    You guys are adorable!!!! Great Job ! So inspiring.
  4. Transformations

    Jenny Craig has changed my life! I am not plugging or advertising for them, but I honestly do not think I could have gotten to where I am today without them! Winning that membership was one of the best things that has happened to me. I have attached some transformation photos to show you the physical changes for myself and my husband. While the physical changes are great, the emotional changes have been the best! I have 62.8 pounds to go until I am at goal, but I am final happy with myself and I am eternally grateful to Dress Barn and my Jenny center for this opportunity. My ultimate goal is to win the Half of Me contest that Jenny offers, to show others like me that Jenny works. To motivate and encourage others, to help them see that they can do it to, if they just believe. If at any time you are struggling and need someone to talk to, I will listen email me at: thensley28@gmail.com. Sometimes, all it takes is having someone to talk to and someone that will listen. I will be here for anyone that needs it. We've got this!

  6. Plastic Surgery

    Awesome! I'm happy for you and your choice to do what makes you feel better. Me? I'm leery of any type of surgery. I was in and out of hospitals during my childhood for various reasons and not too keen on going into surgery again. But! My dream has always been to remove the inside hanging skin on my thighs. I thought about liposuction - apparently, there are various other ways to do this. Exercise has been helping, and lots of lots of moisturizers. But age will never help, being I'm closer to 60 than 50 now.
  7. Benefits of Frozen Fruit & Veggies

    Think fresh is always better for you? Think again! With the rise of microwave dinners in the 1950s to the ready-made, grab-and-go lifestyle of today, frozen food has become a staple in the kitchen for quick dinners and side dishes during a busy week. Fresh vs. frozen The main question between fresh and frozen comes from the common argument that “fresh is best” not just for taste, but for nutritional value. This has been debunked, thanks to a study conducted by Dr. Ali Bouzari at the University of California, Davis, where his team evaluated the vitamin content between frozen and fresh foods such as carrots, broccoli, strawberries and more. Dr. Bouzari and his team found no significant differences between fresh and frozen, and noted that the amount of fiber and minerals like zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium stayed the same. And while more studies need to be conducted, Dr. Bouzari noted that his studies showed frozen broccoli had more riboflavin and frozen blueberries had more vitamin C! Some of this comes down to how their fresh counterparts sit on the shelf (berries tend to be most potent when freshly picked, but when sitting on the shelf lose nutrients quickly), so it comes down to a matter of timing and how the food has been frozen—and when. Double-check your labels You’ll also want to be mindful about the freezing process. Frozen fruit and veggies are typically picked at their peak, and flash frozen, or individually quick frozen, to preserve their freshness. This process also helps to avoid those pesky ice crystals that form when your freezer fluctuates in temperature (again, be mindful of how active your freezer is!). At Jenny Craig, we work with over 40 professional chefs who demand quality ingredients, meaning they are able to capture the fresh tastes you love in a convenient, ready-for-you meal whenever you need it. We also encourage our members to add Fresh & Free Additions, an assortment of non-starchy vegetables, so that they can explore the fresh tastes of the season that can perfectly complement their meal, too! For more information about our over 100 delicious frozen and pantry ready options, and to learn more about Jenny Craig, call us at 866-706-4042 or find a local neighborhood Jenny Craig center near you.

