Are you going to a party next week to watch the Super Bowl? If you’re not the hostess navigating the food offerings can be tricky. At my Weight Watchers meeting this week we discussed tips and tactics for following your plan next Sunday.
I think these are great strategies for any party. In no particular order we came up with these 8 tips.
- Eat before you go to the party.
- Take food you want to eat.
- Sit far away from the food.
- Keep your hands busy whether it be holding a glass or knitting a scarf. 🙂
- Focus on foods that fit in your plan (veggies, fruit, low calorie dips, etc.)
- Use a small plate or napkin to hold your food.
- Track what you eat.
- If you’re having alcohol have a glass of water in between each serving

Last year I lost 10 pounds following the Nutrisystem D plan as a #NSNation blogger. This time I’m buying the food and selected the plan where I select each option. I started last Sunday and after a few days of fighting hunger pangs, it’s going well.
My first night I had the Chicken enchilada with rice entree and added my own sauteed zucchini.
This is the lasagne with meat sauce. I have to say I love all the shelf-stable pasta entrees!
I worked out five days this week and ate within my plan and it showed at the scale. I was down another 1.2 pounds bringing the total loss to:
There aren’t any events planned this week that are potential roadblocks. I have to focus on getting enough rest to counteract my 5 am workouts. If it means going to bed at 7 pm, then that’s what I need to do.
