About this blog

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Yeah, I know it is corny but I can't sweat the small stuff.

 

This is how I decided to do my Jenny Craig:

  1. I will eat Dinner for Lunch and Lunch for Dinner. It is my preference to eat the heavier meal during the day.
  2. I will not be consuming the Limited Foods. Not necessary.
  3. I will not be doing the Jenny Craig Dressing. I will be using my own dressing and just use a healthy fat. I dilute my dressing because it is too thick.
  4. I will not be doing the Greek Yogurt. This is so gross. I will be doing the regular non-fat yogurt.

 

These are the times I have scheduled to consume my meals:

  • Breakfast: 0700 hours
  • Snack: 0900 hours
  • Dinner: 1200 hours
  • Snack: 1500 hours
  • Lunch: 1700 hours
  • Snack: 1900 hours

 

I did pretty well on day one. I was supposed to start Sunday, 01 April, but ended up starting today, 03 April. No biggie. Better late than never. I am going to call the center tomorrow to reschedule my check-in days to Tuesday evenings. I purchased a lunch bag a few months ago and now it is coming in handy. My meals fit perfectly in it and it doesn't leak if something were to spill inside.

 

I ate what was exactly on the menu for breakfast. I did the same for the first snack that I consumed on my way to an unplanned interview. Unfortunately, I didn't get back to my office until approximately 1230 hours. According to my schedule, I should be eating my dinner at noon. Since I was in such a rush, I didn't eat the vegetables simply because I forgot the container to steam them in. By the time to eat lunch I was famished, or at least I thought I was. I inhaled the pizza and enjoyed the salad. That S'mores Bar was pretty good or either I was really hungry.

 

Tomorrow I am going to try to do better in getting 8 glasses of water down.

 

I am getting the urge to snack, so off to bed, I go. I am actually more tired than I am hungry so I should fall asleep rather quickly and that should kill the urge to snack.

 

God bless!

WEEK TEN IS A WIN! WHOOHOO!

I have lost a total of 26.1 pounds in ten  weeks:   Week 01: -10.8 Week 02: -03.8 Week 03: -01.2 Week 04: -01.9 Week 05: -01.0 Week 06: -01.7 Week 07: -01.7 Week 08: +01.8 Week 09: -04.5 Week 10: -01.3   This was a pretty good week. Nothing out of the ordinary except the fact that I ate off menu twice this week, but I still achieved a loss. I decided from the very beginning that I would not deprive myself. So when we have these lit

WEEK NINE IS BEHIND ME...

Almost forgot to post my success for this past week.   I have lost a total of 24.8 pounds in nine  weeks:   Week 01: -10.8 Week 02: -03.8 Week 03: -01.2 Week 04: -01.9 Week 05: -01.0 Week 06: -01.7 Week 07: -01.7 Week 08: +01.8 Week 09: -04.5   This was a pretty good week. Nothing out of the ordinary. Still, a bit ticked off that I cannot get a detailed receipt when I pay for my food. This is not a way to run a business. I hav

MY WORST WEEK NEVER TO BE REPEATED...

I made it to week nine, but not without a glitch that cost me a 1.8-pound setback but not a defeat.   I have lost a total of 20.3 pounds in eight weeks: Week 01: -10.8 Week 02: -03.8 Week 03: -01.2 Week 04: -01.9 Week 05: -01.0 Week 06: -01.7 Week 07: -01.7 Week 08: +01.8   Saturday I had to work from 0600 hours-1800 hours. I packed up my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks and off to work I went. Unfortunately, when I arrived at work

SUCCESSFUL END TO WEEK SEVEN

I made it to week eight. I am so very proud of myself. Praise God!   I have lost a total of 22.1 pounds in seven weeks: Week 01: 10.8 Week 02: 03.8 Week 03: 01.2 Week 04: 01.9 Week 05: 01.0 Week 06: 01.7 Week 07: 01.7   I learn so much from this site. I learned about the Personalized Menu, so that is what I used this week. As I was reading off my items to bag, I was so excited to see almost all of my favorites. This is going to be a great we

GREAT NUMBERS!

This past Thursday I had an appointment with my endocrinologist (I'm a diabetic) and I thought he was going to throw confetti in the air. He was so impressed with my numbers and the reduction in my weight. My A1C is down from 9 to 6.4, my cholesterol is great, my blood pressure is good. EVERYTHING was where it needed to be, with one exception; I need more iron. I am going to try to remember to take the iron pills I purchased the last time he presented me with this information.   Praise

MADE IT TO WEEK SEVEN AND -20 POUNDS! YIPPEE!

I made it to week seven. I am so very proud of myself. Praise God!   I have lost a total of 20.4 pounds in six weeks: Week 01: 10.8 Week 02: 03.8 Week 03: 01.2 Week 04: 01.9 Week 05: 01.0 Week 06: 01.7   What a great week. I got to have my favorite (Fish & Chips), which I wish I could have each week, but I was told that I could not. Not sure I understand the rationale behind this, but oh well. It seems to me that

I Need Healthy Snacks

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

Made It To Week Six! WTG Me!

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

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

My Motivation to Succeed

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

CONSULTANT BLUES

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

MADE IT TO WEEK FOUR

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
