The BEST Weight Loss System for Busy Moms – #NSNation

Ok – You’ve heard me talking about it on social media for a few weeks now – I have joined the Nutrisystem Nation! I am incredibly excited to finally have an amazing system and support to get this baby weight off. {Baby weight? That was so 6 months ago. This is TODDLER weight now. Ugh.} I set up my account a few weeks ago, logged my weight and measurements, and then watched as my shipments of new, healthy meals showed up, delivered conveniently to my doorstep. I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this program!

#NSNation, Nutrisystem, Weight Loss

“A strong positive attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.” – Patricia Neal

The first shipment from Nutrisystem comes with all the written materials and tracking guides that you need to get you started on the right track – and help you along the way. There is a guide book with loads of great information and tips – and my favorite part, the Daily Planner, which is where you log your meals each day. Just the process of writing down everything that you eat makes you SO much more aware of your habits.

Nutrisystem, Weight Loss, #NSNation, Frozen Weight Loss Foods

“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.” – William James

As you can see – You get a huge amount of amazing foods as part of the system! This is my frozen foods shipment for the month – it includes the awesome new Chef’s Table Entree’s for dinner, great breakfast and lunch options – and even dessert! Yep, when you’re on the Nutrisystem program you get to enjoy a great dessert every single night – things like a fudge brownie or ice cream cups. {I have a sweet tooth, so this addition means it’s easy for me to stay on track. Love it!}

Protein Shakes, Weight loss shakes, #NSNation

“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.” – Dennis P. Kimbro

Also included in the plan is a huge assortment of shelf stable foods – things like soups, snack bars, and yummy breakfast choices like chocolate chip scones. Each morning you add a protein shake to your breakfast choice, to keep you filling full all morning. I’d tried weight loss shakes years ago – but I hated that grittiness, the way they never really blended smoothly. Well, Nutrisystem fixes that with their totally cool shaker gadget – that little ball is just like a whisk. You add it in with water, the shake mix powder, and some ice cubes – and it seriously blends it so smooth. Tastes just like a really thick an creamy chocolate milk, I swear. My nephews tried it, and they say it’s no fair that I get to drink them all. It’s that good.

fresh fruit, bananas, weight loss

“One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.” – John Wanamaker

Nutrisystem supplies almost everything you need for success – The foods, the guide and tracking planner, and an uh-MAY-zing online support system. But there are a few pieces of the plan that you have to add in:

  1. Fresh Foods: Things like fruit and vegetables, low or non-fat dairy products, and smart carbs like whole grain. You can also add healthy beverages like tea, and of course loads of water!
  2. Activity: You can take an assessment in your account profile on Nutrisystem, and give yourself a goal of at least 10 minutes of moderate activity, 3 times per day. This is easier than you think – vacuum the house quickly for 10 minutes in the morning. Take an afternoon walk around the neighborhood. And then play a couple of games of soccer in the yard with the kids again in the evening. Easy peasy.
  3. A Great Attitude: Yep, this will make all the difference – and it’s totally in your control. “Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.” Doug Firebaugh.

Every week I will be sharing my progress with you – to give you information on how the process works, to share my struggles and successes, and answer any questions you have. Since I didn’t get a chance to introduce you guys to the program last week like planned – {remember that nasty computer crash I had?} – This week I’ll have two posts. Tomorrow is the Moment of Truth….

What is the Moment of Truth??

Tomorrow I will let you guys know more about my weight loss goals… And share a picture of me on the scale, so you can see my starting weight. GAAAAHHH!! My weight? On the internet?? But I think that it’s the BEST way to keep me honest, motivated, and accountable. So – be nice in your comments tomorrow when I post it :) Stay tuned….

  1. So how are things going on Nutrisystem? I plan on starting it very soon and am curious to see what you think… I, too, am a busy mom (work full-time) and instead of losing my baby weight – I’ve gained… Feel free to respond to my email if you’d rather chat that way…

    Thanks! :)

      I’m super excited – This week’s weight-in just showed me that I lost another 2.5 pounds!! I have never been able to get my weight to budge, at all, on my own this past year. So this is incredibly exciting!!
