So I decided to join Jenny...
Since I turned 30, I can't help but be unhappy with where my body's at physically. I'm not the bouncy little blonde girl I used to be, lol. And I just haven't been feeling good about myself lately. So I've decided to do something about it.
Posting these pictures & *gasp* all my measurements (EEK!) for all the world to see isn't the easiest thing for me to do, (just ask Brad how much I hate getting my picture taken lately, lol) but I feel like if even one other person gets inspired by this it'll have all been worth it. Plus it's extra motivation for me to stick with the plan & I'm really looking forward to my 'after' pics. This'll make it that much more exciting once I've hit my goal, haha. I'm really looking forward to being able to look back at these & think 'I did it'.
The first couple of days were pretty easy. The whole plan is ridiculously easy actually. The food's awesome & the meal plans keep me full. My problem is that I have absolutely no self descipline when it comes to cravings. & I am truly a fast food addict. No joke. I also have this weird entitled thing going on where (when I get a craving) I think to myself 'Why shouldn't I eat McDonald's today?' 'Who says I can't have Taco Bell?' It's like I'm stuck thinking that I still have the energetic little body I had in college...but thats certainly is not the case, lol.
Which is why I'm grateful I have a coach to help explain that I'm not crazy & there are ways to deal with cravings. She's like my little Jenny therapist who I can tell all my little issues to. And so far - they've been right!
"Surfing the Urge" Karen told me, is what they call beating the cravings. And so far it's helped. A lot. I'm sure there are going to be many things I'll learn through Jenny in the weeks to come. But so far, I'm just enjoying my food & trying not to cave, because I know it'll all be worth it in the end.
Now I'm not going into this to be some gaunt little skinny minnie. I'm 5'7 & I set a realistic goal for myself of 30lbs, with an average weight loss of a pound a week. So it's not like this is going to be one of those month long quick fixes that never work. (Been there, done that) I'm prepared to put the time in for the proper end result. I think back to how energetic & happy I was with my body back when I was a size 7/8 & all I can think is - enough with this size 11/12 business.
Ok, so if you care to read, *holding my breath* here's my measurements:
Chest - 40"
Waist - 35"
Abdomen (mah bellay) - 40" (yes I'd like to take a second here & point out that my belly matches my boobs. NOT happy about this. & this has always been my most hated part of myself)
Hips - 44"
Starting Weight - 167
And this is the starting weight picture took of me on my very first day of the plan.
So. Here I go!
