I'm starting my last month blogging for Nutrisystem...wah!!! Going to miss it so much. This past week was a busy one and included a trip to NY and NJ, a visit with family, a fun day at Jones Beach on Long Island, sightseeing on the ferry, and a delicious dinner at an Italian restaurant. Since the trip was unexpected, I didn't have much time to plan meals, but thankfully had enough Nutrisystem on hand that I didn't have to worry. Since I was only able to get in a couple of hours of exercise and always retain extra fluid when traveling, I was certain I would return home with a 5-lb. weight gain. For the first time since I've started this journey, I was mindful about it but didn't obsess over the scale. I think that's a good thing! Also got to see a beautiful old tall ship that was docked at the Cape May-Lewes ferry and enjoyed a Nutrisystem breakfast at the beach ~
I realized while walking through the grocery store yesterday, I now mainly shop the perimeter of the store. I noticed some yummy-looking desserts on my way to the register and didn't have my usual longing for them. It's taken me a while, but I'm starting to break my old habits and retrain my brain. As long as I keep the weight off once I reach my goal, I'm okay with slow and steady.
Weighed in at 153.4 which is a 1-lb. loss for the week and a 20-week total of 26.6 lbs. I'm encouraged to see the scale continue to move in the right direction each week. Still have a long way to go, but I can do this! Thank you, Nutrisystem!! xox
