Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 24 and 20 #NSNation

It’s been 24 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 20 weeks for Kaytlin. Last week I told (and showed) you about cleaning out my closet. All of my “too big” clothes are now gone. Well, Kaytlin followed suit and cleaned out her closet as well. I am sure the DAV was happy to see all of our clothes coming in, but our empty closets made us sad. I had planned on heading to Fashion Bug (because I had a coupon) but Kaytlin’s bank account was empty from … [Read more...]

What a Mom Wants: Chilis Margarita Madness Review & $20 gc GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

"Mom's Deserve a Margarita on Mother's Day!" Mothers Day is quickly approaching… have you made plans for her special lunch/dinner yet? No?! How about Chilis? Kaytlin and I stopped in for lunch while out shopping. We were a bit apprehensive because we were pretty sure there wasn’t much on the menu for vegetarians, but we decided to give it a go anyway. It’s been ages since I had eaten at Chilis. I have only been eating vegetarian for six months … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 23 & 19 #NSNation

It’s been 23 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 19 weeks for Kaytlin. It was a big week at our house! Our long awaited elliptical finally arrived to help kick our butts into gear. I was able to use it twice this week… the first time I had noodle legs after using it only 10 minutes. The second time I was able to push 20 minutes out before I had to quit. YEAH me! :O) My other big moment was emotional and scary for me. I had discussed with my … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In: Weeks 22 & 18 #NSNation

It’s been 22 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 18 weeks for Kaytlin. What a frustrating week for me this week. I was such a good girl. I ate exactly what was on the list and nothing more. I even had that nasty terrible metallic taste for nearly a full week! I slipped off the wagon a bit yesterday and was greeted with a BIG FAT ZIP on the scale today. *sigh* On the other hand, I had a beyond the scale victory! I am officially down another … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In: Weeks 21 & 17 #NSNation

It’s been 21 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 17 weeks for Kaytlin. This week was pretty uneventful for both of us. We have been (im)patiently waiting for the weather to warm up and and also for our elliptical to finally ship (April 1). Now we are waiting for it to arrive! Confession time here. Friday and Saturday I was a pretty good girl, but I had a couple of bowls of homemade popcorn at the end of the day. Sunday… well, we went to the … [Read more...]

#WIN Nutrisystem 10 Days of Fresh Frozen Select Foods GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

I have been on the Nutrisystem program for five months now. I liked the program so much, my 18 year old daughter joined and she has been on the program for four months now. I have lost 30.8 pounds and Kaytlin has lost 32.4. Between the two of us we have lost a small child! There are so many more benefits of being on the Nutrisystem program than the pounds lost (as wonderful as those may be!). We are learning how to eat proper portions, what … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 20 & 16: 3/25/11 #NSNation

It’s been 20 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 16 weeks for Kaytlin. I can’t believe it’s been five months since I started this journey. Watching the celebrities in the television commercials… somehow I just knew it had to be harder than they were saying. I had never been on a plan that was easy to stick to. Five months later, I can now say… “Yes, it is hard. But in a way it is easy. It’s a journey that you have to take one day at a time. … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 19 & 15: 3/18/11 #NSNation

It’s been 19 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 15 weeks for Kaytlin. I’m not even going to dilly dally over this. Both Kaytlin and I had a rough week. It is my oldest son’s 14th birthday today and Tuesday night he had a birthday party with a few of his friends. This has been a five year tradition… same boys, same junk food. While purchasing said junk food… I keep telling myself “you aren’t going to eat it… just serve it”. The day arrived … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 18 & 14: 3/11/11 #NSNation

It’s been 18 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 14 weeks for Kaytlin. So, remember last week when I promised to work out 2-3 days a week. I am embarrassed to admit it, but I broke my promise. I did do Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred once, but the rest of the week I focused on just moving. The weather is getting nicer and I am enjoying going outside with the kids and doing some yard work while they swing, slide and jump. Thank you Mother Nature … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 17 & 13 : 3/4/11 #NSNation

It’s been 17 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 13 weeks for Kaytlin. Remember last week how I was griping and complaining because spring disappeared on me? I had asked my husband to pick up a copy of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred so I had something I could do inside while waiting for Mother Nature to decide what she was going to do with herself. I started working out with the DVD last Friday and did it for four days straight. It hurt like … [Read more...]
