Nutrisystem Update: #NSNation

It has been several weeks since my last Nutrisystem update, so I wanted to let you know how things have been going since the holidays. I am not going to lie, being on any type of diet plan during the holiday season is hard. I made some bad food choices during this time and gained back a few pounds. But, I am not going to be hard on myself. This is a journey and I am going to make mistakes along the way. I like to tell myself that quote from Anne of Green Gables, “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.

I have been following the Nutrisystem plan the way that I should this entire week and I feel so much better. Isn’t it amazing that when you make bad food choices you really do feel awful? And, the more bad food that I eat, the more food I want to eat. That is one of the things that I just love about Nutrisystem. Not only does it teach you how to have portion control, but it allows you to eat real food. What other diet plan out there lets you eat cinnamon rolls, pizza, pasta, ice cream and other yummy foods and lose weight while doing so? You eat this food and you lose the weight. It really is that simple!

Staying focused is my goal this week! I have to continually remind myself that weight loss is a marathon towards your goals and not a sprint. Staying focused means being prepared for the unexpected. Nutrisystem is preparing me for healthy and attainable goals after I finish the program.

Stay tuned as I continue on my journey! A huge thank you to Nutrisystem for allowing me to continue with the program.

I know that it has been a few weeks since my last Nutrisystem update. I wanted to take a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of the holidays to share a recent update and to share with you a few thoughts that I have been pondering on lately.

First of all, let me begin by saying that being on a weight-loss plan this time of the year is definitely not for the faint of heart. I am not going to lie. First of all Thanksgiving and now Christmas! While I did not totally veer off-track from my Nutrisystem plan, I have made a few bad food choices along the way and I have not been as consistent with my water intake. I am sharing my honesty with you so that you can see I am human and will make mistakes. BUT, I am back on track this week! The last time I got on the scale I was down 12 pounds. I am going to wait until Monday to get back on the scale to see where I am. I have a goal of at least 20 pounds so I am still on track for my goal! I love the quote above from Bo Jackson, “Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.” My goal is a high one and I know that I am going to achieve it!

Nutrisystem is such a great program and one of my favorite things is that all the food prep is pretty much already done for you. You don’t have to think about what you will eat for breakast, lunch or dinner. The only thing that you have to do is to decide which delicious entree that you will eat for those meals. (and your snacks in-between) Oh, and don’t forget that you get to eat a delicious snack each night! Score!! Look what I had for dinner tonight! My Nutrisystem Chicken Parmesan entree and roasted zucchini in the oven. So delicious and filling!

Stay Focused- Remember, weight loss is a marathon towards your goals and not a sprint. Staying focused means being prepared for the unexpected. Nutrisystem is preparing me for healthy and attainable goals after I finish the program. I am finding myself making wise food choices when I have to eat out or having a flex meal at home. I am proud of myself for making these choices and it makes me feel so good!

Nutrisystem Update: 10 Pounds Down: Halfway There! #NSNation #ad

It has been so busy around here lately that I forgot to give a Nutrisystem update last week! I am so happy to report that I am halfway to my goal of 20 pounds. I have officially lost 10 pounds! I am really feeling fantastic and have also lost a lot of inches! I even had to go down a pant size! Woohoo!

It is so hard for me to believe how quickly the days are flying by! Thanksgiving is next week! I am still thoroughly enjoying the program and feeling fantastic! One of the most important things that I am still learning…..not to compare myself with others. Everyone loses weight differently and changes come in all shapes and sizes. I am my own worst critic when it comes to my body and how I feel about myself. But, this program makes me feel good about myself and how I am feeling these days! 

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Nutri-moments so far in my journey. For me, I love it when I am out to eat and look at the menu and make good choices! I try to eat items that are healthy and that compare with the Nutrisystem program. Just knowing that I am making a good and healthy choice makes me feel like a million bucks! Even the small moments like making the choice to exercise when I don’t feel like it count in this journey. In fact, I feel like those small moments are really the biggest moments in my journey!

