It’s always been my nature to take care of other people better than I take care of myself. While I pride myself on selflessness, unfortunately it doesn’t leave much left for me at the end of the day. I can’t remember where I read it, but there’s a great quote somewhere that reminds me that I have to take care of myself first—just like if I were traveling by plane and there was a drop in cabin pressure. When the oxygen mask falls out from overhead, you have to put yours on first, before you attempt to help someone else with theirs.
I feel like, with Nutrisystem, I’m finally putting myself first. And for the first time, I’m able to quell the voices that have been stuck in my head of all the people who called me cruel things, and all the people who treated me like a second-class citizen because they were so judgemental of my obesity. I don’t mean to negate my weight loss to date, but I can’t even express to you in words how AMAZING it feels to free myself from that negativity a little more every day. YES!!! Being on Nutrisystem has given me the strength to get to this point.
In the past week, I’ve lost an additional 4.5 pounds, for a total weight loss of 28 pounds in 12 weeks. I’m really working it to get the maximum out of each day! And even better, I’m finally taking care of myself.
