The hubby and I are back with another update for you on our weight loss, but first we’ve got some exciting  Nutrisystem news to share!  The new 5-Day Nutrisystem Jumpstart Your Weight Loss Kits are now available at a store near you!

We can tell you from personal experience that the first week of the weight loss journey can be the hardest, and the Nutrisystem 5-Day kits allow you to get off to a quick and easy start in reaching your weight loss goals. At $44.98, the kits are an affordable way to commit to losing weight and sample foods from the program.

The kit offers structured weight loss with menu items perfectly proportioned for weight loss, including some of our favorite Nutrisystem items:

  • 5 Breakfasts – Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bar, Cinnamon Bun Bar, Granola Cereal, Double Chocolate Muffin and a Honey Wheat Bagel.
  • 5 Lunches – Fudge Graham Bar, Cheesy Homestyle Potatoes, Chicken Noodle Soup, Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar, and Red Beans & Rice.
  • 5 Dinners – Chicken Alfredo, Lasagna with Meat Sauce, Rotini & Meatballs, Homestyle Beef with Potatoes and Thick Crust Pizza.
  • 5 Desserts – Chocolatey Nougat Bar with Peanuts & Caramel, Peppermint Cookie Patty, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fudge Brownie and a Coconut Almond Bar.

If you’ve been following along with our updates, you already know that Nutrisystem foods are intended to be combined with fresh grocery additions such as low fat yogurt, salad, fruit and vegetables.  To help you figure it all out, a free sample meal planer with program guide is included with all kits.

This week, I lost an additional .2 pounds while the hubby gained .2 lbs…so we both are doing pretty well staying on track, even if the pounds are dropping much more slowly now. As I mentioned last week, I’m working on upping my exercise intensity and drinking more water, along with focusing on smaller goals so I don’t get too focused on how much I still have to lose or how long it’s taking.

We’ve also started talking about what we are going to do when we are done with Nutrisystem. Although I’d be happy to stay on it forever, at some point we really have to preparing our own meals and putting everything we’ve learned so far into practice while we continue losing weight together. Luckily, we still have another month or so until we have to do it, but it’s good to have a plan so we’ll be working on it and telling you more about it in the weeks to come!

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!  If you missed any of our previous Nutrisystem posts, just visit the links in the table below or click here to catch up!
