My New Adventure

For Valentines Day we did not go out and do a romantic dinner and movie. We did not exchange cards. I did not receive a new piece of jewelry. We went to Costco that day and The Hubster bought me this so I guess really he did buy me a card!Ha! There was a coupon so that made it even better.

This is my new adventure. The adventure that has taken up most of my thoughts and time this week. Even after having to go all the way back across town to Costco because nobody told us they needed to give us the card I still had fun ordering my food.

Had much moral support in the process. For some reason both furry children were up on the desk. I guess they wanted to cheer me on and say yes mom you can do it!:)

This came 10 LONG days later. I had read reviews where some received their food in only 4 days and some 10. I was prepared to wait but had wished it would have come sooner.

Oldest and Littliest helped open the box and sort thru it. It weighed as much as Littliest at 34 pounds!

Had to reorganize the pantry and ended up taking over an entire cabinet to keep things organized. Thankfully we have the cabinet space with some fudging.

Thursday was Day 1. I picked this for breakfast. I was not sure what I was going to find once opened. I was scared!

Things were looking up and after 10 secs in the micro it was pretty darn tasty!

Ahhh, lunch. Another not so sure.

I HAD to add parm. You can not have Italian without some parm! I ended up being very pleased with lunch as well!

Now afternoon snack. These were super yummy too!

Day 1 went well I think as far as food goes. Dinner was not my fave but edible. I had some mushroom risotto or something. Now that I have completed Day 2 I have to say I am liking my new adventure thus far. All my foods today were super yummy and with the add ins of fruit and veggies I have been eating more than I ever have!
I refer to this as my NEW adventure but in reality is not a NEW adventure for me but one I have been on most of my teen/adult life. I have tried doing this alone but I NEEDED a boost. I know, I their are stories out there about once people are off the plan they just gain it all back and then some but I am determined to make this work!
Don't worry this will not become a blog just about weight loss but if you are on this journey as well please lets share! If you have done Nutrisystem or are currently doing it let me know! I would love to compare notes and cheer each other on. I will continue to post about my adventure in achieving a healthier me along with my other passions. I figured seeing as I was making over rooms and what not it was high time to work on me too!
Now that I have most things figured out as far as scheduling and what not I will be back to regular posting!:) I just downloaded a ton of pics. I even have some of our "snow" the other day so be sure to check back.
Have a wonderful weekend ya'll!


  1. Good luck with your weight loss adventure! I too and on a weight loss adventure. I started In Jan. Today I reached the first goal I had set for myself-20 pounds lost! My next goal is to lose 10 more pounds. We are having a Biggest Loser contest going at work and we have all been a great support for each other. Im using the weight watcher system. So far it has worked well for me/.

  2. You go girl!!!!!!!! :) So excited for you. Keep us posted!

  5. Only the very best wishes for your new adventure!!! My husband was very successful with nutrisystem a few years ago! Enjoy your success!

  6. Thanx for the well wishes ladies!

  7. You can do it! The food actually looks really good.

  8. Yes, you can do it! I look forward to hearing about your journey. Other people's stories always inspire me.

  9. I am sending good luck your way and wish you only success! Thanks for sharing this with us! I agree with Marla, the food does look really good!

  12. It would be a good jumpstart for sure!

    Weight Watchers got rid of baby weight and it has stuck with me.

    Good Luck!

  13. We bought my dh the very same card! But the boy version not too terribly long ago. He is liking the progress. Ya know, guys lose like no body's business - so he is down 8.5 pounds this morning (2.5 weeks into his journey).

    I lost 90 pounds last yr (using a diff program) and I am...

    Wishing you the best!


  14. Good luck with that plan. I did it for a while and only lost five pounds and got tired of that food really fast. I am glad it is working for you. I guess I just have to have real food. I am just cooking mostly lean meats, fresh or frozen vegs and whole grains and fruits plus started exercising again. Coming off slowly, but that is expected especially at my age. You are young and it will come off quicker. I have lost ten pounds, so I am happy with that so far. I am cheering you on. You can do it!!

  15. I envy you! I have been wanting to try this too. I know that it works. Enjoy the journey!

    And thanks for stopping by my blog.

  16. Congrats on the new adventure -- that scone looks YUM! :)
