Four Months.

1, 2, 3, 4.


Four months.

17 weeks, 2 days.

38 pounds to lose to reach my comfortable "curvy" weight.

Today is my first day on Jenny Craig. They seem to think that it's not impossible. I am hesitant to get my hopes up. It better work because it's expensive. I can exercise, but I need someone else to think for me in terms of food right now, because I am obviously not thinking. I just need something to be easy and thoughtless while I:

  • work on self-control.

  • work on discipline.

  • work on actual work.

  • work on invitations.

  • work on programs.

  • attend showers. (Only eight weeks until the first one! The invitations will go in the mail on 7/1!)

  • design and write thank you notes.

  • am fitted for gowns.

  • take engagement photos.

  • do tons of things that require me to look at mirrors and my reflection ad nauseum.

  • work on not being a cliched asshole that worries about her weight all of the time so that I will be a good wife. (Seriously, when do women get a break? I've freaking out like this since I was 18 -- when I really didn't *need* to be.)

  • get used to being called "a wife."

Andy's excited. He said that he hears a change in my voice. I think that he's getting tired of me talking about this. Rightly so.

Jenny Craig was the best thing I ever did for myself! I love that they teach you to balance - atleast that is what I learned form them. I lost 25 lbs with them and I it was not hard. It works! I'm so happy for you! GO TINA!!

Good for you! I hope that you do great on it. I think you can definitely get to your goal if you incorporate exercise into their plan. It was good to read your post this morning bc I had an eye-opening experience on the scale today...so it's back to my old way of eating what is good for me! I know we can do it!

Good luck girl!

I've lost 45 lbs all by focusing on what I eat. I know it's so hard to do, but I think it really makes the biggest difference. Your weight loss goal is an ambitious one, but if you work hard I know you can do it :)

Ha ha ha ha ha!!! You need to breathe a little!
Along with exercise, I'm sure you can do it!! Besides, it's not like you're going to have a lot of spare time on your hands to just sit and eat. ;-) You can do it - and you'll look beautiful on your wedding day, I'm sure.

By the way, thanks for *kinda* stressing me out now.... I have 5 months left! Guess I better get movin'....

Let us know how Jenny Craig goes! Good luck!

I have been working on the weight thing also. White is not the most flattering color. You go girl!! I have lost 50 and want to lose 50 more before my April wedding. I hope that it works for you!! I will keep looking at your blog so that to check up on your progress.

I literally just laughed out loud at the very last section of that post! You're so lucky to have Queen and Valerie as your BFFs, lmfao!
