Day 1 - Nutrisystem

Okay. I was STARVING. But i'm sure going from 4,800 calories per day down to 1,200 is bound to make you feel that way.

I had an Iced Americano for my coffee (no more soy mochas) and filled it with non-fat milk (ick) and a splash of half & half (mm - especially with vodka & kahlua). Since i had my dairy fill for the morning, i ate a chocolate chip breakfast bar which wasn't bad.

then an apple.

For lunch i steamed some cauliflower and topped it with salt, pepper and goshimo and had a cup of Nutrisystems Black Bean soup. It looked like shit but i was surprised at the flavor. almost as much as i was surprised by the gas it gave me. i think i got 2nd degree burns down there...at the very least, i'm minus nose hairs today.

which was scary becuase i had to attend a fabulous showing of Les Miserables...but thank the Gas God above, all was well by then. I do have to say that during the first act, i had a lovely young lady sitting in front of me. she was short, petite and fit me well. AFTER the first act, I'm like "Hey! what the hell is that?" It was some young white boy with a big fat afro! i had to practically put my head on his shoulder the entire 2nd act. my neck hurts...

So on to day 2. I'm still excited and it's kinda fun picking out your food for the day. also, people complain that you still have to buy food, as if that's a con but i rather like adding fresh stuff to my freeze dried stuff so that's a pro to me. and another thing, paying $300 for the month is another really good motivator. No beer is worth losing that kinda money.

You'll do great! I will give you a free one on diets-they all work if you stay on them. When I diet, I go by one rule: If it tastes good, spit it out...
