Having been skinny for most of her life, it wasn’t easy for Lisa Dimeo to accept the fact that weight was creeping on. Once she hit her 30s, Lisa says it was obvious her metabolism had slowed down. And before she even knew it, she’d gained more than 50 pounds. Lisa knew it was time to embark on what would become her amazing weight loss journey, but she didn’t know where to start.
After several rounds of tried-and-failed dieting, Lisa knew she needed to find a more effective solution. Once her daughter left the nest and it was just Lisa and her husband at home, she decided to get serious about improving her health. That’s when Lisa turned to Nutrisystem, and what she found was success and a 50-pound weight loss!*
Here’s her amazing weight loss journey:
By Lisa Dimeo
I was always a small size until I reached my 30s. Then, before I knew it, I had gained more than 50 pounds. For 10 years, I suffered with weight gain, acid reflux and sleepless nights. And with diabetes running in my family, I knew I was headed down an unhealthy road. Buying clothes wasn’t fun anymore, and my self-esteem was getting low.
Motivated by the commercials, I decided to give Nutrisystem a shot. I had a small budget and a positive mindset. I saw changes and felt better within the first week! I knew this was the diet for me. I never felt deprived from the foods I like, and I was rarely hungry. I learned to make healthier eating choices and I feel great as a result.
My favorite Nutrisystem memory is losing my first 10 pounds.* Reaching my goal and getting to shop from the small section is another favorite memory.
But most importantly, now I feel healthier and have better self-esteem. I no longer suffer from achy knees. I love shopping for new clothes and can once again enjoy a bathing suit on the beach without covering up. And I feel more confident in my looks. I continue to use Nutrisystem to help maintain my weight loss because—simply put—it works.
*Real Success Story. Weight lost on prior program. Expect to lose an avg 1-2 lbs per week.