My husband has been such a rock of support to me in this journey and is always encouraging. He is constantly telling me how beautiful that I look and how proud he is of me. This is the fuel that I need to continue on with my journey! We all need those people in our lives who are our “anchors” I am so grateful!

Stay tuned, I will be sharing my photo with you of my progress so far in my journey!

The cinnamon rolls and chicken sandwiches are some of my favorites!

Well, I am into my full third week of Nutrisystem! I can hardly believe how quickly the days are flying by! I am still thorougly enjoying the program and feeling fantastic! More on my results later, but first, I want to share with you some things that I am learning on this journey. One of the most important things is that I am learning…..not to compare myself with others. Everyone loses weight differently and changes come in all shapes and sizes. I am my own worst critic when it comes to my body and how I feel about myself. But, this program makes me feel good about myself and how I am feeling these days! I am the hero to my story.

With Nutrisystem, I am learning to make healthy choices and those choices are paying off. I am feeling so wonderful and I know that I am making great choices for my lifestyle. I walk 5 times a week and that walking paired with Nutrisystem makes for a perfect match! In fact, I find myself wanting to exercise each day!

How is my progress so far? The scale for me is moving a little slower than I would like. I am down 6 pounds. BUT, the inches are coming off. I have lost about 3 inches overall and my clothes are getting so much looser! To me, that is a major victory!

What are some of my challenges? For me, I struggle to get in 64 oz. of water each day. I have found that adding zero calorie flavorings really does help a lot. I think that the water consumption is key! I am really making it my goal this week to get all the water in each day.

Overall, I am so excited with how I am doing and the progress that I am making. I have to remind myself to take each day one step at a time. Weight Loss is A Marathon, Not A Sprint!

My Second Week of Nutrisystem #NSNation #ad

Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 3 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

Last week was my second full week of Nutrisystem and I wanted to give an update on my progress thus far. I am loving the Nutrisystem plan and excited that I can now add PowerFuels and SmartCarbs into the mix of things!

Aside from the delicious Nutrisystem meals that I am being provided, I get to add in 3 PowerFuels and 1 SmartCarb each day. In addition, I eat at least 4 servings of veggies AND I get to have a snack/dessert at night! Any diet program that allows you to have dessert is a winner in my book! At this point, Nutrisystem also wants you to start adding in your own Flex Meals. These are meals you make on your own using easy Nutrisystem guidelines—to help teach you healthy habits so you can maintain your weight loss after you reach your goal. I love how Nutrisystem prepares you for after you are done with the program. This is a key factor to me!

This past week I had 2 Flex Meals. Hubby and I attended a conference through our church and had to eat out 2 times over the weekend. I feel that I did pretty well! I had mixed veggies, a salad, 3 meatballs and just a little bit of pasta. I felt like it was right on point with what I would have received in Nutrisystem entree and I feel great about my choice. The next morning we had breakfast out and I chose 1 sausage patty, some scrambled eggs and 1 pancake. While I didn’t know the exact calorie count of the items, I feel good about my choice. It is all about moderation as well and I love how the Flex Meals prepares you for that.

Now you may be asking yourself, “What is the difference between this part of the Nutrisystem plan and the Turbo Takeoff?” If you remember from my post HERE, I explained how Turbo Takeoff is really like a bootcamp for your body to prepare you for what is to come. With Turbo Takeoff, you only eat what is in your box. With this part of the plan, I can add in my own grocery additions in the form of SmartCarbs and PowerFuels.

What are PowerFuels and SmartCarbs and how do they play a role in the Nutrisystem plan? Nutrisystem meals and snacks were created with the optimal balance of nutrients to keep you feeling satisfied as you lose weight; however, because it’s important for to learn—and practice—healthy eating habits so you can sustain your weight loss for life, it is important to add in these fresh grocery foods into your diet.

