Nutrisystem week 18 Update! #NSNation

Discalimer: I was provided with products in exchange for my honest opinions based on personal experiences. Your views and experiences may differ to mine. Thank you. 

Here we are, so many weeks in and it has been a really long few weeks past, to say the least - holiday food, party season, you name it, which all isn't helped at all by the fact that I have been on a plateau for so long it is hard to even remember. 

HOWEVER. That being said, the scales actually moved in the right direction this week and I am now at 265.4lbs, which is a huge cry from the 298lbs that I was when I started this journey. 

It is sometimes hard to stick to eating the food that you are given on Nutrisystem - you would think it would be super-easy grabbing something already there, prepared, but sometimes you really have to get organized to make it work. 

If I go out during the day, which I usually do, I really have to keep an eye on the clock and make sure I keep eating on a good schedule and not play catch up when I get home. I make sure I take snacks and lunches out with me that I can eat on the go (lunch bars or something I can microwave depending on my location) and shakes if I need those, instead of the snacks. 

I am trying hard to push water, which is getting harder and harder by the moment but I am trying to figure out which is best for me on this front - not overly sure quite why it is SO difficult to consume the water I need to stay hydrated and still can't quite figure out why I can't just go and get a glass of water instead of a cup of coffee. It is boggling my mind. The only way I seem to keep the water intake up, which has remained constant, is by buying water by the gallon and keeping it close by. 

I am not bored of Nutrisystem, even this far into it, which is a great sign for those of you who have tried any similar plans and not quite made it this far - I don't feel bored by my choices and I never feel deprived. 

I love the new crepes that are now available for breakfast and still my favorite remains to be the breakast sandwiches. I love the hamburgers and just about anything you can put in a bun, but I really love the portion sizes and now find it really hard to eat more than I need. I eat a lot of vegetables and so that was never an issue and I am never hungry. 

I have been a little sad about the season changing as I am not so active in the cold but I am trying to combat that with indoor exercise machines, then outside with walks to and from places that are a little harder to get to and require an extra push.

I was worried for a moment seeing the scale not do anything, but glad it went down a bit this week. Each week is a new week to try my best and every day is a new day to achieve the best I can for me. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past week -  I am truly thankful for the opportunity afforded to me by Nutrisystem, to really try and get my body back into some kind of shape. I will forever be grateful for that! 

Until next time, folks!
