$10,000 each plus a trip to a Nutrisystem photo shoot in sunny Tampa,
Florida. Their complete stories can be found at Nutrisystem’s The

“We are so proud of everyone who entered the $40,000 NutriStar
Giveaway,” said Keira Krausz, CMO of Nutrisystem. “It was difficult for
us to select just four winners. Losing weight is a journey and all of
our customers, including those who entered this giveaway, show
continuous determination and persistence toward reaching their goals. We
look forward to sharing many of their inspirational stories.”

Ten finalists before and after photos, along with their weight loss
stories, were selected by a panel of judges and placed on the
Nutrisystem Facebook page for voting. The four winners (two male and two
female) were selected from the total points received from social media
voting and the Nutrisystem panel of judges. The following four winners
were selected:

Doug Anderson – Bozeman, Montana
Doug lost 139 pounds.

Being overweight affected nearly everything in Doug’s life. He was
unhappy and did not like being around others because he was disappointed
with himself. After making a large change to his education studies, Doug
was ready for another change and chose Nutrisystem.

“Nutrisystem has had a giant impact on my life. I move better and have
more energy,” said Doug. “It has really changed my outlook. I am so much
happier than I was before. Thanks to Nutrisystem, I have finally made a
good habit out of my diet and it is paying dividends!”

Ron Barker – Gilroy, California
Rob lost 80 pounds.

Ron was at a turning point in his life when he decided to try
Nutrisystem. He lost 30 pounds in the first two months and everyone
could instantly see the difference in him – both physically and
mentally. He knew he finally found a plan that was working for him.

“I made the decision to give Nutrisystem a try. It was the best thing I
ever did,” said Ron. “I love the food and it takes the guesswork out of
meal prep for this busy dad on the go.”

Teresa Bleifus – Wildomar, California
Teresa lost 140 pounds.

Teresa’s turning point came when her son wanted to ride a rollercoaster
and, because of her size, she didn’t fit. She was horrified. That’s when
her son turned to her and said, ‘Mommy, I don’t care about the
rollercoaster. I just want you happy and healthy enough to be with me
all my life.’ She knew in that moment that she needed to make a change.

Now having lost 140 pounds, Teresa said she plans to keep her journey

“My journey is not over yet, nor will it ever be. Nutrisystem is my
support and my plan for life. This time is the last time I will ever
have to lose those same pounds again!”

EmilyBeth Dickinson – Montgomery, Alabama
Emily lost 135

With her sister’s wedding on the horizon, EmilyBeth knew she wanted to
make a positive change. Together, EmilyBeth and her mother tried
Nutrisystem and began quickly seeing success. By her sister’s wedding,
EmilyBeth had dropped 60 pounds, but was determined to keep going.

Now 135 pounds lighter, EmilyBeth said, “I feel like a new person! I am
healthier. I can shop at most clothing stores―and enjoy doing so. I
truly have had a life-changing experience with Nutrisystem.”

Individuals on the Nutrisystem® program can expect to lose 5 pounds in
their first week, for an average of 1-2 pounds per week. EmilyBeth
Dickinson did not use Fast 5.