  12. How to Lose Holiday Weight Gain

    The holidays are full of food, and it can feel like you have to pile your plate high to help your host (or yourself) with leftovers! However holidays can go on for days, and before you know it, you’ve gained some holiday weight. If you have put on a bit of weight after the holidays, that’s okay! Here are some holiday weight loss tips to act as your guide for how to lose holiday weight gain. Move more. Now is the time to move a bit more, and take advantage of the chilly weather wherever you are. A brisk walk during your break allows you to feel refreshed. If you’re in an area with snow, make a snowman with your kids or spend some time shoveling your driveway. You can also make small changes in your movement opportunities, like parking farther away from the grocery store or taking the stairs instead of the escalator. When you find small opportunities throughout the day to move, you are moving one step closer to holiday weight loss. Don’t skip meals. You may think that the extra calories you ate during the holidays can be diminished by skipping a meal, but that sets you up for failure. Since you’re denying your body food, you’ll lose energy and potentially binge on treats or make rash decisions about your next meal. Cook at home. Oftentimes, the meals we get at restaurants are much larger portions, and are often cooked in fattier preparations. Take vegetable side dishes, which are typically sautéed in butter. When you cook at home, you control everything—from the ingredients to the oil to the cooking method, it’s all in your hands to make the healthiest choices possible. Control your portions. Portion control may have gone out the window when the holidays were around, but it needs to come back into play to reverse holiday weight gain. One way to retrain yourself in regards to portions is to use a smaller plate so that you can focus on portioning out your meal. Be picky about what’s on your plate. You don’t have to eat every side with every meal. Fill your plate with protein and vegetables first to ensure you’re filling up on nutrient-dense options that will help you stay fuller longer, then go for the sides that are more calorie-dense, like dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc. Have snacks on hand. You may have gotten used to that stuffed feeling, but now that you’re focusing on healthier options and portion control, you may get hungry sooner. This is why it’s a great idea to have snacks on hand to encourage positive decision-making versus going to the vending machine or being lured by the leftover candy in the break room. Keep some veggie sticks on hand to pair with Classic Hummus & Wheat Crackers, and look for pre-portioned snack bags like our Ranch Snaps and Cheddar Cheese Crisps that allow you to satisfy your snack craving without going overboard. Holiday weight loss is possible, especially when you have a strong sense of motivation. And if you’re looking for support and other pieces of advice for weight loss, look no further than Jenny Craig—our Perfect Portion blog considers everything from inspiration to strategies to help you find success, and you can join your local neighborhood Jenny Craig center to talk with a Jenny Craig consultant and create personalized strategies for weight loss throughout the year!

  13. Plastic Surgery

    I have always wondered about the excess skin and if it will be able to tighten back up. Since I was nearly 300 pounds I am scared that I am just going to look like a package of hamburger. Ugh. Also, I had an emergency c-section with my son 10+ years ago and my muscle was cut in half and I still cannot feel my lower stomach, so I am worried that I will always have this section of flab hanging down. After being over weight for my entire life, I am afraid to lose weight, only to become more self conscious than I started out. So stressful. My biggest fear is that skin removal, will leave me scarred and ugly and I want to feel good about myself. You'll have to share once you have your surgery and let us know if it made you feel better about yourself. I look forward to reading more. Good luck Miss Bumble!

