From birth we have a completely clean slate. We cry only when we are wet or hungry. We deal with our emotions. We cry for emotional support when we need it. How did I get so lost from being a perfectly adjusted middle class child to an overstressed emotional eater that buries her problems with food. If I am happy I eat. When I want to celebrate I eat. When I am lonely or frustrated I eat. What ever happened to a good cry or releasing all these pent up emotions. Why have I centered my entire life
After a few days of seeing how dedicated I have been to starting my new lifestlye with the program my husband ordered Nutrisystem this morning! Although it is not Jenny, I am very proud that he is making an effort to change his eating habits along with me. I think this will be an integral part of my own success and will help us grow together as a couple. I am excited to celebrate the simple wins with him. We can do this...
Let's be real for a moment. We all have tried, and we all have failed at some point in our lives. Weight is something I have struggled with my entire life and now 30 am still fighting the battle. I gave up for many years, accepting in my head that I will just always be the fat girl. This week it changed. I don't want to see the number 300 ever again. I saw it when I was pregnant, but in my head I told myself "You're pregnant...it will go away." But I started realizing even then that I was
Blogging from work. This is a first for me. Then again, I'm just a student with an internship, so I'm only in the office once a week.
But here I am, sitting at my desk reading a manuscript. That's when the hunger set in. I'm hungry fairly often still, but I've been assured that that will pass. Sometimes I am very full, sometimes I feel the hunger, but even when I'm hungry it's not so bad. Not as bad as those times I've eaten a whole medium pizza until I felt sick. Not as bad as the mornings I w
At week 5 - PMS showed up. Dun-dun-dun!!! The bloat was ugly, but I remained positive and worked out throughout the (nearly) week long ordeal that mother nature is. lol! There was fried chicken wings, devils food cupcakes with chocolate icing and 7 Tacos from Taco Bell documented on my BODY MEDIA food log.
Yes. I'm an honest journal'er ---
The scale won't.
True enough every calorie from week 5 showed up at the beginning of my week 6 weigh in. Coupled with the PMS B
It is starting to get rough for me i am starting to crave alot of dine out foods that arent good for me. On the other hand last week I lost weight. I am proud of that. I like alot of the jenny craig dishes. any ways i just want to update thanks for listening
"This is the best diet ever," I said as I looked at the red, digital numbers which read 179. It was the thinnest I'd ever been since I hit puberty at 12. I hadn't been under 200 pounds the entire time I was a teenager. Over the course of senior year of high school, I went from ~225 pounds in October to 185 pounds in May. And I was stuck at 185 all summer. My boyfriend was tired and lethargic most of the summer, but it wasn't until August and the week before my 18th birthday I realized he'd given
Weight on the scale is the way we have to measure for JC to prove we are following the program. The JCCs do have us take measurements (I am At Home client so I do the measurements) but the scale is the main measurement. How else to measure success? I wished I had taken my thigh measurements along with with my biceps to add to the other measurements but what I did take are pretty satisfying. I am taking my smaller pants' "word" for it that my thighs are shrinking. Smaller clothes and improv
I am having my very first weigh-in tommorrow. Ask me if I am nervous? YES. I am because I am following the diet to the letter so far. In all of this following the food plan and moving more ( exercizing) I have been carrying the hope of it making a different. I will be happy with any amount of loss, just don't want to come up with no loss. IFEEL good, which is a plus and a gain in in it's self. How about folks out there? Was your first weigh-in anticipated with some nervousness? I have one positi
So this is my first ever attempt at blogging. I've always had the thought in the back of my mind, but when your mind is cluttered with EVERYTHING else it's difficult to get around to less important things like blogging. I mean that would actually mean that I have some free time to sort through my thoughts. HA!
Well, today is a first step for me towards making "free" time, or "me" time. I have started this blog with the goal of maintaining until I hit my goal weight.
