12/3/15: Jenny Craig Progress

The struggle with weight is real.  I have lived with it ever since graduating college.  Life is rushed, meals are rushed and my weight suffers.  I have been back on Jenny Craig and wanted to give an update on my journey and what I am learning.  I have been back on this journey to find the old me for two months.  As of now I am down 20 pounds and feeling great!*
Recently I had a 15 year college reunion and the thought of going did not even cross my mind as I am not happy with the way I look.  I knew right then and there it was time to make a change and head to Jenny Craig.  Several people said, "but it is the holidays!"  I think the holidays are the perfect time to start.  As it says they are "holi" "days" not weeks, not months.  If I can't make it by for a few days here and there making better choices how can I for the rest of my life?  Why put off till tomorrow what you can do today?  With kids everything is about them and the focus is never on me but it really needs to be so that I can be more active with my kids.
I am no longer craving sugar and salt but instead craving salad and vegetables.  I am also trying not to build my life and rewards around food.  It used to be if someone did a great job on something we would go out for ice cream.  Ice cream is not needed as a reward.  What about going to the park instead.  

What I love about Jenny Craig is the convenience.  I don't need to think about what I am making for myself.  Everything is pre-portioned out for me and allows me to learn the right portion control.  The food options on Jenny Craig are great and I just found out they will be adding 10 new foods in January!  
Check out all of their food here.  One of my personal favorites is the Loaded Baked Potato.
Right now they have a promotion going on to lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks or get your monthly fees back!  Why not try it!  Also if you refer friends you get $25 off food.  Feel free to mention my name Gilda A. if you join.
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.
