Suzan S. lost 72 lbs.*
"I have an important message, especially to women my age: they can add years to their life and zest to their days using the Nutrisystem program."
"I run a bed and breakfast and love to cook, but eating my food had me up to a size 22."
I am 65 years old, and I have dieted unsuccessfully for most of my adult years. I love to cook and grew up with a Southern mother who taught me, by example, that if you love people, you feed them good food. That's what I have done. Eating that good food myself, though, helped me balloon to a size 22. My mother would also say that all the women in our family are shaped like pears—with small tops and big bottoms. Because of that, I really thought it was in my genes to be fat. But after seeing myself in pictures, I couldn't believe just how fat I had become. I was really dissatisfied with myself. I also have type 2 diabetes, so losing weight became a necessity. I decided that I needed to show my children that they had another choice: they did not have to be overweight.
"I joined Nutrisystem because of the convenience and the fact they have a program for people with type 2 diabetes."
I lead an extremely busy life. I simply do not have time to weigh, prepare separate meals, go to weight loss meetings, or count calories, as you have to do with most weight loss systems. It's amazing that on Nutrisystem, you can eat three meals, have snacks, enjoy dessert in the evening and still lose weight. I love the pasta dishes in particular, and the lunch bars are a delicious sweet treat. When I was trying to lose weight on my own, I had eliminated fruit from my diet, because it's high in calories. Now, I can have the fruit I love and still be sticking to my diet.
"I have so much more energy and ease of mobility."
My doctor is really delighted with my 72-pound* weight loss on Nutrisystem® D™. I find it hard to exercise, but I really like the walking video Nutrisystem has. It is not too strenuous, and I have had no trouble doing one or two miles. I have learned portion control, what foods are good for me and how to make wise choices. My family is really proud of me, and the rewards are incredible. I feel so much better now. I can actually get down on the floor without a major production. I feel like a new person and so much younger. Carrying all that weight was really debilitating. Now, thanks to Nutrisystem D, I know I have added years to my life and zest to my days.
