Default Rejoined Jenny Craig

Hi I rejoined Jenny Craig this week and would love to chat with others who are on the program. I noticed the Jenny Craig message board is not too active, so I was hoping to find other users here. Its only day 2 for me so far, but so far so go. I ordered the bodymedia gadget, hopefully it will get here in a few days. Anyone else using this?

I started back on JC on 4/12/11. I had been on about 2 years ago and lost about 40 pounds. I started back on JC, because I'm a bit of a "rules follower"...I just follow the rules...too many options for me on WW.

Hey all! New to this thread and Jenny.... def not dieting or 3fc. =)


I am starting in the morning. I just could not handle the responsibility of some of my diets so the pre made food will be so great.

I get the arm band Tuesday. Has anyone used this? I wonder what someone that uses it thinks of it. If it is really helpful and that much more beneficial.

Tomorrow is day one of a 50lb weight loss process and like at the beginning of them all... I am excited <3

I just skipped here to the last page, so maybe this has already been covered. But how do you all JCers like the food? I am currently using another program, and the price is steadily going up. Some of the food I just can't eat and I end up throwing it out and wasting the money.

Thanks!

Probably like any diet, you start figuring out which items you like, and which you don't. There are only a couple items I really avoid, the majority of their items I've been fairly happy with, though after being on the program over a year, my week-to-week orders tend to look pretty similar, picking mostly favorites.

I started Jenny last week (lost 5lbs out of 60). The food is more expensive than I planned. Does anyone know a way to lower the cost? I've decided to eliminate the souperizers and snacks (I can pop 100 orville red...). Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hey guys...I'm new to this website...I've been on Jenny Craig 4 weeks...lost 17.8 pounds...

I've been wondering...how the heck will I figure out what to eat when I get off their food.

I'm wondering if they ever cover that in the mini-counseling sessions. I love their swedish meatballs. So, when are they going to go over how to cook them at home so that they come out healthy!

I've been comparing the frozen entres to those sold by weight watchers at the grocery store...it seems that the breakfast items are very very similar in nutritional value.

You could save about $2 per breakfast entre by buying the ones at the grocery store.

That being said, I have not personally done this. I'm afraid if I starting breaking from the jenny program I will sabotage my weight loss. I'm doing good now...and am a firm believer if it ain't broke..don't fix it.

But, I was trying to think about...about life after jenny...and trying to decide how'd I'm maintain heatlhy eating.

I don't cook...and I'm not a big planner....I tend to wait til I"m really hungry..and then find the quickest food...ie. fast food.

Hi, everyone. I signed up for Jenny last Thursday, and started the next day, last Friday.

I have some specific concerns and questions because I am a vegetarian. Are there any other vegetarians doing Jenny here? I am thinking of doing a sort of modified JC on my own, due to the cost and the fact that the foods are so limited for vegetarians.

I posted a thread in the Vegetarian Chicks subforum here, and there have been views but no replies. I may have posted in the wrong place. If any of you would give me some information, I would greatly appreciate your time and insight.

1. What is a corporate VIP membership?

2. Do the counselors allow you to substiture?

3. Does anyone do Lifetime Fitness Team Weightloss and JC or modified JC?

Thank you.

Hi Everyone. I'm new to this board, but not new to JC. I lost about 20 pounds on it a couple of years ago. I now have 25 pounds to lose after the birth of my 2nd baby.
So far I have lost 50 on my own with calorie counting, but I have plateaued. I'm planning on joining JC again tomorrow.

I personally get really tired of the food very quickly. I'm not going to join long term but will do the whatever short term programs they may have, like the 20 pounds for $20. I'm just so desperate to lose these last pounds, I just can't seem to do it on my own with calorie counting.

If you haven't tried JC, I would do a short program like I did, in case you tire of the same foods easily.

Lettings: Sorry I don't have answers to your questions. My counselor in California did let me substitute some things, but I think I was required to purchase a certain number of lunches and dinners.

I have been on the Jenny Craig Program for about 3 weeks now. I have lost 8 pounts so far. I am using the armband and it has been very motivating. The food is good and I think they make it doable. I am glad I did it.

So I just joined again. Surprisingly enough, I am not sick of the food! I recognize some of the food still, but I am not burned out on it. It tastes better this time around.

I'm actually looking forward to my meals, and I like them =0) Yay!!!
So now to see if I lose some weight!

Photobuff: 8 pounds, Great!!! I hope I can lose like you =)

So far it has been pretty easy. I weighed this morning and if the scales are right, it looks like another pound!

I agree--the food is pretty good, but I have a question. With the armband you can look at what you eat and it graphs the protein, carbs and fat. It is aways about 2/3 carbs and the rest is a combo of fat and protein. Is this a good balance?

I am not very literate on nutrition....
