    This past Thursday I had an appointment with my endocrinologist (I'm a diabetic) and I thought he was going to throw confetti in the air. He was so impressed with my numbers and the reduction in my weight. My A1C is down from 9 to 6.4, my cholesterol is great, my blood pressure is good. EVERYTHING was where it needed to be, with one exception; I need more iron. I am going to try to remember to take the iron pills I purchased the last time he presented me with this information.

     

    Praise God for the great health report.

  2. Currently I am 20.2 pounds away from achieving my goal! In 45 short weeks I have managed to lose 128.2 pounds! My husband hit his goal on Friday losing a total of 85.6 pounds. He started this journey at 265 pounds and finishes at 179.4! I couldn't be more proud! My family is so much healthier and happier thanks to Jenny Craig and we will be forever grateful.

     

    This journey has been amazing (the good and the bad). I am not blogging this to make anyone feel bad about themselves on their own journeys. Weight loss is an incredibly difficult journey and being knocked down in society is hard enough. My intent is purely to share my successes as well as letting others know that they can do it to. We are not our weight and our weight does not define who we are! We are all on the same journey, but our trips will not be the same. Some lose fast and some will lose slow. Like @missbumble always says, "this is a marathon". If there is ever a time that you want to give up, that you'll never reach your goals...don't. Come to these forums and simply read the stories of others. Send me a message! You can do this!

     

    I was lucky enough to have had my husband on this journey with me, so I already had this great source for support. My center consultant Janie Long has also become more than a consultant to me, I am 100% comfortable with her and know that we will forever be a part of eachother's lives. These last couple of months have been a challenge for me, and I still struggle to understand why they needed to happen, I am finding myself a stronger woman because it did happen. There are going to be good times and there are going to be bad ones as well but as cheesy as it sounds, everything happens for a reason (whether we understand them or not).

    I'm not sure what made me type in "Jenny Craig" on my phone, one night, a few weeks ago.It seems that I have been yo-yo dieting for the last six years. Up 20 lbs, down 25, up 30 again. 

     

    Like many of you, I've given many diets and workout programs a go. Paleo, Whole30, keto, vegan, myfitnesspal, crossfit etc. I seem to be really good at losing 20 pounds, but its past that mark where I usually fall off the wagon. When I started Jenny two weeks ago, I weighed 220lbs. The highest I've ever weighed. My goal weight is 140lbs. 

     

    I feel like I don't look like myself. I feel physically big. I don't like taking pictures. Working out is not fun anymore. I live in yoga pants and sweat shirts. I don't like being naked. I want to be thin again and I need help. I needed to do something different. 

     

    I'm a super busy professional with no time to meal prep or plan. Worse, if I was counting calories, I'd feel overwhelmed. Tracking food is a part time job, plus I get obsessive about it. Worse, I try to break the rules. 

     

    I needed a meal plan where I just buy the food and eat it. 

     

    So far Jenny has been AWESOME. What I love is honestly the food. I don't feel hungry, except sometimes in the evenings. Its tasty. I honestly cannot complain and this is coming from someone who thought they'd HATE prepackaged foods. 

     

    In 2 weeks, I am down...drum roll please...7.4 pounds!!!! crazy. I feel great. 

     

    Thanks Jenny!

    Hey yeah guys,

     

    It's been forever since I posted this is my new blog, hopefully I keep at it with this. I'm going back to Jenny tomorrow and starting on Sunday. I've done this program so many times that hopefully this is the last time that I'm on it. I'm gonna work my butt off to be able to keep off this weight because, I'm so tired of the heartburn and being tired all the time. Can't wait to start this journey again and hopefully for the last time. Praying this works, so they say 3 times the charm that it works? about 5th time?? 

     

    I'll see you guys in a week!

  5. Breakfast item variety

    Hello, 

    as I don’t eat beef but I am tempting to eat this dish. It looks delicious but can you bring a version in chicken. 

    Some more variety such as baked chicken wings with plain rice. Chicken rolls baked. 

    Chicken hot dogs with whole wheat bun. 

