    Great Facebook Post

    his young woman called Holly Butcher posted her advice to the world, 24 hours before she died of cancer. This was her message... “It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts. That’s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right. I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands. I haven’t started this ‘note before I die’ so that death is feared – I like the fact that we are mostly ignorant to it’s inevitability.. Except when I want to talk about it and it is treated like a ‘taboo’ topic that will never happen to any of us.. That’s been a bit tough. I just want people to stop worrying so much about the small, meaningless stresses in life and try to remember that we all have the same fate after it all so do what you can to make your time feel worthy and great, minus the bullshit. I have dropped lots of my thoughts below as I have had a lot of time to ponder life these last few months. Of course it’s the middle of the night when these random things pop in my head most! 1) Those times you are whinging about ridiculous things (something I have noticed so much these past few months), just think about someone who is really facing a problem. Be grateful for your minor issue and get over it. It’s okay to acknowledge that something is annoying but try not to carry on about it and negatively effect other people’s days. 2) Once you do that, get out there and take a freaking big breath of that fresh Aussie air deep in your lungs, look at how blue the sky is and how green the trees are; It is so beautiful. Think how lucky you are to be able to do just that – breathe. 3) You might have got caught in bad traffic today, or had a bad sleep because your beautiful babies kept you awake, or your hairdresser cut your hair too short. Your new fake nails might have got a chip, your boobs are too small, or you have cellulite on your arse and your belly is wobbling. Let all that **** go.. I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go. It is all SO insignificant when you look at life as a whole. I’m watching my body waste away right before my eyes with nothing I can do about it and all I wish for now is that I could have just one more Birthday or Christmas with my family, or just one more day with my partner and dog. Just one more. 4) I hear people complaining about how terrible work is or about how hard it is to exercise – Be grateful you are physically able to. Work and exercise may seem like such trivial things … until your body doesn’t allow you to do either of them. I tried to live a healthy life, in fact, that was probably my major passion. Appreciate your good health and functioning body- even if it isn’t your ideal size. Look after it and embrace how amazing it is. Move it and nourish it with fresh food. Don’t obsess over it. 5) Remember there are more aspects to good health than the physical body.. work just as hard on finding your mental, emotional and spiritual happiness too. That way you might realise just how insignificant and unimportant having this stupidly portrayed perfect social media body really is.. While on this topic, delete any account that pops up on your news feeds that gives you any sense of feeling **** about yourself. Friend or not.. Be ruthless for your own well-being. 6) Be grateful for each day you don’t have pain and even the days where you are unwell with man flu, a sore back or a sprained ankle, accept it is **** but be thankful it isn’t life threatening and will go away. 7) Whinge less, people! .. And help each other more. 😎 Give, give, give. It is true that you gain more happiness doing things for others than doing them for yourself. I wish I did this more. Since I have been sick, I have met the most incredibly giving and kind people and been the receiver of the most thoughtful and loving words and support from my family, friends and strangers; More than I could I ever give in return. I will never forget this and will be forever grateful to all of these people. 9) It is a weird thing having money to spend at the end.. when you’re dying. It’s not a time you go out and buy material things that you usually would, like a new dress. It makes you think how silly it is that we think it is worth spending so much money on new clothes and ‘things’ in our lives. Buy your friend something kind instead of another dress, beauty product or jewellery for that next wedding. 1. No-one cares if you wear the same thing twice 2. It feels good. Take them out for a meal, or better yet, cook them a meal. Shout their coffee. Give/ buy them a plant, a massage or a candle and tell them you love them when you give it to them. 10) Value other people’s time. Don’t keep them waiting because you are **** at being on time. Get ready earlier if you are one of those people and appreciate that your friends want to share their time with you, not sit by themselves, waiting on a mate. You will gain respect too! Amen sister. 11) This year, our family agreed to do no presents and despite the tree looking rather sad and empty (I nearly cracked Christmas Eve!), it was so nice because people didn’t have the pressure of shopping and the effort went into writing a nice card for each other. Plus imagine my family trying to buy me a present knowing they would probably end up with it themselves.. strange! It might seem lame but those cards mean more to me than any impulse purchase could. Mind you, it was also easier to do in our house because we had no little kiddies there. Anyway, moral of the story- presents are not needed for a meaningful Christmas. Moving on. 12) Use your money on experiences.. Or at least don’t miss out on experiences because you spent all your money on material ****. 13) Put in the effort to do that day trip to the beach you keep putting off. Dip your feet in the water and dig your toes in the sand. Wet your face with salt water. 14) Get amongst nature. 15) Try just enjoying and being in moments rather than capturing them through the screen of your phone. Life isn’t meant to be lived through a screen nor is it about getting the perfect photo.. enjoy the bloody moment, people! Stop trying to capture it for everyone else. Random rhetorical question. Are those several hours you spend doing your hair and make up each day or to go out for one night really worth it? I’ve never understood this about females 🤔. 16) Get up early sometimes and listen to the birds while you watch the beautiful colours the sun makes as it rises. 17) Listen to music.. really listen. Music is therapy. Old is best. 18) Cuddle your dog. Far out, I will miss that. 19) Talk to your friends. Put down your phone. Are they doing okay? 20) Travel if it’s your desire, don’t if it’s not. 21) Work to live, don’t live to work. Seriously, do what makes your heart feel happy. 22) Eat the cake. Zero guilt. 23) Say no to things you really don’t want to do. 24) Don’t feel pressured to do what other people might think is a fulfilling life.. you might want a mediocre life and that is so okay. 25) Tell your loved ones you love them every time you get the chance and love them with everything you have. 26) Also, remember if something is making you miserable, you do have the power to change it – in work or love or whatever it may be. Have the guts to change. You don’t know how much time you’ve got on this earth so don’t waste it being miserable. I know that is said all the time but it couldn’t be more true. Anyway, that’s just this one young gals life advice. Take it or leave it, I don’t mind! Oh and one last thing, if you can, do a good deed for humanity (and myself) and start regularly donating blood. It will make you feel good with the added bonus of saving lives. I feel like it is something that is so overlooked considering every donation can save 3 lives! That is a massive impact each person can have and the process really is so simple. Blood donation (more bags than I could keep up with counting) helped keep me alive for an extra year - a year I will be forever grateful that I got to spend it here on Earth with my family, friends and dog. A year I had some of the greatest times of my life. ..’Til we meet again. Hol Xoxo”

