Hummus with Baby Carrots and Celery. Your email address will not be published. Specifically, I need a fast and easy way to learn how to eat properly. My job is very busy and high stress. I often skip meals and settle for convenience foods or fast foods at the end of the day to fill my hunger.

I rarely eat breakfast because I get up and go, go, go. Nutrisystem NS is a low GI plan where meals are ready made for you and shipped once a month.

While that sounds like a lot of money especially since I still have to add my own fresh foods, it isn't really. I was spending a lot more than that on the convenience of fast foods. I still grimaced when I paid the bill hoping I wasn't wasting my money. When the box came, I opened it and counted my meals immediately since I had read on the NS message boards that sometimes the counts are off.

I had 28 protein shakes, a shaker bottle, 28 breakfast entrees, 28 lunches, 28 dinners, and 28 snacks skillfully arranged inside a big box with three pull out levels. All of my meals are shelf stable and many use oxygen reducing packaging to keep items fresh.

Also included was a plan program book and meal planner. That doesn't even cover the tip for a restaurant meal.

The size of the "meals" is small compared to what I am use to. Portion control is one thing I am hoping to take away from the plan. There is no way that what is given per meal is going to fill me up, but it isn't suppose to! I need to eat more fresh foods. The perk of this is that when I am ravenous, I can go grab a ready to go meal, eat that, and then work on the other meal components. I am hoping this helps control that impulsive eating I have done in the past.

Some of the meal pictures on the label do not look that appetizing either. I had had enough. I was ready for the weight to come off. Then I lost even more. This photo really jolted me into the realization that I was really, truly doing it. Those sideways shots speak louder than words. I was morphing and shrinking before my eyes. I took these pictures this morning, and I just feel so many different emotions. Shock, pride, disbelief, and motivation to keep going.

This, my friends, is what I look like after losing It taught me to appreciate food instead of abuse it. I learned about portion sizing, healthy choices, and how important it is to be in control when it comes to food.

That post will be coming soon! This week, I lost. That means I lost a total of Andrew weighed in with a. Seven days worth of food! Want to lose weight and get healthy on Nutrisystem? You look healthy and seem to be on a mission to lose!
