NutriSystem Day 28: Mission Accomplished

I am always going to have to exercise and watch what I eat but now I know how to do it. I know that if I do find myself gaining weight I can lose it again. I am going to be very attentive to my body and keep watching myself to try and never be overweight again. I fluctuate between and pounds lost now. I went from weighing in at pounds to weighing somewhere around I have been as low as but it seems to stay right around I have been maintaining for nearly a year.

It took me right at a year to reach my goal. I lost pounds a week each week the whole time I was following the plan. I am still amazed at how far I have come. When I fold my clothes I have a hard time believing how small my clothes are now. I wear a Medium size shirt and in pants. I have some small dresses and shorts. I can wear clothes for nearly any store. I used to be limited in where I could shop, but not anymore.

While I was losing weight my sister also joined Nutrisystem. She lost over 70 pounds and really enjoyed the program as well. She lost her weight a lot quicker than I did. She was inspired to join because she saw me losing weight. My sister is a little older than me and after having two children she felt as though she would never get the baby weight off.

Nutrisystem made it possible for her to get the baby weight off. Nutrisystem provides counselors to help you with your plan. You can call and talk to them when you hit a plateau. You can also use the forums on the Nutrisystem website to connect with other people using the program.

With Nutrisystem you will never feel as though you are doing this on your own. You have a whole support system. They have been around over 40 years and they are here to stay because they really do know what they are doing. Nutrisystem works and they provide a sure fire way to get the weight off and keep it off.

Nutrisystem is different than the other programs out there before they make it simple. You just follow their plan and eat their food along with some additional add-ins that you purchase at the grocery store and watch the weight come flying off. On Nutrisystem you are eating several times a day. Nutrisystem allows you to eat a dessert each and every day. The desserts are really good too. I love the ice cream sandwiches. They are absolutely my favorite.

I also enjoy the cookies. While on the Nutrisystem program I received the shelf stable foods and the fresh frozen foods too. I love the fresh frozen foods but I also enjoy the shelf stable foods. There is not a breakfast or dessert that I did not enjoy.

I could eat any of the shelf stable and frozen desserts and breakfasts. They are all delicious. My favorite breakfasts are the turkey and egg breakfast sandwich, the breakfast burrito, the muffins, and the peanut butter granola bar. I enjoyed having the burrito for lunch and the tuna salad was another favorite of mine. When you eat the tuna salad you get to put it on sandwich thin bread. I always eat a big green salad with some Nutrisystem approved dressing with my lunch. The dinners were a little trickier for me to find the ones that I liked.

I love the hamburger, the chicken, the pizzas and the spaghetti. I sauté some veggies and add them to the dinner entrée and that makes them delicious. So a typical day on Nutrisystem would go like this. I get up and exercise for 30 minutes to an hour.

I drink coffee and water after my workout to get my body moving. Then after a shower I get ready for work and when I get to work I have breakfast. Breakfast is a protein shake and a breakfast entrée. Most mornings I would have a muffin with a protein shake.

Then mid-morning I would have what they call a power fuel and a smart carb, which is some greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fresh fruit. Next I would have my lunch in a few hours. For lunch I would have a big salad with lots of veggies and a low-fat low-calorie dressing. My favorite dressings are Greek yogurt based and considered a limited extra on the Nutrisystem plan because they are 35 calories per serving. You can have up to 3 limited extras throughout the day. A few more hours after lunch, I would have another power fuel and smart carb.

Typically that would be an apple with peanut butter. Finally I would have my dinner with some more veggies and a dessert right before bed. See how much food you get to eat on the Nutrisystem plan?

I always saved my dessert as long as possible because looking forward to the dessert helped me stay away from temptations throughout the day. I work at a fairly large office and there are lots of birthdays and other celebrations.

Each celebration is a temptation that I am able to either resist or give into. I choose to resist those temptations because I do not like how I feel when I give into them. Nutrisystem gives me chocolate so I can resist other chocolate temptations. There is always a food selection that will meet your cravings and satisfy your hunger. With Nutrisystem I just grab my food for the day on the way out the door. I have everything I need to stay full and satisfy my hunger throughout the day.

The truth is that Nutrisystem is actually less money then I spent on food before I began the program. I am so happy that I decided to take the plunge and order Nutrisystem. The foods also lacked any sort of freshness. If you enjoy the finer flavors of fresh fish and other lean meats or home-cooked nutrition, this is not the diet for you. While NutriSystem's meals are healthy and well-balanced, they are all pre-packaged and have mammoth ingredient lists that contain countless unpronounceables.

While many of those strange ingredients are no doubt used to keep the unfrozen foods from spoiling, they don't appear to be doing much in the freshness department. I should also note that this diet is not very ecologically friendly.

Because everything comes in wrappers and handy plastic and cardboard containers, my trash output for the last month easily tripled.

As many readers have complained, NutriSystem often swaps meals in their orders. Because people are surely going to hate some of NutriSystem's foods, this can be very annoying.

But Jamie said that if anything is swapped and you don't like NutriSystem's replacement, to call your counselor and NutriSystem will send it to you free of charge, and even let you keep the food you didn't order. She said she had one customer who had all 54 of her monthly desserts swapped because she wanted just one every day of the diet and the warehouse happened to be out of it. Jamie said NutriSystem sent her a box of 54 of the desserts she had originally requested. Overall, the diet definitely works.

I surpassed my weight loss goal and I feel good. If one follows this diet closely, they will be eating healthy and surely lose significant weight. The diet also taught me a lot about eating healthy, portion control and good kinds of calories versus bad. For the right people, I would suggest this diet. First, you need fairly deep pockets since it costs so much.

You also have to be committed, which I suppose the payment for the plan already indicates. Finally, you have to be willing to cut out alcohol and dining which in my case meant much of my social life. The diet would probably also be good for people who have shown prior commitment to diets but because of no real boundaries, didn't achieve their goals.

With NutriSystem, your daily calorie intake fluctuates very little and as long as you follow their strictly defined daily planner, you're sure to burn off some calories. However, because the diet is so strict, there's almost no adjustment for different lifestyles. Being young and automobile-less, I have a very active lifestyle. I walk at least four miles everyday, jog regularly throughout the week and am rarely sedentary.

I am sure I am a more active dieter than many others, yet regardless, I was taking in the same daily calories like all the other men in the diet.

My counselor said that if a customer is pounds overweight, he or she should add a few more daily servings. But other than that, there is little room for flexibility.
