I Lost 76 Pounds in 34 Weeks on Nutrisystem #NSNation

Week 34 is complete.  I have lost another 2 pounds for a total of 76 pounds in 34 weeks.  I really can't believe the progress I have made with Nutrisystem.  It has become second nature to me to live this lifestyle.  I rarely struggle with resisting temptations any more.  I get to have a dessert every day.  There are sweets for breakfast and lunch too.  I crave chocolate sometimes so I have a Fudge Graham Bar for lunch that satisfies my cravings in a portion controlled healthy way.

Doesn't that look delicious?  I really love the fudge graham bars.  I order 4 of these each month.  I try to have them only on the weekends, but sometimes during the week I bring one to work with me for a quick on the go lunch.  Of course I have it like a dessert with a big salad for lunch!

Nutrisystem is such an amazing weight loss program.  I really do not feel deprived and the weight keeps coming off.  I love every minute of it.  I am so thankful to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation of Bloggers.  I will reach my goal soon and I am confident that I can maintain this new, healthier lifestyle that I lead, all thanks to Nutrisystem.

Review:

Total Fitness DVDs sent me Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 to review.  I have been working on this DVD for the past month or so.  I haven't done it every day because I sprinkle in other workouts throughout my weeks.  I am such a huge fan of Jillian.  She is an amazing trainer.  I love how strong I feel once I have completed one of these workouts.

I have done each of the workouts at least two times.  I love these workouts.  They are very challenging and I love to challenge myself.  Each workout features new moves, different moves and that is wonderful.  Doing the same moves gets old over time.  I will continue to pop this DVD in when I need to be challenged and work on getting ripped!

I Lost 74 Pounds In 33 Weeks on Nutrisystem #NSNation

Week 33 is complete.  I weighed in this morning and I have lost another two pounds for a total of 74 pounds since I started Nutrisystem back on December 29, 2011.  That's exactly 72 pounds in 33 weeks.  I am so happy with the amount of weight I have lost so far.  I have lost an average of nine pounds a month since I began.

Losing weight with Nutrisystem is fun and easy to do.  I truly love this program and recommend it to anyone who wants to lose weight.  It works for a few pounds and it works for lots of pounds.  I was afraid that the closer I got to my goal that slower my progress would be but so far progress hasn't stalled at all.

I have 26 more pounds to go until I reach my goal weight.  I really believe that I will be there soon.  I have had a great breakfast today and I am going to have a wonderful lunch and dinner as well.  With Nutrisystem I eat regularly and watch the pounds fly away!

Want to join me in losing weight and feeling great?  You can save $30 on your first order with Buddy Bucks.  Send me your email address and I'll send you the Buddy Bucks so you can get started today!

Ellen Barrett's Slim Sculpt DVD Review and Giveaway Ends 9/1/12 at 7 PM EST

Ellen Barrett's Slim Sculpt

Certified instructor description: A balanced program that gracefully blends Pilates techniques and weight-room style toning. It’s an effective format that stretches and lengthens your body as it shapes and tones each muscle. Classic gym-style exercises are “softened” with more fluid transitions and a greater range of motion. For example, instead of a standard start-then-stop lunge, you’ll lean into the lunge and then gently pull back (so the muscle stretches on the “lean in” and strengthens on the “pull back”). Upper-body moves have a similar feel (e.g. large, diagonal motions like a Pilates “pulley arms” routine). The floorwork features mostly classic Pilates core exercises. Ellen’s cuing is clear and refined. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2007. 


Ellen Barrett has done it again.  Another wonderful DVD that I really enjoy.  I did this workout earlier this morning.  I also did it one day last week.  I used 3 lb dumbbells throughout the entire workout.  My arms did get tired but I pushed through.  I love that there are options for those of us who are beginners to use.  One of the ladies in the video doesn't use any dumbbells at all.  The music playing in the background of this video is nice and upbeat.  The whole DVD just flows nicely and feels amazing.  You will feel energized and ready to face the day once you have completed this DVD.

Ellen Barrett's Skinny Sculpt DVD Review & Giveaway Ends 8/31/12 at 7 PM EST

Certified instructor description: A fluid blend of stretching and strengthening exercises designed to give you toned muscles, sleek lines and everyday flexibility. You’ll start with gently flowing sequences of dancer-inspired movements. Each series smoothly transitions through multiple muscles and techniques (e.g. Ellen begins with a plié squat, shifts into a warrior lunge and then adds a bicep curl). The moves are almost cardio — fast-paced with a full range of motion. The ending floorwork segment is exceptionally comprehensive and varied. It works your lower body, abs and back in every possible angle, plane and position. Requires 2 to 4 lb. dumbbells. Excellent cuing and detailed instruction on a bright, airy set. ©2010. DVD has: Chapter menus, Wide screen.

Collage Video sent me Ellen Barrett's Skinny Sculpt to review.  I have done this workout twice now and each time I do it I love it more than the last.  I can't wait to have the chance to do this one again.  Ellen Barrett is my favorite instructor.  Each DVD that I do with her is better than the last.  I started out with 5 lb dumbbells but I had to move down to 2 lbs because this workout is hard with that heavy of weights.  I hope to work up to 5 lb dumbbells in the future.

