Nutrisystem Week 2 (Catch-up) #NSNation

March 29, 2012

So I’m a little behind in updating you all about my progress on Nutrisystem.  I’m technically just finishing week 3, so I’ll count back to week 2 for now.

Week 2 has been so much easier for me than the first week. I was better prepared at the grocery store for my smart carbs and power fuels, and overall – didn’t do too much cheating. 

That is, until the weekend.

I’m pretty convinced that my husband (as much as I love him) is the sole root of my poor eating habits. Winking smile  Yes, I am actually blaming him right now.

Even though it’s really me.  It’s better when it’s his fault… right?

No. I don’t know what it is really – but when he’s home, it’s REALLY hard for me to stick to the Nutrisystem meals. All of a sudden when he walks through the door, I just want to eat sweets (which is what he eats a lot of!).

I’m either sneaking a little bit of what they’re snacking on, or cooking a meal that all of us are going to eat.
Granted – I’ve been MUCH better in that department as far as cooking healthy meals for dinner that all of us can enjoy.

I’ve also been loving on these frozen dinners that I got! This one is Citrus Barbeque DSC03019

Over the weekend, however, I’ve again ditched the plan completely.  Which isn’t good.  We are just out and about – and usually it’s noon before I have breakfast/lunch – and then we scurry for dinner, and often have a desert.  So weekends are bad.

I’ve found that I absolutely *love* the Vanilla flavored protein shakes (and despise the Strawberry flavor) – and I also love the granola cereal, the frozen omelets, and black beans and rice lunch.  I haven’t had a bad breakfast or lunch yet.. again, it’s dinners that throw me off. I’m learning to tolerate diet Dr. Pepper (and have even mostly cut soda from my daily drinking patterns). 

Good News?  At the two week mark I was officially down 5lbs since day 1 of the diet!!  I haven’t noticed much on myself yet – but my scale does!

I received the Nutrisystem plan free of charge in exchange for my reviews and experience with Nutrisystem.  My opinion is 100% my own.


  1. Oh man, that Citrus Barbecue looks sooo good. Have you tried getting your husband on board? He may not need to lose weight but everyone benefits in some way from eating healthier

    • Yeah – the Citrus Barbecue is good 🙂 It’s got Mango Salsa – the mango was in bigger chunks, but I cut it up so I could have a mango peice with each bite 😀 YuM!

  2. Betty Baez says:

    That looks yummy, lol it’s kind of like how I blame hubby when he’s home I don’t keep up with the cleaning as well as I do when he’s working.

    • Ohmygoodness – me too! I try to clean REALLY good on fridays (Oh shoot, it’s Friday, isnt it?!) so that way the house can be ‘let go’ over the weekend. Then Monday morning I clean all over again… and it’s NOT fun, but better than keeping it clean all weekend! ha!
      Sometimes I’m just DYING for Monday to come so I *Can* get the house cleaned up.
      Husbands = bad influences! lol!

  3. I love their chocolate shakes! And so far, the citrus bbq pork is my favorite!

  4. Congratulations!!! I have been debating starting something like Nurtisystem, but I just worry about sticking to it since I have to cook for everyone in my family. We eat pretty healthy now, but I would love to lose a little and like you my husband is not very helpful in discouraging bad eating habits 🙂

    • Yeah… after getting my next shipment today of all the frozen stuff, I realized really HOW many dinners I’m skipping, and I need to start eating those. I’m probably going to have my husband eat some of them too, just so I can stick to it. The kids are really simple to feed. it’s when i have to cook for DH that I have problems!! 😀

      • Or another idea is simply eating the breakfast/lunch/snacks, etc… and sticking to your own dinner options. I think if I was purchasing this for myself, that’s what I would do – because I have a hard time sticking to dinner right now. But eating healthier all day, is encouraging, and still is progress 😀

    How awesome Amy! I’m glad it’s working well for you.

  6. I have the same worry as Beth. I also worry that Nutrisystem costs a lot, but you still have to buy add-ons at the grocery store.

  7. Wow Great job! A five pound loss is great because at increments like that you are more likely to keep it off. Your meal looks so good but where is the potato or rice or noodles or bread? That is my biggest problem with weight loss. I like the stick with ya kinda foods that really isn’t needed if you are eating small amounts all day of veggies and protein.
