Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 9.

A funny thing happened on the way to the farm this week. I ran out of my Nutrisystem food. There was a little snafu with my order, and though all is well and I am totally back on my plan now, I definitely struggled a bit.

I honestly didn't think I was struggling though. I did what I always do when a problem arises; I came up with a solution. I thought about how I would transition off of Nurtisystem and that is what I did. I stuck to my eating schedule and substituted regular food from the grocery store. Well, food that I thought was comparable. I choose lower calorie, lower sugar, high protein and high fiber food. I ate at the same times that I normally eat my Nurtisystem food. I managed. Though I really have to admit that I missed the food, especially my favorite protein packed Fudge Graham Bars.

What I didn't manage to do was lose any weight. I guess it goes to show how powerful and how well Nutrisystem really works. In just five days of being off of Nutrisystem and eating similar foods, I gained 3 pounds, bringing my weight loss down to just 12 pounds. It was not what I was expecting.

I am going to stick to Nutrisystem 100% and work out extra hard to lose that weight. I will back on track and will still try to reach my goals!
