Yesterday, with my family's encouragement, I joined Jenny Craig. I had a procedure on my knee last may and since then have been trying to get in shape. I have been eating more healthily, doing water exercise for two hours two days a week and so on. I have increased energy, better balance. However, I have lost not a pound, and I am severely overweight (not gaining, gained two times in my life a great deal quickly and then its just sat there)
I was hesitant because of the cost. My daughter has volunteered to pay to start. I think I am going to be happy with the program and it will help a lot. However, I am going to have to learn to meals on my own, because the food averages 100.00 a week for one person, not including fruits, veggies and dairy products. That's twice my normal budget.
Overall though it seems like it will really help me. There seems to be a lot of food, I wont go hungry. Most of the food is healthy food (non saccharine, non artificial ingredients).
My goal is ten pounds a month until I get to fifty pounds. Then we'll re-asess my goals.
May not be frugal, but an investment in my health.
