It's the start of another week of menu planning and the beginning of a new journey for me. I am on my third day of the Jenny Craig Diet. I have to admit I've struggled with my weight for a few years now but it's never defined me. I have tried attempts at dieting the past few years and had good results with Jenny Craig...so I'm going to give it a try again because I do know how good it feels and how accomplished I feel with the results I have. I have the challenge now of having to build a new menu planning around my new journey and allowing my husband to have a fullfilling meal plan also so hear goes. :) The Jenny Program is structured around a set daily calorie amount and a structured menu plan personalized for you consisting of 3 meals, 3 snacks. At first it feels like all you're doing is eating but you're giving a boost to your metabolism.

Snack: Lite Lemon Fluff Pie
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 3-ounce package sugar-free lemon Jell-O
- 2 containers (6-8-ounce each) lemon yogurt
- 1 lemon (zest and juice)
- 8-ounce carton Cool Whip Lite
- Food coloring (optional)
- 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust
- Additional lemon(s) for garnish (optional)
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the Jell-O in the boiling water. Whisk in the yogurt. Zest the lemon and add to the yogurt mixture. Squeeze the juice out of the zested lemon and whisk into the mixture. Fold in the Cool Whip. Stir in a few drops of food coloring for a deeper color, if desired. Spoon mixture into pie crust. Cover and chill for at least two hours to set. (I make it the night before I want to serve it.) To serve, garnish with fresh lemon slices. Store any leftovers covered in the refrigerator.
