I am very happy to announce that I am going to be a Nutrisystem Blogger. I will admit that I am very nervous about this. I am mostly nervous about sharing it with so many people but I hope that it inspires someone to join me in my weight loss journey. After all, everyone needs a support system when starting any weight loss plan and what better support system then a fantastic group of readers.
Let me start with a little bit of background, I have been overweight or chubby most of my life. Growing up my parents always had us try new foods so we wouldn’t be so picky. I think that’s when it started. I have tired practically every diet known to man from the grapefruit diet( eat grapefruit with each meal), cabbage soup diet, South Beach, JC and even Atkins and none of them have really worked. I would lose about 10-15 pounds and then gain it back and then some but nothing ever actually kept it off.
Weight Loss Journey
To add to that I was diagnosed with a herniated disc about 4 years ago and it was the horrible condition in the world. It made it hard to sit, stand or even walk for me. I couldn’t sit or stand for more than 5 minutes without having shooting pains in my leg. It got so bad that it put me in wheelchair for a day or two because the pain was so extreme it was difficult to walk. After having the disc partially removed I thought most of the problems would disappear and they did for a couple months before coming back again. I had to use a walker for a couple of months because the pain was so bad so they decided to send me in for a spinal fusion. That corrected most of the problem but damage was done. I of course ate during that time and not being able to truly exercise the wait was gained.
The time has come to nip it in the bud so to speak, I am very healthy without any major health problems like high blood pressure or diabetes but I don’t want to develop those problems later on because of my weight and that’s my motivation. I want to be a healthier me this year so I am going to embark on this new and wonderful journey. I know there will be ups and downs but I am just as determined as ever to do this.
Thanks to Nutrisystem I now have a way to get healthier and learn about eating healthier while enjoying some delicious looking meals. I will be on the Women’s 18 day Success Plan and over the next 4 months I will be posting about this journey every week all the ups and downs of it as well as my favorite meals and the program in general. I will also be documenting my weight and inches each week. I am really excited about this journey and nervous so I hope you will stop by to check on my progress and maybe share an encouraging thought or maybe your own story.
