End of week 12 with Nutrisystem #NSNation

Disclaimer: I was provided with Nutrisystem in exchange for my honest opinions and views based on my own experiences. Your experiences may differ from mine. Thank you! 

This is the end of week 12 on Nutrisystem and I have come so far in those 3 months. I started at 298lbs and am now down to 268lbs on the dot. That is a 30lb weight loss total for 3 months and I am very proud of myself for that.

I had had some bumps in the road and issues that prevented me from helping myself out with exercise and such, but you know what? That isn't going to stop me from continuing to do good. I am 100% now and so have been working out again this week and I feel the benefits of that along with the food.

If you had told me (this time, last year) that I would be sitting here even 1 pound lighter I probably would have laughed. I was in a bad place health-wise and really had no motivation to change because I didn't particularly care what anyone thought of me.

I am losing weight for me, now. Not for anyone else. I have the confidence to really shine and focus on myself for once. Before-hand I was busy thinking about everyone else and making sure they were all O.K, but now it is just the right time for me.

I have been on a plateau almost for the last few weeks, which is a little disheartening, but the fractions of lbs lost in those couple of weeks is better than putting anything on, so I am also happy with that! I don't ever want to get close to 300lbs again and so I am determined. I just have to wait it out and kick my butt into gear.

A wise woman at my doctors office once said to me that you just have to wait out the plateau and then when it starts to come off again you will be all the better for it. So - here's to waiting, working out and working on me!

Here is this weeks photo - you can see my happy little man decided to join in.

I was never a huge fan of this angle, but I adore it now that I am 30lbs lighter and accept the truths it speaks. I also realize that I no longer look 10 months pregnant, which has been a huge deal for me as I just couldn't shift that belly and my youngest is 3!

I still have 50lbs to go to reach my ideal target of 220lbs, which I would be happy with for my height and so here's to some hard work and another 3 months of Nutrisystem! 

Are you on Nutrisystem? I would love to hear from you! 

Keep on keeping on! We've got this!
