Nutrisystem Week 16 Update

Sorry I am a day late posting this everyone. Yesterday I was spending some quality time with my family and remembering all the fallen heroes that have made it possible for me and my family to live free.

Part of the reason I felt especially free this year is because I have freed myself from over 30 pounds of unwanted weight that has been holding me captive for far too long. Of course I have not done it alone, in fact, Nutrisystem is the only way I could have ever done it.

Everything about Nutrisystem is wonderful. It is so fool proof, the food tastes amazing, and the company really cares about you and wants you to succeed. That caring is really that something extra that makes this program unbeatable.

One of the ways they show their support and caring is by rewarding your weight loss with adorable Nutribears.

I just received my 30 Pound Nutribear along with my monthly shipment, and it is so cute.

(Please excuse my mom-like appearance)

I love this bear so much. Even more than the other ones. Of course since it is 30 pounds which is a bigger accomplishment, but also because it is such a lovely shade of clue. Blue is my favorite color. The pride of earning a new bear is great, but the anticipation of seeing what color the next one will be is just as exciting.

The encouragement really makes you want to keep going, but the program is so easy, and it works so well, even if not for that, the program would still be incredible. At first, what really made me stick with Nutrisystem, was the fast results.

The food is really good, but at  first, that took a little adjusting to since my cravings were out of control. Knowing it worked made my stay on track, and it gets easier every week, to the point where I never even have to think about cheating. I know I won't, nor do I need to.

I get to eat a lot too, so that is perfect. I cannot deal with being hungry. I get breakfast with a protein shake, a morning snack, lunch plus a smart carb, an afternoon snack, dinner plus a smart carb AND dessert. PLUS I get unlimited veggies and daily extras(like dressing and such).

There is so much variety, so I never get bored. It makes it so easy for me to coordinate my meals to what I cook for my husband.

A prime example of that is last night. We had a BBQ for Memorial Day, and grilled some burgers. Burgers are one of my biggest weaknesses, especially when I have to smell them cooking on the grill.

Did I get the urge to cheat. Not really. I knew I would love to eat one of the burgers, but I also knew it was not worth the high fat and calories. Plus, I knew that Nutrisystem has burgers and they are delish.

So I made myself a Hickory Smoke Flavored Beef Patty.

A small whole grain roll is recommended, but I did not have one, so I used Italian bread(white). That is what I usually use since we tend to have it on hand.

I used mustard(as one of my extras) on the burger, and I also added 3 pickle spears on the side. It was a very good meal and left me feeling satisfied.

In my opinion, this is less of a diet and more of just a new lifestyle. I am so glad I did this for myself. Best choice I ever made(aside from getting married and having kids).

This week I lost another...
2.8 pounds and 1 1/4 inch!

My 16 week total is a whopping...

37 pounds and 17 inches!

I can already picture myself holding that 40 pound Nutribear, and I'm not stopping there. I love Nutrisystem.