SmartCarbs– The term “SmartCarbs” refers to a specific group of carbohydrates that are nutrient-rich and lower on the Glycemic Index. These carbs are packed with fiber so they are digested more slowly, helping you feel fuller longer. With the plan that I am on, you are allowed one SmartCarb per day. This will be items that are at least 80-120 calories per serving and 1 gram of fiber. A few of my favorite SmartCarbs include fruit, hummus and whole wheat toast or 100 calorie sandwich thins.

PowerFuels– PowerFuels consist of high quality proteins that contain essential amino acids and healthy fats. It takes longer for your body to digest these foods, so they help you stay satisfied. One serving of PowerFuels should contain 80 – 120 calories and at least 5 gram of protein. Some of my favorite PowerFuels include 100 calorie Greek yogurt, cheese sticks, peanut butter and almonds and eggs.

I am learning so much about myself through the help of Nutrisystem. I have been adding my walking routine back into the mix of things and it really does help me to focus on my goal even more. I feel so empowered and am so grateful for this opportunity to partner with Nutrisystem to focus on getting me back to a healthy weight and to feel better about myself.

Now, while the scale may not be moving as fast as I would like for it to, it is moving at a healthy pace. I have lost 5 pounds so far. BUT, my clothes are already starting to fit much better! This is so exciting to me! It is all about getting healthy! I also feel that I tend to lose weight rather slowly so this can sometimes be discouraging. BUT, I am not discouraged because I feel great about what I am doing! Stay tuned as I continue this amazing journey and follow along with me!

My Sweet Savings Nutrisystem Update! 16 Pounds Are Gone – Thanks to #NSNation!

Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 3 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

I forgot to post a Nutrisystem update last week. We have been crazy busy and dealing with sickness in the house. I have some exciting news though as am super excited as I am down 16 pounds! I actually had to go to the doctor this week and typically I HATE stepping on the scale. I was curious to see if my weight loss would be different than my scale at home but it was right on target and I am down 16 pounds since I began my Nutrisystem journey back in July. I know that I have mentioned this before, but this is the only program that works for me. It keeps me accountable and I know that what I am eating is real food. I also love how we get to add in our own foods to make the program a success! 

My Nutrisystem journy is actually coming to a close. I was hoping to be at the 20 pound weight loss mark by now but I am not disappointed in the least at my success. I have around 6 more pounds to go until I am at my goal weight and I know that I can maintain my eating lifestyle. Nutrisystem has taught me not to overeat, how to control portions, and most of all how to love vegetables and water. I am truly grateful for this experience! 

Stay tuned because next week I will be sharing some BEFORE and AFTER photos of myself. I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite motivational quotes that I have been an encouragment to me along my journey!

 Here are some of my meals that I have thoroughly enjoyed!

NS Chicken and Beans with Sauteed Veggies

NS Italian Flatbread Pizza with Veggies and Kale Chips on the side

NS Waffles with Natural Peanut Butter

It has been a busy Summer for family and I! My oldest son is back in school and Brady, my 3 1/2 year old is keeping me super busy at home! I am so thankful for Nutrisystem and how it has kept me on track and eating the right way during the busy Summer months. 

I have some exciting news to share! I am now down 12 1/2 pounds! I can’t begin to tell you just how good that I feel! Nutrisystem really is making a difference in how I think about food and really every bite that I put in my mouth these days. We have been out to dinner now several times while I have been on the program and each time I make wise choices and come away feeling great. I am also walking at least 5 days a week and it makes a HUGE difference in how I feel overall. 

I love many things about Nutrisystem but I am really learning how to make decisions that are going to affect my eating habits when I am no longer on the program. I also love the fact that Nutrisystem is real food! Notto mention you get dessert each night! Overall, the food is absolutely delicious and I am finding fun and unique ways to incorporate my veggies each day! 

Here are a few of my meals in photos over the last couple of weeks….

Nutristyem Turkey Sausage Pizza loaded with veggies. I also added a side of Carrot Fries. (stay tuned for the recipe here on the blog for the Carrot Fries!)

