Weigh In Wednesday WOOHOO!

Okay so I have to stop for a minute and just vent about my Jenny Craig Consultant. I called yesterday because I knew I'd have a hard time weighing in and getting my food, so I gave her my order and told her I'd be in right when the center opened at 8am tomorrow because I am waiting for the delivery of my new bed. The delivery people are not going to be waiting around for me...and I don't want to have a hassle. She said okay.

So I told her I'd be in at 8am...so I get there early and I wait...and I wait...8:05am passes. And I live about 20 minutes from my center without traffic...and 291 was absolutely packed. So I started getting a little worried. I see her saunter in and I went, with my sister, to pick up my food, weigh in and go. She was extremely rude saying "Oh you need to wait, give me a minute". Uh lady, you've been keeping me waiting for almost 15 minutes now...I know how to weigh myself on the scale!!

I couldn't have been happier when I saw a loss of 3.6 pounds!!!! I am 279.4 today!!!!!!!!! Which means there is a new photo update of me on the sidebar of the blog, YIPEE!!!!! But she didn't say congratulations or great job...

What does she say?


Umm...pretty sure I'm not full of energy and buying all this Jenny Craig food if I'm not eating it? Also, I've told her about twenty times that I use sparkpeople to count calories and stay within my food goals even though I'm on Jenny Craig. I just looked at her...

Really? Do you think I got to 310 (My highest weight) by not eating? Do you think I just suddenly gave up eating after 23 years and decided I was done with it? Uh no, I like food too much ahaha. Second of all, I'm peppy, well hydrated, excited, coming into the center with my sister (Family support). Do I seem like a person who's starving themselves for weight loss? I don't know what the hell this woman is on...or what her deal is...but I'm so over it. I have lost a total of 30.6 pounds...and I'm not stopping here. WOO!!! That witch can be miserable on her own damn time. I'm done with it.

My sister even said to me on the way out "What is that lady's problem? You said good morning and how are you...and she was rude to you." She told me to "GIVE HER A FEW MINUTES" in a very snippy tone. And my sister heard the whole 'Are you not eating' comment. Clearly my sister has seen I've been eating lol. Whatever, sorry to continue to vent about it. I am just very annoyed.

In honor of eating right and losing weight...the healthy way, here is today's recipe!!! I decided I needed something a bit sweet to kick off my Wednesday.

Nutritional Breakdown


  1. Congrats on your weight loss!!! Why don't you switch consultants?

  2. Hey Della, thanks for your comment!

    The other consultant that's there on Wednesday is a witch too...and very two faced. I had her when I was on Jenny Craig before and she's awful. She makes you feel like crap.

    And I can't change my WI day...and the other center in my area is almost an hour away. I'm kinda stuck.

  3. Rewarded.... nasty consultant are the worst! What I do now is weighing on Saturday mornings, and do a phone consultation during the week. I don't get mufhout of the consultations honestly.... So I wegh quickly and chat It up with one of the nicer consultants during the week. Basically they're too busy to consult me on Saturday's, so I doit ,y way. Has worked s far.

    Gosh, still stunned by the rudeness!

    But, amazing weight loss!!!!!!!! You are a rockstar, BFF! Can I be you?? :)

  4. *do it my way. Has worked so far.

    Geez... Always so many typos on iPad....

  5. She really is a witch. Since you have no alternative but the other witch I would seriously call corporate and complain about witch 1 and witch 2.

  6. Oh and congrats on another fantastic loss!
