Joining the Nutrisystem Nation

This week I started the Nutrisystem program and will be following it for the next 4 months. I’ve been interested in Nutrisystem for awhile now, my mother and aunt did it with some great results but I’ve never been able to afford it on my own. Thankfully Nutrisystem is going to be sponsoring me for the next 4 months and it means the world to me!

I’ve been on other diets more times than I can count but I have never tried a program where the food is already prepared so I was really excited about this. Not having to cook? That is amazing, because honestly, I am not a good cook but I can call in a to-go order like no one else. With Nutrisystem, my breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert is already prepared for me. All I have to do is add some protein, dairy, vegetables, fruit and carbs to supplement each meal.

This is me on my birthday in October. I’ve dealt with weight for as long as I can remember and I’ve been on other diets more times than I can count. Now that I’m in my early thirties it’s really time to get serious and get this weight off so I can live my life to its fullest.

My weight has kept me down for a long time, it’s the reason why you probably don’t know what I look like until now… because I’m just not comfortable or confident showing you what I look like without taking a gazillion photos in just the right lighting or just the right angle. I’m trying to turn this around now and become the person I want to be, a healthier person!

For the next 4 months, I’m going to be blogging about my experiences with Nutrisystem once a week. While blogging about a diet isn’t necessarily beauty related, I know, I hope you’ll bear with me during this time. After all, our diet affects our skin and our skin is at the core of our look… right? Here’s too some good before and after shots! :)

Disclosure: Nutrisystem is providing their program and support services free of charge for my participation in the Nutrisystem Nation Blogging Program.

  1. Congratulations, lady! What an amazing Blessing to be able to be a part of this! I’ve always wanted to try one of these major weight loss programs – since high school to be exact! I, too, struggle w/ my weight & have since the day I was born. I totally know how you feel when it comes to not liking to take pictures – I hate it & my appearance is the reason why I’m afraid to start doing YouTube makeup videos or post pics of myself on my blog. It’s sad, but a reality when it comes to those of us who struggle w/ the pounds. Anyhow, congrats again to you – I can’t afford a program, but please keep us updated & I look forward to seeing your progress! :-)

    First of all…..you are gorgeous!!! I, too have struggled with my weight forever!! It has gotten so much worse since I’ve had my kids. I recently had weight loss surgery. I’m down 23 pounds! Love your blog…I’m a makeup freak!!! I’m a nurse & I actually worked full time nights at one time & had a job working the Clinique counter!! Best of luck to you!!

      Thank you so much Jessica! And congrats and good luck to you! I would have had surgery already if I could afford it or had insurance that covered it. You’re far braver than I am.
