    @xtine danielle - Very exciting to follow your journey - as you WILL do this! Let me know when you get to maintenance phase and share your "ins and outs"! I think that portion of the plan is my most important goal this go around! It's so easy to follow JC meal plan. If $$$ didn't stop me - I think I'd stay with JC food forever!! But that being unrealistic for me - I am going to learn my way through maintenance. Let's do this!!!

    Thank you for your kindness. I still have hope. I will do all I can to prolong the time-span and hope they find a cure. And Jenny's recipe for tuna salad is terrible. lol But that was Sunday lunch for me today and I managed to eat it. We can do this.

    So sorry to read about your situation. Any of these things would be a challenge, not just to your diet changes but to your health and life in general. I know some people have difficulty knowing what to say to people with true problems, not just the common "I had a flat tire and was late to church" types of problems. It is a shame your JCC did not handle the situation well. It sounds to me that you are running a tape loop of problems, not surprising but it is tearing you apart. I myself was recently told that, if lucky I could live 3 more years. That tape loop is running in my background all the time so I can sympathize. Hang in. The thing that keeps me sane is concentrating on the little everyday things. Do this task as it should be done, plan the next thing. The routine is giving me time to cope and normalize the situation. No one can make your problems go away but there are those who do want to support you.

    Brilliant idea.. I am a volume eater - and need to look at portion sizes again - The salad plate is a great option to help us train our minds. SO this is what lasagna serving looks like... or even a burger...

    Wonderful blog! I am right there with you. I need new clothes that fit but going into the dressing room is so stressful. On a whim I ordered skinny jeans from Neiman-Marcus on big sale/mark down. I was so excited that they fit - I could wear them everyday. I love how they hug my butt and slim my legs. And best of all - they fit me perfectly. I hope they get too big for me soon.

    I truly cried when I read this. I am so sorry. It brought back so many memories of my Mom's death. I'm sorry your Mom snapped at you. I'm sure it was in her own place of grief - but still ........ you are his baby girl. I hope you are doing okay - navigating the first weeks of grief are hard. Just plain hard. I promise you that you will never stop missing him, even if he was sick for a long time. BUT the memories start to become sweet and tender, without the raw pain - in time. I miss my Mom so much, but I feel it's a tender soft feeling now days. It's like a special longing - but not one that feels like I've been punched in the stomach. More like a whispered kiss on my cheek. Be easy on yourself in these early days. Lot's of self care. Much love and sympathy to you.

    Thank you. Interestingly, I heard his voice one night, in that moment between sleep and waking. You are right that he is here with me. Thank you so much for your kind words and your support. It means the world to me.

    I am so sorry that you are going through this difficult time. You are doing an amazing job at handling all of this. Be gentle on yourself. I can totally relate about how you feel regarding your JCC call. I'm on JC Anywhere also and yes, the calls definitely feel scripted as it's the same thing every single week. Unfortunately, I don't get much from my Consultant calls either. I do wish I had a Center within driving distance of where I live. I started the program for the first time back in 2015 and lived close to a center. The in person consultations were much better, much more motivating, and I feel like I got A LOT more out of my weekly visits. I don't want to complain, though, because I am happy they offer the JC Anywhere program otherwise, it wouldn't be an option for me now, living so far away from a Center. Stay strong, girl!! You've got all of us here on the forums praying for you and supporting you.

    when my Dad died a few years back, I called to cancel my JC appointment. I cannot believe that I remembered to do that. Take care of yourself even it is something simple. It helps.

    So sorry to hear about your father's declining health. Watching someone you love suffer and feeling helpless to do anything is the absolute worst feeling. We lost both of my in-laws this past fall - my FIL on October and MIL in December. FIL had cancer and went quicker than anyone expected - which I see as a blessing. MIL was completely unexpected, but after a fall in August with a broken femur, she had one issue after the other and her health declined to the point where she was in a state very similar to your father's. I find comfort in knowing that they had a long life that was lived well and were surrounded by people who loved them. I will be praying for you and your family. ~Marguerite

    Hope that his suffering isn't prolonged. I can't stand hospitals. I've traveled that path with both my parents but lucky (?) that they were able to die at home. My quest for weight-loss is fueled by my ambition to outlive them -- big time. Neither of my parents saw 70 yrs old and they actually were both very healthy people until they each had a major illness. At 54, I have a lot of living to do and I want to live each and every one of those days in best possible shape. I am sorry that your family is not near you - that must be very difficult. Hoping for better days ahead for you.

    I am so sorry about your dad. I’m glad you got to see him and I hope your memories of him will bring you solace.

    So sorry to hear about your dad. Just went through a few years with my parents. So glad you went though to give your mom comfort. I looked up those bakery items.. and they look good. I'm sure it was about comfort food. And don't despair over the weight, you will get it off. After my Dad died turned to Jenny with a vengeance. I wanted to be in the best shape I could be in. He had said if there's something bothering you about your life - fix it.. So I did. I need to remember that I honor him by being happy - and living. You returned home to take care of yourself - taxes and Jenny. I hope you have some peace during this very difficult time - and hoping Dad is at peace and out of pain - Hopefully the hospital is helping him get relief. Big Cyber Hug! Sue

    I am so sorry to hear about your father. I totally understand that long-term illness makes it even harder to know what to do. You can't possibly hop on a plane every time there is a health challenge - or you would be flying back and forth all the time which makes it hard to juggle all your other responsibilities. We haven't heard from you in a while... so I hope that everything is okay...

    So glad I read this blog it was the encouragement I needed to try again thank you all

    I really like the encouragement at JC and the reminder to "get deep into it" and "read it over and over again" and "do it over and over again." Because, that is really what happens to people who have reached their goals: they fall off, gain weight and then get back on and find a program that works and maybe cycle through but then "get deep into" and "do it." I am in month 4 and have gained and lost the same weight for the last month and a half. But, after reading the above advice, I'm just going to reread the program and diet and recommit to it. Thank goodness for all the great advice that we can find here!

    Angela, Faith, trust, discipline and lean on your support team. You need to have some faith in yourself. Others have been where you are and they have successfully navigated the many pitfalls that you are experiencing. You can do this...others have...so can you. You are not alone. Trust JC. This program works...but you need to get deep into it. Read it over and over again. Do it over and over again. One day at a time. Just do day one...no cheating...then when you finish...do day two. It takes about 10 days for a new routine to set in and become habit forming...make it 10 days and see what happens. Live it. Show that you have the courage and discipline to achieve your goal. Discipline is hard...but you have to ask yourself (when tempted)...do you want to feel like you are feeling now. Have the courage and discipline to say NO! When times get tough lean on your support team at home and with JC. Be positive and put a positive spin on this. You can do this...and should look forward to your new journey and what it will be like when you get to your destination. We are all here to help. V/r Tom R
