A new start and losing weight with NutriSystem #NSNation

Today was the official Start of my NutriSystem journey.

For reference, I am doing Nutrisystem for the next three months in order to kick start my eating healthier and losing weight. This week I am using their Fast5 plan to really kick myself into gear on my goal.

NutriSystem is allowing me to use their plan for free during that time.

I’m not going to lie, I was nervous when I woke up and today.. day 1 was a complete and total struggle. Grocery shopping for things today was absolute torture. I swear the store had baked goods and yummy things all over the place begging me to eat them.

Above is a representation from model my diet on what I ‘currently look like’ and what I could potentially look like when I get to my goal of 150lbs. Now… I’d made it there before, but certain factors caused me to gain a ton of weight, and… well… I haven’t lost it. Even 5 months after having Risi I haven’t lost it. I’m at two pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight, but that’s not great at all.

start

This above is… sadly what I actually look like. 5’4″ and 222lbs. Yikes. I look and feel awful. I’m not the heaviest I’ve ever been (I was 224 when I got pregnant and 235 the day I delivered Ris) but I’m too heavy and I hate the way I look and feel. I will get back to my size 10/12!

My arms, stomach, and thighs are what I absolutely hate about my appearance right now. I can’t stand to look at myself in the mirror and there just so happens to be a full length one in our room. Right near Risi’s crib. Which means I have to force myself not to look. I don’t like seeing myself this way.

Upper Arms: 15.0
Chest: 41.0
Waist: 40.0
Hips: 53.0
Thighs: 27.0

Along with me Cid is going to diet, he’s not really using a program. Just trying to eat more proportionally and not go crazy with calorie dense foods of doom. He is 5’11” and 241lbs as of today. He’s been struggling the past year to get and stay below the 240 range.

His current measurements are:

Upper Arms: 13.5
Chest: 44.5
Waist: 42
Hips: 45
Thighs: 25

 

Well, wish us luck! I will give you more thoughts on my NutriSystem Fast5 week on Sunday!

    It takes a lot to make these changes, and I commend you for going down this journey. I hope nutrisystem can help, and I know a lot of bloggers out there can also help with emotional support along the way! Good luck! You can do it!

    Sounds like a great resolution and I wish you good luck with keeping yourself on the right track. Positive thoughts )and a bit of cheating once in a while) will help :)

    High five, I started my losing weight plan too. I too is 5’4″ and weighing 144 lbs, it has been 10 months since I gave birth. I am hoping to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I know it takes time. I heard a lot about nutrisystem but i haven’t tried. I will be waiting for an update.

      Best of luck! My first big goal is being 150, so heavier than you are now! My ultimate goal will perhaps be 135… I am not sure yet. I can’t get my hopes on a huge goal otherwise I will be discouraged. So, for now it’s small steps. Every pound counts! :D

    Good luck on your weight loss journey! In 1 year I lost 70 lbs by eating well and exercising daily. It’s been almost 16 months since I started, but I went from a size 14 to a size 6 and feel much better about myself.
