Nutrisystem Weight Loss Journey - Week 11 - #NSNation

My weight loss journey with Nutrisystem has been so rewarding. Many people in my life have approached me to tell me they are following my progress. My husband said even people from his work have said the same. I've gotten such nice compliments and it really fuels me to stick to the program. I just finished up my 11th week on Nutrisystem and when I got on the scale this morning, I had LOST TWO MORE POUNDS this week, for a total now of 18 POUNDS LOST. I'm also down a size in jeans which absolutely thrills me.
For many years, I've said I didn't need a weight loss program, that I just needed to eat less. I think that since Americans are such a "rich society" in general compared to the rest of the world, we just take for granted that we'll always have plenty of food to eat. (You might remember my brief Quit Eating Like A Pig Diet last year). I know now that I did (and do) need the Nutrisystem program, because I have the benefit of listening to the advice and suggestions of many people whose only goal is to help me achieve the weight loss I desire. I've learned so much about the foods I eat and I've been able to detach myself from the food emotionally, which was something I've always struggled with my entire life. Nutrisystem is more than just the foods I'm eating; it's my own personal cheerleading squad to reach my goals. Here is a typical day for me:
ham and cheese omelet for breakfast
plus a strawberry protein shake

mid-morning snack of yogurt
steak and cheese melt for lunch
plus two veggies and a protein or dairy food

mid-afternoon snack of fruit
chili with beans for dinner
plus two veggies and a slice of whole wheat bread
fudge sundae for dessert
I'm never hungry and the foods are delicious. I can satisfy my sweet tooth by choosing the chocolate covered donut for breakfast, or the Double Chocolate or Chocolate Peanut Butter bar for lunch, and every evening I get a dessert, from cookies to ice creams, or even a bag of snacks. I have yet to find a single food I don't like. Food no longer controls me and I am very secure that I will continue to lose all this extra weight and reach my final goal. I'm getting closer every week! You can see my visual update from last week HERE.
