Starting My Nutrisystem Journey...

     I received my Nutrisystem welcome package yesterday in the mail. It included my 18 meals and a 32oz sport bottle to help track my water in take. I will be receiving 10 frozen meals as well that will arrive at a later date. The package includes a Meal Planner, an On the go meal planner and a guide for eating out. Also there is a very handy guide in the back of the meal planner that has a grocery guide. It tells you how much of each thing you can have, when adding it to your Nutrisystem meal plan. Its basically a no fail way of going about things, you don't need to question if you you get a 1/3 cup of Peaches or 1 cup of Strawberries... it is exact by the food you want to add.

     Now To The Dirty Details
     Much like most of America these days .... I have a weight problem... yes its true. I don't choose the right foods to eat and I definitely know nothing about portion control. My starting weight is 215.6 lbs and I am looking to be 150lbs. That is a total weight loss of 75lbs, something that I am very confident at achieving with the help from my friends at Nutrisystem. They have set me up with everything that I need to succeed. Which for once I am not scared of dieting! I am very excited to start on my journey with Nutrisystem and with myself.

Day #1
     Today is my first day of starting the program and as a way to kick off my diet and the road to the new me... I hit up the local Farmer's Market for some fresh produce. Here in Maine it is Strawberry season, strawberries are a bit of a weakness for me! Luckily I get to have a healthy amount of them with my breakfast.

This Morning I Had:

One Nutrisystem Cinnamon Roll (Which was so yummy!)
8oz of Yogurt
and 1 and 1/4 cups of Whole Strawberries (Delish!)

For Lunch I had
Nutrisystem Mac and Cheese (Reminds me of Kraft mmm)
1 cup of Broccoli
A Good Sized Green Salad w/ 2 Tbsp's of Fat Free Dressing
4oz Chocolate Mouse Yogurt (Which so good, it curbed my sweet tooth!)

     I haven't had my snack yet today or my dinner but that gives you a good idea of what kinds of foods and how much you get to eat. I am not hungry at all and the Nutrisystem food tastes nothing that that other nasty diet food. Its so good! It reminds me of something you would get in a restaurant or your local supermarket.
