NutriSystem, The Double Glance

Last week I rejoiced in my own personal victory for losing vacation weight in just 7 days, with thanks to the NutriSystem program. I had lost the exact amount of weight which I had gained on our holiday to an all-inclusive resort in Cuba, a couple weeks ago. My stress this past week was at peak levels due to both my email and site being hacked, and I am a complete emotional eater. So many times I wanted to run to the cupboard and dive into the biggest bag of chips I could find. Was my emotional eating ever tested this week!

I don’t have complete control over my self discipline when it comes to food, and I don’t know if I ever will be. Yet I can say with certainty that I have learned to make better food choices most of the time. If I do eat out {which is seldom since NutriSystem is so convenient}, I grab a salad or a small sandwich. I do have a love for water with fresh lemons in it though, so that is my drink of choice for most of every day. Side note: my daughter thinks this is what ‘Lemonade’ is, so she drinks it as much as I do, relishing in the fact that she gets unlimited ‘Lemonade’. It’s so funny!

Anyway, when stress was high this past week, I found myself in front of ‘old faithful’ many, many times {aka, the pantry doors}. Instead of eating through my emotions though, I would grab 3 chips and then walk away telling myself that I worked too hard to have any more. Over indulging just wasn’t worth it. It’s funny how this journey has changed me, since I could normally make all sorts of excuses for eating poorly. But now, reminding myself of my goals and why I am doing this, works!

Week 14 results: -3 lbs
Total weight loss to date: -27.5 lbs

After having such a good week, last week – I was so happy to see a 3lb loss! I was a little shocked and had to re-check the scale a couple of times. That double glance at that displayed number felt great!
