‘Twas the Night before Weigh In….
And, I could come up with a catchy poem about what’s going through my head. I mean, ’tis the season. But instead, I’m just going to tell you… it’s happening tomorrow: I’m weighing in.
As soon as I got home from my brother’s house from Christmas, I called Jenny Craig. After days of heavy meals, mashed potatoes and gravy daily (with the best gravy that’s ever crossed my lips – thanks, BG), and several bottles of my favorite wine, that phone call had to be made.
It’s been six years since I walked into Jenny Craig for the first time, and I can honestly say… it’s been the best program I’ve ever been on. I’ve never been able to keep the weight off for as long as I have this time around. Practically a miracle.
And, now, I’ve put a little bit back on. And, it’s not because I’m eating Jenny Craig. It’s because I’ve had Starbucks pumpkin loaf, ChickFila Sandwiches, and lots of ridiculous snacks and meals along the way.
Good News: I haven’t gone completely off the tracks and gained it all back (and more) as I’ve done in years past.
Bad News: We have a situation, and it needs to be addressed.
And, it must be addressed immediately. Not after New Year’s. Not after one more meal out with friends. Not after my birthday. Right Now.
One thing I love about the first weigh in: I only have to look at that number one time on that scale one time. That number’s got no where to go but down. And it will.
It’s a little weird the night before a weigh in and the night before getting back on track. I don’t know if I always feel this way, but tonight, I feel a little sad about it. Like my freedom is being taken away. And I guess in some ways, it is… this isn’t a free world I live in, where I eat everything in sight. I’m not sure where I got the impression that this was okay for the time being, but I feel miserable.
When I fuel my body with deliciously healthy foods, hydrate, and meditate… all is well in the world. And, it’s time to get back to it. Tomorrow’s the big day. I hope you’ll stick around to hear the success that follows. I can’t wait to share it.
