Nutrisystem has a BUNCH of resources. The reason I like the quote from Ronin about the many leaves "working together" essentially as one tree is that is sort of how my Nutrisystem journey has progressed. Nutrisystem gives me a pile of information, the NuMi app, counselor support, easy-to-follow food plan, and more. I simply use those tidbits that help me to achieve my goal of becoming a new, healthier being!
The Leaf features tips, success stories, recipes and all sorts of content -- I've only just begun to discover all of the information there. I don't have a smart device, so I haven't used NuMi, but it seems pretty streamlined for keeping track of your journey if you're a phone junkie!
My favorite day is delivery day. As I notice I've only a few meals on the shelves, I know that FedEx will soon be here! After a month of trying lots of varieties, I've found a handful of favorites that make up a lot of my diet now. I adore almost every breakfast! It's SUCH a breeze to grab a breakfast meal that pouring cereal now seems like a chore! With Uniquely Yours, you get to order what you want to eat. All month! Plus, you get a spin at "real world" lifestyle, cooking one dinner meal each week for yourself.
I've hit the ten pounds milestone and this week I've hit a small plateau. It's not a mysterious thing though. I attribute my standstill to TWO things: cookie dough and lack of workouts.
My truth is I have no control over temptation. I'm working on that. It's a reason Nutrisystem is GREAT for me. I simply do not buy foods that I cannot moderate my consumption. That means no chips, no cookies, no cakes... I will clear half of a pan of brownies in under 20 minutes just by going back through the kitchen for "one more taste" -- pretty soon, they're gone and I'm left feeling guilty. Or, when it got really bad, not feeling guilty at all, just wishing there were more brownies to eat. I
The other thing that simply MELTS weight off is pairing as little as 25 minutes a day of exercise with eating Nutrisystem! The days that I work out, I lose. If I cheat (we all do!) AND miss a workout? That equals a standstill or on really awful days, a small gain. Now you shouldn't be a slave to your scale, but my scale is my best friend. I weigh myself daily because I like to SEE the downward trend. It also helps me to gauge what works and what does in the realm of both meal planning and exercise. It gives me a glimpse into the accountability and helps me plan for living "off of Nutrisystem" and maintenance. So, if it works for YOU, I say why not? Let the scale be a tool.
No more cookie dough. No more missed workouts. Back on track for month TWO of my Nutrisystem journey!! I need ten more pounds to leave my life forever and I'm going to do it!
