“You can’t live the life of your dreams if you’re fighting your weight all of the time.”
Nutrisystem was Laura’s 50th birthday present to herself.
“I went on the program right before my 49th birthday,” she says. “I know I couldn’t go into my 50th year feeling unhealthy. I wanted to live life to the fullest.”
Though she is a busy and successful businesswoman, Laura certainly wasn’t living the life she’d envisioned. Laura’s weight—at her highest, she tipped the scales at 250 pounds—had robbed her of her confidence and, her doctor warned, was also now threatening her health.
“He told me that with my family history of diabetes, I had to lose weight. He rattled off several ways, all of which I had tried and failed.” And just when she thought she’d exhausted every outlet—she tried Nutrisystem, and her life started to fall into place.
For a busy woman, Nutrisystem was perfect. “From the start, I couldn’t believe how easy it was,” she says. “The pounds just started falling off. The best part was that it didn’t feel like I was dieting at all. It was way too easy!”
She lost 50 pounds and a whopping 8.5 inches off her waist.* “If you can’t visualize what that looks like, take a standard piece of typing paper and look at the short side: It’s exactly 8.5 inches,” she says. “That came off my waist!”
What she gained was joy and confidence. “Buying beautiful new clothes has been a joy, and I felt so good about how I looked that I entered the Mrs. Massachusetts pageant—evening gown, interview and swimsuit competition,” she says. “I was the oldest contestant, but I didn’t care. I knew I wasn’t where I wanted to be with my fitness goals, but I thought I’d been putting off this dream for so long that I couldn’t wait any longer. I came in third runner up! Me! At 50!”
“This is what Nutrisystem does for you: It gives you back your true self,”
And that feeling of being too far off track to ever get back on? It’s a distant memory. “You can’t live the life of your dreams if you’re fighting your weight all of the time. Nutrisystem can help you get it back.”
