This morning I got up, got ready for church, and sat down to eat my breakfast.

BREAKFAST: Cinnamon Raisin Bar. This was actually very good. It was sweet and would have tasted better if I'd heated it up. It had some kind of powdery stuff on it that I couldn't identify, but that didn't deter me from cramming it into my face as fast as possible.  I've mentioned that I'd gladly buy some of the Nutrisystem breakfast bars if they were sold in stores, but alas, they are only available through the program. I think, anyway.  I could probably order some of them online if I really wanted to search, but I don't think it's come to that yet.

At any rate, church services hadn't even begun before I was already hungry again.  I know it must sound like I spend my life in a constant state of hungriness, but I swear that's not true. There are times, I promise, when food isn't foremost in my mind.  That hasn't happened much this week, but it is possible.  We came home to eat lunch and I just broke.  I couldn't do it anymore.  What was left in our boxes was ham and bean soup, and ravioli in sauce.  I couldn't make myself eat them. I just couldn't do it.  All I could think of was being hungry and wishing I was eating something else.  I didn't even taste the soup, I just make some veggie bacon and started roasting brussels sprouts, because I'd reached my limit on what I was willing to do to follow this program. So again: Egg, Veggie Bacon, Brussel Sprouts, 100 calorie slice of bread and 60 calories worth of Smarties. After lunch, though, I knew I was going to be done. I realize this is basically be stopping a marathon with the finish line in sight, but I don't care. Forgive me. I'm weak.

I'll write more about this later. I'm going to go get a cheeseburger.

I have really appreciated reading your reviews of Nutrisystem. I have been tempted to try Jenny Craig before, but anything like that seems difficult when I have to feed three other people. I don't think I'm going to do Nutrisystem! It reminds me of one time when I thought I was going to do this 14-day miracle diet type thing, and it was these envelopes of dehydrated bean powder stuff that made watery gross soup.
The diet I'm trying now is my own idea sort of of just trying to eat really clean and no sugar or bread. I'm also drinking a ton of water.
