Nutrisystem {Week 18}

It has been 18 whole weeks on Nutrisystem and every day it still seems like a lifetime ago that I started this journey with the Nutrisystem Nation. Where has the time gone?

You may remember back from Week 7 when this adorable little friend arrived to help keep me motivated:

Well, guess what? Pound now has a friend.

Say hello to Commitment.

The tag reads: "Losing 20 lbs proves you have the commitment you need to succeed, but a little inspiration from Commitment couldn't hurt!"

And you know? That part about needing a little inspiration is completely timely for me right now.

I'm not sure where my mind has been lately but my motivation seems to be lacking. I think it's my need for instant results that, as I've reach a small plateau of sorts, has me feeling sluggish in general. I've still been going to the gym and I've still been following my meal plan (which isn't hard because I'm still loving my Nutrisystem favorites), but not seeing any change always brings that small "Why bother?" voice back into my head.

That voice is extremely annoying.

I'm definitely hoping that with the warmer weather this week that the kids and I will get out for more walks in the sunshine that will help me feel better both mentally and physically. For now, though...

Nutrisystem NationPrevious loss: 20.2 lbs

This week: 0 lbs

Total loss: 20.2 lbs

I'm still telling myself that 20.2 pounds is amazing and that, as the wonderful Meredith from Nutrisystem always says, weight loss is a journey, not a race. This is another week and today is another day.

The girls both have swim lessons later today at the gym, so I've already got our schedule planned out as to going there early so that I can get in a workout before getting them ready for class. I'm going to get to 30 pounds sometime, that's all that matters. Besides, I think Pound and Commitment want to see who might show up next!

The best thing is that you haven't gained at all! That is really good! 20.2 pounds in 18 weeks is awesome!

That is so awesome that Pound has a friend, and congratulations on that! You are doing great! Get out in the sun today...I bet it will get you going again. The sun always makes me feel better.

You have nothing to feel bad about because you've already hit 20 pounds and you look amazing! We all hit plateaus.

Speaking of which I have GOT to kick myself in the tuckus and lose some pounds myself.

I like Meredith's saying! I've been feeling really sluggish lately too and I think it's going around. Lol!

Commitment is so cute. You deserve him too! Plus, you're still not gaining so remember that. :)
