It’s hard to believe we are in the final weeks of 2012. The last month since arriving at Nutrisystem as the new CEO has been a whirlwind of activity as I have wrapped myself in the company, the culture and most importantly, understanding our customers’ needs.
What drew me to Nutrisystem was the promise of the product - we are in the business of helping people achieve their goals and dreams. And those dreams are vitally important - after all, losing weight isn’t just about fitting into a smaller pant size (although that’s a great outcome!), it’s about taking control of your life and your health.
I’m heartened and moved by the stories posted in our community — the very personal stories and images you graciously share about what motivated you to lose weight and the uplifting outcomes you’ve achieved.
Some of you had no energy to move, let alone run, and are now competing in 10K races and marathons. Others suffered from low self esteem and now feel accomplished and vibrant. Some of you write about losing weight with a spouse and how that has helped not only you but also helped your marriage. Many of you are participating in the program as a family and in doing so helping your children to establish eating habits and a healthy relationship with food that will last a lifetime. There are even doctors who tell us they’ve tried our program and now recommend it to their patients.
I feel as though I am on a journey with the Nutrisystem community … cheering you on … and ensuring that the company supporting your weight loss continues to innovate and deliver great products to keep you on a successful path.
Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year.
