Last Wednesday I mentioned that I started the Jenny Craig program for a few weeks. I have to go in once a week for a weigh in and to talk with my program counselor about how my week went. Well, when I went in on Friday for weigh in, I had lost a whopping 4lbs! That’s HUGE for me! My first meeting to get started in the program, I remember being asked how would I feel once I lost 20lbs and I said if I lost 5 I would be happy! So to hear that I lost 4 I was blown away! And for the record, let me say that I started the program on Sunday after my first visit and weigh in on Saturday (got that?).
So I’m halfway through my second week today and everything is going great. I did have a bad day on Monday. I was in a funk for really no reason. My day started out great. I woke up, got the boys off to school and went up to the mall for the walk-about that takes place at the mall early in the morning before it opens. Quick story, I knew heading up to the mall that there were going to be majority older people there because I’ve done this before after my oldest son was born. But back then I was more active so I could hang with the best of them when it came to walking. Well on Monday, those older women (and men!), were passing me left and right! I felt soooo lame! I’m laughing right now just thinking about it. I tried to blame it on the shoes I was wearing because I had on my All Stars (Converse) which I do know aren’t walking shoes, but they are the only athletic shoes I owned at the time. Anyway, lessoned learned.
Since I am adding exercise now, I’m wondering what else I could do besides walking? I need to work on my arms and my stomach. I’m kind of discouraged about my stomach because I have had three cesareans and it just seems like there isn’t any hope for it! Do you have any suggestions?
Also, what are some good shoes for walking? I have to keep up with my walking buddies
