Got a question... Does anyone know the best Nutrisystem diets and diet pills to buy? Many thanks for any answer or 2. Second question.. I thought to start this thread because I wanted to hear from all of you how.

You think differently or do differently since you started the plan. Hopefully we can all learn something..

Taking control of what and how much goes into my mouth is only one thing that has been done. Weighing is but another avenue to measure ourselves against a goal set. Progress is a wonderful thing but getting there and the process IS everything. I'm sure to many others as well..

I just remember when I used to eat anything and as much of anything as I wanted. I never weighed myself. Never! gaining a pound here and a pound there was an unconscious process as much as what went into my mouth was also. I am realizing that changing into a fit person is not just about being at a goal weight. Its about becoming a different thinking person..

Here is but a small list of new things that I do in becoming that "fit" guy:.

1. weigh everyday.

2. measure once a week.

3. carry a water bottle with me everywhere I go.

4. eat something on plan every hour throughout the day.

5. read success stories of people on NS.

6. exercise 3-4 days a week.

7. read about new exercise routines and equipment.

8. Look at myself in the mirror.

9. Sit ups (with the ab rocket) and push ups (with the perfect push ups).

So lets hear some more of what you do differently and how you think differently since on the plan..

The answer is Yes, but you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm it as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you email the Nutrisystem guys because they can answer you better...

My biggest daily change is that I now eat to live instead of the opposite. This means that I plan out my meals the day before then give them no further thought. I don't wait to see what I feel like having or eat based on my mood. Now, I just eat to fuel the machine...

Thanks letsgomountaineers... you reminded me that breakfast was my problem too. I too began to eat breakfast and can't imagine not having one everyday..

One more change for me that I forgot to mention above:.

10. I use smaller sized plates and platters. My water cups got larger though!..

This thread opened my eyes on a few things that I have done different within the past month or so now that I have started NS...

1. like LGM had stated, I am eating breakfast everyday and I can tell my body is used to it, and even likes it, seeing as how my tummy grumbles within the first hour of being up..

2. I have started drinking a crap load of water which I rarely did before and I always feel like this is a great way to flush out those toxins from years of food abuse..

3. I'm actually weighing myself weekly and not feeling aprehensive to do so. I never did really weigh myself because I felt I'd be too embarrased to look down and see the numbers. Actually... it was hard to even see passed the gut....

4. The word "no" comes out more easily whenever someone asks me if I want a drink or some food at my friends' houses and even restaurants/bars..

5. For most of my life I have been pretty self conscious due to my weight but I can see myself wanting to go out more now and also feeling better about the way I look..

6. I have slowly started to work out which has given me a bit more stamina doing everyday tasks at work and home..

7. After work, I now don't think about what fast food joint I should stop by to grab some food..

8. When I look in the mirror, instead of thinking "where did I go wrong" I start thinking "You'll look so much better soon"..

I know I've only been doing this for a month now, but I swear I can see a big difference already. Today I put on buisness casual for only the second time since I started, and the pants looked baggy and my shirt fit perfectly. It's a nice feeling..

Breakfast is by far the biggest change, that and I am ALWAYS thinking of what I used to eat. Not that I want any of it, dont get me wrong. But every time I pass a vending maching I remember the snickers lol...

That's when you fart sitting down and the gas flows forward and it bubbles up around your marble sack..

If you're in a bathtub at the time, please refrain from biting at the bubbles...
