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 something that will hold her over until her next meal/snack in a couple hours.   I realized that before JC - I often thought of lunch as needing to hold me until dinner - which would often be 6-7 hours later which would give me an excuse to load up on a huge sandwich or a full size enchilada platter. Often consuming 800+ calories in that one meal. When I think about just eating enough for 2 hours of nourishment/energy it really helps me with portion control and the recognition that my hunger is gone.   What are some ah-ha moments you have had on our Jenny Craig journey?   Do you have one you can share?  Post it here, please!

I love that!  When I'm eating a meal that looks "small" at first glance ...... I think "I get to have lemon cake tonight!!"  I suddenly don't feel deprived!  I think so many of us have lived on diets of "lettuce and chicken breasts" that we developed an ALL OR NOTHING mentality.  Jenny Craig rewires our thinking - that we can eat cake, egg burritos and pasta.  We just have to eat small amounts and let ourselves learn how to be satisfied, because we can eat good food again - in a few hours like you said!  Good stuff - thank you!
