Good morning. Well not much longer to write 2011. My sister and I were discussing new years resolutions and I think we have come up with a good idea. Now mind you in January 2009 I walked into Jenny Craig ready to make a change and it worked. I lost the weight and have kept it off. Anyway, this year we are going to do monthly resolutions. Better yet, we are going to do three a month. One is a humanitarian goal (volunteering or something), one is a personal goal (Something like, cleaning a c
I am not sure why I'm up at this ungodly hour. My sleep schedule has flipped ever since I finished my exams.
I have been recovering from a workout that went horribly wrong for about 5 days now. Since I start classes in less than a week, I'm looking forward to getting the most out of this week.
My gym offers classes from the Body Training Systems program. So last week I tried the Group Power class.
That class was great! It's relatively customizable, so you choose the weights according to your
Christmas week was quite a challenge. I really wanted to lose .4 pds to get to my 20 pd mark. I tried to eat on program and to really focus on working out leading up to and during Christmas. I did eat what I wanted on Christmas day. Not too much but enough to feel like I was not depriving myself.
I weighed in yesterday and I am happy to report that I lost .4 pounds and reached my 20 pd mark!
This week I am focusing on eating on plan and cranking up my workouts. I need to lose 2.3 pounds
Does anyone know a good place to buy some motivation?!
If only it were that easy!!
So you might already know a bit about me from my profile. Maybe not. So here's the summary:
I was obese, I joined JC, I began to eat healthy, I got addicted to Bikram yoga and I lost 60lbs. I am not at my goal weight yet, but I am loving the way I look and feel right now. I lost motivation after my 60lbs and maintained my weight for a bit. But now I am back to finish this!
I've become quite active since I st
Well Good Morning,
I was going to run outside today but on the way into work I heard the temps were in the 40's and with the wind chill it will feel like 20's. Yikes, it will be an indoor day on the treadmill for me. I am lucky, the building where I work has a gym on the first floor. With nice showers and everything. Makes getting in some exercise everyday a whole lot easier.
I have my bodyfit media on today so I will log in my calories burned tomorrow. I find when i have the bodyfit on I a
Well today was my beginning I am starting the official training program for my marathon. When i started Jenny Craig I could hardly walk across the street but as the weight has come off my life has changed.
I started with Water Aerobics, then walking, then walking/running a 5K and now many 5K's later and even a Half Marathon in Alexandria VA, last may. I am ready to tackle my new goal. A full marathon. For this adventure, my son and I are going to fly to San Diego and run in the Ro
Well, I decided this will only work if I make it work. This isnt going to be easy as I have failed a few times before. I get down -20 lbs but no further - then put it all back on very easily. But no matter what I try - it will only work if I make it work... so I'll try Jenny to get me started again. Exercise? Well for the last year and a half that has been non existent. I can feel it. Ultimatley I think I need to lose 45 - 50 lbs. That just seems too far away. For the immediate future I'd
I managed to survive Christmas! We didn't make food the center of attention; we went to church and made the holiday the center of attention. After church, we opened presents, collected the trash, and learned to use our new stuff. I'm glad Walgreens was open because my daughter needed batteries. The batteries were for a bank that indicates the amount of change inside of it. That piggy bank account goes into a bank with FDIC on the door. When we lose all the weight, that account is for new c
Ladies and gentlemen ... I am back at Jenny after a decent amount of time on my own. Let me just say, I am not back because I failed at keeping weight off. I am back because I have maintained a significant weight loss and I am ready for more to come off.
I started Jenny Craig in May of 2010 because I was in a bad place. Overweight and depressed-I knew I had to do something to change my ways. By September of 2011, I had lost over 30 pounds. I was thrilled.
People complimented me
This is the start of Week 18 and i am down 45 lbs. I was surprised that I had lost a pound this week given that I had fallen off the wagon so many times, I am bruised. But I got back on yesterday again, did my exercise, ate from the JC menu and drank a lot of water. I have been sick, had an episode of menopause, been to two unexpected holiday parties, and went to lunch with some friends that I hadn't seen in awhile in the past week. The lunch - I felt guilty when I should not have felt that
I have lost 34 pounds; that puts me under 200 pounds. If I don't want to obsess about the 70 pounds left to lose, 5 pound losses are my focus. Before I know it, I will lose over 100 pounds. I will, then, be able to kick up my heels and take a trip to a mega mall for the new wardrobe.
