Nutrisystem Week 12 Update ~ #NSNation

 

I have now been on Nutrisystem for 3 months! Wow! It has just flown by for me. I am a little sad that this journey will be ending but hope to be able to continue making the right choices on my own. It’s gonna be hard, especially when those little thoughts creep in about giving up, but I hope to work pass them.

My mindset has been the hardest part of this whole program, not the food, or the program, but the inner struggle. If you have fought with your weight, you know exactly what I am talking about. It’s definitely an emotional roller coaster but one I am working on every single day. I know that even when my program ends, I can call on my #NSNation friends for support.

Summer is also gonna be a tough one, so many tempting foods, that’s why I was glad to get the following tips:

Whether you are hosting a BBQ or just attending one, I wanted to share with you some tips from my Nutrisystem Mentor for “Surviving (and Enjoying) the Summertime BBQ Season While On Nutrisystem.”

 

  1. Bring your “BBQ-esque” Nutrisystem meal of choice: Nutrisystem’s Hamburgers, Chicken and Hot Dogs are great on the grill! That way you still feel part of the BBQ eating festivities while staying on program.
  2. Wheat rolls and buns à this way you give everyone a healthier option
  3. Following the guidelines of your grocery guide – create a garden salad with all your favorite vegetables with various dressings on the side. That way everyone can choose what dressing is best for them, but the salad also allows you to get in your add-in additions while on program.  To make a complete meal, top with some grilled chicken.
  4. Grill some vegetables on the BBQ  – Fun way to do this and to have the kids get involved, make vegetable shish kabobs! Then all that is left to do is toss them on to the BBQ and makes a great side dish (or condiment too!).
  5. Try to steer away from items drenched with BBQ sauce as this will only add in extra calories and typically is high in sugar and sodium.
  6. Make sure to have iced water on hand. Toss in some slices of citrus fruits (i.e. oranges, lime and lemons) or even cucumbers too. This makes it different and is quite refreshing!
  7. For dessert you can have your Nutrisystem Dessert with the group, but also have a healthy option such as fruit salad or fruit kabobs for you and your guests. The kids can even help out with making them.
