Today is Day 8 of my Nutrisystem journey – meaning I have completed a full week of my new way of eating! First of all, I must mention that using Nutrisystem has been much easier than I expected before I started. I went into the change a bit worried that I would crave my old comfort foods, not like the foods I received, or struggle with getting enough water every day.
However, all of my fears were dismissed after the first few days. Most of the foods I have tried this week have been very good. A couple were mediocre, to be honest, but they were still edible so I got them down!
I do have a few favorites after this week, such as the Banana Nut Muffin for breakfast, Homestyle Cheesy Potatoes for lunch, Hearty Beef Stew for dinner, and Chocolate Sandwich Cookies for dessert (No lie, these taste just like Oreos!).
I also haven’t had much trouble with cravings. I think it’s because the foods I can eat now are so much like what I used to eat. Instead of completely transforming my diet, I am now simply substituting the old, unhealthy stuff with better choices. I did have one craving for Cheez-Its on Friday evening, but that’s because we still had some in the house. They are gone now, so I think I’ll be good!
My water intake hasn’t been an issue either. Nutrisystem supplied me with a 32-ounce water bottle for the program, which I need to drink two of each day. I fill it up before bed each night so the water is good and cold for the following day. I typically refill it after lunch, and have it gone by bedtime…well, usually by the time I exercise after dinner. I’ve been able to get 9-10 glasses (72 to 80 ounces) most days!
My Nutrisystem Results
Now, for my results for Week 1 on Nutrisystem. Last week, I mentioned that I was starting at 243 lbs. (ugh, I still hate writing that). Well, this week, the scale said…
That’s a 3lb loss!!
I am going to keep a running total so that I can see my weekly progress as my journey continues.
Week 1 = -3.0
Total Loss = -3.0
