Success Stories - Individual Spotlight
John N. lost 70.0 lbs.*
"I regained my self-confidence and added years back to my life."
"I was ashamed of what I had let my body become."
At the age of 40, I found myself an overweight, out-of-shape, 18-year smoker who lacked the energy to do little more than flop on the couch. Years of careless eating, late night snacking, and an almost total lack of exercise had finally caught up with me. Until one day my wife showed me a picture of myself at the lake with our two dogs. I was appalled; I looked fat, bloated, and just plain unhealthy. It was in that moment that I decided that I wanted to make a change in my life. I wanted to lose weight, look better, quit smoking and finally get healthy. I needed a system that was easy to follow, affordable, satisfying, and, most of all, proven effective. I have found Nutrisystem to be all of those things
"I am 'living' again and it feels wonderful!"
Originally, my goal was to lose 30 lbs., but my results with Nutrisystem were so remarkable that I not only reached my goal, but surpassed it to lose a total of 70 lbs.* Nutrisystem was extremely easy to follow and stick to, and it allowed me to focus my attention and energy not on counting points or calories, but on the things that really matter, like my wife and family. And as the weight started to come off I felt my energy levels increase, which resulted in my being able to start exercising again. Now I walk, jog, hike, rollerblade, golf, swim and play with my dogs more than ever before.
"Nutrisystem works—it's that simple!"
The combination of a nutritionally healthy and balanced Nutrisystem plan plus daily exercise has allowed me to reclaim my health. I look better, I feel great, and my family, friends, and co-workers have been astonished by the incredible transformation I have made. I truly feel like I am in the very best shape of my life! But more important than just losing the weight is what I gained from this experience. I gained an understanding of proper nutrition; I learned how to eat smart, what portion control means, the right way to snack, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. And, most importantly, I regained my self-confidence and added years back to my life.
