This is my 38th week on Nutrisystem.
I lost 2 pounds this week
I was recently asked why I haven't lost more weight....at first I didn't know what to think, because honestly, I've wondered the very same thing.
But then I realize that everyone loses weight differently. Some people have higher metabolisms, that makes it easier for them to lose the weight. Even though I may not act like it, I am 40...the older you get the more your metabolism slows down, making it harder to lose weight. Maybe that's the case here?
There's really nothing wrong with the way that I am losing weight...it's perfect for my body. I feel like the slower that I lose weight, the more I am learning about myself and how to eat correctly and I think that when it comes time to maintain the weight loss, it will be a lot easier, having lost it slowly.
Besides weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint. And as long as I keep losing weight, then I am doing my body good.
I mean, sure, who wouldn't want to drop the weight as quickly as snapping your fingers...why else would there be thousands of diet plans, pills, drinks and various other products that promise fast results...those plans don't work in the long run and you always gain the weight back...you want to know why you gain the weight back? Because you didn't learn how to eat properly and when you go off that diet, you go right back to eating the junky stuff you ate that made you fat in the first place. So, yes, I may not be losing the weight as quickly as others have...but I am losing weight and I am gaining knowledge about eating and living a healthy lifestyle and that's just perfectly fine with me.
