I enjoy how everything is labeled "breakfast", "lunch", "dinner", or "dessert". It really makes it easy to sort things out. At the same time, you can mix/match whichever combination you'd like. They're also color-coded by meals so that makes it so convenient when I'm running out the door in the morning and trying to grab a couple things for the day. The food itself tastes decent so far. Some of the items are a tad too sweet for my liking but I definitely have some favorites in what I've tried so far!
How am I doing? Well, it is portion-sized so compared to what I'm used to eating, the portions feel super small and that I'm not quite used to. So...I am cheating a little and adding in other foods during the meal to make the portions slightly bigger. Its not that I'm still hungry. However, I log them in so that I get a realistic picture. This is getting better near the end of the week. I have also noticed that with the system in place, I find myself resisting eating random foods a lot more. I try to force myself to stick with the system and eat recommended snacks/fruits/veggies instead of whatever I crave.
The only complaint I really have is regarding the online tracking system. When you first set up your profile, the folks at Nutrisystem put in your starting weight for you. So, unfortunately, although I gave them my weight to begin with and I had gained a bit over the holidays, that starting number was incorrect. They have been unable to fix it so far and as a result, I've "gained" 0.6lb when the reality is that I've actually lost 2.2lbs. The goal weight loss is also calculated assuming every one is medium framed (in my case, 10+lbs), which we all know isn't true. Everyone varies in size and shape (I will post a beginning picture of me in next week's post), but I can guarantee that you won't believe what weight I started with. I'm small framed so my recommended weight loss is 20+lbs. Unfortunately, their system is stubborn and refuses to allow any changes. Regardless, I'd say a 2.2lb loss so far is pretty good, right? Check in next week to follow my progress.
