Week 12- Now The Real Journey Begins-Nutrisystem #NSNation #ad
It is hard to believe that it’s been 3 months ago since I started my journey with Nutrisystem and the #NSNation because it has indeed been a journey but the one thing I have learned that it’s not about losing 26 pounds, but rediscovering me in the process.
What started as a quest to lose 20 pounds became less about losing weight and more about rediscovering me. It doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago when I opened that first box and I looked at the portion sizes and was sure that I would starve but it didn’t take long for me to realize that if I just stayed the course of the program that I truly did have everything I needed right there. I went back to walking not just occasionally but daily and started feeling good again not because the weight was falling off but because I was learning that what started as doing this in the hopes that I would finally be good enough in the eyes of others didn’t matter so much anymore as being comfortable with the person who I am was. It started with a wish that maybe if I lost some weight, maybe “he” would notice but what happened along the way was no, he never did but I started to take notice and in the end, isn’t that what really matters.
The journey showed me that while not everyone is destine to walk hand in hand into the sunset with someone else that doesn’t mean that that same sunset isn’t still out there waiting for you and who knows what you’ll see along the way. The program definitely has given me the tools to face the health challenges that are ahead of me but being able to go into the surgery 26 pounds down, and maybe more, could mean all the difference in my recovery. In the end it wasn’t about the amount of weight I lost in the end but getting back to a healthier, happier me and isn’t that the ultimate victory? And when I look in the mirror, now I look for what I see, instead what I am hoping he will see, and that’s never a bad thing. There’s a lot of world and me left to discover and explore, but it’s a journey I not only want to take, I’m excited to see what awaits me just around the bend.
