This morning, I made it below 200. I'll take it! Two days after my 56th birthday. So, I celebrated... with a nice hike up Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain in the Adirondacks. I took my son and my two cavalier king charles spaniels. The summit is 1450 feet. Lots of inclines! I'm going to feel this tomorrow.
Note:***I will keep this blog entry for one week and add to it. If I binge - I will post it here no matter what!! So let's get through this week - with my plan in tact.... my heart in tact...
Saturday 9/30/17 9AM
Hi Guys - Today i go for my weigh in - I will definitely be up. Last week went pretty well - but Thursday was a night of binging. There's no way that is allowed for on my plan or way of life. For me it is a terrible sign that I may spin out of control and gain the weigh
Yes, it's my birthday. I'm 56 years old today. As usual, I'm spending my birthday alone, but it's no big deal. Birthdays at this age aren't that important to me. I'll put a candle on my JC cupcake, blow it out and congratulate myself for staying on Jenny Craig in spite of it being my birthday. The only thing non-plan that I did today was have a skinny salted caramel macchiato and boy oh boy was it good! So.... one milk, right? And 30 extra minutes on the bike.
I will celebrate
It's one month. My scale continues to move downward. But I really try not to focus on the scale this time around. I'm trying to focus on what's getting me through and helping me to move forward in my journey to be fit n fabulous.
....I like how I wrote that down - that I don't focus on the scale. WHO AM I KIDDING? I'M ON A WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM, OF COURSE I CHECK THE SCALE. So many people probably do that: write down BS to make it seem like they're really being a good girl. On
I'm writing this here now. My future goals. I don't want to overwhelm myself with all I want to accomplish at once. So, I'm putting this in writing to remind myself what I would love to accomplish as I get healthier. Later in my journey, I want to view this and see how far I've come.
This year's goal was to get my physical health in order. I'm on my way. I've been working with doctors to make sure my health is in check. They're actually listening to me! Now I have no excuses a
Previously, I preferred to look at the world through rose-colored glasses. "All will be ok and I will be fine." Well, since we're all here together, you can see where that got me.
I've been on a journey. To find myself and move forward...with myself...regardless of what is in my way. It's been a journey that started about 5 years ago. I had many life situations that happened around me, affecting me, but not about me. I tried to help, nuture, parent, be a good daughter, be a goo
So... here I am. I'm not new to this. In fact, I probably could become a weight loss consultant myself! This is my third time being back at Jenny Craig. If anything, I'm consistent at returning. But why am I here ... again?
Well, if you're like me, you've tried everything and anything on the planet to lose weight and keep it off. You would get so far- seem "ok" with your success; stop the program and then gain it all back.... and sometimes gain more weight than when you last
OK So these past two weeks I have been staying at a hotel in Atlanta and eating out for most meals (though they have Publix and Whole Foods... so I did not have to) . Also Drinking wine (a couple of glasses) each night. Net net weigh in this morning - I will be up a pound or three. People say the eating comes form stress- I think it also is insecurity, So surrounded by really bright stars from my company on ,my new project doing something I am not the worlds leading expert in (go figure). creati
Hey Guys - well just a quick post - as requested - new outfits... I don't have picture of the size 4 jeans and shirt where my stomach shows (a teensy bit). It feels great to be able to maintain here in Atlanta (Avoiding hopefully the worst of Irma).
Yesterday visited JC and met Ashley a terrific consultant in ATL - up .5 pounds - but nothing to worry about (I think I am down today according to the OTF scale 139). So not too worried - but watchful. Making better decisions and maybe sk
Wearing a high day to fall out of the new tricks to wear fashionable flat shoes to live in the summer Lead: hot to the sun side by side with the big summer has been uncomfortable cheap nike air max sale, and if coupled with high heels torture really can not put on nike air max 2017.

Liberate your feet, get rid of the shackles, as long as comfortable, please give me a pair of flat! bottom! shoe! enough! t Taiwan but can not guess
Who am I? I mean I KNOW my name, where I live, the career I built, and the family I love, but when I look in the mirror, I don't recognize myself. I'm crossing a bridge I couldn't wait to get to, and now am not sure HOW I got here. Where did the time go? When did I quit adding tampons to my shopping list? When did midnight become late, and the thought of "burnin' it down" means a bubble bath with wine, and my sweet husband rubbing my feet?
