Nutrisystem Nation Week 5 Update! #spon
It's my weekly update on my weight loss. I am down less than a pound. I have no idea why I am stalled but I think with the cold I caught and the medicine I had to take, my body has not been cooperating. I had so many throat drops and cough drops that I am sure I was all sugared up!
This past week I actually went back on the Nutrisystem plan somewhat because there were times that I just wanted to eat soup or toast and not the meals. The meals are good but when you are sick, you want comfort food. I also ran out of the Nutrisystem soups, which made me sad but I ate them all!
I think my main problem has been 2 weeks of no exercise and I need to get back on the treadmill. Last week, I was still a little sick although I actually felt so much better than when I was really sick. So I passed on the exercise. This week is time I get back. Even if I only do a mile, I am jumping on the treadmill today.
On Monday, I went to Charlotte with my husband to run an errand. That meant lunch out but I am getting really good at lunch out. When push comes to shove, I choose the salad with dressing on the side. We went to eat Mexican food, which can be deadly for me, but I ate a chicken salad and even asked them to hold the beans, chips, sour cream and guacamole. I was proud of the better choices I am making.
I am also loving the Nutrisystem food. The daily shake is something I look forward too. I have it when I am feeling hungry and it helps me curb my hunger. Other times, I have my shake with dinner so it is a treat. It is especially great when I am having my Nutrisystem burger. I feel like I am having a great diner meal!
So there we have it about half a pound down this week. I am hoping when I start exercising again, the weight falls off a little faster. But I have to keep in mind that the Nutrisystem program allows for slow weight loss the right way. So a pound or two a week is normal.
Have a great week and wish me well!
Total weight loss to date: 6.5 pounds!
