Here I am again, another week down and more weight to behind me. It seems that I just started this journey yesterday, but when I began this post, I realized that I am already on week 7, wow, 7 weeks already! In 7 weeks I have lost 26 pounds, and I have changed the way I eat and the way I live. My daily activities have changed, the way I look at food has changed and my outlook on life has changed, and when I look at all of the change I realize that change is good! I am loving all of this change. I am loving that after I get my patients taken care of in the morning, my family their breakfast, then my daughter and husband off to school, I am looking forward to the morning walks that I have with my boys, and Robert, he gets excited as well. He knows that after daddy leaves in the mornings, it is time to put his socks and shoes on and go for that walk to the park, and he also knows that these walks are helping his mommy get healthy! I also love that when I am preparing meals for the family, my kids remind me that I can not have that or ask if that is ok for me to have because of my diet, because they want mommy to get healthy. I love that they not only see that there is a change in me and that are liking the change, but they are following in my footsteps, by asking me if they eat this or that if it is a good choice, and if they do this will it help them get or stay healthy as well. Our shopping habits have changed too, at first I had issues with my husband buying junk and stocking our pantry and fridge with foods that were very tempting, but lately I have been seeing snacks and foods that are healthier choices for the entire family, so I am seeing not only a change in myself and my kids but in my husband as well. When I first went on the Nutrisystem plan I knew that I would be taking a life changing journey for myself so that I could be a better mother and wife for my family, but I never imagined that I would become a role model for them and promote a healthy change in my house. I am loving this change, and I am very grateful that my family is embracing this and making changes without being told to do so. So back to the weight loss for me, I am down another 4 pounds! I love seeing that scale just drop those numbers for me and I can not wait until I see that number that I am aiming for! I have quite a bit to go before I get there, but 4 pounds, well that is huge!! So here is to another week down and four pounds gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
