Success Stories - Individual Spotlight
Deirdre D. lost 31.0 lbs.*
"Now, I'm a fun grandmother with a healthy, strong and fit body."
“It seemed like the older I got, the more weight I gained.”
My weight struggle started at age 30 when I quit smoking. I’ve tried many diets; they all had me giving up some food group, eating next to nothing or eating unpleasant food. I’d lose weight, and then gain it all back—plus some. I wanted to enter my 50s fit, strong and healthy—so it was time to take control. I saw a Nutrisystem commercial and thought, “What the heck?” It was very affordable, so I placed my order right away.
“I loved the food—especially the chocolate!”
I loved the variety of food, and that no food group was excluded. I could have muffins, biscuits and gravy, pasta, yummy lunch bars, fruit, pizza, burgers, cake, cookies, popcorn—and still lose weight! I’m happy to say that I have re-learned how to cook and bake using all the lessons I learned from Nutrisystem—and I’ve learned so much about portion control, too. I also have new healthy workout habits—and I feel great!
“Thanks to Nutrisystem, I feel like I’m 29 again!”
I just got back from vacation with my family, and my husband and I had no trouble keeping up with the active little boys. So many other people my age seem to let themselves get old; I say we all age, but we don't have to get old. I love the way I look and feel. I am healthier, stronger and in better shape now as a granny than I was back when I was a mother. Now, I’m confident that I’ll be around a long time for my husband, kids, grandkids and (hopefully) great-grandkids.
