I realize I’ve been spending a lot of time talking about Wii games, and haven’t talked very much about Nutrisystem. I suppose I should admit I’ve fallen off the wagon–I started a new job in New York City lately, and let’s just say it would be a crime against nature if I were to eat a harvest nut bar for lunch when I was surrounded by some of the best culinary delights in the world.
But as you can guess, the combination of my eating and my extended hours at work have not been great to my figure. In the last few months, I’ve gained some weight back. The good news is, I’ve kept up my exercise (both from walking as part of my commute and from continued use of the Wii for exercise), so I’m only about 5-7 pounds up. But still, that’s going the wrong way. It hasn’t helped that I’m down to the least tasty Nutrisystem dinners and snacks (I need to avoid these when I place my next order).
So, for the new year I’ve decided to make a resolution. I’ll still treat myself to nice restaurants for half the time, but the other half I’ll eat Nutrisystem Select (that’s the plan that comes with two weeks of the yummy frozen food and two weeks of the ranging-from-yummy-to-blech shelf-stable food, I’ll be sure to eat a good balance of veggies and fruit, and will counter any over-indulgence with exercise. I’ll post again when I order my new food. Wish me luck!
By the way, you may have noticed that Nutrisystem’s stock price almost doubled in the last month. Wish I could take credit with this blog 🙂 But it’s because of two things: one, people are starting to buy diet programs again in this economy (it’s counterintuitive, but when you do the math, it can be cheaper than eating out or even cooking yourself) and second, they’re going to roll out nationally to Wal-Mart and Walgreen’s stores around the country. It’s definitely catching on.
