In the 10 weeks since I last posted:
I've lost apxl 17 pounds - combination of Jenny Craig and exercise.
The first 6 weeks were easy, the last four? not so much. This is where the habits of a lifetime want to assert themselves. It's easy to be a program for a few weeks...but when it starts into the "few months" part, the childish part of me wants to be done.
That said, I'm sticking with it. I didn't get to be 250+ in six weeks. I didn't lose my cardiovascular fitness in 6 weeks either. So...one day at a time. One step at a time, one meal at a time.
Retaining my motivation is key, and I struggle with it, some days more, some less. I'm under 240 for the first time in at least 3 years. That, in itself, is pretty damn amazing.
