If you’ve read any of our weight loss success stories, you already know: Every journey is different. Our customers all have different reasons for gaining the weight, different reasons for turning to Nutrisystem, and  different challenges and victories along the way. But ask any of our success stories to sum their journey up in one word and the theme remains the same: Life-changing.

These folks know first-hand that losing weight isn’t just about looking better in a bathing suit. It’s about taking control of your health so you can be the best version of yourself. So you can be the mother or father, sibling or spouse, friend or coworker you were always meant to be. So that you can call the shots in your own life, instead of letting your physical or emotional limitations dictate every move you make.

No one knows this better than our weight loss success stories. Though some started out just wanting to squeeze back into their skinny jeans and others just wanted to impress an old flame at a high school reunion, not a single one of them came out of this experience without being completely mentally and emotionally transformed as well.

They, more than anyone, know that this is not an easy journey, even with a weight loss plan like Nutrisystem. They know firsthand that it takes a sort of mental strength to take the first step, and a different kind of mental strength to keep moving forward even when it feels like the odds are stacked against them. But it’s often this mental toughness they say they are most proud of. It’s this mental toughness they didn’t know they had inside of them.

And because it’s this mental toughness that can’t be captured in those beautiful before and after photos you’ll find all over our websites and commercials, we think it’s time to start sharing the stories of the unbelievable people who have stuck to their guns and have made their dreams happen. Of course we are proud of their physical transformation. But we are also completely floored by the strength they had to make those transformations happen. And we know you will be, too.
