I started out this week thinking that I would have a easier week since I already had one down in the books. I was wrong. With Easter this past weekend and all of the candy that the kids got, along with the Easter feast and other foods that were big no nos for me, I found the temptations to be very hard for me. I have a weakness for chocolate or really anything sweet, and when the kids were going through their baskets and eggs, I had to leave the room. It was really hard, I mean REALLY hard. I did not think that it would be a issue, but I was wrong, I just wanted a bite or a nibble, but I resisted and overcame that temptation. Then came the foods that we made and served throughout the day. Mind you, we had a brunch that looked amazing, then the dinner which smelled and looked so yummy, and having to be the one that cooks it all makes the want even more so. Usually when I cook, I am tasting and sampling and I know that I should not and I refrained myself. Once the day was over and I started to put the foods away, I found myself wanting to snack, like I used to do while I would put away the leftovers, and I had to constantly stop myself, but once everything was up, I was proud of myself, I did not sample, snack or eat any of the sweets or foods that we had, and I stuck to my Nutrisystem plan, which I am very proud of!! So the big news, I weighed in today and I am down another 3 pounds!! I am so happy to have lost weight, I honestly was very worried since I had a good number last week. We had a lot going on this week and I found that trying to get exercise in was a challenge nearly everyday this week. We had a teething baby, who wanted my full attention and was having a hard time relaxing and staying asleep, plus my patients that I see and getting the kids stuff done, with my usual housework, I found myself feeling guilty that I did not get in all of the walking I had planned on, but regardless I lost weight and I will put in 100% this next week!

Good job avoiding the temptations. I am a huge snacker. I need to have a little munchie in the evening.
When on a diet or restriced diet we all have some sort of food that we find hard to resist. But with this program I think they haved abit of everything which makes it easier to do. Thanks
Your willpower is amazing! I am like you with the sweets and just love them. I must be one of the weakest people around because I know my brain talks me right into having a bite…or two. Very proud of you! It must be the greatest feeling after turning it down to see the payoff. Keep up the good work. I love hearing about this!
Well, here's to next week! It's a fresh start, you can do it!I know what you mean about all the candy. It's so tempting around here too just to chow down on chocolate!
I am glad it is working for you. I have thought about trying it as well. I have the same weakness you described.
That sounds really hard. I'm glad you were strong.
Good luck this coming week! hopefully there won't be as many temptations and you will have it easier.
Thanks again ladies, one thing that I found to be very useful is the online tools that they have available for those using the Nutrisystem program. I saw a post from a counselor that said if you are having the cravings or temptations to eat the dessert that you get for the day at that time, and that helped me a whole lot!!
