My Thoughts on Fashion, Food, Fitness and my weight loss and skin removal Journey

WW week 1 is in the books, I share what I liked and some things I need to be aware of moving forward.

My first week on WW I can’t believe it has already been 1 week since starting WW. This week was full of some very high moments as well as some very hard and challenging moments. I thought I would share some of my initial thoughts and feelings about this program, being it’s only my first week in. I found some things I definitely need to pay attention to that may cause some issues, and I found some very positive things already that have drastically changed my relationship with food and my eating disorder. So let’s just jump right in. The first few days As I started my WW journey, the first few days were a little hard. It took me a few days to get used to tracking points, figuring how many points were in each food, and trying to plan my meals for each day. It might not seem hard, but this is all very new to me. Being I was on Jenny Craig for YEARS, changing to something new will take some time to get used to, and I expected this. But trying to track my foods and figuring out the whole points system was

The Start of a NEW Journey. Day 1 of WW.

My eating plan was not working anymore I promised myself about a year ago, that I would make the choices and the decisions that are best for me. Period. No matter what it looks like, no matter how many times I might have to change and switch things up and no matter what that path may look like. I made a promise to myself that I would make the choices that worked for me and do what is best for me. After I gained some weight and was really struggling with my eating disorder, I decided to go back on Jenny Craig. I went back to what “worked” and what I knew like the back of my hand. It was familiar and at the moment, I knew it was the best choice for me. I also began doing daily weigh-ins. Both of these decisions were not only to lose weight, overcome this fear and dependency on the scale, but to help me work on my relationship with myself, with food, and continue with my journey. I talked to my therapist about this weekly. We talked about how it was going back on Jenny Craig, the daily weigh-ins, and how I

I have been struggling with weight regain and I have finally stepped on the scale and looked at that number.

This blog is going to be a tough one to write but I think being honest with you, honest with myself, and getting all of my thoughts and feelings out is only going to continue to help me heal. So, here we go.  I talked about weight gain in another post, you can read about it HERE.  But in this post, I wanted to go into more detail as to when I started gaining weight, some of the reasons that added to the weight gain, how I feel and what I am doing about it now. To begin with, I have been very hard on myself because of this weight gain. I even have days where I HATE myself and feel like I not only let myself down but others as well. I cannot believe that I allowed this to happen. I told myself that I would never be someone who fell into those typical statistics of people who lose a lot of weight and gain it back. I told myself that would not be me…but here we are. Getting to my Lowest Weight Early in 2016, before I started my skin removal journey, my weight was around 150 pounds. I had

What is your eating plan like now that you are locked in and you are actively trying to lose weight? I have decided to go back to Jenny Craig.

What is your eating plan like now that you are locked in and you are actively trying to lose weight? I wanted to write this post to answer some questions about my current “eating plan” and let you guys know of some changes I recently made about what I am eating. I have put this blog off for a few reasons. One reason is that I do not want to come off as I am trying to promote a company or product- because I am not. The second reason is that, as much as I love this company and feel it has an amazing program, I feel that they have not been super supportive of me over the years. So honestly it is hard to talk about them. But since I am so honest with you guys, I felt that I had to let you know what I am doing now in terms of trying to lose weight and what I am eating. For those of you who might not know, I joined Jenny Craig when I first began my weight loss journey. I was over 500 pounds and this program seemed like it was going to be the best fit
