Claretta – Week 15


The other woman you see in this picture may look sweet, but looks can be deceiving! Meet Jessica, my personal trainer. I met up with her this week and she sized me up and down and now knows exactly what to do to help me improve my transformation. I’ve already had two sessions with her and am surprised that I can even type this blog entry, much less walk. In her opinion we’re probably starting out slowly, but I suspect that won’t last long! I’m just so excited to have this opportunity to get help from Jessica. She has asked me to keep a food journal. Man, I wish I had DietSnaps! (It’s not available yet for Android phones.) She has also asked me not to weigh myself for the next three weeks. That part is going to be hard too. I just have to trust myself that I’m eating right and trust my trainer that I’m getting the right kind of exercise and the weight loss and will take care of itself…but Lexy told me that “I’m stirring the dust up now” and that’s probably why Jessica doesn’t want me to weigh. I know I’m getting my cardio up and building muscle at the same time…guess it’ll all come together.

I’m also back to using the treadmill and I’ll try to attend at least one aqua class a week. At least, I can’t tell I’m sweating in the pool. I’m amazed at how “crappy” I look when I go. I don’t wear makeup, or really do much with my hair. I can’t hide my stomach or butt and I don’t even care. I can’t wait to watch myself shrink!!

I want to give a big shout out to Lexy, Carman and Cyndi of fame. They were asked to submit a question to the Dr. Oz live webcast and their question was read outloud and answered! In the excitement of the moment, I forgot to listen to the answer, but have been told that a transcript may be available and will be posted on their blog. Congratulations girls! You’re almost as famous as Oprah!!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
