Default Jenny Craig Members - October '06

Calling all Jenny Craig members! Please post your progress and tell us how you like (or don't like) the program. We're very supportive here and would love to hear how it's going for you.

I started the program May 13th and have lost over 40 lbs. I exercise by hiking and going to the YMCA at least 5 times a week. My husband is doing the program with me only not going to JC...he's eating Healthy Choice dinners and watching his calories. He's also lost over 40 lbs.

I love the convenience of the prepared meals. I never liked coming home from work and having to cook a big meal. So this is the perfect plan for me. I feel like I have a personal chef! I guess I do...JENNY!!

I lost 1.6 lbs. this week. After 2 weeks of gaining I finally lost. Woo Hoo!! I was beginning to get discouraged but I fought through it. I actually exercised 2 times this week. I planned on exercising more but I didn't. But I exercised more than the previous week. Now I just need to make a schedule and stick to it.

How did everyone else do?

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile.

I have been so slammed lately. Work is CRAZY. And with that everyone in my family has celebrated a birthday or anniversary and I've been right there with them celebrating.

First the good news. I weighed in just over a week ago and lost 2.2 lbs.!!

Since then I've been crazy and haven't been entirely faithful to JC. I budgeted for the exceptions, but I think I'm going over my budget. Today I was supposed to be 100 percent (well, maybe 95 percent), but today I'm snacking on chips.

I have been pretty good with the walking. I missed my usual Sunday weigh-in because I did a 5K walk, which is good. I just need to get motivated to stick with the plan!

Please let me know how you are all doing. I feed off your success!

Way to go kmb73brwr! 1.6# is a good loss any week! Keep up the exercise because it will really help.

Congrats on your 2.2#, chrstna446! You've been REALLY busy, haven't you? Good for you on the 5K walk. Put the chips down and back away slowly

I ate out a couple of times too many this past weekend and once again, I'm going to try to make up for it before my weigh-in on Friday. I don't have a problem during the week but once Friday night comes.. I guess that's life, isn't it? But I've been doing that since I started and I've lost weight at every single weigh-in so it's working for me so far. Of course, the closer I get to my goal weight, the harder it will be to lose every week. But I'm committed to getting to my goal however long it takes.

I maintained my weight this week which is okay by me. I'll take it and do a better job of eating this week. How is everyone else doing?

Hi Sunshine,

How do you feel about the maintain, especially since it is your first so far? I think it is still a success. It sure beats gaining.

I feel pretty lucky. I showed a 1.2 lb. loss. I expected to either maintain or gain. Gains and maintains can be kind of toxic to me. It can sabotage my attitude sometimes.

I really want to do this. I set a goal of 6 lbs. for the next 4 weeks. I always try to stay away from goals, since it always seems the more I push my weight loss, the more it seems to slow down. But I really want to motivate myself and do this for the long haul.

The reason I started with Jenny again, was I needed the focus. I'm tired of dieting for a couple of days or a couple of weeks and then going back to my old habits of gaining again. I really wanted something to help me focus.

With this, I need to expect occasional maintains or gains and learn to accept them. Weight is almost never constant. Funny how easy it is to know the realities, but sometimes not so easy to accept them.

Anyway, this is how I'm feeling today . . .

Christina

I didn't mind maintaining at all and because the Jenny Craig food is so good, I don't have a problem getting right back into the program. I know what you mean about falling into bad habits again. I wonder about that because that's what I've always done before when I've lost a little bit of weight but I'm pretty determined this time not to gain any back. I felt awful weighing as much as I did and I hated looking in the mirror and especially buying clothes!

Congrats on your 1.2 lbs. That's great!

How's everyone doing? My weigh-in is tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I'll see a loss for this week. I've been eating right and getting about an hour of cardio a day since Monday.

Hi Sunshine,

I hope you find the number you are looking for on the scale.

I'm going out tonight with the girls for a couple of drinks and appetizers. Think good thoughts for me that I'll stay strong.

I feel like I've had a good week so far. My home scale is showing a loss. We'll see after tonight.

I also wanted to share that I love the new Brushetta Veggie Chips. To me it is like indulging in real chips. I'm buying a few bags this weekend!

I love the brushetta chips, too! I just got back from my weigh-in and lost 1.5 lbs. YEAH!

I'll also be going out tonight. Here's some for both of us!

Hello fellow Jenny Craiger's

I'm an old timer here on 3FC but new to your thread. I hope you'll let me join in. I'm a lifetime member of JC and just went back after a very long time away. When I called the center here in Fort Worth, TX, I told them that I was a lifetime member from many years ago, joining in Tampa, FL. They looked me up and said, YES, we have you in the system and the last time you were in was March of 1993!! WOW......ok, so now I'm back and just finished week #4.

Week 1 ~ lost 5.4 lbs
Week 2 ~ lost 2.2 lbs
Week 3 ~ lost .4 lbs
Week 4 ~ lost 3.3

total so far ~ 11.2

My husband is doing it too and that makes it a whole lot easier for me. No cooking since we both are eating Jenny meals.

I'm usually on the Weight Watcher's thread and even though I'm now doing JC, they'll keep me around after all these years

I hope I can join y'all here and get to know you.

Zoe! Wow, a lifetime member!! Does that mean you only have to buy the food? Do tell! Well, congrats on your 11.2 lb. loss so far. That's great for four weeks. My husband is eating Lean Cuisines so I don't have to cook either.

Chrstna446 - how did your Friday night out go? I had a great time and hope you did too.

Hi again

sunshine ~ Yes, I joined "lifetime" back in 1993 (so they tell me...YIKES!) and I only pay for my food. With my husband doing it too, it's SO easy. I was shocked to have lost 3.3 in my 4th week! With your husband doing the lean cuisine, it must be just as easy as mine.

Hello Ladies,

Zoe!

The first time I joined JC was about 15 years ago and I, too, am a lifetime member. I did join the Rewards program and am currently getting a 10% discount with a 20% discount coming in a couple of weeks. I think it is worth the $99 I paid since I will be buying JC food for quite some time.

I just got back from my weigh-in and I'm down another 2 lbs.

I walked over 2 miles yesterday. Generally I walk a little over a mile everyday during my lunch hour. My Saturday walks are my longer ones. I'm going to try to increase those as I go along.

Sunshine, I did pretty good. All the appetizers were high fat or fried, but I ordered a veggie platter and tried to eat more veggies than the rest. I didn't drink too much either! That willpower dust must have worked. I'm glad you had fun!

Tomorrow is Monday and I wish all of you lots of success in the week ahead!

Christina

Hello, Everyone!

I am seriously considering joining JC in January and am really interested in following your comments and progress. My understanding is that it is very pricey to join, but well worth the money. I have 90 pounds to lose. I wish I could join now, but it just isn't financially possible for me. I have not made an appt to meet with a representative to discuss my options yet, either, because I don't want to be pressured to sign up when I know I can't afford it yet.

Looking forward to getting to know ya'll! Hope you won't mind my lurking around a bit since I'm not an actual member yet!
