Today marks the end of my four weeks. In that time my kids started school and dance and football. I worked and went on a trip with my husband and stayed in a cabin full of junk food with my in-laws. We celebrated Labor Day and attended a birthday party, went to the movies and prepared and ate meals at least 84 times. Four weeks equates to a lot of opportunities to try out what I have been learning from Jenny Craig.
Before I started this plan, dieting was always about something coming up. I want to lose 20 lbs before a wedding in 3 months. For the first time I am focusing on the end result, not an event. And because of that I don't feel the need to force myself to the gym every day for 90 minutes, which only makes me feel like I deserve to reward myself with a snack anyways. Instead I am planning on this taking a while, sort of like paying of a loan or saving money to buy a new house. Big goals deserve plans and plans take time.
And I think it is the plan behind Jenny Craig that makes it so successful. Your consultant helps you plan out your food. Your consultant helps you plan out your exercise for the week. You plan your week and your consultant helps you plan how to make it successful.
I averaged just over a 2 lb loss every week. It doesn't make for a dramatic before and after picture, but I can honestly say it has made a dramatic difference in the way I feel. And I know it will only continue to get better. And hopefully next year I will have a great before and after picture to show you. For now, I am happy with the 10 lbs that I am no longer carrying around. I even decided to let a friend of mine take some pictures of me for my blog.
