Ladies and gentlemen ... I am back at Jenny after a decent amount of time on my own. Let me just say, I am not back because I failed at keeping weight off. I am back because I have maintained a significant weight loss and I am ready for more to come off.
I started Jenny Craig in May of 2010 because I was in a bad place. Overweight and depressed-I knew I had to do something to change my ways. By September of 2011, I had lost over 30 pounds. I was thrilled.
People complimented me
This is the start of Week 18 and i am down 45 lbs. I was surprised that I had lost a pound this week given that I had fallen off the wagon so many times, I am bruised. But I got back on yesterday again, did my exercise, ate from the JC menu and drank a lot of water. I have been sick, had an episode of menopause, been to two unexpected holiday parties, and went to lunch with some friends that I hadn't seen in awhile in the past week.
The lunch - I felt guilty when I should not have felt that
I have lost 34 pounds; that puts me under 200 pounds. If I don't want to obsess about the 70 pounds left to lose, 5 pound losses are my focus. Before I know it, I will lose over 100 pounds. I will, then, be able to kick up my heels and take a trip to a mega mall for the new wardrobe.
After looking at Mariah Careys new bod - I knew that I too, should call Jenny. However, if you know me on any personal level, then you know that I am not a phone girl, so I drove right on over and joined without procrastination.
Is it pricey? Not as pricey as your pride, (and hide) in a larger clothing size. I went with the METABOLIC MAX program that included the Body Media Armband. The arm band is like your virtual weight loss supervisor. It jots down every step you take (ie...physical act
On April 11, 2011, I joined Jenny Craig as an overweight senior citizen. Overweight people are often perceived as not being as smart as svelte people. Joining a reputable weight loss program is a smart move.
Since joining, I lost 33 pounds. On my own, I lost only ten pounds in a year, therefore, the 33 pounds is better then it may appear. I also have some aches, pains, and balance problems making exercise a challenge but it is doable. Some aches and pains will dissipate with the weight l
12/3/11 - Today i restarted Jenny Craig since my last attempt in 2008, since i have gain 10lbs since. I am approaching my 38th birthday and have decided that i must begin a new stage of life. I need to loss 40-50lbs to begin my family, to have a safer healthier pregnancy.
My boyfriend of 6yrs and i are talking family and better health. Of course he is extremely fit and active and i not so much. He is very supportive and encouraging which i believe will make this go around more successful
You think you can scare me with Oreo Cookie Cake??? You feel bad for me, while you eat that cheeseburger and fries and I eat my Jenny Meal...Let me tell you something, I have had a cheeseburger and fries, and while they are good, they are not worth me feeling bad about myself, they do not bring long term happiness in my life, as a matter of fact they bring the exact opposite, I always feel bad about myself for eating you and I always eat too much, so for now I will say goodbye, one day we will
Almost four months ago now, I married my best friend!
I was so proud of how many times the dress was altered (smaller!) and ecstatic about how the pictures turned out! (a corset can do wonders, my friend!)
Then came the all-inclusive honeymoon! We had a fabulous time, but from day one, I knew the fabulous food and copious amounts of St Lucian rum were not going to be a friend of the scale's when I got home. But I felt fabulous, even wore a bikini with confidence for the first time in a wh
Last Saturday I went to my Jenny Craig Center for my weekly weigh in and my routine doctor checkup. I checked in with Jenny Craig Consultant and I am 5 lbs until my goal weight. yay! My goal weight is 130lbs. Last weigh in was 134.8lbs.
My doctors scale says 136lbs. Pretty close. I am so proud of my progress. so happy. I am glad I am improving myself. I tried on some of my jeans and realize that its fits more loser and better. I am able to zip my jeans and close my belt. yay!!!! My BMI is on th
I am so excited! I am traveling this week. For the first time in a long time, I did not have to use a seatbelt extender on the airplane! I still have a lot of weight to lose, but this is just the encouragement I need to stay "on program." I got my daily walk in this morning, and I plan to try to find a scale to help me keep track! It's going to be a good week. Food is not the only important thing at Thanksgiving. There will probably be food again sometime. I don't have to eat some of ev
So, after not being on the planned menu for about a week it looks like I didn't do too much damage. I ended up just going up 0.2 lbs, so in a way you could say I maintained my weight.
