Weight Loss

Week 15 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

Week 15 was very surprising for me; I saw my biggest weight loss in any given week. At week 14, I weighed in at 140.8 lbs, finally losing a total of 10 lbs. and earning my first Nutribear.

When I weighed myself on 10/27, the results were 139.2 lbs. I was over the moon about this, because I had lost more than just one pound, and was really close to losing 2 lbs. for that week.

I have had a lot of ups and downs on Nutrisystem; I’m either staying approximately the same weight from week to week, gaining a pound back and then having to work my way back down again, or eventually getting to my current all-time low while on this journey.

A good diet really is key, and I start to see a gain when I stray off of Nutrisystem. As much as I like the food, sometimes I want a change, and that is when I start gaining and getting further away from my goals. Diet is 80% of weight loss, and exercise is 20% of it. I have been exercising more than I have in the past, and so I know that it has helped.

I have a few more goals in addition to just losing the weight that I’m going to share with you all. By next summer, I really want to be able to wear a bikini, and look and feel confident in one. This means that I’m going to have to tone my body as well as lose weight. I don’t think I have worn a bikini since I was 19 or 20, and I would love to wear one again. My other goal is to be able to wear a sexy costume for Halloween next year. I’m fairly modest, so it won’t be anything too revealing. I either plan to be a sexy mermaid (it won’t be too skimpy because October in Utah is really, really cold) or Jem from Jem and the Holograms. I’d also like to treat myself to a shopping spree for the Victoria’s Secret clothing catalog, and have started making a wish list of shirts I’d like to wear. As long as I remember to keep these goals in mind when I’m thinking about eating something, I can get myself to stay on track.

Here are my measurements for 10/27:

  • Upper Arms: 10 in.
  • Chest: 36 in.
  • Waist: 31 in.
  • Hips: 36 in.
  • Thighs: 20 in.
