Like many Olympic athletes, my journey on Nutrisystem has taken committment, dedication, patience and a singleminded focus toward achieving my goal. And today I’m excited to report that I’ve made it. No medal ceremony, but alot of satisfaction from knowing I set my mind to lose 100 pounds and I did it! Read on…
When you hear the stories of the people that have realized a dream, it’s always so inspiring. And I hope that as you’ve been on this journey with me, that you’ve found inspiration in some of the struggles, challenges and triumphs that I’ve had. I’m forever grateful to have had this opportunity with Nutrisystem–it has changed my life for the better in so many ways.
As I said in my first Nutrisystem post, I’ve gained and lost hundreds of pounds. But I finally think I have done the work and have the tools to make this weight loss a permanent change. I’ve learned about the importance of portion control, I’ve found success in a low-glycemic approach to my diet and I’ve learned to commit and actually like daily exercise.
For some perspective, I’ve gone from a size 22/24 to a size 14, which is really exciting. My BMI has gone from 43.6 to 27.4; still considered “overweight”, but much better! And of course, I have to post a before and after:
As I close the weight loss phase and begin maintenance, I’d like to thank all who have been reading my weekly Nutrisystem updates and of course, thank Meredith and Nutrisystem for the amazing support. After starting Nutrisystem on March 13, 2011, I can finally say….I’ve lost 2.8 lbs. since my last update, bringing my total weight loss to 100 lbs. (woot!). If you’d like to lose weight and get healthier on Nutrisystem, or for more information, go to www.nutrisystem.com and take advantage of the summer savings.
