So far, I've lost 6 pounds in just under 3 weeks on Nutrisystem. Not too bad considering I haven't worked out at all.

BUT. . . the food is weird. It's ALL pantry food. NOTHING goes in the fridge. Strange!!!! For example, they give you chicken salad and turkey hotdogs that don't need to be refrigerated. What's wrong with that picturehuh.gif Anyway, as far as cost, it's not bad at all. I think it works out to just under $10 a day. But I don't see anyone being able to stay on it for a long period of time. All those preservatives can't be good for you.

So, I decided to finish the month of food they sent me and then go back to WW. I've always done well on WW. It just takes a little more time and effort to count everything out. Oh well.

jen - that is funny - hotdogs that don't go in fridge - WEIRD smile41.gif

it says they delivery anwhere in the US - this is of course the frozen but i live 40 min from a 'fresh' pick up and i am doing the frozen b/c i am busy and lazy HAHAH

Diet Food Home Delivery | Healthy Meals by Mail from Diet-to-Go

also the woman i spoke with has done both the fresh and frozen and she said that it is 90% the same except they don't freeze the salads and a couple other things otherwise it is the same meals?

--------------

BTW - if anyone does wind up calling, PM me 1st b/c there is a referral credit for free deliveries!

I did Jenny Craig. I would go pick up the meals every friday at a Jenny Craig center and buy a weeks worth. You can also get delivery and order online. Some of my food was frozen some of it you just kept in the pantry. Jen I also thought that keeping it in the pantry thing was weird. I found that the frozen food tasted so much better. I used to spend about $130 a week. It was actually pricey and that is why I stopped. I followed the thing religiously and I lost a lot of weight. The first week I lost 6 pounds and the weeks after that I kept losing 3 pounds per week. But I would exercise 5 days a week and I didn't cheat, and I didn't drink any alcohol. Also, after awhile I stopped eating the desserts and I the pounds would just fall off. Its hard doing that though.

 

The problem that I have with these things is that they are not realistic. What am I going to do eat frozen food for the rest of my life? Plus, even though you are losing weight, they really aren't healthy at all. They have so many preservatives, etc. It was a good start for me though b/c I learned to figure out what 1,200 a day looks like. And now I know what portions should be. (teeny, tiny and microscopic)

 

I also wanted to do the Zone diet delivery but here in NY it is like $50 a day or something crazy like that. I def could not afford that.

 

Good luck with the meals I hope you lose the weight and you like the meals. cheer2.gif

Ok - so the food came late yesterday afternoon - it was packed in a styrofoam cooler with dry ice and a non-perishable box on top. i have to say i was really surprised when i unpacked it - at how big the portions looked and how good the food looked!

 

i had the 'breakfast pizza' this AM - it was REALLY, REALLY good so off to a good start! smile123.gif

 

i will keep you posted on the rest!

Keep us posted on your progress. I'm also interested in what your menu was like. I checked out the website but it looks like you have to call and talk to them about your menu, is that right?

Jen,

i am very impressed so far! yesterday's meals very VERY GOOD!

Breakfast was the Pizza with scrambled eggs, turkey sausage and cheese.

Lunch was a HUGE turkey burger on whole wheat roll (i added lettuce and tomato), ketchup packet and side of mandarin oranges.

Dinner was Mac n' Cheese with broccoli and carrrots (i added a side salad with balsamic vinegar)

after yoga i had an apple.

i wasn't really hungry until last night because i went to Power Yoga and i am used to snacking and chomping out after dinner!

as for the menu - because of their rotaton - i am on the 'week 3' menu and about to place my order for next week, which will be 'week 4'.

you don't have to go over it unless you want to make changes or substitutions (i chose to call and go over it because there were a couple of meals i wasn't into).

I have dfone a Zone Delivery diet and it's pretty good. It was harder for me because I'm a pseudo-vegetarian (I DO eat seafood) so my choices were very limited. The desserts are great. You can eat out/drink occasionally but you jjust won't lose as much weight - and you'll waste money. So if you're going to do it - you need to be dedicated. It's easy to eat the dinner they send you and still be very hungry.

 

However it does work - but like any diet there's no guarantee you would keep the weight off once you stop. I do WW now and while it's harder it's a lot more flexible (you can account for your drinks/snacks as long as you eat the correct number of points per day).

 

I have pretty much done every diet in the world. I think WW and eDiets are probably the best fo losing weight and keeping it off.

 

Speaking of which - i am off to my WW meeting!

Ok Ladies, a friend of mine at work told me about a new program at Chefsdiet.com - came out this week (I think they're the same as the Zone diet.) They now have a program that delivers 14 days worth of frozen foods for $9.99 a day. Here's the catch, it's only breakfast, dinner and 2 snacks (or lunch, dinner and two snacks - for $10.99.) You still have to supply one meal on your own. AND . . . you have to commit for 3 months. My co-worker is getting her shipment on Thursday so I'll let you know what she says.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
