About halfway through the year and only a few weeks into the stay-at-home order, I stepped on the scale and was absolutely shocked. I knew I had gained some weight but I had no idea how much. The idea of trying to lose it all was so overwhelming.
I tried a few diets in the past and could never keep the weight off. I remembered my friend Chloe lost a ton of weight years ago, so I asked for some advice and she recommended Nutrisystem®.
I immediately told her I wasn't interested in any fad diets. It turns out, Nutrisystem® is one of the most well-known weight loss programs in the world. Sure, I'd heard about it in passing but I had no idea that it's been around for over 45 years. So this is definitely not a fad diet!
Looking at the Nutrisystem® menu, it actually seemed doable. The food looked delicious. I was still skeptical about the taste. However, the fact that I wouldn't need to meal prep or count points really appealed to me. I decided to take the plunge and hope for the best.
I signed up and before I knew it, my first shipment from Nutrisystem® was on my doorstep. Here's how my first month with Nutrisystem® went:
With Nutrisystem®, I am able to eat every two to three hours. I assumed that the portions would be tiny and unsatisfactory, but I was wrong. Not only can I eat a Double Chocolate Muffin for breakfast and a pizza for dinner and still lose weight, I'm eating regularly and the meals are perfectly portioned.
I love using the NuMi® App to log my meals. It's the official Nutrisystem® online tracking tool, so it's designed to match the Nutrisystem® plan. I'm able to keep track of my eating, activity, measurements and overall progress.
I log my Nutrisystem® meals super fast by simply scanning a barcode. There are custom reminders, too. I set one to remind me to drink water throughout the day and it's been working!

Going into week two, I was able to eat six times a day—three meals and three snacks. The Nutrisystem® menu has so much variety. My favorite meal this week is the Homestyle Pancakes. Mmm. The Mac and Cheese is definitely a close second. Unlike other comfort foods, Nutrisystem® meals are ready in minutes and fit into your weight loss plan without sacrificing taste. Plus, they're delivered directly to your door! What a convenient (and delicious!) way to lose weight.
This week, I started adding my own Flex meals. I wasn't fully sure how to go about it, so I got in touch with a Nutrisystem® Weight Loss Counselor. They gave me tips for Flex meals and were really supportive in helping me set attainable goals. I feel so much more motivated after speaking to them.
Logging my measurements into the NuMi® App at the end of the week was so encouraging, considering the amount of progress I've made so quickly. Nutrisystem® is one of the few weight loss programs that doesn't require intense exercise for results. They suggest 30 minutes of activity per day. I try to be as active as I can, going for walks most days.
The week consisted of more yummy meals from Nutrisystem®—Chicken Parmesan was the star. I also made some more tasty Flex meals. I went on The Leaf® Weight Loss Blog for some nutrition tips and healthy recipes. I made some Banana Bread, which was super simple thanks to the easy navigation on The Leaf®.
This weekend I'm going to a restaurant for my friend's birthday. After logging into the NuMi® App and seeing how far I had come, I was worried I'd eat all the wrong foods and gain back weight. So, I got in touch with a Nutrisystem® Weight Loss Counselor again and they recommended which meal I should choose from the restaurant menu. That made me feel more comfortable.
Nutrisystem Flex meals have helped me feel more confident in the kitchen. Thanks to the easy and delicious recipes on The Leaf®, I made an Egg White & Spinach Breakfast Burrito and an Instant Pot Maple Walnut Cheesecake. Both super tasty—as expected!
Logging on the NuMi® App this week, I've come such a long way and made real progress. This is definitely the easiest weight loss program I have ever tried. My goal weight is in sight!!!
I glanced at the Nutrisystem® Success® Transition & Maintenance Plans to arm myself for the coming weeks. Thankfully, Nutrisystem® offers a variety of Success® plans that are flexible and will fit into anyone's lifestyle.
I'm now in my seventh week and have reached my goal. I've never been more confident that I will keep the weight off. Thanks to Nutrisystem® and their various support tools, there's no room for error.
Nutrisystem® not only guides you through your entire journey—they are there to help even when it's over. I'd highly recommend Nutrisystem®.
