The Weight Loss Journey
August 12, No Comments. Harland B Salz Reply. I only hope I have the will power to succeed this time. Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? It serves well as a light and healthy snack after a tiring day, or you can have it even for breakfast.

I no longer use ANY credit cards whatsoever! I am done with them for life! I have had my identity stolen more than seventeen times since attending college! It was by someone who knew me, and accessed my records at the school office.
One of the culprits is on death row for murder, and his wife is dead. Fat chance of those two paying off what they owe me. I am hassled to death for payment, and another man is using my information, and his wife has my first name!
I cannot seem to stop him! It makes me so damn mad. But my credit with the utility companies, like phone, electric, and cable and other such companies is excellent.
I pay my rent on time, and have an excellent rental record!! But my credit history? I have a credit score of or something like that—it really sucks! I think credit cards are from Satan. At one time when I had an excellent job, I had more than seven credit cards, enough credit to charge up to half a million dollars—no balances on them. I would just use them, pay them off each month! I had great credit. Then I went to college—wow! After my identity was stolen—my credit has never recovered!
Even with a fraud alert—Fred Meyer still allowed some idiot to open an account using my information, and only when I could finally prove by demonstrating this person did not know my parents—or have their correct information—did they finally terminate the fraudulent account!
Thank God I now do banking at a small institution that knows my history—knows me by my first name, and has my accounts all marked. Anything funny happens, my accounts are frozen—and I am called immediately. It can be a hassle, but better than losing my bank accounts to strangers.
Good luck to all of you out there. I will only carry or use a Debit Card—and with the restriction that my bank will not pay any overages. NO money in the account—the card is useless! This IS the cheapest way to do banking, and no fees, no charges, no interest, and pain. Sign me, burned, but good in credit land. You will save a good amount of money.
Pus the food will taste better. I still think Nutrisystem is fairly priced, and is an excellent resource for people looking to lose weight quickly. You will get results when following their plan, which is why it can be a great option for a lot of people who have a significant amount of weight to lose.
For me, it has been a good way to reset after weight gain, and then I can go back to focusing on eating healthy and preparing meals on my own, sort of like you plan to do. In any case, hope your month went well, and best of luck with your weight loss journey. You have made some good points, and the pricing info is well-detailed.
Thanks Carla, happy to hear you found the information useful — if you decide to try Nutrisystem, I hope it goes well! Thanks for the pricing info. Has anyone else been able to do this?
Hi Cindy — Thanks for visiting, and happy to hear the pricing info helped! I think 5 to 10 pounds is totally doable, especially if you commit to the full 2 months! Remember, Nutrisystem does offer counselors to help keep you on track, and as long as you stick to the program, you should see a significant amount of weight loss during that time period!
That has definitely been a key to success for me over the years. In any case, best of luck — let us know how it goes! I was pretty pleased to find this web site and your cost breakdown is very detailed.
Thanks for all of the information — it makes my decision a lot easier. Hopefully can report back with some great results. Thanks for all of the information. Makes my decision a lot easier knowing exactly what things are going to cost! Need to loose about 59 pounds. Thank you for the sensible critique and cost info. Mostly fish and vegetables. Sometimes chicken or turkey but not all the time!
Is there a plan to start me on this regiment? Can you send some ideas and pricing plans? I tried turbo shakes with other companies and they gave me lots of gas…lol Thanks if this gets to you. Hi Jim — sorry, I missed this comment at the time you posted it. I would also recommend looking at BistroMD https: Diet-to-Go has some really good plans that sound like they could work for you. Both are going to be a bit more pricey than Nutrisystem, but sound like they could be a better fit.
My husband and I are considering NS. We also do not want to purchase ANY other food if possible. Hi Lynn — I replied to Ray with a couple of other options BistroMD and Diet-to-Go …I would recommend checking out those reviews if you think they may be something that would work for you and your husband.
There are definitely some ways to keep the costs down though. You will definitely want to incorporate fresh produce, though, as I think you would get tired of only eating their pre-made meals, and you will want to mix in a salad or something on most days just to get the health benefits from the fresh produce if nothing else. Hi Pete — the frozen food is an additional charge, but can be included in your 4-week order or as an ala carte item. Many are on a fixed income and I am one of them … an older woman, a widow, and on a very fixed income.
With the profit your company surely must realize, might you consider offering your program free to a few deserving people men and women who would benefit from it as well?
Just something you might consider … it just might be of benefit to your company in another way … good will! The Costco purchased gift cards can definitely be used and there is a space at checkout to put them in. You will just have to make sure you put the gift card in a few days before the processing date for additional deliveries. I just went through this whole process and received my order today.
Thanks for the very thorough cost information. Helped make my decision a lot easier. I agree, too, the frozen meals are definitely a nice bonus — especially the desserts! There are some costs with buying your own fruits or vegetables to consider too, but overall it seems fairly affordable. You want to keep the soup to to calories a serving. So skip the dollops of cream and butter. Want to enjoy chocolate between meals? Pick a square or two of dark over the milky version.
When Penn State researchers added pureed cauliflower and zucchini to mac and cheese, people seemed to like the dish just as much. But they ate to fewer calories. Those healthy vegetables added low-cal bulk to the tasty dish. A protein-rich breakfast may help you resist snack attacks throughout the day. The women ate a calorie breakfast that included eggs and a beef sausage patty.
The effect of the high-protein breakfast seemed to last into the evening, when the women munched less on fatty, sugary goods than the women who had cereal for breakfast.
For a great snack on the run, take a small handful of almonds, peanuts, walnuts, or pecans. Research shows that when people munch on nuts, they automatically eat less at later meals. Skip the apple juice and the applesauce and opt instead for a crunchy apple.
One reason is that raw fruit has more fiber.
