“Because of sports, I learned about healthy eating to fuel the body.“

Throughout my life I've been a competitive athlete. Because of sports, I learned about healthy eating to fuel the body. In college I played on the varsity lacrosse team. Our daily workouts were so intense it allowed me to eat pretty much whatever I chose. Instead of sticking to a balanced, nutritional diet, I picked whatever I was in the mood for at the time. And then I graduated from school.

I continued eating as I had before and kept up the workout routine but not to the same degree. Two herniated discs in my lower back ruled out running and jumping. And so the weight began to quickly pile on. In five years, I put on fifty pounds. I tried dieting and exercising more but didn't stick with anything for very long. For every five to ten pounds I lost, I'd end up putting on fifteen.

“Over the 2014 Christmas holidays, I decided enough was enough.“

By this time, I was working as a nanny for two young boys. With all the weight gain I struggled playing around with them on the floor and avoided chasing them around in the yard. As an added incentive, my younger sister was getting married in May. Having seen the amazing transformation a friend made on Nutrisystem, I decided to give it a go. I wanted to look good again, too.

“Now I'm at my ideal weight and I feel like I have my life back!“

During that first week, I logged everything. I wanted to keep track of which foods I liked, what time I ate, how much water I drank—you name it. When I stepped on the scale seven days later, I had lost 6.5 lbs.! That's all the incentive I needed to keep going. By the time my sister's wedding rolled around I had dropped 45 lbs. It was amazing! My mood and energy level were up, and I finally felt like myself again. Just a short time later, I hit my goal. Now when anyone sees MY transformation, I can also wholeheartedly recommend Nutrisystem.
