You People Rock!

Article posted in: Enter to Win

We here at Nutrisystem are sort of like a Swiss Army Knife: we have a variety of tools and hence are called upon to do a variety of things. And we love that, because variety is the spice of life and one of the keys to keeping the mind sharp. One of our duties entails reading through the entries in Nutrisystem’s NutriStar contest. If you don’t know about NutriStar, you should. If you enter, you could win a share of $40,000 and the chance to star in a Nutrisystem commercial.

But that’s not the main reason Nutrisystem brings up the contest. No, in reading through the hundreds of entries, we’ve been struck by a single and consistent thought: Go You! You people are awesome! Whether it’s a young man who’s lost 20 pounds and feels for the first time in his life like he’s learned how to eat properly, or an older woman who can finally ride roller coasters with her grandchildren, we’re amazed by the grit, tenacity and dedication with which people are losing weight.

Whether you’ve entered the NutriStar contest or not, you should be proud of the fact that you’re part of a community of people who have had the courage to face their fears and start to work toward becoming the people they want to be. A community of people who are becoming empowered to do things they never thought possible and to learn new ways of living that make them happier. A community of people who are becoming better parents, better spouses, better workers, better people. A community of people who are willing to work for what they want, to learn to grow and to share their stories of inspiration.

So yeah: Go You. You’re part of something special. And you should be proud that you had the courage to join.
