Weight Loss

Week 49 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

Having a 4-year-old, a husband with bad eating habits, and hobbies that involve more sitting than standing are not very helpful with my weight loss goals. I prefer to do any sort of exercising without anyone else around. Unfortunately, that never happens. It’s very rare that I am all alone at home, and when that happens I steal a few precious moments of silent reading time so I can keep up with my book reviews.

I know that only minimally watching what I eat and taking in no exercise whatsoever, I can stay around 138-140 lbs. However, that is not my weight loss goal, and in order to get back to 135 lbs. (or better yet, less than 135 lbs.!) I am going to have to control myself when I go out to eat and get comfortable with working out when everyone else is home.

I wasn’t surprised this week that I saw no weight loss. I have been slipping back into old habits, which is surprisingly easy since I am always handed so many temptations. I was miserable when I didn’t give in to cravings, so now when I have started to want certain foods, I let myself have them. Thankfully this doesn’t happen every single day, but with no exercise, the weight most certainly does not fall off.

I’m still maintaining 138.4 lbs. in my 49th week on Nutrisystem. Again, I was expecting this, and I’m grateful that the number was not higher. My weight loss journey has not been an easy one, but I have learned so many things about myself and about food in the last year. My 50th week will be my last weight loss post, and I will share with you all my future plans to drop the last of the weight I want to lose.

  • Weight: 138.4 lbs.
  • Upper Arms: 11.5 inches
  • Thighs: 20 inches
  • Waist: 31 inches
