Nutrisystem Week 17 Update #NSNation

Since we rang in 2013, I think we have been nothing but busy! Even with the rushing around, organizing the house, and getting Sawyer into a new big boy bed, this week was a good one for my Nutrisystem journey! Though we were busy, I managed three days on the treadmill, walking 2 miles each time! I have begun putting my iPad on the treadmill's ledge (just above the info screen), so I can read or … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 16: The Good and The Bad #NSNation

Nutrisystem's French Toast with Fruit on Top

This week of my Nutrisystem journey, I made a new discovery. Vacation is MUCH harder than the holidays when it comes to staying on track with your weight loss efforts. So many restaurants, many of them new and that we hadn't tried before. I took plenty of my foods with me, yet we always had the urge to eat out...and when I did, I usually didn't make the best decisions. :( I allowed myself a … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 15: Moving Forward #NSNation

The holidays have been one big roller coaster for my Nutrisystem journey. I've been gaining, losing, and gaining a little more. It's frustrating, because I tried hard not to indulge at the four family dinners we've had this month (two just this week!). However, the holidays are behind us now, so I am looking forward to the new year and becoming a healthier version of myself! This week, I … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 14 – Quick Update #NSNation

I have to make this update a bit short, as I told my husband that after yesterday, I wouldn't be blogging again until after Christmas. BUT - I had to get this week's Nutrisystem journey post out, because it's a good one! This week, the scale delivered me a slightly early Christmas present - a lower number than I've seen the past two weeks! I had a loss of 1.4 pounds, bringing my total to 19 … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 13 – Coming Down to the Wire! #NSNation

This week was a neutral week for my Nutrisystem journey. It wasn't too bad yet it wasn't that good either. I ate well most days, with the exception of yesterday when we had our family holiday dinner with James' family. It's so hard to eat light when there are lots of yummy foods all over the table! I still have not gotten into a normal exercise routine. I think this is really harming my weight … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 12: Setting Goals for the New Year! #NSNation

Set Goals chalkboard image

With the remainder of the year flying by, it seems like I'm writing a Nutrisystem post every other day! This week, I had a family dinner to attend, so I made sure to eat good the rest of the week. I knew I'd want to splurge a little on my family's home cooking, so I planned accordingly. I've also been thinking about the goals I want to reach in 2013. New Year's is a time when many people set … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 11: Accountability is Important! #NSNation

This week, I fell off the Nutrisystem wagon a little bit. I cannot believe I did so well during the week of Thanksgiving and then bombed the following week! I think I've gotten to a plateau with my eating where I need to start exercising again in order to continue my weight loss. I haven't exercised much since my gallbladder surgery because I've been too scared of injuring myself while my … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 10: Success During the Holidays! #NSNation


This week, I was a bit worried about how well I would do with my Nutrisystem journey. With Thanksgiving, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to control my eating. Not only that, but I went out for Black Friday shopping...and then again with my mom, sister, and a friend on Saturday for more shopping an hour away! With all the time spent away from home the past few days (which fell right before … [Read more...]

Nutrisystem Week 9: Getting Back on Track! #NSNation

I'm happy to announce that my Nutrisystem journey has resumed! After all of my gallbladder issues, I had the surgery for removal on November 8. My doctor said I'd be fine to return to my normal eating habits following the surgery, but I stayed on the bland diet for most of the couple days after the surgery. I slowly made the change back to regular foods, just to be sure my digestive system … [Read more...]
