Believe it or not, I really do enjoy my birthdays. Well, except the "9's" I don't really know why but I just don't like them. Oh well, it's not a "9" this year so movin' on.
We went to a wonderful French restaurant and ate some amazing food. Sis, took me out to brunch the next morning and that, too was yummy. Now I've started on Nutrisystem.
I haven't been able to win this battle of lb's and so I've decided I needed some help. In the 1st 3 days, I lost 3.6#'s. Yippee me! I won't be getting on a scale again 'til I work with my sis again next week. I only get on the scale at her gym that way I can maintain a fair amount of continuity. She's outa town right now so...no scale mounting for me.
I decided on Nutrisystem because you get all the meals delivered, including snacks, all I have to add is the veggies and fruits. I also don't feel like meetings. This 1st week has been interesting. It begins with the "turbo" week. You actually get to ingest less than you will after the 1st week. I make up the food with snacking on veggies. You do get to eat all the veggies you want.
I also chose this program because I have a habit of eating more than necessary when I do the cooking. I do love food but this way, other than veggies, all the meals provided are portioned. I have to admit here that when I see the finished meal in the bowl or plate it looks like a pittance of a meal. Ha! But I'm dealing and I'm not starving. I certainly don't expect the rapid weight loss to continue the way the 1st 3 days has, but somethings gotta go.
Typically, the 1st 10#'s of weight loss is due to water loss, but this program has you drinking soooooo much water, I can't imagine it's the case here.
I do have a lot of weight I'd like to drop and I did take a couple of pics the day I started this program. so, embarrassingly enough, here they are;
