Lose Weight with Nutrisystem {10 Day Nutrisystem Select Package & Water Bottle Giveaway}

Nutrisystem Bloggers{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Michelle!}

If you visited my blog more than once or twice in 2011, it wasn't hard to see a reoccurring theme: Nutrisystem.

Having had the incredible opportunity to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation, I can tell you completely and honestly that the program worked for me. I fall directly into the category of people that have no willpower (I should start counting the number of times that my husband shakes his head at me when he walks into the kitchen and finds me stuffing something into my mouth) so there just seemed like there was no hope for me when it came to weight loss.

So, in my case, Nutrisystem was the perfect solution.

Step 1: Choose your plan (women's, men's, silver, diabetic, vegetarian, etc) and then select your food. You can have Nutrisystem send you their favorites to start you off or right away you can opt to customize your menu with the foods you love.

Step 2: Delicious food arrives at the door. It was a mini-Christmas for me each time a new shipment of Nutrisystem foods arrived, as even before I had the boxes open I was thinking about all of the tasty things inside.

Nutrisystem foodIt never surprised me when people asked me how the food tasted, all the while waiting for me to tell them that it was bad or gross or like cardboard. After all, that's the image that we have of diet food, is it not?

Instead, the answer that I gave every time was that although there was a meal now and again that I would encounter where I wasn't a big fan, for each one there were at least 15x that many of items that I did like (and that doesn't even count the meals that I love, love, loved). As with any foods, homemade or store-bought or at a Nutrisystem pizzarestaurant, you try things and you see if they fit your tastes.

The benefit of ordering each month for Nutrisystem is that then if you've found something you're not especially fond of, just don't order it next time. And if you've found something that you could eat for every meal (e.g. those Double Chocolate Caramel Bars shown above, mmmmmmm), then order a whole bunch of them.

Step 3: Eat healthy and keep track of the pounds as they start to melt away. Nutrisystem's included Meal Planner made it nearly foolproof to figure out where to add my grocery items (e.g. fruits, vegetables, dairy) to balance out my diet and as long as I followed the plan, I never felt hungry. Just the opposite, in fact. When my next meal or snack time would arrive, I couldn't believe that it was time to eat again!

Skeptical? If you are, I don't blame you. When I started Nutrisystem, I was fairly certain that it wasn't going to work simply because nothing else ever had.

NSNationBut the scale doesn't lie and 25.2 pounds later, I am a complete believer in this program. All I had to do was add fruit to breakfast, veggies to dinner, and enjoy a tasty dessert... and somehow, the pounds kept coming off. Even though ultimately I was still the one responsible for what number the scale showed me each week, Nutrisystem is what made it easy.

If you want to find out more about this program, there is a ton of information on the Nutrisystem website, as well as from calling 888-853-4689. You'll be amazed at the support and care that they show for you right from the start!

Plus, if you're still not sold on what the food might taste like, they're ready to change your mind there as well, because...

One lucky person will win a 10 Day Nutrisystem Select package of Nutrisystem's fresh-frozen meals and a Nutrisystem water bottle (ARV $150)!

I have a hard time losing weight bc I am insulin resistant. I need a diabetic plan but never really found one I liked much. I just signed up for the Diabetic plan from Nutrisystem and would like to see how the frozen foods are. Thanks!

I usually don't have a problem getting started but tend to hit a plateau about half way to my goal that tends to stall me from meeting my goal weight.

I've been on Weight Watchers for about 8 months and lost over 30lbs! But since the holidays.... I've gained back about 10. My motivation isn't there and I think a change like Nutrisystem can help. I'm sooo close to my goal, but don't want to give up!

My biggest weight loss challenge is portion control and carbs, although I am doing well with limiting sugar. It is disappointing to see a big increase in weight, I had lost a lot while I was ill. Perhaps this would be a plan that would work for me.
