I recently watched Debra's video report on her Nutrisystem journey, and I thought I would post it here for you to get motivated and inspired. Here is Debra in her first month on Nutrisystem.
Debra: Today, I decided to embark on the Nutrisystem diet. Before I actually get started I want to take a photograph of myself in my present shape. Believe me, at 240 pounds I have far more weight on my body than I should have. I have put on 100 pounds and despite hating to take a picture of myself I am going to do so. I am dressed in a bikini, which is an extra large size. By the end of my Nutrisystem diet journey I hope to be able to fit into a medium sized bikini. I expect my journey to take between six and nine months.

My name is Susan, and I am one of the many women who lost weight on Nutrisystem. Before I elaborate on this Nutrisystem review, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a 33-year-old woman. I am married. We do not have any children yet. We do have an adorable lab mix named Samantha that we love and cherish. We live in North Florida near Tallahassee. My husband and I moved up here from Gainesville, FL. The move was quite an adjustment. Since moving nearly eight years ago we now have an hour commute to and from work each day.
Friends and people who read this testimony say that this is one of the most interesting Nutrisystem weight loss stories they have read. Buy let me tell you how it all started and about my Nutrisystem results.
What Led Me to Obesity
We are fairly busy with working full time and the commute. Being busy and working so much led to eating a lot of fast food. We almost always got something from a drive thru on the way home from work. After getting home neither of us really felt like cooking something for dinner. So we took the easy way out and got something that was bad for us instead of preparing a healthy meal. I also ordered a fattening lunch most days too. I would just take the easy way out and not worry about the effects it was having on my weight and health.
When it comes to joining the grand daddy of weight loss programs, people often ask: "How fast will I lose weight on Weight Watchers?" and "how much will I lose on Weight Watchers".

Erica's Journey To Better Health
Erica's Weight Watchers journey began when she came to the startling realization that she could no longer find her clothes size in several of her favorite stores. Gone were the days of buying the clothes and styles she wanted to wear and instead having to settle on styles she didn't care for because they were the only ones that fit. Social activities and fitness took a backseat, since Erica wasn't comfortable trying new things at her size, and as her weight continued to climb, her self-confidence grew more and more dim. With her weight troubles hanging over her day in and day out, Erica knew it was time to get serious, and so she turned to Weight Watchers.
Weight Watchers: Feelings Matter
So, it's after Thanksgiving and if I was the gambling type, I would say that most of you reading this probably feel like a Butterball turkey or the Pillsbury dough boy right now. Am I right? What is it about the holidays that make us go hog wild and abandon our good sense when it comes to healthy eating? With their new promotional campaign, aptly called "Help With The Hard Part", Weight Watchers is taking on the tough battle that billions of people deal with around the holidays, and some on a day-to-day basis, and that is emotional eating.
You've Come A Long Way, Baby
Boy, how times have changed! Many eons ago, when I was fresh out of high school, NutriSystem wasn't as widely known as it is now. People were just beginning to tout it's greatness, which intrigued people like my mom, so one day she decided to load us up on the bandwagon and off we went to the brand new facility located just a few blocks from our home. I remember very vividly walking in that front door, not knowing what to expect, and the first thing I spotted were the various boxes of food prominently displayed on the receptionist's desk. The hamburger in particular caught my attention. (I was amazed you could actually store a hamburger in a box at room temperature).
For the most part, dieters really love the flavor of Nutrisystem foods. They are either fresh frozen or shelf stable (packaged). Even though these packaged entrees do contain some preservatives, the scientists at Nutrisystem have managed to create low glycemic comfort foods that are loaded with nutrients and please the palate. There are a few entrees that get better reviews than most others, so lets have a rundown of what some of those foods are as you begin your journey to weight loss on this unique program.