  15. Notoriously Sugary Foods and What to Eat Instead

    By Monica Ropar, Jenny Craig Corporate Nutritionist Lately, there has been a lot of not so sweet news that despite years of knowing sugar isn’t healthy, people are consuming more and more of it. The typical American diet is loaded with excessive amounts of added sugars and you can find them in just about anything on the grocery store shelves. On the road to healthy eating habits, one notable indulgence to drop is eating empty calorie foods, which are foods typically very high in sugar and lacking nutritional value, such as sweetened drinks, donuts, candies and more. When consumed in excess, empty calories can be attributed to weight gain. There are two types of sugars, naturally occurring or added sugars. Naturally occurring sugars can be found in fruits and milks, while added sugars are found in packaged foods and are one of the biggest culprits of empty calories. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans advised limiting added sugars to less than 10% of total calories. The good news is that the Jenny Craig Menu has been designed to align to this limit so if you are following any of our planned menus, you can feel rest assured that you are not consuming too many added sugars. Here are some of the most common sugary items to avoid and our suggestions for what you can easily add to your meal plan and not your waistline. Avoid These: Cereals & Sweetened Yogurts Despite sounding healthy, many cereals, flavored instant oatmeal, breakfast bars and flavored yogurts can contain as much sugar as a cookie. We all know that starting the day off with a sugary breakfast does not provide us with the fuel our bodies need and crave to have a healthy day. Enjoy These: Unsweetened versions of cereals, oatmeal and yogurt. Sweeten them with a dash of honey, or best yet, fresh fruit and spices. You’d be surprised how delicious a diced apple sprinkled with cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom pairs with plain yogurt or oatmeal. Avoid These: Energy Bars If you’re not making an educated selection, you could just be eating a ‘glorified’ candy bar. Some options on the market can contain as many calories and added sugars as a typical candy bar, but they are marketed as ‘healthy’ claiming they can ‘give you energy’. Don’t be fooled because they contain healthy ingredients like oats, nuts and grains. You must look at all of the added ingredients. Enjoy These: Get natural energy from whole foods. Healthy fats, whole grains, proteins and fruits make great snacks. Eat snacks like string cheese and a fruit; or a piece of whole-grain toast with mashed avocado. You can also make deviled eggs out of one hard-boiled egg and use a little mashed avocado or Dijon mustard with the yolk instead of mayonnaise. Top it with smoked paprika for a satisfying snack. If you’re on our program, Jenny Craig Anytime Bars contain less than half the amount of sugar and calories compared to some popular energy or protein bars. Avoid These: Specialty coffee drinks & Smoothies If you want to reduce your sugar intake, your morning routine is the first place to start. Many specialty dessert-sounding coffee drinks can contain as much sugar as a slice of cake or a bowl of ice cream. Enjoy These: Create a specialty drink yourself! Pre-make flavored ice by throwing cooled coffee into ice cube trays. Combine 3-4 coffee ice cubes into a blender with a half-frozen banana, one scoop of protein powder (experiment with assorted flavors, my favorite is salted caramel) and about a ½ cup milk or plain yogurt. If using alternative milks, such as almond milk, be sure to use unsweetened versions. Make it more decadent by adding a teaspoon of cacao powder or instant espresso powder. If you want more of a fruit flavor, just replace the banana with 1 cup of frozen fruit of your choice, protein powder, milk and ice. Top it off with a splash of coconut water and blend. Just be sure to measure the fruit since typical fruit smoothies can contain over the recommended 2 fruit servings a day. Remember, 1 cup fresh/frozen fruit counts as 1 fruit choice. Even quicker: Our Ready-to-Drink Shakes. They contain perfectly portable protein, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals and nearly half the amount of sugar and calories of a typical shake or smoothie. Avoid These: Cookies, Cakes & Candies This seems like a no-brainer, however the food industry has gotten smart and has tried to market many of these sugar-laden treats as healthy by using terms like ‘gluten free’ or ‘all-natural’. Enjoy These: Enjoy a single-serving of sugar-free pudding or a small piece of angel food cake with fruit coulis. Make your own fruit coulis sauce by blending 1 ½ cups unsweetened fruit of your choice, ½ tsp orange liqueur (or orange juice) and a pinch of sugar substitute. Store for up to a week in the fridge and use as a topping for pancakes, plain yogurt or anything you want to make a little sweeter. Jenny Craig’s Breakfast Syrup is a sweet topping alternative to get your pancake or waffle fix. Avoid This: Sugar-sweetened beverages It’s not just regular soda. Sugar-sweetened bottled ice teas, sports drinks and even the now popular coconut waters can contain an entire days’ worth of sugar. Enjoy These: Reach for seltzer with a splash of no-sugar added juice. Try infusing your own water by adding cucumber and crushed mint, lemon and chopped basil, and slices of mixed citrus. Avoid This: Margaritas & mimosas Margaritas and mimosas—typical happy hour and brunch drinks. Many of these drinks include sugary-mixes on top of the empty calories that alcohol already provides. Enjoy This: Order a ‘skinny’ margarita that is made with just tequila, fresh lime juice, soda water and a splash of agave or fresh orange juice. If you like it spicy ask for a jalapeño-infused one, which will make you sip it even more slowly. Avoid pre-mixed mimosas, which are typically half champagne and half orange juice. Ask for plain champagne or a wine spritzer with a small glass of fruit juice on the side so you can control how much juice you add. A tablespoon should be enough and top it off with ice if you like it very chilled. Be smart about your beverage selections and always consume in moderation. Cheers! You don’t have to eliminate sweets entirely, but see where you can cut down or cut out sweetness in your day. If you can get down to 1 or 2 items daily, you’re on the right path!

