So the mystery behind my extreme overnight weight-loss is finally solved. Yesterday, my mother came to visit me and when she weighed herself, she was down 10lbs from her usual weight. Yes, my scale is the problem and yes, I guess I haven't reached my goal weight after all because I have 10lbs to go.
Today I have decided to go on self weight-maintenace, because I stayed in the low 120s in terms of pounds this past week and this morning I was 120.6lbs. This self-maintenance phase will continue on until around mid-January of next year, in which I will decide what to do next.
Even though I am technically considered at my goal weight now, I can't bring myself to fully accept that fact and move on to the maintenance stage. There are still a little less than one month of time before I head home for the holidays, and until then I would still like to see whether my body will show any better changes, whether the number on the scale goes down or not. If I still have the flappy arms and double chin by the time I'm home for the holidays, I will continue to lose weight by my c
So on November 22, 2016, or two days ago, I weighed myself after waking up and bam, the scale read 122lbs.

Thus, I don't even know what to do now, although I've stayed 122lbs exactly for the past two days eve

After writing my first blog, I never visited this community part of the Jenny Craig website again until recently.
Even though I still have lots to go in my journey, I have come to realize something important about weight-loss: weight-loss is a lifestyle change, and not just a diet.
When I am on Jenny Craig now, I am no longer picky about the food items I want to replace, or mixing and matching ideas to satisfy my cravings for food. I no longer fuss over how quickly I want
One thing that scares me the most is going back for another term at college because I can never focus on losing weight when I'm trying to pass that final! However, being a college student means being in a mass amount of debt, so I really have no more money to buy extra snacks with the food portion of my budget all spent on Jenny Craig. I hope this time my academic life will actually work IN FAVOUR to me for ONCE!
