At my heaviest weight of 406 lbs., I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and other serious, weight-related health concerns. My doctors gave me four options to lose weight, and of those four, I chose to lose it on my own. I did not begin my search for a weight loss program with much optimism, but I knew I had to do it to save my life. I researched different plans and found Nutrisystem to be the one that best suited my needs and lifestyle.
I am a music instructor at a community college, and I have many outside music projects as well. I don't have time to attend meetings or weigh-ins. I have only small windows of time to fit meals in, which I used to spend outside the drive-through windows of fast food restaurants. But now, I pop a Nutrisystem® entrée into the microwave and in a matter of minutes, I'm enjoying a healthy and delicious meal. I absolutely love the convenience of Nutrisystem—and of course the food is scrumptious!
I have lost 223 lbs.* on the Nutrisystem program so far. My doctors have taken me off all medications, including diabetes and blood pressure medications. After my weight loss, negotiating things like stairs is so much easier. I no longer have to use electronic wheelchairs in grocery stores, theme parks, etc., and I no longer have to use seat belt extensions in cars or on airplanes. I'm not finished losing weight yet, but I feel better and healthier now than ever before!
