Size 48 and frustrated

A few years ago, I started to spend most of my time working. I used to play paintball 2–3 times a week, which helped keep me active, but because I was so busy I no longer had time for it. Plus, being a single guy who can't cook, it was very easy to just order a pizza for dinner at the end of a long day. But after doing this for a couple years, I started to put on too much weight. The first sign for me was that I had to buy size 48 pants–that's when I decided I had to change something.

Portion perspective

Over the years I've tried using a few different diets and work out routines and just couldn't get anything to stick into my schedule. A friend of mine told me how easy Nutrisystem was to follow, so I thought it fit perfect for me. The color coding of the food and the easy food preparation were what sold me on staying on the system. At first glance, I was scared of how small the portions were compared to what I had been used to eating. Much to my surprise, though, the meals are very satiating and really helped me realize that I didn't need to eat those big meals I was eating for lunch!

"Now, I can rock climb, play sports, and go for runs—I even feel like I perform better at my job!"

Making this decision at 320 lbs., I knew that the only way this was going to work would be if I kept myself motivated towards a goal—my goal being to become more active and feel comfortable in my body. And I've reached that goal. Now, I can rock climb, play sports, and go for runs—I even feel like I perform better at my job because I have more energy! In fact, I now have enough self–confidence to take my shirt off at the beach, go dancing with friends and buy nice clothes. What a difference! When I look back on this experience, I will never forget the past year and how Nutrisystem changed my life.
