Hi, I am new today. Literally, starting in the morning. My first appointment with with my counselor/consultant is next week. Any advice to get started? Also, I did not buy the Max scale, but I'm wondering if any of you have.- and if so, what are your thoughts on it?
The amount of sugar in the desserts/snacks/breakfasts and sandwiches on JC seems so counterintuitive. I usually try to stay away from sugar and now I'm having more than ever it seems. How is this healthy?
That is great news for me!.... Lol.... Thank you for responding Miss ChristiS! ... I have an appointment with JC this week.... I will confirm that ... But thanks for giving me the heads up..... I'll be picking up a few!
I have heard JC doesn't focus on maintenance as much as they used to in the past. But, it's a good thing to talk to your consultant/coach about. They usually start helping you make a plan as you get closer to your goal.
Just started today and I'm really excited. I've lost 50 lbs on my own with diet and exercise the past few years, but can't seem to get this last 15-20 off; so I just did the darn thing today and got all my food. The no alcohol thing is going to be the hardest for me, I love my wine at the end of the day...but I'm super determined to do this!
I stopped alcohol for the time I was on JC, and it was a game changer. I realized how much of a difference it makes with weight loss and weight maintenance and how much better I feel when I don't drink. It was a little hard at first, but, like you, I was determined. I've been on maintenance for 6 years, and I still rarely drink. Along the way I discovered I could still have fun without it - plus be more productive the next day. Lol.
I am brand new this week and don't like a few of the meals I received (I don't eat anything with mayo or cream sauces). Can anyone suggest a replacement meal for the Chicken Ranch Melt and the Fettucine Alfredo? I can purchase something or make it, I just want to stay as close to on plan as possible. Thanks!
I'm back for my 3rd go around on Jenny so I know what I like and don't like. If you contact your counselor they can swap out a food in the same category that will keep you on plan. I had a few foods this first week I needed to change (I knew from previous experience that I didn't like them) and my counselor read me a list of foods I could exchange them for.
I think so, I went to the doctor a week before my first weigh-in and the weight was within 2 pounds, so I believe my center's scale is accurate.
More importantly, my weight at the center is definitely accurate as compared to my weight on the scale a week before and a week after. I have no reason to doubt it. When I follow the plan and eat all my fruits and veggies I see the numbers go down.
My home scale is about 2 pounds lower than the center's scale consistently. My home scale is also usually lower than at the doctor.
Hello @cherily, welcome to Jenny Craig! if you have not already, I recommend downloading the free Jenny Craig app- there are resources available such as our grocery list and the list of fresh and free additions. On the app if you select More > Resources > Fresh & Free guide there is a list of the non starchy veggies you could use towards your salad. A few examples are lettuce, spinach, onions, carrots, celery, cucumbers. If you scroll past the veggie list you will see a list of flavor enhancers and beverages which are okay to have as well.
If you are unable to download the app I am happy to send you a PDF of the lists- feel free to send me a message with your email address
