Nutrisystem Week 2 in Review: Some Revelations

It’s been two weeks since I started Nutrisystem, so here is my week 2 in review!


I’ve felt pretty good this week mentally, but I’ll admit I was a bit more restless then the previous week. I think losing 10 lbs in one week messed with my head just a bit. I expected to feel a bit better, be a bit skinnier, fit into my clothes better and honestly because I only felt all of those things slightly…I started convincing myself that the first week was a fluke and that it wasn’t going to work for me (Nutrisystem).

These are the mind games I always play with myself though, and I’m glad I can recognize that. I’m VERY self deprecating. Just ask anyone who knows me. I can never just say something good and leave it at that, I always have to follow it up with a negative to negate it. Confidence is going to be my biggest battle in this weight loss process. More so then hunger, deprivation or obstacles out of my control. I am simply not a confident person. Even the success of this blog freaks me out!

However, because I know this about myself, I think I have an edge over those who don’t realize that they have an overall lack of confidence. I just need to surround myself with positive and supportive people and those that intend to lift me up instead of tear me down.


Really good! My ONLY complaint is that my stomach hurts a bit each night. I know that’s the increase in veggie and fiber intake though and I assume that will subside soon. Even feeling bloated though, I feel thinner.

My Thoughts:

Things are going good. I’m doing well. I am getting to the point where I’m about to order my next shipment of food and I DEFINITELY will be ordering some different things. There are some items that I absolutely loved and a few (although not many), that I never want to order again. I think next month will be even more fun because I will have all my favorites on hand and there will be less uncertainty when I grab a meal from the pantry!

I’ve had the most disappointments with dinners. I’ve loved all breakfasts and all but one lunch. Dinners though, I’m noticing that I don’t enjoy ones that include mashed potatoes. I think I’m just too much of a mashed potato snob!

Overall though, I can’t believe how easy and effortless losing weight on Nutrisystem has been. Mentally I get tripped up sometimes, but the diet is too simple to screw up, LOL.

I feel 100% confident that at the end of these 4 months I will down a significant amount of weight (although I’m sure I won’t get to my goal, I have a long journey ahead of me!).

My Revelation

We went to Old Navy recently and I walked in and looked around the store in a way I haven’t looked around it in years. I looked at the clothes knowing that very soon, I will fit back into those clothes. I haven’t allowed myself to look at clothing like that in a long time. It just hurt too much. With Nutrisystem though, I know I’ll be back to fitting into Old Navy clothes in no time…maybe even within the next 4 months! Very exciting.


Colin is doing excellent. He makes his lunch for work the night before and has been seriously disappearing before my eyes. He has lost close to 6 lbs now and I am fairly certain all 6 have come from his stomach. Lucky guy!

He is more active and more willing to run around and do fun things as a family. I might be the heavier one, but I’ve ALWAYS been more active then my husband. Nowadays, I’d say we’re about equal. It’s been great!

Week 2 Results:

Heather -1.4 lbs

Colin -2.8lbs

  1. Last year I lost 20 lbs and I am back on a diet again. I will say that once you finally find the one you like its amazing. After you start reaching goals and feeling the difference its so much easier to keep going. It was the best feeling in the world for me when I lost weight, the confidence boost was HUGE!! I also like to say negative things to myself and it really really helped me realize that. You are doing Amazing Have fun and enjoy it!!

  2. I think you’re doing a fabulous job. I’m wondering how you keep up with meals for your kiddos. I have trouble cooking for myself and our son when my husband is out of town (which is often). What kind of tips can you offer to keep cooking good meals for us when it seems so time consuming to 1.5 🙂 I have a lot of foods that we’ve cooked and frozen, but even that seems time consuming and wasteful. It seems like we eat the same dish 5 or 6 times before we’ve finally finished it and by then it doesn’t taste so good anymore. I’m much more inclined to just hit the dollar menu on the way home rather than the freezer. thanks

  3. Welcome to the Nutrisystem family! We are so glad to hear that you both are enjoying the program 🙂 HUGS Meredith

  4. You are doing great, Heather! I hope you can find the confidence you need to see this all the way through. I’m sure you can! Like you said, just surround yourself with positive, supportive people. I’m certainly here if you ever need me. I may not be the MOST positive person ever, but I am about this. I love Nutrisystem!

    I have done pretty well with the food. I like the pastas the best. I’m like you, though, and can’t wait until our next order so I can order some more of my favorites like the Flatbread Pizza. I’ll be ordering at least 4 of those!!! I wish we could pick our frozen entrees too. Hopefully they’ll make that an option one day.

    Keep up the great work! You’ll be shopping at Old Navy again in NO TIME!

    1. Thank you LeeAnn, your support has already helped me more then you can know!

      I actually haven’t tried the flatbread pizza. Might try that one tonight!

  5. Can you tell me how much it is, including the food? I would really love to do it, but don’t think I can afford it. I have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Depression, so I’m on disability. I can hardly get any exercise at all and have put quite a bit of weight on in the last 15-16 years, especially since I have been out of work for the last 11 years. This seems so easy that I would love to try it!

    1. Well it varies depending on what program you are on. They are having a 50% off sale right now though! It’s not cheap, but it’s less then other…more drastic forms of weight control. Email me if you want to chat more: heather @
