  1. Went to JC on Thursday instead of Wednesday because the roads are so bad here!! Still pretty yucky today, but I was starving and had no food. I was nervous after my 'meh' 0.5 loss last week (I know..I know..a loss is a loss, but I have A LOT to lose). I lost 2.3 pounds today - yippeeee!! And am FINALLY in the 260's! That makes a total loss of 19.6 pounds Next week I get my measurements, so I'm hoping that I lost some good inches too these last 3 weeks. Not much more to say this week, other than that I'm well on my way to completing my November goal! 2.7 pounds to go! I just bought the parmesan crusted fish, haven't tried it yet, but hopefully it is yummy. I hope you all had a fantastic week (:
  2. Well, I was a bit late on my fifth week blog post, but I was feeling a little discouraged this week. On my weekly Wednesday weigh in I was only down 0.5 pounds this week! Not feeling too great about that, but I guess it is better than a gain! I had a not so good eating day yesterday either. My friend ordered pizza (yikes not good), so I had a slice as I was starving and didn't have time to eat my dinner with the school work I had going on for the day (I know, still not a good excuse). Here is my biggest problem: I haven't told any of my friends that I am on jenny craig or trying to lose weight and my family/friends do not have very good eating habits that is for sure. Why do I not tell them you may ask? It is not exactly that I am embarrassed because really I should be proud that I am trying to do something with my weight and what not. I just feel like I don't want to make my weight loss a big deal to everyone..if that makes sense. I want to continue on with my day without people asking, "Oh we are going to eat ___, I hope you don't get tempted, I'm sorry" or have anyone feel bad about eating something that I can't have. I know it is weird of me, but I am just satisfied with saying no. I have been really good about not feeding into my friends temptations with all of the yummy food that they eat (I am trying to not look at it as yummy anymore because jenny craig food is delish), but I fell into my bad ways last night. I am going to be 100% strict from now on because I have this month to do really well because I am sure December is not going to be a great weight loss month (but I am going to try my best ). Anyway, that is my little rant for the day. I hope you all had a better weight loss than I did - and hopefully I have a better weight loss next week!!!! p.s my weight loss goal for november is 265! I am at 270.2 - almost made my October goal, but not quite - so I hopefully I make this goal all the way and more!!

    I Need To Put Up Or Shut Up...

    So, this past weigh in I was a bit disappointed with my result. It was my own fault. I had hoped for more and did not get it. But there was a silver lining. I felt the positive outcome was this part: "It is all up to me how next week turns out. If I am not happy with the loss from this week, I need to change something that I did or did not do. There is no one to take the responsibility for how I feel at weigh in except me. I own my actions. I own my results." Since I rather don't like the taste of crow I hopped up on my treadmill yesterday for the first time in a long time. Forty minutes, and quite a bit of sweat later, I turned off "The Matrix" and went to take a shower. I was proud that I had upped the ante by using an incline of 7 during the faster 30 min portion whereas I used to only use an incline of 1 or 2. Now to be fair to those who work REALLY hard, my definition of "fast" is not truly fast to most. I do a speed of 2.5mph right now. My right side is significantly weaker than my left (gotta love the effects of MS) so I am always playing a game of catch up with that side. Maybe someday I will be able to go at a decent pace...but that's a task for another day. But anyway you look at it, I challenged myself. I broke a sweat. I got off the couch. Today's task? Today is a 45 min group lesson in Cha Cha and Tango. Friday? 2 hour Halloween social ballroom dance. What do YOU have planned for physical activity? Do something fun!
  4. Week 4 is over woo! Every week makes me jump with joy because of the fact that I am one step closer to my goal. I also learned an important lesson this week, as you can tell by my entry title. I was so stressed this week because I have had so many tests and huge projects that have been due, therefore my eating/exercise/sleeping patterns haven't been the best. I was pulling all nighters, constantly starving. Therefore my meals were not as spaced out as they should have been. (There was even one day when I had two snacks in one day, yikes not the best choice). Anyway, with all my stresses, I didn't make time for exercise and honestly I was starting to feel a bit under the weather (It's a winter wonderland right now here in Alberta, Canada! ), probably from the allnighters and bad habits of the week. I was so worried to weigh in thinking that I didn't lose weight or even gained as I fell into the death trap of weighing myself near the end middleish of the week. Well, I weighed in today and I lost 3.1 pounds yippeeeeee!!! I also got my measurements done and I have lost 7 inches since I've started! That was some really hardcore motivational news that I needed to hear. To think that I was almost going to reschedule my weigh in over something so silly!! This made me realize who cares if I had one semi-bad week? There is no reason to sit here and make myself worried over something I can't change, I just have to pick myself back up again. Next week I'm going to be better and work harder to be more on plan. With everything that went on this week I'm so happy to almost hit the 20 pound mark and at this rate next week I should make my goal for October - being in the 260 range!! I hope (and know!!) that everyone has/had a fantastic weigh in this week!! Don't give up! And my most important advice that I deffs should have listened to a long time ago is never weigh yourself during the week. From now on I am going to wait for my JCC to do it so I don't get so worked up over it. -Jess

    It's all up to me...

