Another week of Nutrisystem down, and another pound down to match! Nutrisystem Success I love that I continue to see the scale inch it’s way down each week.  While I wish it was taking the stairs two at a time, I do know that what took 9 months to put on won’t come come off in 9 days, and I’m still very pleased with my success.

Easter Crafts via Pinterest

A quick look at my Pinterest boards and blog posts will tell you: I love holidays.  And so I get excited thinking about what crafts to make, recipes to cook, sweets to bake, etc. with each approaching holiday.  Because we have Easter just around the corner, this week Matter of Cents and I have choosen Easter Crafts as our weekly Pinterest Pin Me! theme.

I could easily have linked about 90 other things, and that’s what I love most about Pinterest.  It is a great repository for ideas of every nature; every time I visit the site, I find things I both want to recreate, and projects I want to tweak to my own tastes/needs.  Here are a few of my top picks.

Did you know that last month Nutrisystem celebrated their 40th anniversary?  That’s a pretty amazing feat for any company.  What is even more amazing to me, though, is that over the last decade, Nutrisystem has helped people lose a collective 71 million pounds!  Holy smokes!  That’s enough sticks of butter to circle the world at the equator.

Janet Jackson for Nutrisystem

Since the introduction of Nutrisystem, they’ve continued to innovate and update in order to promote the greatest amount of success for those following the plan.  They’ve added a Men’s plan, Women’s plan, Nutrisystem Silver, the Select (fresh-frozen) meals, and most recently the new fresh-frozen Chef’s Table Collection and the SUCCESS plan.  There’s truly something for everyone.

Things are continuing to roll along well for me personally, too.  I’m doing better about remembering my protein shake (thanks to the comment from Emily last week about setting a reminder on my phone), it’s been in the 70s and 80s so the weather has been prime for lots of outdoor walking and adventures (like the zoo!), and I lost another 2 pounds!

Previously: -9 lbs

Week 10: -2 lbs

Total: – 11 lbs

That puts me over the 10 loss mark and also brings my total monthly loss of 5 pounds – just shy of my 7 pound goal, with two weeks left in the month.  I’m really confident I’ll meet my goal, and that’s exciting!
