It’s Time For A Nutrisystem Weight Intervention
Recently I accepted a spot as an #NSNation (Nutrisystem) Blogger. Why? I am almost 60 lbs over where I want to be, and unfortunately, every time I step on the scale, that number seems to grow. I’ve struggled off and on with my weight in the past, but once I got to be over 40 it got really hard to fight it. I am now at the point that I know I can’t ignore it any more. Nutrisystem is going to help me get back to a healthy weight, where I want to be.
I heard on the news this morning that (according to the CDC) over 1/3 of the adults in the U.S. are obese. I know I’m counted in that 1/3. Please don’t tell me I’m not fat. I know I am, and I know it’s very unhealthy. I know that if I lost this extra weight, my knees would not be in so much pain. I know that my back problems would also improve. The little voices in my head also remind me that my mother has diabetes, and that I am headed for the same health issues, at an earlier age, if I don’t take control now. Now is the time.
Starting next week, my first week with Nutrisystem – will be the Turbo Takeoff. It’s an accelerated program that will help me get started losing this flab I’ve accumulated. It’s a full week (7 days) of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, Turbo Shakes, NutriCrush® Shakes, and a meal planner to help me through that important first week.
Ok, I’m ‘fessing up now, so pay attention. Right now, I weight 217 lbs. I’m telling you this because it will help me stay true to the program. I want this to work, so I want you to help hold me accountable. I’m not asking for criticism, because I criticize myself enough. I’m asking for support. I want to make this work. I’ve downloaded the NuMi app to my phone. I’ve been reading The Leaf to help me learn more ways to help me lose the weight. I will do this.
