Nutrisystem Has Started!

Hey Neighbors!

My Nutrisystem D has arrived.  It was so exciting to unpack the box and cooler.  I mean I received 30 days worth of food.  And they have some really great meals!  I LOVE that each food package you receive is color coded for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack.  It filled the top of my freezer and I have my own shelf in the pantry now.

This was great!  It is like a Philly cheesesteak melt.
I will tell you that being diabetic and having come off my medication completely by counting carbs, I am having to do a little swapping and substituting. I am really monitoring my glucose.  I have been doing things like having my dinner for lunch and the the lower carb lunch for dinner.  I also sometimes have a lower carb snack than they offer.  Not bad so far though.  I think it just might work!
This was sooooo good!

Check out the omelet!
I do have to share this one story though.  The first hamburger I tried was interesting.  First off, it is a pantry item.  That means, it has been dehydrated.  When you open the package and touch it, it looks and feels like cardboard.  BUT... don't stop there!  After you add the boiling water.... It is delicious!  I melted a piece of cheese on mine and ate it without bread.  Super!

These last two are a tad spicy!

Along with all this wonderful food I received a water bottle to keep track of water consumption.  This is extremely important.  then of course they have a wonderful support system through their website.  Not to mention Facebook.

Having said all this and shared the pictures of the food, I am truly looking forward to continuing the Nutrisytem D program and will have a weekly post so you will also know how I am doing!  I am still doing my treadmill and as it starts to cool off I will start walking in the neighborhood.  I will be back next week to update you.

All that looks so yummy! Also you mentioned the last two were a bit spicy. Tip: When you are craving something sweet like chocolate or even something snack-y, eat something spicy. I learned that on Dr. Oz. It satisfies those cravings!

Thanks for the post!
Good luck with your diet program :) I love spicy food, but it always makes me want something sweet to cool me down, afterwards. I started chewing gum right after eating spicy food to avoid wanting ice cream etc. I love, love, love Indian Food and Mexican food--best foods for dieting, because the flavor is so big! (best for me) :)

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this.
