Right here was my last Nutrisystem update and about a week later I fell off the healthy eating wagon. And I fell hard (and headlong into the Halloween candy). Some minor changes in my schedule and some company made my mind start playing the old negative self-esteem tapes. Since then I’ve been trying to get back on track and its been challenging until I realized it doesn’t have to be. I jumped right into the Nutrisystem website where there is a TON of support available, not just for those using the Nutrisystem food, but for everyone. How cool is that? I’m going to show you.
Once you create an account on the Nutrisystem site and log in, you’ll find a toolbar across the top of the page. You can see the Shop and Our Menu links but I want to draw attention to the other drop-down menus: My Program, Community, Tips and Recipes and Success Stories. Here are some of the free features in those areas of the Nutrisystem website:
- My Program: Log My Food (Meal Planner), Log My Weight, Log My Measurements, Log My Exercise, Log My Journal, Progress Report, My Fitness, Exercise Plans, Nutribears
- Community: My Page, My Inbox, Member Pages, Blogs, Chat Rooms, Discussion Boards and Tickers (to add to my signature in the discussion boards)
- Tips and Recipes: News and Articles, The Daily Dose, Recipe Center, Dining Out Guides, Recommended Grocery Foods
- Success Stories: Overview, Celebrity Stories, Share Your Story
I’m a sucker for success stories. I’m always impressed by real people with real results so I headed over to the Overview page of Success Stories where I found I could read about people who lost the same amount of weight that I need to lose. I read quite a few of those and got pretty inspired.
I also checked out the Discussion Boards where there is some serious community-building, both on the topic of healthy eating/weight loss and lots of other topics as well.
(Almost) Needless to say, I’m going to hang around the Nutrisystem website to put my practice some healthy thinking this week!
For next week, I’m going to try out a new feature, Mind Makeover, that teaches you what to change, how to change and how to make it last. I can’t wait!
If you’re interested in getting healthy (and losing a little or A LOT of weight), check out Nutrisystem or call (888) 853-4689 for more information! Right now, Nutrisystem is having a Fall Sale featuring their lowest prices of the year on all plans!
