“I had had enough. I was tired of being overweight.”
When it comes to losing weight, success really starts the day you commit to changing. For Melissa, that tipping point came when she weighed 51 pounds more than she does today*.
“I had had enough. I was tired of being overweight. I was tired of the aches and pains.
I was tired of not having any energy. I wanted my confidence level back,” she recalls. “
I had gotten to the point where I almost gave up on myself and thought that gaining weight was just part of getting older.”
“It’s so easy to fit Nutrisystem into my busy life.”
“I was so excited the day that it showed up,” she says. “It was like Christmas opening all the foods that they sent.”
Within a week, she’d lost eight pounds and an inch from her waist. With new favorite foods like the Double Chocolate Muffin and Nutrisystem’s Three-Cheese Chicken, Melissa says losing weight became easier than she ever expected.
“There are snacks and desserts on the program to satisfy any craving. I never felt like I was missing anything,” she says. “It’s so easy to fit Nutrisystem into my busy life. There are bars, muffins, snacks and other items to take with you on the go.”
And when things didn’t feel so easy, Melissa had support—both from her husband, who did the program with her, and from Nutrisystem’s weight loss counselors, who were always available via phone to help. “They’re available to answer questions and motivate you,” she says. So when you hit a plateau, you can keep going. “Your weight loss may slow down from time to time, but Nutrisystem works.”
It also worked for her wallet. Melissa says it actually saved her money by using Nutrisystem. “I pulled my check register out and added up all the grocery bills, dinners and meals out,” she says. “[Nutrisystem] was actually cheaper in the end.”
