After having my third child, I was carrying 30 extra pounds, and simple things like bending down to pick up toys or walking up the stairs were difficult. I just wasn't able to keep up with my active boys. I wanted to be healthy and to make sure that I made a change in my life so I could be there for theirs. Everyone thinks that when you live in Hollywood, you have an entourage of people doing everything for you. The truth of the matter is, I'm a working mother of three. I don't always have time to go to the gym; I don't always have a trainer available to me. So it's important for me to eat right.
I've tried tons of other diets in the past. I'm a pretty picky eater and it was just too difficult counting things and trying to do math with kids running everywhere, a busy career and an active husband. I needed something that simplified my life. Nutrisystem was it. It's a great program for busy moms because when you're running around to soccer games and PTA meetings, life can be really hectic and it's easy to forget to eat or to eat the wrong things. But with Nutrisystem, it's so easy because all the counting's done for you; all the guesswork is taken out of it. The meals are in my cabinet at home, but I can also bring them to work. Or I can throw the bars in my purse. It's just easy, convenient and I'm not starving.
Before I lost the weight, I felt awful getting dressed in the morning. I hated looking in the mirror and trying to hide certain flaws. But now, I can wear shorts for the first time in years! I can put on those tighter jeans and shirts, and show my arms again. I fit in my clothes, and I just feel better. Plus, I have so much more energy, and I can keep up with my boys. Now, looking in the mirror, I feel confident, I feel empowered and I feel sexy.
