Weekly Weigh In Weeks 47 & 43 on Nutrisystem: Confessions #NSNation

It’s been 47 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 43 weeks for Kaytlin.   It’s confession time. Kaytlin and I have been on hiatus of sorts (from Nutrisystem). After being on an eating plan for about 11 months, I was yearning to eat the same dinners I was cooking for my family. I wanted to eat Papa Johns with the crew. You know the drill. It was slow at first, but then I basically went on a Nutrisystem strike. I only ate the breakfast and … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 44 and 40 on Nutrisystem #NSNation : B&A Photos!

It’s been 44 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 40 weeks for Kaytlin.   This week I decided it was time to dig up some old photos and compare them to “now”. Because we were both so self conscious, we did not take formal “before” photos (take a mental note: ALWAYS take before photos). After a little digging I found a few to compare to our current photos. Here I am down 33 pounds compared to “before” and feeling great… This week I lost … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 43 and 39 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 43 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 39 weeks for Kaytlin.   We did it! Both Kaytlin and I ran our first 5k… the Susan G. Koman race for the cure! It was difficult because there were so many walkers (we did non-competitive) and we had to weave in and out (even on the sidewalk). BUT, we DID IT! Our running has slowed down considerably since. For some reason I just am not tolerating the heat as well… right now it’s reaching over … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 40 & 36 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 40 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 36 weeks for Kaytlin. I am officially a Couch to 5k graduate! Kaytlin and I are now training for our first 5k this weekend… the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. It’s so hard to believe that 10 weeks ago I couldn’t run even 30 seconds without begging to stop and now I have run 53 minutes without stopping. I have been nursing my knee for a couple of weeks. I believe I had tendonitis and it … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 39 & 35 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 39 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 35 weeks for Kaytlin. Kaytlin and I both had a milestone moment this past weekend. The family went to a local water park to cool off and have some fun. In years past, Kaytlin says she would have quickly disrobed and planted her behind in the deep end of the kiddy pool to help me with the kids. She says she would have remained in this “hidden” position for most of the trip. I, on the other … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 37/38 & 33/34 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 38 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 34 weeks for Kaytlin. I went to start my weigh in post for this week and realized that last weeks never posted… oops! So, I will just update both weeks. Because we have been running and watching our weight climb, Kaytlin and I decided to find other ways to measure our success. We have quickly realized that sometimes the scale lies!!!! We found a home body fat % calculator online to start … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 36 & 32 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 36 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 32 weeks for Kaytlin. Vacation… Last week our family went on a short vacation (tagged along to a conference Dad had to go to) and we left before our Nutrisystem food could arrive. I had planned to bring most of my food with me and supplement on the road. What can you do, though. Unfortunately we cannot control the mail. So we left, both of us without a crumb of Nutrisytem food in tow. I was … [Read more...]

FitBit Wearable Wireless Fitness & Sleep (Activity) Tracker Review

Kaytlin and I have been on Nutrisystem for several months now and have decided it’s time to add movement to our lives and program. We really had no idea how much movement we were already doing, how many calories we ate or burned or how well we were sleeping. All of these aspects are important to any weight loss/physical fitness program and we were on a hunt to try to find a way to track them. Then we found the Fitbit Wireless Activity Tracker. … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 35 & 31 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 35 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 31 weeks for Kaytlin. I didn’t blog last week, mainly because I am frustrated. I keep fighting to get away from the 30 lbs. weight loss marker and it keeps sucking me back in. To tell you the truth I am ultra frustrated this week as well. Why? Six weeks ago Kaytlin and I started a running program called Couch to 5k. It’s a 9 week program to get a couch potato like myself moving and able to … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 33 and 29 on Nutrisystem : #NSNation Vlog

It’s been 33 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 29 weeks for Kaytlin. I decided to change it up a bit and Vlog this week. It was a little awkward and I hate videos of myself… but here you go.   So, let’s get to the business at hand… I know you are curious how we did… This week I lost 1.6 lbs. That puts me at  32.8 lbs in 33 weeks Week & -/+ Total Loss week 1: - … [Read more...]