  16. 5 Simple Ways to Exercise at Work

    Getting moving during your work day can is a good way to help renew your focus and get your heart pumping! However, if you’re like 80% of the working population, your job is sedentary or requires only very light activity,1 so you know firsthand how difficult it is to get quality physical activity during the workday. What you may not realize is that a lack of movement during work marks a dramatic, and very recent, change in our behavior. As recently as fifty years ago, nearly 50% of jobs were physically demanding, requiring an additional 120-140 calories per day in physical activity.1 While that might not seem like much, it’s nearly enough to account for the steady weight gain that has America has seen since 1960.1 So the question becomes, how can we add in physical activity during our day—without disrupting the workflow or heading out to the gym and working up a sweat? This is where NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) comes into play. NEAT is, essentially, calories burned outside of eating, sleeping, or sports-like exercises.2 This includes simple tasks like walking, typing, performing yard work, taking out the garbage, and even fidgeting. These types of activities, if performed consciously throughout an otherwise sedentary day, can accumulate an impressive calorie burn, with some researchers estimating it’s possible to burn an additional 350 calories each day.3 In fact, recent research from the American Council on Exercise shows that “low-intensity movement interruptions are an effective means of combating sedentary behavior...[impacting] dramatic swings in HDL, triglycerides, and blood glucose.”According to ACE, significant health benefits can be seen by simply getting up once per hour and moving for five minutes, or getting up every two hours and moving for ten minutes.4 The types of activities they suggest include standing, walking and folding laundry. In other words, low-intensity and easy-to-perform activities can be simply weaved into your day. Use the following strategies to add more movement into your workday, and you could reap significant health benefits, without breaking a sweat. 1. Park in the back of the parking lot You know that one parking spot that’s way in the back of the parking lot? The one that’s always open because nobody wants to park that far from the door? Consider this spot reserved for you and all the extra steps it will allow you to get in over the next days, weeks, and months. 2. Take planned movement breaks at work There’s an unlimited number of ways to do this, but here’s a few ideas to get you started. First, instead of keeping a large water bottle at your desk, use a regular sized glass. Then set an alarm on your phone to go off every 30-60 minutes to remind you to head to the kitchen and fill it up. Second, only use the bathroom furthest from your desk. Third, go to your co-workers desk and have a conversation instead of emailing them. With just these three ideas you’ll be able to easily get extra steps—multiple times per day. Bonus points if the bathroom and/or water cooler are up or down a flight of steps. 3. Have walking (or standing) meetings If it works for everyone in the meeting, consider heading outside for a breath of fresh air while you work through the agenda. If the weather isn’t agreeable, you can also walk through the hallways. If you have to be confined to one room for a meeting, consider standing for all or part of the meeting. 4. Take a walking lunch. If there’s a park you can walk to, grab your lunch and head over there for a quick picnic. Alternatively, just getting outside after lunch and “stretching your legs” for a few minutes can make a bigger impact than you think. Buddy up with a friend to make it more fun and to add some accountability. 5. Get a standing desk. As more companies see the health and wellness benefits, standing desks are becoming more commonplace in workplaces across the country. Put in a request with your company. You might be surprised at how they respond. 1. https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/05/25/less-active-at-work-americans-have-packed-on-pounds/ 2. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12468415 3. https://www.acefitness.org/education-and-resources/lifestyle/blog/3757/the-n-e-a-t-way-to-exercise 4. https://www.acefitness.org/education-and-resources/professional/certified/december-2017/6825/ace-sponsored-research-what-is-the-optimal-fit-to-reduce-sedentary-behavior-to-improve
  17. Plastic Surgery

