Nutrisystem Week 20: Weight Loss & Sickness


It is now week 20 (wow 5 months!) on the Nutrisystem program.  Time sure flies when you are eating delicious, low calorie meals!   I have to admit, this week has been rough.  My family and myself have been plagued with sickness after sickness.  Being sick can sure put a dent into your healthy living regime.  For one, when I am not feeling well I want to "heal" myself with food.  They call it comfort food for a reason, right?  Well, there definitely were times this week I comforted myself with some chocolate, a couple of cookies and that night filled with Toasted Raviolis.  Food Happens.  The important part is to pick yourself back up and keep at it!


 This week was not ALL bad, it was actually very easy to stay on plan for the most part.  Nutrisystem was a lifesaver because who wants to cook a meal when you are busy taking care of sick kids?  It was such a relief to be able to just grab a quick meal on the go and to know that it is low calorie.  Even though I did not stick to exactly to the plan, I did not gain weight.  So yay for that!

Now back to taking care of sick kids, I hope for better news next week.

Weekly Weight Loss: 0 pound


Total Weight Loss: -15 pounds  


Weight Loss Goal for Next Week: -1 pound

  1. My philosophy when you get sick with a cold is to wash it out of you. I drink water, green tea, and orange, apple, grape, or other citrus juices. Eating is fine. Soups are always a good choice. Ultimately washing the cold out of your system is the goal. A good nights rest also helps a lot too. Just washing it out of you as fast as possible.

  3. Don't be so hard on yourself. When sick your body does need the good stuff to get better. Getting back to your diet is the most important thing and you sound like that will be easy enough.

  4. Good job not gaining while fighting sickness in the house. I usually end up binge eating chocolate when life goes nuts lol

  8. Oh you make it sound so easy. The part that appeals to me is the "having a meal ready for on-the-go" - sounds devine. I am seriously considering Nutrisystem, not sure if I can invest and commit though :/

  9. It is hard to stick to a diet all the time. You have to allow yourself moments to enjoy the foods you try to avoid. If I do not allow myself to indulge every now and then, I find I end up eating a bag of cookies instead of a couple.
