Although I don’t think that my husband, Jeff shares my sentiment – I felt like I ate SO much this week! Here’s the dealio. I finished the Fast 5 on Thursday, and it did exactly what I anticipated – shed quite a bit of weight and shrunk my stomach. I mean – seriously shrunk my stomach, way smaller than I could have even imagined. The first day I ate the regular plan (I am doing the My Way Select Plan – Complete Women 1800) I was uncomfortably full.
So we have completed week one of Nutrisystem! I am not trying to scare anyone off from this amazing plan, but truthfully it was rough. Jeff was used to eating large volumes of food, and I was used to eating whatever I wanted. We swore off fast food several months ago, but I was preparing high carb and high fat meals at home, which obviously wasn’t doing us any favors.
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.
