"Oh my God! What have you done?"

Well, it's probably not the best visual in the world, but one of my eye-opening moments was one time when I got out of the shower. I saw myself in the mirror and I thought, "Oh my God! What have you done?" It was really realization of: you look awful. It really was. It brings you down, and I think it shows. Another defining moment happened during my radio show, which is also televised on TV. I was doing the show on the road in Cleveland and my parents were there; I remember I was doing the show and my parents came in at the break. I went down to give my mom and dad a hug and my mom, she's very straightforward. She looked at me and said, "This is the worst you've ever looked." I thought, "Wow, nice to see ya, too." But that's my mom. So, of course, doing a radio-type of shtick, my partner got a scale on the stage. He basically mocked me on-air about what my mother had said, so he wanted to weigh me-because I said that there was no way I was over 300 pounds. So they got that scale and sure enough, I was 313 pounds. It was the highest I ever was. My mother was right.

Doing it for family

Ultimately, though, I needed to lose weight because I'm a real family guy. I have three kids and a beautiful wife, and I just love spending time with them being involved with their lives. I want to be around them, and the way things were going, it wasn't going to happen. I decided to do everything I could so I'd be around as long as I could. One day, I was having a conversation with Dan Marino and he was telling me about Nutrisystem and how it's regular food but it's going to teach you control. I was sold.

"I feel good about myself."

Well, the best thing about the Nutrisystem program for me is the fact that it's real food. What you learn is portions. So you're eating real food, but you're just learning to eat it in the right proportion. That really helps for a guy like me who was a big ol' fat defensive lineman. Another great thing is that I feel good about myself. That's first and foremost. Now my wife likes what she's seeing, and so do I. I really have been impressed with Nutrisystem. I'd really like to stress the word "diet" is just the wrong word to use-Nutrisystem is not only a diet, it teaches you, and that's what's lacking in other diets. It teaches you to be smart about what you eat. I mean, that's just the truth. That's what it is.
