Week 46 on Nutrisystem…Maintaining Is A Whole New Beast! #NSNation #Ad

O_64b0fea1b7e98c5c5b71df2f84ff768cnutrisystem_logo

What an incredible journey this has been so far!  Week 46 on Nutrisystem is here and I’m so ready to tackle this new week!  As I enter the maintenance phase, it’s a whole new beast trying to figure out exactly what works for me.  Each person and their metabolism are different and will need different things to maintain, just the same as losing weight.  I have been adding in additional portions which worked for the first week, but I was surprised to step on the scale and see that this past week I’ve lost a pound.  I had a particularly busier week than usual so I’m realizing that I need to fluctuate what I eat based on my activity, which can be a little tricky but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it.

I’m still eating the Nutrisystem foods as I learn to maintain…it will help me get through the holiday season before I totally go on my own to maintain.  I’m SUPER glad I made this decision, especially today.  On rough days I always find myself wanting candy, particularly bite-size candy bars that are easy to pop in and eat.  I found a great trick that helps me get through these cravings while still staying completely on plan.  I like to cut the lunch bars into small chunks so they are just the same size as those little bite-size candies.  Because the lunch bars taste just like a candy bar anyway, it’s a perfect compromise to satisfy my cravings without destroying all of my hard work.  As I (unfortunately) mark the 5 year anniversary of a friends murder today, I found myself having those same old cravings.  I went to my go-to trick to help quiet the candy cravings and I realized I’d never shared this trick with you all!  If you’re struggling to get over the sugar cravings on rough days I really recommend this trick!  You’ll eat the bar much slower, feel fuller, and feel like you’re indulging without straying off plan one bit.

I can’t wait to see how Nutrisystem helps me through the holidays, stay tuned for weekly check-ins!
