Nutrisystem Week 20! 5 months down!

I always start every post like “I can hardly believe it’s been xxx weeks on Nutrisystem”.

But it’s true!

And I can hardly believe it’s been 20 weeks on Nutrisystem! 5 months!

It’s definitely been 5 months of ups and downs, temptations and frustration but also 5 months of support, joy and good food!

We got back from Disney World this past Monday and now I’m fighting a bad Upper Respiratory Infection and Bronchitis.

I was pretty confident that I wasn’t going to gain anything during Disney World. Our hotel room was on the 3rd floor and I took the steps almost every time. I wish I had worn a pedometer but after doing some research it is said that on average you can walk up to 20,000 steps at Walt Disney World a day. And I believe it! My feet were so sore at the end of the day and many times I soaked them in the tub or the pool!

While I tried to eat sensibly, it didn’t always work out that way. We visited Via Napoli at Epcot and shared the cheesiest and most delicious pizza I have ever eaten!

I snacked on more soft pretzels that I care to mention. We were treated to a CANDY BAR! Oops, I wasn’t supposed to mention that!

I got to meet 3 other fabulous ladies that are doing the #NSNation program. We even got a picture of us together that I need to get up on here! Make sure to check out Barb of, Erica of Guide to Military Travel and  Kelly of Kelly’s Lucky You!

When I came home one of the first things I did was weigh myself. And I was so excited when I realized that I hadn’t gained ANYTHING! Amazing!

So I got right back on program. Back to my delicious breakfasts of Veggie Omelets and lunches of Chicken Quesadillas and dinners of good ol’ Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes!

And what happened when I weighed myself today?

I was down 5.3 pounds!

5.3?! Whoa! So what is total weight loss then?!

21.6 pounds!

I am finally past that 20 pound weight loss mark which gets me a second Nutribear! 😉

I thought I’d share a Before and After picture of 20 pounds. I have so much more to go but I’m proud of the 20 pounds and 3 jean sizes I have dropped!



So I can tell a bit of a difference! I can’t wait until I have one of those really drastic After pictures! 😉

Make sure you check in with my buddies Heather over at OurKidsMom and Heather at Living on Love and Cents! They are doing a fantastic job too!!

I have some new Nutrisystem buddies that could use some cheering on, too! Please visit Sara at “Deal”icious Mom and Xenia from Thanks Mail Carrier as they share their Nutrisystem journey.

    Yay! Go Melissa! Vacation is so hard and you did great! I always have to find the balance…no use in denying yourself a treat every once in a while.

    20 lbs is an amazing accomplishment! I can’t wait to get back on my program once baby comes.
