My Weight Loss Journey with Nutrisystem: Week 4 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 my fourth week following the Nutrisystem program.  I lost another pound!  That brings me to a total of 8 pounds!  I just love the way I feel and love that I am not hungry!  I've gone on diets before and just felt like I was starving the entire time.  Sure I lost weight but it didn't continue because I eventually gave up and went back to my old ways because I was hungry!  Nutrisystem foods are made with "good carbs" that digest slowly to help keep your blood sugar stable and your cravings at bay.  What's more is that they send you a meal plan that matches your metabolism which allows you to skip out on that usual dieter's hunger and cravings.  This in turns helps you to shed those unwanted pounds!  This has honestly been the easiest way I have ever lost weight!

This week I want to brag about myself!  As I mentioned in previous posts I lost weight prior to starting Nutrisystem and it has been a LONG time since I have gone shopping for clothing.  Well this weekend I knew I had to go buy something new.  Unfortunately a family member passed away and well, I just had NOTHING to wear to the funeral.  All of my clothes were too big and I just looked ridiculous with them falling off of me.  So I headed off to a local clothing store and started picking items off the rack.  The jeans that I was currently wearing were a size 16.  So I picked up a few pants that were a size 14 and went into the dressing room.  When I first looked at the jeans I was wearing in the dressing room mirror, I knew right then that they needed to hit the trash can as soon as I made it home!  I knew they were loose, but there's something about that dressing room mirror that always shows me my true appearance, whether I like it or not!  My pants were so baggy and just looked awful on me!  I had been waiting to buy new clothes until I hast lost more weight.... clearly this weekend was that moment!

As I tried on the size 14 pants I noticed that they looked much better but I still had some room!  I thought I'd try on a size 12 just for fun to strive toward after I have lost more weight.  So I picked out the same pants in a smaller size and reentered the dressing room.  I was SHOCKED!  The size 12 pants fit me great!  I hardly recognized myself in that mirror!  I looked so much better and the pants hugged my butt so well!  I just wanted to scream I was so excited!  I of course bought the pants and a cute top and couldn't wait to get home and share the news with my husband!

I am so proud of my accomplishment and can't wait to get the rest of this weight off.  I think of how far I've come and love all of the compliments I have been getting!  I will never go back to that chubby, frumpy looking mommy.  I want so much more out of my life and have been so much happier with myself since I started this journey to a healthier person!
Nutrisystem was just the push I needed to help myself out of the rut I was in.  I just received another shipment of foods today and I was so excited to put them all away and  restock my shelves with this delicious and nutritious food!  With over 150 different foods, I never get bored with what I am eating!  Sometimes I wish I had more of a particular item, but with all of the different foods I am sent, I don't have to repeat foods.  If I'm in the mood for Italian or Mexican, there is going to be something from Nutrisystem to curb my craving!

Getting started with Nutrisystem is easy!  You just need to answer a few questions and Nutrisystem selects a meal plan to match your metabolism.  The also offer support on their website.  My favorite is reading the success stories!  Reading them gives me motivation when I'm needing it!

(My Weight Loss Journey with Nutrisystem: Week 4 Results! #NSNation) I just noticed that you were doing this diet. You have made some great progress too. I kinda flux back and forth between size 14 and 16 in pants. I know one way to loose is to really cut out the junk food. Your doing great, keep up the good work!
