Losing 40 Before Turning 40

I am on a mission to drop 40 pounds before my 40th birthday next year.  To help me get there I decided to try Nutrisystem and so far it is going well. In one week I lost 4 pounds! I am so excited–only 36 more to go.  Thankfully my birthday is more than a year away so hopefully I will achieve my goal.  I will keep you updated on my progress.

The biggest thing to get used to is portion control. That is so my problem; eating way more than what I should at mealtime.  Nutrisystem does have everything perfectly proportioned for you and so far so good. If I can survive the first week I feel like I can survive for the whole 4o pounds.  Although sometimes this past week I have felt  like our dog Ashes had more in his bowl than I did in mine LOL. I am sure I will have to get used to eating less.

Wish me luck.  Thinking skinny thoughts,

    Congratulations on your decision. I hope you will post how you like the taste of the food, as well as your progress. I’ve been considering the diabetic version of the plan. Good luck!!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That is awesome. Four pounds is amazing! Keep up the great work.

    I konw, the portion sizes are a shocker. You never realize just how much we truly eat until the reality of what we SHOULD be eating is staring you in the face. I think EVERYONE eats way too much. Thinking about portion sizes just having one meal at a restaurant should in reality be shared with 3-4 people!

    I’m so happy for you!!!! You’ll reach your goal. I know you will!
