    Nutrisystem ~ Starting Week 8



    Time flies when you're having fun! This program is so convenient and offers so many different food choices, I'm sorry I didn't try it years ago. I felt a little better this week; ditching the add-on veggies that are high histamine triggers seemed to do the trick. 



    This week's fave food is the Nutrisystem Ice Cream Sandwich. It tastes EXACTLY like a Flying Saucer Ice Cream Sandwich and is far less calories {130 vs. 220}. It's not only delicious, but a fun reminder that summer is just around the corner. Speaking of summer, here's a tasty thirst-quenching recipe for lo-cal lemonade from Nutrisystem. 
    Hey, guess what? I tried on a pair of jeans I haven't been able to wear in a few years and although they were a bit tight, they fit! I'm so encouraged to continue on this journey. 

    My sister was with me for this week's weigh-in ~ 



    LOL!! So adorable, I just couldn't resist. ☺☺ And now for the real weigh-in ~


    Down 2.2 lbs. for a 7-week total of 14.4 lbs. Yippee!!!

      Nutrisystem Starting Week 7




      This week included two separate overnight trips for me. Although I packed my Nutrisystem meals, I felt my system was off the entire week. It was clear I was retaining too much water from my swollen stomach and feet. I narrowed it down to three things I did differently ~ using sugary flavored creamers in my coffee at the hotel, not drinking enough water, and eating mushrooms and spinach which are high histamine triggers. If you're histamine intolerant, consuming even healthy foods can impede weight loss if they raise histamine levels too high. 



      I'm learning, albeit slowly, that a huge part of weight management is planning, and taking a moment to think before quickly grabbing something that might not be the healthiest choice because even the small extras add up. Rather than beat myself up over it, I substituted the Vanilla Turbo Shakes for the morning snack on the remaining days. These mixes are filled with vitamins, fiber, protein and probiotics. I mix the powder in the blender with water and crushed ice for a frosty treat. 



      This week's fave food pick is the Smoky BBQ Snack-A-Rounds. Love LoVe LOVE these multigrain chips made with quinoa and flax seeds that taste exactly like BBQ Potato Chips. There's about 20 chips in a single-serving bag which is 140 calories.




      Although this was an off week for me and I was up nearly a pound on one of the days I peeked at the scale, I managed to squeak by a loss of .2 lbs. Considering I wasn't feeling great all week, I'll take it and hopefully have better results to report next week after making a few tweaks. 

      Starting Weight ~ 180
      Week 1 ~ Lost 6.2 lbs. ~ Weight 173.8
      Week 2 ~ Lost. 1.4 lbs. ~ Total Loss 7.6 lbs. ~ Weight 172.4
      Week 3 ~ Lost .4 lbs. ~ Total Loss 8 lbs. ~ Weight 172
      Week 4 ~ Lost 2.2 lbs. ~ Total Loss 10.2 lbs. ~ Weight 169.8
      Week 5 ~ Lost 1.8 lbs. ~ Total Loss 12 lbs. ~ Weight 168
      Week 6 ~ Lost .2 lbs. ~ Total Loss 12.2 lbs. Weight 167.8
