    so tired of going up sizes

    tired of trying to dress nice, then catching my reflection in the mirror and feel repulsed.

    need to get healthy

    ordered 2 weeks to start off.

  3. So the mystery behind my extreme overnight weight-loss is finally solved. Yesterday, my mother came to visit me and when she weighed herself, she was down 10lbs from her usual weight. Yes, my scale is the problem and yes, I guess I haven't reached my goal weight after all because I have 10lbs to go.

     La forme vaginale exige un pénis de grande taille pour convenablement lui apporter le plus de satisfaction et apercevoir la vigueur  de son amant pendant le lien sexuel. Il est éminent de conserver une vie sexuelle épanouie et une partenaire comblée, il reste alors bien temps de rapidement agrandir le pénis vu que cela s'avère le premier handicap à la satisfaction. Cette situation pourrait sembler beaucoup plus sérieuse quand l'individu rate son choix et opte pour un soin qui ne serait pas certifié parmi les scientifiques et testés par plusieurs hommes.


     L'organisme de l'individu endure plusieurs changements au cours de la période d'adolescence, ceux-ci sont le résultat de la production des hormones dans l'organisme, et plus de désordres pourraient se manifester au cours de sa vie.

     

    Certains renversements comme par exemple le changement de la dimension de la verge, la poussée des poils sur plusieurs parties du corps, la survenue des premières érections, seraient l'effet de la sécrétion de l'hormone masculine dans le corps de la personne pendant la puberté. Plusieurs de ces bouleversements sont très associés à la circulation sanguine comme par exemple la dimension du pénis qui se trouve assez reliée à la pression du sang dans les vaisseaux du pénis.

     

    Seulement, le flux du sang ne se révèle jamais similaire à tous les individus, cela alors donne des proportions de verges qui ne sont pas identiques , et cela provoque le mécontentement de quelques hommes.

    I've fallen off the wagon in the past three days since I last saw my JCC. I've eaten like a maniac because I've been having emotional turmoils. I'm supposed to be getting my period next week, and I get these insane cravings and it's like I don't realize what I'm doing until I've finished eating. I'm feeling so bad because I just weighed myself for the fun of it, and it says I have gained SEVEN POUNDS IN THREE DAYS?! It takes me WEEKSSS to lose that amount of weight. I don't know what to do anymore, and I honestly just feel like giving up at this point, how do I get back from that? I've been chastising myself since the first day it happened, but that hasn't stopped me from continuing down this path:unsure:. I'm feeling so sad about it, but that only leads me to continue emotional eating. How do I get back on track? I can't gain back all I've lost, I've worked so hard for it.

    Let me start off by saying I was nervous about my first weigh-in because I had started my cycle and that normally means a 3 lb weight gain!

     

    But I am DOWN !!    Here are my week 1 results vlog

     

    How did your week go?

    It finally happened. I'm not quite sure when, but it did. I don't wear real pants anymore. 

    UGH! I wear leggings, yoga pants, pajama bottoms, lounge wear and every other manner of elastic and draw string bottoms. I have them in every color, every style and design. And they're cute! Sweaters, boots, scarves - I'm great at accessorizing. Making the average legging look pretty jazzed up. But the fact is that I have given up on "real" pants. I can't remember the last time I put on a pair of jeans or the dress slacks that I would normally wear to work. Instead I wear dresses or elastic waist skirts and my comfy leggings. I got tired of the waistband of pants cutting into my skin. Or worse yet rolling down under my belly. Embarrassing and uncomfortable to say the least. Then there was the fear of having my pants split open in the rear. Oh, I would just die! 

    Now, I could buy my jeans and slacks in a larger size but I refuse to do that. It's like accepting that this weight is forever. And I assure you - it is not! But, I can't go on wearing strictly comfy bottoms. I need to lose the weight so I can at least wear the slacks and jeans that I have. All of which are like brand new. I want to be able to button my jeans with out having pain in my abdomen. I want to then bend over to put on shoes with those pants buttoned and still be able to breathe!!!

    Today I am 3.3 pounds closer to that becoming reality. I will continue to work towards my goal. It's a small step but it's the small steps that count.

    Today started strong. It is boss's day on Sunday so my co-workers wanted to take our boss out to eat. I when and took my jenny lunch and ordered a garden salad, no dressing. Later, I was leaving my house for school and my car wouldnt start. I know nothing about cars. My car not working effects my whole life. Getting to work, going to school, going to the gym, going to my jenny appointment in 2 days. If the repair will cost alot (which most car problems do) having the money to pay for the food. Basically in that moment my whole life when up into a spiral of unknown and i just wanted to cave. Order a pizza or walk to taco bell and get comfort food but I when inside my house and still ate my jenny dinner and snack. I dont know whats going to happen at the moment but i can't let a bad day ruin my progress.

