    Once again back on Jenny

    Hey yeah guys, It's been forever since I posted this is my new blog, hopefully I keep at it with this. I'm going back to Jenny tomorrow and starting on Sunday. I've done this program so many times that hopefully this is the last time that I'm on it. I'm gonna work my butt off to be able to keep off this weight because, I'm so tired of the heartburn and being tired all the time. Can't wait to start this journey again and hopefully for the last time. Praying this works, so they say 3 times the charm that it works? about 5th time?? I'll see you guys in a week!
  2. It's one month. My scale continues to move downward. But I really try not to focus on the scale this time around. I'm trying to focus on what's getting me through and helping me to move forward in my journey to be fit n fabulous. ....I like how I wrote that down - that I don't focus on the scale. WHO AM I KIDDING? I'M ON A WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM, OF COURSE I CHECK THE SCALE. So many people probably do that: write down BS to make it seem like they're really being a good girl. Online/social media allows us to do that without accountability. Actually, I look at the scale every morning and every night. It's what makes me accountable and shows me what foods make me go up or down the scale. So far, all's well and good and the scale moves down every week. I learned how to use the scale to monitor my food when I was on a pre-JC plan [Back in the day - on LA WL, if anyone remembers that program - when we would weigh in twice a week to check what foods moved the scale.] I also try focus as much as I can on understanding what works and doesn't this time around so I don't return to square 1 again. I take all that I've learned in the past and apply the good things to what I'm doing now. I've never had this focus before. So many things seemed to be in the way, I said. It's true - if we want to make it true. We all can have something in the way. I used excuses like kids, work, college, moving, husband's work stressors, my health. I was so in control of the other items in my life. I had an innate ability to juggle many things at once. I was known for it - employers sought me out because of my ability to handle the stress. But I could never get in control of weight. It was my crutch and my comfort to escape by eating and watching tv. It was also my comfort to eat at good restaurants or order take-out during a late work night. After all, I deserved it. And then I'd hate myself for not being able to stay in control. Sound familiar? I bet it is for most of us. Funny, how that isn't what's going on for me today. I actually want to eat healthy. I enjoy discovering new ways to make veges to go with my JC food. This time, it's actually fun! I wish you could understand that, for me, enjoying eating and creating dishes is a very very big deal. Being raised in a German household on "meat and potatoes," I had a love/hate relationship with vegetables and "healthy" food. Today, I really don't know what clicked, but I don't have a hate relationship with food. I actually am enjoying it! If this is you, what's getting you through it?
  3. Previously, I preferred to look at the world through rose-colored glasses. "All will be ok and I will be fine." Well, since we're all here together, you can see where that got me. I've been on a journey. To find myself and move forward...with myself...regardless of what is in my way. It's been a journey that started about 5 years ago. I had many life situations that happened around me, affecting me, but not about me. I tried to help, nuture, parent, be a good daughter, be a good friend, excel in my job, help finance people's problems. I did this while trying to complete my college degree. It was the first big thing in my life that I've accomplished. I am the only person in my immediate family to complete college. Then all went downhill and I finally hit a wall. Everything I thought was good was not. Everything I thought I could fix, could not be fixed. I made a decision then to stop looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. So now, I'm calling myself a newbie realist. This comes to me now because I FINALLY stopped looking at my weight loss through those rose-colored glasses. I stopped thinking that eating more than one item off plan was going to be ok. It's not going to be ok if I want to get to goal. I also stopped thinking that if I don't do some sort of exercise, I'll still lose weight when I get closer to goal. Am I near goal now - HECK NO! But I now realize if I don't start something now, I won't get into a groove, making it an every-day occurrence later in my journey. I also made a commitment to get to the real goal - not a goal that I feel is ok because I can't envision me weighing less. So... not 30 pounds less - the real goal is 75 pounds less and I'M GOING TO GET THERE. I also realize that I'm not going to lose 75 pounds overnight. I'm over 55 and it's most likely going to go slow. Bummer. But it's real. I've realized that I can't do this alone, but I really don't have have much home support. Bummer again. But it's real. Life is real. I will have to deal with this the rest of my life. It's not a "get thin quick" program for me. It's a "make it stick" program. My consultant is amazing. I lean on her when I have to. She's given me so much help and information. I also lean on reading the blogs and forums. This was never something I did - documenting my feelings or writing down what I ate. I'm actually shocked I'm doing it! But I am doing it. Hands up for the Realist!

