Feeling a Little Down - Sicky Version

Nutrisystem is providing me the Nutrisystem food free of charge for my weight loss journey. The compensation received will never influence the content of my posts. No other form compensation has been offered or given.

Been a little tired this week. I have been a little under the weather and not eating regularly and feeling achy and poopy. I am down a few ounces this week and not happy about it. I feel like I am doing well but it seems like I hit a plateau. I hate hitting plateaus because it means that I need to step it up. Hopefully, I will feel better next week.

You know I always see those Marie Osmond commercials about how she lost 50 lbs. on Nutrisystem and I want to lose 50 lbs. on Nutrisystem. I wonder how long it took her and if the Nutrisystem people are wondering why I am not losing like she did. I know weight loss is a long journey but I want to lose it all NOW! Boo!

By the way, I love Marie Osmond. I remember when I was younger, I wanted to be just like her. Silly, isn't it? And I love Donny. When I was 5, I couldn't decide if I wanted to marry him or Michael Jackson. Obviously, I didn't marry either. I was so excited when Donny won Dancing with the Stars. Yeah, I watch Dancing with the Stars and love it!! Don't judge me! It is so one of my guilty pleasures. I have no idea why I love it so much but I do.

Anyway I digress, a friend of mine lost 8 pounds in one week and I want to lose that much every week but I know that is just not healthy. One to 2 lbs. is the healthier way to do it and I am glad that's how I am doing it. I figure that I can probably lose more on the program if I didn't incorporate other foods and leave myself a little leeway. But then I wonder that if I did that what will happen when I go off the program. Would I be able to maintain the weight loss? UGH!

I think I am in a philosophical mood because I am not feeling well. When I get sick, I start thinking stupid things. Sue me. Anyhow, nothing much else to report this week since I have been busy with my other blog. Somehow it has gotten nuts and I have to catch up on that one before I write more here.

I am so glad Nutrisystem has soup on the menu. I am eating the Chicken Noodle soup which is exactly what I need right now. I don't know what I have. It isn't the flu but more like a mild cold. I have a stuffy head, achy body and just an overall feeling of malaise. Hopefully it will go away by next week.


  1. I'm sorry you're feeling yucky this week. It's still good that you lost weight, even if only a few ounces. You didn't gain!

  2. I hope that soup comforts you. It sounds like you need some comfort. I need to lose 20 - 30 lbs and feel like it's never going to come off. Losing weight is such a hard journey. I mean to lose one lb it means you have to burn 1000 more calories than you ate. The math is sickening

  3. Soup always makes me feel comforted. Find something you like to do; I love swimming and do it 3 times a week.
