising and listening to music, I began to get emotional and felt alone. I felt like everyone had abandoned me. I was even snubbed by some of my overweight friends and family. Some of the people I work with picked on me. I would just toss it in the trash and carry on with my day. They can be judgmental as well. Calling someone too skinny can be just as painful as calling someone fat. However, my husband and daughter were my biggest fans on this journey.
My husband continued complementing me on how good I look and how proud he is of me. He never complained that we did not go out to eat as much as we used to or that I no longer cooked meals. He pushed me to exercise and eat healthy.
It was definitely an emotional rollercoaster at times. At the same time, reading other people's testimonies and reviews of the Nutrisystem diet was encouraging and inspiring, too. My size twelves were getting too big.
