For a majority of my teenage years I was overweight, and as time went on my weight got higher and higher. It never really bothered me until I got on the scale one day and it read "229." I knew I was overweight, but 229 pounds?!? I made a vow then and there that I would never give the scale a chance to read "230." I had to do something! So I began exercising and eating healthier. By the end of the year I had lost 22 lbs.*, but I was still 207 pounds and, standing at 5'3", I knew this wasn't good. And did I forget to mention that I had started getting heart palpitations, too? This wasn't good, either.
I needed help in speeding up the process of losing weight, since my way was working but I still wasn't sure what I was doing (what to eat or what an appropriate portion size was) so one night after seeing an advertisement on TV for Nutrisystem, as a New Year's resolution I went on the website and ordered. I was a little skeptical that it would work but I thought, "Why not give it a try?" Well, I am so glad that I did! Right away, I found that the food was really good. And you know what? In the first week I lost 5 pounds!* So there were really no excuses; that was all it took to keep me motivated! Every week after that I lost weight, and by the end of the year I had made my goal of 150 lbs.! I lost 57 lbs.* on Nutrisystem and went from a 16 to a size 10!* Now I am happier and more confident.
I want to stress that Nutrisystem wasn't just a diet for me; it totally changed my life! It gave me a new way of thinking. I now know what a proper portion size is, and even though I'm no longer eating Nutrisystem foods I've continued to lose weight through exercise (I LOVE exercising now!) and using the principles of a low-GI diet that Nutrisystem taught me. I now weigh 132 pounds and am wearing a size 6!* So, in total, I lost 75 lbs.* on Nutrisystem! Who would have ever thought that would be possible? Certainly not me! I am a new person—Nutrisystem totally changed my life!
