Yesterday, I spent some time on the Jenny Craig website and there was a thread with before/after pics...so, I thought I'd go ahead and post some.
Warning...these (esp the before) may not be for the faint of heart...ha!!!
Oct 2009, While on my European Cruise, @ 215 lbs
November 2009 is when I made the decision to commit to a lifestyle change and started using Sparkpeople.
July 2010..@ 180 lbs...no longer wearing clothes with an "X" in the size and you can start to see cheekbones. AND according to the BMI index, no longer obese.
then I hit a 9 month plateau, I stopped the disciplines as far as food, but kept up the exercise. I was able to maintain @180 ...with a slight gain around the holidays.
So, I went to dh and told him "I've proven I can maintain, can I join Jenny and lose the rest".. He said yes.
so, March 2011, the day I started Jenny...184 lbs
This morning at @166 lbs, I'm wearing the same outfit as the 180 pic, so we can see progress.
My goal is 150, hoping to hit it end of Oct this year. Though the hysterectomy has put it all on another screeching halt. BUT in the 6 weeks since I have been able to maintain. Hoping once I'm cleared to exercise, I'll be back on the weight loss track.
AND I'm open to an ultimate goal of 140...but let's get to 150 first!
