Jeana

Jeana loves her new body (and being naked). 

on Oct 26, 20100

I am sorry I have been MIA, but the last few weeks have been crazy for me, and I haven't had time to write. I got a bunch of texts from my friend about the Nikki not wanting me as a roommate situation. In Nikki's defense, she is younger and probably really wanted to hook up with one of the hot guys at the hotel, and there were a lot of them.  I know she was just joking, but I was mentally and physically exhausted from the day's workout. I can afford my own room at the fabulous Renaissance, but they wanted us to share, and it hurt my feelings. Usually people are nice to me, so it was unexpected. We had a wonderful time, she is so funny my face hurt from laughing. She treats her purse collection like they are children! Nikki will always have a special place in my heart. She was a great distraction, so we could sneak water when working out! 

The rowing workout was also so much fun, I had done it before, and it will be something I will continue long after the show is over. I got a punching bag and gloves from James Maldanado and really have gotten into punching and kicking. The Pussycat Doll workout was so much fun, I loved it! Robin was a great teacher, and I use that move she taught me every time I brush my teeth. Dancing is a great way to get a workout. It was fun so see Shay enjoy herself so much, I had no idea she loved dancing. She reminds of Kara with her love of dance. She has found her workout!  That's what Jackie has taught all of us, find what gets your body moving and do it. I have learned about nutrition, exercise, weightlifting, mixed martial arts, boxing, booty dancing, and most importantly, to believe in your self and surround yourself with positive people. 

I love Jackie for changing my life, I love having my old body almost back. I look at food as fuel, not a relationship, and I try to inspire everyone to be the best they can be and not settle for less. This has been a great adventure for me and thanks for sharing it! I have to thank Craig for all the encouragement when I didn’t want to do 30 minutes on the Stairmaster. He will be happy to know I run the stairs every Saturday at a local football field for an hour. I work out 5-6 days a week, 3 days of weights with my trainer down in the OC, Rhonda Castillo. Using all the tools from Thintervention, I have been able to eat healthy, make my shake, and take tons of vitamins. I've put a few of my favorite things back in my life, a little pizza, a little alcohol, and a lot of being naked! Moderation baby, that is the name of the game.

 Now for a little catch up on my family. Kara graduates in March with honors! She was Kappa Kappa Gamma at college and really enjoyed it. Colton is in college and loving it, Shane is also in college and both have a job working for Pacific Avalon Charters in Newport Beach. They have learned so much crewing a yacht, and both love their new adventure. I think maybe being a captain is in Shane's future? Their love of the ocean is at an all time high. The boys have grown up so much and gotten so mature, and I am very proud of them. They are very responsible, dedicated sailors! Scout my beloved Doberman died, he drowned, most likely while swimming with his friends. He loved the water and was ready to go to heaven. We have Bella the bulldog still, and Shane has a new puppy so the house has lots of life in it. Both boys are staying home for college and commuting this year. I imagine Colton will transfer to a 4 year school next year.

It was a lot of fun doing this show, and thank you to Michaline and Jen O'Connel for giving me this opportunity to get fit! I enjoyed meeting my new friends, Mandy, Nikki, Joe, Shay, and Bryan (who stole my heart)!

Jeanna: Do not blame Obama (on the Nancy Grace show on 8/19/11) for the absolute MESS that George Bush helped to perpetuate onto our great country. What he did is disgraceful. He sure disappeared after leaving office didn't he? Disappeared knowing everything he okayed was going to hit the fan sooner or later and he knew he was going to be blamed (rightly so) and he felt guilty for what he did. He was such a friend to the big corporations and took away controls and they proceeded to rob us blind. That is why all of this is happening to our country. Obama is left with an unbelievable mess to deal with and I personally feel he is doing a good job. Yes he may need to be tougher in negotiating but on the whole he is doing good with an absolutely impossible situation.

I MISS YOU ON THE SHOW!!! YOU WERE JUST TO "REAL" TO BE ON IT. You had your own hair and COLOR, you're own boobs and where REAL.

THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE NOW=B-O-R-I-N-G! LOL.

Keep standing up for Simon! He needs to go for full custody. HE has morals and class and deserves a woman with the same. The children will be scared with what their Mom is doing on National TV. He should go for full custody and make her pay child care and support! With what she shows on TV it would be easy to do! You're right he tossed her the D--- dog leash and she put up her arm and it hit her. She probably moved so it would! DUH! I hope he has found a real woman with some class and dignity. I want to see her on the show! Eddie is a fool, he'll wake up like Simon did.

Jeana:

I am disappointed that I will no longer see you on the show however, you are better off!

I truly identified with your divorce after a long marriage of endless abuse in all ways and getting back into shape to "get back out there!"

I'm new at the empty nest thing. I am at that point as well but scared to date again. You always seemed very calm and collected, I must say. Your maturity and common sense were the only real thing on the show! You called 'em as you saw 'em! My kind of gal!

Much luck to you and I hope you have lots of fun before you settle down again!

And kudos to you with all of your kids in college and flourishing! That was due to you! I hope they are more respectful to you though, you deserve that much!!

Sincerely, Dawn

Jeana, You look great! I'm so proud of you. Was so happy to see you on Thintervintion. I have missed you on RHOC. You were my favorite housewife. It upset me when Nikki was so rude but you handled the situation with much class. Good luck with whatever you decide to do next. I hope it will be something on TV.

You look great. I'm very happy for you. Although I miss you on the OC show I was glad you left as the women on that show made it an unhealthy environment. I understand Vicky and Don are not together which is sad, but I'm happy for Don, Vicky did not treat him well at all. I hope he finds someone that will appreciate him. I wish the best for you and your family.

Hi Jeana. Just watched the finale (Thank God for DVRs!!). Even though you were disappointed that you didn't reach your goal by the final weigh in- I was happy to see that the show noted that you DID finally reach your goal- and by the way- you looked wonderful at the last weigh in.

Jackie WAS hard on all of you ( I nearly fell off my chair several episodes ago when she told you to, "Stop smiling at the treadmills Jeana!!" LOL) but it was necessary to push you guys in order to get the results that you ALL got!

Congratulations Jeana- you look great!!!

Is Alan your ex-boyfried or your personal chef?!?!? We all recognize him from your date on RHW but now in this show you call him your driver/personal chef?

Jeana--GOOD for you--you look fabulous. Out of all the housewives you were my favorite. Vicki I'm afraid is too self-centered. I hear she and Donn broke up--after the lovely 2nd ceremony last season--its a shame~~I'll take DONN~~ *S* He seems like a very nice person and I don't think Vicki really appreciated him. Hope to see you back on the Housewives not that you are "ready to mingle"!!! Good luck~

I'm sooo happy for you!...I also watched you on the HOC..LOL..and I truly felt it was best for you to leave..in order to concentrate on what made you truly happy. To find what truly was "eating at you" and take the weight off. A friend told me long ago..you can't do it alone..One can be successful loosing it but to keep it off is another head space..and I wondered about the mind/body connection. I've have thought about loosing weight for years and have...but I don't have the support and the time to focus on myself like I used to. I'm currently taking car of my mother with Dementia and 2 teenage boys..plus I work. It's hard to juggle a household and the demons that gnaw at us each day.

Best to you always.

Jeana, I missed the finale (thought I was recording it but somehow didn't), but I see from your notes above that you have almost reached your goal. Big congratulations! You're a great, fun lady and were always one of my favorite Housewives. I was shocked that Nikki was so rude--glad you worked it out--you are always willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. Enjoy that new body!
