Doing good!

I have been doing great since this past Monday.

Saturday, November 28, 2009


Well, its the sat after Thanksgiving and I am just sittin at home playing online. I am about to get started cleaning. I just wanted to update everyone on my stalling progress. I have not done well at all, but the one good thing is that so far I have pretty much maintained 175 for the last 3 or 4 weeks. I had gotten back up to 184. Then a friend of mine said "hey lets try doing south beach together and see if we can stick with it with a buddy". So I was all in. Did great for about 5 days and lost down to 178. Then I got the flu...ugh...It wwas aweful. I didn't eat anything for about 4 days, just laid in the bed and existed. And that was a chore. After day 5 I didn'e have fever anymore, but I still had no taste buds and felt yucky. So here I am 2 weeks later and food still doesn't taste like it should. I am gonna get back on the south beach thing today and see if I can start again. I feel better, just have eaten bad what little I have eaten. And exercise....yeah thats a joke...I have done NONE!!! So anyway, there you go theres an update.

On a happier note I went shopping yesterday and got ALOT of my Christmas shopping done. That makes me so happy.

Anyway, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a great Black Friday! See you later.

Not So good!

Well, I haven't done so well the past few weeks. Haven't weighed and haven't eaten and exercised like I should. I have had a good day here and there, but thats it. I am trying so hard to get back on but it is hard when you have been off this long. Just thought I would update.

I am more than a number on a scale!

Hello ladies. I have made what I think to be a very healthy decision for myself. I am no longer worried about the number on the scale. In the past I have beat myself to death over a number, either it isn't low enough, or its falling too slow. Always something. Today I decided to check my body fat % on my scales because I was reading that that is a much healthier way to monitor fat loss. So I read that for women the acceptable range for women is 25 to 31%, A fit range for women is 21-24% and Athletic is 14-20%. When I did mine and saw that it was only 28.7% I was shocked..In fact outraged might be a better term. So mad for getting so hard on myself over my weight when in truth I am only a little above the average. So why do I feel like I need to lose SOOOO much weight. Maybe because the freekin government says I should weigh between 115-140. 140 is the max!! That is crazy, if I got to that weight what would my body fat % be then. First let me say that I have NEVER thought I could get to 140 EVER, but I always felt like a failure because I knew I couldn't. So as of today, I am going for a healthy body fat %. I want to be within a healthy range and that is it! I feel like this is a milestone for me in itself. If you will notice I changes my goals on the side over there to reflect my hopes of were I want to be.

A Few New Pics

This is a new picture of my face. I actually took it to see how my hair was growing. It is actually growing alot right now. I looked back at my last picture of my face and it was 2 months ago, and I thinkmy hair has at least 2 inches, maybe more.

This a new picture I took today. Feeling skinny in my dress for church.

YEAH, I lost...I am at 176 now. I am trying very hard to not be totally down on myself. I want to be mad thinking that if I hadn't had all those bad days it would be more, I just keep telling myself that 19lbs is awesome and I can keep it up!!! I am also praying that the Lord will fix my screwed up mind! lol

I am also adding my measurements to the side over there, so check em out.

About to go weigh in

Well, I was supposed to weigh in Tue, but I was home laying around feeling yucky because of my period. So I am going to go today. I just thought I would get it over with. My eating hasn't been too bad this week, just had NO energy to exercise. Even skipped my bootcamp workout Tues, but I wen last night and it was great. So maybe I can get back to my exercise. I have learned that I don't lose anything if I don't exercise. So I will update my weight when I get home.

Oh has anyone seen the new Biggest Loser Wii game. I saw it on QVC this week it comes out on Oct 6th. I can't wait. Its just like being on the ranch. You get food tips and you get to work out with bob and jillian. I want it SOOO bad.

Love My Husband!!!

Well, today was good...I have had a horrible few days because I started my period and it has been miserable. I haven't had a one for about 2 years, because of being pregnant or nursing. So this is only my second one and I also had a tubal after having my daughter and I think that has made it worse. But anyway, I have horrible cramps, and back pain. So for the past few days I have just laid around and eaten everything in sight. My hubby could tell I was really stressed about it, so today he came home early and told me to call and make an appt for a massage and body wrap. It was AWESOME!!! He is such a good husband. Sometimes I forget just how lucky I am and he does something like this to remind me. I am so blessed.

I ended my fast today. So I did it for 36 hours (8pm Sat night to 8am this morning). I decided to not do 3 days because I have to weigh in tomorrow and I was afraid it would show weight loss that wasn't really "weight loss". So I have eaten today and am doing great. Eating very healthy. I feel good about my fast and think it helped me to get the junk out of my system. I am proud I was able to do it.

Sunday, September 13, 2009


Today I am fasting. I am drinking lots of water, some coffee, and tea, and a little juice. I did this last month and it made me feel so good, I decided to try to do it about once a month. It has been a month and yesterday was a bad day for food for me. SO I thought I would do it again for the next few days. The first time I did 3 days. I think I will do that again this time. I seemed to really feel awesome that third day. So far I feel ok. I am a little hungry, but I just drink something and say a little prayer. It is working great so far. It really seemed to help me with my horrible cravings and to break through a platue. I am really not platued right now, but have not lost because of eating badly. I am hoping to just get the junk out of my system this time.

The last few days...

