Progresso Light Chicken Noodle Soup #ProgresswithProgresso #ad

Resolution: Healthy Eating

January 7, 2016 Sarah Coggins

As a stay at home mom, I’m constantly busy doing something to help take care of everyone else. Which means, while I typically get our dinners planned and on the table, sometimes I get distracted during the day and forget about lunch for myself. Never a good thing.

In the past 8 years, along with becoming a mom to 2, I’ve also lost 50 pounds. Yes, you read that correctly and that was aside from the pregnancy weight. I’m literally 50 pounds less today than my weight pre-kids in January 2008 when I had a wake up call and knew I had to make a change. I wanted to be healthier for myself, for my hopeful future pregnancy, and for my future children. I didn’t want my weight to cause health issues or slow me down.

Healthy Eating Difference: Then & Now
The proof! At my heaviest in January 2008 and a selfie today at my new healthy weight!

There were no secrets, shortcuts, or fad diets in those 8 years – especially not when I was pregnant. It was simply diet and exercise. I learned along the way that those 2 things were the key for me to loose the weight and now to maintain my current (much healthier!) weight.

On cold winter days like today, I’m grateful that fixing myself a healthy lunch can be as easy as opening up a can of Progresso Light soup and warming it up. Chicken Noodle tends to be one of my favorites, but is far from the only option Progresso offers in their Light soups. I found 10 different flavors while grocery shopping at Publix earlier in the week – there is something for everyone.

    Progress Is Delicious when using Progresso soups in the New Year. They offer a healthy alternative for lunches and dinners. They are satisfying and full and can be used in dishes to help make you even more full. We are looking forward to using Progresso to make our New Year delicious!

    Eating healthy foods always seems to be a challenge, but Progresso soups look easy to make and tasty. It will make eating healthy a simple choice. My boys love chicken noodle soup. They call it carrot soup because of all the carrots.

    Healthy living begins with healthy eating! I've been working towards getting the family on a healthy eating path for some time now......always a work in progress! We've been fans of Progresso for many years......

    Progresso can help me keep something on-hand for those rushed nights where dinner is the last thing on my mind. A healthy meal is perfect if it's practically ready in moments!
  • Tanya @ Mom's Small Victories January 14, 2016 at 11:16 am
    I love eating soup and salad for lunch when I'm home by myself during the week. It helps me maintain a healthy weight and alleviate some of the pain from my chronic illness. I need to stock up on some Progresso Light Soup.
  • Julie S. January 14, 2016 at 1:41 pm
    I need to add these to my lunch meal plans! Plus, they would be great for when I sub!
  • Shasta January 15, 2016 at 9:06 am
    You look great! Congratulations on your weight loss. :) Making changes can be so difficult, but it looks like you made a commitment to be healthier and stuck to it.
  • SherryH January 15, 2016 at 10:04 am
    Soup is a delicious, filling lunch that leaves me ready to face the rest of my day. Even better if I can save money while stocking up - though, sadly, there are no Publix in my area... :(
  • Jaime January 15, 2016 at 12:45 pm
    I just bought several cans of Progresso soup this week as my house is recovering from all things respiratory related. :-/ Your before/after photos are so inspirational! You look amazing.
  • Julie @ Running in a Skirt January 16, 2016 at 9:17 am
    I love a good soup! Tomato Basil is my favorite! Congrats on the transformation!
  • Sarah Halstead January 18, 2016 at 9:13 pm
    Ohhh! Those look great! I didn't realize you had lost so much weight. You look good. The soups would help me not eat out every day!
