Nutrisystem Nation Blogger ~ Week 6

Nutrisystem Logo

Well, I am about a third of the way through my Nutrisystem journey.  There are days where I feel like, “Wow! Already?!” and other days where I feel like, “OMG.  This is going to be the longest process everrr.”  I am so grateful for this opportunity though.  If you’ve been following along with my weekly updates, you may remember I have a history with clinical depression.  That is something that is hard for me to tell people and here I am doing it in such a public forum.  I’ve had interesting responses from people about this topic – even medical professionals.  However, I know deep down it is nothing to be ashamed of.  It is just people’s words or looks that really don’t help how one may already be feeling.  The reason I am telling you about something that can be so personal is partly because maybe talking about it will help someone else realize it is “okay” to have this be something you have to deal with in your life.  The other reason I am telling you about this is because you will better understand why I had the week I had.

I knew something was just not right this week.  I do not know what it was.  You know with clinical depression, sometimes it is what it is and you can’t pinpoint the reason.  I just felt blah really.  There was a night this past week that I had chicken wing pizza for dinner and then ice cream later on.  The whole time thinking that it doesn’t taste as good as I had anticipated and then a little bit of guilt gut.  I most certainly did not beat myself up about it nor am I proud of it.  However, I am human…sometimes VERY human.


Me & My Dad, October 2012

Then another person I met through owning my website was extremely hurtful during this time.  That just made things worse for me mood wise.  I am not blaming this person for how I felt starting the week out.  I will just say that me being a self-admitted overly sensitive person did not help the situation, nor was it to her liking and I was told as much not very nicely either.  But it takes all kinds to make up this world and I am me…that’s all I can say I guess. Enough about that.

So, I am feeling a little better and been really re-evaluating who is in my life.  I feel like I have a good group of people I know I could talk to and who would be there for me.  I am not a poor me person – I just have off days.

Now, onto one big reason why you’re here… How did Jenn do this week??  Welllll, I am really happy to say that I lost 1 pound.  I am now down 7 pounds.  I just need to stay on “Nutrisystem Way” and not veer off onto “Whoa! Don’t Do It Boulevard”.  If you’ve been following along each week or even if this is your first time visiting my site and/or Nutrisystem posts, I just want to say thanks for reading.  :)

  1. Sounds so much like me! :) So easy to let those words and others get to us. We put so much of us out there that it’s easy to get hurt. Yet we can’t stop doing that either or we wouldn’t be who we are. It’s a tough circle. I’m not going to say, don’t let it bother you. 😉 It will happen and when it does, you get up and start again the next day. Just learn, right?! Keep going! You’re doing awesome!! :)

  5. Congrats on your weight loss! I found I had to remove some people from my life to get healthier and start to love myself – drastic and not easy, but I had to do it and feel so much better for it now.

    Thank you so much for sharing your journey! I have been thinking about trying nutrisystem for some time but, was curious how people did on it, how the food tasted, etc. I too struggle with depression and have for some time so, your blog really hits home for me. Keep up the great job!

    Do they send you all of your food for the month at once? I’m trying to figure out if I am going to need an extra freezer since my husband and I are both thinking about trying the program. Looking forward to seeing how you continue to do on the program!

    • Hi Jenny!

      Thank you so very much for your kind words. They mean more than you could know. Please feel free to email me anytime – via the contact form and that will reach me directly.

      Yes, you get a month’s supply all at once. I would suggest getting an extra freezer if you AND your husband join.

      Thank you for stopping by and I hope you return.
