Week 1

So as per my previous post, I have just completed my first week of Nutrisystem. First a few things to note:

1. Writing down everything that I eat and drink and when is certainly helping. Especially on those days where I seem hungrier than I should be. Leaving too much time in between when I eat could be problematic.

2. Considering how busy I am on a daily basis, the pre-packaged meals have been a LIFESAVER! Just being able to grab a meal, heat and eat has been making this so easy. The only problem is having to decide what to eat since there are so many good choices!

3. Exercise, as always, is key for me. Got out for 4 1 hour walks with the kiddies (7k) and managed to get my legs back.

This week, the program talks about Internal vs. External hunger and how to recognize which one you are feeling.

So, now for the results. I lost 8 pounds this week. I am pretty pleased with that!

So on to week 2. I will be cutting it short this time around, as Friday my sister and I are going away to see NKOTB. We are so excited!
