  2. Day two of Jenny Craig is winding down to an end. It was challenging at times. Even though I had ate, I wanted to eat more. It was as if I was craving for something. So I had to throw extra willpower to stick to the plan. The food is filling and is planned out for me. So it takes all the guess work out of what I need to do for the day. I've been trying to lose weight for years. So now I recognize I need to take the burden of worrying about food away while I start this weight loss journey. It has helped me to not constantly think about food. Like normal thoughts for me would be "what am I g

  3. So here I am, sitting in my study in front of two ten feet over-sized windows. The window's true beauty is not its size, simple oak or oblong bronze hardware all the way from South Africa, it is actually how it captures the sun and pushes it through the pane. For a moment, the ray makes me forget that I've been perched between two internal translucent lingering fixtures in my life: a fear of failing and a dark cloak of anxiety. Before starting the day and setting to write my meal plan down I decided to take several deep breaths and pray to cling on to the good in everything around me.Why not.

  4. So every day I discard, giveaway or put in the upstairs closets outfits that are too big. It's an adventure. So after my workout class - I basically am likely in for the day... Anyway I felt like I was putting on a costume. 1) wear clothes that are just so small.... 2) wear eye liner etc.. mean I am at home today literally working at computer. So anyway - with no further ado.. I bring you BadA$$ sue with a message of peace. Oh and today I am in solidarity with @Crayola64we are not eating mindlessly between our meals.. no extra veggies for me.... no snacking endlessly - today it is planned and

  5. So one of my favorite stores is Dress Barn... I grew up in a family that would only shop in Bloomingdales.. so this is quite a controversial move.. but I just love the dresses and clothes that I think thin people wear!!! I have a pair of their Signature Fit shorts on now So I picked out a ridiculous dress, in a ridiculous size... and wore it to see my client in Houston yesterday. So without further ado....

  6. So for the past 22 weeks (maybe 23) I have been going mostly on Saturdays to Jenny Craig to see Madeline and weigh in and say hello. Periodically I have had them take my picture.

  8. Well then you have to decide. Are you willing to trade what you want most for what you want now? You've worked all this time, you've had great success, it's been easier than before. It's been less tedious than before (logging every bite...ugh) So today was the first day of state-mandated testing- yes. You got through it, yes. You got some really good news, check. And now you think it should be party time? You want to reward yourself for the stress and celebrate the good news? You can do that. It is not your planned cheat time. The question is..can you be okay taking some breaths, enjoyin

Did not find it, but found some nice Size 6 Calvin Klien shorts and beautiful sexy shirts for work and fun. As I was shopping I was thinking.. So you are going to spend this money on clothes... and what stay this weight? The answer was yea I am!! Yes we can So maintenance is tough - I love food! But Jenny Craig is here for me - and I believe I will do this ... one day at a time .. just keep on keeping on. So I picked up some food at the center and told them I was going to stay connected ev

  10. Yippeee.... So I am trying to get to goal... and now it is .8 lbs away. I lost 2.4 lbs this week. Ok so I lost 0 last week - but even 1.2 lbs per week this close to goal is very exciting! Jenny Craig is an awesome plan!!! If you are considering it - Just do it. If you have lapsed.... so...come on back!! You got this! Chocolate Lava cake awaits. I have been working out at a gym I adore (Orange Theory Fitness). (Note: You don't have to workout to be on Jenny - Physical Activity helps!!! And it's great for you - but most of my issue is around food and w

  11. Medusa: This is boring. Me: Yup, it can be boring. It's also boring to sit on the sidelines and not dance because I'm worried about my jiggle. It's boring to not participate because I'm self-conscious. It's boring to wear the same old bulky clothing that fits rather than all the cute stuff in the closet. Oh my goodness is it boring to wake up every-single-morning and think about my weight, and my discomfort, yet not do a thing to change these circumstances.

