My Nutrisystem Journey Comes to an End..

I can't believe my journey has finally come to an end.

The ending fell at the worst time for me, because as you may have seen, I left for vacation this past week. During travel, on the road, I didn't follow my diet - I was really careful when we ate though; I picked healthier choice options, and felt pretty confident, considering that it was my first time on a road trip, and trying to follow a diet.

I'm still on vacation now, but for my first couple days, brought my last bit of food.
I did stray a bit, when my grandma wanted me to try old things I used to have when I lived up here, and my aunt wanted me to try some of her cooking. I've definitely kicked up my exercise amount though, because my 15 year old cousin keeps me so active, so it all worked out.

Throughout my journey, I have lost.. officially... 50.8lbs. I had another gain, but considering what I've done this week, I am okay with a small 0.4lb gain. Still at that -50 mark!!! :)!
I know I promised before and after pictures, and don't worry! They will be coming in about a week! I wanted to put them in this post, but before I left forgot to email myself my before picture, which is on my other computer at home.  So I won't have access to get it until then. But I promise they will be up right after I get home - I'm really nervous about revealing them, but excited as well, so you can all see how far I've come! 

My favorite meals during my whole journey:

Breakfast - The Breakfast Burrito:

Lunch - The Italian Style Wedding Soup:

Dinner - The  Chicken and Dumplings:

Dessert - The Thin Mint Crisp Bar:
Protein Drink - Vanilla:

Sometimes you don't like every little bit of food, but once you find your favorites, you really come to love them!

If you are trying to start your own weight-loss journey, I would highly recommend trying out Nutrisystem - Even if it's just for 1 month. Nutrisystem has completely changed my life, and is now helping me change my families lives.

Stay tuned for before and after pictures :)!

  1. You are a super hero. A 50lb loss is something to really celebrate! I think you ought to get yourself a new outfit.


  2. Congrats! Your journey has been interesting and educational to follow. We all grow up and fall into eating habits. With youth, I hardly thought about 'healthy eating' at all though with each year I more understood the importance. Diets are fads unless they address lifestyle issues. And yes, the healthier choice is what we all need to make every single day. A .4 lb change while on vacation faced with family cooking, girl you did outstanding!

  3. Congratulation on losing 50lbs!! That's hard to do so I hope you're very proud of yourself!!! Totally understand being nervous posting pictures of yourself but you're a beautiful woman and should show off all your hard work!