  6. Hi Team!

     

    I lost another 2.6#! 


    I keep thinking I'm tricking the scale - except I wear the same clothes, I eat breakfast and lunch then stop eating/drinking at noon (for my 3pm weigh in), and while weight fluctuates - it doesn't fluctuate by more than 11 pounds! :)

     

    Easter candy got me one day last week and then AGAIN today at the office. But I'm working from home tomorrow and getting re-focused and re-committed! I love to re-focus and re-commit. I've done it my whole life. BUT I'm finally re-focusing/re-committing the SAME DAY I wander off the plan, instead of waiting for the next Monday, the next 1st of the month, the next whatever. So I had some candies at work. But at dinner, I ate my JC meal, my big salad, and I skipped my snack (I sort of treated it like the candy HAD BEEN my snack. The cut-off eating time helps a lot with this as well. If I'm going to go nuts, it's likely to happen after dinner, after the kids are in bed, when I'm alone, that sort of thing. But since I have a 12 hour window, I have to stop by 7pm (though I've been trying to aim for 6pm... my kids are young, they don't mind an early dinner). I literally put a cookie to my lips, saw that it was 8pm, and stuck it back in the bag. I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE!!! 

     

    I talk to my 6 year old son a lot about "being strong on the the inside." He's obsessed with strength and speed - he wants to lift weights, he demonstrates his ability to lift heavy objects, it's a thing. So when we're struggling to tell the truth, or to share, or to use kind words - I remind him that these are feats of strength! You have to be really, really strong on the inside to tell the truth, etc. 

    Well: I think I'M getting strong on the inside! And it's not at all like I anticipated. It's not like I'm suddenly strong enough to execute the perfect plan I've mapped out in the past - vegetarian or vegan eating, cutting out food groups, cutting out sugar completely, etc. I'm not doing those things. BUT I am strong enough to get back on plan after a slip-up, so that it IS just a slip up instead of a habit/addiction/way of life.

    I was in a small group (like a Bible study - it's a church thing) a few weeks before I started the program, and we take time to pray and to listen for anything God might be saying. We're real flexible with it - like, instead of agonizing over "was that thought MY thought, or was that God's voice???" we say: just try. If you think you've got a word, share it. Then, others can say, "oh yes, that applies to me!" or not, and it's no pressure. Of course, if anything contradicted the Bible, we wouldn't be down, but otherwise, we just sort of have a "we're practicing" kind of idea. So we all get quiet, and the thing I think God is saying to me is: "no more 'end-of-days' eating". This is what my friends and I call that eating practice in which you are starting a diet tomorrow to you eat everything you can think of that sounds good today - a real binge. And I remember thinking, "I can do that. I can just do that." And so I did for a couple weeks, and then I joined Jenny Craig, and I really feel like I'm getting some honest-to-goodness TRACTION. 

     

    This isn't just a 2 pound fluctuation. This isn't a 5 pound loss in one week that came right back the next week. 

     

    11.6# is real. 4 weeks on the program - with SOME slip-ups, but NO binges - is real. 

     

    Thank for reading!

    I notice my first change!   About to complete my second week on JC and one of my shirts that used to be too tight fits!   Excited.  First change I have noticed.  Many are to follow.

    🍀Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! 🍀

     

    So I wanted to share my success from this week! So after being knocked down to a 1200 calorie diet after my disappointing 0.6 lb loss last week, I am excited to tell you that I lost 4.4 lbs this week!!! I made sure I had an empty bladder before my weigh in (since last time I learned that it can add about 0.6 lbs to your weight) and I worked out twice during the week. I never felt hungry and I had a ton of energy. 

     

    Lessons learned in my first 3 weeks of JC-RR:

    1. Check your plan for correct program (regular or RR)

    2. Pee before you get on the scale 

    3. If you aren't losing weight, talk to your JCC about going down on calories

    4. Don't beat yourself up if you cheat one day, you can always come back the next week

     

    Now, I have been asked why I am not telling my mom about being on the plan. It is because of the price of the plan and her lack of success on the plan in the past. She thinks it is a waste of money because she didn't lose. So I am planning on losing enough weight for her to notice the difference in me, and if she asks how I've lost the weight, I'll tell her. 

