Well I have eaten healthy for a whole week! I started the Jenny Craig diet plan on Wednesday but had prepared myself for it but cutting out chocolate and eating more vegetables. My consultant called me on Tuesday and talked me through the weekly plan. Pretty straight forward, eat EVERYTHING on the day you choose and you can eat the food within the day in the order that you want. Once you have started a day you must finish it,but you can swop days of the week. A lot of people have asked me how the food is. They seem to want it to taste horrible, or leave me starving. I am not going to lie, they don't look like they do one the front of the packets, but they are really tasty. For example here is the pasta bolognase which looks less appealing than the packet at the top of the page.
They generally take a couple of minutes to heat up in the microwave, and thanks to being allowed a low cal hot chocolate drink I am managing fine. I might not have lost loads of weight, but I feel healthier. I am now 4 days in and I am craving the baguette that my husband kindly walked through the door with this afternoon. It's not on the plan, so I am not going to eat it. I have only deviated from the plan once by having a glass of white wine on Friday. My reasoning for this is that I have no intentions on giving up alcohol totally, so there is no point not having it now and then having it the moment the 2 week trial has finished. I hope my consultant is ok with this on Wednesday. And the best thing is I am allowed my weekly Costa as long as I use it as a milk serving and ask for it skinny!
I cheated and weighed myself this afternoon. I know I shouldn't have done this as it isn't a week of Jenny Craig and it is a different time of day. I was disappointed that I haven't lost any weight yet. I hope that on Wednesday I might be a pound lighter. If not I hope the lady at the end of the phone can encourage me to keep going.......
I am doing a 2 week trial of Jenny Craig, and have been given the food free of charge to enable me to do the review, but the opinions about it are my own.
