Amping Up My Weight Loss with Nutrisystem Week 1 (Fast 5+)

As a writer, we tend to put ourselves out there for our readers. Giving them a little insight on our lives, and sharing things that others can relate to. Over the past few years I found myself at a cross roads when it came to my health, and my biggest obstacle was my weight. I can remember when I was younger, in my teens and early twenties, where I could eat and drink what I wanted to, and not think twice about it. I found this habit followed me, and after having kids, I realized that those once careless times when it came to food, were over. I gained ALOT of weight, and that weight did not come off as easy as it once did. In fact, as the years creep up on me, I find it harder and harder to loose the weight, yet easier and easier to gain it.

I have tried a few plans to change and loose weight, and after looking over my options and figuring out what would work, I realized that having a weight loss plan where I had a bit more guidance put in place was the way to go. So, over the next few months, I will be sharing a journey, one that I am very excited to take and one I will be sharing with my readers.

The journey is one that is being provided by Nutrisystem, and even though I will be putting myself out there by sharing my journey with my readers, I want to also show others, who find themselves in a similar situation when it comes to weight loss, that it can be done!

I started my Nutrisystem journey earlier this week, and to help with getting started and amping up my weight loss, I started with the Nutrisystem Fast 5+. I was pleasantly surprised to find the meals that were in the box, were ones that I have enjoyed. I also like that the shakes that come in the Fast 5+ box, are ones that help to prepare me for this journey, by helping to not only give me a boost of energy that I need in the day, but by also helping to curve my appetite. The tools that are included help for me to keep track of my progress, and also help to answer the questions I might have when it comes to foods and the water I need to consume each day.

Then aside from the foods and guides which have helped me get started, the most pleasant surprise I have had is where I found why this box is called the Fast 5+, because in this first week of starting the program, I found myself down not just 5 pounds, but a whopping 11 pounds!!!! This is a huge boost for me, giving me some confidence in knowing that I can do this! So be sure to check back every week, and also follow me on my various social networking outlets, to watch as I go through this journey and to also ask me any questions you might have about the Nutrisystem program and foods!

    I've tried diets off/on since I was a teenager. Keeping weight off is difficult, and it's hard to stay motivated. A plan like this provides all the tools necessary, and I love that the weight loss the first week was significant. Great Job! That's a definite plus and moral booster. Just what one needs on a diet. Good Luck!
