Lucky Day: 13 on Friday the 13th

Nutrisystem is providing me the Nutrisystem food free of charge for my weight loss journey. The compensation received will never influence the content of my posts. No other form compensation has been offered or given.

I should have posted yesterday but I wanted to let you know that I am down 13 pounds this week on Friday the 13th!! Woo-hoo. One more pound this week. I was very good this week as well. And I am happy to report that my appetite has come back. That's actually probably not a good thing but at least I don't have some weird terminal illness since I am hungry again. LOL

This week I decided to go to the Nutrisystem forums and see if I could find some recipe ideas for my food. After poking around a little and reading some very good and interesting recipes, I created one for my Black Bean Soup. I decided to make bean tacos. So I got 2 tortillas and baked them up. I added less water to the soup than it requires so I could have a better consistency. Then I spread the beans on tortillas, added a little low-fat grated cheese, added some avocado slices, jalapenos, shredded lettuce and to top it off some salsa. I made tostadas! Now the tortillas aren't so bad because they don't have that many calories so I did pretty well. They were delicious.

It seems a lot of people on the program found that instead of eating the Nutrisystem food as is, they decide it's fun trying to create new recipes. Of course, I am too lazy to create one so I just go find out what others are doing and let me tell you some people get creative! So now that I found another way to mix it up, I am hoping that the weight loss continues. And who knows, I might just create a new recipe myself. Of course, it would be a willy-nilly one.

Take a look at what the Evil Wii Fit Plus told me yesterday. My Wii Fit Age is 25!! Ha! Suck that Evil Wii. That's fantastic especially since my real age is 45!! Of course, my Mii is still looking like a stuffed tamale so I shouldn't be that happy. But that's pretty darn good!

I don't have much else to report except remember when I hit 15 pounds, which I am hoping will be in 2 weeks, I will post a picture I took when I started the program and one of me know. I really don't want to post a picture but I will be halfway to my goal and I should document that.

So as I leave you I wish you a good Friday the 13th!! Avoid black cats, don't spill salt and please don't walk under ladders!!


  1. I really need to follow your lead and get going on my fitness plan! You are awesome!

  2. Congrats! You are true inspiration. I have decided to run the San Diego Half Marathon next year and need to lose a bit of weight. I've lost a few pounds. I know I can reach my goal. Two more can do it. Cheers!
