I Finally Won My New Year's Resolution With Nutrisystem

One more I can check off my list.

I'm not one for New Year's resolutions. Every year my friends brag about all the old things they are going to change or the new things they're going to take on once January 1st comes.

Me, on the other hand, I can't remember the last time I made a New Year's resolution. And if I do, I'm definitely not posting it on Instagram with #newyearnewme! Eyeroll, please.

What I am guilty of doing every New Year is re-upping my annual gym membership. And exactly why? That I don't know, considering last year I used it a record number of five times!

Each holiday season, I enjoy myself to the max (no regrets). But once the holidays are over, I feel like such a slob that I always end up renewing my membership. And then I never go, and it costs me hundreds of dollars. It's a vicious cycle—I know.

This year I had a long-overdue epiphany, I'm not a gym rat, and I never will be. So, I'm not renewing my membership. But I do need to find something that will help me get back on track after the holidays. Maybe even lose a few pounds.

I need something that fits easily into my life, requires little input from me, and will actually work. I'm not asking for much, am I??

After a few quick google searches, I noticed that everyone's talking about weight loss meal plans. These pre-made meals didn't look like anything I'd eat. That would be a definite no from me!

And that's when I found exactly what I was searching for: Nutrisystem. They deliver perfectly balanced and portioned meals and snacks right to my doorstep. I don't even have to leave my house—score!

Their meals, snacks, and shakes are chef-created, healthy versions of my favorites: Pizza, Mac & Cheese, Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken. And then there's their chocolate cupcakes and ice cream sandwiches. I have a serious sweet tooth, so these especially caught my eye.

New Year, New You!

Do you want to know the best part about these tasty Nutrisystem meals? They're specially created to put your body into fat-burning mode. You get to eat five to six times a day and lose some weight at the same time. Is that actually possible?

The food looked like everything I normally eat, and it should fit into my daily routine, maximizing my free time. Plus, their plans are proven to work. I definitely needed to try this. And after the holidays, New Year's is the perfect time...when I need it most.

The New Year arrived, and so did my Nutrisystem meals. I chose their Uniquely Yours Plan, which provided 4 weeks of meals and snacks.

Considering they're healthier versions of my favorites, I doubted the meals could be as good as promised. I was sooo wrong—they were super delicious. My friends call me a hamburger connoisseur, so I started with the hamburger, of course. It was unbelievable! How was it only 240 calories?

In my first week, I lost 3lbs,* and I've continued to steadily lose a few pounds each week. The plan is so easy to follow, and I have more energy and feel much healthier.

I'm now on the fourth and final week of my Nutrisystem plan, and I'm seriously very impressed. I've even started going for a light walk when I get home after work—it's free with no membership required!

My boyfriend is sick of hearing me rave about it, so he ordered his own from their men's plans. There are Vegetarian and Diabetic plans, too.

Whatever your needs are, Nutrisystem has a plan that can guide you to make better food choices, feel healthier, and help you lose weight!
