I went on N/S back in the early 90s (like 12 years ago or whatever) and boy howdy, is it EVER BETTER than it was back then! Way easier!
I myself DID NOT like the classes and workbooks. I have a busy schedule and can not fit them in right now at this place in my life (work-family-friends-church-volunteer work). I would much rather be with friends socialising then sitting in front of another advise nurse rehashing the same old tired speeches and attending another boring class (my take on the matter). I also do not need the accountability of the scale weigh in since I have a doctor I go to and I want to lose weight by my next appt (I get 3 month check ups for PCOS...the meds I am on).
The ease of use is awesome and the set up. If I were married though, I would have a hard time sticking to it since I enjoy eating with somebody whatever I made. Just the way I am.
I have my stuff in my kitchen chubbards...breakfast area, snack area...etc. I just grab one and go from each area.
I tend to eat my din din during the day and lunch at night since I need more calories then. I also make sure I get my dinnners in that way.
I pour hot sauce on everything. I do find the food bland but oh well.
MUCH BETTER THAN LEAN CUISINE STUFF! I could and will never try that again! (just buying lean cuisines). This is DIFFERENT for me.
I say that since if there is anybody else out there in my situation, I want to cheer them on to try that. I wish I would have years ago again...but I guess now I am in the frame of mind I need to be to do this.