    U[date - went to another dr consult. And I liked the Dr a lot better. Recommended form my mom's cancer doctor and he does a ton of reconstruction. He was more realistic - and concentrated mainly on Breasts for me. Said the full bottom half lift or thigh lift - wont necessarily fix some of the extra skin. As Christy alluded to.. So the cost was also a TON Lower. Expensive - yes, but 33 % less expensive than the first doctor. So I have almost said Yes - I have gone for the preop dr clearence. Tomorrow I get a Mammogram and Xray... and then I guess juts say yes and do this. I may get one more consult.. but maybe enough is enough - trust my gut, trust my Mom's cancer doctor and he trusts this guy. Oh **** I may just do it. Next on to pick out a size.... (Smalll -for the record)
  18. We know choosing the right weight loss program is hard. We also understand not all plans are created equal—some focus solely on food, such as eliminating food groups or focusing on calories, while others emphasize finding activities, such as physical activity or meetings to hone in on other aspects of well-being. Jenny Craig offers a more complete, personalized plan to fit your unique needs with the dedicated support of a consultant and delicious food. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all cleanse or crash diet filled with dehydrated food. Before learning more about Jenny Craig, you may have heard of another program that focuses on using real food in a similar manner: Nutrisystem. Let’s learn about both programs, and find out what the key differences are between both companies. Nurtrisystem Nutrisystem does not focus on counting calories or eliminating carbs—instead, it also focuses on offering high-fiber, lean protein food options to help fuel your body for the day’s activities. All of their menu items also contain no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors, as well as zero trans fat. Nutrisystem offers various 4-week plans, where you’ll eat 4-5 times a day. During your first week on Nutrisystem, you’ll eat 6 times a day. You’ll eat meals, bars and shakes from the program’s Turbo Takeoff box. Your second week, you’ll continue eating Nutrisystem foods while incorporating vegetables and fruits. You’ll also have a flex option, where you can dine out for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack, or use a Nutrisystem recipe as a flex meal. Your meal options do depend on which plan you decide to go with, so you may experience limited choices. Depending on your plan, you would log in your measurements and weight online through the website or an app, as well as receive access to dietitians and counselors. Jenny Craig Jenny Craig is built on a three-part process that focuses on giving you the support you need, delicious food you’ll love, so you get the results you want. While some weight loss programs provide food and some programs provide coaches, not many provide both. Jenny Craig is a complete program that provides everything you need to succeed. Our Consultants Every single member is provided with a consultant, who is included with every membership. It’s the key difference between Jenny Craig and other food-based programs. You meet with your consultant once a week, to do weigh-ins and discuss your plan for the week. They provide you with personalized support and skills to help you develop healthier habits and a healthy relationship with food. The menu is a guide to help you easily make the right choices each day. Our weight loss consultants have gone through rigorous training, which focuses on active listening, motivation-based counseling, and education on nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral strategies for weight loss and lifestyle change. This education is essential for equipping Jenny Craig members with information so it can help sustain their healthy lifestyle. Our Menu The second part of our program is our food. We offer delicious food, so there is no chopping, meal prep or measuring required so you can make healthy choices easily. The food is crafted by chefs and nutritionists for superior taste in flavors you’ll love, like Chicken Fettucine, Margherita Pizza, and Beef Merlot. And then there’s dessert—yes, dessert!—with options like Chocolate Lava Cake, Apple Crisp and Triple Chocolate Cheesecake! Our consultants create a menu featuring items that you will love to enjoy six times a day. The menu also includes fruits and vegetables for variety from our Fresh & Free Additions list. This includes non-starchy, high-fiber fruits and vegetables that can help you stay fuller longer. How the Jenny Craig program works The details: You get to eat often—six times per day. Three meals and two snacks are included in our delicious menu , and you supply one healthy snack. No food groups are eliminated. The name of the game here is a balance of carbs, protein and fat. You also add in fresh vegetables, side salads, fruits and dairy for additional balance. No calorie counting! No counting of calories or macro tracking. The food and menus are developed by chefs and nutritionists. The goal isn't to keep you on Jenny Craig food permanently—it's a tool to help you reach your weight loss goal. You are encouraged during the weight loss part of the program to follow the plan to obtain the best results, but as you approach your goal, you are encouraged to start eating more of your own foods, or meals on your own. Your consultant will work with you on healthy meal planning and food preparation, as well as strategies for dining out and managing social situations. The goal is to develop a healthy, sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle you can live with. The Jenny Craig program is proven and recognized by top news outlets and medical journals. US News and World Report ranked Jenny Craig as a top diet overall for weight loss for 7 years and counting. The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) also backed Jenny Craig's value, citing that the program resulted in greater weight loss, compared to usual care1. The Annals of Internal Medicine also identified Jenny Craig as one of the most effective weight-loss programs2. We’re very proud of our accolades, but that’s only one part of our success. When someone is looking for recommendations regarding weight loss programs, oftentimes it’s hearing from people who have been successful on that program that brings us together. Here is one from our success story, Sloane: “Most diets give you a lot of margin for error. Measure this, count these, keep track of that, which I found put too much initial control in my hands. Knowing my meals were planned gave me the confidence and security to continue.” You can learn about other members’ success by listening to their Success Stories, or visit one of our local neighborhood Jenny Craig centers near you to find out how the amazing combination of personalized support and food can help you reach your goals.

