This last weekend I went to a birthday party for a friend of my son’s. I knew the mom and her family because she used to be our daycare provider before they moved an hour and a half away (sad face). While I was at this party we got to discussing dieting, exercise, and what we have been doing.

I mentioned how I was on the Nutrisystem program, and how well it has been going for me. I told her how it honestly felt like I wasn’t even dieting, and it was so easy to do.

I don’t feel like I am missing out on any foods, and I am still losing weight every week! I haven’t been exercising at all during the program (although I do hope to change this soon), and the pounds just seem to melt off each week without me even feeling like I am dieting.

I got to thinking about it afterward, and I think that part of my success on this program really is that I don’t feel like I am on a “diet.” I just feel like I am eating the same foods that I always eat, just in a better, more portion controlled way. 

If you go back to my week 8 update, you will recall that I mentioned eating out at a buffet and feeling very ill afterward. I have become so accustomed to eating the right amounts of food now, that my body doesn’t even like when I try to eat more than I should. 

This week I have continued my slow but steady move in the right direction by going down another pound. I honestly think that every time I step on the scale it is going to tell me that I’ve gained all this weight back, or haven’t lost anymore, but somehow each week I manage to pull out losing another pound.

If that doesn’t speak volumes about a weight loss program, I don’t know what does!


Nutrisystem Success Report

Program Starting Weight: 159 lbs

Weight loss this week:  1 lbs

Weight after week 9: 148 lbs

Total weight loss: 11 lbs

Even though I don’t feel like I’m dieting, or that I’m doing anything to lose weight, I am! I am over half way to my goal, and I know I can get those last few pounds off. I’m so ready to be back down under 140 pounds.  It won’t be long!
