Nutrisystem Update : Week Eight

After my week and a half binge while on vacation my body seems to have readjusted to being back on plan.  This week I’m posting a pretty good weight loss.  I admit I thought I was going to have to work really hard to get the weight back off but really it has been nothing more then getting back to eating my yummy Nutrisystem food.  I’m 0.2 lbs from getting back to the weight I was at BEFORE vacation.

I do have some pitfalls to get through this weekend but I will admit I tend to take a little more lax on the weekends, for me this gives me the drive to continue making good healthy choices without feeling deprived.  Today we have a “Hawaiian” themed company event and then this evening we will be attending my nephews pre-k graduation in which my sister will be taking us to Outback (a nice perk when your sister owns one). I actually plan on picking healthier choices if I can as I’m not really in the mood for an all out throw your habits on the window today.

My third order of Nutrisystem came in this week which was refreshing. I find as I start to dwindle I miss having many options to chose from.  This month I decided to test the waters and order a few other meals that I had not tried.  I tried three new meals this week and here is my take.

I tried the biscuits and gravy yesterday morning.  So far my opinion is not on the favorable side but to be fair there were two factors on my side that could have factored in. One of them is I waited too long to try it and the biscuit was cold. Two my gravy was like water so I must not have prepared that correctly. I ordered two of these so I will have to give it one more shot.

The Red Beans & Rice with Chicken Sausage sounded good but I was skeptical because of a similar dinner I tried and was not a fan off. However I found that I really enjoyed this meal and am glad I ordered two. Next month I will definitely be ordering this meal once again.



I decided to also venture out and order a few new desserts. I decided to try this Coconut Almond Bar because it sounded similar to an Almond Joy. I’m not going to lie it doesn’t taste like an Almond Joy but it was decent. It is nice to have a few things to choose from depending on your mood.

    cool beans congrats!!!!

    sorry it didnt’ taste like almond joy lol !

  2. I actually REALLY like all 3 of the foods you posted about. My biscuit and gravy came out great. I did overcook the biscuit a little, but I know better for next time. The gravy was real watery at first, but I let it sit for like 2 minutes before I poured it over the biscuit and it thickened up. The red beans and rice has been my favorite since the first time I had it. I ordered 4 with my last shipment so I could have it once a week…in fact, I just got done eating it for lunch today. And the coconut bar…YUM! (Although my favorite is the fudge brownie.)

    Good luck this weekend! Melissa is coming this weekend to visit, so we already decided to eat our Nutrisystem meals for lunch and dinner, but we are going to splurge and go to Mimi’s for breakfast on Sunday…that’s just our tradition when she comes, and we can’t break that! 😉

    Have a great weekend!

    • Darn wish I was close enough to join you guys!

      I must have put too much water in it because it sat for a good 5-8 minutes. I was at work and didn’t have a measuring cup. I’m going to have to give it another try.
