Last week I hoped to be able to say that I was down 20 pounds (or more) unfortunately I can’t say that. However I can say that thanks to an amazing husband I have a new drive to stick with this amazing program and take full advantage of the Nutrisystem program and the fact that I am in the #NSNation blogger. I have been overweight my entire life, and watching my daughter run around and play I want to make sure that I am as health as possible so I can live as long as possible for her. This past week my husband and I seriously talked about adding to our family. However being overweight I am unsure if this is a good idea for us. So that is an additional drive to do all I can! So with that said I struggled this week, as I do with many diets. However unlike before I know that this program to work. That’s the only way that I could have already loss 17 pounds. I opened up my new box of food tonight and was so excited to try some of the new amazing food that they released.
I had a YUMMY Chicken Pot Pie. It was so easy to make and cooked in 1 minute. The VERY flaky top was the perfect addition to the mix to give you the feeling of having a bad for you traditional pot pie. However when you are done with this one there is no guilt! I was so surprised as to how filling it was! To follow up with this amazing dinner I treated myself to one of the frozen dessert options, Chocolate Cheesecake! YUMMY!
Stress is one of the WORST things to experience and get through while on a diet, well for me. I am a stress eater and it made it VERY difficult for me. Understanding that this is a journey and like everything you will experience ups and downs has helped, and like my husband told me, “as long as you learned from this ‘down’ it was worth it.” I am thankful for the support and encouragement. Even being a “bad” week I did see a loss! Here is my running total. I have consolidated my weeks 1-10 for room sake.
Week 1 -10 = -14.8
Week 11 = -2.2
Week 12 = -0.6
Total Loss = -17.6
My goal (again) for next week is to try to achieve the 20 pound weight loss mark. This would be an amazing treat and I know that if I use all the tips, encouragement and more I can do it! To date I want to thank everyone that has e-mailed, messaged, called and text me support and encouragement, it has really helped and it means so much to me!
