My journey with JENNY CRAIG is not just about weight loss…it is about changing years of bad habits and developing a healthy lifestyle which will be with me until the end!
A reader recently asked me how I do the diet and provide meals for my husband. I actually live with my husband and youngest son who is in college, so there are three.
My answer is….I have hung up the aprons!
Perhaps that seems a bit harsh, but please understand, I have walked this walk for years. I wish I had money for all of the diets I have begun and quit.
I quit because I kept cooking and for me cooking has been how I showed love to my family. It also is something I love, so I tweak…and taste…and season…and taste…and make certain it is perfect in every way.
I failed so often and it usually happened during excuses made to serve the family, so this time I told the two men in my life…YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. Since June, I think I have cooked maybe three times and I was feeling sorry for them. But, you know, they are adults and they have survived. Also, they go out to eat together more often and I really believe it has brought father and son closer.
I need for it to be this way for now. Since I was sick, I have stalled a bit….but I will persevere. For health reasons, I must lose more weight. It is my time…now or never! So, these two guys are fine on their own until I feel like I have reached my goals…a healthy weight and changed habits for good.
Yes, I am going to cook holiday meals…but my goal is to be down by a total of 25 pounds when Thanksgiving gets here….okay, I put it on the record…now we will see if I do it! Please ask questions when you have them…it helps me know what you are processing about these posts! And thanks for hanging in there with me JENNY CRAIG.
Now, in honor of Halloween, I bring you a resident of my backyard…have a fun and safe evening everyone!
