6 The perfect Podcast pairing for Jenny Craig

Synergy  noun   two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects. I've discovered the perfect podcast to support me on my weight loss journey.  Today my weigh in was 139.5 which is a number I've not seen in decades and just 3 lbs from goal.  After 6 months of ups and downs of Week 1-2-3-4 rotations ---  I am so close to actually doing it!  I can hardly believe it! So close to actually reaching a goal and not q

5 Don't you love it when ...

People look at you and you can read their minds as they think ..."huh, has Nancy lost weight?   Does she look thinner?  Hmmm   Yes, she definitely has lost weight."    I've lost 16 lbs so far and today I reached a new low.  I'm just 5 lbs from goal.    I get nervous though about stepping off JC once I get there but as I get closer I am starting to think of Jenny Craig meals differently.  I am starting to view them more as a help to me - not so much being "on plan" or off plan.   The awarene

2 Words of Wisdom

2 Words of Wisdom

I love taking a restorative yoga class at my gym.  One of the favorite parts is the pieces of wisdom that I collect from the teacher - Kristine.  She reminds us to set a daily intention through the choice of a word.  Often my intentions are around clarity or calmness and usually I think of my weight loss goals in context with that intention.    Lately, I have been gathering new ideas from my Jenny Craig consultant - Jessie.  This past week she shared with me that she thinks of her meal as just s

4 Reflections after 1st month with JC

4 Reflections after 1st month with JC

I am grateful that Jenny Craig diet has helped me put an end to mindless snacking and drinking in early evening hours.  It feels really amazing to skip the evening glass(es) of wine which on bad nights might turn into a dinner of wine, baguette and Camembert cheese. Not drinking alcohol regularly has made me realize how bloated and fatigued I used to feel.   I'm also coming home earlier in the evening because I don't succumb to the late afternoon munchies - chips and candy bars.  I get hungry ar

3 With every breath you take

3 With every breath you take

"Exhale more and you'll lose more weight"  As at start to see the numbers decrease on the scale I am reminded of the NPR broadcast by a scientist, Ruben Meerman, who wanted to know exactly where does fat go when you lose weight.   Turns out that the fat turns into a gas and we exhale it.   You don't poop it out and it doesn't get turned into muscle.  It just drifts away on your breath.  Pretty interesting, huh   And no, sitting still and hyper-ventilating won't work  ... exhaling more because I'

2 The Future is Now

2 The Future is Now

Each year I create a theme as part of my weekly planning sessions for work and personal life.  This year the theme is "the Future is Now". It comes from my realization that if I want to be thin {some day} then I need to make decisions now to create that future.  I can't indulge my food cravings and expect to ever get to my future state.  Every minute of every day is a *now* moment.  It doesn't mean that bad decisions kill any chance of attaining goal - it just means that the poor decision is del

1 Feeding my Focus by removing distractions

This is Week 3 and I am psyched up for great things this week.  No distractions - i.e. business lunches, business trips, social dinners.  Focus is the word this week. I'm feeling well nourished, heightened clarity and a sense of control despite being at a ski cabin with all manner of Distractions (chips, wine, ya' know...).  In my Ink+Volt work planner/journal the quote this week is "Starve your Distractions. Feed your Focus."   How perfect is that!?  What does "starving my distractions" mean? B
