Day before the First Day: Starting the Jenny Craig Program
Today is Sunday and tomorrow, Monday, is the first day of my latest, and hopefully last, effort to loose weight and get down to a healthy weight and body fat percentage.
- My final goal: 190 lbs / 10% body fat
- Current: 268.25 lbs / 41.75% body fat
- Lost to date: 6.75 lbs / 1.25 % body fat
I measure my body fat using two devices and then I average the two figures The Omron Fat Loss Monitor HBF-306 and the Tanita scale, model 531 (which I don’t think they make any longer)
I joined Jenny Craig. I’ve been saying for quite a while now that I wish someone would just (a) tell me what to eat and (2) cook it for me. With my schedule, I really do not have time to do a lot of cooking or food prep. With Jenny Craig, the menu is selected for me and all the food comes in individual packages that have the right proportions. All I have to do is buy fresh fruits and canned veggies and add those to the menu.
What prompted me to “take the leap” and investigate Jenny Craig was seeing a friend who is on the program. She’s lost a lot of weight and she looks great. I talked to her a while and discovered that the amount of money she spends on food from JC is almost exactly what I now spend between groceries and eating out. So, what have I got to loose except the weight? Nothing, the way I figure it.
So, here’s to the new me. I plan on tracking my progress here on this blog. “Things to do” today: (1) clean out the pantry, and take the food there to the food bank. (2) Go grocery shopping for fresh fruits and veggies.
