Nutrisystem Week 5!
So I have been on my weight loss adventure for over a month and can proudly say I have lost 12ish pounds. Nutrisystem has once again managed to surprise me this week-I have tried a full seven days of new food and only found one that I did not like which is not a surprise since I am not an oatmeal fan in general but thought I would give it a shot. I also must say if you are on the plan to give the cranberry orange breakfast pastry a shot-I thought it was going to be weird but wanted to try each food and it is now my favorite food...move over chocolate chip scone you have been replaced! I had a mountain to climb this past week since the in laws were in town. I tend to stress eat and they love to eat out so mix the two and I found myself prowling the kitchen. After a day of stress eating and stepping on the scale I knew that the scale and my in laws cannot win-I have learned so much about portion control and life lessons from the Nutrisystem community and refuse to slip back in my old ways. I now know that I am the only one who controls my weight and how much I let slide-sure a few cookies can't hurt today but it leads to a life of binging on junk food. So after my revelation I have more control over what goes into my body-after all I am working so hard to feel good about myself and nobody should be able to make me doubt myself (thanks Nutrisystem pals for all your encouragement and relatable stories on the message board!) I am so excited to continue my journey...now I just have to survive the Halloween candy!
