Labor Day Challenge ACHIEVED!

Another 1.8 pounds gone...which puts me at a total of 25.2 lost since I started my Jenny Craig journey! I am very excited and motivated. I am doing lots of meals and days on my own and still losing weight! I like the Jenny Craig food but I also know that I have the ability to make good, healthy choices!!

My new goal is to be down 40lbs by the time that I go to Ireland in November 2011! I have 14.8 pounds to go to reach that goal and I am confident I can do it. I don't want to aim TOO high to say I'll be down 50 by November but I'm hoping. Maybe my new Yoga DVD will help me get there! Haven't gotten a chance to do it yet but I WILL!

This morning I went to my Jenny Craig appointment and brought my sister. She commented to me, without my having to say anything that my consultant was rude. And that she got a bad vibe from her, which is something I've felt since day one. Everyone who's there on Wednesday is nasty, rude, and gets upset when I don't buy all their food. Today I bought barely anything from them and it was very tense. Oh well, I know that this is working for me!

After my meeting with my consultant I went out to breakfast with my sister. I had a small splurge, 2 egg omelette with onion, mushroom and some jalapeno bacon and an unsweetened iced tea. Not too worried about it! I didn't eat a huge breakfast sandwich or the ever-tempting caramel apple walnut french toast! Planning on hanging out, X-Files marathon and Yoga later tonight! :D

Good luck to my Wednesday Weighers! And tomorrow starts a month of healthy recipes!!!

Update: I've figured out how to 'schedule' a blog post! My first recipe will post at 10am tomorrow (barring any blogger complications). If not I'll post in manually when I get home tomorrow!


  1. It seems they would hire supportive, nice people at Jenny Effin Craig?! Weird and uncomfortable, ignore the little B and do what is best for you (and your wallet - their stuff is spendy!).

  2. I've heard similar experiences from others who used to do Jenny Craig. Considering that their major income comes from those foods, you'd think they'd be friendlier to their members.

  3. Congrats on meeting your labour day goal!!!
    Way to go!!!

  4. I would seriously consider changing WI days so you can get another JCC (or another center). There's just no sense in that! Congrats on your reached goal!

  5. Congratulations on hitting 25 lbs, and on ANOTHER great weigh-in! You're doing so great!!

    Excited to see what your recipe is tomorrow. I've been all about cooking lately, as you may have noticed. I have another buffalo recipe for tomorrow... I'm a scheduler, too.

    PS... I agree with the above about changing days. I started to get bored with my JCC and since I switched it's been so much better. I can't even imagine if my JCC was rude. I don't think I would have stuck with it!!

  6. I would def change my JCC! That's uncalled for! Anyway, you are doing FABULOUSLY! Keep up the determination!
