Nutrisystem Nation Week 12 Results and Nutribear 30 Photostory
Happy Fourth of July!
We’ve got a lot to cover today, when it comes to my Nutrisystem journey. First, you’re going to meet a new member of the family, Nutribear 30, Community.
Then, you get to see the results of my week 12 weigh-in.
And finally, a look at my body measurements since week 8.
So, stay tuned for some fun.
As you may remember, Nutrisystem gives their members Nutribears as a gift for reaching certain weight loss levels. You’ve already met Pound and Commitment. Since I hit a 30 pound loss a few weeks ago, I got a new bear.
Meet Community, the Nutribear 30. He’s bright, sky blue.
As always, Apartment Gnome, the unofficial mascot of Makeup Files, had to approve Community’s arrival. Well, AG pulled me aside and told me he was feeling really overwhelmed. He’s not used to all these animals roaming about. Luckily, Community was on his best behavior (though I can’t say the same about the other two. Troublemakers).
Remember a few weeks ago I was lamenting over how I wanted even more romantic comedies than I already had? Well, since then, I’ve picked up some more to add to my stash. He’s Just Not That Into You, Class and Secret Admirer (I got it for the latter because my VHS copy of Secret Admirer finally died), The Holiday, Becoming Jane and Definitely, Maybe.
Community wanted to watch them all.
Okay, I’ve really been craving lemon bars, especially with all of this nice weather. So, I found a low-calorie lemon bar recipe online at Cooking Done Light. After all, I’m not going to be on Nutrisystem forever. I need to figure out how to live low-cal all the time.
Community watched while I made these low-calorie lemon bars from scratch at my mom’s house. My mom got that “Fran” apron at a garage sale last year. Pretty hilarious. No, no one in our family is named Fran.
Community wanted to eat mine, but I told him to stick with raw fish like a good bear.
I’m getting into uncharted territory here, people. See, I moved to Montana almost 4 years ago, and I’ve never weighed this little in my time here. Granted, I still have over 80 pounds to lose, but it still feels good that I’m now at a weight that I haven’t been in years.
Body measurements, y’all.
I measure various parts of my body every 4 weeks. Here are the changes from week 8 to now:
- Upper Arms: –0.5 inches (-2.75 inches total)
- Chest: –0 inches (-6 inches total)
- Waist: –2 inches (-2.75 inches total)
- Hips: –0.5 inches (-3.5 inches total
- Thighs: –0 inches (-2.5 inches total)
I’ve lost 3 inches in the past 4 weeks and 17.5 inches total.
Even though there weren’t big numbers this time around, I’m happy that my loss has slowed down for my chest and sped up for my waist. That’s what I like to see.
Here are my previous posts and weekly results:
- Week 1: –6.4 pounds
- Week 2: –2.4 pounds (-8.8 total)
- Week 3: –3.8 pounds (-12.6 total)
- Week 4: –2.4 pounds (-15.0 total)
- Week 5: –3.0 pounds (-18.0 total)
- Week 6: –1.6 pounds (-19.6 total)
- Week 7: –3.4 pounds (-23.0 total)
- Week 8: –1.0 pounds (-24.0 total)
- Week 9: –2.6 pounds (-26.6 total)
- Week 10: –3.4 pounds (-30.0 total)

I hope you’re having a great Independence Day!
