Nutrisystem’s Chief Marketing Officer, Keira Krausz, touched on how inspiring the contest is and what it means to the company.

For Gina, food had become a primary source of comfort and portion control was an unachievable obstacle. Seeing an unrecognizable picture of herself made Gina realize she needed to make a lifestyle change.

Now, more than 100 pounds less than her starting weight,* Gina is thrilled with her progress and feeling better than ever in her new body. She took the journey one step at a time and reached her goal.

She says, “I called Nutrisystem and took my first step in changing my life two inches at a time. Thank you, Nutrisystem. You truly are my lifesaver!”

Throughout most of her life, Amanda struggled with her weight. She tried every dieting fad in the book throughout her formative years, but found little long-term success.

After seeing herself in a vacation photo, Amanda was shocked at the way she looked, and knew it was time to prioritize her weight loss goals and find a plan that would work for her.

“I knew I needed to lose weight for health reasons, but my approach was always on how can I look better, not feel better,” said Amanda. “Even today, every time I think about giving up, I tell myself that I did not work so hard for the past three years to revert to the sad, overweight, tired person I was in that photo. For the first time in my life, I feel like my outside is starting to reflect the person I am on the inside, and I’m extremely thankful.”

A routine visit to the doctor, where he was called morbidly obese, opened Jonathan’s eyes to the reality that his weight was a problem. Fearing he would end up having a heart attack at a young age like his grandfather, Jonathan decided it was time to take charge of his health. That’s when he ordered Nutrisystem and began his personal weight loss challenge.

“It’s amazing how easy and successful Nutrisystem is, once you make the leap of faith and stick with it. I feel healthier and look healthier, all thanks to Nutrisystem,” said Jonathan.
