“The end results will be well worth it.”Article posted in: Success Stories - Women
Prior to starting Nutrisystem, Felicia Matthews was worried that her weight and existing health issues would put her at risk for developing a chronic disease. She feared that as she got older, it would only become harder to get in shape and try to live healthy. Felicia felt as though the clock was ticking, and it was time for her to make the change and live healthy before it became too late.
After researching her weight loss program options, she decided that Nutrisystem was the best fit for her. Felicia says the home delivery program was a big factor in that decision.
In nine months, Felicia lost 50 pounds.* Then, she spent the next four months doing a combination of Nutrisystem food and her own cooking or dining out. During that time, she lost another 23 pounds!*
Looking back, Felicia says her favorite Nutrisystem memory was opening the box of food for the first time and seeing just how much was in there—certainly more than she would have imagined. Her favorite breakfast is the Blueberry Muffin, her favorite lunches are some of the wraps or melts, and her favorite dinner is the Lasagna. And, she enjoys the Nutrisystem Chocolate Chip Cookies for a treat. Felicia was surprised how much she could eat—and how well she could eat—while still losing weight.
Now that she is 73 pounds lighter*, Felicia’s blood pressure is back to normal range. And she says that she plans to cross skydiving off her bucket list in the future. There was a weight limit for a tandem dive that she could not previously meet.
Her best advice to someone who is considering the program is that it “can’t hurt.”
“You can only improve your health, so why not give it a try,” she says. “I know it’s hard to give up fattening foods, but the end results will be well worth it.”
