I can’t believe that I completely forgot to share news of my weigh-in on Friday.
It was my first weigh-in with Jenny in a long time. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been hopping on and off my scale for weeks, but this is the first official weigh-in I’d had in a month.
You’re going to be surprised to hear this…. but I weighed in, and my weight loss was:
+/- 0.0 lbs and I was THRILLED
The shocking part is not my weight loss, but my satisfaction with it! Considering all the sausage balls, white pizza, and biscuits and gravy I ate in Ohio, I really expected a gain. To completely maintain was a WIN! To me, it’s a lesson about the holidays. Recovery is possible.
Now, this doesn’t mean that I’ll go into Christmas planning to eat everything in sight. I’ll definitely need some strategies in place to make me successful (i.e. plans for snacks, choosing good foods when we eat out, lots of salad, etc.) Just the same, I feel great knowing that one weekend doesn’t define me.
I also had a pretty big decision to make about my weight loss next steps. I celebrated my year with Jenny a few weeks ago, and it was time to decide. To continue or not to continue on the program…
While I buy food from Jenny, I don’t really do consultations and I don’t use their Body Media tool. I rarely use their online tools. I honestly thought about quitting the program and finishing up the last 20 lbs on my own. I’ve been eating more and more food on my own and have even started adding in some Lean Cuisines.
I’ll be honest with you guys… if Jenny still had the Cinnamon Rolls on their menus, I wouldn’t have even hesitated for a moment. I weighed the pros and cons… I even thought about switching over to Weight Watchers for the last 20.
In the end, I made the decision to renew my Jenny Craig membership. Overall, I really want to take this program to the end, and Jenny’s been good to me and good for me.

I’ve really kicked up my commitment to fitness, which I think is going to make a big difference. My commitment to 3 workouts (at least) each week will contribute greatly. I’ll also plan to eat about 50% JC and 50% real world eating for the next few months.
I’m signed up for the next year, and goal is in sight. Hoping for a loss this week!!! Stay tuned!
