For 16 weeks, Lori Jackson, a mom of three and grandmother to two, will be checking in with DietsInReview.com to share her personal experience with Nutrisystem. The good, the bad, and everything in between, see first-hand how the Nutrisystem program works.
Nutrisystem Week 6
I work in a warehouse where it’s typically very hot, which means I get a pretty generous workout during my work day. Since it is cooling off, that means my “at work” workout is not going to get me as far. I’m still walking 8-10 miles every day (per my pedometer) but in cooler conditions, so I will have to start my regular workouts on the Wii again, like the Wii Sports boxing that is a lot of fun… and a huge workout!
Watching what you eat is just as important as the workout. You can lose the weight by eating healthier and cutting portion sizes. Or having them come via the mail from Nutrisystem in pre-packaged portion sizes… I LOVE IT. Without the workout to tone your body or give your body the extra push it needs to drop the pounds, you’ll only see moderate results. The food can only take you so far, the workouts will take you the rest of the way! Plus, losing the weight makes you feel fabulous and a great workout gives you so much energy. I cannot believe how good I feel right now. And really can’t wait to see how I feel at the end of my Nutrisystem Meal Plan (16 weeks total). Or how I will look.
Now the meals this week have been pretty good. You know at work it has been hot so eating the soups that are provided in my Nutrisystem package has been a struggle, but I ate them anyway. I do wish there were a few more choices for cooler meals at lunch, but the fruits and veggies do help with the cool down. I love tomatoes and a friend at work has been bringing them to me almost every day from his garden. That has been a great refresher in the middle of the hot afternoons.
This week’s advice: Eat your veggies and drink that water! Enjoy your week.
