Intro to Healthy Living (#NSNation, #spon)

As you all know Hubby, Mother-in-Law, and I have been on Nutrisystem for some time now and just love it…we are coming to an end of our time with Nutrisystem and I am NOT worried because Nutrisystem has taught us the tools we need to continue a healthy lifestyle.

So it gave me the idea of doing some Healthy Living Videos for y’all!

Here is my first video introduction!

The weigh in this week is amazing… as every one in our home has been sick fighting bronchitis and have been unable to do any type of exercising…

I have lost a total of 33.4 pounds

Hubby has lost 35 pounds

Mother-in-law has lost 17 pounds

I’m Getting My Diabetes Under Control, Thanks to Nutrisystem (#NSNation, #spon)

SEPTEMBER 25, 2012

Hi everyone, this is Mother-in-Law! I wanted to drop a note because I am very excited!!! I can’t believe it, I just made my doctor a very happy woman!!  You see, my test diabetes test results were amazing. The A1c test which gives a picture of the average amount of glucose in the blood over […]


When the weight just keeps coming off… (#NSNation, #spon)

SEPTEMBER 17, 2012

I was talking to a friend the other day who was laughing at my new “healthy lifestyle” asking if I was the same person who years ago said that calorie counting and weighing yourself daily is ludicrous? Ha, ha, ha… you know, that really is how I felt. I never believed in dieting because it always […]


First 15 Pounds Shed… Thanks to the Nutrisystem Diabetic Plan (#NSNation, #spon)


Hi everyone, this is Mother-in-Law! I can’t believe that it hass’s been six weeks since I started the Nutrisystem program and it has been much easier than I expected.  When I started the program I thought I would have trouble figuring out what to eat, however the literature I was given explained everything in an easy-to-understand language […]


OM – I can’t believe it, we BOTH passed our 30 pound goals (#NSNation, #spon)


Hip, hip, hooray! I am so excited that I can’t even tell you. I stepped on the scale yesterday and realized that I had PASSED my first BIG goal of losing 30 pounds! I knew my shorts were feeling loose and I have been doing laundry every other day since I only have two pairs of […]


The Ups & Downs of Weightloss – When You Lose INCHES Not Pounds (#NSNation, #spon)

AUGUST 30, 2012

August was a CRAZY month for me. Between traveling and house guests I struggled to stay on track. I tried to continue with Nutrisystem, which is easy (just grabbing a meal or snack) but actually getting to the gym and continuing my cardio routine, just did not happen. So, when I got on my EatSmart […]


Wow – Goodbye 14′s – Hello Comfortable Size 12′s!!! (#NSNation)

I can’t believe this… my size 14 shorts are officially falling off me!!! Thanks to breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks from Nutrisystem and my new work out regime, I am more than half way to my goal of losing 50 pounds. I can’t believe how great I feel. I have more energy and feel great! […]


Didn’t Recognize Myself (#NSNation)

AUGUST 8, 2012

Have you ever had it where you look in the mirror or see a photo and think, is that really me? That just happened to me. I was searching photos of an event I went to and could not find myself. I was kind of bummed since it was a fun event and I know […]


At 65 I Am Ready to Make a Change (#NSNation)

AUGUST 2, 2012

I am turning 65 in a month and I feel like I need a new start! I am overweight and have tried everything to lose it. Maybe if I were a big sweets eater it would easier because I could just cut out sweats, but I’m not, so I just don’t understand it. I guess […]


I Will Reach My Goal ((#NSNation)

JULY 27, 2012

I am shocked… just shocked!!! Hubby & I have been on Nutrisystem for almost two full months, can you believe it.  I am amazed at the confidence and energy that both Hubby and I now have. It is like we are Newlyweds, giggling, laughing and just horsing around. Though I knew he had gained weight […]


Vacation Isn’t As Stressful When You Are Smaller…(#NSNation)

JULY 17, 2012

Now, you may be reading the title thinking to yourself, wait, what are you saying? Let me explain… every year that I have gone on vacation one of the most stressing parts was clothing. Especially when visiting family because like most Jewish families, mine are wonderful at the ‘back-handed’ compliments. So, in the past I […]

I Am NOT the Same Person I Was…. (#NSNation Week 6)

JULY 5, 2012

It wasn’t too long ago that I just accepted the fact that I was a big woman. I equated it to the fact that I had three kids and loved to eat well. At the same time, like Hubby always said, “I was allergic to sweat” which made working out not fun for me. I […]


Shopping is FUN When Clothes FIT!!!! (#NSNation)

JUNE 28, 2012

About four months ago I went shopping. Since it gets so hot here in Texas, I wanted to buy some fun and pretty summer dresses! The day of shopping did not go as planned. I am sure each of you reading this have had this day. You get your kids in line, head to the […]


Healthy Eating – While Out of the House… ((#NSNation Wk 4)

JUNE 20, 2012

Okay – we are on week four of Nutrisystem and last weekend was kind of a test for us. You see, it was Hubby’s 40th birthday weekend and we celebrated with his Best Friend who traveled here from Maryland! Since it was not only his Birthday, but also Father’s Day weekend, Hubby kind of got a […]


So, I cheated… Kinda…(#NSNation)

JUNE 12, 2012

Okay, I began on Nutrisystem three weeks ago Friday and it has been a life changer. I am watching and counting calories and learning how to eat properly. I have stuck to all Nutrisystem meals (except for breakfast, where I tend to do egg beaters, instead.) I am still learning about my add-ins, proteins and […]


Accountability – in MY Weight-loss – Week 2 (#NSNation)

JUNE 6, 2012

Well, last week I rambled quite a bit, and to tell you the truth, I think I will ramble on each of these posts. You see, weight gain and loss is something that is so hard to deal with, let alone write about. It is a personal affair, that I am sharing with the world […]


Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem – Week 1 (#NSNation)

MAY 31, 2012

Well, as of tomorrow, we will have been on Nutrisystem for one week! Woo Hoo! I have so many thoughts and feelings that I don’t know where to begin… first of all, the food! I am shocked at how much food is included in our diet. Between meals, snacks, shakes, and extras, there is never […]

YAY… Nutrisystem Delivery Day – (#NSNation)

MAY 22, 2012

Today was the big day… I got my confirmation a couple days ago that our first Nutrisystem Package would be arriving today…. so I began my trek at cleaning out the pantry to make room, ha, ha, ha!!! It took quite some time, but I got a section cleared out. (Remember, I can’t clear it […]
