Day 26 On Jenny!

Happy Saturday, and Shabbat Shalom!

I am very happy to report that this has been another great week on Jenny. I am in my fourth week on their plan, and it is going so well. It is really set up in an easy way, and it takes a lot of the mental work out of it. As long as you follow what the plan tells you to eat, it is smooth sailing.

Apparently, after this week, I begin planning my own week of meals - they teach me how to build a week, making sure to fit in all of my entrees, fruits, vegetables, snacks, and dairy products. We shall see how that goes on Tuesday, my next weigh-in.

I wonder if I will clear the 10 pound milemarker this week - wouldn't that be amazing! Even if I don't get quite to that point, I am still feeling such a sense of accomplishment - after all these years of weight gain and physical pain, I am feeling GOOD!

By the way, my old high school friend, Julie, at Flip this Body, wondered if I have been exercising at all, in addition to the meal plan. I have definitely been trying! I bought a pedometer, and it appears that I am walking at least 2 miles everyday! Also, I really like the "Exercise TV" channel that you can find On Demand - there are lots of fun options. As my body continues to heal, and as my muscles get stronger and stronger, I am capable of doing more. Currently, I am sticking with some of the "walking" workouts, because I still can't handle a lot of impact (and I am really starting from scratch, in a cardio-vascular sense).

Yay for success!!

Congratulations! When I did JC, I was so thrilled by the way my consultant really tried to get to know me, and shared with me everything that she thought would help me. It was really tough, and ultimately it was not the right plan for me, but I am so happy for you! Way to stick with it. Keep us posted!

I'm so glad the program is working out for you. And thanks for the shout out! :-) I also use ExerciseTV on Comcast OnDemand -- I've even reviewed some of their programs on my blog if you're interested. Lately I've been doing the Jillian Michaels 30-day Shred, which is kicking my ASS -- though I'm not exactly doing it 30-days in a row like she suggests; more like every other day, or every 3rd day, because SERIOUSLY it's exhausting, and as soon as I'm done I always want to go right to bed. But I'm going to keep at it because I really am starting to see results.
