    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.
    YAY!! that's awesome, when you see that scale move it is good motivation!! Good Luck Jen!!

              Yeah, but I'm HUNGRY!!!! I'm also a tad bit weirded out that ALL the food is pantry food. (Some foods really should be refrigerated.) I may go back to WW next month. I think I can suck it up and cook a little, knowing that I'll get fresher, healthier food in my diet. But I'm definitely glad I tried it.

              Jenny Craig is another option. I may make an appointment with them just to check it out. From what I hear, their food is at least frozen. And you go to a meeting each week to discuss your particular weight loss with a counselor who then gives you the food you need for the week. One week's worth of food at a time seems more managable.

                Jen, I have a lady I work with who had the same issue...the food was all astronaut food and didn't have to be refrigerated and it freaked her out! Plus, her familiy wouldn't let her microwave it while they were at the house because it smelled so bad (think they said dog food?!).

                She went back to Jenny Craig and loved it...guess she had done JC before and really really liked their food, so it's probably a nice transition.

                But I'm so glad you're trying new things and keep up the good work! Keep us updated!

                    You know, the food isn't bad at all. And it actually smells good (although I seem to make everything explode in my microwave and then I spend 10 minutes cleaning the damn thing everything I heat something up.) I think I'm just surprised at how "processed" everything is. I also had a big problem with my cholesterol last year and I managed it get it under control just with diet and exercise. I can't help but think I've just undone all my hard work.

                    Anyway, I have lost 3.5 pounds in 5 days. I'm going to stick with it for the month and then I'm going to look into Jenny Craig or maybe go back to WW.

                    Thanks for the support Ladies. I know the first couple of days are the worse (while your stomach shrinks.) Hopefully it'll get better from here.
