At the Finish Line..w/ The Race of Life To Go; Nurtrisystem Week 16

Never would I have thought I could continue a weight loss/ maintenance program for 4 months! Nutrisystem has been an interesting journey of pounds lost, calories cut, and a new way of eating. For the past month, I have been trying to incorporate regular food choices into my diet, and I can say I have done pretty good! I have dramatically cut out starches, and red meat, and pork. Now, its lots of chicken and some fish.

Even though I only lost 2 to 3 pounds every 2 or 3 weeks, I can say I have not gained and have been able to maintain. I'm steady at 150 pounds, as I had started at 167. I am so happy and really can't explain how great it is to know I can maintain my weight, and even lose a few pounds, eating what I want, but not a lot of it. I'm still fitting in all of my clothes I could only now fit because of Nutrisystem, and they are not getting snug. That's how I know I'm not gaining, which is a true feat.

Nutrisystem has really changed my life and I still incorporate my favorites, like the frozen dinners of Glazed Chicken and Rice, Turkey Pepperoni Pizza, Steak & Cheese, and Fudge Ice Cream. Yes, that's how I was eating, and it was all Nutrisystem. I still will incorporate my NS dinners in with my regular eating, and that will help out allot, but all willing I will definitely try to stay on the journey of healthier living.

Signed and Concealed! 6 Of The Best Concealers For Dark Circles | Second City Style

If it's one thing that I have with me at all times, it is a concealer!... Most days I get 'wow, you have such beautiful skin'... "Oh well geez thanks", and thank you concealer! Yes, I must have concealer everyday, to hide the darkness under my eyes, and yes, even to spot conceal. I can make do with just concealer and powder, but I do need all my fixin's... ha!

If we are not getting lines, and wrinkles, we may have bags from a late night, or just hereditary under eye circles that never go away no matter what. So, because I am one of these people,
I have tried many concealers not only for me but for my clients, and have listed some of my favorites. Check out my article on Second City Style Signed and Concealed; 6 of The Best Concealers for Dark Circles!

Still getting Skinny! Nutrisystem Week 15

Here I am almost coming up on my month on Nutrisystem, and honestly I didn't think I could do it this long. Yes, I have been replacing some NS Meals with my own, because hey that's what I'm going to have to do when I'm no longer on NS, so it has been working.

I finally weighed myself after not weighing myself for a few weeks, because I just knew I wasn't losing any weight. I had, had a few cheat days, but I had been making a conscious effort to stay on the same calories as I would with NS. However. to my surprise one morning when I stepped on the scale it said I had lost 2 pounds. I thought it was an inaccurate reading so I weighed myself again twice, and to my surprise it said the same thing. I think I was more than excited, especially because I didn't think I would continue to lose, but more so, now I know I can live a healthy diet, of maintaining my proportions, and still lose.

This gave me so much hope for the months to come. As, I finish my NS program, I can say it has really helped me in my lifestyle changes, not only for me, but for my family. I want to live healthy, and I want them to live healthy. The example comes from me first, so I'm on a mission!
