Success Stories - Individual Spotlight
Jeanette M. lost 31.0 lbs.*
"For me, being on Nutrisystem was a life-changing experience."
"It seemed like the more weight I gained, the worse I felt about myself."
Until the birth of my fourth child, I had always been thin and was known for it. Being overweight really affected my self-esteem. It also affected my relationship with my husband, because I didn't feel beautiful anymore. I tried to give it my all at my job, with my kids, my friends and my family, but, secretly, I felt very isolated and sad. I was at the point where I needed a lifeline, and that lifeline turned out to be Nutrisystem. I'm a very picky eater, so I just wasn't sure Nutrisystem would work for me. Boy, was I wrong! Being able to order a la carte was a great thing for me, and I couldn't believe the choices I had. I really loved the food!
"I immersed myself in the Nutrisystem® program."
I got involved in the website, too. I went to the site almost daily, read people's blogs and wrote myself. I followed the program with a lot of hope and optimism, and I'd talk about it with anyone who would listen. Mostly, I began to get results. My energy came back. Now, I wake up, and the first thing I think about is my workout for the day—what I'm going to do and when I can schedule it. It's not a choice anymore, because now it's about maintenance and continuing to sustain what's taken me so long to achieve.
"I finally found the person I felt I lost inside."
People can't believe how much I look like the person they remember from six years ago. Actually, I think I look even better! For me, there is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for giving me the initiative I needed to place that first Nutrisystem order and the strength to follow it through. Now, being the overweight mother of four is no longer my status, and I'm so grateful for this new chapter of my life. Who knew my life could change so much in just a few short months? With the help of Nutrisystem, I eliminated a 31-pound* stumbling block in my life, and now I feel I can accomplish anything.
