Lose the weight-loss excuses & learn about Nutrisystem #NSNation

Nutrisystem Nation BloggerHello everyone… The other day I was talking to a friend who is a bit overweight. She was going on and on about how she knew she was overweight and that she wished she could lose weight, but that she didn’t have the drive to do it. I love this person and wish her the best, but unless SHE faced herself and stopped the weight-loss excuses to make the decision to change, I know she won’t.

Today, I want to talk to you about that light-bulb moment when you make that decision to get healthy. I am not talking about thinking about it or talking about it in passing, I am talking about that one moment where you either look in the mirror or see a photo of yourself and just come to the realization that something has to change. That moment when you realize those weight-loss excuses need to go away!nutrisystem oh my goodness momentThe photo above was my breaking point. My moment of THIS IS ENOUGH! I really had no idea how big I was and didn’t think anything of it. I knew I needed to lose a bit, but I seemed to find tons of weight-loss excuses:

Um, I just had a baby (six months before.. ha)

I um, don’t have time?..

I have three kids…

I have to cook for eight people, how can I do that and try to lose weight?

I don’t have the money for a gym membership…

Blah, Blah, Blah…

Really, I would come up with every excuse imaginable, then I saw that photo and my whole life changed… I wanted to change. I wanted to get healthy and I KNEW I HAD TO! I started swimming and trying to exercise, but I didn’t know that FOOD was my problem.

This is where Nutrisystem came in and saved me.

Why Nutrisystem works: Nutrisystem does all the work for you. All the meals are measured and prepared and made for you to LOSE weight. They give you all the tools – a grocery list of items to buy… a website where you can get recipes and join chats, and even a counselor who you can call or email for support.

Why I went back to Nutrisystem: Nutrisystem is always available, whether you need a new start or a re-start! Look at me. I lost a lot of weight years ago with Nutrisystem then over time, I put some back on. I tried to lose it on my own, but needed Nutrisystem to kick me back into gear! To remind me what portion control is. What self-control is and how to make the right decisions.

Folks, take my advice, look at your photos. Are you happy with how you look? If you are not, skip the weight-loss excuses and make the decision to change…  and do something about it.

My one month Nutrisystem results:

On one month on Nutrisystem I have lost a total of nineteen pounds and have passed the half-way mark to my goal weight. I have slowed down a bit on my weight loss, losing about two pounds this past week, but that is to be expected. The big thing is that I am still losing.

The moment that I started feeling great:

I went to the store with the kids to do some shopping and I came across this little dress that would be fun on a date night with Hubby… they only had a size large so I decided to give it a try. Just for giggles. I put this little number on and it hugged every inch of me and it looked great. Now, it was a bit too racy for me to buy, but the fact that it fit, was amazing to me. It was my ‘ah, I’m becoming who I want to be’ moment!