  13. April 9th, 2019 - I made the appointment at Jenny Craig. I had been feeling lost this past 4 plus months. My weight had been creeping up. It started around Thanksgiving, and by the end of February - It was up a good 10 pounds, and by the end of March .... 15. IKES. I can pin point one specific thing ..... but the less obscure thing was the fact that I went Vegan in October. At first with great success ..... feeling fabulous, curing constipation, eating lots of veggies, fruit, beans and legumes, and whole grains. But by Thanksgiving - I found myself adding more and more JUNK food (Vegan

  15. Had to try my new bundt pan, so I made this non-recipe: 1 box of Pillsburry Sugar-Free Vanilla Cake 1 can (15 oz) Libby's pumpkin puree 3/4 cup milk or water pure vanilla extract, optional Mix and bake at 325 for about 30 minutes. Makes 16 generous servings (98 cal, 1.5 g fat, 26 g carbs, 1.9 g protein). Next time I may try greek yogurt instead of milk. Not yet sure if this freezes well.

It works!!! I have come to love the food. love the people, love the plan. So today went out with my fitness coach, her mom and another friend- needless to say they are breathtakingly beautiful women. After lunch (salmon power bowl, cooked dry with JC dressing - about 400 calories). We went to the Vegan bakery where I ate zilcho. (and was not tempted... Afterwards - I bought this new dress.

  18. Just decided to count my Days (ok google did that for me)... and we are here at Day 333. 2 days from my birthday. What a fantastic present. I can tuck in a shirt. Priceless!!!! I am so very happy I went to Jenny. I am definitely my thinnest ever. I buy size small. Whaaat? Bought a jean jacket to where on my date (yes date) next week. Oh wait the point is I bought it at Banana Republic (Which for the record I could not fit into their clothes 333 days ago) and it's a size small. It might be on the smaller side.. but my workouts at OrangeTheory seem to make you smaller - so I think it's fine.

  19. Well I hit 32 pounds gone...from 214 to 182. It has been slow but steady. My daughter is 42 pounds down. We are going to our first doctor's appt. since we started Jenny on February 1st. I can't wait to get the results of our blood work. I know my doctor will be happy. I had quit smoking about 3 years ago and also had my thyroid removed. My blood pressure was so high that she put me on three types of medication . I also started pre-diabetes medicine. My A1C had creeped up to 6.1. My pill box looked like my mother's use too. I have felt so good lately. I have not had a cold or flu since I quit

  23. Happy New Year! For the record it's Jan 2 - and I started this challenge officially 12/31. I'd say new me - but I am so glad I joined Jenny (seriously) in August! I guess the new me will be someone who keeps the weight off - and doesn't have being overweight define me. Had a few pictures taken at the gym to mark the start of this challenge - I had dribbled water on me - so I realize the picture is a bit strange. But it's still a way to mark the start of this challenge. i certainly could have worn a better workout outfit. Oh well - I am very glad I make it to the gym - the running

  24. My last couple posts have been about the "cheating" that I did this week -- and the anxiety that I felt as a result. I am hopeful that my future posts will be a little more forgiving of myself because my weigh-in today was very positive. I lost 6.6 lbs this past week. 6.6 lbs in one week. And not my first week either. It's actually more than I'd lost in the previous 2 weeks combined. I had been quite happy with my 3 lb losses the last couple weeks, but I am stunned that I lost 6.6 lbs the week that I had been kicking myself for eating off-plan a few times.

  25. Well -today I got weighed in. Not that exciting. I lost weight - weight loss is going well. The program is going well. Who cares!!! Cause ...wait for it! Today I broke 90 on the golf course - I obliterated it and shot an 85!!! I am a new golfer (about 3 years in), I play mostly just weekends....and today I shot a 43 and a 42.... Wahoo!!! I had one hole at an 8 and one at a 7. Net net I shot an 85!!! Spectacular. No mulligan... Did I miscount one hole? Maybe.. its all possible - but not 5 strokes worth. I broke 90! L'chaim, Amen and Hallelujah!!!

