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
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
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 a
So I am back on the Jenny Train after a three year absence during which time I happily found all the little pound friends I had lost my last journey down JC Lane. I am once again ready to try and lose them for good this time. Darn friends anyway keep coming back . I actually did not mind the journey last time, however my temper got stirred up by my money hungry rude JC consultant that told me if I was not going to buy the full amount of food each week she was not going to do a consult with me e
Well, today I took the first step and decided to join Jenny Craig. So what motivated me? I just turned 29 and I am going through some transition. I am back at school and just decided enough is enough. I want to lose weight! I have been heavy all my life and I need to take control.
So, as I hope everyone else's journey is smooth, though I know there will be rough patches, I hope mine is as well.
Good Luck everyone!
I'm feeling such guilt right now. I just finished dinner at a wonderful restaurant where I shared appetizers, main course, and dessert. I also had two glasses of wine. Why, oh why?? My body is already repaying me for my gluttony. I feel sick and I deserve it! Lesson learned, wine equals poor decisions!
I'm feeling old today! My oldest child, Jessica, turns 21 today. It's hard to believe how time flies by. Enjoy life because it passes us by so quickly. It's time to get healthy so life is more enjoyable when we are older. Nobody wants to be sick when they are trying to have fun with their grandbabies!
Yesterday was 4 weeks on Plexus Slim Accelerator and I'm down 10.4 pounds, 10.75 inches, and 3% body fat. I'm more than happy with that!
Hubby and I went on a hike yesterday and we covered 8.71 miles, including some rough terrain. We really enjoyed it and can't wait to do it again! I can see this becoming a regular habit.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
I woke up sick yesterday and had to take a day off work. I'm feeling better today, though, AND it's Friday AND I'm off work on Monday! Yay!
Even though I was sick yesterday, I finally dragged myself out of bed in the early evening and took a walk with my husband. Then later in the evening my mom and I took a walk. So depsite being sick, I managed to get about 5 miles in. I was very pleased with myself because I could have easily stayed in bed.
It's Friday, people! Let's get ready for t
Sweat was pouring off me tonight as I did 30 minutes on the incline trainer, a Jillian Michaels incline program, and then 45 minutes on the treadmill. After that I lifted some weights, did some ab crunches, and then some stretching. I feel great; like I'm getting my old self back. I can't wait to get back into the full swing of running again. I'm so disappointed in myself for stopping in the first place!
My eating was on track today as well. I had a thin bagel for breakfast and half of a m
So, I've been gone for quite some time and looking at my posts yesterday when I came back, I couldn't really remember why I just stopped blogging one day. Then I looked at a few posts and remembered that I changed jobs and was traveling a lot, so I just didn't have time at first and then as time passed, I must have forgotten all about it. It's been 4 years!! A lot has happened in 4 years. I noticed my weight was around 141 when I left. Strangely, I maintained that weight for most of those f
Week 5 (7 Oct -13 Oct 12) Plexus Slim Review
I'm getting back to my active self. I logged approximately 24 miles on the treadmill this week and 8 miles hiking. My endurance and speed are improving.
So what did all of this do for my weight you ask? Well, I actually gained almost a pound this week. However, my body fat dropped .7% this week, so I'm not upset. I know I'm gaining muscle with all the running, and I also dropped another 3/4 of an inch. So total my body fat is down 3.6% and I've los
Since dropping 10 pounds, I am reenergized and I'm getting back to my old self. Although I had a relapse on Monday and went back to terrible eating for one meal, I vowed that evening to make up for it. And I did! Tuesday through Thursday of this week I have logged just shy of 18.50 miles on the treadmill and incline trainer. Yes, 18.5 miles in 3 days! That's the old me that I know. I forgive myself for Monday and pat myself on the back for Tuesday through Thursday! Happy Friday, everyone.
