Nutrisystem {Week 38}

Nutrisystem Bloggers Last week some of our lovely friends had Big Sister E, Little Sister B and I join them for lunch to celebrate a birthday. The conversation turned to weight loss at one point and of course I relished in the compliments that I received. Who doesn't love to be told that they look good?

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!

Your friend has a valid point about the weight loss. However, I can understand how you feel. I still think you are doing great. Just not gaining is a huge accomplishment!

Have fun at the expo. That is something I've always wanted to go to.

I started weight watchers today - I tried Nutri system but could not find a meal I liked.. You will get over this hump and the pounds will drop again - keep it going!

Yep your friend may be right. I was stuck for three months and realized I had to stop as my body was ready to be done with losing. I completely understand how you feel and you may not want to be done, however keep going! You have done amazing and look fabulous. I am so proud of you!

Always do what is right for you. You have done a wonderful job losing weight! So you should definitely be proud of that. But if you want to lose more then go for it! It's true, your opinion is the only one that matters. :)
