Success Stories - Individual Spotlight
Marie B. lost 169.0 lbs.*
"I may have lost 169 pounds* on my weight loss journey, but I have gained self-control, self-respect, and self-esteem."
"I tried many diets and had yo-yo successes on each one. I always ended up heavier than when I started."
I spent the summer of 2008 in extreme pain—specifically, back pain and referred pain in my legs. My best friends at the time were seven prescriptions and my heating pad. After an MRI, my neurosurgeon told me that I needed to have surgery to repair the lower two discs in my back. Unfortunately, he also told me that I was too overweight for back surgery, and that I'd have to lose 50 to 100 pounds first. I knew I had to make my health my top priority.
"I wasn't disappointed; the Nutrisystem® food is excellent! I have never once felt the urge to stray from the program."
This time, there was no question about which program I would select to guide me through my weight loss. In addition to hearing Marie Osmond's endorsement, I went online and researched the program and found that Nutrisystem was just what I needed—I could do this! My weight was a very unhealthy 338 pounds when I opened my box of Nutrisystem food—and now I'm down a total of 169 lbs.* That's half the size I was!
"Thanks to Nutrisystem, my new, long-awaited life journey has begun."
Thanks to my weight loss, my quality of life has improved immensely. I now walk without pain. I love my healthy lifestyle! This would not have been possible without my amazing weight loss through Nutrisystem. I have set new goals to accomplish—goals that would have been impossible without my weight loss and my new outlook on life. Thank you, Nutrisystem, from me, my family and my friends, for giving me my life back.
