Though they were inspired to lose weight for different reasons, Todd and Julie Chrisley have enjoyed losing weight together. For Julie, losing weight has been a long process that began after she went through early menopause as a result of her breast cancer treatment. “I’m a breast cancer survivor and because of that I also went through menopause early,” Julie told People in an interview published on Wednesday. “I felt like the chips were stacked against me and I was gaining weight.”
Julie had previously lost 20 pounds with Nutrisystem, but since teaming up with Todd to become an ambassador for Nutrisystem’s Partner Plan, has lost an additional 10 pounds. After seeing Julie’s success with Nutrisystem, Todd, who had noticed that he had packed on a few pounds during the COVID-19 pandemic, began his own weight loss journey with Nutrisystem. “I am proud to say I’ve always maintained the same weight I was in high school,” Todd told People. “But after having COVID back in March 2020, it was like my metabolism just came to a screeching halt.” Since embarking upon his weight loss journey with his wife, Todd has lost 18 pounds.
Their shared weight loss journey has made the couple even closer. “It has made us closer because it’s something that we talk about,” Julie told the Daily Mail. “And it’s kind of like a competition. … I think Todd and I consider ourselves partners in everything we do. So to be able to incorporate Nutrisystem and be one other thing that we’re partners with, I think is amazing.”