    So, I had my weigh in today. I had an initial feeling of disappointment. I lost less than the previous 2 weeks. I lost 3 pounds the first 2 weeks. This week I lost 2 pounds. I know a loss is a loss and I should be happy with any loss. No matter how I felt when I initially found out my loss I have come to a conclusion. I feel this is the important part of the day. It is all up to me how next week turns out. If I am not happy with the loss from this week, I need to change something that I did or did not do. There is no one to take the responsibility for how I feel at weigh in except me. I own my actions. I own my results. So, I think this is a very positive outcome. Not only did I lose 2 pounds (which realistically is a great thing), but I have faced up to my responsibilities in this journey. So, since I was somewhat disappointed today I see an increase of exercise in my immediate future. ::grin:: I know my reaction was not what it should have been, but there's just no controlling the illogical brain sometimes...lol. Why is it so easy to say things to others but then so difficult to follow that same advice sometimes?
  6. Tuesday = Weigh in day. Normally I would fear this day. On JC I am learning to love weigh in day. I went in for my weigh in this morning. Down 3 pounds exactly! YIPPEE! I probably cannot expect this kind of success every time but I will enjoy it while it lasts. So, kudos to JC! I am losing while eating food I enjoy. Awesomeness! Right now I am celebrating with my breakfast of cinnamon rolls and milk. Ah, the sweet taste of success. <snicker> I hope everyone has as great a week as I had!
  7. Well, I just got home from Jenny Craig and I lost another 1.5 pounds! At first, I was a little disappointed because I had such a good loss last week and after all my hard work I couldn't help but say 'that's it!!!'. Then I remembered that I still lost weight and I am a little lighter this week than I was last week. Last weekend was thanksgiving, so I know my weigh in wasn't going to be the best that it could be, but I exercised pretty hard everyday this week. I'm hoping by next wednesday I will lose even more and be even closer to my goal. I'm surprised at how fast these two weeks have flied by! I got my food for the week and I must say those pumpkin spice cakes look DELICIOUS! How are all of you enjoying the new fall foods? The centre here in Calgary haven't received the new mains, only the barscotti and cakes. I'm going for my walk now and I hope all of you had/have a fabulous weigh in!! (: -Jess p.s I forgot to mention that in two weeks I have now lost 10.5 pounds! Wooo.

    Mixed emotions on weigh in

    ​​So, I had my first weigh in today. I lost 3.2 pounds. I am unsure how I feel about it. Due to schedule conflicts my weigh in was 1 week and 5 days from my start date. So, almost 2 weeks for a little over 3 pounds. Before joining JC I was losing on weight watchers so it is only natural that I did not have a big loss of water weight. I joined JC because my husband (he lost 11 pounds!) is doing it and it is easier to do the same plan as your spouse. I know I will be grateful for the loss in time and lose the disappointment. So, I will just move forward and be happy about my success. My husband and I celebrated our weigh in by going to our tai chi center and we had a great work out. I feel accomplished and relaxed. Tomorrow is my appointment with my neurologist and then an infusion where I get pumped full of over $3000 worth of drugs. MS patients are NOT cheap for insurance companies to cover. Thursday is our ballroom dance lesson in Tango. Friday is our ballroom social dance. Whew! I have a full week planned. And I am working all week as well. Overall I am trying to be realistic about my weigh in and not get too down about it. The fact of the matter is that I had a loss. That is good news. Unless I want to go live in a doghouse in the backyard I need to stop whining. Cripes, I just called myself a dog.
  9. In my many experiences in the dieting world, week 1 weigh-in is like a pep rally before a high school football game. There is a lot of excitement, clapping, cheering and it’s a great kick-off to the long months ahead of hard work. During the ‘season’ of weight loss, there will be wins (losses) and losses (gains), but that first week is an exciting jumpstart and a promise of a bright season ahead. My week 1 weigh-in this time around was especially peppy. I was down 9.2 pounds. My counselor literally said “That’s not possible.” To which I replied “Oh, it’s very possible.” Why is it possible to lose 9.2 pounds in a matter of days? Did I ingest a tape worm? Did I cheat and starve for the entire week? Did I enter into a Paltro-esque cleanse? No dear friends. I just followed Jenny to the tee. But seriously, 9.2 in a week is kind of crazy, right? There is a very reasonable explanation for all of this. I call it, the Last Supper. Anyone who has ever started on a new diet knows exactly what I’m talking about. The Last Supper is a dieters time-honored tradition of stuffing your face one last time before the diet forces you into a life of submission, treadmills and carrot sticks, oh my! This particular time around, however, my “Last Supper” extended way passed one night of wild abandon, and could better be described as “The Last Month-long FEAST.” I had set my Jenny start date weeks ago. You know the old adage of “I’ll start after the summer is over.” The last few weeks have been what I imagine heaven is like – eating without a care in the world, consuming foods that most people only dream about. No food was off limits. Ice cream, cookies, regular (!) beer, wine, bagels, NUTELLA! My food journal was like reading an entry out of Paula Deen’s cookbook (pre-diabetic reform). However, in my fantasies of heaven, the 30 pounds I racked up in this short period of time (no, I’m not exaggerating), don’t actually happen. Reality is a lot less fun (should really try to remember this.) So when the scale showed a miraculous 9.2 loss in week 1, I wasn’t shocked. You see, the week before I had jumped on the scale just hours after my bender had reached its finale. I was so bloated, I’m sure I resembled a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloon. I was retaining water like a sea sponge. So when that first Monday rolled around and I cracked open the plastic to my first Cinnamon French Toast, my body said “Remind me again, why are we holding onto so much water?” So yes, I know that the 9.2 lbs was just water weight and my body going into serious shock of not eating Nutella as an appetizer before breakfast, lunch and dinner, but, I’ll take it baby! I know in the weeks ahead, unless a major organ or limb is removed, another 9.2 lb weight loss is not in the cards. I’m okay with that (I like my organs). That first week was the Pep Rally I needed for the long season ahead. (Besides, although the Triple Chocolate Cheesecake is no Nutella drenched bagel, it’s really danged good!) Rah Rah!