    Hi guys,

    I started my first week with Jenny in South Australia. Tomorrow is my first ever weigh in. I am nervous and excited but have had my ups and downs this first week. I suffer from bad insomnia as i am a shift worker and when i don't sleep i sometimes make bad food choices by not eating all day and then having a high calorie dinner. Anyway i tried really hard this week and the one day when i screwed up i got my favourite take away food and i couldnt believe i was actually full from eating half of it, my stomach must of shrunk or something. I am back on track but really stressing i am not going to have a good weigh in as i had a few bad moments over the week. How is everyone else going? oxoxo

    I have very little words to describe how happy I'm to be down 11 pounds. This journey has been difficult, but once I set my mind to do it, it has been very rewarding. Sure it has been hard that I can't go to my favorite cafes and get a tasty pastry and coffee... now I just get the coffee and drink it while I eat a protein bar and walk my baby around the city.

     

    Being pregnant wasn't easy for me, gaining 60 pounds was hard and the hardest part is looking at yourself in the mirror and not recognizing your own face. I can say I feel great about taking control of my life again. Having a three month old baby doesn't leave much time for me, but I feel this, Jenny is what I'm doing for myself and I treasure it.

     

    Life is good,11 pounds down 30 more to go!

    First Weigh In Was TODAY!  I've lost 8lbs so far!  I have a long way to go of course, my very first goal is to get under 300lbs, I am now at 360lbs.  I'm just on Cloud 9.  It's crazy because this is only my first week on JC and I'm already starting to change my whole outlook on food.  It's difficult at first but the results shows that it's completely worth it!  Plus for a diet, I really enjoy the food.  The small portions sometimes drives me crazy, especially on weekends, because weekends are usually when I feel like snacking the most but it's something that I just have to get used to :) It's all about portion control and making smart choices! which was my first lesson of the week.

    When i began Jenny Craig i weighted 297.4. I began this journey with my set goal of 170lbs. Knowing that some day i can reach that goal gives me butterflies.

    during my first official weigh-in I  was 291.3. The shock that came to my eyes that I can accomplish losing that much weigh was unimaginable. Today when i went my weigh only dropped 2 pounds. though it wasnt much, i know i can do better. I set my goal for next week at 5 more pounds off. By being more activity, going on walks, swimming at the public pool nearby, dancing to music, and sitting to my plan i know i can accomplish this. We all have the choice to make a change and its up to us.

    The food is already delicious. I'm making meals an event rather than just a task. Today is Cinnamon Swirl French Toast and strawberries.

  14. Going through renovation is never easy. Especially when it's of your own body. It is so great to see the before and afters of other people. Not so easy when you actually have to live the time between the two pictures yourself. The fact is, I made it through my first week, and had my first weigh in at the center. My scale at home tells me one thing, and the scale at the center tells me another. That is strange, but I understand it is not all that unusual. At home, I hop on the cruel flat truth teller in the morning. My appointment with my consultant was at 6 PM. So I have to account for all the water and food I ingested during the day. In any case, the results were still positive, and I lost weight. According to my scale, 4 pounds, and at the center, 3 pounds.

     

    When you think about it, the fact that different scales can say different things about the same body is actually kinda funny. Or at least curious. It reminded me that we can't really trust the human way of measuring and judging things. Or people, for that matter. Proverbs 16:11 says: "A just balance and scales belong to the LORD; all the weights of the bag are His concern." When God weighs somebody, He is checking their character. And that will be a precise measurement every time. We definitely do not want to be found deficient in His book. In Daniel 5:27, we read about a king who was found deficient in God's scale, because he had defiled the objects that belonged to God's temple, and he had not humbled himself before the Lord (Daniel 5:22-24). This King had brought the cups that belonged to the temple, and used them during a pagan party. If eating and drinking in honor of man made  idols while using God's vessels wasn't enough, that king was also reminded of how he had not worshiped the God in Heaven, and had not come to him in humble adoration.

     

    God takes His temple and all the things pertaining to it very seriously. I want to be found weighing just the right amount in God's scale. As for the unrealible human version, I hope to continue to see decreasing numbers each week. Since my body is His temple, I am sure God cares about both my spiritual and physical weight. As the verse in Proverbs said, He cares for "all the weights of the bag".

    I woke up hungry this morning and that's a good thing.  It made breakfast so pleasurable and delicious...something to be savored and enjoyed, rather than something to wolf down because it's the time of the day to eat.

    I think I have been trying to do too much at once.  I want to lose fat and build muscle.  This not impossible, but for me it is not working.  I always want to workout.  I think what I need to do is concentrate on sticking to the diet.  I always think that I am "smarter" than everyone else.  I think that I know it all. If I do, why am I overweight?

