Week 12- Checking In

It's week 12 on the good ol' Nutrisystem plan.  Mr. Terry (Lawd, that makes me sound like a 50's housewife!) is somewhere on week 8.

Here's what he has to say about the state of this journey:  I'm doing really well at breakfast and lunch.  I'm still struggling with my late night snacking, though.  However, I feel healthier, I have more energy and I'm confident that the scale is going to start showing that (even though I'm still stalled at 8 pounds lost).    The breakfast options are great.  I really like all the breakfasts.  I think that this is by far the thing that I'm most satisfied with on the plan.  Dinners are pretty good, too.  I'm getting a little burned out on my lunch options, though.  I think that my biggest complaint is that there's not a huge variety of lunch options.       

Here's what I have to say:  I turned 31 this past weekend.  I had a love affair with some cheesecake.  And some spicy Cajun pasta.  And some Blizzard.  And some peanut butter sandwich that just would not stop calling to me.  And a Mexican buffet with some girlfriends.  And a cookout.  Yeah- I could have made better choices.  But sometimes a girl just needs a break and she wants to celebrate her birthday birth-week with some food.  Sue me.  (Actually, don't sue me.  It's just an expression)  But yikes- I can absolutely tell that my body feels more sluggish and I have less energy without my Nutrisystem meals to help me with portion control and getting balanced meals.  I'm actually looking forward to jumping back on the wagon and getting back to those fruits and veggies and protein shakes.    With all the craziness in my eating, my weight is up one day and down the next. So this week instead of weighing in, I'm focusing on inches lost.  After all, my clothes are finally starting to fit better.  In my 12 weeks on NS, I've lost a total of 15 inches (with almost 5 inches coming off of my hips)!!!!  I'll take that! 

Time to jump back on the NS wagon.  My body can only take so long before it's crying out for something that's not junk!
