New Day

Truth is...I'm fat! (push button for dramatic effect)

I took a picture of myself a few weeks ago:

I didn't like what I saw. Who would? I need to make a change. I did. Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem is for the lazy. In fact, Nutrisystem is an anagram for Emir Tuns Sty, which translated from Latin means "You need us tubby." That's actually a lie, Nutrisystem isn't an anagram. It's a box of food. Every 4 weeks they send you pre packaged meals. You eat them, in addition to fruits and vegetables, and you lose weight. That's the idea. I'm on week three. It's going well.

At the beginning, however, it wasn't good. It was a hungry hell. I went from consuming roughly 4600 calories a day to nibbling a bare 1500. My body was not happy. It was the Apocalypse. Where once there were plenty of sugar, fat, and salt, there was now fruits, vegetables, and fiber water. I went to bed early to escape the hunger and temptation to eat.

And, I'm doing this all for Jay Sean:

Let me explain....

Shhh. Megan! If we pretend we're dead maybe Nutrisystem will paw at us a few times and go away. I don't want to engage Nutrisystem in a blog comment conversation. I want them to leave alone...leave me to my weight loss. Eventually, if I lose enough I'll go to them and say, "put me in one of your ads! Look at what a fattie I used to be!"

I'll communicate with them on my terms! God, that sounds controlling.
