The drive from OC to LA has been a killer for me. An hour and a half in the car leaves me dragging, and the days are all starting to run together. I usually get home and go right to bed. You can tell that I am quiet and tired the first few weeks. That's if you can spot me. Most of the time I would just duck my head and workout, even my family had trouble finding me in the gym.
But by the third week of Thintervention things start to get a little easier for me. My body is starting to be able to do 30 minutes of cardio without quitting. I feel so much stronger and healthier already. Eating the correct portions and following Jackie's book, "This Is Why You're Fat," has really helped me. My energy level is really picking up!
I think next week when they all drive down to the OC to work out you will see a different Jeana. The days that my friend, Allan, can drive me and I can catch a nap in the back makes it so much easier. I get a lot of criticism about my friend and his role in all this. It is hard to make huge changes in your life on camera, and I admire him for taking the steps to get out of his own abusive relationship, and thankful that he can steer me through my own. I'm dating a few different guys and none of them are really right for me. They each do have something to offer, although Bryan's comment about my having rich men is laughable. My men may be rich in personality and looks, but no one supports me but me. Since I'm not able to continue dating three guys, I'll just wipe the slate clean and start over. I'm not willing to settle at this point in my life; I want it all. I am the supporting person in most of my relationships but I want it to be 50/50. I don't want to do all the relationship work anymore. Driving to LA for a date -- not happening.
I feel like you will find Mr. Right when you become happy within yourself.:) You are doing great, keep up the good work!
I commend you for doing the show. I think you are a great person inside, now you are working on the outside.
Jeana, I am glad you are working on YOU and feeling better about yourself! I missed you on the last season of RHOC. I hope you come back, you have alot to offer and the other ladies need you! Keep up the good work and God bless!
I hope that you don't come back to HWOOC, because that show is toxic. Alot of people have been rooting for you all along. Just keep moving forward honey. I know that it's hard to change your lifestyle, especially when your depressed, but not changing it only makes you more depressed. My partner had a stroke a few months ago, but she is doing better, and we are working on getting rid of some of this excess baggage off of us. We take baby steps, but at least we are taking the steps. Good luck with everything, you deserve all the good!
I was so glad to see you on this show. You were always my favorite on the RHOC,and you are missed by many viewers. I think you got off there at the right time, as the show has really turned to trash and just crazy whiney party ladies.
I hope you meet your goal weight, and continue to grow to love yourself as much as many others feel real love for YOU as a great person. Your health will be better if you hit your goal....as far as your appearance.....you ALWAYS did and WILL look like a classy woman.
Sorry to read about the wonderful fire fighter that lost his life.Prayers for his family.
I love that you are doing well. Keep up the good work. You are one special lady and do not need to be on rhoc. I love the show.
Your decision to go on this show for guidance in achieving inner healing and weight loss says alot about your character. Continue to strive for your goals and know that you are an inspiration to me to want to make my health a priority.
Jeana, your best step in life was to leave Real Housewives! My thoughts are that you concentrate on Jeana from what you need from yourself, not from someone else. No matter how much you date or hang with friends, they don't make who you are, you are the only one that can change how you feel about yourself and once you come to that inner peace, you will find more positive support around you!!! Then maybe that Mr. Right will come along, or you might decide that you don't really need anyone to make you complete. You are a beautiful person (inside and out), just believe in yourself and you'll be just fine!!!!
Stop getting in your own way. Stop with the excuses get out there and be all that you are supposed to be
You go Jeana! losing weight is never easy, especially if your heart and mind aren't dedicated to it. You have to heal yourself before you can move forward and please don't be doing this for anyone except for yourself. I think you're a phenomenal person and you can do this! Keep motivated, no matter how much of a b*tch Jackie seems to be, she is trying to help you all learn to help yourselves. Go for it, you can do this!
Jeanna I was so shocked and happy when I happened to catch this show on TV and saw that you were in it! Honestly, I probably wouldn't continue watching this show if you were not on it. You are one of my favorites from the HW show. You are so sweet and genuinely caring, and you remind me of my friends mom. She's a former Playboy Bunny from the original chicago club! You both have that spark about you. You're awesome and such a great person. I am curious, why not just rent a place in LA while the show tapes? Or hire a driver? Then you wouldn't have to stress out about driving back and forth in that god awful traffic!
