Before I go any further in this post, let me disclose that although I'm on Nutrisystem, I am not one of the Nutrisystem Nation bloggers. I'm not sponsored by them in any way, shape, or form. I'm a paying customer, actually.
So, I broke even this week, and let me tell you, it could have been a lot worse! This past week was my first full week on Nutrisystem, and other than Angelica's birthday party, I stuck to it really well, and as of Friday night I was down two pounds. That's about the best that you can expect for healthy weight loss in a single week so I was happy!
Then came the party. The pizza. The cupcakes. The soda. I stuck to my Nutrisystem for breakfast, lunch and snack but the party hit me hard. I have a sluggish metabolism, so all of the junk I ate that night just stuck to me like glue, and it taught me a valuable lesson. MODERATION. You can completely undo a week of healthy eating in one session of pigging out. (Or, at least I can...maybe your metabolism is better than mine!)
The beauty of Nutrisystem is that on Sunday I knew exactly what I had to do to jump right back in. So I did, with both feet and it was great! No hunger. No crankiness (other than maybe the post sugar crash crankiness from the party).
So this week, I'm still at 256 and loving it. Only down 1 pound since starting Nutrisystem ten days ago, but had I not been on Nutrisystem to guide me through "birthday party season" it could have been a LOT worse! (And mine is coming up in a few weeks! Eek!)
So, this week there are no birthday parties on the horizon...and the vertigo I mentioned on Friday is starting to subside, so I'm looking forward to hitting the gym full force again. I MISS running. I can't wait to strap on my sneakers tonight and hit the pavement.
