(Fort Washington, PA, Wednesday, September 6, 2017) – How many pairs of jeans are in your closet that you no longer fit into? Whether your kids are already back at school or are about to go back, this might be just the moment for you to get back into one of the hottest trends – denim. Otherwise known as, your favorite jeans. On average, American women say they would have to lose 16.8 pounds in order to fit into their favorite pair of jeans.

Dawn Zier, CEO, Nutrisystem has telling statistics and some insider strategies to getting back in your jeans.

SOUNDBITE #1:

NEARLY TWO THIRDS OF AMERICAN WOMEN OWN JEANS THAT NO LONGER FIT THEM. AND, NEARLY TWO IN FIVE WOMEN SAY THEY STILL LIKE TO KEEP THOSE JEANS IN THEIR CLOSET AS A MOTIVATOR TO LOSE WEIGHT.  BACK TO SCHOOL IS A UNIQUE TIMEFRAME … IT COULD BE JUST THE MOMENT TO FOCUS ON YOURSELF.  SO MANY OF THE WOMEN I SPEAK WITH SAY THAT WANTING TO BE HEALTHY FOR THEIR FAMILIES IS A PRIMARY MOTIVATOR, BUT LIFE GETS IN THE WAY …. THIS POST-SUMMER AND PRE-HOLIDAY TIMEFRAME IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO LOSE THE FIFTEEN, SIXTEEN POUNDS NEEDED TO PULL THOSE FAVORITE JEANS OFF THE SHELF.     

SOUNDBITE #2:

BACK TO SCHOOL TIME IS A GREAT TIME TO RE-SET YOUR HEALTH. WHEN YOU’RE PACKING THE KIDS’ LUNCHES, PACK YOURS AS WELL.  AS SO MANY DIETERS LEARN THE HARD WAY, WINGING IT IS JUST TOO RISKY.  JUST AS KIDS NEED STRUCTURE, SO TOO DOES ANYONE LOOKING TO LOSE WEIGHT.  PREPPING AT NIGHT AND GOING INTO YOUR DAY WITH A GAMEPLAN IS KEY … THOSE JEANS IN THE BACK OF YOUR CLOSET ARE NOT OUT OF REACH.  BUT, YOU NEED A PLAN AND YOU NEED TO GET STARTED …. WITH A SAFE, STRUCTURED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM, YOU COULD BE SLIPPING BACK IN THEM IN A MATTER OF WEEKS OR MONTHS.
