FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Reality star Darrell Sheets may be storing many things these days, but extra weight is not one of them. The 56-year-old treasure hunter recently revealed that he has lost 40 pounds thanks to Nutrisystem (NASDAQ: NTRI), a leading provider of weight management products and services as well as a new fitness regime.
At more than 300 pounds, Sheets realized he had become that guy on the couch who needed to lose a significant amount of weight. After losing an initial 35 pounds, Sheets turned to Nutrisystem to help him continue his weight loss. Appropriate for his busy lifestyle and instrumental in helping him manage his pre-diabetes, Nutrisystem was the perfect program for him.
"My joints hurt. My body hurt. I was tired of exercise with no results. Plus, I had to get away from eating cheeseburgers and making bad choices on the set," says Sheets. "Nutrisystem was the easy answer."
Sheets also relied heavily on the support of his wife, Kimber, to stay on the weight loss track, claiming she was a big motivator from the beginning. Today, Sheets is making better choices, learning portion control, and continuing his success, thanks in large part to Kimber's support and knowledge of the right weight loss program—one that would work for him.
What's more, Sheets says he has a new lease on life, and he hopes to be an inspiration to others looking to achieve similar weight loss goals. He even employs the same thought process on losing weight that he does when buying storage lockers.
"It's all about hope," says Sheets. "Hope is having 200 bucks to buy a locker and a chance to change your life. It's that same hope that motivated me to lose weight. I knew life would be much sweeter when I achieved my goal. Now, I want to spread that message of hope to others. If I can change one life at a time by helping someone get off the couch, I will be happy."
