The Crazy Suburban Mom: Drumroll, please....

Drumroll, please....

Another half pound down... Drumroll....  NINETEEN POUNDS! 

And whoa, I'm SO close to another Nutribear!  I keep my current bear by the computer although I've had to move him from his prior home on a low shelf recently.


Because I'm not the only one who finds him irresistible.

 Ventura is a lover of all thing stuffy and Nutribear is just too tempting.  

And while I owe this big boy quite a lot, after all he has made certain that I walk four times a day at least - Rain or Shine, he can not have my bears!  Sorry, honey.

The longer I'm on Nutrisystem the more I appreciate how easy it is and how much sense it makes because face it, everything's a Honeymoon at first!  But a few months down the road ....  Well, you know what I mean.  

What seemed like a breeze the first week suddenly feels like you're slogging uphill through oatmeal in February and the next thing you know you're making your own rules... 

No breakfast today so I can eat more at lunch! A few extras because, hey! Gotta live! And what was once a cup serving - and you knew because at first you measured - is now a cup..ish.  

And as the serving sizes crept up so did the scale (and the view of you from the rear) until you did the inevitable; quit!

 Because, hey! My diet's not working anymore! (And you cry to the heavens... Why, oh why, does that always happen to me?)

I love that my food comes to me in neat serving sizes all packaged up for the month, with snacks. - Even though I'm big on salty snacks (much to the chagrin of my ankles at times) I've loved ice cream sandwiches and Creamsicles since before I had cellulite...  that's a really long time in case you don't know. -  There is no fooling with myself about how much and I'm always ready for my next meal.

Having a full pantry of just what you need is crucial for any diet plan; Nutrisystem just makes this so simple.

Here's the thing though, instead of my plan and the food getting 'old' and my feeling like I want to be done already... I feel more in the groove of healthy eating the longer I'm on.

This is a great example of a new habit: I've never been a big breakfast eater but I've made a semi-truce (which involves doing it without complaining) with the fact that it's good for me, (similar to my stance on exercise) and found I really love the Nutrisystem Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal (with a banana)...

I had that almost every day last month and miss it already.  In fact, I can imagine eating oatmeal in the morning becoming a lifelong 'thing' with me...     Eating oatmeal daily is a peachy thing to do for yourself, by the way, and that habit is something that will stay with me looooong after I'm getting their Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal delivered.

Check out Nutrisystem if you haven't before, they have some great specials going on and take a look through the website if you haven't, the forums are fab and their Facebook page is terrific you don't have to be a member to ask questions!
