  4. That's a lot of stress. I don't do well in hotels. Tend to stay in and eat alone. Focus on you!! You had a great client meeting. You are doing a good job. Don't worry about everyone else. Write down why you're eating-that helps me. And get ready for the next time those feelings come-plan out a response/reaction. And stay off the scale if you're using it to beat yourself up. Relax!! We all screw up.
  5. Things that have changed from 278.4 to 232: a size 20 pants to a 16. a size 10.5 ring to a 9 (smaller now, need to be resized.) an 8.5 wide shoe to just an 8.5 My denture no longer fits without adhesive. (Weird I know) My glasses need to be adjusted (not a huge difference, but still) Currently I am sitting at 232 pounds. I have lost 46.4 pounds since starting on June 26th, 2017 and I have 102 more pounds to lose. These past couple of weeks have been chalk full of stress and drama and honestly, I think that my Jenny plan and goals are a large reason for me not losing my mind. I have always been a stress eater and difficult times scare me. I am a wife and mother of two, I work a full time job as a shift supervisor and I am attending college online to obtain my bachelor's in HR Management. I realize with how hectic my life is, that there is always going to be a good amount of stress and that it is going to be important for me to learn how to handle it correctly. We all have those days that we feel like it is not worth it, that we are never going to meet our goals, but I refuse to believe it! I quit smoking on Christmas Eve of 2016 and I have not looked back. I will not let myself use the excuse of stress as a reason to stuff my face. I realize that it sounds easier said than done, and others may struggle more, but I am not passing judgement; I only want to help. Having a good support system is great, but you also have to believe in yourself. Ultimately you are responsible for your actions. I have found a huge amount of support from this group. If at anytime you are struggling, and feel like giving up, or you just need to vent: reach out I am here and willing to listen whenever. No judgement.
  6. Easy to make too. Chopped chicken breast, onion, celery, grapes instead of cranberries (less sugar and fresh) chopped almonds or walnuts. I like to use 1/2 low fat Mayo and 1/2 Nonfat plain Greek yogurt. Spices of choice and yum! Some recipes I've seen use canned chicken breast, I've never bought the canned but it would make it easy. I have rotisserie chicken from Costco now and will make this for my lunch today.
  7. I don't have a Costco near me but have Sams club so will check theirs

    I can so relate to this blog. I have been overweight for the last 20 plus years. Sometimes I feel like I will never see a normal weight number again, and then I return to the forum, and these blogs, and am inspired all over again! I’ve lost 19 so far, and another 45 to go. Ounce by ounce, I tell myself! You can do this, FINALLYonmyway!!!!!
  9. I LOVE that salad at Costco! I haven’t bought it in a while……thanks for reminding me!!
  10. If you run out of JC chicken salad kits Costco has a good one that is made with Greek yogurt, cranberries and almonds. It's in the refrigerated area 140 calories. Would be good with whole grain crackers or as a sandwich or just a salad.
  11. Sounds like you have a good plan. Traveling is a huge trigger for eating for many of us and you have the extra stress of work and the hurricane. Not drinking is always a good start! Lots of protein, whole grains, fruit and veggies and you'll be fine. The chickpeas you're giving up are pretty healthy, 1/4 cup in a salad is filling. Whole fresh foods is a good way to go. You do so much exercise and need fuel. Hopefully the stress will lesson and it will get easier. Your company wouldn't have you there if you weren't one of their stars!

    Hey there! Welcome back to Jenny. I would come back to the forum - DAILY> Make this time different - and lets do this together. I had 60 pounds to lose.. and of course tried everything including jenny a bazillian times. I am 54 and Jenny is working. So I know where you are at - and Ill be here as you go through your journey. Its not over for me - I wish I could magically not want to overeat.. This is the best I have done in a very long time - and I work at it. But it is so much easier than it wa... and being thin (Size 6) is sooooo amazing. (OK being a 14 was amazing too!!!!! ) just getting the pounds to start coming off.. and being active. I just bought a racquet ball racquet - hoping to do that in Atlanta during the week as i travel. (IN additon to my gym class at Orange Theory in the morning). So being active is fun (And hard) and you are on your way. Hey Skinny!! You got this!! 1 Year ago I was just sarting out.. 1 year from now we will both be thin!!!!
  13. You can do this as long as you can get back on track PDQ! Reread all the wonderful advice you have posted for others!!!!
  14. Sue, you have done great and I know you are committed to continue on the healthy path. It is so hard to find a balance, isn’t it? I admire you for your self-reflection and honesty. I know all too well the struggles with insecurity…..please reach out if you want to chat. I agree with Theresa above—we are only human! And I feel so fortunate to have you on this journey with me.