I don't want to let time take over, and give
I thought I would remind myself what 5 ounces of wine looks like. I find myself short of calories .. and on the low range weight wise - so decided to have some wine tonight. OK so I have wine alot when I go out.. sometimes at home. And it's impt when I am out to know how many calories I am having.
So here's 5 ounces of Matua Sauvignon Blanc. So many foods are easy to overdo and rack up the calories.
I know I shouldn't be annoyed by this, but my boyfriend is also trying to lose weight, and all he did was cut out beer and go to the gym more often, and he has dropped 20 POUNDS in 3 weeks. I have only lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks. Sometimes, I weigh myself in the morning, and I am below 170, and then 6 hours later, while sticking to the plan, I gain 4 pounds. I know that water weight causes fluctuations, but it still sucks that men can lose twice as much weight with less effort than women! I kee
I am now, officially, an Empty Nester! My daughter graduated from high school and moved in with her father, because he has an apartment within walking distance of the University of New Mexico Campus where she will be attending classes, starting tomorrow. My son now has an apartment with friends and rarely visits me. They no longer require my culinary services, just financial support. My doctor put me on diabetes medications (Invokana and Metformin) awhile ago. I lost 20 pounds, but need to lose
I am excited. I rejoined Jenny today. I feel more motivation this time around. I made a fancy signature and everything! I want to do the labor day challenge even though I am late to join it I think. That is ok. I still want to lose weight for Labor Day and for lots of other future days. I want this time to really stick with the program. My problem is I give up easily. I get very discouraged and I don't know how to talk myself out of how I am feeling. I can be very negative and discouraging for m
Today I visited jenny Craig center to say hi and hit Marshalls. Looking for a white t-shirt. Did not find it, but found some nice Size 6 Calvin Klien shorts and beautiful sexy shirts for work and fun. As I was shopping I was thinking.. So you are going to spend this money on clothes... and what stay this weight? The answer was yea I am!! Yes we can So maintenance is tough - I love food! But Jenny Craig is here for me - and I believe I will do this ... one day at a time .. just keep on keeping on
Journey update: I am almost 5 months into Maintenance and just want to report in that maintenance has good overall - I've had a few too many BBQ outings and a couple of vacations this summer that has me needing more accountability lately - so decided I need to keep posting my Journey! Weight Maintenance at my age is more work than I wish it was - but worth every ounce of effort!! I feel great and have WAY more energy than I did a year ago! Yeah! This photo was taken over the 4th of July.
So I am off to happy hour in my new dress. Jenny Craig rocks!!!Never ever give up - this is your time! If you are new or struggling or thinking about straying. Don't.... This is how we do it. It works!!! I have come to love the food. love the people, love the plan. So today went out with my fitness coach, her mom and another friend- needless to say they are breathtakingly beautiful women. After lunch (salmon power bowl, cooked dry with JC dressing - about 400 calories). We went to the Vegan bake
So some of you know I have been working out at my fitness class I take (Orange Theory) but tonight I was inspired by SFMOM who was dancing at home. So I searched for dance videos... and found one that is a little Silly - but got me up off my chair and sweating - and not heading right to dessert and bed.
So I think I will see if I can keep this up for 7 days. So this is the 7 days of you tube videos... None of them are my videos... and I have a bunch that I love that really work you
So life is soooo good. I just spent Sun eve thru This morning on a work trip in Toronto. FANTASTIC. I loved running and sightseeing... Fantastic city. Glad to be home.. and looking forward to being home and staying more on track with jenny. I did ok while away - but kind of like being back.
Anyway great trip...
My body hated me so much when I started JC. Thought I'd use my blog debut to record all the weight related issues I faced/am facing:
A chronic cough due to GERD that I'd had for 16 mos.
Plantar fasciitis in both feet
Lower back pain
Inability to do things I used to easily, like cross my legs, go for long walks, skate and hike up hills with the ease of a mountain goat.
I just started JC 3 weeks ago, but I've lost 10 lbs, my c
Just decided to count my Days (ok google did that for me)... and we are here at Day 333. 2 days from my birthday. What a fantastic present. I can tuck in a shirt. Priceless!!!! I am so very happy I went to Jenny. I am definitely my thinnest ever. I buy size small. Whaaat? Bought a jean jacket to where on my date (yes date) next week. Oh wait the point is I bought it at Banana Republic (Which for the record I could not fit into their clothes 333 days ago) and it's a size small. It might be on t
