4 Weeks and 12 Lbs Later...
Nutrisystem made my bike quicker.
I don't know if anyone has used Nutrisystem before. I was concerned going in that I would be starving by noon and that I would lose muscle along with the fat but that wasn't the case. You're even allowed to eat out when you want.
I didn't make any real changes to my workout, in fact I am actually doing less cardio because my current work schedule doesn't allow me to fit in my whole workout. My knees still want me to lose about 5 more pounds to stop hurting altogether (old sports injuries, not old age) but that should be easy.
And best of all, I still have my cannons.
