Weekly Weigh In Weeks 35 & 31 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

New NS Logo

weeklyweighinIt’s been 35 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 31 weeks for Kaytlin.

I didn’t blog last week, mainly because I am frustrated. I keep fighting to get away from the 30 lbs. weight loss marker and it keeps sucking me back in.

To tell you the truth I am ultra frustrated this week as well.

Why?

Six weeks ago Kaytlin and I started a running program called Couch to 5k. It’s a 9 week program to get a couch potato like myself moving and able to run a 5k by the end of the 9 weeks. Last night we finished up week 6 with a 25 minute (solid) run (yeah us!).

So why am I frustrated… that sounds fabulous, right? Because over the past 6 weeks I have gained 4.6 lbs! Surprised smile 

I have not been eating poorly, I have been drinking my water and yet I am still gaining.

That is why I’m frustrated.

People keep telling me it’s muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat… you’ll start dropping weight quickly anytime soon, yadda yadda. So? Is it anytime soon yet? Actually, I feel like my ankles and feet are retaining water. I don’t know if it’s the heat or what. I know running is good for me, but come on man!

I just know I have to look past the scale to my non-scale victories.

  • I can now run 25 minutes straight and feel like I could have done more
  • I am getting more tone… bones are starting to show that have been hidden for years.
  • My clothes are getting too big.
  • I don’t get winded chasing my kids anymore.
  • People are starting to notice.
  • My hump (you know the fatty bump under the neck on your back?) has flattened out.

I’m so glad to started taking my measurements before starting the program. It helps to see some progress.

To date I’ve lost:

  • 1 inch in my chest wall
  • 3 inches in my waistline
  • 1.5 inches in my hips

So, let’s get to the business at hand… I know you are curious how we did…

This week I gained 2 lbs.

That puts me at  29.4 lbs in 35 weeks
