I think I have been trying to do too much at once. I want to lose fat and build muscle. This not impossible, but for me it is not working. I always want to workout. I think what I need to do is concentrate on sticking to the diet. I always think that I am "smarter" than everyone else. I think that I know it all. If I do, why am I overweight?
If it's not one thing, it's another. I'm not trying to place blame for my slips but I truly believe that the weather has an effect on my eating habits. I live in NW Indiana just outside of Chicago. The weather here is crazy. Seriously. It makes absolutely no sense. For instance we had snow and hail on Saturday and Sunday was in the 60's and sunny. We are entering Spring and I am very much looking forward to the weather warming up a bit. Not hot - just 60's and 70's would be nice. As the weather
Night time is my BAD time. If I can say that. Maybe I shouldn't say 'bad'. But nights are where I fall weak. I can do well for 12 hours during the day but come night time I'm done. I struggle so much. Every. Single. Night.
For some reason I just lose all control. It makes me so mad at myself. But by looking at other posts and seeing what other people feel it makes me realize I'm not alone.
As I told another JC sister earlier this week... When you slip, just get up and start again. Mak
So - Today I am wearing a pair of pants that I used to LOVE! They are black with pinstripes and just super cute. They used to fit comfortably. Lately they have been tight. So tight that they cut into the skin around my waist and are incredibly uncomfortable to wear. In fact I dreaded to put them on this morning. But because I am a huge procrastinator (another topic for another time) I didn't have other clean laundry for work. So on the tight pants go. Here's the good part...Although they are sti
Book worthy of recommendation... One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer Why would I recommend this book? IMHO... Robert Maurer has taught me that baby steps have great value. For example, to get in the habit of riding my new exercise bike, I have set the following goals that are so simple they almost seem insignificant: Day 1: with bike in a comfortable, convenient location, sit on bike for 1 minute while thinking about enjoyable bike rides I have taken in the
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
Hello Jenny my old friend I've come to see you once again I love my family and I love my life But in my weight I have encountered strife And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains It is to go to Jenny Now I don't have to go alone I have support right on my phone I read the forums and I check the blog And maybe someday I can start to jog My hunger pains are more than satisfied Don't feel denied With all the food from Jenny Thanks Jenny Craig!
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.

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
A told B and B told C: Jane bought spanx in a size C! Whoa said D to EFG Jane's at least a D or E Chicka chicka boom boom will there be enough room?

Waist, oh waist, where did you go I remember when My belts would go around you and I want that back again Jenny can you help me? This just can't be the end I need to find my waist so I can Use my belts again
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
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
, dieters who increased their protein intake to 30 percent of their diet ate nearly 450 fewer calories a day
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
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
Today is a new day, day 1 on my new Jenny Craig life. I want to be a success story! My goals are insight, I want to feel good about myself again. I have support from my husband, friends, and my new Jenny Craig team. I am so excited to see what happens. Praying for guidance and motivation. I can't wait to hear everyone's story. We've got this, staying focused is key. Keep Smiling
Try the Candle Light Challenge for your next off plan eating moment and you can finally Win over emotional and unconscious eating.
When you decide to eat off plan, light a specific candle taking in the light and warmth, fragrance and beauty. This candle represents you, your power, goals and your choice to represent yourself during this time of eating off plan.
When its time to eat off plan, briefly blow the candle out and then re light it when your off plan eating time is done. Keep it lit til
Back on the program.....Week 1 weigh in brings a loss of 5.6 lbs I forgot how delicious Jenny Craig food is. Lots of water, green tea and keeping to program. Ate out twice this week, but watched what I ordered/ate. All in all a good week!
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
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
