â€‹â€‹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.
Hello. My name is Shannon. I am new to Jenny Craig. I am going to be keeping a record of my journey here. It will include my victories, challenges and even my failures. I expect to have all of these because that is life. Hopefully, even my failures will be victories because they will be learning experiences. The title of my blog refers to one of my favorite self-quotes. "Having MS is like having a new puppy in the house. You can lay down all the rules you want but sooner or later, someone is going to pee on the carpet." Yes, I have MS (multiple sclerosis). So, some of the challenges I will face with my eating and exercise plan will likely come from this. But my years with the disease have given me a theory towards life: Accept, Overcome, Adapt, and Excel. Accept what life gives you. (there is no cure for MS...no amount of crying will change that for me) Overcome what you can. (certain abilities can be relearned or will come back under certain circumstances) Adapt to what you cannot totally overcome. (what will not come back can be altered to work in a different way) Excel under your new circumstances. (there is no excuse for not trying to do my best) My first weigh in will be tomorrow. I am worried like everyone probably is on their first time. My husband is doing the plan with me and I know he is going to do great. We both have followed the plan to the letter. However, I had already been doing weight watchers so I won't have the usual water weight loss. I did get exercise though. Hubby and I had two dance lessons. We did beginner's bachata and pseudo-intermediate cha cha. I guess I should be happy if I lose a pound of two. I am just nervous because I don't feel like I have lost anything. Please feel free to stop by and see how I am doing and drop off words of encouragement. I am sure I am going to hit times where I need them desperately. Have a great no pee on the carpet kind of day!
