After a little less than a year, with the help of my Spark friends and Jenny Craig, I lost the 52 pounds I'd wanted gone baby gone! Now I have the challenge of maintaining, of making healthy habits a lifestyle change instead of just a fad diet. It's a challenge, but I'm working on it, and one thing I've learned is that I can do it if I put my mind to it!

Member Since: 3/25/2008

Fitness Minutes: 36,049

My Goals:
Maintain, maintain, maintain - and make sure it's part of my life. I also need to incorporate exercise as a normal part of my day.

My life schedule has altered dramatically - I watch my young niece and nephew during the day and work retail at night, so I get little sleep and little time to exercise. I'm working on carving out time to handle the chores (laundry, dishes, etc.) while also getting time for what i enjoy (computer time, television and reading time) and time to exercise and plan my day. I'm definitely learning the value of nap time!

My Program:
I still talk to my awesome Jenny Craig consultant, although we speak once a month now instead of every week. I still order JC food now and again, because I like the food, and they have some great options for people with little time.

Personal Information:
My name's Katreniah (big surprise - I love my name, so I'm also using it as my handle). I love reading and television, and I'm a huge fan of multitasking. For example, I love hula hooping while I watch some of my programs. I highly recommend the exercise. I currently live in Maryland but was born in Virginia. I've also lived in Ohio (for about 2 years of college), New York City, and Anchorage, AK. I love to travel and do it as much as I can.

Other Information:
I currently live with my sister and help her and my brother-in-law with the kids. It's been a win-win situation all 'round.

    I made part of a beef roast in beef broth, with onions and mushroom soup, then had the gravy over a baked potato. It was delicious. I didn't have to venture out into the cold. Hubby said, depending on the weather, he might be home on Wednesday.

    My daughter-in-law got the van tonight, Saturday night.

    My husband and son are in Wyoming and I will spend Thanksgiving by myself. It's cold and windy here. My son plans on taking my van to go back and forth to work leaving me with no vehicle until my husband gets home. He will be driving our son's car back from Wyoming, while our son flies back home.
