I've got to be honest. I was overweight and out of shape. I didn't feel good. I was tired. My joints ached. My confidence was down. Like so many of you, I was unhappy about how I looked and how I felt. I knew I was getting older but I didn't want to feel older. Plus, talk about stress. Here I am, a single mom managing a career. It was very easy to put on a few pounds here and a few pounds there. Sometimes life just gets you off track and before you know it, you're 50 pounds heavier. Well, Nutrisystem got me back on track.
When I started Nutrisystem, my first goal was to be healthy. But as a woman I love having a small waistline and an even smaller backside. And I have to admit, thanks to Nutrisystem, I have both. I have so much energy now, too. I haven't had this kind of energy in at least 10 years. I feel like getting out and rock climbing and biking, and doing things I love doing but didn't because I was overweight. I feel better, and I feel younger, too. They say you can't turn back time. Well, look at me and say that. Because I say you CAN.
I admit it. I love to get compliments. It makes me feel good to hear that I look great. A while back, my brothers came out to visit me in L.A. They couldn't believe how much weight I'd lost, so I got Jimmy, Jay and Merrill on the program. But I have to tell you that the best compliment I received was from my 19-year-old daughter. The other day she looked at me with her beautiful eyes and said, "Wow, mom. You look great. I think you are a hottie!" Look. Losing weight may not make me a better mom. But it does make me a happier mom. As women, we spend a lot of time caring for everyone else but spend zero time for ourselves. I finally did something great for me so I could do something great for my family.
