6 months and 26 pounds ago....


Six months ago, I saved my life.
Yes, I honestly feel that I was on a downward path of destruction...
Maybe that sounds dramatic to some people, but to me, it doesn't.
At 180 pounds and 5'2" I was obese.
I had major breathing problems, that went deeper than just having asthma.
I was addicted to junk food and I ate nothing but crappy food.
I'm pretty sure that if I continued down the same path that I would have gotten type II diabetes.

Now, at 154, I'm not obese anymore...I'm still considered overweight for my height, but
I feel so much healthier.
I make much better food choices.
I ride bikes with my kids, I play foursquare and kickball with my kids
 I'm living a life that I could only have dreamed of at 180.
A year ago, when I dropped Amanda off at college, I had to use the elevator when we moved her into her dorm, because I couldn't walk up stairs without stopping to catch my breath.
Now, I'm walking up stairs all the time, all day long at my own college and I never feel winded.
I have come a long way, my family tells me that they are proud of me.
And to tell you the truth, I'm proud of me too.
I have so much more confidence in myself.
April 27, 2012
the day my life changed for the better.
the day I started Nutrisystem.
I don't think I could have done this without their program.
Having everything already prepared and ready to eat, makes it possible for me to not have to think, or count calories or points or anything like that.
I am learning how to eat properly
yes, at 40 years old, I had no idea how to eat the right foods.
I was one of those that considered the four food groups as
No joke.
Exercise was something that I always tried to keep up with, but I had nothing to hold me accountable
with Nutrisystem, I write everything down and while no one is coming along and making sure that I'm doing everything that I said I am, I still tell the truth when I write it all down.
 if I can do can too.
Let's do it together.