  19. Holiday meals are a special gathering, as family and friends come together to spend time with each other. Because these meals can go for hours, they’re typically centered around a huge cut of meat and plenty of sides flavored with the holiday’s spice blends of cinnamon and nutmeg or the comfort of heavy cream and butter—and this is all before the temptations that await you at the dessert table! There are plenty of ways to lighten up your holiday table with lighter side dishes that the whole family will love—here are a few of our favorites. Roasted Fall Vegetables with Feta and Rosemary. Focusing on what’s fresh and fitting for the season is a great way to create a vibrant, colorful dish. Gather pumpkin, carrots, garlic cloves—and any other vegetable you may enjoy—and drizzle them with a touch of olive oil and rosemary. Place them in a single layer on a baking pan, then into a 200-degree oven for about 45 minutes. Top the vegetables with crumbled feta and roasted pumpkin seeds, and feast! Cinnamon Dusted Butternut Squash. Squash is a great alternative to starchy potatoes, and doesn’t need a lot of accouterment to bring out its natural sweetness. All you need to do is take a butternut squash, peel and cube it, then toss it with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and cinnamon. It will smell just like the holidays after about 30-40 minutes in a 400-degree oven! Tofu Mexican Chocolate Pudding. Looking for a protein-rich treat to enjoy with your family outside of delicious, lighter cookies? All you need is a pound of silken tofu, cinnamon, vanilla extract, honey and a half-cup of melted chocolate chips and a food processor or blender. Once you puree the mixture, transfer it to a container, seal the lid and let it chill for 30 minutes. This makes a lovely end to a meal, especially when paired with a cup of coffee or a small hot chocolate for the kids. For those following the Jenny Craig program, here are a few delicious options: Balsamic Kale and Cranberry Salad. Cranberries are a staple during the winter with their bright color and tart bite. This warm salad takes only 15 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to sauté! Begin by sautéing an onion for 3-5 minutes, then add kale, dried cranberries, water and a dash of salt to cook for another 3-6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, drizzle with some of our Jenny Craig Balsamic Vinaigrette and prepare to dig in! Curried Cauliflower. Curry powder is a beautiful spice blend that gathers coriander, cumin, ginger, dry mustard and turmeric, among other spices, to achieve its rich color. When tossed with lemon and olive oil onto cauliflower florets and roasted in a 425-degree oven for about 30 minutes, the florets will come out looking golden, just like the rich yellow of a comfortable fire. These are just a few of the healthy holiday sides we’ve come up with, and there are plenty more to be had! Discover other delicious inspirations, like this Velvety Chocolate S’Mores Shake, and healthy holiday eating tips by looking through the Perfect Portion, Jenny Craig’s blog where we like to focus on foods trends and ideas to help you stay inspired and joyful about your weight loss journey. Happy holidays, and may your festivities be filled with bright flavors that celebrate your health and happiness!

  20. ~Tricia~

    Every day I am thankful for everything that Jenny Craig has done for me. Jenny has given me a confidence that I have never had and I am 100% happy with my life and how it is going. Yes, I am in control of whether I am successful or not, but I do not think that I could have gotten this far without the support and encouragement from my Jenny consultants and the women on this forum.


    I am so incredibly thankful and grateful for each and everyone of you.
