Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could give you an answer..
It is definitely easier to plan and cook your own meals at home, but this is along term diet plan, you can't hide forever..
Eat your dinner before you go and feel smug within as you know you ate a healthier meal than those who are eating fatty pizza. (At least it works for me!) LOL.
Take good care of yourself and the weight will drop and you will walk faster and sleep better and feel better in so many ways!!!!!..
OMG Yes!!! I was supposed to go tto a friend's bday dinner tonight and it was postponed until tomorrow (and I can't make it tomorrow). I was estatic! I know I can't hide forever, but it's only been 1 week and a few days and I know i'm not ready yet! I was also supposed to be on travel for work for more than a week. Part of the trip was cancelled and I will only be gone for 2 days (with a co-worker who knows i'm on Nutrisystem and is on weight watchers herself). It will definitely make life easier for a while...
I'm only on week 2 and I have missed so many events I am starting to feel deprived NOT of food, but of social fun! All of my friends live their lives around food and wine! I've gone out a few times and it wasn't hard at all. I ate before I went and drank club soda and I was perfectly fine. I am going to a big party tonight and I plan on having a glass of wine - I'll see how that goes. Should I skip a fruit and count my wine as one fruit for the day? LOL I'm going to a party tomorrow night but planning on NOT having wine! Sunday there is a wine tasting and I am definitely canceling that one! I'm am trying to figure out how I am going to live a normal life around all these food and wine activities which is a big part of my social life! It's definitely more important to me to lose the weight, but this is my life so I need to figure out how to combine the two and maintain a certain weight! All my friends do it so I know there's a way!!! LOL..
Thanks guys, glad I'm not the only one!! Good luck to all of us this weekend!..
It is very hard but like aunt thelma said this is about long term.
I went to happy hour last night. I had a cotch on the rocks and that was it.
I did not borrow from the days food I simply enjoyed my expensive drink..
Part of this social thing is sharing with others that you are working on a diet plan. They should be loving and supportive of you..
Use your skills to select portions or make choices that are plan friendly..
You dont do this every day, that is where life takes a bad turn. Enjoy the special events, be moderate and see it as a way to celebrate you new convictions...
Yes, I'm another that sometimes feels that way. But, as time goes on, I'm working on putting less emphasis on the food that's offered at events, and trying to focus on the event, and it's working. I don't like living a fear-based life. I look often at my daughter who doesn't have issues with food, and she almost never mentions what food will be offered where, or worries about what she'll be eating next. The more I try to be like that, the better it's getting. I do, of course, plan for events, either by eating before I go, or taking NS-friendly food with me, but I no longer obsess about it. Give it some time!..
