Alright, so I'm clearly at a plateau... brought on for a few reasons... some are within my control and some are not.
I reached a point in Jenny Craig where they lowered my calories down to 1200 a day from 1500 a day. It's just a few pieces of fruit but Jesus, I miss those pieces of fruit. I just feel like I need more food so I find myself taking bites of things that don't belong in my program. I want to eat! My weight actually went up 1/2 a lb. this week and I will tell you that THERE IS NO WAY I ATE ENOUGH TO GAIN WEIGHT. I'm guessing it's water or something from too much salt and soda so I'm at this place where I need to step it up a notch. I mean, if I plan on losing more weight I simply have to eat less than I'm eating now and what I'm eating now doesn't feel like a lot.
I'm working out more... trying to do my 30 minute Walk It Off mp3 every day and then going to aerobics twice a week. Tonight I am going to try to not eat any snacks after I'm done with my final snack. Not one bite. Not an extra fruit or hand full of cereal. I need to kick this plateau in the balls and that's not gonna happen if I get tired and shove a hand full of cereal in my mouth... and then maybe another.
It's frustrating. I hate paying money to not lose weight. I hate eating veggies, I'm not a fan. The veggies I like are technically starches and I love them covered in butter. That's just the truth. I have to deal with it. I'm hoping that if I write about this plateau I can move beyond it. I've lost weight before. I know that I can either give up and put back on the 22lbs I've lost, or I can get mad and suck it up and push through. I'm going to suck it up and push through.

I really didn't think I was going to lose any weight this week. That scale refused to move all week long so yesterday I drank a TON of water and at today's weigh in I had lost 2.5 lbs for a grand total of 22.5 lbs. I was kinda shocked that I had dropped 2.5 lbs. I didn't know why the scale wasn't moving but it just wasn't moving... thank God it finally moved.
I saw on the Today show last week that Consumer Reports rated Jenny Craig as the best weight loss plan out there right now. I think they were saying that it's the most effective. I think that any plan is effective if you stick to it, and that just means that for whatever reason, people seem to find Jenny Craig easier to stick to. Right now, for me, that would be true.
