It has been almost 20 months since I was last pregnant, and I don't think anyone is buying the whole "baby weight" excuse any longer. I need to either find another excuse, or just get rid of that weight once and for all. Since I don't like making excuses for anything, I guess the weight is going to have to go.
I haven't been happy with my weight for most of my adult life. I did a horrible, unhealthy, no-carb diet before my wedding four years ago and for once I was happy with my weight at 137 pounds. I found out I was pregnant a week or so after we got back from our honeymoon, and now, four years and two babies later, I am still struggling to see the 130s again. I have been holding steady right at about 150 pounds. I could probably maintain that for a while with minimal effort, but I am not happy with my body and I want to do something about it.
So why can't I get back to my pre-pregnancy weight? Well the main reason is that I am too busy. I work 9 hour days during the week, and by the time we eat dinner, play with the kids, get them bathed and in bed, I am exhausted. The last thing I want to do is exercise. Therefore, my weight has to be controlled by diet alone, which hasn't been great at all. I have no willpower. I don't have time to make my lunch in the mornings, so I eat lunch out most days. I know that I could make healthier choices when I eat out, but I just don't. If only I could have someone prepare my meals for me and make me stick to a healthier diet...
I'm excited to tell you that my "if only" has now become a reality! For the next four months, Nutrisystem will be preparing my meals for me. I was recently accepted into the Nutrisystem Nation Blogging Program and I can't wait to get started! I am looking forward to getting on the right path to eating healthy, and to finally saying goodbye to the "baby weight", and then some.
I am still waiting for my first food shipment to arrive, along with all of the information I need to start the Nutrisystem program, but I just had to share this exciting news with you all! I will be posting each week to keep you up to date on my progress with Nutrisystem. I hope you will follow along with me on this journey to finally be happy with my weight again.
