Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 15 & 16 ~ #NSNation

I did not do a post last week, but I also didn’t lose (or gain) anything last week. Some weeks I find myself obsessed with weighing myself and I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I try not to get discouraged when I don’t see the numbers dropping. [Read more…]

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 14 ~ #NSNation

Hello Its almost a week since Thanksgiving and I am back on track with the Nutrisystem Diet. I did gain almost 2 pounds but I knew I would so it was not a real surprise. But time to get back to work and try to reach my goal before the Christmas and New Years holidays. Today I had the spaghetti w/meat sauce a bowl of oatmeal and a banana for dinner and am really looking forward to the new chocolate cheesecake off the advanced plan. As I stated last week I really enjoy the fact that I have such a variety of new foods to choose from so it does not feel like I am dieting its like I’m trying something new and lets face it we all like to try different things. Thanks again Nutrisystem for letting me try all these amazing healthy and awesome tasting foods.  You make it so easy to jump right back on the bandwagon even when I sometimes stray, and the flexibility of the Nutrisystem Plan is so appealing that I WANT to and can’t wait to get back on track.    I am ready for the New Year and a New ME thanks to Nutrisystem!

Tim and  I would absolutely love it if you followed his Nutrisystem Journey and words of encouragement are ALWAYS appreciated!!

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 13 ~ #NSNation

 

As I sit here writing this I am enjoying a piece of lemon and apple pie and I don’t feel guilty at all. Because I know that the Nutrisystem meal plan has proved to me that it works in helping me reach my weight loss goals. Every time I receive my meals in the mail I am happy to see the meals that I have grown to enjoy as well as something new. This month I received Margherita Pizza, Breakfast Burrito, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and Red Velvet Whoppee Pie. I don’t know if I will try them all on the same day or try to spread them out but guess what it is my choice. Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and remember tomorrow will always come whether you eat pie today or not so enjoy today.

I did not lose or gain anything this week.

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 12 ~ #NSNation

I

Another week over already and still feeling good. I did gain a pound or two over the last couple of weeks, but I am still almost 25 lbs less than I was when I started the Nutrisystem program. With the holiday season coming up on us so quickly I am really going to have to stick to the plan better than I have recently. I am very confident that the program that Nutrisystem has taught me will help me control myself when all my favorite comfort foods are in front of me. I have also learned that when I cheat I am only cheating myself out of the opportunity that Nutrisystem has given me. I will win this war and hit my second goal weight before the Christmas holiday!!

My measurements are now:                                                                             Starting measurements:

Weight:  228  lbs.  (22 lb weight loss)                                                           250
Upper Arms: 14″  (2′” loss)                                                                                   16
Chest: 42 1/2″  (2-1/2″ loss)                                                                                45
Waist: 43″  (4″ loss)                                                                                                 47
Hips: 44″  (4″ loss)                                                                                                   48
Thighs: 22 1/2 (1-1/2″ loss)                                                                                 24

 I did not lose anything last week, but I also didn’t gain anything so I am happy about that.  Pat did get a rotisserie for a review and giveaway last week so there have been a few nights where I have had a regular dinner, but the rotisserie is a healthy way to cook (and delicious).  I have learned that portion control is key when you’re eating off of the program so I am happy that I did not gain anything this week.

Here are some  before Nutrisystem pics

 And here are pics taken today

Well, what do YOU think?  I can see a BIG difference!!

We got an email today that my next shipment should arrive in a day or two and I am glad because I am running low.

Make sure you check back next week to see if I hit the 25 lb weight loss mark before Thanksgiving!!

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 11 ~ #NSNation

The best part about being on Nutrisystem is bumping into people I haven’t seen in months and seeing their surprise at how much less of me there is these days!!  The weight loss is not only a physical loss but a mental loss knowing that people are looking at you differently, and maybe even thinking if he can do it, I can do it!!  I can only hope I am encouraging others.  This will be my fourth month on the program and I am really nervous because I have recently shown signs of weakness and it’s very frustrating.  I am hopeful that the lessons I learned such as portion control will enable me to feel satisfied while not over indulging.

My measurements are now:                                                                             Starting measurements:

Weight:  228  lbs.  (22 lb weight loss)                                                           250
Upper Arms: 14″  (2′” loss)                                                                                   16
Chest: 42 1/2″  (2-1/2″ loss)                                                                                45
Waist: 43″  (4″ loss)                                                                                                 47
Hips: 44″  (4″ loss)                                                                                                   48
Thighs: 22 1/2 (1-1/2″ loss)                                                                                 24

The numbers above speak for themselves.

My BEFORE PICTURES CAN BE FOUND HERE.  I will post new pictures next week.  I am DETERMINED to get under 220 and I hope you stay tuned to see that happen!!

