“Look at me—I have a waistline again!”
“Nutrisystem got me back on track.”
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.
“Wow! I feel so healthy!”
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.
My family is so proud of me!
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.
Here are Marie Osmond’s five weight loss secrets to her success on Nutrisystem:
1. Nutrisystem made dieting easy.
Nutrisystem showed me what I was supposed to do when it came to dieting. I have tried other diets and many were confusing, making it hard to stick with them. Nutrisystem made it easy and showed me the importance of eating five meals per day.
2. Nutrisystem showed me the importance of breakfast.
Breakfast is such an important part of the day and gives me the fuel I need to start my day right. I started loving breakfast again.
3. Nutrisystem didn’t make me give up my favorite foods.
Nutrisystem gives me a diet version of my favorite foods. They let me have chocolate! A diet with chocolate? Yes, please. I have a sweet tooth so to be able to have chocolate made losing weight even easier. My favorite is the Thin Mint Crisp Bar. It tastes just like a Girl Scout cookie!
4. Nutrisystem helped me stop making excuses.
Before losing weight, I was full of excuses. I don’t have the time, I’m too tired, I’ll start next week. Once I found Nutrisystem, the excuses went away. I was excited to take charge of my health. Ten years later, I am still keeping the weight off and feel great.
5. Nutrisystem is always there if I puts on a few pounds.
It helps me reset when I need it. I don’t deprive myself, especially around the holidays. We have a big family and we love to cook together! If I find I have gained a few pounds, I jump right back on Nutrisystem and that weight comes off. It’s simple and effective.
