I am super excited to announce that I have been chosen to participate in the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger program!
I can’t wait to start this 4 month journey. I am nervous, excited, embarrassed, happy, sad, scared and a million other things all at once. I am happy to be doing this for 2 reasons. First, I need to lose weight. I can’t ignore the fact that I need to get my health in check. Second, I am able to reach others with my blog. I hope I can help people and I look forward to learning from others as well.
Being a vegetarian, you’d think I’d be very healthy. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. I do eat vegetables, but carbohydrates are my BFF! But, it’s time for me and carbs to break our one-sided relationship. I became a vegetarian when I was 12. I loved animals more than anything in the world and I wanted to become a veterinarian. I decided that I didn’t want to eat animals anymore. 21 years later, I didn’t become an animal doctor, but I still don’t eat meat.
When I was pregnant with my first son I gained 65lbs. I had surgery to remove a football-sized cyst from my right ovary while I was 4 and a half months pregnant with him. I think just having major surgery and being pregnant caused such a big gain. I wasn’t really allowed to do much. During the following years I lost and gained on and off. When I was pregnant with my 2nd son I gained 25lbs. (Funny thing, I gained different amounts of weight with each pregnancy, but was the same exact weight at the end of both pregnancies! lol)
My kids are now 11 and 6 and I think it’s time that I stop using them as an excuse! HAHAHA
Keep an eye out for more #NSNation posts to come!