     

    Last week I was extremely busy and rarely had a moment to rest, so I think that may have kept my hunger down. This week will be a challenge because I will be back at work and will have a lot of time sitting and having "boredom hungry". I am going to get some sugar-free gum and hope that it, plus drinking a lot of water, will help to keep me from getting too hungry so I do not over eat and go over my 1200 calories.

    Today is day 7 on Rapid Results for me. I made it through week one! So much to learn. I'm so thankful everybody on this site is so nice and helpful! My consultant is so knowledgable as well.

    This week I learned that you must not mix and match meals on each day, but you can change the order of days. And also tricks to keep the 12 hour replenish time rule.

    A little bit about me, I'm 55 years old, happily married, and step mother to 4 children total, two with my hubby. Ages 31-26-18 and now 17. Our 18 year old is off in the Navy, and he has been chosen to be in the Ceremonial Guard, in D.C. for two years! So proud of him! We could watch him on the computer today, marching in a parade. Our just turned 17 year old is a junior in high school. She is very sensitive, and very talented! She likes to play soccer, lacrosse, and run track, and is a good student. However, she reminds me of the saying, "still waters run deep". She is a mystery, at times!

    My hubby is supportive of the JC program, so its going well. I don't think I would have lasted, if he wasn't!

    I have some good habits developing so far. Of course, the not eating after 8 p.m. is first. Also, no cream and sugar in my tea. Drinking my water, and getting back into exercise. And of course, no night snacking'! That is the hardest!

    I do work outside of the home, and am slowly building my own practice as a psych NP. This is a real challenge! If you make it, or you don't, its all on you! I'm kind of an introvert, so having to put myself out there can be tough. Also, learning to run a business and be organized, can be overwhelming. Many days, I doubt myself. Taking care of my patients is the best part. <3 I love when I feel that "click" with the patient. This is the biggest challenge I have going on right now!

    The best part of the week was losing 6.8 pounds!!!!

    I did not think I would lose that much :)

    My goal is to lose about 50 pounds, I'll see how I feel when I get closer. I'm older, so want to see how my skin looks, lol.

    My favorite foods so far: the Cheeseburger, cinnamon rolls, mac and cheese, and chicken fettucini. and any sweet dessert, lol. I didn't like the chicken pot pie!

    Well, thats a little bit about my week, and about me!

    Thanks, everybody, for making me feel so welcome..........

    Today was my first day back on plan after 5 years.  I was able to maintain my weight loss over the past years but had a very bad year that has spun me out of control and unable to get my bearings on my own.  I'm someone who has always struggled with depression and anxiety, but this past year was marked by a health crisis for my husband and the loss of my father.  I have allowed myself some leeway because of the nature of these struggles, but I am very very hard on myself.  In the past few months, I've gained about 15 lbs. and as a result have done nothing but beat myself up and spin further into depression.  I want to keep myself focused and accountable as I begin this journey.  I want to be kinder to myself and as supportive of myself as I truly am of others.  I want everyone to be happy and achieve their goals, but when it comes to myself, I struggle with this.  So this isn't just about losing 20 lbs. for me.  This is about shifting my mindset to one of support and acceptance of myself.  I want to celebrate even the smallest of successes and lean on others who truly understand the struggle when obstacles arise.  I am hoping to grow as a result of this experience so that I am stronger, not for weighing less, but as a result of slowing down and being kinder and fairer to myself.  I am proud of the fact that I made it through the first day successfully.  I am proud that I finally took action after months of complaining about being unhappy with how much weight I've gained.  I"m ready to do this!

     

    “Knowing Is Not Enough; We Must Apply. Wishing Is Not Enough; We Must Do.”- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

  12. I fell a little behind on the forums and keeping up with my blog, because last week, I got hit with a NASTY bug... an awful sinus infection!!

