Ready for Maintenance Mode? She Tried Nutrisystem Success & Here’s How it WentArticle posted in: Success Stories - Women
When it comes to losing weight, there are always going to be highs and lows along the journey. It’s normal to hit a plateau or to feel discouraged from time to time. But, for those who have worked hard to lose the weight—only to gain it back—those lows can be incredibly discouraging. In fact, it isn’t always easy to maintain weight and those lows can feel hard to bounce back from. It can be challenging to regain that motivation when it feels as though you’ve fallen so far off track.
That was the case for Morgan Root, who found herself hitting a low more than once in her life. Having served in the U.S. Army, it was particularly frustrating for Morgan, since she had previously made fitness a top priority. Her weight gain happened once she got out of the service. As her wedding day approached, Morgan was determined to look her best and used Nutrisystem to shed the pounds. The goal she set: To get back to her “fighting weight.” Like so many that have used Nutrisystem, Morgan was successful with her weight loss and looked fantastic on her wedding day.
Fast forward several years and Root is now a mom to two spirited kids—Mason, age four, and Georgia, age two. By the time Georgia was born, Morgan had been off the program and fallen into old habits, ultimately gaining back even more weight than she originally lost. Upset by the weight gain, Morgan admits that her “can do” spirit took quite a hit.
But, instead of wallowing in that low place for too long, Morgan picked herself up and turned to the program that had given her so much success the first time. With Nutrisystem (click here for her favorite Nutrisystem chocolate treat!), she dropped the 105 pounds* she had gained and got herself back on track. And now, with Nutrisystem Success, Morgan has found the help she needs as she works on maintaining
that weight loss. After all, Morgan’s biggest fear was that she would fall back into her old ways. Having hit a low point twice before, she didn’t want to end up back there again.
“To be honest, I was scared to start flexing meals,” Morgan admits of making the transition to Success.“Nutrisystem had given me a structure that I had grown used to and I was afraid that, if left to my own to make decisions, I would fall into old habits. But, the Nutrisystem Success program helped me make the transition with the structure I needed.”
Morgan says it was the color-coded containers available through Success that have helped her the most with the transition. Utilizing perfectly portioned containers takes all the guesswork out of meal prep each day. And, as someone who loves being organized, Morgan says that the containers helped her plan her days in a way that set her up for success. She particularly loved that she could now visualize exactly what a proper portion looked like, helping her learn lifelong healthy habits to ensure she’ll never hit that low point again.
“The Success program has given me control over my food choices during this transition, while also giving me the structure I needed to be successful,” Morgan explains. “It’s given me confidence in my ability to make the right decisions and maintain my healthy eating habits.”
