I'm SO hungry today. I must allow myself to eat more because the hunger is really getting to me. I just want to lose this weight so bad!

No gym today. It was grocery day.

I'm getting more photos up from my Saturday night hanging out. Check out my Flickr photos. Lisa took way too many for me to post them all here. :) I posted six photos this morning with many more to still do. Eventually they will all be posted in my Hanging Out set.

More NutriSystem food reviews:
Split Pea Soup lunch - This was part of my free week. 23g net carbs and only 12g protein. I liked it. It tasted like - well, split pea soup. If it weren't so carby I might consider ordering it. Blood sugar before: 74. Blood sugar 45 minutes after: 121. That's a rise of 47 points! Very very bad.

Mashed Potatoes with Meatloaf and Tomato Sauce dinner - Part of my free week, but not bad at 25g net carbs and 24g protein, but a whopping 280 calories. Yikes.

I'm hopelessly an Atkins girl. The potatoes are separate so I opened the package before warming it and tossed most of it in the trash, leaving just a couple bites so I could taste it (as you can see in the photo). The meatloaf was mushy. It just had no substance. The potatoes were...potatoes, but yellowish. Not thrilled with this entree.

I bought that Medifast and already started Atkins when I got it in. I opened the box and then went, "Oh my, why eat this 5x a day and a salad, when I can eat bacon and eggs."

I ended up taking the box up and sent it back today. Ebay that stuff and come back to us: the land of real food low-carbing!

The problem is I *gained* 17 pounds - while on Atkins. So far on NutriSystem I've lost 10 of that 17 pounds.

NS is NOT Medifast. I eat REAL food - not just bars, shakes, and puddings. I had scrambled eggs for breakfast, Fettuccini Alfredo for lunch, and will be having Mac and Cheese for dinner. Plus a Trail Mix bar for a snack, an Atkins shake for another snack, and a big salad (one of my loves). Some people don't like salad - I adore it.

Here's my Flickr set of the foods I've had so far.

Usually I get less carby meals, but I have a free week of food they gave me.