    So... here I am. I'm not new to this. In fact, I probably could become a weight loss consultant myself! This is my third time being back at Jenny Craig. If anything, I'm consistent at returning. But why am I here ... again? Well, if you're like me, you've tried everything and anything on the planet to lose weight and keep it off. You would get so far- seem "ok" with your success; stop the program and then gain it all back.... and sometimes gain more weight than when you last started. You've been so desperate at times, you were willing to sacrifice everything just to lose the weight you've always wanted. Perhaps, like me, you've never been thin. You can't imagine ever being thin .... but you want to be there....thin, healthy, happy, active. Perhaps, like me, you've resigned yourself to always being a "big gal/guy." Perhaps, like me, you've become mad, annoyed, angry (or hangry) saying to yourself - "WHY AM I TRYING TO CONFORM TO WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT? I think I'm healthy - so what if I'm overweight? I'm trying to love myself for who I am. I think I look sexy. My clothes look just fine on me." You become resentful of the weight loss people trying to give you rules and making you follow a program. You hate yourself because you've gotten to this point. You stop following the program. You lie to your consultant and say it's all good, then quit. You tell yourself you can do it on your own. Ok. Who am I kidding? I know I'll never be happy until I reach my goal. It's unfinished business for me. It has been for more than 30 years. Today, I'm more than 60 pounds overweight. This IS a challenge. This IS hard, at times. I know can all do it, but not initially on my own. I need to lean on other like-minded people, like my consultant and JC threads to get through the initial phase. I need to recognize that, right now, I don't have the wherewithal to do it myself. Which is why I all got smart and came back to Jenny Craig for the third time. I know it works. I just need to get to the finish line. Check back with me in a few weeks. I want to make sure I remember I wrote this after my first week of "Third Time's a Charm." I'm hopeful that I'll keep up this momentum.
  16. I'm here if you want to. talk. I know about insecurities, I have them daily. No matter what the scale says you have done marvelously and a pound or two doesn't make a fail. Just makes us human. Love ya
  17. OK So these past two weeks I have been staying at a hotel in Atlanta and eating out for most meals (though they have Publix and Whole Foods... so I did not have to) . Also Drinking wine (a couple of glasses) each night. Net net weigh in this morning - I will be up a pound or three. People say the eating comes form stress- I think it also is insecurity, So surrounded by really bright stars from my company on ,my new project doing something I am not the worlds leading expert in (go figure). creating Decks on information I need to glean - and do not know.... and comparing my self to others.. recipe for uncomfortable feelings. Last night on the plane I ate a bunch - so just acting out like a kid. And that was after a very successful client meeting. Anyway I talked to my Mom about it... and decided to write down my food. Limit the drinking (No drinking the next 2 weeks) etc. ON my way to JC in a few... so need to plan this out. @Crayola64always gets me - and said cereal may be a trigger. I think I don't handle lactose well too. So going to put the brakes on that, Make my meals less exciting Breakfasts - Concierge Lounge or Cafeteria at client. 2 hard boiled eggs (instead of scrambled - where I never know if I took too much and always want more) Bowl of fresh fruit - how bout using the small lbowl.. cup size gives it boundaries Snack: Water, water Snack Yogurt Lunch JC Chicken Salad Kit and salsd (no onions or broccoli) and Skinny girl dressing - no croutons(Obviously) no chick peas, no Parmesan. Just straight veggies Snack - Water, water rice cake with PB2, Anytime Bar or Apple, Anytime Bar Dinner - Whole Foods, Salmon, Veggie, Couscous or brown rice - something not too high in calories (no salda - as I am overdoing the quantity and my body rebels) Try not to do meal out if I am by myself and not needed for work event Dessert - Smores Bar

      Congrats!!! We are in this together lol

  20. So cute! You look fab!!!! I just found out that a large groc store chain here is opening a Orange Therapy fitness center here!! SO EXCITED!!
  21. Cute outfit! Before you know it, you’ll be back home!! Glad you found an Orange Theory in Atlanta!!
  22. Wow! You look great! Stay safe in Atlanta!
  23. Hey Guys - well just a quick post - as requested - new outfits... I don't have picture of the size 4 jeans and shirt where my stomach shows (a teensy bit). It feels great to be able to maintain here in Atlanta (Avoiding hopefully the worst of Irma). Yesterday visited JC and met Ashley a terrific consultant in ATL - up .5 pounds - but nothing to worry about (I think I am down today according to the OTF scale 139). So not too worried - but watchful. Making better decisions and maybe skipping breakfast out when I know I have plans tonight for dinner. Anyhoo- my family (Mom, Sister and her hubby) have all reported in safe and sounds as the winds kick up in Boca. So meanwhile just got back form OrangeTheory I am sooo glad when it is finished - and so glad I did it. The picture below is with the trainer.... and my new workout pants.. and shirt courtesy of Marshalls. Stripes... that just was not what I used to wear at 207+. So grateful to JC for the 70 pounds or so loss and to all of you. It's so worth it... Keep going no matter what. Picture is with the ORT coach Lauren. Great Class! Sue

  25. Tricia....just read your post, which brought tears to my eyes!! I love your determination and strength! I am amazed (and a bit envious!) at your initial wt loss and eager to follow you on here. You are an inspiration, for sure. I am on my 7th wk, just under 10 pounds down so far. I am also very determined and am pleased to have found this forum for extra support. Fortunately, I have a very supportive family and my sister and a close friend are long time Jenny clients so they understand! I wish you the best on this journey. Don't ever let anyone make you think your goals are unattainable because once we put our minds to something and believe in ourselves, there is no stopping us! Keep up the great work! 💟
  26. Love this!! Way to go!! Loved reading your words and love that you won that prize and it ignited something in you to change your life. Keep up the great work!!!

    I stalled out too. Labor Day weekend was quite a challenge. I need to get back on track. Would love to join the Christmas Challenge!

     

  27. Thank you and I appreciate that you both took the time to read my post. Starting this journey has been so exciting for me and I have a support team around me, but while my husband is at work out of town, I do not have anyone that really understands what I am going through. I look forward to writing more about this experience. To me, I have always saw Jenny Craig commercials, but never really thought it was something that would really work. Now, that I am doing it I would like to share with others like me and show them that it works. Again, thank you for your words of encouragement!
