NutriSystem, Week 7

Our blast of mild Western Canadian weather has taken another bitter turn for the worst. With the cold weather, comes my need for comfort food, to keep the chills at bay and beat the winter blahs. This has been the time that I am thankful to be eating warm, comforting and delicious Lasagnas, Chili’s and Soups from NutriSystem.

So far, I really like the majority of the meals that NurtiSystem offers, just on their own. Yet it’s good to know that you can add a couple of ingredients and change up the meal if you want to. Myself, I have grown a little tired of putting the Chicken Salad Entree on lettuce for lunch. At the Recipe Center {at}, I got a great recipe for Tomato Stuffed with Chicken Salad. Using simple ingredients and the Chicken Salad Entree from NutriSystem, I can change up my lunch and try something new.

Speaking of which, though Canadians primarily use the .ca website, anyone can utilize the great resources at {the US site}. Not only is there a great community behind the forums, where you can read stories, get support, share tips and swap recipes – but there is great online weight tracking tools, videos and more on the .com site. I urge you to take a browse and see the tremendous support that NutriSystem offers!

So, it seems that after losing 17 lbs on the NutriSystem Program thus far, this week I seem to have hit a plateau in my weight loss. Normally this would have been so discouraging, I would lose sight of my goal. And that’s where I have always failed. Thanks to the support and encouragement from family, friends, you readers and the motivation from the forums – I know I can get through this. I love the fact that I can post my successes and struggles on my blog and gain such valuable feedback and personal stories – I am not alone. And if you are also doing your own weight loss challenge – you are not alone. No longer will plateaus get the best of me – I’ll keep at it until I jump over that hurdle.

Have any tips for overcoming my plateau?
Increase exercise or wait until it passes?

Week 7 results: -0 lbs
Total weight loss to date: -17 lbs

  1. That recipe for the Chicken Salad looks amazing! I know I am having a little bit of trouble this week too….I gained one pound….weird. As far as a plateau, trying changing your exercise routine maybe? Instead of increasing, do something completely different (different DVD workout or equipment at the gym). Not sure that helps but I am noticing that I need to change things up a bit too on the exercise front.
