- Jeanette M.Lost 31 Pounds* on Nutrisystem.“For me, being on Nutrisystem was a life-changing experience.”
“It seemed like the more weight I gained, the worse I felt about myself.”
Until the birth of my fourth child, I had always been thin and was known for it. Being overweight really affected my self-esteem. It also affected my relationship with my husband, because I didn’t feel beautiful anymore. I tried to give it my all at my job, with my kids, my friends and my family, but, secretly, I felt very isolated and sad. I was at the point where I needed a lifeline, and that lifeline turned out to be Nutrisystem. I’m a very picky eater, so I just wasn’t sure Nutrisystem would work for me. Boy, was I wrong! Being able to order a la carte was a great thing for me, and I couldn’t believe the choices I had. I really loved the food!
- Marianne G.Lost 63 Pounds* on Nutrisystem.“Nutrisystem D helped me change my life!”“After losing weight, I felt great at my daughter’s wedding!”
I first started Nutrisystem right after New Year’s. My daughter was engaged to be married in June and I weighed more than 226 pounds. I had a lot of weight to lose and only a short time in which to do it! Nutrisystem had a diabetic program that seemed easy enough and, thankfully, it was! By April I had lost 40 pounds*! So once we began with the dress fittings for the wedding, I decided to maintain my weight for a short period. My daughter had a lovely wedding and our family had a wonderful day. (And I felt great in my smaller-sized dress!)

“Being overweight made me feel like a failure.”
When I was younger, I was in the military, so I could burn off the calories. Plus, we had very strict weight limits, which was a great motivator. But as I got older, it became much harder to meet those standards. When I was about 30, I started trying to lose weight. I tried every diet known to man: high fat, high fiber, nothing but salads and the “famous” cabbage soup diet. I’d regain weight almost immediately every time. Soon after, my wife and I were on vacation to China. While there, one of our tour guides named Kim put her arm around me and said, “You look like a Happy Buddha.” The rest of the trip, I became known as “Hey, Buddha;” in essence, I became the group mascot. I was humiliated and angry, not at the tour guide but at myself. When we got back to the U.S., it was obvious that I needed to do something.
- Cora M.Lost 42 Pounds* on Nutrisystem.“I am so thankful to Nutrisystem for making me feel great about myself!”
I had just turned 30 and had just had my second child. At the time, my mom and I both found ourselves unhappy with our weight. I’d done Nutrisystem after having my first child in April of 2006, and was successful losing the baby weight. I loved it then, and knew it would work again, so I recruited my mom to join me on Nutrisystem this time around!

“I couldn’t ignore the reality of my weight issues anymore.”
As a medical student, I was working toward my dream of becoming a doctor. But the stress of school was showing, and I soon found myself 50 lbs. heavier and barely able to manage the demand of weekly exams. Never in a million years had I expected to be here: heavy, unhealthy and depressed. While watching TV one night, I learned about Nutrisystem as Marie Osmond, my fellow Utahan, shared her story about losing weight with the program. The food that was flashing on the screen actually looked good: pizza, pasta and dessert. That, and testimonials on the website from people who struggled just like me, were all the encouragement I needed. And now, I’m proud to say that I am 62 lbs. thinner, and I’ve wearing a size 2/4*—I used to be a 16!
