“I made the choice to start Nutrisystem. My first day will be tomorrow; my birthday is today.” —Tammy S.
2. Playing with the kids
“My son hugged me and thanked me for “being the best mom in the world.” Why? Because he loves the outdoors-—hiking, running, playing— and in his 11 years I’ve never been able to keep up or do much of it with him. Last weekend I went for my first real hike with him and it was amazing! The hug from him meant everything.” —Linnzie P.
