Lose Weight In A Healthy Way

Lose Weight In A Healthy Way

If you need to get fit, you need to lose weight in a healthy way. I am so blessed to have been chosen to be a product reviewer for such an amazing blog.  I am honored to find products that I truly love and am able to share them with you.  I try to be as honest and authentic as I can be and I want that to come across in my reviews.  Bearing that in mind, I have some really exciting news to share with you.  I have been chosen to be involved with the Nutrisystem Blogger Outreach Program.  This program connects bloggers who need to lose weight with Nutrisystem so we can record our journey via a weekly post.

I want to be as honest as I can about my experience because I am only as sick as my secrets and I have hid my overeating for too long now.  I know there are others who have faced the same issues that I have and I hope in my being open with you, I can help others to be brave and strong and finally get healthy.  I have been a compulsive/stress over eater for almost 25 years now.  I have been to many programs and tried many diets, but none worked.  I have gone from 140 pounds in 1987 and have slowly climbed to my current weight of 242.  I had a back injury about 2 years ago and I have been virtually bed bound for a large portion of that time.  With the medications and lack of activity, I gained 40 pounds over the last 12 months alone.  My knees hurt, it is hard to get up from a sitting position, and my stomach looks like I did when I was ready to deliver one of my 3 babies.  I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and am borderline diabetic.  My oldest daughter recently came to visit with her new boyfriend and I was humiliated that I was so big.  I was probably more embarrassed for her than myself.  Chelsea remembers me when I was a thinner and healthier mom, but my two younger kids do not.  It was really hard for me to even pose for the pictures as I don’t want anyone to see me like this.  If I don’t lose weight now, I am terrified of what will happen.  I am embarrassed by these facts, but I need to say them out loud in order to deal with them.  I look forward to sharing this journey with you and I hope to receive your prayers and words of encouragement in this endeavor.
