Good morning, I can not beleive how 20 pounds lost can effect me so much.I have lots more energy. Yesterday I was cleaning and organizing the whole house. My fit bit hit an all time high of 23,040..That's crazy.. People are noticing that my daughter and I are losing weight ...it feels so good..
Well I hit the 20 pound weight loss...So proud of myself. My daughter and I started on February 1,2017...It has been great having someone to support me doing the program too. We are walking together,and counting steps with our fitbit..We hope to continue this upward pace...
Haven't blogged here for a few weeks. Obviously. I am at turns frustrated and ok I got this. Yet that is how it goes isn't it?
It may or may not be true but every blinking time I take on losing the weight eating or exercising....something happens.
Yet Lord willing I have determined to not be fazed and do what I can when I can. I am doing 1200 cal and on my own
as I won't be able to take up Jenny food for a week or two more. SIGH. I CAN DO THIS.
So between my own food and my
KISS My journey keeping weight loss simple with JC.
I am so happy I joined JC on March 8, 2017 because nothing could be simpler then this for weight loss!
In the past I tried to do it on my own only to get caught up in over complicating it and giving up.
Not this time!
How simple JC is: pre-made food, consultants to help, and the online community! Just to list a few.
My part: continue keeping my weight loss journey simple!
Week 1: -3.8. /-3.8
I gained this week. It's the first time that has happened since I have been on JC. I have been eating off-plan and giving in to temptations a lot. I have had a lot of other anxieties and things on my mind and food has been my comfort. I thought I could get away with it, but clearly that is not the case. I had gone up 1.4 lbs.
What do you do when this happens? My consultant reminded me of how excited I was on the first day that I came in, how successful I have been until now, and how
Off to weigh in today, just not feeling like I lost anything at all. I have been lazier this week .... even today not going off to golf. Seems I am not very motivated. Foods been ok, except for two extra glasses of wine yesterday.
Going to to the gym... I hope.. really not too motivated and will do a splin class and then see my JC consultant. Will be great to see here..as it's been three weeks as she was away last week.
Anyway boring post, am feeling boring.
This is my second time with JC. I went on this diet many years ago. Losing weight is not new for me. I went on Medifast and lost quite a bit of weight and it did not take to long but the food was horrible. It did not teach me how to eat in the real world. I believe on JC it will teach me that and I need that. Just two days on this diet and I see already how different I should be eating compared to how I have been eating, which is how I gained weight back. I love it that there is a blog sp
Sixth day and still at it! Did not go off at all ( which is really different for me- I always have an excuse to break and start tomorrow!). This time I really really want this! I have lost 6 lbs since Tuesday ( and inches because I fit into my 1.5 jeans from Chicos!) I couldn't zip them up at all! I am beyond excited!
So, I am back.... after jumping around and trying everything under the sun (and gaining 30 lbs, yikes!). Had my consultation yesterday with Beatriz( sweet lady, and she speaks Millie fluently)
she had to hold me up when I got weighed in.... oh my word, I am so very upset with myself for doing this to my body. But, ok, "that was yesterday, and yesterday is gone."
today 2/28/17 is my day 1.... I had my breakfast and I am feeling fine.... I might even go to my Zumba class class tonight
I am the type of person who likes my coffee to taste like candy. Not crazy-style -- most mochas at Caribou or Starbucks are too much for me and I ask for them to cut the flavorings in half. Nevertheless, I always thought I couldn't handle a plain latte. When I calorie-counted in the past, I sacrificed an extra 130 calories per day so that I could add Monin coconut syrup and Ghiradelli sweet ground chocolate to my espresso and milk every morning. To me, it was totally worth it. In my mind, I coul
Even though tonight I wasn't perfect (I made excuses for not feeling well and hardly eating during the day) tomorrow will be better in the health department. I enjoyed the evening and I can't let anything ruin that! Definitely still committed to my JC plan!!
