Nutrisystem #NSNation {Week 17}




image_thumb1For those of you who have been following my Nutrisystem posts I’m happy to announce that the local biggest loser competition I was participating in ended on Tuesday morning! I was a little scared to head on over to the group coordinator’s house to stand on her scale because I knew hers was a little different then mine. I’d been accounting for a 2lb difference which is what I figured at the beginning of our competition but I was so close to my goal for the 10 weeks that I was scared I wasn’t going to make it. The Friday before I checked my weight and I was doing great then on Monday morning I was up (which wasn’t a huge surprise because I did have a few things I knew I shouldn’t have- but was trying to stay strong). I didn’t weigh myself at all Tuesday morning before I went for the official weigh-in just because I didn’t want to think about it. I literally had .2lbs to loose tot meet my goal so I was crossing my fingers! I think I even closed my eyes when I stepped on the scale, LOL- oh the anticipation. Of course in my head when I first saw the number pop up I was totally disappointed but had to remind myself that I was accounting for a 2lb difference- woo hoo!!! I actually met surpassed my goal of a 10lb loss by losing 10.6lbs! The final results for overall have not been announced yet but they’ve calculated everything on a document online and it looks like I’m in about 6th place out of 28 participants!! While that means no money for me because I’m not the biggest loser and my team didn’t win I’m still super excited about it- the weight loss is my win on this one!! I’m a little disappointed that it’s ended because I know I’ll lose a little motivation but my mom and I are still going strong and heading to the gym together everyday. Okay maybe not so much this week- we missed two days because we’ve been hit hard with sickness in our house and are trying to recoup from it.

So anyway, yes we have been sick in our house this week and while it’s not a stomach thing for me, taking care of sick people can really take it out of you. I’ll say it for the fifty millionth time, that’s why I LOVE Nutrisystem! Everything is convenient and quick to prepare that even though I’ve had about a million things going on at home and at the kids school this week I can still stay on plan and eat healthy! The Blueberry Muffin for breakfast, Fudge Graham Bar for lunch and easy to microwave dinners have been my best friends this week! I even got to enjoy a hamburger on Memorial Day like the rest of my family with the Flame Broiled Beef Patty and ice cream last night with the kids with the Fudge Swirl Sundae.
