Welcome to another week on the Nutrisystem program! We just returned from a trip to Disney World, and boy did we EAT. I'd love to sit here and tell you that I was a perfect angel on our trip to WDW. It would be fantastic to say that I ate incredibly healthy, and hardly indulged. But, the fact is, we never travel and Disney World is my favorite place to go! So, I DID indulge. Was it worth it? The short answer would be, YES. I enjoyed every moment of eating at Disney - the awesome restaurants, the Food & Wine Festival, and the Disney Dining Plan certainly racked up the calories. I thought for sure that all of that walking would counteract the food indulging, but ....
What did the scale say when I got back from our trip? +12 POUNDS! I gained 12 lbs from indulging on our trip. I have to admit, I was pretty shocked. But this is what I've learned from indulging on Nutrisystem.
1) It takes about as long to come off as the days you have indulged.
I have noticed this frequently. There were a couple meals that I took off for special events in the past, and it only ever set me back about a day. Our trip was 8 days, but I had indulged for a good few days before that, so that attributed to the weight gain.
After one week back on plan, I lost 9 of those 12 lbs!!
It was a relief to have lost the majority of the weight! I'm hoping that this weeks weigh in will take off the rest, and that I can then move forward with my weight loss.
2) Food doesn't taste as exciting as you remember it tasting.
I can't even tell you how psyched I was to go to Disney and indulge. We never go on vacation, and I was excited to live it up to the fullest in every aspect. But, the food wasn't as exciting as I built it up to be. I found myself ready to be done eating before the trip was over.
3) I actually looked forward to getting back to my Nutrisystem food!
This is something I never thought would happen, but I actually was excited to get back to my NS food! After more than a year of eating minimal vegetables, I missed my greens. I missed my NS chocolate cupcakes with Cool Whip and my lunch melts. It was such a bizarre feeling to come home from a trip feeling motivated. I thought for sure I would be reluctant to get back to it, but I was (and still am) gung-ho about Nutrisystem!!
