Nutrisystem Week Four EMOTIONAL Update

I am receiving three consecutive 28-day programs in return for my honest review. All opinions are 100% that of my own and I look forward to sharing my Nutrisystem experience with you guys ! #NSnation #SparkleMeFit

Catch up on my previous Nutrisystem weekly updates and vlogs over here. 
I did it ! 

I have made it 4 whole weeks on Nutrisystem.

So how do I feel about the program so far ? 

It's works ! Plain and simple. This system provides all of the tools to be successful. 

This program takes the guess work out of successful dieting. With the 3 major meals of the day and protein shakes for in between that are provided. I really only have to add in my own drinks and some bonus foods to my meals. ( See my Week 2 update for more on that ) Heck Nutrisystem even send you desserts for the weeks after the Fast5

With the way nutrisystem is set up, and aside from the first week I do not feel like I am depriving myself of the foods I enjoy.

I am definitely more aware but not obsessive about what makes it in my body because I am reasonably limiting myself. Not totally cutting myself off but also not allowing myself to gorge either. 

I really feel like as long as you can fathom the idea of following a meal plan in general, you could be successful on this program. Even with a few mess ups, which could actually be either eating too little or too much, I honestly believe it all evens out by the end of the week. Just like last week, I was terrible about eating the provided dinner meals. I was more careful about what and how much I ate though. I also made sure to have  AT LEAST a small salad before I ate anything at dinner time to help curb my hunger and not over eat even if I really wanted to. 

Basically how my days go is a Nutrisystem breakfast and Nutrisystem lunch, a cheese stick for midday snack and dinner with my family. This schedule has left me feeling complacent. I have not been getting that I'm starving pit in my stomach and that's a major improvement since the first week . 

As for this weeks Nutrisystem foods I don't think I tried anything new. Mostly reruns - I did order next months food though !!! And I am SUPER excited about that. I have a feeling I will definitely be better about eating the Nutrisystem dinners when those arrive. I picked out what sounded like some bomb for com choices. 

This next week I think may be a bit tricky because even though I tried to spread out the foods I wasn't thrilled about I am still somehow left with like 6 lunch meal bars -- but that's next weeks news.

Nutrisystem is NOT sponsoring me during this process, meaning I an NOT being paid to do any of my blog posts or videos. They have provided the foods as part of the program but that is it !  All opinions as always are that of my own.


  1. I am not losing very much weight. I have to stop myself every night from not eating dessert. I need to exercise more and watch what I eat! Congrats on your weight loss. But it is very hard to lose weight when getting older.

  2. That is awesome that your are losing inches. I would love to try this in the near future. I just have to find a way to afford it.

  3. Great Job!! It's so exciting to see the scale AND the tape measure drop huh?! You're looking great!

  4. You are doing fabulous!! Keep it up, love!
