Nutrisystem #48

Not only does today wrap up my 48th week on Nutrisystem, but my last sponsored post for Nutrisystem.  I'm sad to see it come to an end.  But I'm also excited to start this journey on my own.
I will say that I will be eternally grateful to Nutrisystem for giving me the chance to participate in their blogger program...when I say it literally saved my life...I mean it.
Nutrisysytem gave me the tools and the motivation to jump start my weight loss/healthy life journey.  With their support, I have lost a total of 34 pounds.  Sure, I would have liked to have lost more, but I'm pretty darn proud of myself that I got as far as I did.  I have gone from a size 18/20 to a size 6/8 in pants and from a size 2X to a small/medium in shirts.  The jacket that I'm wearing below is one that I couldn't even button when I got it, now I can wrap it around myself.
I used to have to use elevators all the time, now I can run up stairs and not feel winded or have to use my asthma inhaler.  There's a super cute video I did for Nutrisystem on their YouTube channel of me racing Nathan up these very stairs.
I used to eat bags of chips and candy bars for breakfast, Now I realize just how horrible that is...and the damage that I was causing my body.  I crave carrots and salad and fruit now.  I haven't eaten a French fry in almost a year and I don't even miss it.
I think the best part of this whole thing is that now I can play with my children.  I used to think that playing and spending time with them meant making treats with them and sitting on the floor and rolling match box cars across it.  Now I can play kickball and foursquare and run and jump around and do all sorts of fun things.  We have dance parties and wii "just dance" competitions, we walk and run together, we actually do more active things.  I no longer sit on the bench at playgrounds watching them play...I either walk the track or play right along with them.  And sometimes they tire out before I do.
If you've been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know that my family is my everything.  Knowing that I am healthy and have more energy makes me so happy.  I said this from the very beginning, I wasn't doing this to get skinny or be sexy, or anything like that...I was doing this for my health.  I want to stick around and watch my children grow old, I want to see them have children of their own and still be able to play and have fun with my future grandchildren, without having to drag around an oxygen tank.  I want to fall asleep at night knowing that I don't need a machine to help me breath.  I want to spend the rest of my life happy and healthy, full of life and energy. 
And Now I Can.
 Nutrisystem has this really awesome contest going on right now called "Now I Can", if you have lost weight on Nutrisystem you can enter to win.
Please note, that I am not done losing weight or living this healthy lifestyle...I feel like I just started.  I am going to continue on my own and using Nutrisystem through what most of their members call a "flex plan".  I will still be eating some of the foods and following along for the most part, but incorporating my own food choices as well.  While I am still using the program, I am no longer being sponsored by Nutrisystem as of today.
Also, I have a really cool, totally awesome {yes, this deserves my best valley girl impression} giveaway coming up....starting next week.  So please keep reading and following along on my adventure.  One door is closing but a whole new life is waiting for me out there and I'm sharing it all with you!
