10/22/13 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Thursday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 22. October 2012 19:50

Today I went into Jenny Craig and met with my consultant that had helped me reach my goal weight.  Ah, this is me sighing with relief (ha, I'm a dork, I know).  She knew all of my old "triggers" that lead to plateau or weight gain.  These were some of the questions she asked me:  -Are you stressed?

-Eating mindlessly, such as when you're cooking?

-Eating too many sugar-free hard candies or mints?

-Not drinking enough water?

- Drinking too much alcohol?

-Eating too many carbs or too much sugar?

-Have you been sick lately or taking any new medication?

In the past, these were all reasons why I was not losing and it was comforting to have someone who just "knew" me.  In short, she has me focusing on a few things for the following week.  I am not to use spray butter anymore unless I'm going to count it as my fat for the day.  :(  I'm very heartbroken about this.  I am not to drink any alcohol for the next four weeks.  I am only supposed to workout three to four times a week if I'm going to eat 1200 calories.  Otherwise, if I up the exercise or even manual labor on the farm I am to eat 1600-1700 calories...this means two yogurts per day with 3-4 oz. of protein.  She thinks the largest reason I have been gaining is due to the increase in physical activity since we've moved with not enough calories.  So my body has been storing the calories it does get as fat because it is worried about when it will get it's next meal!  The best part is:  I lost .7 pounds since I was in last week!!!!!
