Milestone!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I have been on Jenny since the beginning of July. I remember a picture that i saw of myself on Canada Day at the camp ground that i worked at. I looked like a pile of bulgy, fatty flesh. My head looked so small in comparison to my body. Late that night, I cried into my pillow mourning the lass of who i once was. I called the Jenny Craig hotline number and hung up.
The next day my tears had dried and i called the local Jenny Craig to make an appointment. I fought back tears and scheduled to meet someone that day which was good because I didn't want to talk myself out of it. Going to Jenny was like admitting that I had failed at the very basic task of caring for myself! I put my pride away, walked in and spoke with the intake girl. I was scared. I had never stuck with any kind of long term diet.
I have been doing it for 4.5 months and am down 60 pounds. I have been trying to track all of my food to be in the habit because i will use SP forever. I need to be accountable for what i am eating and even more importantly, i need to be aware.
So that was my background story to pretty much one sentence..... I fit into my size 12 jeans! I still have a long journey in front of me but i sure love my body again. I don't hide from mirrors or cameras any more. Thanks Jenny and Spark People. Together you have changed my life.
