Starting Week 38 with Nutrisystem


I attended two holiday parties this week ~ first a neighborhood Caroling event which I organized that ended at our new Clubhouse where the staff had hot cocoa and dessert waiting for us. We also had the Grand Opening of our beautiful Clubhouse on Saturday. Here's a few pics of it with Chef Robert busily preparing the delicious hors d'oeuvres for the party ~


I think I did okay as far as what I ate at the Grand Opening...that is until I got home and broke into the goodie bag that contained homemade cookies!...UGH! Since cookies have always been my downfall, I had to pass on two Cookie Exchange invitations because I knew the temptation would be too much for me. Our indoor pool is also closed for maintenance so I didn't get in much exercise last week. Just in the nick of time, the very generous Nutrisystem team sent me this much appreciated Christmas gift. Thank you to all the Nutrisystem elves!


This is how my journey started except this box included Nutrisystem's new NutriCrush™ Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars {instead of the NutriCrush™ shakes}. Since I prepare my shakes in the blender with ice, the bars are perfect while on the road when a blender isn't available.


I'll be traveling this week, first an overnight and then for a week at my sister's. Taking my Nutrisystem meals with me and hoping I can stick to the plan for most of the time away. I've never dieted during the holidays and I'm finding it very difficult. 


I substituted NutriCrush® and Turbo Shakes for power fuels and healthy carbs a few days last week and weighed in this morning with a .2 lb. loss for the week bringing my total weight loss to 40.6 lbs. Although I feel like I'm in a fragile state as far as temptation goes, one thing these delicious food-filled holiday parties have made me realize is that I have a food addiction. I don't think I've ever given that much thought to it until now. My goal for 2017 is to find a way to conquer this addiction.

Starting Week 36 on Nutrisystem


Several weeks ago the new owners of my community implemented a mandatory food spend for our new Clubhouse and single members, like me, are required to eat as much as a family. Although I typically choose a healthy and delicious veggie wrap, it contains so much salt that eating my flex meals there were creating havoc on my body and diet. At the same time I was trying to figure out the right combination of calories, powerfuels and smart carbs to balance my exercise routine so the scale was, at times, on a bit of a roller coaster. 


To help me figure it out, I once again started logging my food, water, and exercise, either on numi or in the Nutrisystem journal that is shipped with every order. I also now ask the Chef to hold the salt when eating at our community restaurant. Now that I have several weeks of data to analyze, I'm beginning to see a pattern of minimal weight loss when exercising for an hour or more and when having flex meals out. I think the days I was exercising 2+ hours and eating the same amount of calories, my body was going into starvation mode and holding onto fat and calories. 



This week I weighed in at 139.8! It's been over 20 years since I've been in the 130's! This brings my 35-week total to 40.2 lbs. I LOVE this plan and, more importantly, it works!