Keep looking up, my fellow JCers!!
Am so grateful to have my health. Being home sick today isn't so great, especially because there is so much I'm missing out on doing at work.
The way I feel about work is how I am beginning to feel about my lack of action at home. In the past year there has been a lot of change. Some of that change is not good, and there is a lot for the better.
I'm grateful to have a husband who supports me even when I make bad choices, a job that affords me a
Marvelous Monday! Yes. I hate that programming about Monday.
At any rate, its a lovely day out and I got in a mile. I was thinking how irksome
it is ...don't eat that, can't have this. Or if you do indulge it has to be some
modified, paler, imitation. I don't want to be overweight and I also don't want
to not enjoy meals. Cause let's be real, more often than not those low cal etc
imitations just don't do it and are overly sweet, sweeter than if you had eaten
One of my favorite singers passed this morning, felt like I was kicked in the stomach. Love you Al Jarreau, ah
you will be missed.
Woke up feeling okaaaaaay then. Yet gave thanks and glad to see the day the Lord has made. It was lovely
after the storm yesterday. So today I did my own meal and well followed the J Craig format so lose or no...ok. whatever.
Me and my little dude walked for a little over a mile. Then I went out and walked another mile and a half. so perhaps got
Waiting and hoping for rain and wondering.....why am I hungry? It must be part of the process..answered my own question.
That happens often. And yeah, I'm thinking it must be part of the process and adjusting to eating a reasonable amount of
calories and relearning to eat properly(?).
At any rate I came to this blog and have decided that I will do so when I feel I must eat and I know I am not really hungry just
..something...I don't want to use bored because I don't feel that
Beautiful day today....so walked my little dude and later kept a promise I made to myself...walked one mile. 1.23 to be exact.
Overall strange day, woke up scratchy throat and mild headache but I had to run out to get my little dude some groceries.
Returned and was restless yet sleepy? I laid across my bed and watched some AcornTV..maybe dozed.
Then thought..get that walk in. Well when I returned I found that restlessness gone and the sleepyness...
So preparing my JC chickenp
I posted about the scale on the forums when I first started Jenny Craig. I dug around to find it - and want to keep it where I can find it easily - because the scale is the one thing that can ruin an otherwise good day, (even though I know the "truth" about the fickle scale). She can be a real mood wrecker! I have conversations with my scale. I call her Lady Di (my short for obedience!). (Well - in truth some days I call her the B word, or worse....). I actually have conversations with Lad
I need to start from over there first. January 2016 had me knowing I needed to restart.....again x?????. I was weighed
and weight was 197...I couldn't believe it and yet I did. I started walking and joined every weight FB place and group ** sparkpeople and the like **
I came across. I was walking a mile and actually I was walking two miles when you counted the return trip. I got up to 5 miles..walking and run/jogging.
I went too fast and would have sore heels that kept me from wal

Week One completed. My JCC is good. The food interesting and overall tastes well. I was kinda iffy on the shrimp and actually wondered
how it got in there. Having no longer any use for a microwave, I now wrap in foil and put in oven and thanks to the 'Ladies' I now have a
manual cooking guide to follow. GO LADIES!!
I was getting hungry my 2/3 day but that eased and now if I feel hungry I know it's not because of the change of diet and
Ridiculous, right? I lost 0 weight the week before which is part of this equation, for sure. I may just have to go on vacation often.
I went out to dinner. I snacked on veggies with a tiny taste of Humus... I did not have my JC desserts all nights. (One or two nights I did). I brought JC dressing with me. One night I had filet - and left half. Another night Branzino and ate every morsel. One nigh Salad with Salmon - always asked for stuff dry - it's just a meal... I am reading a book (Thank
I read something from a book that has helped my on this Journey of Change. I'm going to post what I wrote in my Journal which is a paraphrased version, some of which I added with my own thoughts. I'll have to look for the book to give credit to the original author.
