Made an Executive Decision

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.

I have decided that for the next 2 weeks up to New Year's I am not going to worry or stress about my diet. This does not mean I am going off of the Nutrisystem program. But I know that in the next 2 weeks I will be off on some days so in the interest of me not getting depressed or freaking out that I am not losing weight, I am taking a break.

Next week, I will be making our Christmas Eve dinner that will consist of a Turkey, my pork/mushroom stuffing, mashed potatoes, roasted acorn squash and dessert. After that, we might be going on a short trip so I will be eating out. Again, I am going to follow the Nutrisystem guidelines of portion size and also choosing the healthier food but I know that I don't want to freak out if I eat a cookie or don't exercise. Moderation is the key.

So don't expect an update next week and I can only hope I survive the holiday season without gaining an ounce and maybe losing a few!! I am hopeful but I won't promise myself that either. The New Year will bring new weight loss I hope!!!


  1. Bon tardi, Carolyn!

    I remember when I used NutriSystem to help lose 50 pounds. This was during the time I was at my peak weight. The program taught me about portion control. It's been about 6 years and am happy to state that I have never gained back any of that weight.

    Good luck to you! I'm so happy that the Christmas holidays are here. Mother will be here on Sunday. I'm so blessed. We're so blessed. Enjoy the weekend. I look forward to reading all about your holiday moments. Much love...

  2. That's a good attitude to have when it comes to eating. Portion size is a good way to look at food.
