Nutrisystem Week 3: Smooth Sailing

I want to do a shout out to the weight scale that my husband is using – the My Weigh XL-550 Talking Bathroom Scale. (Note for new readers, this is not a sponsored review. I simply appreciate a good product and like to share my opinions with the world!) So far it seems fairly accurate for a scale that handles large amounts of weight. I actually weigh in on two scales and use the average (they are always within 6 oz to 1 lb of each other). 

Nutrisystem Week One: Day One

Writing this at the end of Nutrisystem Day 1. From here on out, I will be posting about our Nutrisystem journey once a week on Fridays. Jeff and I both started with the Fast 5 this morning. By afternoon, it became evident that the Fast 5 was going to be dangerously low calorie levels for Jeff (with the daily intake being roughly 1000 calories). Just yesterday, he probably ate nearly 5000. He was starting to get light-headed and was beginning to feel sick. I contacted a Nutrisystem counselor, and they confirmed that he should start with the Fast 5, even with over 100 pounds to lose.
