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
In the beginning...wait this is the beginning - of my new life! I signed up for JC yesterday. Won't receive my shipment until Wednesday, won't speak with my consultant until Thursday - but wanted to get my beginning thoughts out of my head. I'm scared - really scared. I won't fail again. I've gotten myself into a real jackpot here. I'm embarrassed how I look. I spend more time thinking about how I look and how I'm going to get from point A to B than what I will actually do at point B. I've become "that person." I never have any energy, I'm out of breath just cutting the grass, I don't leave my house - except for work. I've worked for myself for years, with my office at home. Now I've landed my dream job, but I don't have my dream body to go with it. I miss my husband. he passed away almost four years ago. I've not moved on from losing him. I am just wrapping my arms around the fact that he is OK with me moving on with my life. I need a lot of support. I'm not letting anyone in my life know I joined JC. Two reasons, they will watch every move I make and it's expensive. I don't want to hear it from any of them. I've done the math - I will spend less money on JC food then I do on filling the hole in my belly - a hole that is never filled.
As the LAST day of 2012 becomes my FIRST day of Jenny Craig, I am very excited to begin my JOURNEY WITH JENNY!! After seeing some photos that were made at Christmas I decided that I needed to do something. My husband is giving up smoking, which is extremely difficult for him. My encouragement for him to make this change was so we can have a long healthy life together. He is encouraging me with the same words. We both know that smoking and being overweight are not good for us so we have made these decisions and, with God's help, are going to succeed!! I am very excited to begin eating Jenny Craig healthy food today. I even started this past weekend by making healthier choices with regular food, but today begins the Jenny food. I look forward to seeing the results even as soon as next week with my first meeting with my consultant after my first week with the Jenny food. I am going to try to keep a written journal with high points, successes and even struggles. So when I found this 'Blog' option on the website I was more excited. I hope to make entries a few time a week. So if you have chosen to read this, I hope you find it uplifting and encouraging. I may even decide to add some personal info about my life. So here goes. I am ready to get the journey started. ~cindy~
Almost four months ago now, I married my best friend! I was so proud of how many times the dress was altered (smaller!) and ecstatic about how the pictures turned out! (a corset can do wonders, my friend!) Then came the all-inclusive honeymoon! We had a fabulous time, but from day one, I knew the fabulous food and copious amounts of St Lucian rum were not going to be a friend of the scale's when I got home. But I felt fabulous, even wore a bikini with confidence for the first time in a while and gave myself a pass. I was on my honeymoon after all! I seem to recall a lot of chatter about the freshman 15 when I went off to college, riddled with many a warnings from my big sis to watch out! What I don't remember were any warnings of the love chub I've now acquired so quickly after the BEST DAY EVER! (you dropped the ball on that one sis!) Now, I wouldn't be caught in a bikini and I'm curse the St Lucian rum. The pants that needed a belt six months ago, now need an extra button ... and I'm terrified to even attempt the big white dress in my closet. So tomorrow's the day I start it right. No stress diets or dress to fit into. Just me and Jenny! Adios rum tum!
