How Katrina R. Lost 178 lbs.* and Became an Inspiration to Her Patients

*Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Katrina received promotional consideration.   Jenny Craig member Katrina R. was featured in PEOPLE magazine’s annual “Half their Size” issue! She shares her incredible weight loss story, as told to PEOPLE:   As an emergency medicine physicians assistant, Katrina R. typically worked long hours which left her little time to meal prep and too exhausted to frequent the gym. Instead, she would turn to food to deal with stress. After leaning down to help a patient, she fainted, and knew that it was time for her to make a change.     Knowing she could no longer let her weight affect her career and life, Katrina immediately ordered a starter kit from Jenny Craig.  The program was convenient for Katrina’s hectic schedule, as the Jenny Craig food was sent to her home. She didn’t have to meal plan or cook, and would bring her food to work.     Click here to read her story on PEOPLE.com and learn how Katrina lost 178 lbs.* and transformed her mindset with Jenny Craig.    *Members following the program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. a week.   Feeling inspired by Katrina’s story?

What Does a Typical Day on Jenny Craig Look Like? Meet Kellie V!

Ever wonder what it’s like to join Jenny Craig? Explore a day in the life of actual Jenny Craig members and read their inspiring stories as we highlight different journeys throughout the year. In their own words, they’ll share their favorite foods, activities and creative tips that help them develop healthier habits and reach their weight loss goals.   Meet Kellie, a yoga enthusiast and savvy real estate agent! She’s serious about staying on track with her healthy lifestyle, but definitely has fun with it. Kellie lost 33 lbs.† on Jenny Craig and maintains her weight loss by balancing a busy work schedule with fitness classes and eating delicious Jenny Craig meals. See how Kellie spends a typical day: 6:30 - 10:00 a.m. The best way to start the day – exercise followed by a satisfying breakfast! <br> I wake up early at 6:30 a.m. to attend my favorite yoga/fitness class at 7:15 a.m. I’ll wait until after class to have breakfast, since it’s too early in the morning for me to eat. This class always challenges me and after I’m finished, I feel more energized and alert (and I sleep much more soundly at night!).   After class, I eat my Jenny Craig breakfast with my morning coffee and an orange around 9:30. My favorites include Jenny Craig Cinnamon Rolls , Egg, Cheese, & Turkey Sausage Burrito and the New York Sesame Bagel.   10:30 - 1:00 p.m. Time for work. As a real estate agent, my work days can be very long and hectic. I’m constantly on the road and have to eat on the go, which is why Jenny Craig is perfect for me. I don’t have to plan my meals ahead of time or meal prep! With Jenny Craig, I get nutritious food that’s ready to eat in minutes and tastes delicious. Plus, there’s a large variety of menu items so I’m never bored.   1:00-2:00 p.m.  Lunchtime. I eat my lunch either at my desk or in my car while I’m traveling for work. I find the Ham & Swiss Baguette especially convenient on busy days when I have back-to-back open house showings. It’s easy to stash in my bag and eat on-the-go! 2:00 - 9:00 p.m. Healthy snacks keep me going at work! My work day during the week usually runs pretty late. To keep me going in between meals, I choose a snack or two: apples, carrot sticks, a Jenny Craig Essential Nutrition Bar or the Blue Corn Tortilla Chips ! They’re a perfectly portioned choice when I want something salty and crunchy. I also make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, tea or sparkling water. 9:30 - 10:00 p.m. Dinnertime. I usually arrive home around 9 p.m. and eat dinner shortly after. Once dinner is finished, my favorite dessert is either the Cookies & Cream Cake or the Chocolate Lava Cake. 10:30 p.m. Goodnight! I make an effort to get to bed by 10:30 p.m. to ensure I get at least eight hours of sleep. On days when I’m really tired or am able to eat dinner early, I try to tuck in earlier.   I’m so glad I could share my day with you – thanks for following along! Sweet dreams!   Feeling inspired by Kellie’s story? Book your free appointment with a Jenny Craig consultant to start your own weight loss journey today!     *Weight lost on Classic program. Results not typical. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Kellie received promotional consideration.

