All you can eat

Duplo Family restaurant
In the comedy programme "Peep Show" one scene features a conversation on eat as much as you like restaurants. Toni turned to Mark and said that "it's eat as much as you'd like. There's no competitive element involved."


So when eating at the "All you can eat buffet" this weekend, rather than see it as a challenge I tried not to over eat and instead piled my plate with salad and veg. I ordered diet Coke, but then went and sat in my husband's seat and accidentally drank his full fat one! The intention was there at least.
I was really pleased this week when I weighed myself and had lost a kilo thanks to the Jenny Craig diet plan.. This week is full of lovely currys so I am sure I will be fine. I had a chat with a consultant on Wednesday. She didn't seem very interested in my weight loss, but more interested in analysing my eating habits. I suppose that it isn't intended as a diet but as a lifestyle change so really it is about recognising the way you eat and changing for the better. I forgot to ask about eating out, so called their help line. The lady there was really helpful. She even went off to speak to a lady whose husband worked in Legoland to recommend the best place to eat. She advised to eat the Jenny Craig plan for the rest of the day and just substute dinner. I also enquiried about the transition into cooking your own food. She advised that once people have got to half of their goal weight, then they work together with their consultant at substituting meals for ones of their own.

Next week I am hoping to have my laptop back, so will post some pictures of the Jenny Craig food, so you can see just how much you get to eat in a day (and I am on the lowest calorie plan! It's worked out from your weight at the start and what you need to loose.)

I'm hoping that some more weight will come off this week, but I am pleased to say I am already needing a belt with some of my jeans. In the mean time please check out my fellow blogging friends on their weight loss in a linky set up by Life in a break down.

  2. Great result - I'm in the final week of a month trial of JC now and looking forward to see if I can keep the portion sizes correct afterwards!
