Nutrisystem reveals the latest weight loss success story. Mark Miller watched as his wife, Christie, transformed her body and her fitness level on Nutrisystem. He started sneaking her food – at first it was a muffin here or a lunch bar there – then it turned into an all-out effort to taste all of her meals.
While many couples marry and commit to supporting one another “in sickness and in health” and for “richer or poorer,” gaining more than a few pounds along the road of wedded bliss is a common scenario. But, that doesn’t mean couples can’t rally back and dieting together could even strengthen their resolve and their marriage.
Christie Miller, age 47 from Long Beach, CA, can’t point to one dramatic reason for why she started to get heavy. Like many people, she gained 20 pounds simply due to her lifestyle, especially eating and drinking out. But those 20 extra pounds kept her from feeling like her normal, active self. Her change in self-esteem wasn’t lost on her husband, Mark.
“Spouses feel for one another, so when a husband or wife is down about their weight, their partner naturally senses it," explains, Meghan Nichols, R.D., a registered dietitian and member of Nutrisystem’s Research & Development team. “The hard part is not being able to lose the weight for your significant other. However, couples can work to lose it together.”
And, that is just what Christie’s husband, Mark Miller, age 55, did. Here are some of the things Christie and Mark learned along the way and tips to lose weight while dieting alone or as part of a duo:
