My Nutrisystem Weight Loss Journey: Week 9


I've never liked the word diet, and one thing I love about Nutrisystem is that it's all about making healthy (and proper) choices!  I don't feel like I'm missing out, I'm not always hungry, and I don't feel like I'm on a diet at all.  Losing weight is all about choices and Nutrisystem has taught me how to succeed.

I volunteer at my children's elementary school, so I am around parents, students and staff every day of the school week.  I've been a very active parent, volunteer and playground duty for several years now... since my 6th grader started Kindergarten, so I'm "well-known" by many.

In the past week I've received several comments from parents, staff and even a student...

Staff member:  "You are a mere shadow of the person you used to be.  Doesn't it feel great?"

Parent:  "WOW, Look at you. You've lost a TON of weight!" 

And this one is my favorite of all because it came from a 2nd grader at school, and we all know how brutally honest children are - good or bad...

"You are sooooo skinny!  Why are you so skinny now?"

I don't expect people to comment on how much weight I've lost, but it's always nice to hear.  It's another way of knowing that what I'm doing is really working!

During my 9th week on the Nutrisystem program, I lost...

  0 pounds! 

That keeps my total weight loss at 25 pounds!

Am I disappointed?  Absolutely!  Am I going to let this knock me down?  No way!  I knew that somewhere along the way that I would hit a bump in the road, and this is my bump.  I'm just going to roll over it and keep going.

25lbs lost is an awesome accomplishment! I had my best luck losing weight (55lbs lost) when I was on Jenny Craig. Unfortunately when I was no longer on it, I gained back 25lbs because I don't feel it really taught me how to eat healthy. I relied too much on the prepackaged meals. I am working on losing 40lbs right now on my own with exercise and eating healthy. It's taking me a little longer but I am going to keep it up!
Keep up the good work!
