Starting Week 20 on Nutrisystem

This week started off with an uplifting encounter. A teller at my bank who I hadn't seen in a few months said to me "I want to do whatever it is you're doing". I've had success mentoring others in business, but never have I inspired anyone where my weight is concerned. I wonder if she knows how much her comment inspired me? This is becoming about more than just weight loss. It's as though I'm seeing everything through different eyes. I needed to switch my focus to something healthier and more positive and I'm thankful I found that with Nutrisystem. 

I still love food and always will, but I now find myself researching things like how many calories different exercises burn. Never saw that coming! This article on The Leaf explains it would take nearly 4 hours of biking 22 miles to work off my former go-to meal {cheeseburger, fries and a coke}. Holy cow, what an eye-opener! When you look at food from that perspective, it's just not worth the momentary satisfaction.        

That realization was put to the test as the week went on. A friend who was just 41-years old was killed in a car accident Monday night, a friend of 40 years who always treated me like a daughter passed away Saturday night as did another friend's Dad. Heaven sure has been busy this week! I have always comforted myself with food. I've learned during these past few months though, for me, that only leads to more sadness. I stuck to the plan and tried my best to work off some of the sadness and frustration by jogging in the pool for 10 hours this week. 

Most days I burned more calories than I consumed, but I guess the stress didn't help. Still, I ended the week with a .8 lb. weight loss for a 19-week total of 25.6 lbs. I'm thankful to Nutrisystem for helping me become healthier, stronger, and for giving me the tools to not give up when life throws a punch...or two...or three. Wishing everyone better days and suggesting we all go hug someone we love.
