Looking Back at Week One

Today is day 7 on Rapid Results for me. I made it through week one! So much to learn. I'm so thankful everybody on this site is so nice and helpful! My consultant is so knowledgable as well.

This week I learned that you must not mix and match meals on each day, but you can change the order of days. And also tricks to keep the 12 hour replenish time rule.

A little bit about me, I'm 55 years old, happily married, and step mother to 4 children total, two with my hubby. Ages 31-26-18 and now 17. Our 18 year old is off in the Navy, and he has been chosen to be in the Ceremonial Guard, in D.C. for two years! So proud of him! We could watch him on the computer today, marching in a parade. Our just turned 17 year old is a junior in high school. She is very sensitive, and very talented! She likes to play soccer, lacrosse, and run track, and is a good student. However, she reminds me of the saying, "still waters run deep". She is a mystery, at times!

My hubby is supportive of the JC program, so its going well. I don't think I would have lasted, if he wasn't!

I have some good habits developing so far. Of course, the not eating after 8 p.m. is first. Also, no cream and sugar in my tea. Drinking my water, and getting back into exercise. And of course, no night snacking'! That is the hardest!

I do work outside of the home, and am slowly building my own practice as a psych NP. This is a real challenge! If you make it, or you don't, its all on you! I'm kind of an introvert, so having to put myself out there can be tough. Also, learning to run a business and be organized, can be overwhelming. Many days, I doubt myself. Taking care of my patients is the best part. <3 I love when I feel that "click" with the patient. This is the biggest challenge I have going on right now!

The best part of the week was losing 6.8 pounds!!!!

I did not think I would lose that much :)

My goal is to lose about 50 pounds, I'll see how I feel when I get closer. I'm older, so want to see how my skin looks, lol.

My favorite foods so far: the Cheeseburger, cinnamon rolls, mac and cheese, and chicken fettucini. and any sweet dessert, lol. I didn't like the chicken pot pie!

Well, thats a little bit about my week, and about me!

Thanks, everybody, for making me feel so welcome..........

Fantastic Janette!  I am on day 6 and so far, so good!  I was concerned in regards to how I would handle the weekend bc the weekend is a hot button for me as my husband and I "Celebrate" with food and cocktails, but I was determined to change my attitude.  All went well.  Unlike you, I need to "up" my water consumption, for sure!  Baby steps.

Have a great week ahead!

@Janette256 Thank you for sharing your life with us. Congrats on the kid in the Ceremonial Guard!!! And congrats for starting JC. I think it will be so empowering for you as you work with patients to share with them how you conquered a 50 lb weight loss and exercise journey. So that will happen soon. I Know you said the business end is tough - I imagine getting clients is tough. But as a counselor once told me - who am I to deny the world my gift? So in your case - go get the clients and share with them everything you have to share. 

 

Anyway, keep up the great work...

Gretchen, How did your weekend go?

We can be the same kind of celebraters, lol. It was actually restful to do not much of anything this weekend. We walked together twice.

Congrats on getting now to day 7! I hope you have a wonderful week :)

@missbumble, thanks for the encouragement! I am getting a few new clients every week, but you are right. I'm at the point where I want to pick up the pace a bit, and that will entail going out to doctors offices, introducing myself and leaving cards, and such. :unsure:

I have enjoyed reading your posts and your journey has been an inspirational one. 

You help us all to know, it IS possible......

This community is my favorite part of the program.  Finding out there is so much more to learn about myself than just about food.  It is good to know I am not alone. It is a meal by meal process.   Today is all about water intake.  More that is. LOL. Enjoy your day.
