My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #2)

I honestly can't believe its already been two weeks, I almost forgot to write up this weekly weigh-in post, lol. I did have a point towards the end of the week where I got a little off-track. One single slice of pizza and one burger were used as a replacement on two occasions. I was still within my daily calorie intake of 1,100 - 1,300. I have never gone over while on Nutrisystem. I have been educating myself this week about food and calories and exercise. Apparently, burning more calories than you consume is ideal for losing weight. I thought I wouldn't have time to possibly do that, but worked out today (even though Monday is official the 1st day of the next Nutrisystem week) for an hour. I burned 503 calories with the EA Sports Active 2 game for the XBOX 360 Kinect (review coming next week). I figure if I can work out at least an hour a day I can burn off a good chunk of calories I consume in a day, as opposed to the 150-300 calories I was burning 3-4 days for the past 2 weeks. I'm going to make it a goal to do this daily or at least 6 days a week. I love the game, I got it Thursday the 28th and have burned over 2,500 calories already.

This past week I was able to taste some new Nutrisystem foods. Likes: Glazed Chicken Tenders, Salisbury Steak with Macaroni and Cheese, Cheese Tortellini, Creamy Fudge Bar. Dislike: Homestyle Pancakes, Three Cheese Pasta w/ Chicken. I also tried the Orange Creme Bar which I thought was O.K.. So far, the Three Cheese Pasta w/ Chicken is the ONLY meal I absolutely couldn't stomach, it disgusted me. As for my add-ins, Its still hard to eat 4 servings of veggies so I bought a bottle of V8-Juice, I couldn't stomach that either, go figure. However, I tried green beans this week and surprisingly don't hate them. Soda and coffee have been completely cut out of my life for now. I drink water, straight, or add Crystal Light Fruit Punch or Hawaiian Punch Grape and Lememberry Squeeze On-The-Go pouches. They are only 10 calories a pouch. I have noticed drinking this much water is clearing up my face (I used to occasionally get red dry areas on my cheeks or random bumps but don't have acne) and I don't get headaches much anymore. I just feel GREAT cutting the soda out.

This week has been great, even though I steered away a little towards the end of the week I am STILL within my daily calorie intake, which has consistently been below 1,300. My pants already are feeling looser and I can squeeze (very tightly, lol) into my old pants that are 4 sizes below my actual size. I look forward to putting them on in just a couple months! As I previously mentioned, I will be reviewing EA Sports Active 2 game for the XBOX 360 Kinect soon, its what I've been using to get my exercise in and its been wonderful. I got the game on Thursday the 28th and have burned over 2,500 calories already. I really push myself for EACH work out and it has been showing on the scale. Thanks to the people over at EatSmart, I now have the EatSmart Precision Premium Digital Bathroom Scale, now i get a precise amount of what I've lost. I will also be reviewing this great scale later on this week! :) Don't forget to Check out my entire Nutrisystem Journey and photos on Flickr!
