My Nutrisystem Weight Loss Journey: Week 3

 I've always been a firm believer that the little things always make the biggest difference.  Since starting my weight loss journey with Nutrisystem, I've made noticeable strides by making better choices, even the small ones.

Instead of snacking on chips and chocolate, I'm eating fresh fruits and vegetables.  Instead of drinking soda and super sweet tea, I'm drinking a minimum of 64 ounces of water every single day.  To sweeten it up a little, I add zero calorie drink mixes or lemon wedges to my water!

Here are just a few things that I've been doing to increase my activity:

  • No matter where I'm going, I park at the far end of the parking lot!
  • I take the stairs instead of the elevator!
  • I use the downstairs bathroom!

My clothes are fitting differently, and I don't have nearly as much muffin top!  Being able to see and feel the difference is what keeps me pushing forward, positive and focused on reaching my goal.  It is a great feeling! 

During my 3rd week on the Nutrisystem program, I lost...

3.2 pounds!

That brings my total weight loss to 11.8 pounds!

My next weigh in will mark a very special milestone, a month on Nutrisystem!  When I started, I was hoping to lose 15 pounds in the first 4 weeks.  I'm so close... stay tuned for the results!

I always play a game with myself during the day to see how much water I can drink.

That is awesome. I always add lemon to my water as well! I'm big on portion control which is how I maintain my weight!

Glad to hear you are having such success!!

A very good tip for me is drinking lots of water. With this being my first week on Nutrisystem, I have been focusing on getting those two water bottles down each day. Most days, I've actually drank 2 1/2 (80 ounces).

I think it's keeping me more full so I don't have the cravings to snack or nibble!
