    Hey Guys - Wanted to post a picture of me at a lower weight when I started dating 6 months ago. I was still a little high for my maintenance but not where I am today. So as I embark on Jenny now - with the goal to get back down to my lower goal I wanted to see what I am shooting for. Net-net I am proud of how I look today - and of the weight loss. Sure I want to get back down to have wiggle room and fit into my smaller clothes. But seeing this picture - and I know I am not a size 24W and at Lane Bryant (Bless their hearts - they really have a fantastic store for me back in the day so I am grateful they are in business). But I am grateful I only have 10-15 lbs to lose now and sooo happy I know how and know we can do this Thank you all for your support! This forum is a ton helpful for me. So I do apologize for a keeping it real and personal and being long-winded. But hey we used to spend a lot of time eating... now we can read and write. Here's the picture of me yesterday (In shorts) at my JCC Center). This is my before shot for this go-around at about 155 .... and the picture of me in Black is at about 145-147 back from the date where Greg and I got to know each other in San Antonio and Austin. Let's do this. I am looking forward to a fantastic after shot in a couple of months or even before I start my job in 2 weeks - maybe a progress shot? OK so here's the updated progress week 2.. seems crazy that so much stuff fits better - it's officially on jenny scale 3.6lbs but I feel better,. No dating or happy hours. No alcohol, no job right now (i start Monday) and only 1 party where I had club soda and not too much food. Anyway, this morning scale said 150.5 which is what it said the ay I weighed in at Jenny - so same as Wednesday, I guess now it will move slow maybe. But also I'm using new muscles in my gold lessons and practice.. so I feel better, Check out my Before and After if you want inspiration was I am sure my small weight loss is not that inspiring. But the real deal was when I went from 207 to 137 starting in August of 2016.. Now I have luxury problems - but for a lifelong compulsive overeater it's super important to get back to having a better relationship with food and not gaining,! Here's the July 2018 shot where I am trying to get back to... or even before that when my weight was at the low end of my goal... for wiggle room

    First week into the program and I have lost 6 pounds! I know the rate of weight loss will slow down and that is okay; I have lost weight and gained a few times over the past 10 years. This might be a long story but I am asking that you read this to the end with the hope that it will encourage someone and maybe give me some encouragement also. I have been on Slim-Fast, Nutri-System and Weight Watchers. I am the heaviest now then I have ever been. Day one of Jenny Craig - 188 lbs and 5'2". One week later - 182 lbs. I am almost 41, married for 18 years and have 2 kids. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. There was quite a bit of traffic tonight on the way home tonight; so that gave me sometime to think. I was trying to figure out how my weight plummetted to 188 lbs. I can't say that my weight started becoming out of control; it was me. My son was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4. This was 7 years ago. This was truly a shock for me. I suspected he had ADHD, but never autism. Anyways, I was desperately searching for everything and anything that could help him. I was strained. My marriage was getting strained. It was around this time that I slowly began to gain the weight. I was not taking care of myself. Also, I began to have a glass of wine at night which soon grew into 3 or 4 glasses every night. Well, you know the saying, days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months and months turn into years. Not paying attention to my health had brought me to 188 lbs which I was just one week ago. I also need to mention that I started Jenny Craig just 2 days after my mother-in-law passed away of a heart attack. She had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. My parents were so worried about me that they offered to pay for Jenny Craig if I would like to do the program. I accepted their offer. I realized that my time to lose the weight and get healthier was now. I could not put it off anymore. I need to be here for my children for a long time. And so, this is the beginning of my journey...
