Ok....I started today...

NO, not my period....isn't that what you think, when someone says, I started? Hahaha..

No, you wierdos....

I started Nutri-system today!


Everyone here at work this morning, pretty much thought I was stupid to start on a Friday, but my first shipment of food came last night, and I figured...why not?
What difference does it make if it's a Monday or a Friday?...I have to start sometime.

I am kind of excited about it. I hope to be down 20 lbs by May...I think I can do it...then Eva Longoria, watch out, with your size 2 self....lol.

It took me an hour to reorganize my pantry to find room for all of it, then to unpack it all.
Here is what my pantry looked like when I got done.


That is my food, for the next 35 days...Yum, freaking yum! I would eat glue though, if it helped me to lose wieght. Actually, you can add fresh salads and fruit, some dairy into the plan..you can still occasionally eat out as well. You just have to be very careful with your choices.

I don't know exactly how much I weigh at the moment. I don't have a scale. But last time I checked, I was 138 lbs and I am 5 ft 2....Losing 20 lbs would put me back down to 118.....which was what I weighed two summers ago.

If it goes well...I will keep you posted. If not, I will not mention it again.

Now, lets all sing "High hopes....Dixie's got High Hopes"...

Later.....

You can do this Dixie! I need to do the same but am short on cash at the moment. I have been trying to do it on my own and am down 6lbs but it is soooo hard...I have 35lbs to go!
Keep us posted on your progress...I know you have it in you to make it happen! As they say in Weight Watchers...nothing tastes as good as thin feels!

Good luck Dixie!! back in high school my friend was on Nutri-system and the food looked like cat food..it even came in little tab-top tins..yeck!! The food now looks WAY better.
Maybe if I wasn't such a greedy cow, I would try some....I sadly would eat in all in a couple of weeks.

losing 20 pounds in 2 & 1/2 months is totally doable. I did it a few years ago before I got pregnant...and actually I attribute the fact that I got pregnant in the first place to the fact that I lost that weight, because we had tried and tried to no success and then i lost 25 pounds between january and march and voila...pregnant in may!!!

good luck!!!

Italianissima..yeah, it is going to be hard, because I love to eat...but, so far so good. I don't know if I will be able to reorder after this round or not...I will see how well it goes, but I am sick of the food already...I will tell you that. It is not as good as they make it look.


Linka...you are not too far off..some of the food still comes in pop top cans...it is tolerable...you just have to not focus on what you are eating, and eat it. Although, the cheese tortellini was horrid...it smelled like vomit..seriously, I had to force it down...I think the same plan can be done, but use like Lean Cuisine or Weight Watcher entree's...add in the dairy and salads just like with the Nutri system...

Janet...we are going to Blogher....I doubt that I will almost blow away....even If I do reach my goal..you are funny, girl!

Flat, honey...you are perfect...you don't need to be motivated to lose an ounce...if I looked half as good as you...I wouldn't be subjecting myself to this torture.

Lil foot..yeah, I think so....I mean, calorie wise, this Nutri system limits you to around 1200 or less calories a day...I think I can lose at least 2 or 3 lbs a week...I already don't feel as bloated....I need to buy a scale though....so I can monitor it, but 2 months, 20 lbs? Yeah, I think it is doable too.


Christine..yeah, it is tough. Good luck to you too..I will keep posting my progress on my blog, so check back with me.

Honeybell..thanks. Hopefully, I can be another poster child for Nutri system..ha!

Maureen...so far, the food is so..so...you can tell it is diet food, that is for sure..I don't think it is nearly as good as they make it out to be. Bottom line...if it makes me lose weight, it is worth it...dieting never taste good, regardless.

Sandy..you are too funny! I wished...