Hi guys, well last night was my bootcamp. Not as bad as Tuesday but I love it. Then got up this morning and did 30 minuts of yoga and 30 minutes of the stuff we do at bootcamp. I feel good today. I think I am still mentally recovering from last week of eating so bad. I am having these aweful cravings, but so far I haven't caved. I think when I weigh in next week they will measure me. I am looking forward to this, as I hope I will have lost several inches. I am gradually feeling better about the way I look. This as Liz know is a huge struggle for me. I have odd body image issues. Sometimes I would like to go to therapy to find out why I see myself as so fat. I swear when I look in the mirror I see myself as if I weighed 250lbs. The odd thing is that I don't even see others as that big. I have this friend that weighs around 233. When I look at her I think "wow I can'y believe she weighs that much, I would have probably guessed closer to 200." I don't know what is wrong with me. Anyone else have this problem?

Weigh In

Well I decided today to go ahead and weigh in early this week to make up for skipping it last week. I was inpressed to see that eating horribly all week, I was only up 1.5lbs. So I am back up to 178.5lbs. But I am back on and doing great. I went to bootcamp tonight and they kicked my but for an hour. Exactly what I needed!!!

Bad Week!!

Well this week has sucked!!! I have eaten terrible. I am doing good today so maybe I can get back on my diet. I am trying so hard to do this but I am so frustrated. I want to lose this weight, but I get stressed and all I can do is eat. Ok, I will do better, I will do better!!

I even skipped my weigh-in this week too...ugh!

5K Run

Well, today was my 5K run. I completed it in 38 minutes. I feel so good about this. It was a very challenging course, lots of hills and one everyone calls the "cliff". But I made it and even beat my own last time. My previous time was 39.27. So I shaved about 30 seconds off each mile this run. I am soooo proud of myself!!!

Ugh Ugh Ugh!!! Well just wanted to check in and confess. I ate so baddddd this weekend and then thought yesterday that I would get back on and start fresh and I came home and my 9 yr old was soooo sick. I took him to the Dr and she almost put him in the hospital but she thought I could handle it because I have delt with this alot. His asthma was really flared up and and his pulse oxygen level was 93%. So she gave him a steriod and and antibiotic and told me to give him breathing treatments every 2 to 3 hrs instead of every 4. So needless to say I came home and was super stressed so I just ate, and ate, and ate. Oh well, its a new day, but I think I gained like 3 or 4lbs. Hopefully just fluid or not getting enough water or something. I am back on today and have done great. So anyway, I just had to vent how annoyed I get with myself sometimes. Thursday is my weigh-in so I guess we will see how bad the damage is then.

Saturday, August 29, 2009


Oh yeah, I wanted to say also that I will post a new picture of me in the sports bra thingy (with my belly showing) when I reach my next goal of 175.5. Maybe as soon as next week. We'll see!! :-)

Run Run Run

I am feeling really great right now. I am signed up for a 5K run next weekend. I am excited and have been preparing for it. I have been doing a run/walk (run or jog about 2 or 3 min, then walk 1 1/2 min then run/jog again) for a few weeks. Doing about 2 miles each time. So far my best practice time was about a 17 min mile. Today I went to the park with the intentions of doing the whole 3.2 mile, just like the 5K. Well I ended up only doing 2.75 miles because Vance called and said Cheyanne had been crying for 30 minutes and he couldn't get her to calm down. So I quit and came home. But when I figured my time, I was shocked to realize I had beat my best practice time. I averaged a 16.25 min mile. I am so happy! I want to do this 5K and beat my previous race time of 37 minutes total. So I am trying to get faster. So I guess we will see next weekend.

Weekly Weigh-In

Well yesterday was my weekly weigh in and I am super excited to say that I lost 2.25lbs!!! That puts me at 177. So close to my next goal I can taste it.!!! I am also excited because the school called me yesterday and I get to sub on Monday for the first time ever. So excited to see how it goes.

Adding a few more pics!

The one on the bottom is from April 09. I thought I looked cute here. I had lost down to 185lbs, but when I stopped losing I got frustrated and quit and gained it all back.
The one on the top is today. I am at 178lbs. The same outfit.

August 26, 2009

Ok, the rest of my story. I started this journey at 195lbs. I am now at 178lbs, so 17lbs down. It has been 8 weeks since I started this and I feel great about it. I have a daughter that is 18 months old and I started trying to lose immediatly after having her. But I breastfed her until a month ago and I truly believe that kept me from losing. I weaned her 4 weeks ago and the weight has been falling off for the past 3 weeks. I lost down to 185 almost immediatly after starting the program, but I had done that 3 times since having her and could never get below that number. So when I weaned her and my body adjusted it seemed to jumpstart my weight loss. Now I know everyone says "if you breast feed you will lose all your weight fast" Not me!! I felt so hungry all the time I think I was eating enough for 3 grown men!! But now that is in check and I feel so much better.

So this is me today. In my outfit that was way too tight early this summer. I love the way it looks now!

Just getting started

Hey, My name is Jennifer, and I am just trying out this site b/c my sister loves it. So, I thought I would give it a try. I have been doing Nu Energy weight Control since July 2, 2009. I am trying to exercise alot and prepare to do another 5K. I was interested today b/c I put on a pair of shorts that my mom bought me early this summer. I bought them without trying them on and when I got them home they were too tight to be comfortable. So today I decided I would try them on and WOW, they are lose. I was so excited I decided to take a new pic. So I am gonna post my old ones and the ones from today.

This is when I first started. I took it sometime last year, but I was weighing in at 195lbs. I was almost 1 year past having my daughter so I couldn't believe that I was still this big.
