It finally happened this week! I received the best compliment which is confirmation that I am losing although as is always typical, I have trouble seeing it myself when I look in the mirror. I do a lot of real life advertising for Nutrisystem. Anytime someone mentions something I am eating, my water bottle, or even makes a joke about needing to be on a diet, I jump right in to share my real life results and how pleased I have been.
For example, just the other night at Costco, my husband was buying his monthly four lbs of bacon (yes, he really eats 4 lbs of bacon in a month, and no matter how hard I try, I can't curb this in the least!) when an older overweight lady mentioned he should cut out some of his bacon consumption. Turns out she is on a different diet that includes weekly meetings, fees, and weighing/measuring everything you eat. Well, I took this opportunity to tell her all about how much easier Nutrisystem is: No weighing, measuring, and no weekly meetings to try and squeeze into my already too busy schedule!
Anyways, the point is while I advertise all the time just because I am so pleased, I haven't told those acquaintances I see on a regular basis. Why? Because I was waiting to see if they noticed! It finally happened. Last night, I ran to the Country Store to grab some local milk from the dairy, and the guy who always waits on my asked if I had lost weight! It caught me off guard because he is the first to mention it. However, once I confirmed, he said he had really been noticing how much thinner my upper body and face is, but was hesitant to ask (a little unsure why since losing weight is usually a good thing at my size). Yes! Go Team Nutrisystem! I not only have lost weight, but people really are noticing! And, she scores!
I didn't lose any pounds this week, but I seem to have hit a place in the last few weeks that I am losing at a slower, steadier pace. However, I am more excited than ever. I am definitely continuing with Nutrisystem because it works, and I no longer hope I lose weight. I KNOW I am losing weight, and the rest is as good as gone too!
I will try to have a new picture up for you next week. My husband works nights, so it is hard to actually see him long enough to get a picture, but I will try to make it happen this week!
