19 days and 8 pounds into Noom
No real surprises. I'm about halfway through the training and it is fairly predictable. The reason why it works is that it is not a diet. Really nothing to do with a diet if a diet is about restricting one thing or another. It is just about being sensible and mindful. Within those two parameters you can pretty much eat anything, do anything.
I'm exercising a bit more but not so much. If the days would cool down to the low 90's I'd get out more but September is going to be the hottest month of the summer and there are still people intent on giving me a virus inside so my choices are a little limited. But I'm riding my bike a bit more than I was. The biggest change is they have a great way of logging food and just that reporting what I eat is enough. The app gauges the quality and quantity and nudges me in the right direction. But the whole thing is about incremental changes that are permanent rather than wholesale changes that are dramatic but short lived.
The interesting thing is that a coach (everyone is assigned a coach and a group) can see all the stats I've entered in the app. So any discussion is based on that. 'Let's see if we can identify some of this food group you might like to have for lunch.' It does save a lot of time.
We'll see. I'm happy with having lost some weight but am not halfway to where I want to be and a third of the way to my 'recommended' weight. That last is not going to happen. Last time I lost weight down to what the experts thought I should be I looked so bad the woman at Nutrisystem suggested I needed to eat some more.
