On Week 2



I have decided to write a blog --not sure if I will keep up with this but, it's worth a shot!

I am 22 and recently married. Looking at my wedding photos and I am horrified to see myself in them. How did I get this way? It seems only yesterday I was 130 pounds! I then pinch myself and realize I have been bordering 200 pounds for the last FOUR years. I would always blame my medication or stress. It is time to take a stand!! I have dieted myself and even went to see a dietician weekly. The one thing I learned was that I didn't understand portion control. The first time I dieted (almost 2 years ago), I lost 20 pounds (so I was about 180 pounds) and I cut out foods that I loved and ended up breaking my diet and going back to my favorite foods and the result is where I am now.

I went to the doctor's office with my husband (kept my actual weight number a secret). He saw how much I actually weigh (I would always say oh, around 180ish). I weighed in at 194 pounds! I felt ashamed! As soon as we left, I immediately drove to Jenny Craig. No more excuses! Here I am 9 days in and am actually sticking to my plan pretty well!

I think my only concern is that I am so used to "starving" myself and only eating twice a day (but it was all fatty/junk foods) and with the Jenny Craig plan ---eating so often makes me really not hungry! I sometimes skip out on the afternoon snack (chips or the pretzels) because I am not hungry. Is this bad? I add a whole bunch of vegetables when I eat dinner. Thoughts? I am ready to be 140 pounds. My real motivation: to be able to wear the clothes I want to wear and to have people stop judging me based on my weight!

I did low-carb before, so I feel guilty when I eat the Jenny food because its a bunch of carbs that are no-no's on low carb! But, I feel like its important to eat when youre hungry. Maybe start out eating earlier in the day?
