My name is Amanda and I lost 19 pounds* with Jenny Craig. I decided to start my weight loss journey with Jenny Craig when I looked in the mirror one day and realized I was not confident, nor happy with my appearance or the way I felt on the inside. At first, I was hesitant to start Jenny Craig because I didn't know if other girls my age were doing it too.
I started my journey at 160 pounds and today I am 141 pounds. Jenny Craig taught me so many important things and having a personal consultant really kept me accountable and on track throughout the whole process. I also became close with my consultant and we are very close to this day! In the past, I never really knew about portion sizes or how much sugar or calories I was putting into my body daily. With Jenny Craig, it was all right there for me. It is easy to prepare and it's perfectly portioned for weight loss, which is so helpful!
My biggest milestone through this whole process was when I realized how many people told me that I looked great. And I realized the difference when I compared my before and after pictures side-by-side. I noticed how much happier I look now compared to my previous weight. Before Jenny Craig, I tried to watch what I ate and I worked out on and off, but I was never consistent. Now, I work out 5 to 6 days a week and watch my daily sugar and calorie intake!
Growing up, I was never told what to eat and what not to eat. I started drinking soda and eating fast food at an early age, which led to gaining weight over time. My lifestyle and health have improved tremendously ever since I lost weight with Jenny Craig. I have so much more energy and self-confidence. I'm not afraid to put on a little black dress and go out with my friends. Not only do I feel more secure with myself, but I also suffer from depression and having a healthy lifestyle has helped me cope with it in a better way.
My goals moving forward are to keep pursuing my healthy lifestyle and to keep motivating and inspiring people who are in the same situation I was once in. I hope to help girls my age step out of their comfort zone and to let them know they aren't alone. Jenny Craig is for all ages and genders. It's great for anyone who is stuck in a rut and can't seem to get out of it on their own. My biggest piece of advice for anyone looking to lose weight is that everyone starts somewhere!
