"The investment I made in Nutrisystem has paid back amazing dividends in my quality of life."
"I was in complete denial that I was obese."
My challenges with weight control and poor eating habits started in my pre-teen years—and they didn’t get any easier when I joined the military. As soon as I completed training and started service, I was given more latitude and the weight jumped back up. I had attempted extremely low-carbohydrate diets, crash diets and fasting, with no lasting results. I finally came to the realization that I needed to do something since I intended to enjoy life with family and friends for many years to come.
"Nutrisystem helped me take the first step in defeating my struggle with obesity."
I was impressed with the structure that Nutrisystem offered—and my sweet tooth was appeased with the daily snack and dessert that are included as part of the selections. In addition, the ease of pulling an entrée off the shelf, popping it in the microwave and enjoying the variety of great-tasting food was another aspect of the program I enjoyed. I was skeptical that eating so often could allow me to lose any of the weight; but to my surprise, the weight started coming off almost immediately.
"I am looking forward to a longer, healthier and more productive life!"
After hitting my goal, I have a level of self-confidence that has improved my ability to do the things I enjoy most in life. I also have a new job with a company that I enjoy working for, and thanks to my weight loss, I have confidence that I will have my best shot at upward mobility. I have one recommendation to fellow veterans who, like me, are faced with the unwanted weight gain that so often accompanies the transition: give Nutrisystem a try. You won’t regret it.
