It’s time for a change!
I’ve been struggling with my weight all of my life, but this past year has been extremely rough. I am currently 184.8 lbs (the heaviest I have ever been in my life…except when I was pregnant). Stepping onto the scale makes me feel like crying. I don’t want to be overweight…I don’t want to be FAT…I don’t want to feel ugly. But alas, these extra 50 lbs are making me depressed and feeling hideous. I put on a smile whenever there is a camera around, but inside I am cringing at what the camera sees.
I’ve been working with my doctor on my weight loss, our first step was to increase my exercise and change my diet. I did that, and I didn’t lose any weight. So frustrating! Then, he put me on thyroid medication since my thyroid levels were extremely low. I’ve gained weight since then. That’s when I decided it was time to reach out to Nutrisystem. I used Nutrisystem 2 years ago and successfully lost weight… so I was hoping to start the new year with a new me!
I am proud to announce that I am a Nutrisystem blogger and you can follow my weight loss journey over the next 3 months.
My food arrived last week! I couldn’t wait to organize everything and get started! Two very large boxes arrived and it was time to sort through all the food!!! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, shakes and MORE! Everything looked so good, I was sad that I had to wait for a week before starting my journey. But like all good things, it’s worth the wait!
After unloading the food, I downloaded the NuMi free app. This app allows me to track my food, water & exercise on a daily basis. I was able to link my Fitbit (though I am still trying to figure out if it tracks similar to the Fitbit app or if I have to log a specific walk). NuMi is a great tool to help keep you on track and stay within your calories. I used if every time I put something into my mouth. If you bite it, then write it! Every nibble counts!
This week I will be starting my weight loss journey with the Turbo Takeoff! This is an accelerated program to help me start off my weight loss. It includes seven days of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, Turbo Shakes and the NutriCrush Shakes. In this box is key to helping me start my weight loss journey.
As a teacher and all-around busy mom, having meals that are already prepared, packaged, and ready to go makes my life 100% easier! When I opened the box this morning I pulled out my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two shakes in less than 5 minutes!!! I had my day planned! One thing I really need to work on is adding my powerfuels, smartcarbs, and vegetables. Nutrisystem recommends adding 3 powerfuels (like 1 large egg, 2 oz of lean meat, 1 oz of nuts, etc.), 1 smartcarb (1 slice of whole-grain bread, 1/2 cup of high-fiber cereal, 1/4 of dried fruit, etc.), 4 servings of vegetables, and a minimum of 64 oz of WATER!!!!
