Once I got through my 3rd week I started making my own choices, only buying those meals and snacks I love! Still doing this...it is so important to enjoy every bite of food..Makes the journey enjoyable..and doable! My Jenny Craig Counselor was more than ok with it.

I do what Laura does... I did all 4 weeks to start and then customized my weekly menu. My JCC gave me blank templates and I wrote in the meals I wanted for each day. Still had the same great results.

I agree!  You'll love the program more if you get to pick only the foods you love.

I use the "preplanned" menus as a guide.  I always change almost everything on them.  I too, just completed week 4.  I started over again with the week 1 menu today.  I like to use the pre planned ones because it reminds me about foods that I may not get every week.  Your JCC will allow you to change everything on the menu if you want...

I did the 4 preplanned menus as well then I would just use the menu as a guide and write in what I wanted.  Now I just use the food guide and an index card and write what I want on that.  It's your money, get what you want!

I did the same thing.   I didn't get bored until about 6 months in.    One of the things that helped me was changing how i look at food.   I look at it as nourishment , not fun or something to enjoy.     The JC meals were just tools for me to get to a goal.     I had to change that mindset about food.  when you want to be healthy and the right weight, there are limits of what you can have so its gonna be a lot of the same foods every day.     Experiment with vegetable dishes, and different spices.  I learned to make my veggie dishes exciting and fun and the JC meal was just my side dish.    I experimented with changing how the meals were prepared , volumizing , etc.  Like turning the chicken sandwich into a chicken salad with crispy garlic croutons (made from the bun)     There are tons of ideas to keep changing the meals up.  
Learn to be creative with the food choices given , these are the skills you need for the rest of your life to maintain your weight.   The forums here have tons of cool ideas to keep the meals fun and in our calorie range

When you look in the mirror and see no change, and still keep faith, knowing that in time you will get there if you stay focused and on track, that's the difference between those who succeed and those who fail.

I have tried almost everything on the menu over time and now just order the items that I like.  Occasionally I'll order something different just to change it up a bit.  Right now it's the Mesquite Chicken.  I get one a week just as a "different" item.

I pick out everything myself. I don't like a handful of their items so it is easier for me.

My JCC didn't even offered me a planned menu.  She gave me the booklet with pictures and the blank sheet and I choose what I wanted from week 1.  I wouldn't want it any other way.

i find that i like the pre-planned meals - because  i am eating so many different meals - i think if i just bought it on my own my choices would be more limited - like bake potato every day for lunch and i would be more likely to eat off menu.

I have been doing this for nearly three months and do not seem bothered by it. i do mix it up a bit when after a few weeks i have left over meals ( because i dined out) and make those days up on my own and that gives me a bit of variety.

Also i never order something that i do not like - so that beef and potato concoction is not in my plan
Forward ever...Backward never


Easter Challenge Goal = 7.5
week1 = 206.2
week2 = 203.4
week3 = 203.6
week4 = 201.4
