Nutrisystem Ushers in 2012 by Celebrating Success Story Losing 123 Pounds

Fort Washington, PA  (All News Wire)  Nutrisystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRI), the leading home delivery weight loss program is proud to announce and applaud success story, Crystal Evans, for losing 123 pounds on the Nutrisystem® program  and for being selected to grace the cover of PEOPLE Magazine’s annual iconic “Half Their Size” Issue earlier this month. In addition, Ms. Evans, the 28 year old mother of two from Washington State, also appeared on “The Today Show,” to share her weight loss success story in hope of inspiring others to get healthy.

Evans, who is 5’1”, shares with PEOPLE how pregnancy complications with both her children caused her severe weight gain peaking at 240 pounds, which ultimately led to self-doubt and a fear of going out in public. This wasn’t the life she wanted for herself or for her family and knew that she had to make a change.

“I tried everything I knew after my daughter’s birth to lose the weight I gained, but nothing seemed to work until I found Nutrisystem,” explains Evans. “Nutrisystem helped me become the mother I always wanted to be. I am more confident now than ever before not just because I love how I look and feel, but also because I am proud of what I have accomplished.”

“The success of our members, such as Crystal, inspire us at Nutrisystem every day and is living proof that losing weight can have a positive impact on a very personal basis and inspire others to make a change,” said Joe Redling, Chairman and CEO of Nutrisystem. “We are so proud of Crystal for representing Nutrisystem in PEOPLE’s “Half Their Size” Issue and want to applaud her for her bravery in sharing her inspirational story and photos with the world.”

“I was honored and excited to be featured on the cover and appear on national TV. The best part was having people come up to me after they’d seen the story to let me know how my journey inspired them to finally make healthy changes,” added Crystal who plans to continue on with Nutrisystem’s maintenance program.

In addition to Crystal being featured in PEOPLE Magazine and on “The Today Show”, Nutrisystem also celebrated the New Year with the introduction of SUCCESS, the Company’s most complete and comprehensive weight loss program to date and its most substantial reformulation in years.
