My first week of following the Nutrisystem program as part of the Nutrisystem Nation Bloggers group went quite well.

The first few days went smoothly.  I stuck to the plan 100%, though some meals I didn’t add in all my “extras”; at each meal you’re supposed to add an extra fruit, veggie, dairy or protein (depending on which meal it was), but sometimes I just wasn’t hungry enough to eat everything.  That’s right – this plan keeps you so full and satisfied, that sometimes you don’t even want to eat all your food.

Some of my favorites from the first week include the frozen pizzas, pancakes (you can even add 2T of sugar-free syrup!), chili with beans, frozen meatball sub and the honey mustard pretzel bites.

I lost 3.5 pounds over the course of the week, too, which is a better result than I anticipated due to a couple of indulgences over the weekend.  Hubby asked me to bake him some chocolate chip cookies of which I had two (not bad considering it was the one weekend a month that I crave chocolate).  We also did fast food one night due to a few different reasons, but I tried to stay as close to the plan a I could (while still enjoying the treat) so I ordered a kid’s cheeseburger meal with child-size fries.

This week I hope to skip the cookies 😉  I’ll let you know on Monday if I was successful!
Week 1: -3.5 lbs
Total: -3.5 lbs
There are some other blogger friends of mine that are participating in the NSNation program.  I’d love if you’d pop over and show them some support, as well!

Nutrisystem Nation Program

Ham & cheese omelet.
Chicken quesadilla.
Pepperoni pizza.
Chocolate brownie.

Those are just a few of the foods I was able to eat on my first day of the Nutrisystem Women’s Select plan.  Sound good to you?  It was!  It all tasted good and I wasn’t hungry at all.

As I shared last week I am a new member of the Nutrisystem Nation Bloggers team and I’m really excited at the opportunity to take part.  Not only do I want to finish losing the last of my pregnancy weight, I just want to ensure that I’m fueling my body appropriately so I feel my best.  I read a quote the other day that really represents my thoughts.  It said:

If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?

So true!  Whether you have weight to lose, weight to gain – or if you just need to kick the four-Red-Bulls-and-two-chocolate-bars-a-day-instead-of real-food-for-energy habit – it’s all about taking care of the only “house” you have.

Each week I’ll be checking in with you all to share how I’m doing on the program, my favorite foods, tips, my challenges and my successes.  I hope you’ll follow along!  I’d love to hear from you, too – words of wisdom or encouragement, questions you may have, your own “getting healthy” stories – anything.
