This is a partnered post with Nutrisystem. All opinions are my own and may differ from yours.
If you have been following the blog for a while you might have remembered a post that I did in November on Work Out Gear that Rocks. Well, in that post I mentioned that I challenged my oldest sister to a weight loss competition and the reward was 200 dollars. Because of life and the unexpected things that occur we had to postpone are competition until January 2nd, luckily for me that was a week before I started the Nutrisytem my way plan. Our competition end date is this Thursday, March 27th, so needless to say I am busting my butt trying to drop the pounds.
But as I continue on my journey to get healthy, I have realized that it is important to have someone there with you to support you along the way. I am very self-motivated because I am big on setting goals and making sure that I achieve them, but overall I am competitive. The competition with my sister has really helped me to be successful with the Nutrisystem my way plan. I can call her up to see how she is doing and if she doing well then it motivates me to push myself harder and not cheat on my diet plan. If she is struggling,I can be her support, or she can be mine. Whether it is a buddy, brother, sister, workmate, or significant other it is important to have someone to take the journey with, to push you when you are slacking, but most of all, someone to be held accountable to. Not only has my sister been a great motivator, but so have all of you. I want to have great results to share with you, so when I read your comments it helps me to keep going. So thank you for the motivation!
This week I dropped another 3 pounds! I am now down to 207 pounds, and one step closer to my goal weight. I will let you know whether or not I beat my sister next week, so tune in for the exciting finale of Nate vs the Evil Older Sister 🙂 Just kidding Jess I love you!

That’s great! I’d like to try Nutrisystem, but I didn’t know that it would work. It sounds like it does, though. Good for you.
Congratulations! What a great family challenge. It is wonderful you can motivate each other.
My husband could prolly use this. He’s always complaining about his “gut”. I shall look into it.
