It’s been 20 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 16 weeks for Kaytlin.
I can’t believe it’s been five months since I started this journey. Watching the celebrities in the television commercials… somehow I just knew it had to be harder than they were saying. I had never been on a plan that was easy to stick to.
Five months later, I can now say… “Yes, it is hard. But in a way it is easy. It’s a journey that you have to take one day at a time. With the support and guidance from Nutrisystem employees and other program followers (on the website) it is a very doable program… even long term! Their support makes the journey so much easier.”
I have never stuck to a program this long! Every bump I’ve hit along this journey, in the past would have thrown me way off course. I would have told myself “You blew it… what’s the point.”.
I’ve learned that “life happens” and you move on… what an incredible thought!
I’ve decided what makes this plan work for me…. I need things layed out for me. I need to be told “what to eat” and “when”. I have always said “If I had a personal chef I could lose the weight, too!”.
Nutrisystem is my personal chef.
So, even though I am not where I thought I was going to be 20 weeks ago (my aim was 50 lbs) … I am pretty darn close.
This week I lost 2.6 lbs!
That puts me at 30.8 lbs in 5 months!
Six pounds a month average is a good healthy loss rate… I am very pleased with it!
You know what I just realized?
I am at my pre-pregnancy weight with Emma!
It’s been almost five years since I weighed this!
I’m so freakin’ excited!!! lol
Oh, and I forgot to mention… I earned my 30 lb Nutribear!

Kaytlin is going strong and still amazes me. On days that I am tempted and want a partner in crime… she says “no”. She definitely is helping me stick to plan.
So spring is trying to stick around and Kaytlin and I have been trying on our summer clothes from last year. I thought something was wrong when Kaytlin came upstairs and said she had a problem. Problem? Her shorts from last year fell off! I think that is a good problem to have! My shorts fall at my hips now. I tried to wear them and they stretched out enough that they fell off by the end of the day *giggling*.
Time for a girls day out and some well earned SHOPPING!
This week Kaytlin lost 1.2 lbs.
That makes a total of 32.4 lbs in four months!