    Jenny Love 2019 Renewal

    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
  3. I'm a guy. I'm 55 years old, 6 feet 3 inches tall. I went back on the program two months ago when I weighed 273 lbs. Today I'm at 241. They put me on 1700 calories but I changed it to 1500 on my own because I am NOT a patient person. I've never seen another male in the Jenny Craig office I go to. I may be the only one. So I hide. I weigh-in on Saturday mornings at 7:45 a.m. because no one else is there. I bring in a food order every Monday morning when no one else is there. I get in and get out fast. No one at works knows I'm on Jenny Craig except one woman who found out when my wife told her accidently. Every morning I weigh myself with absolutely nothing on (I even take off my wedding ring) before I put a single thing in my mouth, even water. On Saturday morning before my official weigh-in at the Jenny Craig office, I get up at 6:00 and go to the gym. I work out real hard sit in the sauna for as long as I can. Then I go home and change into the lightest clothes I have. Seriously. I weighed them on a digital food scale. A pair of shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops. I pee, I p**p, I shave, I trim my toe nails (hey, every ounce counts), and I drive to Jenny Craig. Before I get on the scale I take off my flip flops, my watch and my wedding ring. I am the lightest I can be at that moment. I exhale, close my eyes and step on the scale....

    The Journey Begins

    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.
  5. 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!!
  6. As any one knows that reads this blog I suffer from extreme anxiety. It has been something that used to get in my way on a daily basis. Not anymore! I had a major breakthrough a few weeks ago. I realized that I didn't feel worthy of my weight loss. I felt as, if I lost MY weight people would see who I really am. What's so bad about that you ask? To me it was horrifying. I had been hiding behind this 'chubby girl' image so that nobody would want to approach or talk to me. I subconsciously liked being the 'chubby girl', my weight was my barrier. Now, this made me really look within me and I found out things about myself that were empowering. I do deserve to lose the weight! Not just for me but for my family. My family deserves to see me happy and healthy. I deserve to be happy and healthy. I'm not saying this journey is easy because it's not. But this journey is fulfilling, eye opening, and most of all worth it. So what do you say ladies and gentleman? Let's knock down our barriers and realize just how worthy we are to be healthy, loved, and happy. I know I couldn't be more grateful to jenny and my supporters. This program has done for me more than anyone could ever know and I am so very thankful.
