Yesterday I got my big box of Nutrisystem food. It is supposed to be a 30 day supply of food, but I think I could put it all down in about a week! There are all these little snack bars and little cups that remind me of the Cup O' Noodles. I was excited to get my food and to be honest was expecting the serving size to be a little bigger.

Another thing I realized after reading the instruction booklet that came with the food is that I will have to supplement my meals with fruit, salads, dairy, carbs, etc. For example, this morning I had a few granules of low fat granola cereal (I think my cereal bowl actually laughed at me) and I provided milk, a piece of whole wheat toast, and a banana. Most of the food for breakfast was provided by me....heck, I could have had a piece of toast, a banana, and a glass of milk and been fine.

I committed, so I am sticking to it. I'm thinking of this experience as training myself to eat smaller portions more times a day. I've known for over 15 years that this is how I should be eating, and have only been successful for short periods of time. This will be one of those times, but hopefully I can stick with this philosophy longer this time.
