Nutrisystem Update: Week 12! #NSNation

YAY ME!!! I am so excited to be posting this week's update! I have officially been on the Nutrisystem program for 12 weeks and reached another milestone! I also have some wonderful news to share.

When I first started the program, I set a BIG goal (not yet disclosed how much I would like to lose). Then, I decided to break it down into smaller increments.  First goal on the list: "Lose 10 pounds". DONE! In fact, I wrote about that in my Week 6 update. Second goal on the list: "Lose 10 more pounds". DONE!!! Yes, you read that right. I have lost, as of today, over 20 pounds on Nutrisystem!!!

Do you know what that means??? I qualify for another Nutribear!!! What is a Nutribear??? I received my first one after posting my Week 6 update. CLICK HERE it you want to see what a Nutribear looks like. Oh, and feel free to read the post while you're there. :)

When I originally signed on for this opportunity, it was "only" supposed to be for four months. That's where the good news comes in. I have been given the chance to stay on the program an additional four months and continue to update all of you on my progress!!! The folks at Nutrisystem have been so supportive and have expressed how much they would like to help me reach my BIG goal.

By the way, the third goal on the list: "Weigh Less than 200 pounds". I. AM. SO. CLOSE!!!

Week 12 Loss: 1.6 pounds

Total Loss in twelve weeks: 20.6 pounds!!! YIPPEE!!!

Some of my bloggy friends are also participating in the Nutrisystem Nation Program. Please consider stopping by their sites and cheer them on as well. 

Each week I will update the blog with any progress I've made as well as what I did to get there: the foods I ate and any activities I participated in. I hope you will help cheer me on, share words of wisdom, or anything else regarding this topic. I would love to hear from you!

Here is a list of "Nutrisystem Holiday Survival Smarts" shared with me by Meredith. I plan to read them every day until all of the holiday parties have come and gone…and even beyond that!

For Details on each tip, you can refer to my Week 9 Update where I posted them the first time.

Nutrisystem Holiday Survival Smarts 10 Diet-friendly Strategies for Thanksgiving and Beyond. The holiday season is a dreaded time for many people on a weight loss program, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are ten easy ways you can enjoy the celebration days without feeling punished or sacrificing your Nutrisystem progress.

1. Have a plan.

2. Stay on track.

3. Set a goal.

4. Drink smart.

5. Trim the calories.

6. Enlist support.

7. Keep moving.

8. Quality not Quantity. If you do plan to indulge in some of the traditional Thanksgiving favorites, use these portions as a guideline:

  • Turkey—3 oz. white meat, no skin (about the size of a deck of cards)
  • Mashed potatoes—1/3 cup (about the size of half of a baseball)
  • Gravy—1 Tbsp. (just drizzle it)
  • Relish made with sugar—1 Tbsp.
  • Stuffing—2 Tbsp.
  • Dinner Roll—if not homemade, skip it
  • Pie—1/12 of a 9” pie

9. Eat Before You Go.

10. Embrace the holiday spirit.
