Day Three of Diet

Three days down. Sticking to diet. First week of NutriSystem diet is “free.” Called “fast5.” Carol Ann and I each ordered supposed to lose 5 pounds this week. NutriSystem calls it ”jumpstart.” Say needed to get us on “fast track” to weight loss goals. More like starvation diet. “fast5” week only half calories singed up for. Feel weak. Sit around all day waiting for next feeding. Lick plates clean. Waste nothing. Enemy NutriSystem strategy must be starving us during first week. Shrink stomachs so feel “full” after calories double. Smart. Must stop now. Too weak to go on.  Oh.  Is that a banana?
