Nutrisystem Update #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.

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 resulsts 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 SmarCarb 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 sauage 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! 17.5 Pounds Are Gone! #nsnation

Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 4 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

I wanted to give you all an update on my Nutrisystem journey. It has been such a fantastic experience and I am loving my results! At this point I have lost 17.5 pounds and am feeling Fantastic! Not only have I lost weight, but I have gained confidence with how I carry myself and how I feel about my appearance. 

I am so thankful for the opportunity that Nutrisystem has given me and the ability to continue on with this journey. I am so close to my goal weight and need to lose about 7 more pounds. I know that this is a crazy time of the year with lots of goodies and fattening foods but I am determined to reach my goal! 

I also wanted to share with you some exciting things that have happened in regards to my Nutrisystem journey. Do you ever dread going to the Dr.'s office because you just know that you will have to get on the scale? Well typically that is me. However, when I went to the Dr.'s office last week and saw the number I was overjoyed with excitement! I did not dread looking at the number and felt confident in the number on the scale! Also, I have recently gone shopping and found that I am comfortably in a size 10 bottom! Score!! Before Nutrisytem I was in size 14 bottoms! Here is a picture that my hubby recently took of me. I still have a little way to go, but overall I feel great about where I am right now!

My Sweet Savings Nutrisystem Update! I'm Down 14 Pounds & Feeling Great!

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 am so excited that after just over 2 months on Nutrisystem I have lost 14 pounds! I love Nutrisystem not only for the delicious food, but also for how the program makes me feel overall. The Nutrisystem program keeps me feeling full all day long and I love all of the vegetables that I am eating and the water that I am drinking. I really feel so much more healthy these days and I know that I am looking better as well!

I wanted to share with you a couple of my favorite meals from this past week. The Nutrisystem Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast with Sauteed Veggies and Nutrisystem Pizzas are so yummy. I love to add tons of veggies to my meals and they keep me feeling full too! 

One of the things that I often have to remind myself along this weight-loss journey is that it is not a Marathon to the finish but rather a sprint. I tend to lose weight a little bit slower than others, so sometimes I can get discouraged. I love the quote above as it really portrays how I feel. I am proud of myself for the goals that I have accomplished so far and every step that I have taken. I can't wait to reach my next goal which is 20 pounds! I know that I can do it! 

I am also happy to say that I am fiitting back into size Smalls & Mediums in Blouses and my size 12 pants and skirts and getting loose on my. Size 10 bottoms here I come! 

Stay tuned as I continue on my amazing journey with Nutrisystem! Want to join me and lose weight and get healthy on Nutrisystem? Join today by calling (1-888-853-4689) or by visiting (http://www.nutrisystem.com/nsblog)

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.

I totally forgot to put update you all last week regarding my Nutrisystem Weight loss journey! This has been a crazy couple of weeks for me as we prepare to send Drew back to school, last minute trips, and all the fun that the end of the Summer-time brings! With all of the being said, I have not faltered on my weight loss journey and am still going strong! At my last weigh in, which was last week, I am down 6 1/2 pounds! BUT, I can tell that I am losing inches as my clothes are fitting so much better these days!

One of the things that has helped me along the way is to not weigh myself every day. Now I know that some folks may disagree, but for me it can be discouraging if I get on the scale every day and see no movement. It is so much more of a postive experience to me when I weigh in once a week. My next weigh in is this Sunday so I am crossing my fingers!

I started walking 2 miles a day 4-5 days a week and feel F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! I had Rotator cuff surgery 11 weeks ago so I still have to be very careful in the excercise department. Even on those days when I don't feel great, if I walk, it makes me feel so much better about myself!

My yummy Nutrisystem Turkey Sausage Melt with Sauteed Veggies

One of my favorite afternoon snacks! Hard-Boiled Egg and Fresh Grapes!

My freezer filled with yummy Nutrisystem foods!

Overall I am still really enjoying the food. There are just a few items that I don't care for everything else is amazing! Having dessert each night with this program makes me feel like I am cheating but I am not! It is all part of the plan! EmojiEmojiEmoji

Stay tuned for next week's update and I hope to post a picture soon so you can see some of my results so far!

My Favorite Nutrisystem Tips + 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.

I am well into my second week of the Nutrisystem program and have really been enjoying the program. The food is delicious and I love how the program shows you to have portion control in your diet. Instead of eating an entire bowl of ice cream, you will learn to become satisifed with just a few bites. Or, instead of indulging in an entire bag of chips, just have a few to be satisfied. One of the reasons that I love the Nutrisystem plan is the idea that all of your foods are perfectly portioned - this keeps you from overeating. I think this idea of portion control is really starting to stick in my mind!

I thought it would be fun to put together a list of some of my favorite tips that have helped me so far in my Nutrisystem journey so here they are! 

