My Weight Loss Journey with Nutrisystem: Week 2 Results! #NSNation

**This is a sponsored post.  I will be following the Nutrisystem weight loss program free of charge.  All opinions are 100% my own!

Last week was the second week of my weight loss journey with Nutrisystem.  I had a great week enjoying some great foods and I lost 1 pound!  That puts me at 5 pounds total!  I'm very proud of my results!  Last week I was able to add in more fresh foods.  I didn't get any exercise in last week though, and this week I plan to be more active.  I want to tell you all about the great foods I tried this week!

First of all, I thought I'd let you know my eating schedule.  The important part of making a healthy lifestyle change is to eat healthy foods and to not let yourself get too hungry.  I know that when I let myself get too hungry, I will eat anything in site, and that's not good!  I have eaten a half a can of Pringles before without realizing it just because I was starving and those Pringles were the first thing I saw!  Now I try to eat more frequently and keep things like Pringles out of my line of sight.  I still buy yummy treats for my kids, but try to keep my Nutrisystem foods at the front of the cabinet so that I see those first!

I start my day with a Nutrisystem breakfast such as a peanut butter granola bar, a banana nut muffin, or apple cinnamon oatmeal.  I've also been adding in a cup of skim milk.  This helps to keep me full until my snack.  Nutrisystem wants you to have a Nutrisystem entree and PowerFuel for breakfast.

For my morning snack I've been having the Nutrisystem Protein Shakes.  This week I've been loving the Creamy Chocolate Protein Shake Mix!  It's so easy to mix with 6 ounces of water and some ice.  It's so yummy and really keeps me going until lunch time!  I also add a banana or an apple.  Nutrisystem wants you to have a SmartCarb and a PowerFuel for your morning snack.

 For lunch I eat a Nutrisystem lunch such as chicken noodle soup, cheese tortellini, or even a convenient meal bar.  I also add some fresh veggies or a salad.  I can't get over how convenient and easy these meals are!  There have been a few that I've been worried about trying, but I'm always pleasantly surprised with the flavors and how full I feel! 

For my afternoon snack I get another SmartCarb and PowerFuel.  My go to afternoon snack is some string cheese and grape tomatoes, or an apple and a tablespoon of yummy peanut butter.  I'm amazed that I am feeling full AND satisfied on Nutrisystem!

For dinner Nutrisystem wants you to have a Nutrisystem entree and a SmartCarb and a PowerFuel.  One of my favorite dishes has been the Thick Crust Pizza.  It's so delicious!  I pair it with a salad with fat free dressing, and a whole grain roll.  There are so many other great Nutrisystem meals to choose from!  I never get bored on this diet because I am eating so many different things! 

The best part of my day is DESSERT!  Nutrisystem has so many great desserts to help keep you satisfied!  My absolute favorite has been the Chocolate Cake!  It is so delicious!  I feel like I'm cheating on my diet, but I'm not!!!  I love that I can have such delicious foods with Nutrisystem and I am still losing weight!
