Check out NutriSystem!
I am so psyched to start NutriSystem today! And maybe a little scared; the Fast 5 is no joke and I tend to "fail" with things this strict!
I keep telling myself I can do 7 days, one day at a time.
Follow my journey here!
I have ALWAYS struggled with my weight. A few years ago, I lost 70 pounds with proper diet and exercise in about 18 months. I was down to goal weight and a healthy BMI (from obese) and I felt AMAZING!
A car accident in August 2013 sidelined me and took me away from Zumba. I kind of spiraled into depression, with the lack of mental outlet as well as physical outlet that Zumba had provided. Within 3 months, I had gained 25 pounds back and within 18 months (when accident #2 happened), I had gained 80 pounds. Yes, 80 pounds! I was 242 POUNDS...242 POUNDS. Side note: I have since stopped working in NJ so I'm hoping to be accident free like the first 33 years of my life before having to drive every day on Rt 1 in NJ with some of the world's worst drivers!
I'm struggling with my willpower and my fiance isn't very helpful since he's a super picky eater and has an insane sweet tooth that keeps candy stocked in our house at all time! I'm hoping to get married on vacation in April (I know, I still haven't planned anything!) and ideally, I'd like to feel as sexy as I did at 160 pounds. Truthfully, if I can get down to about 190-195 in 6 months, I think I'd be happy...but of course, I'd love to be at goal weight!
Starting Stats (10/5/2015):
Weight: 226.5 lbs
