Welcome week 42!! Nutrisystem is changing my life, one day and one ounce at a time. This past week I did have a slow loss week, 0.2 lbs, but I’m still grateful for every single ounce. As all women will understand, there’s a portion of the month where the scale is affected and doesn’t read accurately due to water retention. Weeks like this I turn to my measurements to see the loss…you can’t rely on just the scale! I measure 6 areas of my body (thigh, buttocks, waist, under bust, over bust, and bicep) and this week I was happy to see a total loss of 7 cm, almost 3 whole inches!
Seriously guys, weight loss is HARD! That’s why I share my slow/no loss weeks as they are. It’s not a picture perfect journey and anyone who says it is, is a liar. That’s why taking measurements is so important! Weeks where you don’t see the scale move, you’ll see your measurements change and it’s just the right kick in the pants to keep going. Sometimes I feel like the Little Engine That Could, but instead of ‘I think I can’, I repeat to myself ‘I KNOW I can!’. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ I’ll hit my goal, it’s a matter of ‘when’. Eventually I’ll get there and until then I’ll just keep chugging along and enjoying the benefits of a healthy lifestyle that I’m learning to live. One day, one ounce at a time, I’ll get there.
