As you look for more weight loss inspiration, we have three more stories to share with you:
Weight Loss Inspiration #1: Michelle Rhoads Lost 40 Pounds*
For Michelle Rhoads, a photo with Santa was the weight loss inspiration she needed to begin her journey with Nutrisystem. She says that upon seeing that she “looked bigger than him,” she knew something had to change. After losing five pounds in the first week, she was psyched—and ready to keep going.** One of her proudest moments was fitting into a little black dress—and realizing she can do anything she puts her mind to. Today, that even includes running marathons! Michelle says that she has more energy and is overall a happier person—which in turn has made her a better mom and wife.
Michelle’s success and overall satisfaction with the results has also served as the weight loss inspiration for her husband, Mike, who joined the program and lost 42 pounds. Michelle also has two children and says that they are her biggest motivation to stay healthy for the long-term.
Weight Loss Inspiration #2: Krissy Frye Lost 36 Pounds*
Krissy Frye is a great example of what weight loss can do not only for your self-esteem but also for your overall health. As someone with Type 1 Diabetes, it was a big deal when Krissy lost weight as her healthier eating also improved her blood sugar. Upon dropping the pounds, Krissy says that her endocrinologist was thrilled with her A1C blood sugar numbers.
What’s also inspiring about Krissy’s story is the time of year in which she began the program—the week before Thanksgiving. But Krissy says that starting the program and learning more about what healthy portions look like helped her make smart food choices throughout the entire holiday season. Despite the temptations of holiday foods, in the first week alone, Krissy lost seven pounds.** That should be a great source of weight loss inspiration for anyone starting the program—at any time of year.
Weight Loss Inspiration #3: Laura Avon Lost 30 Pounds*
For Laura Avon, the inspiration she needed to lose weight came from simply walking by a mirror. She caught a glimpse of herself and says she decided it was “time to do something.” After losing five pounds during the first week of Fast 5, Laura says that was all the motivation she needed to “keep going.”**
Today, the busy mother of two boys says she has so much more energy and wakes up each day “feeling great.”
“Nutrisystem has given me my confidence back,” Laura says. “It taught me how to eat properly and respect my body and what I feed it.”
Laura adds that the entire experience was easier than she could have imagined. She tells others looking for weight loss inspiration that “if you follow the plan, it will work!”
It’s as simple as that.
