Brenda Venner recently attended her high school reunion with a new level of confidence after losing 65 pounds with the help of Nutrisystem. Prior to her reunion, Brenda went to Classmates and pulled up her old yearbook photos, commenting, "I was instantly drawn back in time where our class was defined by our fashion, music and current events." Brenda goes on to say, "I felt good about myself [at my reunion] because I was wearing the same size as I did in high school."
"Events, such as reunions, often go hand in hand with getting in shape and eating healthy," said Keira Krausz, Chief Marketing Officer of Nutrisystem. "We're pleased to join social media forces with Classmates to help reunion goers get ready for a fun time with old friends."
