*I am a Nutrisystem Blogger. I have received food free of charge as part of this role.
I can hardly believe I’ve been on Nutrisystem for 4 weeks! I am also VERY impressed that I have lost 11 pounds! I will try to get a pic up this week.
Before Nutrisystem I tried all sorts of fad diets. They worked for like a day or week then I put the weight right back on and usually more. Don’t get me wrong. I have had some mini crises over the past 4 weeks. I was totally craving wings. I mean I was ready to drive half an hour over to a bigger city that had a wings place. What did I do? I dreamt about the wings, drank some crystal light, dreamt some more and then chewed on carrot sticks. I eventually got over it and I’m really glad I did not cave in. My goal this next month is to find and learn recipes that will help me make healthier versions of the food I crave.
Carrots have been a huge “saving” food for me. I don’t buy them where I have to peel them and cut them up. I know myself. When I feel like I’m “starving” or craving something that’s really bad for me it has been so easy to reach in the fridge and grab some carrots to chew on. I usually realize that I’m not as hungry (or starving) as I thought I was and the carrots will take away that craving.
I’m also learning that a lot of “hunger” is my body telling me I’m dehydrated. I’ve been drinking a ton of water. For those of you that think water is boring or need something flavored, add a crystal light packet. I keep a few flavors in my pantry.
If you are looking for an instant and fast weight loss program, this is not for you.
If you’re looking for consistent loss and learning a healthy lifestyle that will help you keep the weight loss off, you should give Nutrisystem a try!
