Nutrisystem week #23. Weekly weigh in: Motivation!

I was selected to participate in the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program. I will be receiving free food and weight loss support in exchange for my participation in the #NSNation program.

With any great weight loss plan comes exercise. Problem is, most of us will find an excuse to not get off our ass. Personally, I love being at the gym and you can find me working out anywhere from four to six times a week. Of course, working out and becoming healthier takes a little time away from my two year old. However, in the long term it gives me a boost of confidence and far more energy than sitting on the couch eating potato chips.  

What has been helpful this week?
1.) Reading other blogs about weight loss
2.) Re-posting inspirations photos and quotes via Facebook.
3.) Have a fabulous water bottle that was provided by Nutrisystem to keep track of my daily water intake. Without this I'm not sure if I would be able to accomplish 64+ ounces daily.
4.) Finding friends who share the same goals and love to workout with me.  

Now, to the dreaded weekly weigh in: So far I am holding steady. I did not gain nor did I lose this week. I feel like I'm still putting on more muscle and as most of you know muscle takes up less space than fat. Check out the photo below of a 5 pounds of fat vs. 5 pounds of muscle. Impressive?

 So take the challenge, try Nutrisystem. If it's not for you go ahead and cancel. And don't make any further excuses regarding finding time or having the extra cash to join the gym. Many gyms offer daycare and have a flexible income scale to suit your budget. If the gyms not for you, go for a walk. Or workout inside your own home. Motivation is a must. You either have it or you don't. If you have it -- you will realize how beautiful it is.
