Good morning. I am Serena and I first started Nutrisystem when they had physical centers back in the late 80's. I then went to work for them as a nutritionist at one of the centers!
I graduated with my MSW in 2005 and promptly went up to 174 pounds which I never got close to even when pregnant! In 2008 I was back on NS and lost 50 pounds with the help of our hospital life coach and NS. I have been up to 144 and now down to 112 during different job changes since.
I am 67 yrs old, I work full time --at home right now--for the VA of Puget Sound as a supervisor Sr Social worker for the homeless veterans program. I had been ready to retire this month but in April was offered a promotion so I packed up my horses and dogs and house and moved to the west side of the state from my ranch on the Colville Indian Reservation.
Nutrisystem has been my weight loss program of choice since I started it after my 3rd daughter was born. It is now my maintenance program and is also something I can control in this time when the country has gone mad with politics and disease.
I live on a large acreage and we have a huge organic garden that we can eat out of all year round. We buy our meat from local farmers and our grain from organic farms and mill it ourselves. My guy is a cheese and charcuterie chef and also an amateur chef so Nutrisystem is my fall back when he goes toward the high calorie meals.

emoticon Hello, all. I'm Pamela. I first got to goal with Nutrisystem back when they still had physical centers. With minimal support, of course I backslid. I even reached my highest weight ever after losing so well! I found SparkPeople a few years back and have had various success here. Now I'm committed to eating according to the Nutrisystem program again. With support from this team and others on SparkPeople, I'm planning to reach my goal around Easter and KEEP it off this time.

I'm 70+ and live in mid-Missouri. We have 2 living sons; our daughter died in 2017. My primary reason for losing weight is just to feel better and have more stamina. Plus I want to keep on knittin' - and I love being Nana of 10!
