Let Freedom Ring

Article posted in: Diet & Nutrition

It’s finally here! Memorial Day marks the official start of the summer season—trips to the beach, barbecue blow-outs, and long weekends from work. But even more so it reminds us to remember those who serve or have served in our military, protecting our country and our freedom. Nutrisystem is here to remind you that it’s also a day to step back and remember what it means to be free, to be able to make our own choices and live the life we choose.

Sometimes it can be hard for us to accept that our wrong choices have led us to lose control of our weight—but it’s never too late to choose to change! Even if you’ve made a few wrong decisions along the way, the important thing to keep in mind is that you have the freedom to change, and you can. You’ve already started by embarking on this weight loss journey, and now all you have to do is continue to make those right choices—you have the power, so use it.

Today, while you’re enjoying the holiday, try to not focus so much on what you can’t eat at the family cookout, or for those of you not at goal, how far you have to go to feel comfortable in a swimsuit. Instead, be thankful for the things you can enjoy: your family, your friends and the freedom you have to make the choice to turn your life around.
