Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could give you an answer..
Welcome back Dan. I can't be as eloquent as Marty_Must_Go, but want to encourage you to be on the BB, read posts, look at the food tips section to doctor up meals to help with cravings, for e.g. you can turn the southwest chicken wrap into a taco bell type mexican pizza/tostada. All the best and we want you to get to that bike and post pictures with you posing next to it..
Welcome Dan, Glad you made it back. I think all of us would say food is a harder addiction than alcohol and cigarettes. But come on man, getting a motorcycle is a perk that you could actually do now, but your health and life are at risk. I appreciate the incentive, but mentally you need to realize that your health is the biggest factor. Being there for your wife for a long happy life is more important than a great motorcycle. Change your thought process and you will change the result! ok, I am off the soapbox!..
Welcome back Dan. An addiction is an addiction. The first step is coming to grips that you have one. Food addiction to me, like you, is the hardest of all to break. I've been at this for 9 months now and still get cravings for the wrong things. I've been on a plateau for the last month and it's harder now than it has ever been to stay the course.
The next thing you know, you're back to your old bad habits. I think the only mistake you're making is limiting yourself to a Shadow 750. A man or your size need at least a 1300 of some sort. I like the idea of rewarding yourself, but I think you should get to goal before you do so or you may never see 200. Just my .02.
Welcome back, Dan! Looking forward to seeing you around here a LOT with a big succuss story coming! We all know how easy it is to fall, but the real men get back up and DO IT!.
I am trying to turn to my bike instead of food. Last night I was hungry as all heck. But instead of grabbing food I jumped on my bike and rode till my legs couldn't take it any more. Did I say legs? I meant butt...
The biking is great and it gets you outside. Keep that up..
Also important to post daily. I see the chatterboxes doing better than the ones who are shy...
Meet Rob; the new Sean..
Glad you're back Dan, now off with it!..
Welcome back Dan. I hope you give yourself your best effort in this!.
As my granddad used to say, "you've got it to do, son"..
Sort of focuses things in perspective doesn't it..
I'm pretty much with Marty-must-go on this one. Although I'm all for incentives and personal goals, what you really should consider is changing your lifemeaning you will CHANGE what you know (knowledge) AND change your habits and behaviors..
So, all B.S. aside my friend.....when does.
Start? Those CHANGES in what you know and DO?.
You've got it to do, son.
Is this really about a motorcycle or a weight target? Because if it is, I'll just share that I think you may be missing a pretty major point..
We are supposed to CHANGE what we.
Because of what we learn. That process (and it IS a process) is what converts us to healthier people who are in control of food..
Otherwise Nutrisystem boxes of food (which.
Don't contain any magic pixie dust.
) are just diet aids......
Step back a second and answer this question: with or without that motorcycle, do you want to spend another 50+ years bouncing back and forth between unhealthy weights and "diets" because you still don't get it? Or, would you rather INCORPORATE learning into your life and.
Make actual changes to your habits.
You've got it to do, son.
"....generally as I get older I realize that old farmer who was my granddad was the wisest man on the planet.
