Nutrisystem {Week 24}

Nutrisystem BloggersIt has been nearly six months since I began my journey with Nutrisystem and I'm completely baffled that the time has gone by so quickly.

I clearly remember in those early weeks when I realized that this program truly works and the weight was beginning to come off... and I recall thinking that I wished I could look ahead five or six months to see the results.

Well, Chubby Me From Six Months Ago, we've come a long way. Considering that last week was the very first time that the scale went up instead of down, I'd say that it's been a pretty successful ride so far with the Nutrisystem Nation.

There have been ups and there have been downs but I actually think the tiny weight gain from last week was good for me in terms of putting things back in perspective. It's like my brain suddenly said Are you really going to continuing making these dumb decisions after all that you've accomplished?

No. No, I'm not.

Because the difference in how I feel about myself now is miles away from what I felt six months ago. My mom even pointed out the fact that it took ages for me to even appear on my own blog and then, just last week, I posted a picture of myself in a bathing suit.

That's right, I did.

I pointed out that it's really more like a tank top and shorts, but she's right. It's me in a bathing suit on my blog on the internet. The internet that the whole world is a part of.

That right there is owed 100% to Nutrisystem.

However, even after recommitting my brain at the beginning of the week, I was still concerned that the end of this past week might have done me in. My entire family was in town and that means eating out and snacks and a Sundae Bar (the focus of a future post) and that all just couldn't be good for the scale.

As it turned out...

Nutrisystem NationPrevious loss: 21.2 lbs

This week: -2.0 lbs

Total loss: 23.2 lbs

I was really just hoping to lose back the 0.8 that I had gained last, but heck! I'll most certainly take two pounds gone instead... not to mention be extremely excited about it!

Six months ago I made the best decision I've made for myself in a very long time and every day I couldn't be happier about it! If you want to see how you can lose weight and get healthy with me, visit Nutrisystem today or call 888-853-4689!

You are shrinking away! Congrats on all your success. (PS. You don't have much more to go, do you?) Don't disappear on me!

Great job girl. I know just losing the weight makes one feel so much better. I'm still battling with the 150-160's but one of these days I will break through LOL.

That's awesome! I knew you only had a minor set back and you'd be back on track in no time. Look at you in your bathing suit! It must feel good to be on such a helpful program and see results. You must be so proud proud of all he pounds you've lost too. Go, Xenia!
