Week #3 on Nutrisystem has come to a close for me.   I’m kind of annoyed with myself and probably shouldn’t be.  I’m UP 0.2 lbs.  That means my total loss is 8.3 lbs in 3 weeks.  I had higher hopes, but you know what?
I shouldn’t be upset.  I mean, yes, I had a gain.  But I also got a very VERY very much needed date with my husband last Saturday night, and we enjoyed some Mexican food- had I not been on Nutrisystem I can tell you there would have been a queso dip on our table and I’d have ordered a full meal- this was NOT the case.  I drank a full glass of water when we got there, and did enjoy some chips, but not a ton- and instead of ordering a meal, I did a la carte.  No sour cream and guac for this girl anyway, but I asked them to go easy on the cheese.  I should be proud of myself!!

Maybe I wouldn’t have gained.  But Sunday was my dad’s birthday celebration with most of my siblings, spouses and children.  My contribution was Paula Deen’s macaroni and cheese.  (I love you Paula, but I don’t think I can “see” you for a long time…)  Which I did really really well not touching all day long while it was in the crock pot.  I did have a tiny serving of it with dinner, but had mostly veggies and a small serving of chicken.  Then it was time for dad to blow out the candles.  He didn’t understand what we meant by blowing out the candles, and I got upset.  I had a nice, big piece of cake, because, like usual, I turned to food when I got upset. 

All of this eating over the weekend led to a 2.5 lb gain on Monday morning.  So I busted my butt all week and didn’t manage to undo all of the damage done last weekend.  I’m trying to focus on the positive, that I lost almost all of what I’d gained over the weekend.  I’d just hoped for a few ounce loss, I guess. 

Regardless of what the scale says this morning, all 4 times I weighed myself (yes I am admitting that!), I’m still feeling good.  I’m STILL making better choices even with my slips and falls, and I know I’m making changes for the better. 
Today started  a new week, and I am back on track.  Hopefully the scale will just DROP a bunch next Friday.  If not, there’s always the next week!
Before I go- I finally was ‘allowed’ to try the Italian Wedding Soup I mentioned a few weeks ago-I say allowed because my 3 and 5 year old take turns choosing my meals.  They love it.  I feel like they are supporting me so I don’t mind!!  It’s kind of fun. 

The Italian Wedding Soup, though?  Oh, my.  I just placed my order for my 2nd month of foods and requested 5 of this soup- its SO yummy!!  I love it!!

  • >I completely understand what you're feeling! Feb is just a hard month for me with so many anniversaries birthdays and valentine's day and we went on a trip too. My family is sort of supportive but there are those who give me weird looks or are always criticizing my food asking me don't I just want to eat what they are. (It's hard when you live in a house with 11 people- yep my parents,their two teenagers, my husband and I, our three kids and my sister and her husband.) Don't worry a .2 loss isn't that bad and I'm amazed you were able to come back from over a 2lb weight gain on that- that's great! Keep up the good work!

  • >I did nutrisystem too. You loose a bunch at first then it slows down. It's a good program but the food gets boring.I liked the website they have and how easy it is to throw a dinner in the microwave and 1 minute later it's ready. Keep it up. Soon it will be warm enough to start walking outside again. Alit

  • >Keep up the great work! Even with the gain, you still have managed to lose it! I know im trying to keep my weight level – and i want to cry when i see the number go up – even if it is less than 1 lb…

  • >It's so frustrating how easy it is to put on weight yet how much work it is to take off the same amount, isn't it? In actuality you did a great job losing 2.3 pounds!!Tomorrow is always another day, you're still on the right track to a healthier life!
