It was about 1400, I was sitting there looking at the gal through the window as she prepared my meal and drink. Window slides open, she recites the order and hands me my stuff. I go through the motion of pulling out the McChicken sandwich and munch on it as I drive back to the office.
What I realized as I was chewing, was how uninterested and unimpressed I was in what I was eating. What also came to mind was how disgusting I felt. My belly getting pinched by my belt in the car, the sweat that was forming in the creases in my arm as I drove with the window open, the puffiness of my face in the mirror, how uncomfortable I have been feeling in my clothe, the works…
So I did, what I normally do; made an impulsive decision the minute I got back to the office. I got online looked up Jenny Craig and gave them a ring. Three hours later I was sitting with a consultant in Hemet going over my options.
That’s right, I signed up this evening with Jenny Craig. It’s not just for women guys!
I’m really excited and motivated too. I have put down a goal to lose 90 pounds, and want to drop 40 by end of March. To put it into perspective, I’m 290 right now – by end of March I want to be at 250 and by the summer 200. That will be my ideal weight, any less than that and I’ll look too unhealthy.
You might be wondering why I am sharing all this, well, I can tell you it’s not to promote Jenny Craig. It is to motivate you to do something that you know you need to do, but for whatever reason have been putting off. My own health was my thing; this year is bringing a lot of changes for me professionally, might as well make some personal changes.
I hope to use this and chronicle my experience, my trial and tribulations on the program, and hopefully the insight can help you or someone you know.
Here’s to losing some weight and feeling better. Thanks for stopping by and if you can relate please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment so that I can get to know you.
