Week 1 and 2: Nutrisystem Success Men’s Plan
1st weigh-in, 246.6 pounds.
Started off this process with a lot of optimism, looking to shed about 40 pounds. Surprisingly, the hardest part so far has not been the food or the lower caloric intake, the hardest part for me has been the amount of meals I’m supposed to consume every day. A large part of my issue with maintaining a lower weight has always been my lack of consistency in the meals department. Some days I eat breakfast, some days not, and occasionally I would eat nothing until late in the afternoon.
Getting back into more regular activity has also helped immensely. Add in the exercise and better eating habits and boom, more energy and more regularity, if you know what I mean. I can still have my coffee (which is good, because any diet or meal program that won’t let you have coffee is sadistic), and giving up soda and substituting water wasn’t as hard as I’d thought.
Most of the food is good, especially all of the Chef’s Table Dinner entrees, yum! I’ve liked all the soups and the red beans and rice are fantastic. The only items I’m not a fan of so far are the dehydrated, powdered breakfasts. I’ve also gotten introduced to some food items I’d never had before, like last week when the wife made some baked kale chips, which were surprisingly good. Looking way ahead to the time I’m under my pre-marriage weight and feeling better inside and out.
Week 1 down 2 pounds. Week 2 down 2.4 pounds!!
Time to keep it going and ramp up my exercise a bit, and I should probably start by dusting off the dumbbells sitting on the floor in the garage. No cheating and stay focused, that’s the key. Now I’m off to drink another glass of water and ponder the all important question…. Mexican Style Tortilla soup or Tuna Salad for lunch?
