Be sure to wrap them in different directions too. You can choose any number you want! Use Press and Seal wrap to make more challenging! If you have a large group of people playing this game, try using two large balls and start them on opposite ends of each another! Use oven mitts, gloves or mittens to make the game more challenging! The prizes you put in the game will depend on the party theme and the ages of the people playing.
For our game, we had a Christmas theme and the ages were from 10 years to 15 years old. You could get really crazy with this game depending on the theme of the party! It would be really fun to see this as a baby shower game or even a bachelor party theme too! Or you could just make this a wacky type game with really off the wall type gifts too.
How about gifts ideas like a tire pressure gauge or hand warmers. The key is to make the gifts small enough to be able to wrap in the ball. Make sure they are somewhat bendable if they are not small like the socks in the photo. We played this at our office Christmas party. We had 5 tables. From the menu options, I would pick 28 foods of my choice for each of the four meals which included breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
The choices were easy as I loved almost everything they offer. The plan I chose, which is the Core plan, only includes the shelf foods instead of the frozen varieties. I got to have delicious foods such as doughnuts, pancakes, chocolate muffins, pizza, hamburger, chicken and even cake and brownies. With all the choices, it never gets boring. The meats in the shelf items are conveniently packed in a vacuum sealed wrap but were tender and taste like they are right out of the deli.
With so many varieties, I ate something different each day of the week. It was just perfectly pre-portioned meals to keep me on a healthy track. The food contains no trans fats, and it's low in sodium. And the carbs it contains are of low glycemic index.
This is why Nutrisystem food prevents fatique, reduces your appetite, keeps you fuller and energized for longer. It's safe for diabetics, too. As you will probably read in other Nutrisystem weight loss reviews, the taste is not the only thing great about Nutrisystem foods. Each meal is individually wrapped with cooking instructions which made it easy to toss in my purse and go to work.
Some of the meals are easy enough to eat while in the car. When I hear people talk about that pound cake they made the other night or watching those Tasty videos on Facebook, I am not fazed.
I stopped going to buffets and doughnut shops. I do not have the appetite for those places any longer. People have asked me how do I stick to the diet during holidays or when family decides to go out to eat.
But I can say I now have control. I allowed myself to enjoy all the foods that were offered. However, since being on Nutrisystem, I have a pretty good idea on the right foods to stay clear of, and how big of portions I should have.
I even enjoyed some bacon, a piece of cheese cake and a peep. The day after that Easter, I was nervous about stepping on the scales. A few weeks later, I had a birthday and, well, you know how that goes. I ate cake but just a small piece. It was somewhat of a struggle, but again, I have learned to eat small portions.
The biggest struggle was everyone trying to get me to eat more. People think that since you lost a few pounds, you can go back to eating the way you used too. Then there was a trip to the beach. I snacked on lots of fruit and veggies. I felt good about myself. The weight loss slowed down. Sixteen weeks had passed. It had been a fun journey. My weight loss had slowed down to losing an average on one pound a week. It was better than a gain. I wished to lose more.
I called and talked to a Nutrisystem counselor. I was eating every three hours. It seems like a lot of food but the snacks are tiny. Small amounts of healthy foods. My weight loss stalled for a couple weeks. I was warned this could happen but I was still a little discouraged.
I called a Nutrisystem counselor again. They are always so helpful. They suggested I change things up a bit. The also advised me to eat more. I was also advised to make sure I drink enough water. My weight loss took off again and the pounds started dropping again. Who knew that more is sometimes less? The hardest thing for me to give up when I started Nutrisystem was bacon.
I would eat five or six pieces without even thinking about it. I am actually allowed two slices of bacon a day as a power fuel on the Nutrisystem plan but I chose to stay completely away from it.
For me to eat bacon would be like giving an alcoholic a sip of wine. I also missed sitting down to a shared meal with my husband, but that has gotten better as he is fine with just a salad while I enjoy a healthy Nutrisystem pizza.
Which is awesome by the way. I continued enjoying the Nutrisystem foods and never got tired of them. I found ways to apply my vegetables to my meals in creative ways such as adding spinach or olives to my Nutrisystem pizza or adding spaghetti squash to my Nutrisystem meatballs. The options are never ending. Does Nutrisystem weekends off work? Yes, it does work. With this plan, I picked 20 days of meals instead of 28 which left me to defend for myself two days a week.
To transition off of Nutrisystem, I needed to learn to apply my own foods to my diet that are equivalent to Nutrisystem meals. It took seven months for me to reach my goal.
I am so excited. I am convinced that Nutrisystem is more than a cute commercial. It really does work! It took a lot of dedication, determination and discipline to get where I am. It helps when you have support.
Again, my husband has been my biggest support. I have had a lot of positive effects from my weight loss so far. Instead she was surprised at my over all health. She asked me how I lost the weight and said she will be suggesting the Nutrisystem diet to her overweight patients. My vitals were perfect and my blood work results came back perfect except I was low on vitamin D. One of the biggest concerns I hear from others about the Nutrisystem plan is the cost.
Honestly, I said the same thing in the beginning, then I did the math. With Nutrisystem it goes to neither. There are ways to save on the cost. Do not let that first price you see when you go online shock you. They are very nice and very knowledgeable. Here are some of the ways I saved. Having to pay for a diet is another way of motivation. Oh, and here is another benefit of losing weight…. Extra large clothes are more expensive, too! Nutrisystem before and after. I no longer hide behind big clothes.
I wore that bikini on the beach and have fun buying new clothes in a size 4! I have learned to eat the right foods on my own as I still order some of the Nutrisystem foods from their A la Carte menu. This keeps me on track. I continue to walk every day at least three miles and hula hoop when I have some extra energy to burn. The best advice I can give anyone is to never give up. Keep a positive attitude. If you think you can, you will. Something I learned is drink lots of water, keep those green vegetables in your diet, and not all carbs are bad.
The people that are on the Nutrisystem ads and commercials are real. I know, because I was one of the lucky ones chosen this past year!