Nutrisytem Rotini and Meatballs with Sauteed Veggies

Nutrisystem Chili With Beans over Zucchini Noodles

Nutrisystem Pasta Fagioli Soup with Sauteed Veggies

Nutrisystem Ice Cream Sandwich (these are so yummy!) I just love a diet plan that allows you to eat Ice Cream!

My Sweet Savings Nutrisystem Update #nsnation

Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 3 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is once again time for my weekly Nutrisystem update! I am so excited to let you know that as of this week I am down 9 pounds and feeling fabulous! I can also tell that I am continuing to lose inches because my clothes are fitting so much better and some things are even loose on me!

A couple of things that have been helping me with my weight loss journey is Walking at least 5 days a week and my Water intake. I have been trying to walk at least 2 miles on those days and I drink at least 2 liters of water. Those 2 things seem to be key for me. It also helps when I eat lots of green veggies like Broccoli, Green Beans and Salad Greens.

I am still enjoying all of the yummy Nutrisystem food and honestly, I fell full most of the time. Here are just a few of my yummy dishes from the past week. One of my favorite ways to make sure that I get my veggies in each day is with my Veggetti Vegetable Spiralizer. This gadget spiralizes veggies like Squash and Zucchini into noodles. I really feel like I am eating pasta when I make my veggies this way but it is SO much healthier! I highly recommend the Veggetti like the one seen HERE if you do not already have one. It is also a FUN way for your kiddos to get their veggies in each day.

 

Sauteed Squash and Zucchini with Peppers & Onions

Nutrisystem Turkey Ham and Cheese Omelette with Sauteed Mushrooms, Onions and Tomatoes

Nutrisystem Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast with Sauteed Zucchini, Tomatoes and Peppers

Please stay tuned as I continue on my amazing journey to a healthier and better me!

Nutrisytem Update: A Few of My Favorite Things…. #nsnation #spon

 

I am super excited to be 31 pounds thinner and healthier since August of last year thanks to Nutrisystem! My journey with Nutrisystem has been such a good experience and I am thrilled to share it with others when they ask me how I lost my weight. 

I thought that I would share with you all some of my favorite Food Items on the Nutrisytem program. I honestly enjoy most of the food on the program and there have only been a few things that I did not care for. 

The Cinnamon Rolls at Breakfast time are to die for. Let me tell you, they do not even taste like something that you should be eating any diet program! 🙂 

I also love the Lunch Fudge Graham Bars. I usually eat a HUGE salad with chicken or tuna for lunch then have one of these as my Nutrisystem lunch. These are to die for and they give me the chocolate fix that I need for the afternoon! 🙂

The Nutrisystem Chili and Beef Stew are quite tasty for dinner. I usually pair these with a veggie and am very satisfied and full. 

Speaking of being satisified, one of the big things that Nutrisystem has taught me is to stop eating when I am full. For many of us, we keep eating becuase we feel that we must finish what is on our plates at that time. If you stop eating when you are full this will cause you to not over indulge and you are also training your body and mind. 

I still have a few pound left to lose, but I know that they will come off with continual help and support that I gain from Nutrisytem.

Nutrisytem Update: I Was Called “Skinny”! #nsnation #spon

It has been a little while since I updated you on my Nutrisystem progress. I have to tell you, for whatever reason, these last 10-15 pounds are not coming off without a fight! 🙂

Since I started this life-changing program back in August of 2012, I am proud to tell you that I am down 28 pounds! My goal is to lose at least another 10 pounds by my birthday on March 23. If you are new to my story, when I started Nutrisystem I was in a size 16. I am now thrilled to be back in my size 10 clothing! In the past several weeks I have actually had people call my “skinny”! 🙂 Do you know what that does for your confidence level? It makes me want to jump up and down! I also love the fact that I am so much more halthy these days with those unwanted pounds off of my body.

I have confidence that I can lose these last few stubborn pounds, it is just going to take a little bit more will-power on my part. I have kind of slacked off on drinking all of my water each day (you are suppposed to drink at least 64 oz. per day) and that really does make a difference!

Stay tuned, I am determined to get these last few pounds off and I will keep you update on my progress along the way!
