Nutrisystem {Week 4}

Has it really been a whole month already? My time on Nutrisystem has really flown by and part of me can hardly believe that my journey is a quarter of the way done... and the other part of me is so excited to see where things are in the upcoming months.

I've mentally had my ups and downs but each week the scale doesn't let me down and I'm so happy about that! Here's a quick recap summing up the past month...

What? You thought that I would actually appear in my own video? Eh, it'll happen eventually.

So, let's get to the results, shall we? This past weekend I was extremely fortunate to get away with my husband to review a great resort not too far from here and they treated us to a meal that was... huge. And amazing. And, after drinks and appetizers and entrees, included things like this:

In the past, let me tell you that I would have eaten that Colossal Chocolate Cake until there wasn't a speck left on the plate... and that was after I finished off all of the courses before it. But after a month on Nutrisystem, I knew that it wasn't worth it to have more than a bite or two. I didn't need to eat the entire thing to be able to fully enjoy it.

Besides, we could save the rest and take advantage of the tastiness again the next day!

But even after not overdoing it, I still felt a little too full that evening and couldn't help but wonder what the weekend's meals were going to end up showing on the scale this morning...
Starting weight: Too much
Week 1: -3 lbs
Week 2: -3 lbs
Week 3: -1 lbs
Week 4: -1.4 lbs

Total loss: 8.4 lbs

Another 1.4 pounds gone, I am really happy with that! That brings my weight loss for one month to 8.4 pounds and has moved my weight down into the next set of digits, something that I haven't seen in a while. Looking at that middle digit and seeing it move down brought a smile to my face and has only made me even more excited for next month! My inner competitiveness has to meet or beat the 8.4 pound mark, so here's to another great month of food and support from Nutrisystem!

Oh gosh, maybe I'll try some Nutrisystem foods, like the desserts. I do love my desserts but not the fattening high calorie ones. Loved the vid! WTG on another 1.4lbs that is amazing!!!

That's awesome! You are doing so well and it shows. I can imagine it was tempting to eat more of that delicious looking dessert. But you didn't and that's amazing. I have such a sweet tooth that I don't know if I could have resisted. I'm very excited to hear about your coming weeks on the program. Yay, Xenia!!!
