Jenny Craig Speaks My Language....CRUNCH!

Yes, I am Wonder Woman...I lost two pounds my first week on Jenny Craig!*  You can't really see anything under my graduation robe (this was my 14th high school graduation as a faculty member!) But, I am pretty pleased so far.

When I say they speak my language, I am referring to my love of eating things that CRUNCH!!  I guess I am a texture-eater...but you can see here that in my first week I got to crunch on chips, cookies, popcorn, and cereal. 

I saw this sign hanging in the local office and I agree that the food is shockingly good.  I was surprised at exactly how good it tastes....delicious diet food!  Also, I do not feel deprived...when they keep the crunch and give me an occasional treat...then I am feeling loved!

It hasn't been all taco chips and popcorn (loved the Kettle Corn)...I have struggled a little with giving up my old eating habits...OK,  there are moments I have struggled a lot.  But, it helps so much to have accountability to my consultant, Yolanda, and to see results!

Now, I am beginning a new week, so I will be back with a report next Friday!

This week ended with chocolate cheesecake...next week ends with a red velvet cupcake...with a lot of vegetables and fruit in between!

I can do this!
Happy Friday!

*I was provided a free trial program, and free Jenny’s Cuisine® items.  However, the opinions and writing are entirely my own. 
Members following the Jenny Craig program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs per week.


  1. All the very best. Blessings, Catherine

  2. Good for you, Pam! Changing habits takes *time,* so don't be too hard on yourself.

  3. Congratulations, Pam...this way of eating sounds perfect and sensible and you'll reap the benefits I'm sure...having said that I always think you look fabulous!
    Happy Weekend xx

  4. I think you are fabulous just the way you are but if you have a weight loss goal go for it! I would love to do a fashion illustration of you at any time during your weight loss journey - the timing is up to you. Pick an outfit you feel great in and send me a pic!

  5. Good Morning Pamela, Congratulations on losing 2lbs.... isn't it a fabulous feeling. I have heard of Jenny Craig as she advertises here in England.
    Chocolate Cheesecake sounds a wonderful way to end a week.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Best Wishes

  6. Congratulations!! You bet you can do this!

  7. Pam I am a crunch person as well. Somehow eating cartons of yogurt just doesn't do it for me!!
    Bravo and keep up the good work!
