"At age 40, I have truly learned to love myself."
"I got on the scale and could not believe how much I weighed!"
Around 20 years ago, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Over the next several years after the diagnosis, I continued to gain weight, always using PCOS as my crutch by saying, “I can’t help it.” I tried several fad diets along the way but, not surprisingly, none of them worked. I was getting older, had become terribly insecure and just hated myself. I decided I’d try Nutrisystem, just to cross it off the list of diets that didn't work for me.
“Nutrisystem® D® taught me to eat in a proper, healthy way.”
Nutrisystem D worked because it taught me so much about my eating habits. I learned how to make good food choices and to have proper portion sizes. Nutrisystem also taught me about proteins, carbs, calories, and portions—and that they can all be good or bad for your weight, based on your choices. So many fad diets are about what you do right now for immediate results, but they don't teach you what to do to help maintain your weight once you have reached your goal. The difference is, Nutrisystem D does.
"Now, I'm happier than ever."
I will always have PCOS; however, I no longer feel like it controls me. I have proudly re-joined my softball team, and enjoy beating my husband at tennis, outrunning him during our afternoon runs and volunteering at my boys’ school, sports and church activities. And my mom, who was my inspiration for my weight loss, and who has since passed away, told me how proud she was that I was taking control of my weight—and that meant the world to me.
