I am sure you all can guess why I have been avoiding this. Let's just say for the past week because of my trip to Cancun, I was off the Nutrisystem program for a week. So when I got on the scale this week, I was scared I might have gained a lot of weight.
Well, I gingerly stepped on the scale and found out that I hadn't really gained or lost weight. I am up a few ounces but I am not sure how correct that is since my scale sucks! But I am so happy. But I really shouldn't be surprised. Sure I cheated some in Mexico eating some dessert but mainly I stayed on my portion control kick.
I also have been good about making better choices. In Atlanta, I went to eat at Ruby Tuesdays and I wanted to get the little sliders they have but opted for a soup and salad instead. In Mexico, I have a egg white omelet instead of eggs and bacon. I ate grilled chicken and veggies instead of something worse. I did have a burger one day and ate half. Luckily, the portions at the Dreams Resort were small. They have very nice portions and not like we have here in the U.S. Part of that is probably because they are all inclusive and that cuts down on waste but they worked out well for me.
I did also have some liquor when at the resort as well. I usually don't drink so that might not have been the best thing but when in Rome. . . I also had dessert but we split one and the other times, I ate half.
So I am very proud of myself for learning to eat better and I have to thank the Nutrisystem program for that. It really helps knowing what I should and shouldn't be eating and how much.
This week, I am back on the plan and hoping to continue the weight loss. I have to admit though that because I get sent the same food every two weeks, I have grown tired of some of it. But if you sign up for the plan, you can pick and choose your foods so that might not happen. But when I don't want to eat something, I opt for a salad instead and that helps a lot. I am finding that a good salad with a little protein is a wonderful meal. Well, I am hoping to report some weight loss next week. I also have to start getting off my butt and exercising again. I swear once you get some time off to relax on the beach, you never want to go back to exercising but I have to. So wish me luck!!
