    When you get off track, you just wake up the next morning and get back on track. its no big deal, dust it off and keep going. As far as forgetting snacks, i know its easy to forgot the JC snacks at home, maybe you can have some shelf stable snacks in your car or purse all the time , just in an emergency? one of those tuna packs from the grocery store is a better choice than a cinamon roll. Whenever i'm under a lot stress and wanna eat off plan, i tell myself that eating off plan will only add to my the stress and anxiety i already have and just make it worse. I tell myself if i just stay on track i can go to bed tonight and at least feel comfort knowing i was on track. I might be grumbling and craving something else, but that feeling of at least being successful with my food choices is always better than the feeling of being off track and facing a gain. Just keep in moving forward, one week isn't gonna matter in the long term picture.

    Angela, Faith, trust, discipline and lean on your support team. You need to have some faith in yourself. Others have been where you are and they have successfully navigated the many pitfalls that you are experiencing. You can do this...others have...so can you. You are not alone. Trust JC. This program works...but you need to get deep into it. Read it over and over again. Do it over and over again. One day at a time. Just do day one...no cheating...then when you finish...do day two. It takes about 10 days for a new routine to set in and become habit forming...make it 10 days and see what happens. Live it. Show that you have the courage and discipline to achieve your goal. Discipline is hard...but you have to ask yourself (when tempted)...do you want to feel like you are feeling now. Have the courage and discipline to say NO! When times get tough lean on your support team at home and with JC. Be positive and put a positive spin on this. You can do this...and should look forward to your new journey and what it will be like when you get to your destination. We are all here to help. V/r Tom R

    @crazyjojo You got this! I lost 70ls and I started at age 53... These processed foods are in your freezer and ready every meal, every day. You never have to think about what to make for dinner.. and my results are amazing. I lost 1 -2 lbs a week, lost HUGE number son cholesterol (can't recall, but the doctor was astounded!!!) liKE @Tricia_Marie indicated the forum support is key - a place where you make friends learn what others are doing. SO I sooo hope you check in at least 1 time a day.... And write on the forum posts and let us know any issues or successes. You got this. My highest weight was a size 24W - and I am a size 6. I look better than I ever have in my life... It is my belief you get one life to live on this earth - and why waste another moment thinking negatively about your weight .. or having to start a diet. I did the plan that cost more - and chose whatever I wanted for my entrees.. and I lost weight - slow and steady. Moving in this world in a lighter body is Much much much much much easier. So yes - you can do it. Scared? Be scared off achieving your dreams That's what is in store for us. Please let us all know you are on the plan...or starting now (If you strayed at all )..... Either way, let us support you.. come post on the daily sharing thread or any of them and we will find you.

    I just posted a response about this very topic. The gist: I'm 70, had gained weight over time and couldn't lose even a pound on my own. Even tried WW, nothing. I was afraid my age plus all those past diets had messed up my metabolism beyond return. I tried Jenny, highly skeptical that I could lose weight at this age. That was mid April. As of today, I'm 20 pounds lighter, even below my goal weight. If I can do this, YOU can do this. Just follow the plan exactly, add exercise if you can, keep going, and you will see results.

    Sue, you are a BadA$$ in the best of ways! Keep looking good and feeling good; it will keep us on plan and on track! It is difficult to look at old photos and see where we’ve been but it’s so inspiring to see where we are or are headed now. You give a lot of hope to others who are struggling with their weight, myself included!! {{{hugs to you}}} And Mr. Right? I bet he’s going to show up soon!! He’d better have as many wonderful attributes as you do! When I was single, I dated Mr. First Love, Mr. Liar, spent years with Mr. Can’t Commit, and finally met (and married) Mr. Right! It will happen for you!!

    I think your feet are brave for branching out. Mine are cowards, wear walking shoes and sandals and that's about it! Even when I was teaching it was only comfie shoes.

    I do mine on the air fryer. 10-11 minutes at 400. Tops get a little crunch and bottoms crisp. About my favorite meal!!!

    I can so relate to this blog. I have been overweight for the last 20 plus years. Sometimes I feel like I will never see a normal weight number again, and then I return to the forum, and these blogs, and am inspired all over again! I’ve lost 19 so far, and another 45 to go. Ounce by ounce, I tell myself! You can do this, FINALLYonmyway!!!!!

    @missbumble I just love you bubbly personality as it shows through everything you say on here!! Awesome!! You always inspire me to keep on going and I can do this. I'm at my half-way point to my goal weight and I've been thinking about maintenance and how tedious it will be-I'm hoping it won't be too hard. I refuse to gain this weight back! I plan on staying with JC for as long as I can afford it. It all depends on my husbands employment status-Oil and Gas Industry (Very fickle). I have my favorite JC foods so I know I will be using them as well as MOMO on maintenance. Anyway, I have time to think about all that until I hit goal. The Chocolate Lava Cake, Chocolate Cheesecake and Florentine Pizzas are some of my very favorite JC foods too. The exercise is something I get to get going on which isn't easy for me due to the chronic pain, etc. I've got to start doing it slowly and plan to starting tomorrow when my husband is working out. You have done fantastic and look great! Size 6 is Great!! I use to be size 6-8 until I gained the weight back. Congratulations!! Buy the clothes and enjoy them. I'm with you and Let's Do This!!