     

    It started on Wednesday night, I woke up in the middle of the night with a sore throat, and by Thursday morning I was coughing a lot. I was still functional, it was really just the sore throat at that point, so I kind of prayed that it was allergies and powered through my day.

     

    Well, late Thursday night I woke up and could hardly fall back to sleep, because that's when the sinus problems really started. Oh, boy I was NOT a happy camper. Friday morning, I woke up to terrible sinus pain. I had to survive a client meeting in the morning, but I left right away and went home afterward. I tried to rest, but the pain was so terrible, any shifting at all and my sinuses would just throb and throb. I finally managed to fall asleep at 7pm and woke up on Saturday morning. The pain had gone down by a significant margin, though it was still lingering in the background and I was pretty congested.

     

    But, I committed to work an adoption event at the city shelter that day, so I got my meds, packed a bunch of extra tissues and water, and helped 10 dogs (and 1 cat) get adopted that day! (and by helped, I mean I stood around a lot, but I did answer questions, direct traffic, got people connected with their volunteers and adoption counselors, etc, so it was a lot of "hurry up and wait" but it was good)

     

    So, through all of this, it was really, really hard to eat. I just didn't feel like it. I made myself eat some things, but it was not easy. Then, when I finally got a little bit of appetite back on Saturday night/Sunday, it's like my body latched onto all the food and doesn't want to let it go. Before the sickness set in, I was down a few pounds, and then when I wasn't able to eat, I was down even more. But, when I weighed myself this morning, I'd gained it all back. I deviated from plan just a little bit (I got some hot and sour soup to clear my sinuses, and had some crackers, and I did have a couple cookies when nothing else sounded good but I really needed to eat), but not that much, so I was surprised that it all came back as soon as I was able to eat with a normal appetite again. So, I'm a bit disappointed, but I will keep on trucking - illness just sucks and I had to get through it to get to the other side.

    I am in my third week back on the program.  It has been a challenge but I am staying the course.  My family doctor put me on some heavy duty antibiotics for a horrible sinus infection.  I found out that the antibiotic that I am taking has a side effect of rapid weight gain <_< so  I have been drinking a ton of water and staying true to the menus because the last thing I want to see, at my weekly weigh in, is jump in my weight.  My first week I lost a little over a pound and then last week I lost three pounds.  So very excited!!  Good news, two more days of antibiotics.  Yippee!!

    I have some younger co-workers who are working hard to get back into shape and are trying to eat as clean as possible.  They are a great inspiration to me and have helped me stay true to the program.  They encourage me to drink my water and if I go to long with out eating they remind me it is time for my snack or go have lunch.  It's wonderful when people care and reach out to help.  

     

    February 1st is my goal date to begin walking workouts again.  I have been in physical therapy for a bum shoulder and hips that are out of whack.  I'm hoping I will have made enough progress to once again add exercise back into my daily routine.  Missing my walks!! 

    That's all for now :)

  15. Had to try my new bundt pan, so I made this non-recipe: 

     

    1 box of Pillsburry Sugar-Free Vanilla Cake

    1 can (15 oz) Libby's pumpkin puree

    3/4 cup milk or water

    pure vanilla extract, optional

     

    Mix and bake at 325 for about 30 minutes. Makes 16 generous servings (98 cal, 1.5 g fat, 26 g carbs, 1.9 g protein).

    Next time I may try greek yogurt instead of milk. Not yet sure if this freezes well.

