Jenny Craig: Week Thirty Five Results

I took a week off of Jenny Craig since we were going to Atlanta and Florida to visit family last week. I knew this would be a trip full of wonderful foods...and boy was I right.

Beef ribs, ham, Indian food, Italian, BBQ, fast food, you name it, I ate it. You could almost say I was on a bender...fell off the proverbial wagon...damn near ate the wagon!

The day after we got back, I weighed myself and my scale said I had gained just over 9 pounds. NINE POUNDS! In one week! Luckily, the next day it was only 4.6 pounds gained...the 9 pounds included water weight and bloat. I had several days to go before my next Jenny Craig weigh-in, so I followed the plan and behaved.

So I had my weigh-in yesterday (Tuesday) and I was still up 3.6 pounds, but considering how I ate, that's not too bad. Now I'm back on track, in my normal routine. :-)

Jenny Craig: Week Thirty Four Results

I did it! I lost two pounds this week, passing my halfway point! 39.2 pounds total so far, and another 39 to go! Go Jenny go! :-)

Of course, I'm taking a week off since we're going to the East Coast to visit family, and our families LOVE food! But I can bounce back as long as I'm a little careful and don't go completely crazy :-)

Jenny Craig: Week Thirty Three Results

Woo hoo! Lost 1.4 pounds this week, and that's with cheating one day with pizza ;-) So this brings my total now to 37.2 pounds lost.

I am now 1.8 pounds away from my halfway point. Yes, when I lose a total of 39 pounds, I have yet another 39 to go to reach my goal weight. I don't mind losing it slowly...easier to keep off that way. I'm learning to eat in a more balanced way, and to not consider my intake as a diet but rather a new way of eating.

That one day of pizza can still happen in the future, but not like I used to do one day, burritos the next, then Indian food, then wings, then Taco Bell, etc. It's no wonder I used to have heartburn all the time!

This next week is all Jenny Craig (oh, and bugs on Friday...yes, a work event where we eat bugs...I'll post separately about that!), then next week we're off to Georgia and Florida where I'm sure the food will be delicious and plentiful...I'll just have to take it one day at a time.

Jenny Craig: Week Thirty Two Results

After our company picnic BBQ and tailgating at a Giant's game, I actually gained 0.4 pounds this week. I'm actually surprised it wasn't more than this considering what I ate :-)

In any case, I may be reaching my first real plateau. And with our Florida/Georgia trip coming soon, there are some challenges ahead.