    Book worthy of recommendation...

    One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way
    by Robert Maurer

    Why would I recommend this book? IMHO...

    Robert Maurer has taught me that baby steps have great value.

    For example, to get in the habit of riding my new exercise bike, I have set the following goals that are so simple they almost seem insignificant:

    Day 1: with bike in a comfortable, convenient location, sit on bike for 1 minute while thinking about enjoyable bike rides I have taken in the past. (3/15/16 DONE)
    Day 2: sit on bike to watch TV for 5 minutes (3/16/16 DONE--also pedaled for 20 minutes)

    Day 3: pedal bike for 1 minute, think about a pleasant memory (3/17/16 pedaled for 5 minutes while watching music video by Adele "hello") (3/19/16 Redone this time also thinking about a pleasant memory)

    Day 4: pedal bike for 5 minutes (3/18/16 pedaled for 30 minutes while watching cycling video of my home state)

    Day 5: pedal bike for 5 minutes, stay on bike to watch TV for 5 minutes (3/19/16 pedaled for 30 minutes while watching TED talks; stepped on elliptical for 5 minutes while watching Rick Steve's show on Cinque Terre which reminded me of our recent book club selection "Beautiful Ruins")

    Day 6: sit on bike to read a book for 5 minutes, then pedal bike for 5 minutes (3/21/16 read from "Traveling Incognito" by Sarah Shockley and pedaled for 15 min.)

    Day 7: sit on bike to listen to music for 5 minutes, then pedal bike for 5 minutes

    My initial goals are to establish the habit of being on my exercise bike every day and to associate pleasant thoughts and experiences with being on my exercise bike.


    If you have access to a stationary bike that is going unused, would you like to join me on my journey?

    While I am at it, why not set baby step goals to re-read this book?

    Day 1: find the book again, read the information on the book cover and the table of contents (3/15/16 DONE)

    Day 2: read the first two pages of the preface (3/16/16 DONE--read 7 1/2 pages)

    Day 3: read two more pages, pick out my favorite sentence of what has been read thus far (3/19/16 DONE...back on track)

    Day 4: read three more pages (3/21/16 DONE--read 4 more pages)

    Day 5: read one more page, think about the ideas in the eight pages read so far

    Day 6: read two more pages

    Day 7: read three more pages, ...is there a way that any of this information can be applied to my Jenny Craig journey?


    Until next time...

    DMD Diane

    Help I am on day 2 and I feel soooooo Hungry drinking at least 2 liters of water a day so that's not an option to help

  19. I have been concerned about all the preservatives and additives in JC prepared foods, but love the convenience and taste of many of their products.

    However, I was REALLY surprised to find high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and corn syrup listed as ingredients in some of their products, such as the Mixed Berry Bar.

    I don't know if you're familiar with how high fructose corn syrup is manufactured, but it's not pretty or natural. It involves genetically modified enzymes." involving vats of murky fermenting liquid, fungus and chemical tweaking. See http://www.motherlindas.com/HFCS_murky.htm

    Many researchers believe there is a correlation between consumption of HFCS and obesity levels - see this chart: https://www.diabetesdaily.com/blog/2009/05/chart-obesity-high-fructose-corn-syrup/

    HFCS is sweeter and cheaper than sugar, but can be associated with fatty liver and Type 2 diabetes. Fructose is also more likely to be turned into bad kinds of fat than glucose is. See



    Why not use honey instead?

    Perhaps we should let JC know if we would like them to make a change, and eliminate HFCS from their products.




  20. Hello Jenny my old friend
    I've come to see you once again
    I love my family and I love my life
    But in my weight I have encountered strife
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    It is to go
    to Jenny

    Now I don't have to go alone
    I have support right on my phone
    I read the forums and I check the blog
    And maybe someday I can start to jog
    My hunger pains are more than satisfied
    Don't feel denied
    With all the food
    from Jenny

    Thanks Jenny Craig! B)

  21. Hey - hope everyone reading this had been having some healthy successes during these several weeks.

    I've been watching the Valentine's Challenge, and just joined the Easter Challenge. Adding that accountability will be very motivating for me.

    I've had 3 JC visits to the Center so far, and think I need to change something....

    First visit to Center - drove my Mom in as well, who was reluctant to join the program. The center manager met with us - says she sees clients sometimes and would be happy to meet with my Mom to give her advice and words of encouragement. Very nice lady. Met with both of us during one really busy session and got us both registered, and food ordered. I'll plan to see one of the center's counselors next time, and the manager will continue to meet with my Mom. I met the counselor I was going to see next week, and she seemed really nice - I had an idea for her to try that she liked. We'll be hopefully be able to support each other! We both left very happy and excited about beginning the weight loss journey!

