Worth the Dough




My friend, who is very similar to me, was over visiting this weekend and we got into a bit of discussion about weight struggles. It all started when she weighed herself on my scale and couldn't quite comprehend the number flashing under her toes. She started taking off her shoes, unloading her pockets, anything to match the number from the last time she had weighed herself. I can understand how it feels to just keep see the numbers adding up until you begin to ask yourself how did I get to this point? I don't feel much different but something is different.

I told her about starting Jenny but I didn't obviously push anything on her since I know that, like myself, she is a penny pincher on a strict budget. She looked at me accusingly, "isn't that really expensive?" Well, yes, I agree the start up fee did feel a bit expensive where as with your Weight Watchers membership you pay $10 a week (which if anyone who can do simple math, you can clearly see that the $520 a week was more than the startup fee ... I came in on a half off deal, but still) And the food, yes may be expensive but, before Jenny Craig when I would go grocery shopping (which is rare, anyways) I'd spend more than that for not as much food. Also, I went out to eat at for at least one meal each day and that adds up. I was probably spending about $250 a week on food and groceries where as now, I am spending roughly $150 a week. So, I am actually saving money.

I don't have to justify myself to anyone because I am happy of the results I've been getting as well as the invaluable information that this website, my consultant, and the reading materials have given me.

Yes, it is worth it. And when you add up the junk you would have spent at the food store and trips to McDonald's, pizza etc. Yes, we did spend more money. And the way I feel it's none of anyones business, thats why I don't tell alot of people.

I get that feeling but at the same time, I'm so proud of the program and that I am doing something... I want to shout it to the hills but don't want to be judged either
