When I was younger, I was very small and petite. As a child, my Mom had to buy me "Slim" pants and it remained that way all the way up until I hit puberty at the age of 12. Ever since then, my weight has been a roller coaster! I wasn't overweight as a teen but because I had larger breasts then most of the girls my age, it made me appear a lot larger than I really was which caused a lot of unhealthy eating habits and behaviors. After getting married and starting a family, my weight really started to climb. After having each child, I would end up at a weight higher than where I started and after years of yo-yo dieting and four children, I am at a point in my life where I have said enough is enough. Looking in the mirror is something that is very depressing for me because I no longer recognize the person staring back at me. I hit a low point last week when it started to get warmer outside and I had to drag out the summer clothes from last year. I was unable to get any of my shorts fastened and the one pair that I did made me want to cry when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. This was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. It made me realize that I have let bad habits take over my life and if I don't do something about it now, I will surely pay for it in the future. My Dad was diagnosed with diabetes while only in his 30's and I don't want history to repeat itself with me. I want to be at a healthier weight so I can be here for my family but more importantly, I want to do this for ME! I want to feel better about myself and I want to live my life to its fullest and I cannot do that where I am at right now.
I have been given a very unique opportunity and I am really excited to share with you all that I am going to be joining the Nutrisystem family very soon!!!! I have heard a lot of great things about Nutrisystem so I am really excited to be joining the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program. As a part of the Women's Success Select Program, I will be able to enjoy meals from their pantry stable collection as well as their frozen meals. I was worried at first because I am a really picky eater (rarely eat pork or beef products) but what I didn't realize is that I could actually choose my menu so I am super stoked to try out the foods that I have picked for my first month on the program! They had a HUGE selection and I was able to pick some of my favorites like pizza, grilled chicken and all of my favorite breakfast foods like pancakes, muffins and oatmeal!
Stay tuned because my next post will be the beginning of a new and exciting journey as I start the program. I can't wait to share my progress with you all and I hope that some of you will join me on my journey as well!!!! Today I am at a weight higher than I have ever been, wearing clothes at sizes I never thought I would see.......but this will be the last time I will see these numbers because I am going to take this opportunity as a chance for a new life. A new life for myself and for my family. In order to be the best for them, I need to be the best for me and this is where it all begins.