    I am going to have to figure out what I want to do about binging. It's a habit I have for the most part avoided in the last year or two. It comes on me out of the blue. Like for instance today I was so happy about my weigh in, both at home and at Jenny. Down 1.4. But I was almost blacking out at home. Not sure why. I didn't want to eat before my weigh in but I did have an Anytime bar to tide me over. Today I had ordered Planned Menu #1 and as I was going over it I noticed it included a Breakfast Chocolate Muffin. That is a very bad breakfast choice for me. So what do I do when I get home. I dive for that muffin. I even ate the paper. Ok next I want more chocolate so I have my snack early (10:30 am) -- Cookies and Cream Cake. Hmm. There's also the Breakfast Cinnamon Rolls and I could count them as today's Lunch, no? Done. Hmmm. Almost done with my binge. Almost. What else is there? How about the chocolate lava cake? Done. Ok let's go to MFP and look at the damage. If i add in the 7 oz Chardonnay I know I'm going to have (it's once a week wine Friday) it comes to 976. Ok. I will have JC Fish & Chips for dinner and a salad without dressing. That will bring me to 1216 plus salad. Ok it's just a smudge over the calorie threshold but probably screwed up my carbs and sugars big time. But I'm saying this is my plan and it's not even noon yet. Can I keep to this? 

    Also, long term, I think I am going to have to forego the 10% planned menu discount and substitute any items like muffins, cinnamon rolls and sweet desserts for something not sweet because realistically is it worth about $20 a week to be tempted to binge like this? I don't think so.

    Now the funny thing is our house is full of sweets, courtesy of my husband. But I have trained myself to bypass them or allow myself only the tiniest portion. I also never pick up treats when out shopping and neither am I tempted to get in the car or walk somewhere (we have a bakery at the end of our block and a frozen yogurt across the street) and buy a treat. So this latest binge is just a newer form of temptation which I need to strategize around.

    One of these days, I'll learn to not pat myself on the back so quickly.  It always seems to follow with a crash of some sort.  I feel like I set myself up for failure.  It seems I just can't feel good about an accomplishment until I complete the project.  In this case, the project is my healthy eating and weight loss.  Why do I do this to myself?  It's as if all my demons come out of the close and talk me down. 

     

    So... to the point of the food issue:  I had some sibling family issues that I took to heart before I bounded onto a bus for an overnight trip to see the Rockettes in NYC.  The family issues didn't appear to bother me on the outside.  I wasn't really thinking about them, but subliminally they probably caused me some sadness (a food trigger for me).  The person I was on the trip with also encouraged me to be off plan for the weekend and enjoy whatever I wanted to eat.  OK, yes.  I didn't want to eat JC food or think about it.  The meals on the trip were pre-ordered.  I did fine until I got hungry. I'm assuming I got hungry because my JC plan fills me up with lots of crunchy veges, to which I didn't have access.  I got on the scale when I returned and gained 2.5 pounds in 2 days.  TWO DAYS!  I should mention that 3 days later, it's all off BUT!   

     

    It's not a big deal to have a weekend off plan, so long as we go right back into JC as soon as we're back to reality.  I'm still in learning phase and this is learning for a lifetime.  I accomplished the task of returning to plan, but something was different this time.  I really, REALLY didn't want to go back on plan.  It took all I could to muster in my strength to get back on the wagon. 

     

    In the past I would not have continued.  I would have been disgusted with myself.  This time?  I just don't know.  I'm committed.  I'm ready to get to goal.  I just have to stop beating myself up about the bad days.

     

    How do you clear your mind so that you don't sabotage your good work?

  18. Due to travel, company, social obligations, and unexpected car repairs, I have been "off plan" for almost 3 weeks in a row!  YIKES!  Fortunately, I am using my JC menus from prior weeks to try and "re-create" similar menus from my own kitchen.  I am still doing the cottage cheese, Greek yogurt with fruit, string cheese, almonds, etc. for my snacks and then trying to create healthy, small-portion meals that are similar to a JC frozen entree.  I have been making veggie kabobs, grilled chicken, vegetable soups, tuna and chicken salad, and a breakfast taco, omelette, or egg sandwich.  I cook for my Women's Group from church once a week, which actually hasn't been a problem--for some reason, when I am preparing a meal for others, I tend not to eat much because I have no appetite after all the food prep! Hoping to get back on plan next week, but I'm pleased that I have still managed to lose 5 pounds doing my own thing, which is going to be important for maintenance--not to go back to my bad habits and continue cooking healthy options and managing portion sizes.  I do need to get my fitness regimen going.  I've been walking the dogs a couple days a week and doing some strengthening exercises, but now that it is getting darker earlier, I need to put my exercise DVDs and stationary bike to better use.  It is just so hard for me to fit exercise into my schedule on weekdays.  I have lost about 10 pounds since I re-started, so I am on track.  Lots of people have commented that I look like I have lost weight, and my clothes certainly fit better, although I can't quite go down a dress size quite yet.  I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, so I am anxious to see if it has made a difference on my blood work.

