It has definitely been nice to not have to worry about my food and my meal planning this week. And I lost another 1.8 pounds! I am winning at Nutrisystem even though the rest of my life appears to be questionable.
Week 1: -2.4
Week 2: -3.8
Week 3: -1
Week 4: -1.8
Month 1 Total: 9 pounds lost!
I did have my first difficult week this week. Mostly, I think, because my p-e-r-i-o-d is coming and so I want to Eat All The Things. I had one actual day where I thought all day about cheating because I really wanted something snacky. Not my unlimited veggies. Something delicious and horrible. Instead I ate an extra 1/4 cup of almonds and then some water with no calorie lemonade added in.
Then, I had a meal that I didn't like and didn't want to eat. And since I have 28 days of each meal, I can't really try something else because it would screw me up. So I decided on a giant salad with a bit of cheese and dressing, and some whole grain crackers. It ended up being fine but sucked slightly because I usually really enjoy the Nutrisystem meals so I felt like I was missing out.
AND THEN. (The woe is nearly done, I swear.) I went to a game night. It was so much fun, I loved it. However, they had so much delicious food - NACHO BAR ZOMG. I ate before I went so I wasn't hungry, but the social aspect of it was kind of weird. Everyone was eating but me and I didn't know most of the people so I felt weird being all, "I'm on a diet and stuff" because I didn't want to make people feel bad for enjoying food. Which I'm sure they couldn't care less what I ate or didn't, but I'm neurotic. I should have brought something with me, because everything Nutrisystem is totally portable. Maybe next time, unless they were freaked out by the bedroom eyes I kept giving their bowls of nachos and decide that I am never invited again, ever.
But! I found some new foods that I totally love again this week.
|Honey Wheat Bagel|
Slightly sweet and really, really good.
Definitely doesn't taste like "diet food."
For some reason I thought these would be Meh.
Nope. I was sad that I didn't have three!
|Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts|
I told Mark that I felt like I was eating at a nice restaurant. SO GOOD.
I served it the same as this pic - brown rice and zucchini with Italian seasoning.
I am so excited to start month 2. I am hoping to lose at least 8 pounds, but I think at this point of any diet there will be a plateau. I have been really lucky so far though! Plus I think I am ready to exercise again so that will help. I'm still loving the Nutrisystem plan!
