    Counting calories doesnt work for everyone.

      Ok, I just checked my order and it WAS shipped. In fact, it's in route to my house right now. I was planning to start on August 1st (beginning of the new month) but I'm so excited, I may start tomorrow.

        i used to manage a few nutrisystem stores in kansas. this will work. just stick to it. no cheating. you will lose the weight. im thinking about doing it again. i need to lose about 30 lbs. i might do weight watchers instead though so i can feed my family what im eating too.

          So, I got my shipment last night and officially started Nutrisystem today. All the food is pantry food. No refridgerator or freezer foods. So a lot of it is "add water and microwave." I weighed myself this morning and I need to lose 47 pounds. YIKES!!!

          I had scrammbled eggs for breakfast - it was actually pretty good. Then I had a banana for a morning snack and I plan to have a Mushroom Risotto for lunch and a pizza for dinner. They also gave me desserts so I can have a chocolate cookie later on. So far, so good. I'll let you know how it goes.

                Here are my tips for losing weight (I was a Nutritional Science Major is school)

                Keep your calorie intake to 1200 per day (Do not go below!)
                Excersise 30 - 45 minutes 6x per week (I would skip weights for now- sometimes they can add bulk if you are trying to slim down)
                Minimize processed carbs- the ones you do have make sure they are whole grain and before 4pm
                Protein it out at night
                Reduce Alcohol (when you do drink- keep it to low sugar drinks or a dry wine)
                Treat yourself 1x per week to an "eat" meal- this is kind of a cheat to let you have what you normally wouldn't (within reason) so you don't feel too deprived.

                Guaranteed you will lose 3-4 lbs per week the first couple weeks, then 2 lbs per week following. Also, becuase this way it's more of a lifestyle change as opposed to a "diet"- it will help you keep the weight off.

                Good Luck!!

                      Ok, so I'm on Day #2 of Nutrisystem. Last night was a little tough. Brendan went out with a friend and I was so wiped out from my week, I just stayed home. Sitting around, watching TV and playing on the forum makes my hungry. But I was good.

                      Anyway, I weighed myself this morning and I was down 2 pounds already. I know this is only water weight, but it's still motivating. So because I was so motivated, I did 30 minutes on my treadmill. Then I made the Nutrisystem pancakes for breakfast with a banana on the side. SOOOO GOOD!!!! I actually got 3 pancakes out of the mix. And they were very good. Brendan was so surprised at how good they looked, that I think he's thinking of joining too.
