Nutrisystem Day 2 - Weight Loss and Self Discipline
Today's Nutrisystem Tips:
* Remind yourself every day that your Nutrisystem meals are for weight loss, and not enjoyment.
* Also remind yourself that sticking with Nutrisystem will not only make you thinner, but will make you feel great about your character and self-discipline. Odd, but true.
And now, here are the details of my 2nd day on NS...
What I Weighed Today: 205.5 lbs. (8am)
I didn’t struggle as bad today but I still need something delicious to satisfy my mental cravings and I am not getting that from this food. It’s all bland and boring and plastic. I actually look forward to my veggies and fruits that go along with the meal more than the meal itself. This food consistently reminds me I’m on a diet and that sucks.
Adjusting to Nutrisystem
I’m trying to stay positive. I feel really focused on the prize as opposed to the food though. The food is for sustenance, a mindset that is completely new to me. I now know what it must be like for alcoholics to drink Near Beer. It’s the taste of what they love without the effect. When I eat this food I get the effect without the taste…which in turn negates some of the effect. I can tell already that sheer will and focus will be what gets me through this.
I must admit, starting this journey has me quivering with anticipation of new clothes and compliments. I am so ready to do this. What’s a little nasty food in comparison to the jealous stares of other women? That’s right, I said it!! We all know that women get more glee from a stink-eyed side glance of another woman than they do from the lustful gaze of a hundred men.

I also am continuing my valiant efforts to be active on a regular basis. I always feel good after I exercise but the problem is that I can’t recall that feeling when I get ready to put my tennis shoes on in the morning. The best thing I can liken it to is sex. I feel really good right after sex, and when I know I’m going to do it again, I only have to recall the last experience to get my body revved. Why isn’t exercise like that?
* NS Blueberry Muffin – 100 calories
MEH? Open the packet to find to flat little muffin tops / hockey pucks. They tasted passable but were extremely dry. I found that the best way to enjoy them was to take a bite then drown it in water or coffee before swallowing.
* NS Split Pea Soup – 180 calories
MEH. Remember Cup-O-Soup? Yeah, that’s what this is. Freeze dried soup for 1. I’ve never felt so lonely in my life. It wasn’t bad though. I would have eaten more if it had been offered. Flavorful and actually satisfying.
* NS Macaroni & Cheese with Beef – 250 calories
YUM! I hate to say it but this is one of my favorites. It is freeze-dried crap too, but tasty. If you liked Hamburger Helper when you were a kid you will love this. It was cheesy, and the little bits of beef actually had flavor. It also felt a little naughty because it was so cheesy (even if it was the fake powdery type cheese).
* NS Honey Mustard Pretzel Sticks – 140 calories
W.T.F.? This started out really good but after 3 sticks it began to taste like sawdust sprinkled with shavings from sweaty feet. I was really hungry and I still set the bag down and was going to toss it. I picked the bag up about 10 minutes later and finished it by drinking a lot of water to get it all down. I wanted/needed to feel full if not satiated. I hope to GOD I only ordered 1 of these little bags of despair.