    Second visit to Center - First weigh in - lost 4.5 pounds! :)
    Again I drove my Mom, who met with the manager, and I met with one of the counselors - a really nice lady. We got 2 of my questions answered and my food ordered. Then time was up - felt a little rushed, but will do measurements and get info I requested next time.

    Third visit to Center - Second weigh in - lost another 4 pounds! :)
    Had a hard time this visit - trying very hard to stay positive as I write this.... Good news is that the program is working. Bad part is that as rushed as things seemed last week at the Center, this week was way worse.

    My Mom and I both received our reminder calls the day before and were very surprised that neither of the people we were supposed to meet with were in when we got there. One poor Jenny employee was trying to man the front desk, answer the phones and help the clients who were waiting. Crazy!

    I tried really hard to stay neutral and not give her a hard time, I mean it wasn't her fault that the others weren't in. The manager wasn't there yet and she didn't know when she'd be in, so she brought my Mom back to get her food order. She wanted to do mine next, but I wanted to see my counselor....who was given the day off. Even though they had confirmed my appointment the afternoon before.

    So I went back alone and did my weigh in, and gave the lady my food order. No personal support. No advice this session.

    It took us so long there that the Manager did come in toward the end, to take our credit card payments. She did explain her reason for being late and apologized, but explained that we should just see whoever was there at the Center at the time.

    I don't know if I'm expecting too much. Last time I was on Jenny, I had a great JCC that celebrated my losses with me each week, and knew my story. She was a great cheerleader for me though ups and downs.

    Now, I'm up 2 pounds....grrrrr.....and did a whole weekend off plan. I'm getting back on the horse.

    There's another Center that's the same distance away in the opposite direction. I'm going to go sometime this week and check it out.

    Fingers crossed!

    I have lost significant weight on Jenny 3 times in my 29 years of life.
    When I was 15 I lost 50 pounds.
    When I was 21 I lost 40 lbs
    when I was 26 I lost 25 lbs.

    But here I am again 29 and the back in the 180's. I am recently married and somehow with noticing the weight has just crept back on, and I am pissed. I am pissed that once again all of the hard work and sacrifice of prior jenny experiences have been totally wasted. Why cannot I not seem to grasp and cling to the lessons on food and exercise that Jenny teach me? Why do I make everything but my health and priority in my life? How did I let this happen. Why can't I commit? Why do I let one bad day or one bad meal send me into a spiral of an entire bad week of eating?Am I destined to yo-yo like this my entire life?

    These questions haunt me and discourage me day in and day out. Having a husband that can lose weight by simply stop drinking one coke a day doesn't help.

    In the past committing to and then loosing on Jenny was so easy. But I am struggling to commit now that I live with my husband. I am used to being able to throw out any and everything that didn't fit into Jenny. I have major self control problems and generally love food. Which probably explains why I am back for a 4th time trying to lose 25+ plus. I am struggling with how to maintain self control, as I can't throw out all the food in the house because my husband needs to eat.

    I have never put my thoughts and feelings to paper so maybe this will help me, it sure can't hurt!

    The top ten reasons I need/want to lose this weight:
    1. I deserve to be happy ! Right now the weight and the inability to commit and lose it is making me miserable. I don't feel good amount myself or how I look. I deserve to be happy and enjoy life.
    2. My husband deserves a happy wife.
    3. My co-workers deserve a happy co-worker.
    4. My friends deserve to have the happy and energetic friend back.
    5. Such pretty clothes that are two size too small right now! I have a rocking wardrobe waiting for me.
    6. If I don't loose the weight now ,trying to lose weight after we attempt for kids next year will be ever harder!- don't make things harder for myself.
    7. I am currently .2 away from being obese according to doctor's standards , I can avoid crossing that threshold, but I have to get to work.
    8. I will look better in pictures! I used to love documenting my life, now I avoid camera as much as possible.
    9. The beach! I used to love going to the beach, now it seems like my worst nightmare. I deserve to enjoy the beach again.
    10. Because I don't want my weight to rule my life anymore. It is time for me to take my life back!

    Here is to kicking this weight for GOOD!

    Any encouragement or tips and tricks on self control and recovering from mis-steps would be gladly accepted:)

    Today is a new day, day 1 on my new Jenny Craig life. I want to be a success story! My goals are insight, I want to feel good about myself again. I have support from my husband, friends, and my new Jenny Craig team. I am so excited to see what happens. Praying for guidance and motivation. I can't wait to hear everyone's story. We've got this, staying focused is key.
    Keep Smiling :D
