So here I am, sitting in my study in front of two ten feet over-sized windows. The window's true beauty is not its size, simple oak or oblong bronze hardware all the way from South Africa, it is actually how it captures the sun and pushes it through the pane. For a moment, the ray makes me forget that I've been perched between two internal translucent lingering fixtures in my life: a fear of failing and a dark cloak of anxiety. Before starting the day and setting to write my meal plan down I dec
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.
OK So here's what one of the maintenance posters ChristiS wrote that has me all fired up:
"I like being able to tie my shoes without feeling my belly press up toward my chest. I like all the great clothes I can wear without feeling too "lumpy" in them. I like feeling like I made a decision and took charge of it.
I still love food as much as I ever have. But, Jenny has taught me more isn't necessarily better. All things in moderation. Also, every day I make decisions
So last night my sister (Jennifer), her hubby (Mike) and Mom and I went to see Barbra Streisand at the BBT center. It was amazing - and part of what's special is having my family there as well.
Barbra is 74 - and my Mom is 78 so I remember watching Funny Girl with my mom and dad - and singing the songs. I think I know all or most of the words to Don't Rain on My Parade. So I have never been to a concert with my sister , her hubby and my mom before - so that in itself was special. Well rea
Loving getting the weight off. Yesterday I shopped a bit for fun - and bought these adorable leggings for workout. Who knew??? It is soo much nicer to be in a more mainstream size body then my highest (246.25) or recent starting weight on JC 207.8.
Yippeayecayeaye - 30 pounds to go...and I think I will enjoy the steps along the way
And yup I wear two bras to go jogging... Why cant' they make good fitness bras? Ok I digress.
Today I have decided to go on self weight-maintenace, because I stayed in the low 120s in terms of pounds this past week and this morning I was 120.6lbs. This self-maintenance phase will continue on until around mid-January of next year, in which I will decide what to do next.
So I did it - I found a pretty good before picture and posted n JC. Hard to decide how public I want to be... but you know what? It's not as if anyone who knows me does not know I am\/was heavy.
Anyhow I hope posting the pictures help people.. and helps me to realize I have lost weight. It's slooooow but it is coming off.
OK off to TV and bed so i can get up and do the Workout circuit tomorrow (my easy day) or go for a bike ride....
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 certi
So today I jumped back on the bike... hopped in the outfit (I had a few shirts that fit!! yehaw!! That is no small feat... the cycling shirts run small. Anyway - went riding with the septuagenarians.. they kick butt! I kept up well... wjho knew? I think my workouts are paying off.
15.5 Avg 27 miles.
Going to try and go on a ride during the week if possible with my work schedule and definitely go back to riding next Saturday, It's a nice addition to my weekly activity - an
Even though I am technically considered at my goal weight now, I can't bring myself to fully accept that fact and move on to the maintenance stage. There are still a little less than one month of time before I head home for the holidays, and until then I would still like to see whether my body will show any better changes, whether the number on the scale goes down or not. If I still have the flappy arms and double chin by the time I'm home for the holidays, I will continue to lose weight by my c
So on November 22, 2016, or two days ago, I weighed myself after waking up and bam, the scale read 122lbs. To be honest, I was shocked as **** since only the day before, my scale read 136lbs same time, same routine. I certainly didn't feel skinny either, as I still look like 136lbs in areas like my belly, my arms, and my face. My only explanation is that all of it was probably just water weight. Thus, I don't even know what to do now, although I've stayed 122lbs exactly for the past two days eve
Welll - not much to read to day on the forum so far so thought I would spend a few minutes here. Today at the gym I saw this woman I usually see at the gym on either treadmill or express circuit. She has determination and I was thinking of offering my support (really she'd be supporting me as it is helpful to have people to say hi to at the gym). One day hopefully I will say hello. I joined this gym juts a few months ago because it is about 1 mile from me.
It is never easy to
Sweet.... This is awesome.. I have been here on JC for 13 weeks and lost 27.8 pounds. I thought 2 pounds a week would be too slow. But you know who cares.. I am thrilled!!!
Ok off to design the bathroom I am renovating and visit mom.
Quick post - as I am pretty tired. Just landed after trip to Atlanta for work. No real compliments on the weight loss - But you know I am the one who notices.... I love that I wore the Little Black Pant (the ones advertised on Facebook) and they finally fit (Size 14 -3 which I think means size 14 and a 3 means a pear shape. Anyway wore a cute shirt and these fitted pants and felt great. So nice not feeling the opposite.
Got through cooking class - and had some steak, wedge salad with
K so no exercise.. had keratin treatment yesterday so have to wait til I get it washed out today - dinner with Mom tonight. Going to make Carrots and Low cal dip for appetizer.... and of course Zoodles and Zucchini...
It's not rack of lamb - strange how entertaining changes when on Jenny Craig! Using my fat allowance for dressing our fat free Sour cream tonight instead of at lunch....
I want to resist wine tonight! I bought my moms kind (pinot grigio) not what I like (Sauvignon
So I started this Blog so i would have a place to log my exercise and how I am doing with my JC Challenges. My goal for this challenge is to lose 17 lbs or so and workout 3 times a week cardio and 2-3 times a week with weights. MY feet hurt a lot lately - even at the grocery store... and I don't go down many aisles. So i have been running lately using the Running app. Decided today to do my cardio on the Arc trainer (Cybex). Hard to figure out what would simulate the running portion vs the walki
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 jea
It's the start...and an awakening to how bad it really has been.

This morning my son weighed in on our family fit bit scale and I saw a number I have NEVER seen on my son. It broke my heart. I failed him.
That is all I could think about is how I created this problem for him and it's my job to fix it before it turns to diabetes or worse.
I know people see my obese son and look at me as the "enabler
Just made my first appointment for tomorrow.
My son and I went to the Santa Clarita, CA Jenny Craig center right as they were closing, so we made appointments and grabbed a two menus to view.
My first thoughts.....
WOW..how is there birthday cake on the menu !?! I have sworn off sweets and always tell my son to skip sweets or limit to one every now and then as a splurge. Sweets daily, that will be new.
CONCERNED...is this going to provide enough protein? The bre
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. B
