To Nutrisystem, or not - that is the question!
Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Today I ordered the "new" Nutrisystem to try to "kick-start" my journey. I know it is not the end all be all to getting where I want to go, but I have a habit of abandoning all hope when things don't show immediate progress. I always live a tremendously busy lifestyle and most of my meals are processed or frozen or just plain easy to make. I love to cook - but HATE leftovers so making meals on Sunday for a week and refrigerating them has never worked for me because it "feels" like leftovers. I actually did check with my Doc prior to ordering and he recommended it for the initial learning stage of weight loss.
Of course here's the rub - I tried them before about 5-6 years ago and the food was deplorable. I mean when you can't stomach mashed potatoes there is something drastically wrong with the food. I have heard they have improved the line immensely and now you are able to have 1/3 fresh frozen delivered by Scwanns no less, so I am willing to give it a try.
I KNOW what portions I should be consuming so I really don't need to learn that, but I am categorically lazy when it comes to preparation due to my schedule and I just want it to be EASY and have someone (oh to have a personal chef) tell me what to eat. I am hoping this will be the push I need to drop the first 25-50 lbs on this journey.
Anyone have any experience and can offer thoughts, tips, or opinions?
