I’m Going To Start Nutrisystem!

October 14, 2011 by  

I’m So Excited!

I am So out of shape and So heavy that I have to do something!  I was thrilled that Nutrisystem accepted me to do a  four month review* of their system!

I received my first months supply of the pantry – shelf life products already!

nutrisystemIt’s like opening a Christmas present! lol   What stood out to me really quickly and that I thought was really cool was that the meals are color coded.  Breakfast is Blue
Lunch is Green
Dinner is Red
Snacks are Pink

Being an organizer I love to color code! It makes it quick and easy to see what you need.

nutrisystem color codingI lost almost 50 pounds with a similar system back in 2008.  It worked well, I just didn’t stay on it after I stopped the plan and over the two years all the weight came back.  The combination of menopause, sitting and blogging majority of the day and not exercising, along with a huge sweet craving… you will gain weight.. just sayin’

I think it is interesting that although I weight as much as I do back in 2007-2008 it has distributed a bit differently this time.  My arms are now very heavy looking, my hips & butt are huge  of course (where I always gain) and I have a stomach.  ugh

I actually about 25 pounds MORE than I did when I was pregnant with any of my 4 boys!

I always weighted in the 130′s until after my 4th son. Then I got up into the 140′s.  Now I’m higher! lol

I’m still have to get my frozen products.  They should be coming soon.

I’m planning to start the program on Monday, and will be reporting to you every Friday on my progress.   I’ll be using the hashtag #NSNation which stands for Nutrisystem Nation.
I will do my weight in and show you my gross.. gag.. before pictures.   Since I had been doing the Couch to 1 mile (my plan) to start running, on Fridays, I’m going to add that into my posts.  My Doctor put a halt on my running because my heart rate was going up to 200 on my 60 second runs. Sad huh? She said I can’t run until I can walk a mile keeping my heart rate below 160.

I’ll let you know next Friday how my first 5 days has gone!!

*I have been selected to participate in the Nutrisystem Nation blogger program. For four months, Nutrisystem will provide me with their meals at no charge for my review. I am not being compensated for my participation.

  1. Be sure to tell us how you FEEL eating this “food” – not just how many pounds you lost. I’d be interested to find out how this method of eating effects your moods, health, energy level……
