Hey all, It has been FOREVER since I have blogged on here. I am in maintenance and I have never felt so good! I have to say it has not been easy. There have been times when I have just sat on my bed and cried because I was unsure of how to make it through the day. I have found it is okay to slip up, nobody is perfect and if they say they are most likely they have more flaws than anyone else. I have been doing so well in maintenance that I wanted to share with you all a few tips I have found to b
As any one knows that reads this blog I suffer from extreme anxiety. It has been something that used to get in my way on a daily basis. Not anymore! I had a major breakthrough a few weeks ago. I realized that I didn't feel worthy of my weight loss. I felt as, if I lost MY weight people would see who I really am. What's so bad about that you ask? To me it was horrifying. I had been hiding behind this 'chubby girl' image so that nobody would want to approach or talk to me. I subconsciously liked b
I have been on Jenny for a little over 6 months, I can not believe I have lost a whopping 45 pounds! That's insane, and what is more insane a year ago I would have never thought I would be as healthy as I am. I walk almost every day and I jog at least 3x a week. I would have never seen myself 'jogging' prior to jenny! Life has definitely happened since I have started on the program. I am my busiest at work during the summer. I have wedding almost every weekend, and I am busy all week with client
It is unfortunately, that TOM for me. BUT, I have lost almost 2 pounds this week! Here are some ways I have found really help me cope with the bloat and irritability and I thought I would share since i'm sure i'm not alone in this.
I try to go to bed much earlier than normal, this way I don't think about how hungry I am or have to think about my DH getting in bed with me(I don't like cuddling during my TOM, shoot me haha) I also try to drink as much water as possible during the day this really
I've been creeping down in my weight loss and haven't understood why. I was doing so well at the beginning and then I started being ounced to death! Haha, I know I am very grateful to be rid of those ounces, then a light went off! I was eating too much fruit! I had bananas and oranges and grapes and strawberries. I stayed within my portion sizes. I also started implementing fruit drinks, the natural low sodium low sugar kind. I thought wow, I'm doing so well and staying on plan. Then I started t
Here's a little background on me. I have a severe anxiety disorder, which has been something that has hindered my weight loss. I was diagnosed with Agoraphobia in my early teens. I was never over weight until around 19, after that every year it seemed I gained at least 10 pounds. I'm not sharing this for a pity party but to help others with severe anxiety. I've lost over 20 pounds and could not be happier. I used to have the mind set that if I was having severe anxiety or a panic attack I would
I love to write and only now did I find this blog creator. What a great way to vent, even if no one reads...
Today has been a very rough day. I've had two counts of bad news and what did I choose to do rather than open that cupboard that seemed to be glowing and singing to me?! I chose to go for a run! Me? Wait a second here, I don't run. Well today with all this anxiety and frustration that is indeed what I did. I ran, ran and ran some more. I can't believe I made a healthy choice, that is mos