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 10 ~ #NSNation

It’s the middle of October which makes me crave comfort foods so I’ve been enjoying the things like Nutrisystem chili and Homestyle chicken noodle soup.  Although they don’t compare to what my wife makes they are good and flavorful and portion controlled. I used to eat until I was stuffed and I have found out that I am much happier and have a lot more energy when I  eat until I am full and don’t totally stuff myself.  I have had another week without any weight loss, and hope I haven’t plateaued.  I would like to lose about 10 more pounds, but I am very happy with the weight I have lost so far and with the way Nutrisystem has also changed my lifestyle.  I am starting to wonder how I will do once I stop the program and am afraid to find out.

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 9 ~ #NSNation

It’s hard to believe I’ve  been on NutriSystem for nine weeks now.  When I think of my eating habits before I started this diet and of my eating habits now boy have they changed.  Although I did not lose any weight this week, I also didn’t gain any so I am happy about that.  I am eating more sensibly and trying to be more conscious and practical about exercise and try to do things like take the stairs instead of the elevator when I can and the simple things not only are good for me but make me feel good.

Hopefully I will lose at least another pound over the next week . Make sure you stop back to  find out!

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 8 ~ #NSNation

I got notification that my shipment will arrive tomorrow  Thank God. I don’t know what I will do when my Nutrisystem meals run out. But I will definitely know what I wont do and that is go back to the way I did it before. I know now because of Nutrisystem that I dont have to eat till I am completely full all the time and that eating modest meals a couple times a day will sustain me until the next meal. Today I had the butternut squash ravioli and the onions were so sweet that I almost didnt have my chocolate cake ( I said almost). I still cant believe that I can still have the sweets that I crave and still loose weight. What a great deal for me. Today I lost another # and now weigh 225. I have another 5 #s to meet my goal weight. I will have to set a second goal once I meet the 1st one. I have to give all the thanks to my wife of 23 years for keeping me motivated and getting as excited as me when I loose a couple pounds. She has had to cook for herself and my youngest daughter for the last couple months and I really think she cannot wait to start to cook again for me. But that will have to wait until I finish the plan. Thanks for all your help and support I would not have done it without you. Love you forever

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 7 ~ #NSNation

This week has been the most challenging week so far. I went on a quick overnight trip to visit my mom, and of course she had to cook and of course I had to eat.  Patti asked me before I left if I wanted to take Nutrisystem meals or at least some Nutrisystem snacks with me and I said no because I planned on eating dinner with my mom. Believe me ~  she did not have to twist my arm at all. She even packed me leftovers for the ride home. Despite my total lack of control I weighed in at 226 today, which I am proud to say is my lowest weight in about 15 years!!   Last night I ordered my third month of food and I felt so relieved that I had another month to help me learn what to eat as well as how to eat. I am learning that you eat to live not live to eat. Nutrisystem – you are changing my life.

Tim’s Nutrisystem Journey ~ Week 6 ~ #NSNation

I am very proud to say  that for the first time in about 15 years I am under 230-lbs.   I am 229 to be exact, and I feel great!!  I have been on the Nutrisystem program for about 6 weeks now, and I can honestly say that I still  look forward to all three of my daily meals. I am now in a routine.  I have  found that I prefer the breakfast bars in the morning along with my shake.   I started adding 1 T. of peanut butter to the vanilla and chocolate shakes in the morning. My job is very demanding and often times I find I don’t have time for my morning  power fuel so I am now in the routine of adding it to my morning shake.   For lunch I usually add yogurt and a piece of string cheese to my Nutrisystem   lunch selection, and believe it or not is is more than enough to fill me up. Before Nutrisytem I would have either fast food or left overs for lunch and never felt full. I often felt sluggish after lunch.   I know now that I was not eating correctly, and that the things I was eating were in excess.   I want to start a work out regimen, but have not found the right one. I do try to add my “Daily 3” five minutes of exercise as best i can.  I certainly don’t want a set back after the success  that I have had with Nutrisystem .   This weekend I am lookin forward to seeing my mom who lives 300 miles away.  The last time she saw me I was 250-lbs. I have not told her about Nutrisystem – Boy will she be shocked when she sees me!!  This will really be the first time I have “traveled” since I’ve started Nutrisystem so it should be interesting to see how I do over the weekend!!

I am so excited about how successful I have been with the Nutrisystem program.  It is a lot easier than I thought it would be, and it makes me feel good every time I step on the scale.

 

When I started Nutrisystem my  measurements were:

Weight:  250 lbs
Upper Arms: 16″
Chest: 45″
Waist: 47″
Hips: 48″
Thighs: 24″

Here I am before starting the Nutrisystem program six weeks ago.

Here is what I look like after six weeks on the Nutrisystem program (after taking Bella out in the rain)…

Today, my measurements are:

Weight:  229 lbs  (total weight loss of 21 lbs)
Upper Arms: 13 1/2″  ( – 2 1/2″)
Chest: 43″   ( – 2″)
Waist: 46″  ( – 1″)
Hips: 45″  ( – 3″)
Thighs: 21″  ( – 3″)

Take a look at this picture of the “fresh frozen” box I recently received.  I think you can see why sticking to the program is so easy-LOL!!

Make sure you stop back next week to see how I did with my trip and seeing my mom over the weekend!!
