    The RR is stricter but if you read their fine print, even their test group didn’t lose 4lbs a week. Average weight loss was 2.9lbs a week. So even though it’s a stricter program expecting to lose 4 lbs a week is not realistic based on their own trials.

    This is a great post. Remember the JC slogan about losing "16 pounds in 4 weeks" is the Rapid Results program which is a lot stricter than their classic program. It is (sometimes) hard reading about others success and/or losses. We tend to compare ourselves to others. It's human nature. I'm certainly guilty. Whether it's in public or even on TV, I'm constantly comparing myself to others wondering why I can't get rid of some of my thigh fat or my butt!! I love to eat, I mean..... I LOVE TO EAT! so it's a real struggle.

    Support from our Spouses, significant others, friends, relatives etc is so very important!!! My husband is very supportive and it means the world to me. We often split entrees in restaurants as well, especially if they have free appetizers...ie: chips and salsa (I love Mexican food!!) Most restaurant portions are HUGE and plenty for two especially if you get a salad as well. At our favorite Mexican place, we get chicken fajitas for 1 with an extra tortilla and we split it. We each make 2 fajitas and have plenty of food. I don't eat the rice so DH gets that, and I don't use the cheese and very little of the sour cream. Works out perfectly for us ❤️ 25 years!! How AMAZING!! Congratulations! I don't know when this pic was taken but still!! Sounds like you did awesome. Only one problem....NOW I WANT TO GO BACK TO VEGAS!!! HAHA

    Say this to me now precious one, “I can do this!” I know the fear. I started Jenny Craig 1.5 years ago at the age of 50 and have lost 38lbs so far. I find it very slow going and maybe that’s from doing this later in life with a slow metabolism but regardless, it is working! No matter how slow it goes, just don’t give up. You are worth it! Here’s what I tell myself about the pains of slow weight loss at my age - the longer it takes to lose the weight, I figure my body will maybe be tricked into not thinking it needs to slow my metabolism further to prevent what it thinks is impending starvation. Also that slow loss will maybe allow my skin time to bounce back and not be too saggy, because face it, my skin is not what or used to be! To further inspire you, my mom started JC in October 2016 and weighing 240lbs. She has lost 100lbs and is at goal. She’s is 74 years old.

    Truth!!! I love your comment and thanks so much for your encouragement. I totally get what you’re trying to say and definitely agree! Yes, I think that was the Venetian. We went for our 25th anniversary in August and we were on our way to the Italian restaurant. I took Jenny food for breakfasts, lunch and snacks. I ate out one meal a day and my hubby was so supportive. He went along with splitting entrees so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat too much. I did some drinking (how could I not?) but finished the 4 day trip and the week only gaining a pound and then lost it the next week - learning to adapt to life!

    First of all, what a great picture! Is that the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas? You look awesome! I do understand your frustration. I think most of us have been there. Oh and that stupid BMI calculator! OMG! I am so with you on that stupid thing! I HATE THE BMI CALCULATOR!!! I think we should all try to feel good in our own skin. We should try to be as healthy as we can and keep our body moving. Don't get me wrong when I say "as healthy as we can". I'm not saying to eat leaves and twigs! I believe everything in moderation. I could never be a vegan! (not knocking those who are) Isn't it sad that we let society, magazines, movies and friends dictate how we think we should look and feel? I am totally guilty. I, like you, feel like I have "tree trunks" for legs. I remember telling my JCC that I felt like I had the biggest thighs in America. She told me to google that. I was like huh? She said google "biggest thighs in America, I promise you that you will feel differently". Yes, I realize I don't actually have the biggest thighs in America, but that is where I gain my weight. I remember reading something that said, "If you could give someone $1500 and never gain another pound, would you do it?". Where the **** do I send the money? I will triple it! Can someone make this happen, please!!! I have also learned on my journey that just because someone is tiny, does't mean they are happy. We all (unfortunately) have something we can (and do) complain about. Something we aren't happy with. My sister thinks I'm small and calls me a Skinny *****...(kidding of course) but does that make my feelings invalid? Does that mean that what I feel about myself isn't real? NO! I have tried many diets as well (ever heard of HcG??) and jenny was the best for me. It's hard, it takes a lot of work and no it's not fun. I love to eat. I love food. There, I said it. I know this is very jumbled and I apologize. I hope that somewhere in here, you got what I was trying to say. You are important and so is your journey. It is YOUR journey and it will be different from mine or anybody else's. We have to learn to stop comparing ourselves to others. We are different, we look different and talk different. We have different hair color and skin color. We live in different areas, and drive different cars. We are short, tall, big boned, muscular or flabby and we all lose weight differently. But we are all HUMAN and are feelings matter and they are important. ❤️
