Finally- something that works!
Like so many other moms, I am fed up with my postbaby(x2) body. All I want is to look and feel good in my clothes again!!!! I could use a little more energy too, and I know losing a few lbs gets you some energy back. I'm only 31 but I feel so much older these days. My knees are weak, I can't run or even walk very fast without becoming winded, and I hate to bend down and pick things up because my back is always hurting. I have tried for 3 years to "eat right" and exercise only to lose 5 lbs or so and gain it back 2-3 weeks later once I have fallen off my diet. I know myself and know by now it's going to take something a little more drastic, something to hold me accountable, to get me in shape. I don't want to spend another summer uncomfortable in my swimsuit. I have two kids to worry about now, not whether or not the people at the pool think I should be in my swimsuit. :)
A couple weeks ago, I decided to take the Nutrisystem challenge! I ordered it and in the days waiting on it to ship, I got myself psyched up for it and ate all the pizza and cookies I wanted. The money invested in it was my motivation at first. But it no longer is about the money. 13 days and 9 lbs later, I am amazed at what I am seeing. I feel great and know I will feel even better with each additional lb gone and day behind me. This program works! Hopefully they find my blog and ask me to be a spokesperson because that is what I sound like already.:) I don't plan on attaching any before/after pics of myself but here are some pics of my kids having a ball with all my Nutrisystem food the day it came in. Drew sat up shop and said "Mommy, come to my store and pick out some really yummy food"! I replied, "I sure will"!
