Nutrisystem {Week 9}

Nutrisystem It has already been nine weeks on Nutrisystem? Really?

As much as I have been enjoying the program for more than two months now, I haven't missed all of the talk in the media discussing the pros and cons of the program and its competitors. And it is a good question - with all of the various weight loss plans out there, how are you going to know which one is for you?

For me, I haven't personally tried many of the other big-name programs because I'm not into going to weekly meetings (when the heck would I do that?), counting calories or converting every morsel I eat into some point system, having to replace meals with shakes (okay, I have tried that. I was starving so I ended up eating while also drinking the shakes... which didn't help anything) or, most importantly, shelling out a small fortune to join.

Just take a look at the Nutrisystem vs Jenny Craig Cost Comparison, the difference is huge!
On top of the price, I know that my main weakness is my lack of will-power and that, when left to my own devices, I eat far-too-large portions of foods that might not be the most healthy choices. So by having a clear plan to follow and the food pretty much ready and waiting, it is no wonder that my Nutrisystem journey has been going as well as it has!

However, that doesn't mean that I'm not continually surprised (and pleased!) when I step on the scale. This morning was no exception when I saw...

Nutrisystem NationStarting weight: Too much
Week 1: -3.0 lbs
Week 2: -3.0 lbs
Week 3: -1.0 lbs
Week 4: -1.4 lbs
Week 5: -1.0 lbs
Week 6: -0.8 lbs
Week 7: -0.8 lbs
Week 8: -1.4 lbs
Week 9: -1.0 lbs

Total loss: 13.4 lbs

Of course I was a little bit spoiled last week having lost more than a pound, but I'll still take it! Particularly because my awesome friend who made far too many yummy foods for Valentine's Day had us over for dinner last night and made an extremely tasty dinner and dessert that I couldn't help but enjoy.

But another pound gone is another pound gone and when I think that it was only nine weeks ago that the 13.4 pounds were still on my body... well, how can I not be thrilled?
