Too much fun = too much fat
When I think back, I don't really have a dramatic reason for why I started to get heavy. Like many people, I gained 20 pounds simply due to my lifestyle—by eating out and drinking out and having a whole lot of fun. It's that simple. I had so little energy and I just didn't feel like my normal, active, fun self. I live near a California beach and I would choose to put on my bathing suit and just lie in the backyard instead. I remember actually saying out loud at one point, "Yikes, I'm fat!" And that's exactly how I felt lugging around those extra 20 pounds.
Getting into the swing of it
I tried to lose the weight. I'm a very active person and I worked out a lot. But that did me no good because I wasn't trying hard enough to control my eating habits. Then my golf coach introduced me to Nutrisystem. I understood that Nutrisystem was a healthy, convenient diet, and I knew that I could stick to it, so I ordered. Once I got the food, I quickly found that I loved it! In addition, I found the program has actually helped me eat more often during the day, so I got to eat a larger volume of foods. The 24 lbs.* came off so easily.
"I'm so thankful to Nutrisystem for helping me get my life back."
People are always asking me, "Wow! How much weight did you lose?" I feel fabulous when people compliment me, and I immediately tell them that I did it with Nutrisystem, and that they can be successful with it, too. After all, this has really worked for me—I'm so thankful to Nutrisystem for helping me get my life back. I can enjoy everything I used to do even more because I feel great. I feel healthier, and I even feel younger! At 46 years young, I feel better than I've ever felt at any age!
