This week was not a good week for dieting. In a matter of three days, my cousin’s grandfather (my great uncle) passed away, my best friend’s mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly, and my wheelchair broke down and left me stranded outside (luckily my neighbor saved me and brought me back in the house, and a tech fixed the chair the next morning, thankfully). I was hoping to have a 1-month recap post with photos for you . . . and that is just not happening today. (Hopefully next week.)
Between stress and the chaos of the week, I strayed from the Nutrisystem diet at least twice, didn’t meet water goals most days, and skipped snacks. Clearly not the poster-child this week, I didn’t expect to lose anything . . . and pretty much just hoped I hadn’t gained.
Despite the chaos and straying from the diet multiple times, I still lost weight. Even with the set backs, the program is still improving my overall diet, and it’s showing. And although I skipped snacks when I shouldn’t have, I also didn’t shove my face with junk food instead, which is my usual emotional response to chaos.
Well . . . it’s showing on the scale. I honestly can’t tell that I’ve lost weight from clothes or the mirror, but I’m trying to be patient with that. Slow and steady, right?
I’m a pound shy of my goal for the first month, but hopefully next week I’ll be celebrating that goal and earning my first Nutribear (more on that next week!)
When you’re stressed, do you tend to overeat or not eat at all?
