4/2/15: Back to Working On Me With Jenny Craig

Focusing on myself is not a strong point.  Especially since having two kids I tend to forget about taking care of myself.  Recently I decided to make a change and start to feel better about myself.  The first step was to work on my weight.  My weight has fluctuated up and down since college.  It has been an ongoing battle.  Recently I also was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism which also makes it harder to lose weight and I had been struggling.  I am now on medicine for my thyroid and I decided it was time to head back to Jenny Craig.  
I am back on track and have been back for three weeks now.  In my first three weeks I lost 9 pounds*!  Here is the scale I fear so much, but hopefully will start to become friends with.  I love seeing the number drop in to the next set of 10 and each pound lost motivates me even more.
With Jenny Craig you buy your food and meet weekly with a consultant.  The food is really great and you buy your breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack.  There are always new options which I love.
The new Turkey Bacon and Egg White Sandwich is so good.  I love it.  There are also pancakes, french toast, cereals, and cinnamon rolls that are really good.
 The new Southwest Style Chicken Fajita Bowl is now my favorite lunch.  
 One of my favorite dinners is the Chicken Fettuccine but there are so many really tasty dinners.  The Three Cheese Ziti and Enchilada are also really good.
 There are even desserts to keep your cravings at bay.  The Triple Chocolate Cheesecake and Red Velvet cupcakes are awesome.  There are sweet and salty options.
Another great thing is that you also include fruit servings and milk servings.  They have really good bars that are called Anytime Bars for a milk serving.  I like the Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Anytime Bars.
You can also volumize your meals with "free foods".  These are ways to add volume to your meal and not a lot of calories.  There are several Membership Options that you can check out on their website.  There is even a monthly option.
I will let you follow me along on my journey to a new more confident Gilda.
