"I feel like a new person with this whole new sense of confidence, and I truly I believe that the sky's the limit!"
"I couldn't ignore the reality of my weight
As a medical student, I was working toward my dream of becoming a doctor. But the stress of school was showing, and I soon found myself 50 lbs. heavier and barely able to manage the demand of weekly exams. Never in a million years had I expected to be here: heavy, unhealthy and depressed. While watching TV one night, I learned about Nutrisystem as Marie Osmond, my fellow Utahan, shared her story about losing weight with the program. The food that was flashing on the screen actually looked good: pizza, pasta and dessert. That, and testimonials on the website from people who struggled just like me, were all the encouragement I needed. And now, I'm proud to say that I am 62 lbs. thinner, and I'm wearing a size 2/4*—I used to be a 16!
"Nutrisystem changed my entire way of thinking."
I seriously couldn't believe how delicious the food tasted; I even had to read the calories twice to believe I wasn't cheating! But the best part was that I didn't have to worry about my next meal because it was all planned out for me. For once in my life, I was able to stay on a plan that was consistent and healthy, and, to my surprise, I never felt like I was starving or missing out. And, truthfully, I can't even begin to describe how much of a difference Nutrisystem has made in my life. I had gotten to a point where I never thought it would be possible to be thin again and was beginning to give up hope. Nutrisystem changed my entire way of thinking and taught me that it is possible to eat delicious food and still lose weight!
