Nutrisystem Week 9: 10% off! …I ain’t talkin’ about a sale. #NSNation

So French toast. Flippin’ amazing, right? Right. But you’re ready to overhaul your eating habits and you don’t want to give up the goods. Not a problem! Nutrisystem has an amazing French Toast that I am in LOVE with.

ERMAHGERD, y’all. This bad boy in a toaster, with a little drizzle of sugar free syrup? I die. It’s amazingly light, fluffy, and sweet! I always get super excited when a shipment of frozen food arrives because I so look forward to these!

Mixing up my workouts

I posted earlier this week about adding in some strength training and Pilates into my workout line up. It’s been anything but easy! I hurt in places I never knew could hurt! Pilates is no joke, man. It’s both encouraging to know that I’m getting through these workouts, but also a little discouraging because I struggle with it. But I suppose the stuff that hurts, burns, and makes you sweat is the stuff that works!

I think my goals for next week are to work out 5 days a week again, and for at least 3 of those workouts to be either Pilates or my Ripped in 30 DVD. It’s so difficult to find the time to get exercise in, but I definitely notice a difference in how I feel (and how much I weigh!) when I’m unable to fit it in. I know now that I will never FIND the time. I must MAKE the time!

I’m shrinking!

So here’s some pretty exciting news! I took my measurements on July 20, and I finally got around to measuring myself again! Want to know how many inches I lost? It’s kind of insane.

So y’all. That’s 17.5 inches GONE! That’s crazy talk. 

I also dug out my Nebraska shirt (Go Big Red!) because it’s football season again! Want to see what I used to look like, and what I look like now? Sure you do!

My clothes just fit so much better, and I am infinitely more comfortable in my skin. I distinctly remember posing for the photo on the left, thinking to myself, “Oh man, she’s totally going to take a full body shot,” and cringing inside. Now, I am known to routinely pose in front of my full length mirrors.

The Weigh In

I weighed in at 186 pounds even (a .8 pound loss for the week), making my loss 21.4 pounds! That’s a HUGE milestone, because that means I’ve officially lost over 10% of my starting body weight! Whaaat?! It might seem like a bummer of a week with a little loss, but I’ve been preparing myself for a slow down, and with all of these non-scale victories, I’m still super pumped up and ready to keep losing!

Andrew weighed in with a loss of 3 pounds this week, bringing his total loss to 23 pounds! YES! His clothes are fitting him in a completely new way, and he’s lookin’ pretty good!

    Look at you go! I have been working on weightloss too. So far I’m down 11 pounds in 5 weeks. I still have a ton more to go. Thank you for sharing your inspiring story! Are you taking classes or doing DVDs at home?

      Congrats on the 11 pounds! That’s amazing! So far, I’m doing everything at home — running around my subdivision, doing DVDs, or just YouTube workouts :). Keep up the great work!