Anyhow not sure why but off I went to tackle the thing that I did not have to do - the upstairs closet. (Next up is cleaning house before Xmas party at sisters...) Anyway I decided to go through all of the clothes. Clothes are up there because they are too big or to

  27. I am excited to take on my weight loss journey and log it here along the way. By way of introduction.... I am 32 years old and the mother of two young children. I am a middle school teacher. I don't know that I would describe myself as a chubby or even overweight child, but I wasn't very active. Starting around the time I hit puberty in late elementary school, my weight just kept creeping up. Throughout high school. Throughout college. I was overweight on my wedding day. I was overweight when I got pregnant with my first child. I lost a few pounds just bef

  28. First Weigh In Was TODAY! I've lost 8lbs so far! I have a long way to go of course, my very first goal is to get under 300lbs, I am now at 360lbs. I'm just on Cloud 9. It's crazy because this is only my first week on JC and I'm already starting to change my whole outlook on food. It's difficult at first but the results shows that it's completely worth it! Plus for a diet, I really enjoy the food. The small portions sometimes drives me crazy, especially on weekends, because weekends are usually when I feel like snacking the most but it's something that I just have to get used to It's al

  29. Each year I create a theme as part of my weekly planning sessions for work and personal life. This year the theme is "the Future is Now". It comes from my realization that if I want to be thin {some day} then I need to make decisions now to create that future. I can't indulge my food cravings and expect to ever get to my future state. Every minute of every day is a *now* moment. It doesn't mean that bad decisions kill any chance of attaining goal - it just means that the poor decision is delaying my success. Small decisions have big impacts -- for good or for bad. My future state (and goa

  30. I see that my last blog post was January of 2017. That means I am coming up on two years since I quit JC and decided to try other options. Just for the record, nothing worked and I got to my highest weight of 316 pounds before I finally sought help from a doctor. I have lost 32 pounds since May. And it feels good. But I have been here before - so that is why I am back to JC. Of all the things I tried, I feel that the JC Community was by far the most supportive and most helpful. I picked up my food and had my first meeting with my JC consultant last night. Today I sit here feeling pretty g

  31. I'm not sure what made me type in "Jenny Craig" on my phone, one night, a few weeks ago.It seems that I have been yo-yo dieting for the last six years. Up 20 lbs, down 25, up 30 again. Like many of you, I've given many diets and workout programs a go. Paleo, Whole30, keto, vegan, myfitnesspal, crossfit etc. I seem to be really good at losing 20 pounds, but its past that mark where I usually fall off the wagon. When I started Jenny two weeks ago, I weighed 220lbs. The highest I've ever weighed. My goal weight is 140lbs. I feel like I don't look like myself. I feel phys

  32. Yesterday I posted about my goal to follow the plan precisely. Not aiming for perfection, but also not using "I'd better not be a perfectionist!" as an excuse to eat off plan. One week of eating precisely on plan is possible. Then I ate my dinner at like 4pm b/c I was hungry! I figured I could has a salad with my family at a normal dinner time. But that meal didn't turn out how I planned. We took my 4 year old to the ER where he tested positive for the flu AND strep AND pneumonia. We were there from 5-9:30. My husband had a vending machine snack and offered me some -

  33. So On JC I have lost a lot of weight -and am very grateful.. However - I decided to finish strong... or transition to maintenance strong... Sol today i got weighed in at the gym for my OT Weight Loss challenge - supposedly 6 weeks but officially starts Monday - so it's a bit longer. So weight was 154.4 I think (with sneakers). We were told to wear a tight outfit. So I sort of liked working out in the outfit... Anyway I am amazed that I am this thin (in clothes) and I know I don't have much to lose.. just getting to my goal of 145. (and I have a pair of jeans or two to fit into .. s

  35. Yeah, I said it. I'm giving myself a pat on the back. I think us women need to do that every now and then. We don't need other people to do it for us. We need to make sure we're doing it to ourselves, right? So, why am I giving myself a pat on the back? Because I'm rockin' the JC vibe! I got through a potentially destructive day: I signed up to be a Polling Inspector in our NY general election this year. On Tuesday, I arrived at 5:30 am and readied myself for a long day until 9:30 pm. I actually thought ahead. I packed all my JC non-frozen foods for the day because I just

