Still well above 150. Sucks. I have got to get this weight off. I tried on the new Old Navy size 8 "just below waist" jeans I bought Monday and they do fit! They are probably stretched out from other people trying them on. The true test will be after I wash them.
Went grocery shopping and bought nonfat plain yogurt, nonfat cream cheese, nonfat sliced cheese and shredded, low-cal Salad Spritzers dressing, tomatoes, and nonfat Dannon yogurt. Also my usual staples - salad, low-fat cottage cheese, cucumbers, and celery. I looked for the Carb Smart ice cream and there was none! I didn't even see a tag on the shelf! Oh whoa is me if it's been discontinued! Argh! There was a "no sugar added" ice cream, but that doesn't come in Rocky Road!
I asked how the NutriSystem meal plan works, and here's the basic run down of what I get:
NutriSystem Breakfast Entree + 1 Fruit + 1 Dairy or 1 Protein
NutriSystem Lunch Entree + Salad + 1 Protein or 1 Dairy
1 Fruit + 1 Protein or 1 Dairy
NutriSystem Dinner Entree + 2 Vegetables + Salad with low-cal Dressing
NutriSystem Dessert + 1 Fat

I'll make tweaks (for example, I like to eat 6 times a day and need protein after my workout), but that's the basic program. I'll sub the fruits out for something else (carb, veggie, or protein). I also need to horde my dairies for nighttime so I can have my cottage cheese. Actually, going by the above example, I'd need to save out just two dairy servings for my cottage cheese.
Here's a link to a visual representation of the yellow book we get with our food.
And here's my NutriSystem profile. The start and current weights are approximate right now. I'll update it when I actually start the program.
