As members of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Panel, Jai and I will be receiving the Nutrisystem program free of charge in order to share our honest opinions with you. Always consult with your physician before embarking on any weight loss or exercise program.
One year ago this month, Jai and I wrapped up our 11 month stint on the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Panel, losing a combined 86 pounds. It was a truly life-changing experience, and the changes stayed with us after we integrated back into “Real life” – I was still losing weight 2 months afterwards, and noticed how my appetite for small portions stayed the same months after finishing Nutrisystem – it really was a whole alteration of our lives! Jai and I did overall pretty good maintaining our progress last year; we hit a snag in December when we both got struck by a horrible flu, and have literally been sick back-to-back-to-back ever since; I’m actually deathly sick with yet another cold as I write this, so it’s been a really rough cold season. We’ve picked up some bloat from this nonstop sickness disruption, so it’s the perfect time to put on the “Emergency brake” and get back to normal with this fun Nutrisystem “Couples Challenge” that we are excited to announce! We’re teaming up with our friends Louise and Andrew over at MomStart to do Nutrisystem together over the coming months. They’ve never experienced Nutrisystem before, so we’re excited to share our tips with them as “Old-timers” and have the wonderful support of doing the program with others in the NSNation!
We’ll be posting weekly updates over on MomStart.com as well as sharing our monthly update videos here on Contest Corner. We’re excited to whittle down the last of our weight loss goals, and I feel like we’re in a great place to do Nutrisystem again because we have the experience of knowing what the first few weeks are like, how it feels during the middle of the program, and what to watch out for when transitioning off the program; my main takeaway since finishing Nutrisystem last year is that it’s really important for my health to get more sleep. We’re extremely excited to re-join the Nutrisystem family – one of the best things about it is that this diet is not deprivation, it’s a gift! I can eat delicious muffins, ice cream, and not have to cook or do much grocery shopping; and I lose weight and feel awesome. Does that sound like hardship to you?!
Head over to MomStart to check out our first Couples Challenge post, and stay tuned for our monthly video updates!
