Waah,Waah,Waah;Nutrisystem update week 5

by Deborah Cruz

Well, this morning when I stepped onto the scale, I am fairly certain that I heard a :WaahWaah Waah! Seriously, it mocked me. This morning the scale had not moved from last weeks weigh in. I am at a7.5 pound weight loss for 5 weeks. This is not where I wanted to be this week. I know that according to guidelines, I am right on track for a 1-2 pound weight loss per week. I just thought I was going to be the exception to the rule and be at a whopping 12 pound loss by now but obviously,that is not what has happened. I can not redo the past week. The only thing that I can do is move forward with a new attitude and an even bigger determination to succeed.I know exactly why the scale has not budged.It’s not like I sat around eating bon bons and drinking coke, but there was the Saturday evening that we went out for pizza and I had a piece of pizza ( regular pizza not my Nutrisystem pizza) and 2 pieces of garlic cheese bread,and where I added carbs I minused vegetables. The moment the food hit my lips, the soundbite ” a minute on your lips, forever on your hips” played loudly in my head. I knew it was a bad choice but I made it anyways and the indiscretion has weighed heavily on my success ( no pun intended). It probably also didn’t help that I zumba’d a grand total of once last week. So, the moral of the story is for the plan to work, you have to follow the plan. I strayed and so did my success. I’ve learned my lesson.I don’t want to hear that scale mock me ever again.I won’t allow it. I’ve already done my zumba this morning.The Quebradita almost killed me but it felt awesome knowing I was  doing an “In Yo face” to the scale! Next time I consider that slice of pizza, I will be playing the soundbite “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!”

You are doing great! 7.5 lbs in five weeks is right on track (on Nutrisystem you can expect to lose 1 – 2 lbs a week). Remember it's a journey not a race 🙂 We're all here to support you every step of the way.

Everyone has bad weeks. Lucky yours was only a day! Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over agian…which you are doing! Here's to a great week ahead! I decided to get on the treadmil the other night. I had decided I was just going to do 10 minutes and burn 100 calories. Easy peesy. I decided to do it because I needed to sweat. I quickly realized that 10 minutes was not going to do the job. I turned the music up LOUD and kept on. I was having so much fun (don't ask me how as I have never before had fun working out by myself) that 1 hour went by in a flash. I burned 650 calories! I came back out to the living room and my husband says "What were you doing in there?" I answered 'kicking Thanksgiving's ass, that's what!!"

Couldn't help but laugh as I think my scale does that to me sometimes, too. Hang in there!

Thanks for the reminder that I am on track by the 1-2 weight loss standard per week. I've always been over zealous ending up in over ambitious goals.You are right. This is something that I need to keep in mind, the realistic goals.I think this may be why past diets have tanked, me not living up to my own crazy standards! I told you that you were an angel!Have a fabulous day.You just completely turned my day around!
