Hello!!!  Its Jenny.   Another week has passed.  Still going strong!!!!!  Oh yeah and Sara is in NYC….. again.  This time I am genuinely jealous.   Walking around the city sounds like the perfect workout right now.  Instead I am stuck in gorgeouuuus NC. This time last year you could find Sara and I sharing a pitcher of margaritas. Ahhhhhhhhh That kind of sounds amazing.   It is so not paleo though!! So  right now I am dreaming about the beach.  In the past , New years day would come and like most people I would make the same resolution to get healthy and lose the weight I hated so much.  I would think, If I start now in January, by the time June would come I would be beach body ready.   In that moment I was so motivated when imagining how amazing the summer would be now that I was thinner.  Welllllllllllllllll……………June would come and nothing had changed.  How sad that sounds now.  To know I was so passionate about changing and then 6 months later realizing I changed nothing!!!!!  WTF!  Ok so anyway …nothing would change.   AT that point I would think about my birthday, October 2nd.  I would have 4 months to turn it around, and look and feel awesome on my birthday.  SIDE BAR………….I talked about this with Sara last week and we both do the same thing,  have these events in the year that would motivate us enough to change our sloppy eating ways.  Back to my birthday………….It would come and again nothing had changed.     The next event Sara and I would want to lose 20lbs by would be our Salon’s Holiday party “The BObbies” in January. Spoiler alart….We didn’t lose the weight.   This cycle of false weight loss hype went on for the past 6 years.  I have wanted to change so many times.  So much time has gone by, and the time has made me really comfortable at this weight.  Now we have decided to actually change, and it is really difficult!!!!  Now a days I am thinking beyond the beach,my birthday and the Bobbies.  The years ahead are going to be full of meaningful  events and I want all of them to be focused on having so much fun with my family and friends, and not a reminder of my weight loss failure.   Thank you for all of your support.  Love you!!!! <3Jenny and Sara
