NEW BEGINNINGS

I see that my last blog post was January of 2017. That means I am coming up on two years since I quit JC and decided to try other options. Just for the record, nothing worked and I got to my highest weight of 316 pounds before I finally sought help from a doctor. I have lost 32 pounds since May. And it feels good. But I have been here before - so that is why I am back to JC. Of all the things I tried, I feel that the JC Community was by far the most supportive and most helpful. I picked up

Week 1: Success!

I have been on every "diet", fad and otherwise, known to mankind. They work for a bit, I can lose around 8 or 9 lbs and then I fall off the wagon.  I have spent a great deal asking myself why that is?  Why can my friend lose 60lbs on Isagenix and keep it off and I can't stay on it for 2 solid days?  How can my husband lose 30lbs eating BACON and I can't. Here's why-I haven't actually committed to a plan in YEARS.  Not once.  I pick and choose the elements of the plan that suit me at the time, as

Expectations Letting You Down?

Expectations Letting You Down?

This Monday was my daily weigh-in and to my surprise I lost exactly 2.0lbs for the week. That is such a huge loss for me so I was extremely excited.  A typical weekly loss for me is between .4-.6 lbs making this week’s loss the same as some entire months for me. Contrast that to some of the people on a Facebook group I also belong to. People routinely will start a post saying, “I stuck to the menu and I exercised and I only lost 2lbs. What did I do wrong?”  There have even been people who compla

The Slowest Loser

I figure I could quite possibly be the slowest person to lose weight on Jenny Craig and still be on the program. I first started Jenny Craig in April 2017 with about 60 pounds to lose. I could probably stand to even lose a little more but even at 51 years old, with decades of adult life behind me, I’ve never actually figured out what my ideal weight should be. I picked a goal weight that just tips me into the “normal” range for my height. At 5’8” most BMI calculators say I should weigh between 1

Alcohol & Weight

I recently read this in a fitness newsletter - I think it's worth the read! How Alcohol Makes You Fat If you glanced at the title of this article, you might have cringed. When it comes to fitness, nutrition, weight loss, and overall health, many of us have trouble areas. There are some individuals who have a glass of red wine with dinner every night. Others skip the drinking completely on the weekdays, then start throwing a few back on Thursday or Friday night, and keep it up until

Date #2 Playa del Carmen

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 (e

Scared

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?

I'm a newbie on this Blog, so bare with me...

Just got done with my first week in JC, since I moved to VA. This is my second or third time, joining JC, I started back like 4 years ago in Puerto Rico. Fell off the wagon big time, and from +/- 225 lbs, I found myself weighing 265 this past Monday. This morning I weight myself after completing the first week (been completely strict, with the rapid results regimen and everything) and to my surprise I weighed in 254 lbs. I have several goals the realistic one that I have been before of 220 lbs (

Monday June 18

Seems to me I am stuck in place lately.. every other day having eating fests. The last day or so they have been better - still may break out and have something but not major frenzy. So time to rein it in, Success breeds success... sort of like negativity breeds negativity. So let's make a grateful list, Silly as it may be... about the little things.  1. Love the forum 2.

WEEK NINE IS BEHIND ME...

Almost forgot to post my success for this past week.   I have lost a total of 24.8 pounds in nine  weeks:   Week 01: -10.8 Week 02: -03.8 Week 03: -01.2 Week 04: -01.9 Week 05: -01.0 Week 06: -01.7 Week 07: -01.7 Week 08: +01.8 Week 09: -04.5   This was a pretty good week.

MY WORST WEEK NEVER TO BE REPEATED...

I made it to week nine, but not without a glitch that cost me a 1.8-pound setback but not a defeat.   I have lost a total of 20.3 pounds in eight weeks: Week 01: -10.8 Week 02: -03.8 Week 03: -01.2 Week 04: -01.9 Week 05: -01.0 Week 06: -01.7 Week 07: -01.7 Week 08: +01.8   Saturday I had to work from 0600 hours-1800 hours. I packed up my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks and off to work I went. Unfortunately, when I arrived at work

Sad... today ... Checkin In

OK Gang - well up early and did a Beach Body workout (Day 6 or so of Obsession - I don't do them straight - but it was leg day)>. Since then I have been cleaning the house and checking in with email etc. Today I am feeling very sad. Work is a tad slow... and yesterday My sister and brother in law and I took Junior out for a farewell lunch, He goes to NYC for his work for the summer - and moves out of my parent's house. He leaves early Tuesday.    So Mom died March 5 - and I was not

GREAT NUMBERS!

This past Thursday I had an appointment with my endocrinologist (I'm a diabetic) and I thought he was going to throw confetti in the air. He was so impressed with my numbers and the reduction in my weight. My A1C is down from 9 to 6.4, my cholesterol is great, my blood pressure is good. EVERYTHING was where it needed to be, with one exception; I need more iron. I am going to try to remember to take the iron pills I purchased the last time he presented me with this information.   Praise

MADE IT TO WEEK SEVEN AND -20 POUNDS! YIPPEE!

I got to have my favorite (Fish & Chips), which I wish I could have each week, but I was told that I could not. Not sure I understand the rationale behind this, but oh well. It seems to me that

I Need Healthy Snacks

I need great ideas for healthy snacks.   Not until I started Jenny Craig did I realize that while I am studying, I have this tremendous urge to snack. Since I am usually busy working during the day, it really doesn't affect me until I am home in the evening and doing my homework. Sometimes I am so focused on my homework that I forget to eat my evening snack. However, I always take the last week of the semester off to focus on my research paper and a final exam. So for today and the fol

First I have the interview next week and I am sure my clothes are going to look a lot better on me with the reduction of almost 19 pounds. But the time my interview rolls around I will have

My Story

I'm not sure what made me type in "Jenny Craig" on my phone, one night, a few weeks ago.It seems that I have been yo-yo dieting for the last six years. Up 20 lbs, down 25, up 30 again.    Like many of you, I've given many diets and workout programs a go. Paleo, Whole30, keto, vegan, myfitnesspal, crossfit etc. I seem to be really good at losing 20 pounds, but its past that mark where I usually fall off the wagon. When I started Jenny two weeks ago, I weighed 220lbs. The highest I've ev

My Motivation to Succeed

I started on this journey not only to become healthy but to better my life experiences. I am scheduled to take three trips abroad and I want the ease of movement I will have when I lose fifty pounds prior to my departure. My first trip isn't until the end of January 2019. I am going on a mission trip to South Africa to spread God's word to the children, some orphans and some with AIDS. I am so looking forward to this trip. At the top of one of my menus on the Motivation line, I put, "I am on a m

Once again back on Jenny

Hey yeah guys,   It's been forever since I posted this is my new blog, hopefully I keep at it with this. I'm going back to Jenny tomorrow and starting on Sunday. I've done this program so many times that hopefully this is the last time that I'm on it. I'm gonna work my butt off to be able to keep off this weight because, I'm so tired of the heartburn and being tired all the time. Can't wait to start this journey again and hopefully for the last time. Praying this works, so they say 3 t
