My Journey with Nutrisystem has come to an end #NSNation #ad
Over the last three months I've been sharing with you weekly about my journey on the Nutrisystem program. I've shared my highs and my lows along the way because I wanted to be honest with you about how I have done with it. I have learned a lot through-out this journey and I hope if you've been following along you've learned some things too. The biggest thing was that I had to stop what I was doing eating whenever and whatever I wanted through out the day. I learned how to manage what I was eating through smaller portion sizes, and by choosing foods that are actually good for my body and could help me effectively burn the calories I was taking in. That meant eating on a schedule, and eating more veggies in between meals for snacks. It took some time but after a few weeks it really became easier and a part of my daily life. On the days I wasn't able to follow the exact program it left me feeling lost and incomplete for the day.
As far as exercise goes I missed out on a lot of it due to being ill and having a surgery that kept me restricted from exercise for a few weeks. Now that the weather is clearing up finally I plan to get out a lot more and playing with the kids so I am confident that I'll be able to get lots more in now.
I plan to stick with my routine of eating smaller portions through out the day because I really want to lose even more than I have already. I want to get back to a weight where I feel my best all of the time. I've lost 20lbs which shows, but as you can tell there's still plenty that can come off. To be honest until I did the before and after photos I hadn't realized just how much I had lost. And after seeing them it's given me confidence that I can keep going and lose even more.
Weight: 188 lbs

Through it all I had the support that I needed from my family as well as a dedicated Nutrisystem counselor. She was always there when I needed a question answered and in between she would check in on me to make sure all was going okay. Between that and the app I was using to track my journey I think the two together were instrumental in my weight loss. The app helped me to see daily if I was drinking enough, eating the right amount of calories, exercising like I should, and it showed my progress in weight loss.
Thank you for following along with my journey, I hope you were able to take something from it!
