But if you have a lot of weight to lose, it usually runs around $300-$400 for a full membership that runs a year and then about $50 a year renewal (plus the cost of food).
Go in and talk to someone (just don't let them talk you into anything - go home and make a decision or come back here and tell us what you've learned, your goals, etc. and see if we can help).
JC is a FANTASTIC program (and I've been on virtually ALL of them) but this is the only one I was on where I not only lost the weight but I've learned how to eat so that I've been able to KEEP IT OFF!!!!
Hope you'll let us know how things are going and if there's anyway we can help.
SW - 177.6
Goal! - 132
Returning Weight - 143
CW - GOAL AGAIN!!!

Drop into a Jenny center and just talk to the consultant, see what you can work out, maybe you can go on Jenny for your breakfast and lunch and then do dinner on your own after the first few weeks of structured meals.
I look at the cost like this.....
I have lowered my cholesterol by a BUNCH, my asthma is under control so much better, I can walk up two flights of stairs without haveing breathing issues AND I don't have to buy my clothes at Lane Bryant or Torrid anymore. While the last comment may seem a bit odd let me tell you that shirts at either one of those places start at $34.95 each, and jeans.....$59.99-79.99! To be able to go into walmart or macy's and buy stuff off the rack (clearance or sale) is a blessing.
I have a lot of weight left to go, but I will do without a lot of things before I give up my Jenny food until I am able to control what I eat.
Let us know what you decied to do, we are all here to get through this together!

I used to cringe at the price but now I realize it's a great investment in me and ultimately probably cheaper than all the mid-week grocery store trips and twice daily Iced Capps. Plus the food is fantastic!

So here is my question, is there a list for the cost of each food item? If so, where? I think members should have all of the information they need to make educated decisions about the nutrition and cost of their food selections.
Thanks, and I look forward to your responses.

As others have said, it is an investment in yourself. The best thing you can do is to join when they have a promo to offset the $400 yearly fee.

I agree with Battkatt and cannot wait to stop shopping at Lane Bryant and be able to go back to shopping at Target for my clothes, or be able to go into any store I want adn try on regular size clothes and have them fit.
Yes! This is my biggest thing! I was tired of shopping at Plus size stores. Now I buy my clothes at stores like Target and refuse to shop at a plus size store now! For years I wore maternity and wasn't even pregnant.

My husband and I average around $150 a week for JC food...but often we buy extras that you don't have to (such as you can do your own syrup and dressing as opposed to buying JC stuff...just ask your JC counselor what you need to buy to substitute). Take daily vitamins and you don't need their "Anytime" bars and that is another way to save. That is what hubby and I do. You could probably get by on $120-$130 per week plus the cost of veggies, fruits and dairy. The cost of fruits, veggies and dairy will depend on your own ability for power shopping. If you are a bargain hound, you could likely get what you need for super cheap.
Wait for the $20lbs for $20 deal (many times they offer it near the end of the year for New Year's resolutions peoples). Like Phyllis said earlier, they will often let you keep repeating that deal. They want your money for the food stuffs so it's in their best interest to let you keep doing that deal.
without proper preparation and a positive attitude.
