Jan’s Journey – MAY 2011

May 1, 2011 by


The goal line is clearly in sight.  I am on the 20 yard line and am dead set on touching “down” on my goal by May 31.  I have 4 lbs to go.  I get so many compliments.  More and more people are aksing what “diet” I am on.  So I am gladly spreading the […]

Big News!  I am now less than 10 lbs from my goal!  I am so excited and more motivated than ever.  I feel great and people tell me I look great too.  We had an Art Show here this past weekend and I saw a lot of people I had not seen for awhile.  They […]

Jan’s Journey – March

Another month…another 4lbs of fat gone…another 40 articles of clothing sent to the Goodwill. My fat loss continues to amaze people and I get so many comments about how skinny I am.  This seems so absurd to me.  But other people really think I am skinny.  I LOVE IT!   I have only 14lbs to […]

Jan’s Journey – February 2011

January 30, 2011 by


It has been an interesting month.  Over the holidays, I saw many people I hadn’t seen for awhile and they all are calling me “Skinny Mini”.  Ha!  I have never before in my life been called “skinny”.  I am definitely skinnier than I used to be (down 60 lbs now) but I am in no […]

Jan’s Journey – November/December

January 2, 2011 by


November was an interesting month.  My weight continued it’s ups and downs  fora couple of weeks until Samantha suggested I do a fruit flush to  rid my body of the toxins from the various protein powders and  stevia products that I had been trying since we determined I  couldn’t use the whey  protein anymore.  The […]

Jan’s Journey: November

October 31, 2010 by


October was a learning month.  I started the month off great.  I was on a roll of fat burning and then poof!  The fat loss stopped and I started gaining…up 1, down 1, up 2, down 1, up 1, down 2.  What the heck was going on?  I wasn’t cheating but I did change protein […]

Another month…..another 4 lbs dropped…YEAH!  But the big news is fitting into size 14 pants…and that is every pair of size 14 pants that I tried on! This is amazing since I haven’t worn a size 14 for 45 years! I know clothes are bigger now than they used to be but I am still […]

Jan’s Journey: September 2010

September 6, 2010 by


Another month, another 5 lbs lost.  I am finally approaching the lowest weight for me in 30 years.  Just hope my psyche can handle it.  I have tried many times to get below this weight in the last 30 years but have always failed.  I feel I am armed with more info and a more […]

Jan’s Journey: August 2010

August 1, 2010 by


Since I talked about my bad attitude due to the scale not moving downwards very fast last month, I have tried hard to be more positive and delight in making slower progress than I expect of myself.  I have no idea how many inches I have lost but I wear a straight 16 now easily […]
