    Hey Guys - Just thought I would write a quick post. I am having a blast dating this man I met. He lives in Maryland and buying a home in Texas... So sort of a traveler. He is 62 (I'm 55) and he is retired and we met here in Florida - and he asked me for Date #1 (weekend in Austin and San Antonio... and Date 2 Thursday - Monday in Playa Del Carmen. SO grateful to have the weight off for these summer trips - bathing suits and the like. I just go do stuff and love to look good - and when I don't (extra skin crepy skin, wrinkles) I don't obsess. Easy to do when you are thinner - hard to be ok with that and extra weigh running around in a suit. For me anyway. So, we flew down together form Ft Lauderdale and then had a ride to the hotel - checked in and hit the beach... The resort was very nice - we had a gorgeous master bedroom, guest room (me) 2 bathrooms, kitchen, liv room, jacuzzi... and for the last 2 days we had a spectacular view of the ocean. Next day I awake at like 4:30 and get dressed for snorkeling. We were going to meet a private guide at 7:10 and I did not realize what time it was. So there I was already at like 5:15 am. whoops. I woke Greg up and said c'mon. He thought I was adorable.... Anyhoo.. eventually we went to meet Eddie. Well, somehow we screwed that up - and did not book Eddie. So we schedule him for Sunday and decided on Plan B. We went running like 5 miles.. explored a nearby local beach and then went back to the pool. Had amazing Shrimp ceviche and fattening banana chips with Green tomatillo sauce (and drinks - ill spare you the details). That night we went to 5th Ave - lots of local shops, fun music, performers. We had a drink at a great spot and then dinner at an Italian place. Then music at the bar. What an amazing day. Next day, we went on a Catamaran trip with snorkeling, drinking, lunch etc. Phenomenal. Then the pool for the rest of the day (back to shrimp ceviche.. Yum!!). That night we went to a restaurant that was amazing!!!! At least atmosphere was unbelievably special and the food was good... not as good as say the to NY Chefs..but good.. and pretty.

    I have had ups and I have had downs since starting this program, but it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. Comparing who I am today with who I was just a year ago, is completely shocking. I have a whole new perspective on life, and I feel like I have been given another chance. An opportunity to lengthen my life, strengthen my marriage and just be truly happy with who I am. Today marks day 402 since joining Jenny and I am down 146.4 pounds, that is more than I currently weigh! When I started this program it was a dream to lose half of myself, and I have done that and so much more. I currently weigh 132 pounds and have a healthy BMI, something that I have never been able to say, as I have been overweight my entire life. I reached my Jenny goal at 137, but I wanted to get to 130 on my own, showing others that Jenny Craig also taught me how to eat, what I needed to do to be successful. I wanted to prove that I could lose the 7 pounds on my own, using everything that I have learned while on program, and guess what! I'm doing it! Anytime that I had a gain, it was a result of a choice that I made. I feel like my blogs always turn into Jenny commercials (not my intent) I am just so excited about my life now, in ways that I never thought that I could be. From a 20 to a 4 pant size, from a 3x to a women's medium, from a 10.5 ring size to a 6 (knuckles won't let me go smaller). Just too many to mention. Recently, I have read a lot of negative things, whether it be about Jenny, weight loss, or just in general. I am choosing to talk about the good things, and be thankful for all that I have. Even if you are having a bad day today, tell me three good things that have happened this week, today, heck even this month. Let's not let the bad derail our focus and determination, we've got this! My good things: 1. I have a wonderful support team: My family, these forums, my Jenny consultant, and my friends always there to lift me when I am down. 2. One of my leads comforted me, and told me that she needed me. 3. I am a officially a senior in college and this time next year I will have a bachelor's in HR Management with a minor in Logistics Management. I will be the first member of my family to attend and graduate from college! 4. I have been smoke-free since 12-24-16 What are yours?

    I feel scared that this won't work. I am 47 . What if it is too late? What if my metabolism has slowed down too much? I cannot believe how horrible it feels to gain weight back. I feel repulsed and depressed. I am not hideous, and for that I am glad. I just hate the thick layer of fat around my waist and hips. Can a person really lose weight eating processed food? Can I?

    As a specialty retail boutique manager, I am in the public eye every day. And as fashion is the great passion of my life, I know how to dress women of every size and shape to make them look their best. That definitely includes myself. However, that skill can be dangerous. A little over 3 months ago, I hit my heaviest weight ever -- over 230 pounds. I had tried every weight loss program known to man, stopping short of diet pills or surgery. Just not into that. Nothing stuck, and I had pretty much given up. I pretended to be happy, but I wasn't. I covered my excess weight by camouflaging it with fashion. As a result, nobody seemed to notice my hugeness. But I knew. So what changed? Why am I writing a blog on this Jenny Craig website? Well, how about 30 pounds and 20 inches gone in less than four months? That's right, baby! I'm a Jenny Craig believer! There is so much I want to share about my journey, which has just begun. And I can't wait to hear other successes!