So the one true benefit t
I AM DOING THE FIRST WEIGH IN TOMORROW. BY MYSCALE IT'S A PRETTY GRAND 10 POUNDS!! I KNOW, I KNOW ALOT OF WATER WEIGHT. BUT IS IT REALLY? I'VE EATEN ALMOST EVERYTHING ON THE PAGE INCLUDING EXTRA PICKLES.. LOVE PICKLES . NONETHELESS I AM VERY PROUD OF MYSELF. I HAVE A GOAL OF ABOUT 130 POUNDS NOW 120 IF IT'S CORRECT. THE SOUPITIZERS HAVE PLAYED A BIG ROLE IN HOLDING ME OVER AT TIMES TOO. I LOVE THAT! BUT I CAN ALREADY SEE THAT WORKING OUT MY FOOD EATING SCHEDULE AND WORK SCHEDULE IS GOING TO BE
I guess I'll start off by saying I've tried just about every diet out there, including ordering phentermine off some shady website (lucky I didn't kill myself doing that). Some have worked, some haven't, some I even lost a good bit of weight on. Mostly I kept losing the same 10-20 lbs. Problem was though, in between those 10-20 lb losses, I was gaining twice that much. A few years ago, I signed up for Jenny Direct, and got off to a good enough start, but hit a big financial stumbling block th
Hi, I am at 182 lbs, which is the lightest I have ever been as an adult. I was at this weight but back in high school, a period of time I do not care to repeat. Bullying, hateful comments by my classmates and my sister was one of them. Nope, not going back there. I took some pictures, and I am not pretty or attractive but I think my suit is fitting me well in the photo. Included a photo of me holding a size 20 pants (Eddie Bauer) that fit back in August of 2011. The new suit was actually pu
Week 2 went well. Stayed on plan and lost another 1.4 lbs. This week my goal is to continue to focus on my activity level. I want to increase to achieve my goal of 1 hour of intentional exercise 6 days per week. I have split my activities into 30 minute increments. I have been good about hitting the 30 minutes each night--but still struggle to get the first foot out of bed in the morning. I have a busy week at work and will be traveling four days this week. I have my JC meal plan, need to g
So far so good. I've stuck to the plan, and even joined a gym near home. (I have a membership through work at the one in the North.) Day 2 left me with a migraine. I managed to follow the plan despite a 4 hour nap in the middle of the day. In a way it feels like I'm detoxing. I have been very gassy (less when I use Beano and/or Lactaid) and sometimes nauseous. And well, the body waste is very similar to when I've done cleanses in the past. Waiting for something more solid. My biggest not
I started Jenny at the end of January 2011 with my husband, J. I lost 13lbs and found myself at 177 just before Thanksgiving. Well, here I am, two months later and 7lbs heavier. It's definitely not the program's fault. It's my inability to stop putting large quantities of crap in my mouth. Last week I ate three large bags of peanut M&Ms over the course of 36 hours. No, not the size you buy at the cashier counter at a convenience store. I'm talking the gianormous ones that you buy at C
Hey, It's such a regular winter day in Massachusetts. I was hemming and hawing about the start of my program. Did my breakfast meal o.k. but using my dislike for colder days as a reason not to get moving on this, my first day.
Any ofYOU out there like that? Well, my old way was to put off the move to action. TODAY I said FOOOWEEE. I will go for at leat 10 minutes, if I am too cold I'll go in. It wasn't what happpened.
I started dressed right;hat, gloves and warm coat. I walked for a few minut
Who in their right mind would allow themselves to be right back at the beginning? Yet that is where I am. I am a guy who has fought the weight fight most of my life. In 2010 I was at my goal and kept it off for one year. So I treated myself to a major tummy tuck and leg lift. When I was done healing it was amazing. My abs were tight and I could wear whatever I wanted. Lord did I look stupid in tight skinny jeans. (note to self, just because you can wear them...) So how in the would did I wake up
Well hello there everyone! Today is day 5 on JC for me! It is going wonderful other than the horrible gas I am experiencing. I am not eating the anytime bars. I think it's from the pasta dishes. In any case I am assuming this too shall pass (pun intended) In any case I am really excited for support. I have about 25 pounds to lose. I did JC back in 1995 when I was nursing my daughter and I had much success with it. I am looking forward to getting back on track and getting my eating/portion size u
I started Jenny about 3 years ago and was successful for the time I was on the program. I lost 25 lbs in a month and a half! But I lost my job and didnt have the money so i had to quit.........
But no worries I'M BACK!
I started the program last week at 240lbs. In my first week I have already lost 6.4 lbs! I feel great. I am looking forward to more weightloss and coming closer to my ultimate goal of 150lbs. ONLY 84 lbs to go
Wish me luck yall!
I hope everyone has a healthy, happy and succe
Now I don't know if it was the excitement to start the program again, or the nerves for my date tonight or some other randomness. But I slept HORRIBLY last night. Went to bed around 1:00AM as I was not tired. Then woke up at 2:30AM for roughly 30 minutes and at 4:00AM I was awake for an hour about ready to shoot myself as I was so exhausted but could not sleep. Ugh. I finally dozed off again and woke up at 8:30AM but had troubles dragging my but anywhere so I only ate my breakfast at 10:00A
I initially started Jenny Craig back in April of 2006. I had lost 40 pounds and then I blew out my knee. Due to surgery waitlists I was forced to move back home - Quebec. There were no centres within a reasonable distance. I read about the options of mailing but wasn't interested in this. The other day I noticed a centre nearby. Apparently it opened in May. So I found my program contract and booked an appointment today. My contract was honoured as it was a lifetime membership - today the
