I have tried to lose weight many times. Some time I'm sure I'll share all the details of my many weight loss exploits but I don't have the desire or energy to do so right now. But I've been to that party many times.
So as I approach making healthy choices, I thought I would use JentoLose to focus both on what I am LOSING and what I am GAINING. My hope is that this will prove encouraging and inspiring to me as I face the daily challenges that arise.
So the LOSING -- Of course this refers to the NUMBERS! Got to have the numbers -- weekly weigh ins, measurements, etc, etc. And I'm going to share all of my numbers. I figure, what the hell. The pounds are on my body--I'm not hiding them from anyone. I'm putting myself out there on Jentolose. I might as well bear it all. It is me. Let me clarify. The numbers are NOT me, but they reflect where I am right now. The numbers don't define me. They are a tool I can use as I track my weight loss progress.
And the GAINING -- So why not focus on all of the good stuff that will happen as I commit to taking care of myself. I'm tempted to list here all of those great things that I hope to gain--like feeling better, more energy, health, etc, etc, but I'm going to stop. And I'm going to let my journey decide what those are. But I'm going to document the GAIN.
Losing and Gaining--that's what Jentolose is all about. Notice the sidebars (losing on the left; gaining on the right)--still not perfectly happy with the layout. But who's perfect?
