So it’s time. After six years of steadily gaining weight I have to do something about it. I can’t blame it on the baby anymore – especially since my weight gain started before our son was born. I’ve tried every diet in the book and it’s time to get serious. I started on the Nutrisystem Women’s Advanced Plan last week in hopes of losing 50 to 60 pounds.
I know, I know, it’s kind of drastic, but I think it’s what I need at this point. I’m really bad about measuring and portions and Nutrisystem takes care of that for me. More important, I’m learning about portion control and proper nutrition.
Here’s a typical day on the Nutrisystem plan, which allows me about 1200 calories a day:
- Nutrisystem Breakfast Entree (cereal, eggs, oatmeal or breakfast bar)
- Dairy or protein serving (low or nonfat yogurt, skim milk, fat free or low fat cheese, egg, fish meat – serving sizes provided in the back of the Nutrisystem journal) I usually have Light & Fit Yogurt or 8 ounces of skim milk.
- Nustrisystem Lunch Entree (Anything from soup, to pasta, to potatoes to a lunch bar)
- Salad serving
- Fat free dressing
- Dairy or protein serving (more…)
