Jacqueline 85 Days WW

3 Months on WW. How am I feeling?

I cannot believe it has already been (almost) 3 months since I began my new adventure on Weight Watchers. 85 days baby! I have lost 25 pounds since day one, and I feel SO good. Not just because of the weight I have lost, but with how much I am changing. Since day one of WW, there were things about the program I loved and things I found to be a little challenging. I also was aware of some things personally that I knew I had to watch out for. Now that I pretty much have the program down(I am on the blue plan), and I have been on it for a while, I wanted to share my thoughts, feelings, and how it is going . Let’s start with the positives Weight Loss Yes, even though I am focusing on more than just losing weight, I do want to talk about the weight loss part of it, since weight loss is a part of my journey. I think in terms of weight loss, this program works. You are free to eat what you want, there is no such thing as “good food” or “bad food” and I find that I am eating more

Top 10 Tips For Surviving the Holidays 2020.

With the holidays right around the corner, I thought this would be a perfect time to share about my journey and how the holidays, as much as I love them, are some of the most stressful times of the year for me.  This stress is not just with weight loss and working on my health and fitness goals, but with now trying to recover from an eating disorder AND being in a GLOBAL PANDEMIC.  I am someone who struggles with a binge eating disorder and struggles with the all or nothing mentality.  When I’m struggling it’s hard to find a middle ground and create some balance when it comes to food and what I choose to eat and choose not to eat. I go all-in hard OR I am super restricted and don’t “allow” myself to have anything at all. This is especially true around the holidays. When I first began my weight loss journey, I stayed hardcore to my “diet”. I was on Jenny Craig at the time and yes I ate my frozen Jenny Craig meals for Christmas (and Thanksgiving).  I was SO overly committed to losing weight that I did not truly allow myself to enjoy

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

new journey

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
