I have about 3 days of Nutrisystem foods left. Delayed my next order for a few months. I went below my goal, and will use 170 pounds as my "time to slow down" weight. That gives me a 5 pound buffer to play with. I did not give much thought as to what to pick up for next week. I will continue to have my 10 am yogurt, and other snacks between small meals.

I do have to stop soon. Noticing some real wacky things going on. Not sure if it's the heat, or just another year older. But hard work in this heat never hurt before. Heart palpitations, weak, tired, feel the need to stop in my tracks and take a break...or die tryin..

So far I'm thinking:.


I call it Bowl o' egg.

Spray a shot of pam into a small bowl crack a egg, nuke for 25 sec, then 8, then 5. And just slide it off onto one slice of multi grain bread. Then Cereal or something. 1/2 banana..

10am: Yogurt, 1/2 banana.


Regular days will be a 1/2 sandwich with Boars head deli meat on a multi grain bread. One piece of celery and 6 almonds..

If I find a day where there might be too much fat, maybe like a drive thru chicken sandwich, I will leave out the almonds kind of thing..

2pm Not sure yet.


Salad every night. I miss those nice little lamb chops. They have such a Tiny piece of meat on the end. I figure one...or even maybe two of those. Sweet potato or corn. Find some frozen, easy to cook TV type dinners.

7pm snack:.

Not sure yet.

I never really had a "weight problem" with food. My problem has been A lot of food. Finish EVERYTHING. Even if what I cooked was two or three people. Loved the BBQ! Big pieces of meat, all for me, and some trimmings for Nico..

But mostly alcohol. Beer, will put on on fast, wine does not help, vodka tonics will not help. But this was my daily routine. Eat large, get drunk.

I think I know what to stay away from mostly..

I want to keep my weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure in check. And what ever else age and time brings along..

Any other suggestions?..

Your question was: Stopping Nutrisystem?.

WOW, Good Luck. I just switched to the Flex Program because I was afraid to go it alone. This just gives me the weekends to have to worry about. Works for me and some day I might switch to maintenance but Good Luck to you.

Looks good to me. Just don't imbibe in too many of those cocktails (I only say that 'cause I'm good with one, but if I have two I start getting stupid and go all "snack-happy" LOL)...
