I need great ideas for healthy snacks.
Not until I started Jenny Craig did I realize that while I am studying, I have this tremendous urge to snack. Since I am usually busy working during the day, it really doesn't affect me until I am home in the evening and doing my homework. Sometimes I am so focused on my homework that I forget to eat my evening snack. However, I always take the last week of the semester off to focus on my research paper and a final exam. So for today and the fol
I made it to week six. Praise God!
I have lost a total of 18.7 pounds in five weeks:
Week 01: 10.8
Week 02: 03.8
Week 03: 01.2
Week 04: 01.9
Week 05: 01.0
I am still trying to lose a much weight by the time I am required to take my physical for a new position. First I have the interview next week and I am sure my clothes are going to look a lot better on me with the reduction of almost 19 pounds. But the time my interview rolls around I will have
I made it to week five. WhooHoo!
I have lost a total of 17.7 pounds in four weeks:
Week 01: 10.8
Week 02: 03.8
Week 03: 01.2
Week 04: 01.9
I am going through an interview process and at some point, I will have to take a physical. I don't know if the physical will be a week away or a month away, but I have to stay focused to lose the maximum weight I can each week to have the best weigh-in physically possible.
Praise God for blessing me wit
I'm not sure what made me type in "Jenny Craig" on my phone, one night, a few weeks ago.It seems that I have been yo-yo dieting for the last six years. Up 20 lbs, down 25, up 30 again.
Like many of you, I've given many diets and workout programs a go. Paleo, Whole30, keto, vegan, myfitnesspal, crossfit etc. I seem to be really good at losing 20 pounds, but its past that mark where I usually fall off the wagon. When I started Jenny two weeks ago, I weighed 220lbs. The highest I've ev
I started on this journey not only to become healthy but to better my life experiences. I am scheduled to take three trips abroad and I want the ease of movement I will have when I lose fifty pounds prior to my departure. My first trip isn't until the end of January 2019. I am going on a mission trip to South Africa to spread God's word to the children, some orphans and some with AIDS. I am so looking forward to this trip. At the top of one of my menus on the Motivation line, I put, "I am on a m
Hey yeah guys,
It's been forever since I posted this is my new blog, hopefully I keep at it with this. I'm going back to Jenny tomorrow and starting on Sunday. I've done this program so many times that hopefully this is the last time that I'm on it. I'm gonna work my butt off to be able to keep off this weight because, I'm so tired of the heartburn and being tired all the time. Can't wait to start this journey again and hopefully for the last time. Praying this works, so they say 3 t
At my center, there is only one consultant that does everything. She is NEVER on time, which is a HUGE problem for me because I go there from work and I need to get home so that I can get my homework done. Today, and every week, my appointment is at 1720 hours (5:20 PM). My consultant didn't see me until approximately 1745 hours (5:45 PM).
Last week at my appointment my consultant started a conversation about which fast food restaurant had the best French fries and then which had th
I have lost a total of 15.8 pounds in three weeks:
Week 01: 10.8
Week 02: 03.8
Week 03: 01.2
This is a marathon for me, not a sprint. I signed up for the long haul.
I did forget my food on Saturday when I went to Family Day with my son at his work. I had a choice of a hot dog or hamburger. The hot dog was huge. So much so I ate nothing else for the rest of the day.
I need to increase my water intake and my activity. Right now I am taking 20-minute walks, which is go
as I don’t eat beef but I am tempting to eat this dish. It looks delicious but can you bring a version in chicken.
Some more variety such as baked chicken wings with plain rice. Chicken rolls baked.
Chicken hot dogs with whole wheat bun.
Thanks for bringing in some more variety in breakfast such as coffee cake and blueberry oat bar. However I strongly urge you to bring back the breakfast mixed berry bar. I extremely loved it or bring in the form of a nutrition bar.
I lost another 2.6#!
I keep thinking I'm tricking the scale - except I wear the same clothes, I eat breakfast and lunch then stop eating/drinking at noon (for my 3pm weigh in), and while weight fluctuates - it doesn't fluctuate by more than 11 pounds!
