9 lbs in 1 week!

I started the Nutrisystem diet (I want to be like Dan Marino) last Tuesday 10/02/2007 so every week on Tuesday I'm going to weigh myself and report the results. This week I lost a whopping 9 lbs! I'm still shocked and skeptical of our cheap little scale we have at home...but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

The NS diet has been extremely tough at first, but I'm slowly getting used to it. There are some "gotchas" that I didn't know when I signed up:
1) You have to compliment or add to the NS meals. So, when you pay over $300 for a month of food, you will also have to buy additional food, such as salad, other veggies, maybe wheat bread, etc.
2) Be prepared to feel very hungry at first. I was starving for the first few days, especially during work. Now I am still hungry around 4pm, but that was the case before NS.
3) Don't just get the pre-selected menu from the "Favorites" list. Maybe go onto the NS website to the forums and see what others like...and most importantly what they DON'T LIKE.

Well, I'm on my 2nd week and hopefully will see some good results in the weeks to come!

Way to go, Seth. I also need to get on the gut reduction bandwagon.
