Time to make weightloss a priority




I am officially back on the Jenny Craig program as of December 20th! My biggest challenges at this point in time are 1. the financial commitment & 2. lack of support from my friends.

It is strange to me the importance that my friends place on the need to consume alcohol in order to have a great time. I am moving provinces on January 12th and as part of my commitment to reach a 10lb loss goal by that date is to eliminate all alcohol from my diet. I feel as though some people in my world feel as those my choosing to not consume is insulting to their plans and I can honestly say that I feel pressure to make it easier for everyone by just having a glass of wine.

But I am going to stay strong & stay committed - this weightloss is for me and is long overdue. The wine will be there after the weightloss and the skinny me will know how to have one glass to enjoy and then switch to water and still have a wonderful time with my friends.

Is the not drinking alcohol when you are out or at your friends place? Do you have an opportunity to mix your own drinks (cannot do that with wine) or wisper in a waitress ear?

I had a similar issue as I was a beer drinker, so when I switched to Vodka & diet coke, I received many comments as well. I told them it was because of too many calories in beer compared to diet pop. They agreed and understood. Now it's easy. They don't aske the questions anymore as they still think I drink, but in fact my drinks are 1 real drink, 3 virgins. Result: 50 lbs lost.

you can do this, they will support you when they see some results although that will take a while. Moving to another province is the prime opportunity to make that lifestyle change and meet new friends.

The same thing happens to me!!! Drinking kills my weightloss every time. I have monitored my weightloss on Jenny, and have identified weight gain or stayed the same the weeks that I gave in to the pressure.

One thing for certain, drinking diet coke for a few months while we are out with our friends isn't that bad. Going out come summer time in a size or two smaller will make it totally worth it. Then they will be wishing they did the same thing! Stick to your guns girl!! My counselor says no more then two glasses of wine a week.
