Still November... and doin' Fine!

Here we are just a few weeks after my last post... I've got to find a way to remind me to post... not
sure what that can be... but... anyhooooo I am STILL on track! Since I got "Serious" I have lost (ready for it?.... ) 16 lbs!!!  YAY ME!!!  I EVEN got thru Thanksgiving and ate very little of each thing I liked... over did a LITTLE on the desserts.. but actually very proud of my control! So I just wanted to check in... and Stay Accountable!!

That was THEN, and This is NOW

Well, THAT was June... and THIS is November.  I actually ended up getting sick a week after that last post, and then spent July & August battling Pneumonia... ya, that was fun... Sept seemed to be clear... but Early October let me know it wasn't quite done with me yet. Sometime late in September? I think...  I had decided I'd had enough and walked back into Jenny Craig and said let's DO IT. So it's been maybe 4 weeks... I really should look up the date but I have stayed pretty "Jenny Craiged" (hey if Google can be a Verb... why not Jenny Craig?) and so far I am down almost 12 lbs... YAY ME! I just keep the next 2-3 lbs in sight... keep looking for it on the scale, and when I feel like eating something that will defeat that goal... I remind myself THAT is not the way to make that 'new number' appear on the scale... MOST of the time it works.... I am looking forward to new clothes... it's a carrot... 

Anyway, if you are thinking of trying Jenny... Do it!  I can tell you they do have great snacks!  (and unfortunately Snacks are a great incentive for me) LOL... my Evening Treat is a slice of Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with raspberries; it's the Best... maybe even cook down a few raspberries to create a sauce to drizzle over top.. and if you're not a cheesecake fan (???)... they have another yummy dessert... Chocolate Lava Cake! I have found if I take a frozen banana out and thaw it... it slices up nicely as a topping for that cake.

So, I'm keeping on track, and feeling good about it. Adding some biking here and there... I'll check back in next week... or next month.  :-)
