What I've learnt

Thursday, April 26, 2012

From doing one week of the Jenny Craig programme:

- my portion size was wrong . . . Too big
- even though I've been eating good clean food, I've been eating too much, and too much of anything is bad
- my snacks have been too big
- I drink too much wine
- I don't drink enough water
- I eat too much when I'm out socially
- I'm exercising really well!

I didn't lose any weight after one week, but I still haven't quite gotten my head around the getting weighed with your clothes on thing. I did have 4 social outings last week and this does stuff up my eating patterns!

Love it when you learn stuff! I think this programme is going to really help me get a hold of proper portion sizes.

    Ok, so tonight I had drinks after work and snacks. Being the boss, I provided both. I selected baked not fried crackers, sweet potato hummus, carrots, a marinated feta cheese (less Cals than Brie) and unsalted roasted nuts. So I thought my selections were ok considering, and I did think about them.
    I planned on only having carrots and hummus, but no, ate some nuts and a few crackers and a couple of small cubes of feta along with one glass of wine. So tonite I'm not eating dinner, but will have a salad.
    I don't think I did too badly at the snacks, but it really is so hard, and especially at that time of night (just got home and it's 7pm), you're hungry, having a glass of wine, chatting . . . So you pick!

    Yes - it is all a learning process. I like you realized that my portion size was all wrong. That alone has had a major impact on my progress.
