Introducing...

Thank God for other bloggers. I've been reading a ton of weight loss blogs over the past year, but I never comment. Now that I have my own blog though and I've linked to a few of my favorites, I guess I should let you guys know who I am. When I started this blog I was terrified of using my real name. But you know what? If these amazing ladies can do it, so can I. My name is Jeni! Yay!

After reading Wendy's post today, I got to thinking. I have changed. Even though I may screw up every time I go to my mom's house for dinner, I still know how to get back on the horse and do this weight loss thing. I went to Panera for lunch today and had a salad today instead of the mayo-licious tuna that I love. And I didn't have a cookie. So I'm doing good. In fact I'm doing great. I kick ass! (This is just a little positive self-talk, so bear with me).

My weigh-in is tomorrow, and while I don't really expect a loss, I think I should be okay. And if I'm not, I'll be okay next week.

Hi, Jeni - welcome to the blogging world! I'm finding it to be a really good tool for me. And I really love connecting with all cool people like you that I'd otherwise never have a chance to know. Feel free to link to me, of course - I'm honored that you'd want to do so.

I think the positive self-talk is good. I myself have not yet been able to get into this habit, but I do think it's really important and DEFINITELY something for me to work on. So good on you for doing it already! You are right to commend yourself. We've gotta pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS THING! And ps, congratulate ourselves for doing so because it is a victory. Cheers!

Hello - I saw your comment on Erin's site and came here.

Just wanted to drop a note of encouragement about doing a 5K. I did my first one two weeks ago, and then another yesterday. Before February, I had never done any running and wasn't very fit at all - so it's not as hard as I feared it was. And when you get there, you find lots of other people are doing it for the first time too. I find having a goal to work towards is a big help in staying motivated.

Anyway, whatever you decide, best of luck with everything. Our blogs are template twins, by the way...

Welcome! Glad you introduced yourself. It's an amazingly motivating community. I don't know if I would be were I was without it.
