First offical Nutrisystem update with associated cleavage report

*This is a Nutrisystem update brought to you by my shrinking back fat*

Now that the whole saga of how I joined Nutrisystem is out of the way let's get to the business of how it's going.  The exact plan I am on is from QVC and if you want to check it out, the link is here

I got a lot of comments and emails about cost so let me say I needed to do this and  planned for it by putting money aside.  I've saved up for lots of things before; shoes, purses, vacations and those two new toilets I just installed.  It was time to save (up for) me.   

I put whatever aside I could and planned to join when I had enough. About a month ago I was channel surfing and  QVC had a Nutrisystem Today's Special Value with a price tag that was spectacular. I'd really wanted to order through the Nutrisystem site because I think the benefits of doing so are better but I was a price weenie.

 I fretted and kvetched  (a little) before ordering because I wasn't there with the savings yet but really, why should I live a second more or unhappily ever after grousing about the state of my arm flappage? Realistically, I'm able to cover two (maybe three) months. But (and this is a big but)  if that's all I can do there are benefits to losing small amounts of weight.

According to WebMD, losing 5%-10% of your body weight can help you lower blood pressure, reduce LDL (the boo-hiss kind of) cholesterol, improve glucose tolerance, and overall lower your risk for cardiovascular disease.

And I'm sure WebMD meant to include,  losing any weight helps with that grunting primate-like affair  required to zip too small jeans over a too large backside, they just forgot.

My plan provides food during the week and I'm on my own for weekends which, I admit is a bit unnerving but there is lots of support on the main Nutrisystem website (and Facebook) in the form of hints, tips and general camaraderie.  

I've come up with a few  things that help me personally like saving food containers to use on weekends.  I eat meals in them to keep portions size in check.

So.  So far I've lost ten pounds. Count with me, one... two... three.... four... five..... six.... seven... eight.... nine....  TEN! Pounds! Plus I just checked and I've lost 8 inches too.

EIGHT! INCHES!

Diet? Cartoon

Kidding.

The eight inches was not boobage.  The girls are happy and all associated cleavage is intact.

What a giant milestone, I'm so proud of you, girl! I just this morning got myself back to my pre-vacation, pre-family visited for an extended weekend and derailed me weight.

You're fortunate too, that you didn't lose like your cartoon- that's always what happens to me first!

I think one of the most important things about dieting is that you find something that YOU can work with that works for YOU. It so doesn't matter if someone's uncle's cousin's neighbor tried it once and it didn't work. If you like your plan, you'll stick with it! :)

Here's to your next 10!

I had a friend that used nutri-system and it worked wonders for her! Yes, it is a but costly and we made fun of her taking the the fizzy potassium tablets (bet they have changed that.) But she was a changes person when she was done and lost over 76 lbs over a period of a year. Honestly if you have a fair amount to lose and it works for you it is worth the cost. Keep on it and let us know how you do!

Tracy,

I am so proud of you. It is hard to make those commitments. And even harder to spend that saved cash on a diet program instead of new purse and heels! Teasing
Good job. Keep it up....and can we see just how much arm flappage you lose? LOL

Yea, YOU, Tracy!!!!
