My Story



I'm not sure what made me type in "Jenny Craig" on my phone, one night, a few weeks ago.It seems that I have been yo-yo dieting for the last six years. Up 20 lbs, down 25, up 30 again. 


Like many of you, I've given many diets and workout programs a go. Paleo, Whole30, keto, vegan, myfitnesspal, crossfit etc. I seem to be really good at losing 20 pounds, but its past that mark where I usually fall off the wagon. When I started Jenny two weeks ago, I weighed 220lbs. The highest I've ever weighed. My goal weight is 140lbs. 


I feel like I don't look like myself. I feel physically big. I don't like taking pictures. Working out is not fun anymore. I live in yoga pants and sweat shirts. I don't like being naked. I want to be thin again and I need help. I needed to do something different. 


I'm a super busy professional with no time to meal prep or plan. Worse, if I was counting calories, I'd feel overwhelmed. Tracking food is a part time job, plus I get obsessive about it. Worse, I try to break the rules. 


I needed a meal plan where I just buy the food and eat it. 


So far Jenny has been AWESOME. What I love is honestly the food. I don't feel hungry, except sometimes in the evenings. Its tasty. I honestly cannot complain and this is coming from someone who thought they'd HATE prepackaged foods. 


In 2 weeks, I am down...drum roll please...7.4 pounds!!!! crazy. I feel great. 


Thanks Jenny!

WhooHoo! CONGRATULATIONS on the weight loss, Jenna!


I am an IT professional so I understand the busy life completely. Not only do I work full time, but I go to school as well. Because of my hectic life, the pre-prepared meals are the only things that will work for me. This is my second, or third, experience with Jenny Craig. The first time I was really successful, although I didn't see it through. However, this time I plan to see it to the end. This is a marathon for me, not a sprint. I also fill my head with positive thoughts. Stay positive. Tell yourself you are beautiful. Tell yourself that you are physically shrinking. Tell yourself how good you're going to look in a picture. Tell yourself you are going to be healthy.


Time to get back to the books. Keep up the great work! 


God bless!

Congratulations on your weight loss so far! This is my second go around on Jenny. I love the convenience also and think the food is great even though the portions are small. My life is super busy too. Like you I have been on every plan imaginable. Here is hoping that this time around it clicks for the both of us!

Good luck.
