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

For those of you 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 info about our experiences, let you know about the program, and tell you how much we’ve lost so far.

This week, we had family visiting us for Easter break so there was lots of restaurant eating and big family meals and we were on the go a lot…super FUN to all get together but challenging for those of us watching our weight.  Even though we did splurge just about every day, we did it on a smaller scale than we would have before being on Nutrisystem. That means just having a couple of jelly beans, and not the whole bag. We colored 2 dozen Easter eggs, but I only ate one egg. I had a big slice of pizza for lunch one day…but another day I had broiled fish. Last night I had a small cup of frozen yogurt instead of a large one…you get the picture!

We did our best to keep a balance between the splurges and the sensible eating so we could have fun and not regret it later. We also stuck to our exercise plans. The hubby went running as usual, and I walked with Daisy every morning. We ate Nutrisystem meals for all our breakfasts and didn’t do any snacking during the day to save the extra calories for lunch and dinners.

One more thing that I think really helped this week was weighing in every morning. In the past, a week of vacation or family visitors would mean completely ignoring the scale for 7 days and just pretending we wouldn’t gain weight. It would be common to have each gained 10-15 pounds in a week and then feel really surprised and bad about it after all the damage was already done.

While we both still gained a little bit over the past 7 days (I gained 1.4 and the hubs put on 4 lbs), seeing our weight each morning helped us stay accountable and more in control. I feel pretty good about how we did and we’re right back on track today now that everyone is on their way home.