Prepare Ahead of Time- With the Nutrisystem program you should eat at least 4 servings of vegetables each day. I find that it is so much easier to get in my veggies when I am prepared and have everything cut up ahead of time. This allows me to have everything ready for a quick salad or snack. I also love to prepare hard-boiled eggs ahead of time so they are ready for me in the refrigerator when it is snack time!

Log all of your Food and Liquid Intake- Nutrisystem has a great app called Numi that allows you to track all of your food and water intake as well as manage your weight loss. There are some other cool features to the app so be sure and check it out! Logging your food each day really allows you to see how many calories that you are putting into your body and the foods that you are consuming for every meal and snack.

Get Creative With Your Veggies- I absolutely love Zucchini! One of my favorite things to do is to use my Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Slicer and make spiralized Zucchini noodles. I take my Nutrisystem entrees (particularly those with a tomato base) and place them on top of the Zucchini noodles. This is to die for! Get creative with your other veggie choices as well. I find that I am now enjoying veggies more than ever before.

Water, Water and More Water- Be sure to drink at least 64 oz. of water each day. Sometimes I feel like I spend a lot of my time in the bathroom with all the water that I am drinking, but water intake is so very important for weight loss. It also makes me feel so much better when I get all of my water in each day. You can also drink diet soda and products like Crystal Light on Nutrisystem, but WATER is the most important!

Dessert- I love that on the Nutrisystem program you get dessert every day! The desserts are amazing! You get everything from Ice Cream Sandwiches to Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fudgy Brownies and everything in-between! You almost feel guilty eating these things but it is all part of the plan! 

Contact your Nutrisystem Counselor with any questions or concerns - The Nutrisystem counselors are amazing! My counselor Stephanie has given me some fantastic advice so far and I have been implementing some of her ideas in my plan. The counselors are there for you and to support you along every way of this journey. 

Be Patient- What are my results so far? I am down 5 pounds and 2 inches off of my waist. I did not lose any this week, but my counselor told me not to be discouraged. My body is adjusting to all the changes and I should start to lose some more next week. I am noticing a difference in my clothing so that makes me feel really good! My hubby said that he can tell I am losing too so Woohoo! One thing that I try to tell myself daily is the fact that I did not put the weight on overnight so it is not going to come off overnight. It takes willpower and determination to continue on this amazing journey. I am so thankful for this opportunity and that I can make these positive changes in my life. 

Stay tuned and please continue to follow me as I strive for a better and healthier me!

My Nutrisystem Fast 5 Results! #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.


I can't believe that one week ago I started my Nutrisystem journey! If you remember from my post HERE, I started the program with the Fast 5 Kit. 

I am not going to lie. The first week was REALLY hard! Especially considering that we went on vacation from Thursday to Sunday of last week. There were so many times that I wanted to cave and have some of the snacks that my boys were having, but I am happy to say that I did not give in! I took all of my Nutrisystem food with me and thankfully the resort that we stayed at had a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator so that really helped me to stay on track! I took lots of raw vegetables to snack on with a Fat Free Low Calorie dressing to dip them in. I recently came across the Skinny Girl Dressings at Walmart and LOVE them! They are Sugar Free and Fat Free with only 5-10 calories for 2 Tablespoons. I also had my energiZING and Craving Crusher shakes so that really helped me to feel full and to have that chocolate fix that I needed each day!

So.........what are my results with the Fast 5? I am happy to tell you that I am down 5 pounds and 2 inches off my waist! Yes, you read that right! I had to remeasure my waist several times as I could not believe it! This makes the Fast 5 week totally worth it to see these results! 

Today I begin the next phase of my weight-loss journey which is the Nutrisystem My Way program. With this phase, you eat Nutrisystem meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner; however, you add in 4 servings of fresh vegetables 3 PowerFuels and One SmartCarb each day. AND, at night you get a Nutrisystem dessert! It is also very important to drink at least 64oz. of water daily. I could not wait to start the Nutrisystem My Way program today with this yummy Nutrisystem Cinnamon Roll! It was so divine!

Stay tuned as I will continue to update my amazing weight-loss journey with Nutrisystem! I can't wait to be a more fit and healthier me!

Day One of The Fast 5 Nutrisystem Program! #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.

I am super excited to share with you how my first day of the Fast 5 Nutrisystem Program went! If you are not familiar with the Fast 5 program, it is kind of like a One Week Bootcamp Program to get your body ready for the next step in the Nutrisystem journey. You stick to 3 meals a day, 64 oz. or more of water, 1 Energizing Shake & 1 Craving Crusher Shake. Then, you can add in unlimited amounts of Non-Starchy vegetables. You do need to make sure that you have at least 4 servings of vegetables daily. 

