9 Weeks and 16.4 lbs

So after 9 weeks on Jenny Craig I have lost a little over 16 lbs... Not bad.

The food is really good I just wish everything was double the portion. That's the fatty in me who wants twice as much fish & chips and pasta and whatever it is that I'm eating. Except vegetables, I never wish that I had more vegetables. That is not a wish I have ever had.

This week I'm going to try the Jenny Craig Let's Walk It Off CD and DVD. I've been working out two to three times a week. Nothing crazy.

Look, I absolutely hate working out and vegetables and those are two things that I need to get use to if I want to lose the weight. I've been doing an outdoor aerobics class twice a week and hiking once a week... The Let's Walk It Off CD has three workouts on it 10 minutes, 20 minutes and 30 minutes. So maybe I can try to start each day with the 10 minute work out. I figure if I start low, then when I reach plateaus I have things I can do to break through them. If I go all crazy in the beginning I will have nowhere to go when I reach a plateau.

They got some new Menu's this week at Jenny Craig too... and some new foods - cheeseburger sliders! Can't wait to try that! And a Chix Fajita salad kit... My favorite is the Sunshine breakfast sandwich which is basically just an Egg McMuffin, I could eat one every day... I could eat 2 for that matter! I put the english muffin in the toaster and put some I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray on it and some salt and holy shit is that good.

Regardless I can feel my body hitting a plateau and I will need to do things to bump it up to the next level. In a few more pounds my Jenny Craig program drops by 300 calories a DAY so that's going to suck but it must be done if I want to lose weight so I'm going to have to deal.

I will let you know what I think of the Let's Walk It Off cd after I give it a try!

7 Weeks In Jenny Craig

So after 7 weeks I've lost 14 lbs. Almost... 13.something, I forget. But it's going well. I am sticking to it pretty well, sometimes an extra fruit or something. I've started exercising. Nothing crazy like Biggest Loser or anything but an aerobics class that I love, 2 - 3 days a week. I try to hike on weekends. Just finding things to do that involve being outside and away from the computer. It's so good for us to get away from our sofas... our TV's and our computers. It's too much. Too much sitting goes on in the world. It's so good for us to get up and move around.

My sister loves this video...

This is why I hate gyms. This is how the classes feel to me. Gross!

My boyfriend comes home tomorrow... he's been in New York for a month or so. I'm very excited. Can't wait to see him. For the first time in a long time, he's coming home from a trip and I actually weigh less than I did when he left... instead of more.

Making A Comeback

So my last weight in didn't go that well. Not even a pound, not even half a pound... more like a quarter of a pound. I didn't do bad with my diet, and I exercised twice this week, which isn't bad. I didn't let it get me down. Some weeks are going to be better than others.

It did motivate me to stick to my program even stronger this week. No guesstimating amounts of things anymore. No more "not finishing my vegetables." I mean I've been so sick of veggies lately that sometimes I wouldn't eat the full portion. I'd give it to the dogs, or throw it away. I mean I'd rather eat nothing, than eat vegetables, but now I'm choking them down. Also I had been drinking 2 - 3 cans of soda a day. I went out to eat and would have a bite of this and a bite of that. It all adds up.

So this week I'm weighing and measuring everything. I've already worked out twice and it's only Tuesday. This next weight in is going to be a good one. I'm going to break the 10lb mark no matter what it takes. I am determined. I will not stay fat. I am going to continue to lose the weight and get back down to a healthy and happy weight.

I watch every TV show about fat people that I can. OWN has a new show starting tonight called 'I'm Addicted To Food' and I have put it in the DVR. It looks good. I watch that show 'Ruby' because her shitty attitude is exactly why she keeps gaining weight, and I can see by watching her complaining about exercise what I personally need to change about myself and my weight loss program.

Saturday is my next weight in and it's gonna be a good one. I mean truth be told, I have lost about 30 lbs from my fattest but I have quite a bit to go. I still need to lose about 80lbs... that's a lot of fat but I did it to myself and I'm going to take it off myself. People can actually tell that I've lost weight. When I was working out last night my friends all said that they could tell so I'm going to stick to it.
