After writing my first blog, I never visited this community part of the Jenny Craig website again until recently. Even though I still have lots to go in my journey, I have come to realize something important about weight-loss: weight-loss is a lifestyle change, and not just a diet. When I am on Jenny Craig now, I am no longer picky about the food items I want to replace, or mixing and matching ideas to satisfy my cravings for food. I no longer fuss over how quickly I want my results or how far I still am from my (what seems like forever never-ending) final goal. Weight-loss is about a change of MIND. Now when I am losing weight, I see it not because I want to be skinny and good-looking anymore, but because I am improving self-control and self-restriction. In life we cannot have everything we want, and this is just another part of it. I truly believe that the willpower against your desires is a blessing to be practiced everyday. So I am now taking weight-loss slowly, one step at a time
I'm so ready to start this journey for a second time around. Reached 55 and have been struggling with weight gain. So this time around I'm sticking with this and going to start feeling good again. With new activities and getting more involved with the process.
Heard this on Friday afternoon (when I rejoined Jenny) and every day since Ive repeated it to myself a few times a day ... PROGRESSION... NOT PERFECTION It felt profound hearing it but it makes so much sense. It's applicable to anything in your life - weight loss, transitioning in a new job, spiritual walk... the list goes on and on. I'll touch on Weightloss for now... So we are all (mostly) here to improve our lifestyle. Whether it's more exercise, or less calories we have something we are trying to improve in order to achieve our goal(s). Every step in our journey brings us closer to our goal - including the slip ups. One of my friends defined success as "a bunch of small good decisions made over time". Our weightloss journey is very similar. Every day that we follow our program puts us that much closer to the results we are looking for. When we read the blogs and forum posts about 100 pounds down in a year! We all get excited and we all (most of us) want to read how the person did it - and immediately calculate the average monthly/weekly loss to determine if we could have similar results. Yeah dont' pretend you've never done it We all have, some more than others. ... Back to the point... so when we read those stories we should really read the underlying story that over 12 months they kept with a program. On day one, did the successor KNOW they'd be 100 pounds lighter and enjoying their new life? Maybe, maybe not, but for 52 weeks/ 365 days they made small good decisions... Those small decisions made routinely (progression) ... resulted in their success. It wasnt about being perfect every day, but consistently mindful of the goal at hand... Here's to progression, not perfection
