Hope your weekend is going well and that you’re beating the heat! I’m back from Chicago without too much damage to my Nutrisystem plan being done. I’m at the phase in the program where I’m spending alot of time thinking how I am going to make the changes in my lifestyle permanent. Read on for more…
This is the first time that I’ve been on a weight-loss plan where I’ve actually looked ahead to “what comes after” in an optimistic way. It seems like in the past, I’ve dieted, lost the weight, stopped the diet, regained the weight. Has that ever happened to you? It makes you never want to deal with it again, right?
Having a game plan every day and figuring out what I am going to be eating and how or what I will be doing for exercise for the day has enabled me to really re-program my thinking. And that’s something that will be important for me to be successful in the long term. Because now I can see myself adapting to this lifestyle change on a long-term basis; I feel pretty good that I can continue to make progress. That’s totally different than in previous weight loss attempts.
While in Chicago, we ate at a restaurant called Seasons 52, where nothing on the menu is more than 470 calories. So with some planning, you can go out to a nice restaurant and still make good, healthy choices…they even offer desserts in “tasting” sizes. The other thing I liked is that the portions were a reasonable size. I don’t need a side of beef for dinner! It’s such a great concept–why aren’t there more places like that?
This week on Nutrisystem (even with a trip out of town), I managed to stay on track and lose 1.3 lb., bringing my total weight loss to date to 93.6 lbs!
