Week 4 & 13 Of Our Nutrisystem Journey
I can’t believe it’s been 13 weeks already that I have been on this journey with the Nutrisystem Program. And wow it sure is a journey! I am starting to wonder if I am capable of losing any more weight. I know I shouldn’t think like this but it’s tough. And I am getting very discouraged but I won’t give up I promised myself, my family and my readers that nothing can stop me, and I will continue this journey until I reach my goal. I just can’t give up, my weight is dangerously high and I really have no other choice if I want to be around for my children and their children. I thought for sure this week I would have lost 1 or 2 pounds. We went to Sea World and I must have walked 5 miles that day. And it was so darn hot!! We also went out to dinner that night and I had a lean steak, salad and some fruit. And I felt confident that my meal was healthy. But now I am not totally sure and don’t know what I am doing wrong because I have gained 3 pounds back this week and I am now back up to 280lbs. I am trying very hard not to get depressed over this, but it’s difficult. I have this huge fear of gaining the weight I lost before and after I started Nutrisystem. The one thing that I still have a hard time with is drinking enough water because it makes me feel bloated. But I wouldn’t think that not drinking enough water would cause me to gain weight. Ok well time to suck it up, I just know I need to keep going and all will be ok. This weight will come off!! Thank you all so much for your support each week. I always look forward to reading your comments. ~ Angela
This week was better than last week, I didn’t cheat or eat more than what I was supposed to. My family and I recently went to Sea World, and let me tell you I was not winded or out of breath, to me that is an accomplishment. My food is still a great variety. Last night I had the whole wheat creaps in tomato sauce, it tasted really good. I think they should add more cheese. The coffee protein shake is really tasty, it tastes just like iced coffee without the extra sugar and calories, but it’s still just the right sweetness. Tonight I think I am going to have the Nutrisystem Cajun-style chicken and sausage, this meal puts out a lot of spice. And it’s kicking with hotness, no need for hot sauce.

I can’t wait for my next order to come in, I am so excited! I recently ate out and I think I handled it well I didn’t over do it. Since I have been eating healthy, salads are second nature to me. It’s like I get frustrated when I don’t have the ingredients to make a salad. Last week I weighed in at 262lbs. This week I gained 2 pounds. My wife and I have discussed this and we both think it may be the amount of sodium we consumed possibly causing us to retain water. Even with the weight gain this was a much better week, no distractions or worries to make me lose my focus. ~ Shaunn
