I usually don't make many significant new years resolutions, but this year was different. I found myself continuing down a road of lowered self-esteem and unhappiness with my weight. Before having kids, I was an active and skinny woman who barely thought twice about what she ate. I was never overweight and did not have any issues with how I felt or looked. But 4 years and 3 kids later, my body has taken some big hits and the pounds piled on. I gained 20 extra pounds with my first child, another 5 pounds more with my 2nd, and around 5 more now with my 3rd. Now I'm at a point where I am 35 pounds heavier than I want to be and stuck in an unhappy and unhealthy body. It felt like things kept adding up and adding up until I finally decided enough was enough--it was time for a change!

Now because I haven't done any previous diets or exercise plans, I wanted to try something that I knew would be easy, effective, contain a good support system, and have all the tools a newbie to weight loss would need...which is why I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that I am about to start Nutrisystem SUCCESS!!
I am so honored to be able to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation and to allow all of you to follow me through my weight loss journey to a healthier and happier me!!
