Starting Week 12 on Nutrisystem

As I begin my 12th week on Nutrisystem, I've been reflecting on the last three months, the highs and lows of this journey and what did and didn't work for me. Losing weight at any age is not easy, attempting to lose 40-50 lbs. in my mid-50s sounded nearly impossible, at least to me it did. Although I haven't lost as much as some of the other bloggers have reported who started on this journey at the same time as I did, I think my biggest success so far was in taking the first step. 

As I wrote in one of my earlier posts, years ago a friend tried Nutrisystem and didn't have great things to say about it. I wish I hadn't let her experience be the voice in my head these past few years during which I struggled to lose even 5 lbs. The best advice I can give to anyone that is having a hard time with weight loss is to take that first step and give Nutrisystem a try. Like me, you may find it's one of the best decisions you'll ever make. 

Thinking that this would be my last week on Nutrisystem, I had planned to share my "Top 10" fave foods for those who are considering starting on the plan and not sure what to order. Thankfully, it's not my last week and although I haven't tried all 150+ items yet, I like love so many of the meals, that 10 is not enough. So here is a list of my faves in no particular order:

Ice Cream Sandwich
Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Steak & Cheese Melt
Honey Mustard Pretzel Bites
Cinnamon Roll
Chocolate Turbo Shake
Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast
Biscotti Bites
Smoky BBQ Snack-A-Rounds
Roasted Turkey Medallions
Chicken Pot Pie
Whole Wheat Ricotta Crepes
Blueberry Muffin
Chicken Parmesan
Fudge Bar
Cinnamon Bun Bar
Stuffed Shells
and my #1 fave...

Chicken Bacon and Ranch Pizza
Still in awe that I can eat pizza, ice cream and oooey gooey delicious cinnamon rolls on Nutrisystem and lose weight! Speaking of....

POW POW! 2 more lbs. gone for an 11-week total of 18.6 lbs.!! ☺
