I was thin as a child, but I come from a family of big women, so I knew that excess weight could be an issue when I got older. The problem is, I never really thought it would happen so soon. When I was 21, I spent my first summer as a summer associate at a law firm in New York, and I completely lost control. I went to three and four course lunches every day and went to dinners and drinking events at night. By the end of that summer, I had gained 35 lbs. And that was just the beginning. Three years later, I woke up weighing in at 232.6 lbs. Through the years, I tried several diets and weight loss plans, but nothing worked. I could never stick with any plan for more than a month. I would lose ten pounds and then gain fifteen. I began to feel like it was impossible to lose the weight.
I had just about given up when I decided to try Nutrisystem. I kept seeing the commercials and thinking, it couldn't possibly work. I didn't know anything about the program or anyone who had lost weight on it, but I figured, "What do I have to lose? If it doesn't work, at least I have food for a month, and I am no worse off than I was before." Boy, am I glad that I gave it a try. My only regret is that I didn't call sooner!
My first week on Nutrisystem I lost several pounds. I couldn't believe it! I stepped on the scale three times to make sure it wasn't a mistake. That was just what I needed to keep me going. I quickly figured out what foods I liked and what I didn't. There were plenty of items I enjoyed so it was easy to customize my orders with enough variety for the month. I used the Nutrisystem website to help me track my progress and keep me motivated. I found a fantastic support group on the discussion boards, so I never felt like I was alone on the journey. And to date, I have lost 73 lbs.*, and I feel great. I have so much energy, and I feel like I can do anything! When I started Nutrisystem I wore a size 20, and today I wear a size 8/10*. I am so proud of what the program has helped me accomplish.
