It’s time for our weekly Nutrisystem progress update and I can’t believe 4 weeks have flown by so quickly! In case you missed it, you can catch up on last week’s post here. Woof Woof Papa and I are pretty happy after our weigh in today, and we’re both celebrating a couple of milestones to tell you about!
One milestone we’re both celebrating this week is an improvement in our BMI numbers. BMI stands for Body Mass Index, and is an approximation of body fat based on a person’s height and weight. Because Obesity is linked to numerous diseases and health conditions, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone know their BMI and try to stay within the Normal Range. If you’d like to learn more you can visit the CDC and use their Free BMI Calculator here.
Thanks to the tools and apps available to Nutrisystem members, we always know our BMI. Our charts update automatically each time we log our weight and this is really helping us stay motivated. Weight loss is slow and takes a long time, no question about that…if there were an instant fix, we’d have ALL heard about it by now. But being able to visualize our small victories along the way really helps us stay on track! As you can see, at the end of our first 4 weeks, we’ve both dropped from the Obese range (yikes!) to the Overweight Range. While we’re not where we need to be yet for optimal health, we think this is a great accomplishment and are thrilled!
