I was never much of a breakfast person before starting the Nutrisystem program, but I find myself becoming a big fan! Last week, I tried the new frozen breakfast burrito entree, and this week I had my first Cinnamon Roll along with a yummy chocolate protein shake. If I’d known I could eat pastries and drink shakes every morning and still lose weight, I would have started eating breakfast a long time ago!
The shakes are easy to make in the handy blender cup that Nutrisystem sends, and my favorites are chocolate and coffee. They’re meant to be a breakfast item, but I sometimes save mine for later in the day depending on my schedule and mood. And the cinnamon roll is even more delicious than I’d imagined…very much like the yummy Cinnabon ones you can get at the mall or airport!
I love that we are 7 weeks into the program and I’m still discovering new food items! They definitely have enough options to keep things interesting! We just placed our next food order and I reordered a bunch of my favorites, but am also excited about trying a few more new entrees!
Woof Woof Papa wants me to let you know that he got back on track and has recovered from his Thanksgiving feasting! He’d gained some pounds the week after Thanksgiving and has managed to drop them again quickly. Having a reliable and easy plan in place, that we know is working, really helps…so THANKS to Nutrisystem for that!
So how did we do this week? Here’s our week #7 update:
I lost 1.6 pounds this week for a total weight loss of 14.8 pounds so far! And the hubby lost 6.6! He’d gained 5 after Thanksgiving so that means he lost all that plus 1.6 more pounds for a total of 29 pounds to date. Honestly, the hardest part about this whole thing is how much faster he’s shedding the pounds but I’m still thrilled at what I’ve lost so far! And my goal is to drop at least .8 by next week so that at the end of our second month, I’ll have lost at least 15 pounds which is 1/3rd of the way toward my goal!
I’m a little nervous since we are heading into the most challenging part of the “holiday eating season” but we’re going to try to up the exercise a little and just keep plugging along! Having such yummy Nutrisystem food options in our freezer and pantry will sure help!
