I just completed week two on my Nutrisystem diet and I'm down 2.5 pounds. I feel a little slimmer and my mother said my waist looks smaller. I'm on track losing one to two pounds a week. It's nice to see the scale maintain a number in the 140's, but I'd like that number to be 145 not 149.
Even before starting this diet, I'd promised myself when I hit 145 pounds I'd buy a workout outfit from Lululemon in the Carlsbad Forum as a reward, or really, a bribe. I've noticed many of the women who workout with me at in Carlsbad wear the brand and many of my friend's swear it's the most comfortable and flattering workout wear. For $98 for workout pants, it better be.
If I reach my ultimate goal of losing 10 to 15 pounds I've been promised a dinner at Rei do Gado in downtown San Diego. It's the best Brazilian Steakhouse I've ever been to. That reward comes from my boyfriend who has doubts I can stay on this diet.
So, there are two bribes/rewards on the table. I also have a cruise booked the end of October and that is motivation to get in awesome shape. If I maintain the pound-a-week weight loss, I'll be at 145 by the time of the cruise and might just have a cute newly purchased workout outfit to wear on that cruise.
