All figured out

After a year on Jenny Craig and having all my meals made for me, it was a big jump to try it on my own. This site has really reduced my stress and I feel like I can really make this work.

I started out with a low fat mix (40/40/20) that was really difficult - I was finding that I was very full all the time and meal just ran into each other. It was also hard to build the meal plan. Tonight I decided to try the 'balanced' numbers and switched to 40/30/30. Creating tomorrow's plan was much easier.

Support for me is great. My hubby is also trying to keep fit and has a few pounds to lose after he put them back on this fall. He lost almost 40lbs last winter and except for about 7 has kept it off. He I am leaning heavily on him to stay true and help me find my way.

I run my second race tomorrow - 5km Resolution Run with the Running Room. I am excited about my increased fitness levels since the summer. We have always been active, but when I weighted over 280lbs it was too  hard to do very much. Now I can do so much more - the great thing is that my body seems to really like it. Now I am in the 230's and can't wait to see what my body thinks of the 190's, 170's and finally with a normal BMI.

It has been a great journey so far and I am truly excited to see how it all turns out.
