I am so excited to announce that I am a Nutrisystem Nation Blogger!

Nicole’s weight loss this week: gained 2.2 lbs in 2 weeks

Nicole’s Total weight loss since start of program: 20.9 lbs.

When you look at our total weight loss this week things are going well. When you look at the weight loss/gain in the last 2 weeks it’s not so great. I know this is a journey and everything but life has been throwing us some major curveballs lately which has been interfering with the dieting big time! This week I have had this strange pain on the side of my head. It’s not a headache, it’s PAIN. I have been to the doctor 3 times this week which is pretty unlike me and have been taking around the clock Advil and painkillers once I get home which is VERY unlike me. It just hurts that bad.

Jamie has been sick all week and the two of us are big babies. Any excuse we need to sabotage ourselves and we’ll take it. We both need to get on the scale every day. I know some people won’t agree with that but Jamie is a champion weight loser and a champion weight gainer. Just like he can easily lose 8 lbs in a week he can gain 8 lbs in a week! So weighing ourselves every day is necessary!

My job involves some travel to the surrounding counties and when I am in the car it is really easy to make bad choices. I need to just be better about bringing all the food I will need with me in the morning every day and then I won’t have an excuse to grab something bad. I love seeing the number go down on the scale and I know Jamie does too – I want us to want that feeling over how much we want food! Some weeks it’s there and other weeks it’s not. It’s like those cartoons with the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other shoulder! We have been listening to the wrong shoulder and are committed to making a positive change!

Jamie’s this Week’s weight loss: gained 17 lbs in 2 weeks

Jamie’s Total Weight Loss: 31.0 lbs

Well the end of week number 12 has come. I am still enjoying the Nutrisystem program, while realizing that as easy as it is for me to lose weight when I follow the program, I am responsible for my success or failure. I had much success prior to the last couple of weeks because I was diligent following the plan as well as my challenge to drink a gallon of water daily at work, in addition to any water I drink before or after work.

I have proven to myself that the Nutrisystem program works, now I need to get back on track and stop sabotaging my weight loss. I need to keep focused on my food addiction, knowing that I must do everything I can to not stray.

I am glad I have to write these posts to hold myself accountable for my weight loss and staying on Nutrisystem. Writing about my struggles staying on track is much better than just giving up and gaining all the weight I have recently lost and more. I am trying to figure out the underlying reasons for my attempts to sabotage my weight loss.
I am going to spread out my eating a little more this week. Sometimes I tend to eat my power fuels and smart carbs together with meals. I am going to stretch it out and eat many small snacks throughout the day to curb my hunger in-between meals.

While I was writing this post and talking with my wonderful wife I may have figured out a big problem I am having. I stopped weighing myself every day. I stopped because I convinced myself that it was getting discouraged on the days I didn’t see a weight loss. I think this was just an excuse to not be accountable. I will go back to weighing myself daily, and I know this will keep my honest with myself. I look forward to a more positive weight loss next week.

Great post and thx for sharing. Hang in there, disappointing moments will pass. I love NutriSystem, it works if you let it. I was on it for 6 months and lost 40lbs. Although I cannot do it now, I tried to maintain by using all that I’ve learned from it. Take it one day at a time, one hour even if you have to. Continue to drink LOTS of water. Personally, I don’t think weighing yourself daily is a good idea…too easy for let downs. I think weekly is far more enough. I’m curious, how does one become a brand ambassador or blogger for Nutrisystem. I’ve love an opportunity such as yours. Wishing you continued successes with your journey!! :)
