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 awareness of how many calories and the type of food I'm eating (i.e. protein, low fat, carbohydrates, sugar) to get those calories is a shift in my mental awareness.
Last month was my company's annual leadership meeting. Once a year I see people from my former assignment in another state. This year it felt great to show up wearing a new outfit and enjoying the compliments - "Wow, Nancy, you look great. Things must be really going well for you." I just smile and say - Yes, everything is going fantastic!
