Mary After working really hard and long hours at her job for the last four years, I realized that the many hours I spent sitting at a desk and eating a terrible diet of junk food all washed down with way too much soda had resulted in a much larger woman huffing and puffing along the road than I used to be.
I had gotten out of shape and very much overweight and the sight of myself in the bathroom mirror made me decide it was time to reverse the trend. I knew that I needed to change my diet and then do some exercise or I would just keep getting bigger and more unhealthy as time progressed.
So I decided to start with my diet and started reading up on the major diet companies to see which one would suit me best. Nutrisystem was the one that stood out for me. So after reading some reviews online I decided to give it my best shot. I signed up and right away got into liking the food. I soon came to enjoy the structured way of eating and the smaller portions were not a problem. I started exercising and felt I had more energy than ever. I could visibly see the results in needing to buy smaller size clothes.
If anyone were to ask me if Nutrisystem works, I can now say with hand on heart that it worked for me and gave me a slim new body that I'm determined to keep from now on.
No more junk food for me ever again! Admin That's a great story Mary. I can see you made a commitment to yourself by getting on with the exercising and never to going back to eating any processed junk food.
This is a great commitment to make and one that will for sure be a winning one! Joyce I was put off a lot by reading comments from people saying the food tasted terrible and others saying they suffered stomach cramps and horrible gas. Then there were loads of completely different comments from people that were successful and said the food tasted fine and they had no other physical problems. Then I remembered my momma telling me when I was little that haters always shouted loudest while good, honest people spoke quietly if they spoke at all.
I realized most if not all the commentors shouting about how bad the diet was were the failures and the types that always complained about everything. So I decided to try it for myself and let my own experiences tell me the truth. I ordered the Core for Women plan and was able to choose which meals I wanted and which I didn't.
The first thing that struck me was the food, while not being the best I ever tasted, turned out to be actually pretty OK. I didn't get any stomach problems or gas.
I ate the food they sent while adding some vegetables to the main meals, making sure I drank a glass of water before each meal. I felt satisfied after every meal and didn't feel I needed to snack on anything.
Long story short, in the first month I lost a total 14 pounds and was over the moon! I'm 3 weeks into my second order and have lost a further 8 pounds, plus my body has definitely gotten smaller because my clothes are all too big for me already!
I'll continue for another month to see if I can hit my soft goal of 30 pounds lost and you know something? I do believe I'll probably surpass that goal!
What I say to the complainers is you should stop whining and get with the plan and you'll be too busy losing weight to worry about writing hate letters to blogs and forums.
Shame on you for nearly stopping me from trying what is turning out to be the best diet I ever did and thanks to my mom for teaching me a valuable lesson that helped me be a doer and not a whiner!
