However, I have made the first step by joining the Nutrisystem Nation! I’ve known a few folks who have lost a great deal of weight on Nutrisystem years ago when the program was first launched, and I hear it has gotten even better than it once was.
This comes at the perfect time for me. Emma just turned two, and my husband and I want to give her a brother or sister soon, but getting pregnant is not an option right now since my weight has gotten so out of control. This time last year, I was doing pretty well. Emma was a year old, and I was dropping that baby weight with a little exercise and discipline. But when she started eating toddler food, so did I. I found myself eating leftover chicken nuggets, stealing french fries and sharing in those bowls of mac n cheese.
As I started to lose my way, the scale reached new heights. And so here I am today, not weighing much less than I did just after my daughter was born. I feel ashamed and embarrassed that I’ve let myself go. I have been living to eat, not eating to live, and I know I have to get myself back on track once and for all. Still, I’m afraid I’m going to feel deprived with the prepackaged foods that are a part of this program. I felt the sting today as I went grocery shopping for my family. I’m not going to be able to eat that, or this, or that.
But what I’m excited about is that I’m committed to blog about my journey, which I think will make me accountable. That may just be the motivation and discipline I need to stick to a healthier lifestyle.
Another thing that I think will help is having the individual servings laid out for me. What I know will be difficult is cooking my weekly lasagna dish for the rest of the family and not being able to eat it. I’ve got about 35 pounds to lose, but I am going to try and take it day by day and just get it done.
From what I’ve heard, it’s the support that will be key in keeping me informed and motivated. I have been warmly welcomed to the Nutrisystem family and I already feel the support system at work. For good measure, I’m following Nutrisystem on twitter and facebook – I’ll take all the support I can get.
I’d love you to join the Nutrisystem Nation right along with me. Follow the link or call 1-888-853-4689.
