About this blog

One year ago on December 28, 2016  I walked into my Jenny Craig Center to begin a new journey.  I started out strong but everything fell apart half way through the year. A little bit about me....I am the mother of three incredible adult daughters.  They are the joy of my life.  I have been married for 31 years and have a husband that has loved me, no matter what my size, and is my biggest support and cheerleader.  I have been dealing with hypothyroidism so weight loss has been a battle but they finally got my medication correct so I'm hoping this battle will get a little easier. 

I decided that I wanted 2017 to be my year but it was not happening.  My first six months I did lose weight not a lot but enough to give me hope.  As I said dealing with hypothyroidism can make  losing even one pound a challenge.  In January of this year (2017) I started a new part time job that I loved and within six months was moved to a new and very challenging position.  As I started learning the new job I found spacing meals out to be a challenge and I would go hours in between meals or snacks. My weight loss came to a screeching halt.  The second greatest stress and heartbreak  in 2017 was my father who was very ill.  My heart broke when my dad died in the fall and I turned to food for comfort.....except I learned food is not a comfort and I know my dad would be very sad that I was eating instead of dealing with my emotions.   

Enter my Jenny Craig coach.  She had not seen me in about six months and reached out.  I truly believe there are angels walking this earth and she threw me the life saver I needed.  I set up an appointment to come back and today December 28 2017 I walked into my Jenny Craig center again to restart my journey.  I'm excited to get started and I am filled with hope!!   I learned that eating my emotions just causes more pain and I learned that when people reach out to help be sure to  grab that lifeline!  I'm so ready for the New Year and I know that  2018 is going to be an interesting and exciting year!!!  

 

I'm not the best at expressing myself but I hope you will follow along and share my journey with me.  Please feel free to comment and give any advice.

Week Three and staying the course

I am in my third week back on the program.  It has been a challenge but I am staying the course.  My family doctor put me on some heavy duty antibiotics for a horrible sinus infection.  I found out that the antibiotic that I am taking has a side effect of rapid weight gain  so  I have been drinking a ton of water and staying true to the menus because the last thing I want to see, at my weekly weigh in, is jump in my weight.  My first week I lost a little over a pound and then last week I lost th

Words to remember

Recently I was talking to a friend about losing weight.  I told her how much I hoped to lose and she reached out and gave me a huge hug and asked what she could do to help.  I told her to be kind and cheer me on when I started questioning why I was doing this.  She said not a problem but she also told me  the biggest challenge in losing a large amount of weight is the mental work.  It's really not about the food or nutrition as much as the life and eating habits.   I thought about her words and