    I am really enjoying the program so far.  I like not having to worry about planning my meals.  I am training to do a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning and eating right is giving me more energy! I have a dinner plan for tomorrow night.  I am a little nervous about it.  Any pointer anyone has would be greatly appreciated!  I will eat my meals as planned and save my fats for dinner.  Bread and butter is my downfall.  I hope I can be strong enough to resist!

    I did JC back in my early 20's and it worked great for me.  I'm now 43, had a hysterectomy and my body chemistry changed and I have put on some weight.  My goal is 50 lbs.  I'm ready!

    Who am I?  I mean I KNOW my name, where I live, the career I built, and the family I love, but when I look in the mirror, I don't recognize myself.  I'm crossing a bridge I couldn't wait to get to, and now am not sure HOW I got here.  Where did the time go?  When did I quit adding tampons to my shopping list?  When did midnight become late, and the thought of "burnin' it down" means  a bubble bath with wine, and my sweet husband rubbing my feet?

    I don't want to let time take over, and give in to gravity (which begins with the same four letters as grave).  All these hormonal emotions standing upright on sensible wedges instead of hot stilletos, brought me to this virtual space for my physical and cyber journey to find my waist line, and confidence again.  I placed my first two week order today, but it won't arrive until next Friday.  That's okay because I need ready myself with affirmations, prayers, and raindances. although I live in Texas, and post Hurricane Harvey, the former is exclusively metaphorical.  I welcome your input and motivation strategies along the way. 

    Ya-Ya,

    ~A~

    I am excited. I rejoined Jenny today. I feel more motivation this time around. I made a fancy signature and everything! I want to do the labor day challenge even though I am late to join it I think. That is ok. I still want to lose weight for Labor Day and for lots of other future days. I want this time to really stick with the program. My problem is I give up easily. I get very discouraged and I don't know how to talk myself out of how I am feeling. I can be very negative and discouraging for myself. Today my consultant talked with me about the child within that is having a temper tantrum when I want to overeat or eat something I shouldn't be having. I need to learn how to talk to myself. I guess this is my inner child?  I know I get very anxious and the only way it seems sometimes to calm myself is to eat a lot of food. I want to learn healthier ways of being. 

     

    I think I'm going to use this blog as a public journal. Hopefully no one will leave a hateful comment. But I feel safe in this community. I have read what other people have written. A long time ago I wrote something here and people were nice and helpful to me. 

  23. Journey update:  I am almost 5 months into Maintenance and just want to report in that maintenance has good overall - I've had a few too many BBQ outings and a couple of vacations this summer that has me needing more accountability lately - so decided I need to keep posting my Journey!  Weight Maintenance at my age is more work than I wish it was - but worth every ounce of effort!!  I feel great and have WAY more energy than I did a year ago!  Yeah!  This photo was taken over the 4th of July.

    My body hated me so much when I started JC. Thought I'd use my blog debut to record all the weight related issues I faced/am facing:

    • A chronic cough due to GERD that I'd had for 16 mos.
    • Plantar fasciitis in both feet
    • Aching knees
    • Low energy
    • Lower back pain
    • Inability to do things I used to easily, like cross my legs, go for long walks, skate and hike up hills with the ease of a mountain goat.

    I just started JC 3 weeks ago, but I've lost 10 lbs, my chronic cough has gone away and my feet and lower back are already feeling a little better. I still have 73 lbs to lose and it gets overwhelming thinking of just how long it's going to take to get back to a healthy weight so I can't let myself dwell on it. I can only focus on sticking with the diet for today, so that's what I do.
