Week 6 My Diabetic Meal Plan Nutrisystem D
Blogger Nation Program Weigh In & Chat
I can't believe that I'm on week 6 already for my mela
plan with Nutrisystem! The time is really going quickly.
I started at 196-197 pounds and I'm now at 188.4 pounds
so that is still good since I'm not gaining weight! It
seems I'm at a frozen spot as I can't seem to get it down
to the 187 mark but I'm still working on it. I do believe
that age has a lot to do with losing since I'm 54 and not
as active as I should be I guess that does play a major
part in my results.
I'm still walking but only for about 30 minutes a day, I
know I need to increas that I just have'nt done it.
I've been doing good with avoiding the usual Christmas
culprits this year of baked goodies all around. My sons
even brought a dozen hot Krispy Kreme doughnuts in a
couple of days ago and I never touched them! I was so
proud of myself for that since normally I would have eaten
at least one of them! I even sat at the same table with
them while they ate them like ravenous pigs and had my
wonderful Nurisystem D Carrot Cake with cream cheese
frosting. I was completely satisfied because I love this
carrot cake! Still I shocked my kids by not trying to take
even a bite of their doughnuts!
Yesterday my son asked me an interesting question. He
asked What was I going to do once I'm off the Nutrisystem
Nation Blogging Program? Hmm, I hadn't even thought about
that but I have been thinking about it ever since. The
best scenario I can come up with in order to keep feeling
better like I am now with so much less feet pain is this:
1.Keep drinking 6-8 glasses of water every day
2. Keep walking every single day
3.Make me a bunch of whole wheat sugar free treats and
snacks in proper portions and freeze them all so I can
pull out one small treat per day like I have now.
4.I will only eat whole wheat carbs when I do eat them and
the amounts will be 1/8th of what I was eating before
since I know now that is the "culprit" that causes the
diabetic neuropathy pain to be worse.
5.I will abide by portion control on each & every plate
with healthy choices being on there.
6.I will only grill or bake my lean meats and in the
correct recommended serving sizes.
7.I will try to continue to eat 7-10 fresh fruits and
vegetables every day as I know they are vital to
8.I won't go back to eating what my kids scarf down which
deep fried everything I won't go back to deep fried foods
I miss them but it's just not worth it to me to suffer
with the pain I had before. I will let some potatoes back
in but only in very small amounts and if cooked without
all of the butter and fat in them.
9.I'll stick with my diet pepsi's as my drink of choice 2
times a day because it has zero calories so I can never go
back to a regular pepsi with 39 grams of sugar per 12
ounce can. I'll still try to make my kids do this switch
but I'm telling you-that's an impossible dream.
10.I will use smaller plates at each meal just like I am
doing now with Nutrisystem. It really does make you feel
like you have more food than you do.
Well now, I think that is a pretty good meal plan to use
to keep my weight going down a little bit at a time. As
long as it's not going up I'll be happy. The main most
important thing to me though is to not mess up so much
that I let that horrible foot pain come back by eating
wrong. That's what this meal plan experiment has taught me
most of all and I would say it's a valuable lesson
learned. I'm so grateful that Nutrisystem D has allowed me
to test this meal plan because otherwise I would have
never seen that it really is what you eat that makes you
feel bad when you're a diabetic especially.
Wow, I just noticed this is reading like I'm at the end of
my plan but I'm not. I won't be finished I think until
March 31st,2011 so I still have time to lose some more
weight hopefully and to keep feeling better! It's so nice
to not have your feet be so swollen that you can hardly
walk so I would recommend their meal plans for anyone
who is looking to lose weight or just wants to start eating
healthier. By the way, the chocolate chip granola bar of
their's I had for breakfast was great!
