Can There Be Love After Cheating? (with Pizza and Dessert) #NSNation

This week was a roller coaster, once again proving that weight management is truly a journey not a destination. I found out that I can survive mistakes.  Pick myself up and get back on the track after a miserable cheat.  What else I noticed is, despite how delicious something tastes at the time, I still feel better (physically and emotionally) when I haven’t eaten something with a bazillion calories.  I like the “slightly empty” feeling versus the “I-just-ate-a-house” feeling.

We had an out-of-town visitor who joined us for a traditional pizza dinner on Halloween.  Yes, I set myself up for pizza AND candy *sigh*.  I planned to eat my Nutrisystem pizza, but when I saw the pizzeria pizza, my resolve melted away.  Then, even worse, I binged.  Yikes, I ate a ton (pun intended) of pizza.

Then I went to a blogger event where they served the most scrumptious food including these desserts *blush*.  Could I just have a bite of one?  Oh no, piggy me, I had to eat all, of all three.  Yikes!  What was I thinking – or rather not thinking?!

Shame on me!  But also pat-me-on-the-back, because I didn’t give up!  I moved on and went back to my Nutrisystem.  And honestly?  I feel better after eating the Nutrisystem than the other stuff.  Maybe not during *giggle*, but definitely after.  Not only emotionally ie proud of myself, but also physically.  I feel more energetic, more positive, more well, light on my feet.

After all that how was my weigh-in?  Luckily, I did not have to face the scale the day after either the pizza or the dessert fiascoes and had a day to recover.  Whew.  Here it is!  TWO POUNDS, yippeee!!!!

Have you cheated?  It’s not too late!  If you would like to join me on this journey, I would love to have company!!  Nutrisystem is offering lowest prices of the year – the website says it’s less than $3 / meal.  What are you waiting for?  Go here ( for more information about losing weight and getting healthier with Nutrisystem.
