Nutrisystem Week 17! #NSNation
I am moving right along on the Nutrisystem weight loss program and have finished 17 weeks on the plan. Excuse me while I feel a sense of accomplishment here. Let me tell you why: Just sticking to a plan for 17 weeks, is an accomplishment in itself for me. I don't think I have ever made it passed about 3-4 weeks on other plans. Many reasons why including the food tasted bad, took too much time to prepare or took too many ingredients that I just couldn't afford or quite simply, I was always hungry.
I am never hungry on Nutrisystem and there are some meals that I "force" myself to eat simply because you should eat all the required food every day.
So let me tell you about my week:
-Last Sunday was my Birthday. I am not at the point where I believe that I can have non Nutrisystem plan food and get right back on track. Been there, done that with the Holidays and such. Unfortunately, each time I splurged on non plan foods, it took forever to get back on track for me and I end up with a few weeks of no losses or gains. So until I feel I can eat non plan meals here and there for special occasions, I won't be splurging any. So I didn't eat anything "good" for my Birthday and I am okay with that.
Let's talk about clothing for a minute. Since I have been overweight for most of my life, clothing has always been a struggle. Needing to find larger sizes in styles that I liked, needing to shop in the fat stores etc. It was just something that I got used to over time. I would buy a top or bottoms only to get them home and they would be too small. So I would return them and go up a size or whatever.
This week has been quite interesting for clothing. My mom got me a few birthday gifts which included a pajama set. The set consisted of a t-shirt and knit pants. Size 22/24, which is typical of what I would normally wear.
So I was beyond SHOCKED that I needed to return the set because they were too BIG! Say WHAT?! TOO BIG?! That NEVER happens to me! haha And I don't mean a little big and I could deal with it. They were so big even with the pants tied at the waist, they fell down. The smaller 18/20 fits much better.
So that made me feel REAL good and hopefully I can begin to overhaul my clothing collection with new smaller sizes in other things real soon.
Last weeks weight: 313.2lbs
This weeks weight: 313.0lbs
Total loss for the week: .2lbs (hey, it's better than NO loss, I will take it)
Total overall loss in 17 weeks: 24lbs
