Take 2

I'm back!!!  Really I should say "Mrs. Prissy Pants take 2" because I am starting over with a clean slate.  Why have I returned to the blogging world?  Welll....I am about to begin the 17 day diet and I thought it would be helpful to blog about my journey.  Let's start with a little background.  I have struggled with my weight my ENTIRE life.  I was a fat kid who grew up to be a fat adult with brief periods of weight loss mixed in.  The heavest I have been is somewhere in the 170s and the smallest I have been in my adult life is around 140.  I have worn sizes 8 - 14.  My smallest weight can be attributed to boyfriend drama which pushed me to become addicted to the gym.  After I began dating my husband, the weight began to pile back on.  I lost a good amount prior to our wedding (I weighed 148 on our wedding day) but began putting it back on during the honeymoon and have been trying to lose it ever since.  Around Christmas we went to Disneyworld and I returned weighing 175 pounds!!!  My husband and I both began Nutrisystem and stuck with it for about 3 months.  In which time I was able to lose around 13 pounds.  I have gained a few of those back.  Nutrisystem is a good diet, but honestly I only liked 2 of the dinner choices, 2 of the lunch choices, and 3 of the breakfast choices which got old REALLY fast.  I am planning to begin the 17 day diet when my Amazon order comes in and am hoping I will have success.
