Thank God for working in an air conditioned office. Hallelujah.
Yes, all the diet crap makes me crazy but I'm crazy because I sit there and listen. I've actually found myself contemplating ordering Nutrisystem but common sense so far has prevailed.
I wish you well. Thanks for wishing me well.

Yeah, those bother me. Quick fixes salve our desire for "lose weight NOW"...but they don't fix the problem(s) that made us fat and keep us fat.

That's a much slower process than any quick-weight loss scheme.

My complaints with NutriSystem (though it works like anything else by being restrictive and portion controlled) is that it's not fresh, quality food, but rather a lot of junk and preservatives. For a very short term to learn portion control, might be good. But it tastes horrible (except for folks with dead tastebuds, I guess), and it's not "real." It's frankenfoods. I mean, burgers you have to soak and rehydrate? Are ya kidding?

It's cheaper to buy frozen dinners and portioned cereal in the supermarket, and likely to be somewhat healthier if the frozen food is lower in sodium and higher in quality protein and veggies.

Still...it's not the fix.

I'm so glad to be home now and in a/c. Whoo.