    My Future Goals - My Wish List

    I'm writing this here now. My future goals. I don't want to overwhelm myself with all I want to accomplish at once. So, I'm putting this in writing to remind myself what I would love to accomplish as I get healthier. Later in my journey, I want to view this and see how far I've come. This year's goal was to get my physical health in order. I'm on my way. I've been working with doctors to make sure my health is in check. They're actually listening to me! Now I have no excuses as to why I can't lose weight - not even menopause. Enter Jenny Craig. So here's the rest on my wish list: getting to 10% documenting my journey walking the neighborhood with my dogs (they're not good walkers right now) making exercise part of breathing - doing it every day completing the Adirondack Fire Tower Challenge (1 down, 28 to go!) Hiking the beginner to mid-level mountains of the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondacks (many are expert level hikes) learning to enjoy food reaching 75 lb weight loss goal before Summer 2018

    Captain's Log - Beginning my Journey

    So... here I am. I'm not new to this. In fact, I probably could become a weight loss consultant myself! This is my third time being back at Jenny Craig. If anything, I'm consistent at returning. But why am I here ... again? Well, if you're like me, you've tried everything and anything on the planet to lose weight and keep it off. You would get so far- seem "ok" with your success; stop the program and then gain it all back.... and sometimes gain more weight than when you last started. You've been so desperate at times, you were willing to sacrifice everything just to lose the weight you've always wanted. Perhaps, like me, you've never been thin. You can't imagine ever being thin .... but you want to be there....thin, healthy, happy, active. Perhaps, like me, you've resigned yourself to always being a "big gal/guy." Perhaps, like me, you've become mad, annoyed, angry (or hangry) saying to yourself - "WHY AM I TRYING TO CONFORM TO WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT? I think I'm healthy - so what if I'm overweight? I'm trying to love myself for who I am. I think I look sexy. My clothes look just fine on me." You become resentful of the weight loss people trying to give you rules and making you follow a program. You hate yourself because you've gotten to this point. You stop following the program. You lie to your consultant and say it's all good, then quit. You tell yourself you can do it on your own. Ok. Who am I kidding? I know I'll never be happy until I reach my goal. It's unfinished business for me. It has been for more than 30 years. Today, I'm more than 60 pounds overweight. This IS a challenge. This IS hard, at times. I know can all do it, but not initially on my own. I need to lean on other like-minded people, like my consultant and JC threads to get through the initial phase. I need to recognize that, right now, I don't have the wherewithal to do it myself. Which is why I all got smart and came back to Jenny Craig for the third time. I know it works. I just need to get to the finish line. Check back with me in a few weeks. I want to make sure I remember I wrote this after my first week of "Third Time's a Charm." I'm hopeful that I'll keep up this momentum.

