Never in my life did i think I would go on something like NS, b/c it promotes eating foods filled with artificial ingredients. Fake sugar, fake fat, fake flavorings, yuck. Unfortunately I'm not one of those people who can eat real butter, bacon, and bagels with cream cheese every day and stay healthy. I have gained so much weight over the last 2 years--due to stress I believe. I ate to deal with mega stress! And now I am mega-sized, lol! Soooo....I am doing NS. I chose NS b/c I don't have time to cook so I like that they provide ready-made foods. I just add in my own fresh fruits, veggies, dairy, and some "good" carbs. I am pretty much over my whole "I can't eat anything artificial" bit! Actually the diet is very healthful and full of good stuff, not just the artificial stuff. I'm eating so many veggies it's insane! And whole grains, fresh fruit, low or nonfat dairy. I never ate this healthy before. I also eat small snacks every couple of hours instead of 3 meals. Not strictly what NS advises but it's the only way to keep my appetite under control. It's supposed to aid the metabolism too. I'm trying to drink my 6-8 oz glasses of water, but I'm flunking at that.
Well, it will be 2 weeks on Sunday. So far I have lost 8 lbs, at least as of yesterday. I haven't weighed myself today, I only do that at work where there's a digital scale. No work today so no weigh...I hate not knowing!I am really pleased with the results so far, I didn't expect it to come off this fast. i haven't really exercised yet--30 min. on the Gazelle twice so far--I am bad! I HATE exercise. Obviosuly I haven't been on the Health & Fitness boards before but I will be now. My awareness of my need for better health is growing. Maybe I'll actually start enjoying it? I'll keep y'all posted. And NO, I'm not telling you how much I weigh or how much I want to lose, b/c you all would die of shock!It's a lot!
