I just finished week 11 of Nutrisystem and I lost another 1 pound. This means I have officially lost 3 of the 4.6 pounds that I gained in that one weekend at BlogHer. It’s amazing how easy it is to gain the weight and how near impossible it is to lose it. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am over 40? I was warned that women over a “certain” age have a more difficult time losing weight than their younger counterparts. Have you found this to be true?
The Nutrisystem food makes it easier than it would be trying to figure this all out on my own but it is still hard losing weight the right way. What I mean is that when you eat right, move and are accountable to yourself it forces you to take stock of who you are and why you are doing this; how you got where you are and why you want to change. It’s been a real eye opener for me.
I used to want to lose weight to look good in my clothes. That was it. There was a time when I thought the motivation behind wanting to lose weight had something to do with appearance and then I realized it had more to do with control and other times I was using my weight as a disguise, to hide from others and hide from myself. The weight was like a giant warm, safe snuggy that I wrapped myself in for protection and then one day, it just became cumbersome and I wanted rid of it. I want rid of it.
How did you decide that you wanted to lose weight? Why? What motivates you to get healthy?
