High-fructose corn syrup in JC foods: Bad idea?

I have been concerned about all the preservatives and additives in JC prepared foods, but love the convenience and taste of many of their products. However, I was REALLY surprised to find high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and corn syrup listed as ingredients in some of their products, such as the Mixed Berry Bar. I don't know if you're familiar with how high fructose corn syrup is manufactured, but it's not pretty or natural. It involves genetically modified enzymes." involving vats of murky fe

Donny Osmond and my life

This week I turned 52 Now I have memories from six different decades. Of course most of those memories centre around Donny Osmond; seriously, give me a year, and I can tell you what Donny was doing. Okay maybe give me a decade. 60s: Singing with his bros and on Andy Williams 70s: “Donny & Marie,” Heart throb and super cute 80s: Re-emergence as total hottie 90s: Joseph and Disney (Mulan) 00s: Johnny Bravo and Dancing with the Stars 10s: Vegas Got married? Donny’s career was quiet.

It's my birthday!

Today I'm posting poems that were written for my birthday back to the drawing board tomorrow! Jane, Jane, Jane! Isn’t it a pain, that your name rhymes with pain? But what kind of pain are we talking about here? Multiple translations make things all weird.   In French, pain is delicious. Also pretty tasty, and occasionally nutritious! Aha! In Dutch you’d still be a pijn. Sooo, nothing lost there, and nothing else to gain. In Danish you’d be smerter But no, that’s not at all right! (Although

Losing it with humour and a little help

I was real happy and young and carefree and I lived in a world where my clothes were size three and I thought, "Overweight cannot happen to me!" but then Somehow this year (and it came as a shock) Advice to lose weight came down straight from the Doc Well, I never had ever been too big before Now I hated the mirror and hated the store When I thought to myself "I can't take anymore! my blood pressure's up and my stamina's down And my tops are the size of my grandma's night gown!" So I joined

Too many carbs, not enough protein on JC

I absolutely LOVE some of the Jenny Craig foods. But I am concerned that they have too many carbs and not enough protein (and fairly high sugars.) Pasta, potatoes and bread abound in their prepackaged meals. Research shows that eating a higher proportion of protein results in more weight loss and less loss of muscle mass. For example: In a study published in Nutrition Metabolism , dieters who increased their protein intake to 30 percent of their diet ate nearly 450 fewer calories a day

Ups and Downs during first three weeks on program

Hey - hope everyone reading this had been having some healthy successes during these several weeks. I've been watching the Valentine's Challenge, and just joined the Easter Challenge. Adding that accountability will be very motivating for me. I've had 3 JC visits to the Center so far, and think I need to change something.... First visit to Center - drove my Mom in as well, who was reluctant to join the program. The center manager met with us - says she sees clients sometimes and would be h

4th times a charm?

I have lost significant weight on Jenny 3 times in my 29 years of life. When I was 15 I lost 50 pounds. When I was 21 I lost 40 lbs when I was 26 I lost 25 lbs. But here I am again 29 and the back in the 180's. I am recently married and somehow with noticing the weight has just crept back on, and I am pissed. I am pissed that once again all of the hard work and sacrifice of prior jenny experiences have been totally wasted. Why cannot I not seem to grasp and cling to the lessons on food and exer

Better wear my favorite "Fat Clothes" now...soon they won't be fitting anymore (hopefully)

Hi and welcome to my blog! I've decided to stop lurking silently on the Jenny Craig message boards and begin to share my weight loss story and healthy ideas too. It's my third time using the Jenny program to guide me back to healthy eating habits - but this time instead of doing a thirty day free trial, and then struggling to follow the plan on my own, I've paid the fees and joined for a year. Plus my sister and mother are both doing it this time around as well. And hey, three's supposed

Frustrated by Lack of Family Support

I was so excited to try JC ... but am disappointed that my family's reaction does not feel very supportive. They have made it clear that they don't think my current weight is healthy and that I don't look very good, and that I should do something about it....but that seems to be where it ends. When I went to visit my mother, I had 4 days of food shipped to her condo (and warned her it was coming). Her response was "What is all this crap?" "You better eat it all before you leave!" She also com

Good Vibes Needed

Hi all, I don't think the blogs are that popular on here but what the heck, I'll continue to write when I feel like I have something to document - I think it's great to look back at KEY points in your journey. This post is related to weight loss in a sense but mostly career focused. Here it goes... Early this week I was contacted regarding a possible opportunity at work. I was flattered - someone reaching out to you (in my mind) means a whole lot! That's YOUR personal brand being witnessed a

New to JC - WOW I feel so full!

I have been struggling to maintain a healthy weight for almost 45 years. I have never tried a program like JC before. I was AMAZED at how full I feel - usually I feel like I am starving! This is a totally new experience. I am worried about how many people end up coming BACK - meaning they were unable to maintain their JC successes. I need something that will work for me over the long haul. I am worried about eating so many prepared foods with fake ingredients, lots of sugar and carbs.

Back to the Middle

Starting over is hard to do. I have been harboring resentment for having worked so hard in the past just to gain the weight back. Bitterness and regret don't taste to great though. So I am working through the anger, and going back to what worked. I could point fingers and place blame for all the ways things have gone wrong in my life to bring me to this moment. But I have decided to take a breathe, turn away from the past and continue going forward. Somehow I can't approach this attempt wi

Life Sucks

I feel really sad. It is going to take forever for me to lose weight. I feel so defeated already. Somehow, I feel ashamed that I have to resort to this. I know it is ridiculous. My son has ASD, (autistic spectrum disorder). I feel like I am losing my mind with him. ,

Feeling Lonely And Scared

I just started back on JC. I lost forty pounds on JC several years ago. I have gained and lost like crazy over the years. After hitting 200 pounds and I knew I had to do something. First weigh in, I lost five pounds. I am finding that I don't need as many calories as I thought I did.   Does anyone out there feel scared of what will happen when they lose weight?
