Starting Week 72 with Nutrisystem


Week 72....woweee! Times flies when you're having fun on a weightloss journey! ☺

This quote popped up in my facebook stream the other day and the advice is too good not to share. Although it describes me to a "T", something tells me I'm not alone in feeling this way ~

"Focus on progress rather than perfection and on how far you’ve come rather than on how far you have left to go. One of the biggest causes of self-loathing is the hell-bent need to 'get it right.' We strive for perfection and success, and when we fall short, we feel less than and worthless. What we don’t seem to realize is that working toward our goals and being willing to put ourselves out there are accomplishments within themselves, regardless of how many times we fail. Instead of berating yourself for messing up and stumbling backward, give yourself a pat on the back for trying, making progress, and coming as far as you have." ~Madison Sonnier


Soooo, from this week on I will focus on how far I've come in my weight loss journey and at least one accomplishment. Last week I walked in the pool 1.5 hours a day for 4 days! I've been on the Nutrisystem plan for 71 weeks and as of last week have lost      lbs. At last check my [previously high] blood pressure was 118/78. How's that for focusing on the positive? ☺

    Starting Week 71 with Nutrisystem!


    This was a challenging week for me food wise. Family was visiting and although I tried to limit my calories, some of my choices when eating out caused my histamine intolerance to flair up. I've found one of the side effects of histamine intolerance is weight gain so I have my work cut out for me this week to make up for it. 


    Lunch with a view!! We were psyched to find a secluded beach area on Fenwick Island...not easy to do on a beautiful summer weekend in Coastal Delaware! Perfect spot to enjoy a Nutrisystem snack or lunch. I don't normally have the Nutrisystem bars for breakfast or lunch, but I like to keep a few on hand for traveling. They are super convenient and obviously do not have to be heated, just pack and go! 



    Jumping waves was not possible due to my injuries, but I was able to get in some pool walking this week with my sister and friends. I even had the pool to myself one morning, although I prefer walking with others because it makes exercise so much more enjoyable.



    I gained .6 lbs. last week (excuse the blurry photo). Not going to beat myself up over it, but I don't want my weight to creep up above 137 lbs. I will be extra careful this week to not deviate from the plan at all and will be skipping the "flex day" since I had several more flex meals last week than are recommended.
