Cheryl Angelelli – Lost 20 Pounds*

winnerMichigan resident Cheryl is a former athlete and swimmer who became paralyzed after a diving accident at age 14. Not letting her injury slow her down, Cheryl continued to compete and became a medalist in the Paralympic Games, as well as a World Record holder in 2014. After retiring from swimming, she gained 20 pounds and wanted to drop the weight. That is when she turned to Nutrisystem.

“After retirement, the 20 pounds I gained took a toll on my body and made it more difficult to do everyday tasks from a wheelchair. Once I tried Nutrisystem, I fell in love with how easy the program was, not to mention the quick results!”

Mike Enger – Lost 55 Pounds*

With that, he took it upon himself to start the program and was delightfully surprised by the fantastic results he achieved.

Once worried he would never be able to lose weight, Mike said, “I have a new lease on life and am proud of my success thanks to Nutrisystem!”

Kimberly Goude – Lost 115 Pounds*

Cooking the right types of foods was a struggle for Kimberly throughout her life, but with the convenience of Nutrisystem’s meals and snacks being provided for her, her success was inevitable.

“I didn’t just gain the freshman 15 in college. It was more like the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior 15. Once I entered the real world after graduation, I knew I needed to make a change. Thanks to Nutrisystem, I have lost almost half my weight and the best part is, I never needed to worry about cooking as my meals were provided for me!”

Kevin Martin – Lost 74 Pounds*
