Here's what happened: my son is a reservist, and he's on track to deploy late this year. My daughter in law struggles with weight / fitness / self-care / health issues as I do (she's far more fashionable & girly than me, but we share the "food as comfort" issue).
She dropped over a couple of evenings ago all bubbly because she's made the decision, she's joining Jenny Craig. Yes, I know that's a name brand expensive program, and it's one that's based on a lot of things I don't believe in: you have to buy their foods, etc. Not the thing I would choose for me normally.
However, I do want to support my daughter in law in her efforts. So last night I drove to the Centre to have that free consultation thing. I know I'm going to be a problem child for them... and I've been to their website and like this one soooo much better.
But I signed up. And immediately asked myself "what have I done?" Still, I'll give it my best shot, but don't count on me not to turn it into my own program, part theirs, part mine. Yeppers, the rebel. I just want to make sure the rebel rebels ONLY against certain parts of the program, not against the essential goals: to drop some pounds to once again what it shows in my profile photo... and feel good, both physically and emotionally.
