hi my name is Jen, I lost alomst 50lbs a couple years ago, and I gained about 30 back over the last couple years... :( I'm trying really hard to focus and to really start losing again! I really want to get there! I am on weight watchers online now.. and I know it works if you follow the program - I have just been not doing it 100% and I need to start!

UPDATE: NOV 8 2012 | Current weight: 223.5lbs
I have been trying over and over to stay on track, and what happens is I stay motivated for a week, then lose motivation.. SO this week I promised myself that I would work out everyday before I go to Lethbridge. Today will be day 5 of working out, and day 4 of staying on WW points! I feel great, and want to keep going! I was 228.5 on sunday, and today I am 223.5!

UPDATE: JULY 15 2012: 217.8
I am BACK!! I want this!! After going through some extreme personal hell.. I am now living with my sister and her boyfriend, and I want to spend this summer losing weight not gaining... I want to get back into working out 5-6 days a week. I joined Weight watchers Online, in an attempt to save money(cheaper then meetings). I love all the online tools and access that you get with it! For me, my eating habits have always been the issue and I know it will be hard... But I also know that I did this before, and I WILL do this again! I am going to take this one day at a time.. so today, I will stay on point, and track all my food! Unfortunatly, the tendonitis in my arm is back in full force, and I cant do an intese workout today.. so I have to eat perfect untill i can workout.. I just want to rest my arm today and see how it feels tomorrow.


UPDATE: OCT 23/10 Weight: 208
I have just rejoined weight watchers! I was away from it since the end of June, and no good came of it... I tried many times to do it on my own, only to fail each time - I would be good for a couple days, then bad for a week or longer... it was a never ending cycle. I know that I need to go to WW to keep myself accountable

UPDATE: FEB 14/2010 - WEIGHT: 190.5
I just completed day 30 of P90X Classic! I feel great!

UPDATE: October 9/09 - weight: 186.8

So I started doing ChaLEAN Extreme again last saturday - just finished my first week. I finished INSANITY about 3 weeks ago, and was ready for the EXTREME again!! My weight has been going up and down, up and down for a while- I need to start losing more consistantly- I am super excited to do this program again!! I will do an update in about 3 weeks from now!

UPDATE: June 9/09 - weight 186.4

It was working... I need to focus on my eating.... I know this program works... I have lost 45lbs so far! but I have been hovering around that number for a while now.... I don't want to hover anymore... I want to get there! I can't seem to stay on POINTS, I am going way over every week.... what is wrong with me??? Where did my motivation and Will Power go? I HAVE to find it!

One day at staying within my POINTS, needs to turn into a perfect week of staying within my points! One day at a time... it will get easier!


UPDATE: April 25/09 - weight- 188

I am re-doing ChaLEAN Extreme as of today! Time to focus on my eating!

UPDATE: March 27/09 - weight 186

I finished the LEAN phase, i really enjoyed this phase because of all the balance work, it really made me focus on my abs. The results are good, not great... I lost inches and BF % more so than the scale...and thats ok! I plan on doing the LEAN for life phase next, so we'll see waht happens! I want to also add more cardio, because I feel that my body needs it!

LEAN Results:
Day 90
waist- - 36.75" (-0.75")
Hips - - 40" (-0.5")
abductors - - 40" (-0.5")
Chest - - 37.5" (no change)
RT arm - - 10.75" (-0.25")
LT arm - - 10.5" (-0.25")
RT thigh - -22" (-0.75")

BF % - - 20.3% (-3.5%)

LEAN PHASE inches lost: 4 inches

Weight: 5.4lbs
Inches: 10.5"
Body Fat %: 8.1%

UPDATE: Feb 28/09 - weight 186.2

So I finished the PUSH Phase!! it was amazing, I lifted so much more weight than I ever thought I could! I feel stronger than ever, and I can even do a couple push ups on my toes now! (soon it will be all of the reps) My results were ok, and I dont see much of a difference in the pics this time, but I can feel it. I finally got my food on track for the last week of the PUSH Phase, so I am going into the LEAN Phase very optomistic! I now know that I will see greater results if my eating is good. So my goal for this next phase is to really focus on my eating, eating good and healthly.

PUSH Results:
Day 60
waist- - 37.5" (-0.75")
Hips - - 40.5" (-0.25")

UPDATE: Jan 2/09 - weight 192lbs: DOWN 44lbs

Well the holidays nearly killed me, but I made it through to the other side... I was up a bit, but I am getting it back down, and luckly I will be starting ChaLEAN Extreme on Sat Jan. 3rd. I know it is exactly what my body needs to get to the finish line in this weight loss journey. I just posted my Day 1 photos, and I can't wait to see the results from this program...I truely believe that it is going to work...all I have to do is fallow it and eat well. I will be posting progress pics along the way...I CAN"T WAIT!!!

UPDATE: July 31/08 - weight: 201.2lbs: DOWN 30.4lbs

so I have been on this journey for just over 6 months and i believe I have hit somewhat of a platue...but partially my fault... I am stuggling with my eating, (junk food)
my excersize is good.

I have been hovering (1-4lbs) around the 200lb mark...which is so frusturating!!! I really need to focus!

Focus on why I started this whole thing in the first place! I DONT WANT TO BE FAT ANYMORE!!! I have been overweight pretty much my whole life...not anymore!!!
