Nutrisystem Update Week 33: One Week Left + Some Exciting News!

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

WOW! So hard to believe that we’re heading into our final week on the Nutrisystem program! If you’re just joining us, the hubby and I have been losing weight together with Nutrisystem. Each week, we post a new update and share tips, info about our experiences, let you know about the program, and tell you how much we’ve lost so far.

Just a reminder that we’re celebrating our Nutrisystem success with a giveaway and it’s your LAST week to enter! WIN a 5-Day Nutrisystem Meal Kit and help jump start your own weight loss (ends 6/9)!!!

Knowing that we are wrapping up our time with Nutrisystem, the hubby and I really pushed extra hard last week and he’s got some super exciting news. He has reached the weight loss goal he set back in October when we started our journey! Not only that, but when we did our weekly weigh-in yesterday morning, he was actually BELOW his goal weight of 190…weighing in at 189.6 lbs, meaning he’s lost a total of 60.4 pounds!

I think I mentioned that Woof Woof Papa has started training for his first marathon, and this is due in no small part to the weight loss he’s been able to achieve thanks to Nutrisystem getting us back on the right path when it comes to portion control and logging what we eat.

I also have a reason to celebrate. Although I haven’t quite reached my goal weight yet, I dropped 3.8 pounds since last week’s weigh-in for a total of 37.8 lbs lost so far. That means I’m only 6.2 lbs away from my goal of 145. I think I’m within a few weeks of reaching it, and I’m going to do my best to do it by the end of June no matter what!

If you missed any of our previous Nutrisystem posts, just visit the links in the table below or click here to catch up! We’d love to hear about your own weight loss experiences, advice and challenges, so leave a comment and share some with us. We’re also happy to answer questions, so ask away!

Nutrisystem Update Week 31: Meal Measure Portion Control Tool

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

We’re adding a great new portion control tool to our weight loss routine! If you’re just joining us, the hubby and I have been losing weight together on the Nutrisystem program. Each week, we post a new update and share tips,  info about our experiences, let you know about the program, and tell you how much we’ve lost so far.

Easy Portion Control Tool for Weight Loss and Maintenance

As I mentioned in last week’s weight loss update, we’re preparing to transition from doing all Nutrisystem meals, to doing our own cooking at home. In addition to the great Nutrisystem Cookbook we told you about, we’re ready to test out the Nutrisystem Meal Measure. It’s an easy to use portion control tool that fits right on your dinner plate and helps dieters learn what a proper portion looks like for each meal.

With individual spaces for protein, starch, fruit and vegetables, the Meal Measure is almost a no-brainer to use…just fill to the line in each cavity (half cup line on the inside or full cup at the top) and then lift the Meal Measure to enjoy your perfectly portioned meal at home!

We’ve had such a busy week that we relied on our pre-portioned Nutrisystem meals just about every day but are hoping to sit down, get organized and plan out some meals we can cook for ourselves soon. That really is one of the biggest challenges and why the Nutrisystem program works so well for us…knowing it’s in the cupboards and freezer and that we can just grab what we want without thinking about it when it’s time to eat. Our challenge now is to use the new tools to plan and make our own meals rather than always rely on the packaged meals we’ve grown so accustomed to!
