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!