After looking at Mariah Careys new bod - I knew that I too, should call Jenny. However, if you know me on any personal level, then you know that I am not a phone girl, so I drove right on over and joined without procrastination.
Is it pricey? Not as pricey as your pride, (and hide) in a larger clothing size. I went with the METABOLIC MAX program that included the Body Media Armband. The arm band is like your virtual weight loss supervisor. It jots down every step you take (ie...physical act
On April 11, 2011, I joined Jenny Craig as an overweight senior citizen. Overweight people are often perceived as not being as smart as svelte people. Joining a reputable weight loss program is a smart move. Since joining, I lost 33 pounds. On my own, I lost only ten pounds in a year, therefore, the 33 pounds is better then it may appear. I also have some aches, pains, and balance problems making exercise a challenge but it is doable. Some aches and pains will dissipate with the weight lo
12/3/11 - Today i restarted Jenny Craig since my last attempt in 2008, since i have gain 10lbs since. I am approaching my 38th birthday and have decided that i must begin a new stage of life. I need to loss 40-50lbs to begin my family, to have a safer healthier pregnancy.
My boyfriend of 6yrs and i are talking family and better health. Of course he is extremely fit and active and i not so much. He is very supportive and encouraging which i believe will make this go around more successful
You think you can scare me with Oreo Cookie Cake??? You feel bad for me, while you eat that cheeseburger and fries and I eat my Jenny Meal...Let me tell you something, I have had a cheeseburger and fries, and while they are good, they are not worth me feeling bad about myself, they do not bring long term happiness in my life, as a matter of fact they bring the exact opposite, I always feel bad about myself for eating you and I always eat too much, so for now I will say goodbye, one day we will
Almost four months ago now, I married my best friend!
I was so proud of how many times the dress was altered (smaller!) and ecstatic about how the pictures turned out! (a corset can do wonders, my friend!)
Then came the all-inclusive honeymoon! We had a fabulous time, but from day one, I knew the fabulous food and copious amounts of St Lucian rum were not going to be a friend of the scale's when I got home. But I felt fabulous, even wore a bikini with confidence for the first time in a wh
Last Saturday I went to my Jenny Craig Center for my weekly weigh in and my routine doctor checkup. I checked in with Jenny Craig Consultant and I am 5 lbs until my goal weight. yay! My goal weight is 130lbs. Last weigh in was 134.8lbs. My doctors scale says 136lbs. Pretty close. I am so proud of my progress. so happy. I am glad I am improving myself. I tried on some of my jeans and realize that its fits more loser and better. I am able to zip my jeans and close my belt. yay!!!! My BMI is on the
I am so excited! I am traveling this week. For the first time in a long time, I did not have to use a seatbelt extender on the airplane! I still have a lot of weight to lose, but this is just the encouragement I need to stay "on program." I got my daily walk in this morning, and I plan to try to find a scale to help me keep track! It's going to be a good week. Food is not the only important thing at Thanksgiving. There will probably be food again sometime. I don't have to eat some of ev
So, after not being on the planned menu for about a week it looks like I didn't do too much damage. I ended up just going up 0.2 lbs, so in a way you could say I maintained my weight. Plus, I know I'm losing inches since last Friday I ended up putting on a dress that used to fight me rather snugly, and it fits fine now. So I'm happy so far with progress I've made, but now I've really got to kick things into high gear so I can start losing some serious pounds. This week I'm hoping to really n
I am finishing my 5th week being back at Jenny and I am happy to report that I have lost sixteen pounds and 5.5 inches. Getting back at was the hard part but now that my mind is made up again I feel that I will be successful. I know I can do it as I have lost 60lbs before on the program. I hoping to feel better and avoid knee replacement if I can get rid of all this excess weight. I know there will be unexpected events but I am going to do my best to deal with them as they come and know that Je
Well it seems like I was able to start off my Jenny Craig (JC) program on a good note, but sometime after week two I have hit some bumps in the road. I followed the diet as well as I could, and I had a few indulgences since I know one can't change the way they eat overnight. Yet I had good results after week 1 and lost 5 pounds. Even when you consider that it is mostly water weight that is still good, and a lot better than I expected to do. So of course I was motivated to go through week 2 and
