No one was more surprised than Joey when he stepped on a scale and saw that he weighed 208 lbs.

Nine months earlier, he was tipping the scale at 281. His wife, Amanda was worried. It was Christmas and she was concerned that Joey wouldn’t be around to see his son grow up. Joey realized she was right.

“My weight had gotten out of control. I had no discipline in my life when it came to food or my health. I ate what I wanted and didn’t care about the results.”

Joey realized he had to make a change for both himself and his family. Problem was “he didn’t have a clue where to start.” That night he saw a commercial for Nutrisystem and decided to give it a try, hoping it might help him lose 10-15 pounds. Joey knew that he needed to lose more than that—he had to, at least get under 250 lbs. That was the maximum weight requirement to go sky diving and zip lining, all activities Amanda yearned to do with her husband.

“I set my goal for 215. In my mind, this was an almost impossible challenge but I was sick of missing out and letting my wife down.”

Joey was determined.

“Nutrisystem has taught me self-discipline and now I know how to eat healthy.”

He added daily cardio to his Nutrisystem diet, and set his watch to make sure he drank all the water that was required. “The two took over my life and changed it forever. And the food is awesome! People ask me if I will stop Nutrisystem and honestly, the answer is no. I’ll continue doing Nutrisystem as long as they let me!”

PS: Months after surpassing his goal weight, Joey and his wife went zip lining in Honduras!
