I had a lifelong struggle with weight. Actually, the problem wasn't losing the weight. Every diet I tried (and trust me, I feel like I tried them all) helped me lose the weight, but I always gained it back once I had achieved my weight loss goal. I found Nutrisystem shortly after a trip to the beach with a friend and her children. On the first day we were there, I realized I couldn't get out of my lounge chair. The kids were laughing hysterically and saying I looked like a beached whale. I was mortified. About a month later, I saw an ad for Nutrisystem and decided I might as well try it. Much to my surprise, I discovered that Nutrisystem has a plan for people with type 2 diabetes. That, plus the convenience, sold me on the program. So I took the plunge and began my Nutrisystem journey to good health.
"Nutrisystem gave me the tools I needed to lose weight successfully and to help me keep it off."
After I finished my first day of eating Nutrisystem foods, I knew I had made the right decision. Nutrisystem was the perfect program for me—the food filled me up, and it tasted good. I also got dessert! I saw immediate results and that was the motivation I needed to continue my weight loss journey. Nutrisystem teaches you the skills you need to know in order to eat healthy. They also provide a wonderful support system on their website. There are counselors you can speak with about your program, dietitians, success stories to motivate you, and Discussion Boards where you can find support 24/7. Those boards saved me more than once from overeating. I always tell people you can't type and eat at the same time.
"I am more confident in myself, have more energy and a better attitude."
I have lost a total of 109 lbs.* on Nutrisystem. It took me more than two years to lose the weight. To say I ran into a few roadblocks along the way is an understatement, but I never gave up my dream of reaching my goal. I began my Nutrisystem journey wearing a tight 24W, and now I wear a 2 or 4 petite* and love to shop for clothes. My doctor is also pleased with the progress I've made. Nutrisystem provided me the tools and the support system that helped me change a lifetime of yo-yo dieting into a new healthy lifestyle. I am more confident in myself, have more energy and a better attitude. My advice to anyone wavering about whether to join Nutrisystem is this: "Just do it." It will be one of the best things you'll ever do for yourself. I can't thank Nutrisystem enough; they have given me back my life.
