Hello there; I'm a first-timer. I'm 32, and after almost 4 years of being 30-40 pounds overweight and my go-it-alone attempts to lose, I finally broke down today and bought Nutri-System. I figure that yes, for a few months I'll be broke, but IM DESPERATE. Ive never been heavier or more unhappy. I hope it's worth it! If anyone has gone thru NS, please let me know!