One of the biggest things that surprises me with the Fast 5 is how full that I always feel. I find that sometimes I even have to make myself eat at the appropriate times even if I am not that hungry. I LOVE that you eat at least 5 times a day as it really keeps your metabolism going! I am also drinking LOTS of water so I find that I am continually going to the bathroom! Emoji

Here is a look into first day in pictures. I really have enjoyed all of the food so far and the shakes give me the chocolate fix that I need each day since you don't get dessert during Fast 5. 

Breakfast: Nutrisystem Blueberry Lemon Bar and 16.9 oz of Water

 

Mid Morning Snack: energiZING shake in Chocolate

Lunch: Nutrisystem Mexican Fiesta Rice Soup with Sauteed Zucchini, Garlic, Mushrooms & Onions

Mid Afternoon Snack: Chocolate Craving Crusher Shake

Dinner: Nutrisystem Chicken in BBQ Beans with Cucumber & Tomato Salad 


Stay tuned next week as I will be sharing my week one results with you! I am thrilled to see my results and to be on the road to a healthier me!

I'm A Nutrisystem #NSNation Blogger! #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.

I am so excited to announce that I am a Nutrisystem #NSNation Blogger! I shared this news on Facebook last week and am thrilled to let you all in on the news now! I will be starting the Nutrisystem Fast 5 Program on July 13 and will be sharing my journey on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I will also be sharing my journey on You Tube so be sure that you are following me on all of my social media outlets!

Why Nutrisystem? The past several years have been very hard on my physically. I was in a car accident back in 2012 and since then have undergone several surgeries which have caused me to gain weight. Now that I am on the road to recovery, it is time for me to take charge of my body and lose those pounds that have crept up on me. 

I am so excited about Nutrisystem and feel that it is just what I need to get me back on track to feeling good about myself again. I can't wait to get healthier and to have my quality of life back! I am nervous, but I know that I can do this! This program comes with so much motivation - the testimonials and results that I have seen from others make me pumped to get started!

I will start my Nutrisystem journey with the Fast 5 Program. The Fast 5 program allows you to jump-start your weight loss journey. With Fast 5, you follow a unique Fast 5+ meal planner plus FREE Expert Guides to make fast weight loss simple, and enjoy a special combination of Nutrisystem® breakfasts, lunches and dinners, four fresh veggie servings (or more!) of your choice and two FREE shakes a day to help you control cravings and rev your metabolism.

After the Fast 5+ week is complete, I will then move on to following the standard Nutrisystem® meal planner (which varies depending on which plan you choose). I will be following the Uniquely Yours Plan. 

I am so excited to start this journey on July 13 and can't wait to share it with you! Stay tuned for my first post!!

Nutrisytem Update: Learning Portion Control #nsnation #spon

Since I have been on Nutrisystem, one of the big things that I have learned along my journey is how to have portion control in my diet. Instead of eating an entire bowl of ice cream, I have learned to become satisifed with just a few bites. Or, instead of indulging in an entire bag of chips, just have a few to be satisfied. 

One of the reasons that I love the Nutrisystem plan is the idea that all of your foods (except your extras) are perfectly portioned so you don't overeat. I think this idea has really started to get stuck in my mind. If I do eat something that is not on the Nutrisystem plan, I think about this and it really helps me alot! 

Nutrisystem has been life-changing for me! I am going to share something with you that I have not shared as of yet because I was too embarrassed to do so. When I started Nutrisystem last August I weighed 186 pounds. That is alot of weight for my 5'6" frame and not healthy either. I am proud to say that I now weigh 152 pounds and am back in my size 10 bottoms and Small/Medium tops. I still have some weight to lose and my ultimate goal is to be around 140-142. I am happy though with my results and feel so much healthier as I strive to make wise food choices.

If you are struggling and need to lose weight, you should consider Nutrisytem. It totally works and the food is so yummy!

Also, be sure to check out an interview from the new Female CEO at Nutisystem Dawn Zier. She is dedicated to helping us realize the losing weight is not only to make us feel better about how we look, but that our health is of utmost importance! GO HERE to see the interview.

If you have been following me and my weight-loss journey, you know that Nutrisytem is the only diet plan that has worked for me. Since last August I have lost 33 pounds and continue to lose. Not only do I feel better about how I look, but I am also thrilled to be so much healthier these days. One of the things that I love about this program are those non-scale victories. Don't get me wrong, I love to get on the scale and watch the numbers go down, but when the inches come off and you can fit into clothes from years ago, that is remarkable! :)

Close to 2,000 Walmart stores are now selling the 5-Day Nutrisystem Jumpstart™ Your Weight Loss Kit for around $44.98. This kit includes 15 entrees plus desserts, a free meal planner and program guide with access to free weight loss counseling.

