Today, I’m starting on the Jenny Craig Program. I am really, really excited about it! I’ve got between 40 and 50 pounds left to lose to be at my final goal, and I’ve got until February to do it. I can’t wait to see how Jenny Craig helps kick start my weight loss.
To start things off, I’ve got to weigh in. I will tell you, I’ve been doing some things on my own to try to lose weight, but I seem to get more discouraged by the day. I’m just not seeing the results I was hoping for this time around. I’m a lot farther along than I was when I started in March, but still not where I was hoping to be by now.
Anyway – here’s the tough part: My weigh in.
Sigh. 186.1. Still about 10 pounds more than I was before I got pregnant with Carly, and still about 50 pounds from where I’d really like to be.
Now, here’s the harder part: Sharing my “Before” picture – taken today, as I prepare to start #MyJennyCraig Journey.
Oh, it hurts to see how bad I look in pictures and on video. When I married my husband almost 11 years ago, I was just a tiny little thing. I think I swallowed her. Twice.
Yes, I know I’ve have seven kids, and I wouldn’t trade any of them for the world. But with each child, there was more weight, more stretching, and more work to get it back off. I’ve just let it go too long. It’s time to get on the right track and save my life. I need to be healthy. I want to be beautiful, yes, but more importantly, I want to instill good habits in my children so that they’re not battling the bulge one day.
That’s why I’m so excited about the Jenny Craig program! They’ve already sent me my first 2 weeks of food, and I can’t believe how much there is! Another thing I can’t believe? How great it tastes! I’ve already eaten breakfast, my morning snack, and lunch, and they were all so yummy! The portion sizes don’t leave me feeling hungry, either. I just need to get used to eating so much during the day now. Head on over to the Jenny Craig website and check out all of their delicious food options. Then, look around some more and read how the program works. Maybe you could get started on your own Jenny Craig journey too!
The people from Jenny Craig are all so friendly, too. I’ve had several people call me and welcome me to the program, one helped me pick out all my food, and my consultant, Tina, explained how everything works. Tina is kind, and so upbeat. I’m going to enjoy talking to her over the next few weeks.
I’ll be tracking my progress with the #MyJennyCraig program here on the blog, on twitter (with the hashtag #MyJennyCraig and #AngieWeighsIn), on my Facebook page, on pinterest, and you can also track my weekly weigh ins every Friday on Fitbit.
I’m hoping for a GREAT “after” picture when my month with Jenny Craig is up. Hope you’ll stay tuned!
