To Quit or Not To Quit...

To quit Jenny Craig or to NOT quit has been my question for the past couple of weeks now. It's a really good program. The food is wonderful. Expensive but very tasty. The weekly weigh-in and chat with a councellor (Natalie ROCKS!) do help keep me on track. My problem is two-fold. I'm just not that motivated to lose right now and I'm so broke, I can't even pay attention!!! ***(insert groan or knee slap here! Your choice.)*** My 17 yr old cat Rascal got sick at the beginning of the month. Stage 2 Kidney disease. I can barely afford his "therapy" food ($2 a day) and the Jenny Cuisine ($15 a day and thats economizing the program) for me.

This past week I decided to try and do more vegetarian fare on my own. How many fat Vegan's do you know??? I made a banana bread that was wonderful. I know BB is high in fat and calories but I substituted ground flax seed for the eggs and apple sauce for the oil. It was better than I thought it was going to be. Last night, I cut up a ton of fruits and veggies, made potato soup and I'm even thinking of starting to juice again.

The weather the past couple of weeks has been beautiful. In the 60's. So beautiful that I have been taking walks on my lunch hour. My phone has a music player and head phones and I walk around the office complex singing my fool head off. Thank goodness the windows don't open and others can't hear me singing!! Ears would bleed.

I know that whatever I decide, I can count on my friends and family to support me in my efforts to lose weight. I am so thankful to have such a good support system. Now if I could just keep the chocolate from jumping in my shopping cart...