Plus, I know I'm losing inches since last Friday I ended up putting on a dress that used to fight me rather snugly, and it fits fine now. So I'm happy so far with progress I've made, but now I've really got to kick things into high gear so I can start losing some serious pounds.
This week I'm hoping to really
I am finishing my 5th week being back at Jenny and I am happy to report that I have lost sixteen pounds and 5.5 inches. Getting back at was the hard part but now that my mind is made up again I feel that I will be successful. I know I can do it as I have lost 60lbs before on the program.
I hoping to feel better and avoid knee replacement if I can get rid of all this excess weight.
I know there will be unexpected events but I am going to do my best to deal with them as they come and know that
Well it seems like I was able to start off my Jenny Craig (JC) program on a good note, but sometime after week two I have hit some bumps in the road.
I followed the diet as well as I could, and I had a few indulgences since I know one can't change the way they eat overnight. Yet I had good results after week 1 and lost 5 pounds. Even when you consider that it is mostly water weight that is still good, and a lot better than I expected to do.
So of course I was motivated to go through week 2 a
So I am back on the Jenny Train after a three year absence during which time I happily found all the little pound friends I had lost my last journey down JC Lane. I am once again ready to try and lose them for good this time. Darn friends anyway keep coming back . I actually did not mind the journey last time, however my temper got stirred up by my money hungry rude JC consultant that told me if I was not going to buy the full amount of food each week she was not going to do a consult with me e
Well, today I took the first step and decided to join Jenny Craig. So what motivated me? I just turned 29 and I am going through some transition. I am back at school and just decided enough is enough. I want to lose weight! I have been heavy all my life and I need to take control.
So, as I hope everyone else's journey is smooth, though I know there will be rough patches, I hope mine is as well.
Good Luck everyone!
I'm feeling such guilt right now. I just finished dinner at a wonderful restaurant where I shared appetizers, main course, and dessert. I also had two glasses of wine. Why, oh why?? My body is already repaying me for my gluttony. I feel sick and I deserve it! Lesson learned, wine equals poor decisions!
I'm feeling old today! My oldest child, Jessica, turns 21 today. It's hard to believe how time flies by. Enjoy life because it passes us by so quickly. It's time to get healthy so life is more enjoyable when we are older. Nobody wants to be sick when they are trying to have fun with their grandbabies!
Yesterday was 4 weeks on Plexus Slim Accelerator and I'm down 10.4 pounds, 10.75 inches, and 3% body fat. I'm more than happy with that!
Hubby and I went on a hike yesterday and we covered 8.71 miles, including some rough terrain. We really enjoyed it and can't wait to do it again! I can see this becoming a regular habit.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
I woke up sick yesterday and had to take a day off work. I'm feeling better today, though, AND it's Friday AND I'm off work on Monday! Yay!
Even though I was sick yesterday, I finally dragged myself out of bed in the early evening and took a walk with my husband. Then later in the evening my mom and I took a walk. So depsite being sick, I managed to get about 5 miles in. I was very pleased with myself because I could have easily stayed in bed.
It's Friday, people! Let's get ready for t
Sweat was pouring off me tonight as I did 30 minutes on the incline trainer, a Jillian Michaels incline program, and then 45 minutes on the treadmill. After that I lifted some weights, did some ab crunches, and then some stretching. I feel great; like I'm getting my old self back. I can't wait to get back into the full swing of running again. I'm so disappointed in myself for stopping in the first place!
My eating was on track today as well. I had a thin bagel for breakfast and half of a m
