Way back in 1991, I lost a lot of weight—50 pounds to be exact. I did it on the NutriSystem program. I was even in a nationwide commercial—what an experience! Fast forward 21 years (wow, that seems like such a long time, and I guess it is) and I have gained 70 pounds from my thinnest when I did the commercial.
I have become totally disgusted with my weight. I lumber instead of walk. I jiggle when I talk. (I sound like Mrs. Claus!) I’ve tried dieting on my own, but that obviously didn’t work. I tried WW, but that was only moderately successful. My thin-as-a-rail husband doesn’t understand why I can’t do this on my own, but to give him is due, he is supporting me.
Anyway, I have joined NutriSystem again. My hopes is that by making my weight-loss journey more public, that I will be more apt to stay on it and follow the plan closely. I know it works—it did in ‘91!
Anyway, my food gets here tomorrow. I’ve already gone on the website and logged my weight and measurements. I’ve created a profile, and I am ready to jump in with both feet on Thursday.
I need to figure out what extras I need, as the plan only provides the main course. I add in Power Fuels (proteins), Super Carbs, and fruits and veggies. Oh, and I think I add in dairy too.
Wish me luck!
