Today I looked at the meal I prepared for dinner I thought WOW, has my diet changed over the past three weeks!! I used to eat two and sometimes even three servings at dinner time ~ There would NEVER be any leftovers. I used to eat a TON of carbs and my plate overflowed with calories…Now I find myself counting calories.
This week we went to Chili’s ~ Patti had a gift card from BlogHer so I met her and Alli there after dinner Thursday night. I ordered off of their lighter choices menu. I ordered the sweet and spicy chicken, and was shocked when I saw it had 750 calories!! That is the most calories I have eaten at once since I started Nutrisystem, and I felt so full, bloated and tired when I left there.
I am finding that my energy level is now a lot higher in the mid afternoon around 3 PM when I used to get so tired. I think it’s because of way the Nutrisystem meals are spread out throughout the day. I constantly have fuel to burn, and it is speeding up my metabolism. I don’t feel full after I am done eating but I am not hungry either. My wife tempts me with her homemade cooking and I have to admit I did eat a homemade chocolate chip cookie this week but I think I deserve it because as of today I’m down 14 lbs ~ Can I get a hell yeah??
Here is what a typical dinner looks like…I start with the Nutrisystem meal which you just pop in the microwave. I add my own smart carbs and vegetables, and added a dash of fat free dressing to my veggies to give them a little flavor!!
I just finished my 3rd week, and this week my measurements are:
Weight: 236 lbs (total weight loss of 14 lbs)
Upper Arms: 13 1/2″ (- 2 1/2″)
Hips: 46 1/2″ (- 1 1/2″)
My starting measurements were:
Weight: 250 lbs
Upper Arms: 16″
Here are this week’s pictures…..
I am anxiously awaiting my next delivery from Nutrisystem. I am starting to get nervous because I only have a few days worth of meals left so I hope my packages arrive soon.
Tim and I would absolutely love it if you followed his Nutrisystem Journey and words of encouragement are ALWAYS appreciated!!
