Last Monday, I was driving home and talking to my sister-in-law Beth on the way home. And something hit me… it was time to take action.
While I had been thinking about it for a while, I’d hesitated. I’d told myself that there might be another way. I told myself that I could just do it on my own… but in the back of my head I knew what I really needed to do.
Instead of driving all the way home, I took a turn in the opposite direction… in the RIGHT direction, if you will.
I drove myself to my local Jenny Craig Centre.
Beth and I talked about it, and she really encouraged me to do it. I hung up the phone with her, and called Jenny to see if my favorite centre direct had time available to see me. Of course, she made the time and ten minutes later, I was at Jenny Craig waiting for the first “official” consultation that I’d had in about a year.
I’d felt overwhelmed for the past few weeks, and I needed a plan.
It had been a long time since I had sat in that very seat, in this position. Used to sitting in the waiting room very proud of what I’d lost, I hadn’t experienced that “I need help” feeling in a long time… and, it brought me to tears.
I don’t think the tears were sad tears, instead tears of relief. I’d finally asked for help. I’m finally leaning on the support system I’d used in the past, and I felt confident that I could get a handle on what had been going on.
After an amazing pep talk with Maria, I walked away with a week’s worth of food, a plan, and piece of mind that I would lose that weight I’ve been haunted by for the past six months.
I shared with you guys that I’d gained back about 15 pounds in the second half of 2103. Since then, I’ve been trying to eat better… and workout more… but in reality, I haven’t been consistent.
For me, the best way for me to lose weight is to actively participate in a program. I’m not one of those girls that can eat on program one day, and off program the next… my body likes consistency and with consistency, I find peace.
Jumping back on program with the Jenny Craig program has been amazing! I was able to slide right back into my comfortable place on this program, dining on some of my favorite Jenny meals.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m eating well.. and dining on quite a few beautiful meals!
I’ve been leaning on my volumizing strategies, following a food plan daily, and I feel amazing! I’ll be weighing in for the first time with Maria later today. I’ve scheduled to visit with her on Mondays after work. Looking forward to seeing that scale start to move!!!
Sometimes we just have to pause. Sometimes we need to re-assess. And, sometimes we need to go back to what we know works. I’m back.
