“It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building w
SO as many of you know , i have had some struggles lately. Travelling againn for work - and eating up a storm. Broke up with a man - and started a new job. And I am a Compulsive Overeater.. So I let that impact my food decisions and now I am 20 lbs up form my goal and ready to get back on the horse. I would love to literally hit the ground running - but had a keratin treatment and no exercise allowed for a few days - cant get hair wet. So I am just going to work on food consumption, Which is r
Hey Guys - Wanted to post a picture of me at a lower weight when I started dating 6 months ago. I was still a little high for my maintenance but not where I am today. So as I embark on Jenny now - with the goal to get back down to my lower goal I wanted to see what I am shooting for. Net-net I am proud of how I look today - and of the weight loss. Sure I want to get back down to have wiggle room and fit into my smaller clothes. But seeing this picture - and I know I am not a size 24W and at Lane
Hey Guys - Just thought I would write a quick post. I am having a blast dating this man I met. He lives in Maryland and buying a home in Texas... So sort of a traveler. He is 62 (I'm 55) and he is retired and we met here in Florida - and he asked me for Date #1 (weekend in Austin and San Antonio... and Date 2 Thursday - Monday in Playa Del Carmen. SO grateful to have the weight off for these summer trips - bathing suits and the like. I just go do stuff and love to look good - and when I don't (e
Seems to me I am stuck in place lately.. every other day having eating fests. The last day or so they have been better - still may break out and have something but not major frenzy. So time to rein it in, Success breeds success... sort of like negativity breeds negativity. So let's make a grateful list, Silly as it may be... about the little things.
1. Love the forum
2. WIndow guy coming to measure so I can get screens on my door, safe glass in the house... security, and seeing that m
OK Gang - well up early and did a Beach Body workout (Day 6 or so of Obsession - I don't do them straight - but it was leg day)>. Since then I have been cleaning the house and checking in with email etc. Today I am feeling very sad. Work is a tad slow... and yesterday My sister and brother in law and I took Junior out for a farewell lunch, He goes to NYC for his work for the summer - and moves out of my parent's house. He leaves early Tuesday.
So Mom died March 5 - and I was not
OK So I thought I would take the inspiration from the blog post of @Staci Greene. You guys must go read her post. Her success on Jenny is truly inspiring and her pants are falling of... You Go Girl! And she planned an awesome day yesterday. So thought I would plan my day in a similar vein.
OK so here's the great news. My pants fit. Yup - I am rocking the size 4 Lululemon workout pants! So happy they fit. working from home today - so no great outfit, but will change into golf shorts
Hey everyone - just a low key Saturday - Sure I walked 12 miles that was a tad strange but it was fun... (...LOL). And wanted to post a picture to say it's not just a normal day. Normal for me was gaining weight, being heavy and wishing I could go on a diet. So just checking in - and pretty sure people are sick of all my diatribes on the forum posts. I figure this is my section.. so I can be as vain or boring as I want here .No? Anyway - Off I go to JC today, Trying to not buy expensive entree
So it occurred to me that one of my goals for the New year's challenge is to drink 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water a day. I recently listened to a podcast on losing weight and they were saying big huge goals dont really work for weight loss or to make significant changes. So do goals that support the longer term gola. So I guess my goal is to be healthier and reduce bloat and whatever else water does for you..... also 8 glasses a day today does not seem achievable... so thought I would bl
So I am prepping for surgery and want to be as healthy as possible. One of my struggles is eating too many veggies and gas. I figure this is a good time to try and cut back! So starting tomorrow for each lunch and dinner I will commit to one veggie portion. Not a salad and veggie, not nibbling before hand. No need to I can always eat between meals - have a yogurt, water, soda, tea, or a veggie. I feel like I eat so much at meals because I don;t want to feel deprived and think I will be hungry. I
Warning Controversial Posts - As I imagine some of you are against surgery....So you may want to skip this one....
Hi Guys - We' ll for years I have been thinking of getting plastic surgery on my breasts. After losing 100 lbs in Overeater's Anonymous I had a tummy tuck (abdomnioplasty) and thigh skin removed etc (lipectomy) but skipped the breasts. The Abdomen surgery tightened the muscle and removed a ton of excess skin. The thigh = left a pretty big scar, but also got rid of extra
65 pounds down... time to continue this great trend and not eat over feelings.TY. Jenny Craig! Expensive - No! if you compare it to the cost of being heavy - clothes, health, lack of happiness, not fitting on airplane seats etc. I am worth it... and so are you,
OK Just wanting to set it down my plan for handling very high stress client... in hotel all week and working late hours. Goal: Maintain the path forward... lose 2 pounds or so - by keeping it clean.

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...

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
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
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.
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
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...
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
Should I be used to this? Went away this weekend to my cousins graduation and made a mad dash to Chicos to find a white t-shirt to put with Black pants.. But alas I bought a ton of stuff. First off - I remember when I could not fit into Chicos. Did you know they have a size 00? say What? (I had 00 jeans on...) Anyway I purchased a bunch of clothes in size 0. Wow... So if you have not shopped Chico's size 0 is not a true size 0... it's more like a Size 6 or on the smaller side of a size 8.
