Like a lot of women my age, I struggle with my weight. My struggle is made that much worse because just a few short years ago (like 3), I couldn’t keep weight on. I felt like the guy in the Stephen King movie, Thinner. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with a medical condition that I started to gain weight. And BOY, did I put it on! And it seems to have grown attached to me. IT WONT LEAVE!
Well, to my delight, Nutrisystem has invited me to join their Bloggers Program. They will provide me many months of their convenient, portion controlled food–delivered right to my front door. In return, I will blog weekly about my progress. THIS IS MAJOR! I took a long look at the program before I decided to go with it. I realize that I MUST take on physical activity FIERCELY, if this weight loss plan is to succeed. That part will be tough, but I’m up for the challenge. And I’ll be calling on all my fit friends to allow me to join them in their daily routines.
Nutrisystem will give me a Meal Planner, On the Go Meal Planner, and a Dining Out Guide. I’ll also have to buy add-in groceries–fresh fruit and produce, and they show me how to do this too. And I’ll receive a water bottle to keep track of my daily intake. I think that I might be excited! One of the greatest things that this program provides is a community-an online community of fellow participants. You log your weight, exercise and measurements, but you also get encouragement, support and guidance from others in the program. They’ll always be someone around to celebrate successes with. There’s even a chat room! I like this.
So, last week they sent me the order form to look over and select choices for my breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and desserts. I must say that I was totally impressed with the choices. Here’s a sampling of what I chose-
- Breakfast–Cinnamon Bun, Banana Nut Muffin, Blueberry Pancakes
- Lunch- Three Cheese Pasta w/Chicken, Mexican Style Tortilla Soup, Double Chocolate Caramel Bar
- Dinner–Swedish Meatballs w/Pasta in Sauce, Cajun Style Chicken and Sausage w/Rice, Oriental Steak w/Green Peppers & Noodles
- Dessert–Buttered Popcorn, Strawberry Shortcake Bar, Golden Poundcake
As you can see, the offerings sound YUMMY! I have already received my fresh-frozen selections. I’m scheduled to get my ready-to-go foods tomorrow. On Wednesday, I shall start the program officially. And I plan to chronicle it all–the good, the bad, AND the ugly. Wish me luck!