This is a 45 minute workout and it's pretty intense throughout the entire time.  It's easy to follow Ellen's cues and fun to participate in the moves.  I really enjoy the workout and look forward to putting it in again soon!  If you want to enter to win this for yourself, just enter the giveaway below.

Sportline Cardio 630 Women's Heart Rate Monitor Review and Giveaway Ends 8/30/12 at 7 PM EST

Review:

As you know, I have been working out more and more.  I recently got the Sportline Cardio 630 Women's Heart Rate Monitor to review.  I immediately put it on and started jogging.  It was fun to see how fast my heart beats when I workout.  My heart rate got up to 160 sometimes a little bit more, which is excellent because that's fat burning territory.  The heart rate monitor also tells you how many calories you burn during your workout.  I had to do a little reading in the book to get it all figured out because I haven't ever had a heart rate monitor before.  But it's not hard to figure out and I had it on and working within 15 minutes.  I am a woman and the pictures showed how to position it on a man so I had to do some experimenting to find my heart rate, but it worked with the monitor on my chest right over my heart.  Wearing this encourages me to go faster and harder to try to burn more calories during each workout.  The watch also features a great timer, an alarm and a nice back light.

I Lost 72 Pounds in 32 Weeks on Nutrisystem #NSNation

I have lost another 2 pounds this past week for a total of 72 pounds in 32 weeks on Nutrisystem.  I feel amazing.  I am able to wear smaller clothes now than I have worn in years.  I have energy to wake up early and keep going all day long.  I get up at 4 or 4:30 in the morning and go strong until I go to bed around 10 pm.  

I love my morning workouts.  They get me feeling awake and ready to face the daily challenges at work.  Work used to have me feeling exhausted from the sitting all day.  Now I have so much energy.  I want to keep this feeling forever.  I love being full of life and so proud of myself too.

Nutrisystem is the best thing I have ever done for myself.  I deserve to take good care of my body and Nutrisystem is the program that works for me to do that.  I love the variety of foods to choose from and that I feel as though I am not denying myself anything to lose weight.  I am eating a lot each day and steadily seeing the numbers on the scale drop.  I am 8 pounds away from my original goal and 28 pounds from my ultimate goal.  With Nutrisystem I know that I will reach it and stay there for the rest of my life.

I am so happy and doing the happy dance all the time now.  Want to join me in doing the happy dance?  You can save $30 on your first order with Buddy Bucks.  Send me your email address and I'll send you the Buddy Bucks so you can get started today!

Week 31 done and another 2 pounds gone.  I can't believe it.  If you told me when I started that I could come this far in such a short period of time, I wouldn't have believed it.  I have done this and I am so proud of myself.  I am not finished yet.  I have 30 more pounds to lose before I get to my goal.  When I started out I set a goal of 80 pounds total but now that I am this far in I have decided to go for the 100 pounds!  I will be within the normal weight range with 10 more pounds lost but I want to get even lower than that to the lower end of the normal weight range!  I want to be thin and stay thin for the rest of my life!


Nutrisystem is awesome!  I really thought it was going to be harder than this.  I do not have a hard time saying no to tempting foods.  I get my daily dessert to look forward to and with things like ice cream sandwiches, red velvet whoopie pies, chocolate cheesecake, who can complain?  I save my dessert until right before bed and enjoy each and every bite of it.  It's one last indulgence for the day before I hit the sack.




I told you earlier that my sister started Nutrisystem some months back and she is still steadily losing as well.  It really does work.  The sooner you start the sooner you can be at your goal and start living life in maintenance.  This morning as I packed my breakfast and lunch for the day I took a moment to reflect and pat myself on the back for doing an amazing job.  I follow the plan and the plan works giving me the wonderful results that I want!

Bob Harper's Kettlebell Cardio Shred Review & Giveaway Ends 8/14/12 at 7 PM EST

I love Bob Harper from The Biggest Loser and I recently got some kettlebells.  I was so excited when Collage Video offered Bob Harper's Kettlebell Cardio Shred DVD for me to review.  This is a 53 minute workout.  It's very difficult for me to complete the entire workout but I am able to do it and I love it.  What a great workout!  I am getting so strong and fit.  Working out is so wonderful and I love to try new things.

Bob goes from Kettlebell moves to other moves throughout the whole workout.  I really enjoy the pace of the video as well as the variety of moves.  Bob always keeps me motivated and wanting to do more and more each day that I workout with him.

Certified instructor description: A fat-burning-focused aero/tone interval program led by a “passionate and friendly” trainer. The kettlebell makes the aerobics more intense and the toning more effective (because you have to control the bell’s momentum). Like the ideal personal trainer, Bob emphasizes safety and effectiveness. He begins by explaining the move and demonstrating the correct form. Then, he puts down the kettlebell and focuses on the exerciser (combining friendly motivation with helpful tips on technique). Features a wide range of kettlebell classics — from “halos” and “weaves” to “suitcase swings” and “windmills” (plus some non-kettlebell exercises).
