Well hello week 29 of my Nutrisystem plan…you snuck up on me quickly! It seems like the time is just flying on this journey and the pounds keep melting off. This week I lost .8 lbs for a total loss of 41.6 lbs! If you ask me, that’s nothing to sneeze at in such a short amount of time. The plan is working for me and I’m loving it!
I have mentioned before that I live in a very rural area, and Nutrisystem is helping me enjoy that like never before! Last year around this time, my husband planned a camping trip for the kids and although I wanted to go, I stayed home and was a boring mom. The whole time they were out I thought about the fun they were having, and also thought about the fun I WOULDN’T be having because of my weight. I wouldn’t have been able to hike with my husband and kids, fishing would’ve been hot and miserable, and I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun as I should.
This year I found myself preparing early on, gathering TONS of camping gear so that when the camping trip came around everything would be ready and I would be able to join in on the fun. This past weekend we went out scouting for a great camping spot and we found just the perfect place. Lots of shade, access to fishing and hiking, and a safe place to set up tents. This upcoming weekend we will be going out for our first ever WHOLE FAMILY camping trip. I didn’t think me not being there would really matter to the kids because I’m not the ‘fun’ parent anyways, but the kids were head over heels with joy when they found out mom was actually coming to join in on the wilderness fun. The BEST part about camping this year is, my Nutrisystem foods are easy to pack and heat so I won’t have to go off plan one bit while we’re out and about away from home.
I can’t thank Nutrisystem enough for how they have changed my life. Life is so much more enjoyable now, and I can’t wait to see how great getting to my goal feels…only 18.4 lbs to go!
