Jenny Craig – I’m persevering!

I have now been doing the Jenny Craig diet for almost 6 weeks.  I’m still enjoying most of the foods and I’m definitely not feeling as hungry as I was in the beginning so my stomach must have shrunk, which is a good thing.  The first 4 weeks went really well and I was only 4.8lbs off my target weight but then I seemed to hit a wall and my weight didn’t budge.  After the initial weight loss I found this really hard to get my head around and I felt like i had failed in some way.  I’d had a few events where I couldn’t eat my Jenny Craig foods but I felt that I had chosen my replacement meals wisely.  When I spoke to Alex my Consultant, he was really positive and lifted my spirits again, I hadn’t put weight on so that in itself was a good thing and I couldn’t keep on losing in the manner that I had so now my weight would begin to come off slowly.

He was right, the following week I had lost nearly 1lb, so still a movement in the right direction and the closer I am getting to my goal the more determined I have become to reach it.  This week I dug out my old trainers and am going to start running each night, perhaps not very far but I feel that I want to tone up what I have left and make the best of myself.  The summer is coming and I want to feel good in my skin again, I would like to feel confident in clothes and maybe even find myself some new clothes to show off the new me!

Watch this space, I’m nearly there!

    Great stuff! Keep at it and you’ll feel fantastic. I’m still trying to avoid “helping” C with his mammoth pile of Easter eggs. I have a family wedding in the middle of July so I’m really hoping I’ll fit in the dress I’ve chosen to wear!?!?