Easter candy got me one day last week and then AGAIN today at the office. But I'm working from home tomorrow and getting re-focused and re-committed! I love to re-focus and re-commit. I've done it my whole
Quick-ish of recap: I blogged before about how my son got the flu and pnemonia and strep all at once! Well the next day, I found out my Grandfather died. He got the flu the same day as my little one, and passed away at home, in his sleep. We're grateful that it was gentle for him, but even when everything goes the best way one can expect (he was 90, he got to see his great-grandchildren graduate from high school, he didn't want to spend weeks dying in the hospital as he h
?Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! ?
So I wanted to share my success from this week! So after being knocked down to a 1200 calorie diet after my disappointing 0.6 lb loss last week, I am excited to tell you that I lost 4.4 lbs this week!!! I made sure I had an empty bladder before my weigh in (since last time I learned that it can add about 0.6 lbs to your weight) and I worked out twice during the week. I never felt hungry and I had a ton of energy.
Lessons learned in my first
I'm on my second week....did great week one lost 7 pounds! In my second week I've remained at the same weight for five days....UGH!
Anyone have suggestions on how to start loosing again? I'm 73 years old, am eating just like my weekly menu tells me to eat. Not cheating
on food doing just what I'm suppost to.....! Would love to hear from anyone who maybe has had the same issue.
Today is day 7 on Rapid Results for me. I made it through week one! So much to learn. I'm so thankful everybody on this site is so nice and helpful! My consultant is so knowledgable as well.
This week I learned that you must not mix and match meals on each day, but you can change the order of days. And also tricks to keep the 12 hour replenish time rule.
A little bit about me, I'm 55 years old, happily married, and step mother to 4 children total, two with my hubby. Ages 31-26-18 and n
Today was my first day back on plan after 5 years. I was able to maintain my weight loss over the past years but had a very bad year that has spun me out of control and unable to get my bearings on my own. I'm someone who has always struggled with depression and anxiety, but this past year was marked by a health crisis for my husband and the loss of my father. I have allowed myself some leeway because of the nature of these struggles, but I am very very hard on myself. In the past few months
I have a routine.
It only took like 10 days, and I have an eating routine. It's awesome.
My eating had become so disordered. I wanted to not keep soda in the house, but then every morning I would wake up scheming to sneak off to McDonald's without being obvious to my family (sometimes impatiently waiting for them to leave the house, one time WALKING b/c I didn't have access to a car!), or I would settle on just going, defensively, or I would suffer until lunch, not thin
Good Saturday everyone. Well, I had my weigh in yesterday and only lost 0.6 lbs. I'm sure last Saturday had something to do with it, but I feel it shouldn't be THAT low (please keep in mind I'm on RR). I was on the 1500 cal plan, so my consultant lowered me to 1200 in hopes that I will start to lose. I'm so angry about this! I pay >$160/week for JC and I'm getting absolutely no where. It is so disheartening, and no matter how hard I try, it is putting me into a depression. I'm going to really
Yesterday I posted about my goal to follow the plan precisely. Not aiming for perfection, but also not using "I'd better not be a perfectionist!" as an excuse to eat off plan. One week of eating precisely on plan is possible.
Then I ate my dinner at like 4pm b/c I was hungry! I figured I could has a salad with my family at a normal dinner time.
But that meal didn't turn out how I planned. We took my 4 year old to the ER where he tested positive for the flu AND strep AND
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces." That's what Bridget Jones says - and oh, I LOVE Bridget Jones. I was less enthused about the sequels and I haven't read the book, but I have seen that movie a million times.
But I think she's wrong.
I think success in one area tends to beget success in another area. And flailing about in one area tends to cause flailing about all over the place! I
Happy Tuesday everyone! It's been a while since I posted, but the only reason is because I kept forgetting to get on to post. Friday I went to my weigh in at JC and only lost 1.6 lbs. This would be great if I wasn't on the RR program. The consultant said I should have lost more, so we discussed my week to see where I fell short. We really could not settle on it. I keep track of my food on MyFitnessPal, so I showed her that I was sticking to the plan religiously. We settled on it just being due t
