This was a pretty “Meh” week for both of us in the weight loss department. I held steady at last week’s weight – nothing lost, nothing gained – and Jai had a gain of 1.2 pounds. This is our busiest work season and it definitely affects how much we exercise; while I took a few walks last week, I didn’t get in as much activity as I would have liked to because of my long office hours. Since Jai and I are both getting nearer to our goal weights, our weight is at that point where a plateau can be easy without that extra push of exercise. For Jai, I’m going to make sure he schedules in some time each day to go jogging; for me, I’m coming up on a week of very intense deadlines, so my plan is just to hang on tight and get through it! It’s not every week that I have 50 articles due – thank goodness! – so I can breathe a big sigh of relief once this is over and get back to a more normal schedule. Although this week wasn’t our best on Nutrisystem, it’s the best I’ve ever done diet-wise during this time of year, which is saying a lot! Even when things are crazy, we still have the stability of the Nutrisystem meals to keep things from getting out of control. I haven’t been in the 130s weight range since 2009, so it’s a big milestone to be where I am and be able to at least maintain my progress when things get hectic!
