How Nutrisystem Helped Me Lose 60+ Pounds As A Busy Mom

I used to think my pre-baby life couldn’t get any busier! But I quickly learned just how overwhelmed a person can truly feel after having three kids. Doctor’s appointments, after-school sports, swimming lessons, and even more to squeeze into my calendar had me putting self-care on the backburner.

I found myself struggling to balance mom duties, my mental health, and just everyday life…and I gained some weight along the way. I really wanted to find a way to get my health back on track, though, which is how I landed on Nutrisystem.

Before Nutrisystem, nothing was ever convenient or simple enough to make me continue my weight loss journey. But here I am, 60 pounds lighter*, and I’m finally celebrating my body and reveling in my crazy, beautiful life. Here’s why.

Nutrisystem is Convenient and Easy

Alright, anyone with one child or 10 knows that kids just want to eat stuff that maybe we adults shouldn’t. Who hasn’t suffered from a week where your daughter will only eat frozen chicken nuggets or a box of mac & cheese? And while it’s tempting just to eat what you make for your kids, it isn’t always optimal for someone with fitness or self-care goals.

With Nutrisystem, I can select my meals and order them in a month’s supply. Yes, a whole month! And it automatically ships straight to my door. The meals are ready-made and pre-portioned, so you’re not spending tons of time in the kitchen whipping up a separate meal for yourself. What I love the most is that the meals taste genuinely delicious due to the high-quality ingredients inside. I could honestly stay on Nutrisystem forever if it means eating their Hearty Inspirations® meals. That’s what they call their latest line of high-protein meals that control hunger for up to 5 hours**. I’m talking real-deal premium dishes, like Asian Salmon, Swedish Meatballs and Beef & Veal Tortelloni. It’s seriously so good, you forget you’re losing weight.

Nutrisystem Has So Much Variety

I want my food to be easier and healthier, but I’m still looking for variety in my meals. Luckily, variety is the name of the game at Nutrisystem—you can pick from 130+ meal choices, plus snacks and shakes. Looking for diabetic or vegetarian options? Nutrisystem has you covered, too. For me, the hardest part is picking my meals: From Beef Lo Mein to Four Cheese Manicotti and Bourbon Chicken, my Nutrisystem delivery is full of dishes I can’t wait to try.

Nutrisystem Lets Me Indulge (And Keeps Me Feeling Fuller!)

All Nutrisystem meals are designed by dietitians, and the plans are lower-glycemic and powered by protein. This means your body loses weight fast, but you still feel satisfied.

On average, a day of Nutrisystem includes 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, 1 dinner, and 1 or 2 snacks. That is a lot of “yummy” to look forward to, and completely opposite of the more drastic weight loss methods like fasting or skipping meals. And these meals and snacks are healthier versions of food I already love! My favorite picks include delectable choices like their Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake, the crispy and fluffy Buttermilk Waffles, and the creamy Mushroom Parmesan Soup with Chicken. Nutrisystem’s balanced versions of my favorite foods have really shifted my mindset about “good vs. bad” foods.

Nutrisystem Changed My Relationship with Food

So far, I have lost 60+ pounds with Nutrisystem. And I did it all while learning more about nutrition and embracing the self-care that comes with learning how to eat right and live healthy. Gone are the days where I’m indulging in my kids’ chicken nuggets! My Nutrisystem meals are more convenient and a whole lot tastier, too.

I’m feeling totally empowered to keep going with the support of Nutrisystem’s NuMi app, which is powered by the science of SmartAdapt: A new technology that’s designed to help you bust through plateaus for steady weight loss. Nutrisystem also gave me so much of my day back—I can spend time on self-care or with my family instead of in the kitchen. For the first time ever, Nutrisystem has helped me practice the ultimate form of self-care: Healthy nourishment. And I’m loving it!
