Nutrisystem Nation Week 3 Update! #spon
I was dreading getting on the scale this Monday. Last week, I was at the Taste of Disney media event and all we did was eat. It was so wonderful but I knew that this might mess with my weight loss. But, lo and behold, I stayed steady at my current weight!!! I didn't lose but I didn't gain and that is huge.
I was good though. I tried everything they put in front of me and sometimes ate it all. But, for the most part, I ate in moderation. This was difficult especially when dessert came around. It was tough to put aside the chocolate mousse, cupcakes, grapefruit cake and all the other goodies.
The one thing I have learned as being part of the #NSNation Nutrisystem program is portion control. Luckily, we were not served outrageous portions. I loved that about the more upscale restaurants at Disney. They gave us normal sized portions so it was easier for me to eat less.
It was also easier for me to see how much exactly I should be eating. So I would look at the dish and try to remember the size of Nutrisystem portions and go from there.
It also helped that the food we were served was fresh and not processed. And when I did have to eat fast food at one of the parks, I opted for a salad with water instead of a burger.
It also helped that for about a week, I was doing much more exercise than I do at home. Walking around Disney was probably my saving grace because I got a lot of walking in. That probably balanced everything out.
Now I am back home and back on the plan. Well, I have been sick so I haven't been eating but when I can, it's back on Nutrisystem to continue the weight loss!
I am proud of myself because last week could have been a lot worse than it was. Portion control and moderation is the only way that I will keep the weight off. Wish me luck for next week!
