However, after pointing out that I seem to be stuck at my current weight, a friend shrugged and said something along the lines of, "Well, maybe you're at the weight that is right for your body."
My answer? I'm not willing to accept that.
Whether or not she is right (because it sure does seem like I'm destined to have the scale show me the same numbers over and over again), I'm not satisfied quite yet. And, after all, my opinion is truly the only one that matters, right?
On the one hand, I'm still amazed that losing 25 pounds with Nutrisystem was as easy as it was. Eat their yummy food, watch the numbers go down, repeat. Done!
While running errands with Big Sister E this weekend, we had a few extra minutes in the mall, so she happily came into the dressing room with me in a department store to help critique a few items I pulled off of the clearance rack. Her response to each of them? "It looks TOO BIG, Mommy." And, huh. She was right.
One the other hand, however, being a part of the Nutrisystem Nation has taught me that I'm in control over the results that I experience in my weight loss journey and that if I want to see more results, I'm the one who has to be accountable.
Did I follow the program as much as I should have this past week? No.
Am I going to sit here and grumble about it and beat myself up? No. Well, maybe a little.
But, then! Then I'm going to remember that this journey isn't over yet and no matter what the numbers say, I've truly already won.
Today is another day and this week is another week. I will be out of town this upcoming weekend attending the ABC Kids Expo and my Nutrisystem lunch bars (my favorite for travel!) are definitely coming with me. Combining those with the miles that I'll be walking around that convention center and hopefully next Monday I'll be even a tiny bit closer to my goal. Only time will tell!
This week: 0.0 lbs
Total loss: 25.2 lbs
