Week 2-Yay! Lost some weight on Nutrisystem…#nsnation

For those of you not following, I have just completed my first week of Nutrisystem. And, yes I lost weight!

 

As I enter week #3 on Nutrisystem I am full of excitement because I am seeing a transformation in my body. My body is getting adjusted to the smaller portions and variety of foods that are all part of a proven system. I have to be honest in saying that I didn’t think that I would say much of a change the first month. I understand that my body went through a small detox from snacks and sweets, but it has totally been worth it. This week I was determined to eat more of the “free” items that include salad, carrots, celery, and spinach.  I also treated myself to a cup of popcorn a few nights since I saved my extras from the day.

Over the weekend, I was away on business and thought this was the big test. I mean, at home, I know that it’s hard not to eat from my kids’ plates, but I was able to do it.  Now, on the road with people looking at me like I am nuts pulling out my “lunch” bar while everyone else is eating real food,  I didn’t care at all.  I was able to stick to the program and when I first got to the hotel I immediately called for a microwave.  The following morning I made my protein shake and ate my breakfast bar then for lunch I was able to take the grilled chicken from a sandwich and place it on a salad. I found it helpful to have the meal replacement bars and quick snacks on hand so I wasn’t tempted to break from the system.  The best part was before leaving the hotel the front desk if I could use their microwave to heat up my Nutrisystem meal. They had no problem with it but gave me a key for the penthouse lounge. As I walked in, totally out of place, and asked if I could use the microwave to heat up my pizza, people just starred.  Then to top things off, the pizza had to be assembled (why did I bring pizza with me for dinner??)

In the end, I knew that I shouldn’t be embarrassed but it was just one of those moments. The pizza was delicious and I ate it while waiting for my car.  If I hadn’t taken the pizza with me, I know that my huger would have driven me right towards Pizza Hut :)
