My Nutrisystem Journey Weeks 9-10 Surviving Easter and Curbing My Cravings


How was your Easter?  Typically, Easter is all about the food.  My family prepares a huge Easter dinner and we gather to indulge.  This year was different for me.  This year, I wasn't focused on food.  I didn't help with the preparation of the food, I didn't overindulge in the food and I didn't miss the food.

This year I channeled my energies into our church's annual Easter Egg Hunt.  Since I didnt' have to help with the cooking, I helped our church youth plan a banner Easter Egg hunt complete with face painting and a bounce house.  Not a huge fan of bounce houses but that's another story for another day.

We planned a HUGE Easter Egg Hunt and filled lots of plastic eggs with candy.
A few months ago, being surrounded by all that candy, I would've had one piece, then another piece and then another and then looked up to an empty bag. 

Truth is we all have our vices. Nutrisystem teaches us to eat to fuel our bodies and provides foods which are full of fiber and protein which help curb those cravings. 

When I'm craving chocolate, I can have a snack of Nutrisystem NutriChocolates, Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels, chocolate chip cookies or any of the Nutrisystem snack bars.  Each of which is a tasty way to curb my chocolate craving.

No chocolate cravings for me means the little ones get all the candy they can find and that's exactly as it should be.

In addition to the hunt, we had face painting, soccer, bounce house and a field of green grass to run around on.
Exhausted from the hunt
I had fun playing tag with some of the kids after the hunt.  So glad to see the kids running, playing and having a good time and happy to report not a single tear was shed.
On your mark, get set, GO!!!
I'm thrilled I didn't eat a single piece of Easter candy this year.  One small step for this blogging mama and one huge addition to the Easter candy pool for the kiddos.  *smile* Nutrisystem is helping curb my cravings and helping me lose weight!

I'm hoping to lose 50 lbs. and I am nearing the halfway mark.  *tosses confetti*
 
What about you?  What's your snack of choice?
