    My son had is yearly physical on Tuesday and I had to share the results! From his charts he went from 133 pounds to 109 (still a little high for his height and age) but we are still working on it. He is currently at 56.7 inches tall and the doctor expects to see a growth spurt soon. She said that he looks great compared to where he was last year! She started to tell us about proper portions of fruits and veggies and I was proudly able to tell her that he eats 3-4 servings of fruit per day as well as 2-3 servings of veggies per day. BAM! While I have lost 94.4 pounds and my husband has lost 63 pounds, my son's 24 pound loss is what makes me happiest. His loss shows me that I will be successful on the maintenance program and that I can do this. It also shows me that my positive changes are making a huge difference, and that is a great accomplishment. Thank you Jenny Craig for everything that you have done for me! I honestly believe that you have changed an entire family's life and I am and will always be eternally grateful!

    Sounds awesome! Add a signature with your starting weight, current weight and goal - It helps us know where you are in your journey. I would also carry a 3x5 card around and read it 3x/day -on why you want to lose weight. This program is inspiring. And one way I know I succeeded was by going to JCC every week - good weeks and bad. Just keep doing this... and I am not quitting. So for me it takes action every day to keep the weight off (Or to lose it). So you got this.. Sondus like it may take a while - so just keep reading the response card and showing up each week. I may not have lost it fast (1-2 lbs/week). But I am thin. Highest weight was 246.25 - and highest on Jenny was 207.8. So yes it takes a while - but it is so worth it. And whether I a, on lower calories and losing or more calories and maintaining with more treats or extra food... it's still all the same. Still practicing portion control and for me counting my JC exchanges or in my case calories in MY Fitness Pal. This program works. Here's to an amazing year for you!

    Hi there. I had lost 100+lbs off of my 5’2” frame and my skin was never elastic. I had stretch marks from my even my first small weight gain as a teen. Anyway, one of the reasons I wanted to lose weight was to be more active but saggy excess skin and pancake boobs impeded my ability to be completely free. I started horseback riding and my excess skin looked a hot mess in breeches and sitting in a saddle, never mind my flapping in the wind arm skin. Ugh! Over the past 2 years I’ve had a lower body lift, arm lift and breast lift w augmentation. My only regret is that I waited so long. I love the results. My scars are minimal. My arms are thin and muscular. I wear sleeveless tops and feel sexy. Bra shopping is a blast. My stomach is tight and flat. It’s AWESOME! I chose the best docs for each procedure. There are only a handful of surgeons who specialize in LBL for post major weight loss folks. There are surgeons who perform several a month vs a few a year. I travelled to Houston for the LBL doc. He is fabulous. The breast lift and augmentation is a complicated surgery as the aereola is fully removed and reattached. There can be blood flow issues when reattached , leading to necrotic tissue. Ask your surgeon about that. Do your homework. Realself.com is an excellent resource.

    So it occurred to me that one of my goals for the New year's challenge is to drink 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water a day. I recently listened to a podcast on losing weight and they were saying big huge goals dont really work for weight loss or to make significant changes. So do goals that support the longer term gola. So I guess my goal is to be healthier and reduce bloat and whatever else water does for you..... also 8 glasses a day today does not seem achievable... so thought I would blog my goal here and record my results. OK my esteemed sister told me 1 bottle has 16 ounces of water... 4-5 bottles does seem doable 1) Goal: Drink 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water per day by end of 2018 Mini Goal - Drink minimum of 3 bottles of water Week 1 1/2 - 1/7 Morning - when possible - Drink hot water and lemon with ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) to help internal organs do their thing Drink only 1 glass of coffee at breakfast (can drink more other times of day (COnsider reducing) and drink 2 bottles (32 ounces) of water between breakfast and lunch Drink 1-2 bottles of water between lunch and dinner (32 ounces) Water during workout does not count Day 1 Status: Tuesday : Drank 2 bottles before a late lunch and 1 after lunch total of 48 ounces (Plus 12 or so in my Morning drink that I don't count). See how I do tomorrow...or maybe I should include my hot water with lemon and ACV too? I think I will measure it and include it in my tally.

    When we were there this week I was able to get pictures of his starting and mid point and I wanted to share. I am still waiting on my son's starting and mid point, and I will share them as soon as I get them. This week I lost 1.2 pounds and am now 8.8 pounds from my halfway point. I will have lost 74.4 pounds! I am so excited and cannot wait to be able to post my pictures!

    I vote to keep it long. I like short haircuts, but not on me. I had a few bad experiences, one was my senior year in high school when I was turned away from the mirror and had all my hair chopped off, ugh.....the other, I was much younger and my mom wanted it short and everyone thought I was a boy My hair is naturally curly (straightened in profile pic), if I go to short it just gets fuller and fuller, so I keep it pretty long. When I wear it curly, I wash, condition, leave the conditioner in, add curl cream and scrunch and go....so pretty easy. I do agree you look great either way, but IMHO, you look happier and younger with the long (blonde or highlighted) hair!
