Amy's weight-loss worries
I'm just like any other mom. After your body goes through the wringer with pregnancy, you're concerned that it will never be the same. Your body just changes so much. So after giving birth to my second child, Lila, I found myself asking if I could lose the weight this time. Especially after remembering all-too-well how I felt after I had Courtney. Depressed. Lifeless. Undesirable. Embarrassed. Because of my weight, I hadn't wanted my husband Brad to get near me. Plus, it was hard to do the simplest things with Courtney. I just didn't want to go through those bad times again.
"I turned to an old friend to lose the pregnancy weight-again."
My lingering doubts quickly disappeared. Why? Since I'd had great results with Nutrisystem before (I lost 33 pounds*), I just knew that I would lose the weight again. And I did! In fact, within the first week of restarting the program, I noticed that my pants were getting a little bit looser, and that I felt great. That motivated me to keep the weight loss going strong, even while dealing with a toddler and a baby. Eventually, I did it! I lost 28 pounds* and got back down to my post-pregnancy size 2*.
"I feel so much better about myself."
The things I cherish are possible again, thanks to Nutrisystem. Now I go on family walks and it's a breeze, not a wheeze. I can horse around with my two-year-old, and I can easily bend down to play with my infant on the floor. Heck, I even feel great wearing a bikini again! And since I've lost weight again with Nutrisystem, I'm able to be a better mom, a better wife, and a better person-all because I feel so much better about myself.
