Checking In- Weeks 4 and 5

Ummmm, don't tell the Nutrisystem people, but I forgot to blog about the plan last week!  :-)  I'm a little bit unsure of why I forgot to blog about it because I hit a HUGE milestone! 

Drum roll, please... last week, I hit 10 pounds lost.  I've done diets where I lost 10 pounds in 10 days, only to gain it back 10 days later.  I am super pleased at the rate that this is coming off- nice and steady.   My body finally feels like it has more energy.  In addition to that, I did my monthly measurements and, are you ready for this?  I lost 13.6 inches of fluff off of my body.  13.6 inches- including 3 inches off of my hips. 

This week, I kind of fell off the wagon.  My new order of food didn't arrive before I went out of town.  I tried my best to mimic my Nutrisystem food and portion sizes.  And for the most part, I did a pretty good job of it.  However, I replaced my daily water intake with nothing but coffee and chocolate martinis.  And I may have had a big greasy hamburger the size of my head and a *few* other treats along the way.  As a result, I am totally even for this week.  I'm okay with it.  I had a few splurges, went on a four day vacation, and still managed to hang on as best as I could.  Life happens and I refuse to feel guilt about it.  I'm just recommitted to doing better this week and determined to nurture my love affair with fruits, almonds, and my Nutrisystem protein shakes.  I've said it before, but those shakes rock my world. 

I'll tell you, though, I'm not one of those people who determines my self worth by my weight.  My purpose in life is the same whether I'm a skinny mini or a little plump.  But losing a few pounds has really done a lot for my confidence.  I bought a new pair of jeans, and I totally worked 'em.  I even wore leggings for the first time ever.

How's that for confidence?  Wearing leggings and posting a picture?  Word.
I feel like I'm beginning to emerge from the unhealthy fog I wandered around in for almost a year.  Defogging is GOOD!

Several of you all have emailed me and told me that you joined Nutrisystem in the last couple of weeks.  I'm so pumped to have others walking this journey with me!  Today is the last day to get in on the 40% off sale. (which makes it cheaper than buying groceries)  If you sign up through a friend's recommendation, you get an additional $30 off your first month.  So if you want huge savings follow this link.  If for some reason your additional $30 off doesn't show up, shoot me an email (meganterry01 at aol.com) and I'll send you an email referral to make sure you get all of your discounts.  I wouldn't recommend it if I didn't love it :-)
