Mixed Feelings

Friday, January 18, 2013

Okay just had my second Jenny Craig counselling session. I'm not sure what I make of it tbh. I have left the whole thing feeling awkward even though we ended all friendly friendly.

You see I wasn't 100% with the plan and the lady didn't like that, but I cannot always be 100% - I wish I could but 100% just isn't going to cut it. I visit my mother once a week on average and we eat out or she cooks - that is the way it is. And yes sometimes we do go out with friends and I can make good choices but it can be hard and I will not be pushed beyond what makes me comfortable as I will not stick to a healthy eating plan that has no naughties or occasional greasy pleasures.

Hmm, I suppose what I found odd about the whole conversation is that this week I lost 2.25 lbs but did she focus on the positive, no, she instantly jumped on the negative without even mentioning my loss. A nice well done would have been in the offing.

Maybe she's hit a sensitive spot and I'm just not liking it. I don't know. Will give her another go next week but so far I'm not finding the counselling to be counselling, more like telling me how to suck eggs. A counsellor would have asked "why did you choose to eat that" not "couldn't you have gone to a restaurant that didn't serve food with a ton of at" (roughly her words).

Part of the issue is that I did not get my diet plans in with my boxes and they arrived several days later so yes, I have not been following them with this box as I'm out of sync already but on my next delivery (assuming they are enclosed with the box!!!!) then I shall follow it down to the individual packs. Not my fault they got my delivery wrong :p

Right enough ranting. I'm doing okay with my weight loss as far as I am concerned. Doing okay with my plan and I am liking the Jenny Craig food even if that is all I am liking right now - I can always forego the counselling and just get on with it using Sparkpeople.

    I am sorry our meets are not going well. You can do this.

    Maybe you could ask for a different counselor? It sounds like this one has a bad attitude!

    If you like the food, maybe you should cut back the meetings with her. The point is to be healthy and HAPPY! If you see her once a month or two, someone is apt to ask questions and then you maybe able to explain the negative is not very motivational to you. Just a thought. Have a happy, healthy, beautiful and fun weekend!
