Week 5: I Hate Those Slow Kind of Weeks!




Well, I was a bit late on my fifth week blog post, but I was feeling a little discouraged this week. On my weekly Wednesday weigh in I was only down 0.5 pounds this week! Not feeling too great about that, but I guess it is better than a gain! I had a not so good eating day yesterday either. My friend ordered pizza (yikes not good), so I had a slice as I was starving and didn't have time to eat my dinner with the school work I had going on for the day (I know, still not a good excuse). Here is my biggest problem: I haven't told any of my friends that I am on jenny craig or trying to lose weight and my family/friends do not have very good eating habits that is for sure. Why do I not tell them you may ask? It is not exactly that I am embarrassed because really I should be proud that I am trying to do something with my weight and what not. I just feel like I don't want to make my weight loss a big deal to everyone..if that makes sense. I want to continue on with my day without people asking, "Oh we are going to eat ___, I hope you don't get tempted, I'm sorry" or have anyone feel bad about eating something that I can't have. I know it is weird of me, but I am just satisfied with saying no. I have been really good about not feeding into my friends temptations with all of the yummy food that they eat (I am trying to not look at it as yummy anymore because jenny craig food is delish), but I fell into my bad ways last night. I am going to be 100% strict from now on because I have this month to do really well because I am sure December is not going to be a great weight loss month (but I am going to try my best :D ). Anyway, that is my little rant for the day.

I hope you all had a better weight loss than I did - and hopefully I have a better weight loss next week!!!!

p.s my weight loss goal for november is 265! I am at 270.2 - almost made my October goal, but not quite - so I hopefully I make this goal all the way and more!!

Everyone has those weeks and all we can do is learn from it and move on. I totally understand what you're saying about not wanting people to feel bad. My husband was the same way when I first started. I went to go get him Chipotle, my favorite, and he felt bad. But, I was proud of myself for being able to go there, smell all the deliciousness, and not indulge in it that day. Hopefully, if you do decide to open up to your friends, they will quickly get over and reservations they have and offer you the same type of support you find here.

I totally get the privacy thing. I have only told a few select family members and friends. I don't want them to expect me to be 99 lbs next time they see me or ask me...how much I've lost all the time. I totally get ya! Keep going!! We can do it!!

Ya exactly - I agree with both of you!! Sometimes when I was on diets or food plans in the past I would get really sensitive when they would ask me if I would be 'okay' if they ate certain foods in front of me and I just wanted to say - "of course - I am not a monster!!" hahaa. But yes, it is just better this way for now because I am accountable to only myself and my JCC and all of you lovely people on the forums :D And exactly FaizaYagi, it's almost like saying no to bad foods makes me feel more strong because I am learning self control and not because I am on JC! (if that makes sense haha!)

I was just thinking too, that if you've been on more than one plan, such as myself, it could potentially lead to embarrassment when people ask what happened to the other plan. I think that's the situation my mom is in. She's done both Jenny and Weight Watchers but she is in denial of what it actually takes to be successful. So until she gets to that point I know its hard for her to talk about why she quit. Your post helps me to understand her situation a little better also.

I'm sorry to hear that about your mom :( I'm happy my post was able to help positively in that way! It is a difficult situation to be in, but I'm sure with your help and support, she will eventually get the motivation to follow a plan that she loves!
