Just a spectator

Haven't blogged here for a few weeks. Obviously. I am at turns frustrated and ok I got this. Yet that is how it goes isn't it?

It may or may not be true but every blinking time I take on losing the weight eating or exercising....something happens.

Yet Lord willing I have determined to not be fazed and do what I can when I can. I am doing 1200 cal and on my own 

as I won't be able to take up Jenny food for a week or two more. SIGH. I CAN DO THIS. 

So between my own food and my exercising, I am hoping that when I do get back to Jenny I will have done myself



Ah well, nothing I can do about it and what I can do, I am doing all I can.


Heres to my success.

Marvelous Monday!  Yes. I hate that programming about Monday. 

At any rate, its a lovely day out and I got in a mile. I was thinking how irksome 

it is ...don't eat that, can't have this. Or if you do indulge it has to be some

modified, paler, imitation. I don't want to be overweight and I also don't want 

to not enjoy meals. Cause let's be real, more often than not those low cal etc

imitations just don't do it and are overly sweet, sweeter than if you had eaten 

the real thing.

Take sugar, for me, I'll learn to deal with the real thing...rather than all the 

substitutes. I have lived long enough for sweet n low and equal to be proven

worse than and yet they are still on the table. No splenda or any of the others

for me either. This is my blog and my thoughts, not knocking anyone and why 

should I have to qualify my own opinion. No snark just this is my opinion.

Ah well, 



Cause I have to put a title

One of my favorite singers passed this morning, felt like I was kicked in the stomach. Love you Al Jarreau, ah 

you will be missed. 

Woke up feeling okaaaaaay then. Yet gave thanks and glad to see the day the Lord has made. It was lovely

after the storm yesterday. So today I did my own meal and well followed the J Craig format so lose or no...ok. whatever.

Me and my little dude walked for a little over a mile. Then I went out and walked another mile and a half. so perhaps got in

almost 3 miles today.

Just blogged this cause I needed to see that I really did keep to this commitment I made to myself. 



One of those days

Waiting and hoping for rain and wondering.....why am I hungry? It must be part of the process..answered my own question.

That happens often. And yeah, I'm thinking it must be part of the process and adjusting to eating a reasonable amount of

calories and relearning to eat properly(?).

At any rate I came to this blog and have decided that I will do so when I feel I must eat and I know I am not really hungry just

..something...I don't want to use bored because I don't feel that is it. I am wondering though why I want something sweet 

after I have just eaten a meal and, the ways I have programmed myself to sub food for some other things. I am thinking 

when I reach goal weight 1200-1500 will be my caloric limit and no less than 3 days a week for exercise. 

Alright then the eating urge has passed...I think.

Keep it short.

Beautiful day walked my little dude and later kept a promise I made to myself...walked one mile. 1.23 to be exact.

Overall strange day, woke up scratchy throat and mild headache but I had to run out to get my little dude some groceries.

Returned and was restless yet sleepy? I laid across my bed and watched some AcornTV..maybe dozed.

Then thought..get that walk in. Well when I returned I found that restlessness gone and the sleepyness...

So preparing my JC chickenpot pie and veggies and watching Midsomer Murders...have a mild crush on John Nettles. ** don't judge me** smile 


Ladies............Here's to less of us!

Well alright then!

I need to start from over there first. January 2016 had me knowing I needed to restart.....again x?????. I was weighed

and weight was 197...I couldn't believe it and yet I did. I started walking and joined every weight FB place and group ** sparkpeople and the like **

I came across. I was walking a mile and actually I was walking two miles when you counted the return trip. I got up to 5 miles..walking and run/jogging.

I went too fast and would have sore heels that kept me from walking for several days then weeks. I wanted to get back into exercise mode however

at my age,  all the extreme, beastmode and killer routines just weren't for me. Heck, let me be real here....they weren't when I was younger!!! 

For some reason I just couldn't get into it...I think it was because I wanted to be outside and feel that rush when I am walking..feels so good.

I started watching what I was eating. I decided to go to a weight clinic....ok..hold on! I went got weighed and was at 180-something...I had lost some weight! 

However the lady there told me she would NOT give me the usual program but would give me a food list. Pretty much what I was already doing.

Ever been turned away from a weight clinic? lol lol lol. Then and there Jenny Craig popped up...I thought ok, it worked last time and if I could just

'get started' lose 20 to 40 pounds I could do the rest myself.....cost, cost, cost,cost of food. I bit the bullet.

So there I am sitting with a JCC....I told her I didn't want to know how much I weighed...yet I did find out. She asked what my goal weight would be

I said oh, much weight do you want to lose...oh, about 40 pounds....HA! losing that 40 pounds will put me under my goal weight!
oh happy day. 

So I started and completed my first week. 4th day on, I could feel my energy levels rising. I only disliked one food selection, and I got in some

exercise. I went to my JCC today..8-2-2017 and I have lost 3 pounds. No pooh poohing that amount for me!!!  I am JAZZED to meet my second week

and relearn,realigned and think forward NOW on a healthy calorie limit per day, real food portions and amounts to keep me at goal weight. 

Starting my next session of belly dance also!  And no that is NOT me in the photo.....** smile ** 


Here's to less of me!!! 



Week One Thoughts

Yay Me! 


Joined Jenny Craig

Week One completed. My JCC is good. The food interesting and overall tastes well. I was kinda iffy on the shrimp and actually wondered

how it got in there. Having no longer any use for a microwave, I now wrap in foil and put in oven and thanks to the 'Ladies' I now have a

manual cooking guide to follow. GO LADIES!! 

I was getting hungry my 2/3 day but that eased and now if I feel hungry I know it's not because of the change of diet and get water etc.

I didn't really get in the exercise I wanted nor am I tracking my food intake since it was all JC food. So if I eat off plan I will make note.

Ooh..I did buy fudgesicles and ate one. 60 cal. I walked my dude twice for 20-25 min and did 15 min jog in place and body stretches, eww

that was it. Hopefully will get in at least 2-3 full legit exercise times. Ok so right now start 3 days a week would love to do 5 ...will work up 

to that.

The Ladies are all wonderful and honest in their experience to lose weight. It is really nice to have first timers, repeaters, just started, in the middle and 

maintenance all sharing and encouraging and understanding. Helpful much so....with everything concerning the plan.

I was so jazzed to discover that I was under what I thought my beginning weight would be. I even asked my JCC to not tell me, however

I looked at the screen just to verify free membership and saw the start weight. As stated very pleasantly surprised. I had lost a nice bit of

weight on my own and from my walking and jogging, which I had to stop because of heel pain..need shoe support insoles.. and winter/time 

changes. When asked my target weight goal and how many pounds would like to lose ...YAY... they were in sync! Target Goal is 135-140

and to reach that...40 pounds to lose...Jazzed.


Had a rant, can't remember it right now in the face of all the

Weigh in tomorrow. 8 Feb 2017......fingers crossed.
