Nutrisystem. Compensated customers. Weight lost on prior
Football was always a big part of my life. But in 2006, my college football career ended due to dangerously high blood pressure. By 2011, I had gained 50 more pounds. I went to Universal Studios that year and I could barely fit into the rides. I finally looked down the road and knew I did not want to be that parent who was too overweight to ride amusement park rides with his kids. Something had to change.
Some sisterly straight talk
I battled my weight for the next seven years. By December 2013, I decided I was going to get healthy. I smoked my last cigarette and the next day I had my last alcoholic beverage. Next was my weight. I went to my little sister and asked her to take before pictures (as she had so many times before). But she said, "No. You can't stick with a diet." She was 100% right, and it was what I needed to hear. (Though I had to prove her wrong, too.)
So I ordered the My Way program. I lost 15 lbs.* in my first week using Fast 5. And with that kind of start, I really got motivated. I followed the program, worked out three times a week and, to my surprise, by June I made my goal. I finally like the person I see in the mirror again. I am happier, more confident, and overall have a better life than I did before—even without football. I honestly thank Nutrisystem and my little sister for saving my life!