Nutrisytem Update: Making Exercise a Priority! #nsnation #spon

 

Since I have been on Nutrisystem (since August of 2012), one of the things that I have noticed is that if I don't excercise I don't see as many results as I would like to. I am going to be honest with you, since my car accident last October, I had to slack off on excercising and I really noticed a difference. I have started walking again for at least 20-30 minutes a day and it feels so good. I am making excercising a priority in my life not only for me to feel better but for my health as well.

I am down 33 pounds and many inches and feel so much better about how I feel and look. In fact, just last week I was cleaning out my closet and pulled out things that from after I had Drew 7 years ago and they fit me! Hallellujah! 

If you are struggling and need to lose weight, you should consider Nutrisytem. It totally works and the food is so yummy!

Also, be sure to check out an interview from the new Female CEO at Nutisystem Dawn Zier. She is dedicated to helping us realize the losing weight is not only to make us feel better about how we look, but that our health is of utmost importance! GO HERE to see the interview.

Nutrisytem Update: NEW & Yummy Foods! #nsnation #spon

I wanted to give you all a quick update on my Nutrisystem progress. I am 32 pounds skinnier and healthier these days thanks to Nutrisystem!

One of the things that I have to remind myself along this journey is the fact that those non-scale victories are just as victorious as the numbers on the scale. When I can wear clothes again that I fit into 3 years ago, that is definitely a reason to smile! :) Plus, I know that I am much healthier thanks to my weight-loss!

Nutrisystem has added some new foods to their product line that are sooooo yummy! A few of my favorite new items are the Chicken Pot Pie, Risotto and Cheesecake Bar. Yes, I said Cheesecake! These bars are so divine and the perfect treat for a dessert at night when I am craving something sweet.

Nutrisystem Update & Nutrisystem Has Added New Foods for the New Year! #nsnation #spon

I wanted to give you all brief Nutrisystem update. Since the holidays, I have not really lost any more weight. I an not going to lie, it was hard for me to not eat any of the yummy goodies that were out there. I am still at 27 pounds lost since August. That is still a HUGE success for me and I am thrilled with my results so far on this program. Now, that the new year is here, it is time for me to lose the rest of my weight. I want to lose another 15-20 pounds which will put me at the same weight before I had my first son Drew almost 7 years ago. I am so excited and confident that with Nutrisystem I can do it! Check out the news article HERE about Nutrisystem statistics, fun facts and more about losing weight.

Not only is the weight loss nice for my self-esteem and how I feel about my appearance, but I know that I am so much healthier as well. When I started Nutrisystem back in August, my BMI was on the Obese level. I am now pretty much down to the normal range which makes me super happy. I am doing this not only for me, but for my health as well. 

I am also excited that Nutrisystem has added some new foods for 2013!

Here are some of the new foods: Chicken Pot Pie, Spicy Kung Pao Noodle, Cinnamon Streusel Muffin and a Cheesecake Bar. How good does that sound? I am excited to try them all!

Stay tuned as I continue on my weight-loss journey towards another 15-20 pound lighter this new year!

Nutrisystem Video Update: I am 26.5 Pounds Skinnier! #nsnation #spon

 

It has been a busy few weeks since I last updated you all on my Nutrisystem progress. I am happy to report that as of today, I am down 26.5 pounds! 

Since I started Nutrisytem back in August, I have noticed a tremendous change not only only in my appearance, but also in how I feel about food in general. Before Nutrisystem, I would snack on a bag of chips or eat a few cookies and feel hungry again within a short period of time. Now that I am on Nutrisystem and am learning how to eat the right way, I feel full for much longer periods of time. It also helps to make sure that you drink the required amounts of water each day. I have to be honest with you, there have been several days that I did not get in my 64 oz. of water and I totally feel the difference! 

Some of my favorite morning snacks are Nonfat Greek Yogurt or String Cheese to tie me over until lunch time. My afternoon snack is usually a piece of fruit like a banana or apple. 

One of my favorite ways to get in all of the required daily veggies is to have a HUGE salad at lunch time. I will pile on the veggies and 2oz. of chicken or tuna along with my Fat Free Ranch or Balsamic Dressing. Then, I will eat my Nutrisystem Lunch Bar. I love the Fudge Graham Bar. It is soooo yummy and totally makes me feel like I am indulging on something that I should not be! 

I still love the fact that I have to eat dessert every night with this program. How many diet programs can say that? The Nutrisystem Buttered popcorn is so yummy and I also love the Peppermint Patty Cookies. 

I still have about 15 pounds to go until I am at my desired weight loss goal. I am staying positive and plan on trying to stay on track through the Holidays! 

Do you need to lose weight? Come and join me in this wonderful journey of Nutrisystem. It is the only diet plan that has worked for me!
