Shari lost 57 pounds in ten months
Her slim-down strategy: "I'd already been hitting the gym pretty hard, but when the scale didn't move, I became desperate. I knew my eating habits needed to change, so I did some research and signed up with Nutrisystem. I began eating five small meals a day. Within a few weeks, I lost several pounds. That motivated me to keep going."
The biggest challenge: "Realizing that I couldn't lose weight on my own."
Best diet tip: "Don't just lose weight for your wedding. Do it because you want to be as healthy as possible for the rest of your life."
In her gown, she felt... "Like a movie star and never more beautiful than at that moment. I was married once before at 28, and I look better now than I did then."
