Weight Loss After 40

If you’re like most women over 40, you’ve probably noticed that it has become a lot easier to gain a few pounds than to lose them. The foods that I ate with abandon in my 20s and 30s now seem to stick to my body like glue. As I got older, my life also became more complicated. The combination of children, work, aging parents, and other commitments left me feeling time strapped and less in control. Regular gym visits became a thing of the past and I started to pay less and less attention to what I was eating. I slowly crept up from being a size 8 to a size 10/12 in no time.

Over the years, I have tried quite a few fad diets…I avoided processed carbs, stopped drinking wine (this was miserable!), went paleo and sipped homemade bone broth, but all of these seemed to demand way too much time and effort. It would go well for a week or so, but then I would slip into old habits and scarf down a half eaten plate of my daughter’s leftover mac and cheese, pop a few yogurt covered pretzels, pour myself a tumbler of red wine and dwell on my pathetic lack of willpower. Rather than surrender to the middle-age spread, I decided this year enough is enough. It was time to take back control of my body, tighten up my eating habits and take back my life. One thing I learned from my past experience, is that if I was going to do this, I needed help.

I wanted a program that was convenient, had food choices (and food that tactually tasted good), wouldn’t leave me feeling deprived, and most importantly helped me lose weight, improve my health, and have more energy.

That’s when I discovered Nutrisystem’s UNIQUELY YOURS LEAN 13 program – a perfect fit with what I was looking for. If you’re ready to take back control too, then join me on my 4-week journey with the Lean 13 program. We can lose up to 13 lbs and 7 inches overall in the first month!

I signed up and have received my first shipment – it was fun opening up all the goodies! A key component of LEAN13 is the boost you get from the Turbo Takeoff when you begin the program; a registered dietitian and elite personal trainer designed the eating plan.

To help you start strong, you’re set up with all of your meals and snacks during the first week, including:

  • 7 days of specially selected breakfasts, lunches and dinners
  • 7 TurboShakes™ packed with protein and probiotics to support digestive health and help bust belly bloat
  • 7 NutriCrush® bars that crush hunger with the protein and fiber you need to stay satisfied between meals

Along with the meals, you get a specially designed Daily Tracker to help you record your intake and maximize your results. Plus, you get FREE access to NUMI, a really helpful, easy-to-use app – I love NUMI! I signed up immediately. It makes tracking super fun and easy. Along the way, you’ll have a professional support team, with comprehensive counseling options from trained weight loss coaches and certified diabetes educators available seven days a week.

After completing my first week, I’ll graduate to Nutrisystem’s meal plan for the next three weeks and watch as the weight continues to drop. I can’t wait!
