I am happy to report that during Nutrisystem Week 3, I had some success. I did not have a lot of success, which is a little disappointing to me, but I will take what I can get. I realize that maintaining can be a very good thing, but I really want to shed these pounds! I did in fact have a weight loss this week – albeit, a small amount, but .4 lbs gone is .4 lbs gone! There are some things that I decided this week, that I am hoping will help me on my journey.
Toward the end of week 3, I concluded that I have got to up my exercise if I want to be successful at this weight loss thing. Dropping weight is not an easy thing for me or my body, but I have done it time and time again. All of those times that I have been successful is when I really exercise! Now that the kids are in school, and it’s just me and little “b” at home, I have to get this done! I was a good girl and did the treadmill this morning, and it felt great! I felt so accomplished, and had more energy for the day. I am hoping to stick to these workouts and hope to see more success.
The other realization I came to – which is more of a reminder than anything else, is that I can’t deprive myself. If I tell myself, “no, you can’t have that,” I go kind of crazy and almost rebel! I need to give myself allowances here and there, to maybe have a little treat, or the occasional dining out experience. I just need to make healthier choices when I do it, but also to maybe cut back during my other meals. I will be a happier me if I don’t feel deprived.
I am feeling pumped and motivated for a more successful week. I have got to get below 170 this week! I should come up with a reward or something. Any suggestions?
Starting weight: 173.8
Last week’s weight: 170.8
Current weight: 170.4
