Thirteen items I cherish, but have given up in order to reach my goal weight:

1. Grey Goose

2. Jalapeno Potato Chips

3. Miller Lite

4. Starburst Fruit Chews

5. Heineken Lite

6. Hot Cheetos (aka Hot Fries)

7. Wine

8. Pasta (except JC prepared entrees)

9. Bud Light

10. Cheese Enchilada Dinner

11. Margaritas

12. grits (once I start eating them I can't stop)

13. Vodka Tonic...oh, how I miss you!

I do believe it has all been worth it and hope I am able to make this a lifestyle change. After making this list it is very apparent to me I love liquor way too much.

It stands for Jenny Craig. On April 20, 2009 I became a member of the Jenny Craig world. And I am so glad I did. (However, my bank account is not....cost $435 to join and pay for my first week of food.) On my first visit, I weighed a whopping 176 pounds.
I am 5' 7.5" and I weigh 176 in this picture...David is 6'1" and weighs 190. I NEED JC's help and guidance!

How in the world did I gain so many lb's....HAPPY HOUR, BEER, HAPPY HOUR, BEER, HAPPY HOUR...I think you get the picture.

I went last week and have lost 15 pounds and am at 161. My goal weight is 135....JC wants my goal to be 140. Why 135 lbs?

There are several parties/HAPPY HOUR's scheduled at the end of the school year.

David and I go to Florida in July and I know I will gain a few lb's while there.

I will be off for 2 months with nothing to do but eat, and go to HAPPY HOUR!.......

I could go on and on, but I really need to get in shape. So, I am eating JC food and going about once a week to weigh in. Also, I have given up alcohol almost completely (and so has David in order ti support me and my goal). I went without it for 3 weeks and had a few drinks last Friday, but didn't go overboard. (David...went WAY overboard!)

So, I have decided that blogging about my goal will hopefully help me reach and maintain it...along with JC, working out, no booze, my wii fit and a bikini staring at me every day!

Also, if I nix the drinking (only until I reach my goal weight) and hit my goal before my trip I get $400 from a certain someone to go shopping with! If that's not motivation I don't know what is!