    Looking in the mirror

    A few weeks ago, I had an epiphany. I took a long, hard look in the mirror and didn't recognize myself. What happened to me? Not only had my body changed drastically in a short amount of time, but even my face. It wasn't just the shape that changed. I no longer had the high cheeks bones that made people compliment my bone structure. I also realized that not only did I have a few more chins, but my neck was pretty much invisible. My cheeks were puffy; and I realized, mannn I am blown up like a balloon. One thing that I had always taken pride in was the way I did my hair and makeup. I had always gotten compliments, always had people ask me to do theirs.. but recently, not so much. Maybe that was because somewhere along the line I had given up on myself once I started gaining weight. I stopped doing my hair and makeup- I still don't know whether it was because I became so lazy I didn't want to do it, or I just stopped caring in general. Probably a combination of both. All this time I have gained weight, I have completely voided out any chance of a social life. I had become introverted. Plans with friends were no longer of any interest to me because everything revolved around eating and drinking and I just didn't want to be a part of it. I went from having plans and being invited out to eat every other weekend to being the "old friend of theirs" who never came out anymore. I made up every excuse in the book to not go out because I was so ashamed of how fat I got. It was only three years ago that I had a nice, thin figure. Thanks to Jenny Craig. You see, weight has always been an issue for me, even since childhood. I have tried various diets throughout the years and didn't know why the numbers on the scale were always fluctuating. I have had issues with my health since I was a young teen. Finally being diagnosed with hypothyroid disease was what made me realize why I was struggling so much- on every diet I tried. Why was I gaining on a diet and not losing? After I was finally put on medication to get my thyroid levels regulated, I was ready to get on track and take the reigns. I found Jenny and realized she was the only one for me When I went on Jenny Craig the first time, it was a total success. I had lost around 40 lbs in a very short amount of time. I was so proud of myself and I got down to about 147 lbs (totally forgot the statistics lol). I looked great, felt great and fit into clothing that I hadn't worn in a very long time. I did not reach my goal because I was having more health issues and just couldn't keep an appointment if I tried. Not too long after my big weight loss I became pregnant. That is when everything I learned at Jenny went out the window and I thought I had an excuse to eat everything and anything I wanted. I gained 70 lbs during my pregnancy. No I did not have quints, quadruplets, triplets or twins. I had one baby.... and no, the placenta nor baby weighed 70 lbs. So why, do you ask, did I gain all that weight? It was simply because I lost all willpower and self control. Thank goodness towards the end of my pregnancy I realized I could have easily developed gestational diabetes and my poor diet could have harmed the little miracle inside of me; so I immediately switched gears and ate right, but I didn't lose any weight it was just stagnant at that point. The day after I gave birth I said "I'm gonna get my body back and I'll do everything I can to do so"... I didn't. Instead I gained another 30 lbs... and now, years later... I am looking in the mirror and realizing that this is the example I am setting as a mother. Your child will look at you and think you are perfect the way you are even if you are an unhealthy weight whether it be obese or too thin. They do not know better. Children pick up on habits very easily and quickly. I did go back a second time to Jenny, but only for a hot minute. I decided that I was not eating the food or following the program as I should so why waste the money. Since then I have given myself a long list of health problems and I am fairly too young to have them. Other than high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, I have a very fatty liver and the fat enzymes are leaking into my liver. I have additional back, hip, and leg problems with pain due to the extra weight I carry. All because I didn't take care of myself. My family is the reason I am doing this. Not because I want to look good in photos again, or to become social again, or even to be happy looking in the mirror again, Those are all a plus. I want to be able to live a long, happy healthy life with my child and I want to be able to be a regular mom doing regular mom things without getting out of breath. That's all I want. Hopefully third time's the charm... I'm back on the program for about three weeks. I have lost 10.6 lbs so far and I am more enthusiastic and excited than I have ever been before. I know it's too soon to actually see a change; but I sure do feel one. I look in the mirror now and I envision what I could be, what I will be; if I can just give up being so controlled by my emotional eating. I am no longer going to eat my emotions: happy, sad, angry, bored, excited, anxious, etc. What I am going to eat are the words I have said all too much: I can't do this. I was a martial artist for 11 years from childhood to teenhood. (It kept me in shape and active until I stopped going; [that's a good topic for another blog]...) One thing that my Shihan told me that applies to everything in life will always stick with me: Do not say you can't do something. Can And Never Tried.

    I'm back

    ​ ​ Hi, my name is Renee and I am 29 years old. I have returned after 3 years and I find this time around its a bit more difficult than doing it the first time. I find myself wanting to eat "regular foods" but I know if I do, it will delay my weight loss process. I am trying to deal as best as I can buttttt its soooo hard. Especially with new surroundings! The easiest part is not drinking while on the program! However, I am proud of myself because this time around I am in the gym at least 3x a week *pats self on the back* ​ I know will be all worth it in the end because by my cruise in August, I will be looking absolutely fabulous!
