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!!
