Well Well Well, We Meet Again (Nutrisystem!) #NSNation
As many of you know I had been doing the Nutrisystem challenge... Then it all went to heck.
I had lost a total of 15lbs on the program (YAY ME!) but have since gained back 7. Why? Too much going on at once in my personal life.. I’ll break it down for you:
- April – started looking for a house to buy, figured it would be easy. Boy was I wrong!
- May – The apartment we lived at decided to nearly double our rent because we chose not to sign a new lease. No rent control here! So we decided to move.
- June – We moved into our new temporary home. Stressful and exhausting. With two toddlers trying to “help”.
- July – We found a home to buy! But not before we went touring homes consistently twice a week and offered on 11 different homes, only to be outbid.
Also during this time I had some very bad news about someone close to me. I’ll spare those details, simply because this isn’t the time or place.
So what did I learn about myself? When I am stressed out I eat. Which I am SURE some of my readers do too. Because I have felt my life “get-flip-turned-upside-down” (sorry for putting that in your head lol) I began to control the one thing I could – what I ate. I decided that that was the area I could do whatever I wanted with. Mistake!!
I am glad that I didn’t gain back all of the weight I had lost, but I did notice my pants got tighter and clothes no longer fit right. So it’s back to my good friend Nutrisystem.
NEW Starting Weight: 177.8 – 8/7/2012