  36. I recently hit what I think (HOPE) is my rock bottom. My weight has been steadily increasing forever. I thought I had it somewhat under control, but after quitting JC prior to the summer I continued to gain. One day I stepped on the scale and the most upsetting thing happened. The scale registered at over 300 pounds. I stepped off and laughed. I laughed to cover the tears. I weigh 300 pounds. And I can see it in pictures. I can feel it in my clothes and in the difficulty I have carrying myself around. I am ashamed. But I'm also at a point where I call it as I see it. I'M FAT. I AM AN OBESE WOM

Saturday 9/30/17 9AM Hi Guys - Today i go for my weigh in - I will definitely be up. Last week went pretty well - but Thursday was a night of binging. There's no way that is allowed for on my plan or way of life. For me it is a terrible sign that I may spin out of control and gain the weight back. So clearly it makes me upset!!! These past few weeks work has been incredibly stressful.

I made the recipe using Emily Bites muffin recipes - based with oatmeal. I swapped out the sugar for Truvia baking Blend and they landed at about 80 calories. I took 2 frozen muffins out of freezer into fridge last night, popped them in micro for about a minute and had them with coffee. A lite breakfast - and t's weigh in day.

Nevertheless, I always thought I couldn't handle a plain latte. When I calorie-counted in the past, I sacrificed an extra 130 calories per day so that I could add Monin coconut syrup and Ghiradelli sweet ground chocolate to my espresso and milk every morning. To me, it was totally worth it. In my mind, I couldn't drink coffee any other way. And hey, I could stay within my calorie goals even with this treat

  44. Today I weighed in at 260 lbs which was great since I started at almost 280. I am really excited and my BMI is under forty. I remember when I was gaining weight steadily the last couple of years and when the scale first reached 260 how depressed and ashamed I felt. I thought I would never get back to 200. I remember how it felt when the scale said 280 and I thought I am going to three hundred pounds soon if I don't stop. Now on the way down I won't forget how great it feels seeing that 260 again from the other side. Next stop seeing that 250 again!

I dug around to find it - and want to keep it where I can find it easily - because the scale is the one thing that can ruin an otherwise good day, (even though I know the "truth" about the fickle scale). She can be a real mood wrecker! I have conversations with my scale. I call her Lady Di (my short for obedience!). (Well - in truth some days I call her the B word, or worse....). I actually have conversations with Lady Di. They go something like this: "Come on Di, ... we're friends!!!!" She usually says ... "It's

Sure it has been hard that I can't go to my favorite cafes and get a tasty pastry and coffee... now I just get the coffee and drink it while I eat a protein bar and walk my baby around the city. Being pregnant wasn't easy for me, gaining 60 pounds was hard and the hardest part is looking at yourself in the mirror and not recognizing your own face. I can say I feel great about taking control of my life again. Having a

  47. The point of starting any diet, is to change. Some people focus on the amount of pounds they need to lose, some on being healthy, and others want to fit in a specific outfit and attend a special event. These are all good goals. But as I re-start this path, I ask myself, what is my goal for this change? I thought for a while, and something came to my mind. I have been given a gift. A home for this thing that makes me, well, me. God gave me this body. He says it is His temple. It's time for this house of mine to undergo a total renovation. It's a gut job. Ha!

So tight that they cut into the skin around my waist and are incredibly uncomfortable to wear. In fact I dreaded to put them on this morning. But because I am a huge procrastinator (another topic for another time) I didn't have other clean laundry for work. So on the tight pants go. Here's the good part...Although they are still snug, they are no longer TIGHT. They do not cut off all circulation in abdomen. They don't hurt a

  49. I absolutely LOVE some of the Jenny Craig foods. But I am concerned that they have too many carbs and not enough protein (and fairly high sugars.) Pasta, potatoes and bread abound in their prepackaged meals. Research shows that eating a higher proportion of protein results in more weight loss and less loss of muscle mass. For example: In a study published in Nutrition Metabolism, dieters who increased their protein intake to 30 percent of their diet ate nearly 450 fewer calories a day and lost about 11 pounds over the 12-week study without employing any other dietary measures.