    So I cant recall how much you lost off hand - but you are like the poster for Jenny Craig. So beautiful and such an amazing spirit!!! This journey is so worth it!!! Gorgeous woman! Just went to your Blog post Before and After, you are a miracle and testament to this program. I am so grateful to have you here on the forum to inspire me. Even when you are busy and not posting daily - just know you have made a huge difference in so many people's lives. Keep posting the pictures!One day, one meal, one experience at a time - We got this!

    Thanks guys - I cant really buy fancy shoes - so I gave all of these a try - and kept 4 - the black patents and tan patents - are not that bad comfort wise.. the platform makes them bearable... and now I have something for a dress for work... I kept the silvery sandals and the ropey ones with the squarish heel. Everything else went back to store. I am used to wearing SAS comfort shoes - not the sexiest...wanted to risk discomfort a bit.. and branched out a bit...

    Love anything polka dot! You and the dress are sooooo cute! I don't wear dresses much anymore, being the old retired lady! But I just found a casual one and bought it any way. Now where to wear it? Az is pretty casual so I will just have to start a new trend! I also just got a black and white polka dot cross body bag that I love. Wish we had a dress barn here, will have to check it out online. I was raised to be a Bloomingdale girl too but it didn't take!

    Marialove , Congratulations?! Without being a Sceptic that is a huge difference overnight ! Do you trust your scale ? Have you weighed in on the Jenny scale ? I had this happen to me right before I joined Jenny . My scale was way off . Lower by 10 pounds . I was schocked when I climbed onto the Jenny scale and was at my highest. Maybe you have lost 14 pounds overnight but I doubt it ! Sorry to be a Debbie downer . Just being realistic Clare

    Thank you for your kindness. I still have hope. I will do all I can to prolong the time-span and hope they find a cure. And Jenny's recipe for tuna salad is terrible. lol But that was Sunday lunch for me today and I managed to eat it. We can do this.

    Hi @20doitnow, I have been told that it isn't a "true plateau" unless you are the same weight for 3 weeks. I know it is frustrating to not see the scale move (or for it to go up) believe me, I KNOW! Please remember that week 1 is going to be your best loss because a lot of it is water loss. Are you able to incorporate any type of exercise? Which plan are you on....Rapid Results or Classic? Have you spoken to your JCC? Are you drinking all of your water? Are you eating foods that are high in sodium? i.e.: pickles or olives? Also if you don't have much to lose, it is harder and takes longer. I wish you the best. Keep posting here and reading, it helps a lot!

    I think that is great. This is real life. You will eat out and you should enjoy time with your family. If someone told me I could never eat out again, I would freak out! I enjoy eating out. I too ate out this weekend. I am also ok with it. Will it slow down my progress? Maybe. Am I ok with that? yes. In the grand scheme of things, we are both headed in the right direction and that is what it is all about.

    Sounds awesome! Add a signature with your starting weight, current weight and goal - It helps us know where you are in your journey. I would also carry a 3x5 card around and read it 3x/day -on why you want to lose weight. This program is inspiring. And one way I know I succeeded was by going to JCC every week - good weeks and bad. Just keep doing this... and I am not quitting. So for me it takes action every day to keep the weight off (Or to lose it). So you got this.. Sondus like it may take a while - so just keep reading the response card and showing up each week. I may not have lost it fast (1-2 lbs/week). But I am thin. Highest weight was 246.25 - and highest on Jenny was 207.8. So yes it takes a while - but it is so worth it. And whether I a, on lower calories and losing or more calories and maintaining with more treats or extra food... it's still all the same. Still practicing portion control and for me counting my JC exchanges or in my case calories in MY Fitness Pal. This program works. Here's to an amazing year for you!

    Hi BelindaA! Welcome! I had to laugh when I read what you wrote about Oprah. I remember that. Guess what I weighed the day I walked into JC? 284 pounds! (You think that means I could kick the Heavy Weight Champs BUTT?) I can relate to so much of what you wrote, particularly the physical struggles to do the simplest tasks, and using food as your "medicine". It was certainly my best friend. Or so I thought! I think it's wonderful that you're taking your husband with you on your journey! Misery lives company, right! Seriously though, having a good support system can make ALL the difference in the world. I lost almost 95 pounds in 10 months while I continued to feed my thin husband whatever he wanted.There were days it was TORTURE for me to watch what he consumed. Fast forward to today and my dear husband has been diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. Now he's on the journey with me whether he likes it or not!! (Not to lose weight, of course, but to eat more of the healthy foods that nourish and fuel his body properly.) He was always incredibly supportive every step of the way during the 90+ pound loss, but last week he told me he has a new appreciation for the discipline I've had in turning my life around. That was music to my ears! I hope that you and your husband will enjoy that same appreciation of eachother! As for that "giant belly", just stay focused and work hard. It will be a distant memory sooner than you think! Best wishes for great success! Jen

    I'm confused why you would join Jenny and not eat their food....if you are going to make your own meals wouldn't weight watchers be the way to go? The beauty of Jenny is the convenience of the meals and it also helps with portion control. I would highly recommend sticking with the Jenny meals at least until your half way goal..

    Flute, your daily calories, including milk', fruit, and limited extras should be anywhere from 1200-1400 calories..nonstarchy vegetables are unlimited so eat as much as you want but don't count their calories in. You should stick to 80-100 calories per milk serving and watch your fruit portions. Don't skip foods ... Eat all that you are supposed to..just make sure your portions are right! Follow your menu..Jenny makes it easy...don't make it harder by counting calories.
