Here we go with another challenge at the Sisterhood. I am still on Nutrisystem and as much as I love it - 14 pounds gone so far - I am getting tired of just having Nutrisystem food. So I looked around and found that the South Beach diet is based on the Low Glycemic thing too so I will be switching to that after I finish off the NS food. (I have a couple of weeks worth left)

The South Beach is another low carb thing, but they do mostly good versus bad carbs so I hope I do okay with it. The first two weeks is almost no carbs at all so we shall see how my energy level handles that. I tried Atkins a while back and I was so tired all the time and I found out that it was because I wasn't getting any carbs. After the first two weeks, you can eat good carbs and that is what I am doing now with NS.

I did really well on the last challenge and although I gained 2 pounds at Christmas, I am back on track and going strong.

I am determined not to get Diabetes. It is such a horrible disease and has run wild throughout most of my family that I know I have to be careful in how I eat. I was glad that it looked like I was taking after Mom, but after 82 years, she was diagnosed with it too. That really sucks - she thought that she had dodged that bullet. So now I am more focused on getting healthy.

Okay, I have said it before, but I am saying it again. I LOVE Nutrisystem. I have never been on a diet where I can eat chocolate caramel nutty candy bars. It is actually a requirement that you have that dessert!!.
So, some of the meals were not the best tasting :( - I have found the ones I love and just order those. I love the meat patty because I can chop them up and make tacos! They have this cheesy potato thing for lunch that is yummy and yesterday I had a peach crepe with whipped cream for breakfast! The site has recipes that people have sent in to "tweek" the meals to make them tastier and I love it. Today I am having CranOrange French Toast. Did I say that I love this diet?

I am now down 10 pounds from the start of the diet and down six pounds from the start of the challenge at the Sisterhood. All this and I am still never hungry.....amazing.

If anyone reading this wants to try Nutrisystem, send me your email and I will have them send you an invitation with a $30.00 discount.
