It’s been two weeks since I started Nutrisystem, so here is my week 2 in review!
I’ve felt pretty good this week mentally, but I’ll admit I was a bit more restless then the previous week. I think losing 10 lbs in one week messed with my head just a bit. I expected to feel a bit better, be a bit skinnier, fit into my clothes better and honestly because I only felt all of those things slightly…I started convincing myself that the first week was a fluke and that it wasn’t going to work for me (Nutrisystem).
These are the mind games I always play with myself though, and I’m glad I can recognize that. I’m VERY self deprecating. Just ask anyone who knows me. I can never just say something good and leave it at that, I always have to follow it up with a negative to negate it. Confidence is going to be my biggest battle in this weight loss process. More so then hunger, deprivation or obstacles out of my control. I am simply not a confident person. Even the success of this blog freaks me out!
However, because I know this about myself, I think I have an edge over those who don’t realize that they have an overall lack of confidence. I just need to surround myself with positive and supportive people and those that intend to lift me up instead of tear me down.
Really good! My ONLY complaint is that my stomach hurts a bit each night. I know that’s the increase in veggie and fiber intake though and I assume that will subside soon. Even feeling bloated though, I feel thinner.
Things are going good. I’m doing well. I am getting to the point where I’m about to order my next shipment of food and I DEFINITELY will be ordering some different things. There are some items that I absolutely loved and a few (although not many), that I never want to order again. I think next month will be even more fun because I will have all my favorites on hand and there will be less uncertainty when I grab a meal from the pantry!
I’ve had the most disappointments with dinners. I’ve loved all breakfasts and all but one lunch. Dinners though, I’m noticing that I don’t enjoy ones that include mashed potatoes. I think I’m just too much of a mashed potato snob!
Overall though, I can’t believe how easy and effortless losing weight on Nutrisystem has been. Mentally I get tripped up sometimes, but the diet is too simple to screw up, LOL.
I feel 100% confident that at the end of these 4 months I will down a significant amount of weight (although I’m sure I won’t get to my goal, I have a long journey ahead of me!).
We went to Old Navy recently and I walked in and looked around the store in a way I haven’t looked around it in years. I looked at the clothes knowing that very soon, I will fit back into those clothes. I haven’t allowed myself to look at clothing like that in a long time. It just hurt too much. With Nutrisystem though, I know I’ll be back to fitting into Old Navy clothes in no time…maybe even within the next 4 months! Very exciting.
Colin is doing excellent. He makes his lunch for work the night before and has been seriously disappearing before my eyes. He has lost close to 6 lbs now and I am fairly certain all 6 have come from his stomach. Lucky guy!
He is more active and more willing to run around and do fun things as a family. I might be the heavier one, but I’ve ALWAYS been more active then my husband. Nowadays, I’d say we’re about equal. It’s been great!