Jessica B. Lost 25 lbs.* and Transformed Her Outlook on Life

*Weight loss on Classic Program. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Member received promotional consideration.     I grew up being overweight. I would try various ways to lose weight, but nothing seemed to work. It was a doctor’s appointment that both scared me and made me realize that my youth did not protect me from illnesses that I thought were for much older adults. At that visit, I weighed nearly 200 lbs. and my doctor ran a battery of tests on me. After getting the test results, my doctor told me I was pre-diabetic, and if I did not get myself into a healthy weight range, I would end up having diabetes and other serious health issues. His warning hit me hard, and I knew then that I needed to lose weight for myself, my health and my future. I joined Jenny Craig, and it completely changed my life.            #wistia_chrome_25 #wistia_grid_31_wrapper .w-css-reset{font-size:14px;} #wistia_chrome_25 #wistia_grid_31_wrapper

many things about the Jenny Craig Program that worked well for me. One of my favorite things was the great-tasting food that was nutritionally balanced and served in a portion size that filled me up and still allowed me to lose weight. I did not feel deprived because I could eat six times a day and was able to have a decadent dessert or a savory snack every day as part of my daily menu. I could still enjoy my favorite foods if I ate them in the right portions. I also learned to pay attention to when and why I was eating and became more mindful of what I needed instead of using food for comfort.      Having my own weight loss consultant to meet with once a week was such a valuable part of the program. She was a constant source of support, encouragement and information which helped me successfully lose weight and form new eating habits that have allowed me to stay at a healthy weight. I also started cooking more vegetables and trying new things, so now I know how to fill up with the right foods to make meals more satisfying. I also enjoy exercising now and found that it relieves stress which helps me resist temptation. After exercise, my body craves healthy nutrients to refuel and I experience fewer cravings for unhealthy foods.      I lost 25 lbs.* on Jenny Craig and I am truly the person that I’ve always wanted to be. Losing this weight has done so much more than change my body. It has given me the initiative and drive to know that I can do anything I set my mind to. Now that I’ve gained confidence from losing the weight, I have completely transformed my outlook on food, health, and pretty much every aspect of my life. I am all around a happier person. My advice to other people who want to lose weight is to make small achievable goals that can lead to big changes in your lifestyle. Doing a little something each day, such as eating more vegetables or adding more steps in your day, brings you further away from unhealthy habits and closer to your goal of a healthier and happier you. <br> *Weight loss on Classic Program.

8 Tips to Set Realistic Goals and Crush Them in 2019

It’s officially January 2019 — the start of a new year — the beginning of endless possibilities. For many, it also marks a time to start focusing on better health, weight loss and working toward sustainable lifestyle changes (because why not start off the new year right?).    But before you declare to hit the gym every morning, or shun carbs entirely (please, don’t!), take a few minutes to set yourself up for real-life success. By setting realistic goals and creating a plan to achieve them, you’ll make 2019 one year to remember.    If you’ve set a goal for the new year — there are ways to make it happen. Here’s how:  How to Set Goals and Achieve Them If you’re thinking about setting goals for the new year, losing weight is likely at the top of your list. A survey of more than 600 Americans, conducted on behalf of Jenny Craig, found that more than half of Americans cite the desire to improve their overall health, with one-third naming losing weight as their 2019 resolution, closely following eating healthier and exercising more.    These are all worthy goals — and codifying them may help you succeed in your efforts, research has found. One study conducted at The University of Scranton1 found you’re ten times more likely to change a behavior simply by making a New Year’s resolution to do so.    Once you identify a goal you’d like to achieve — weight loss, for instance — follow these steps to help ensure your success.  1. Be Specific with Your Goal Instead of simply aiming to lose weight, be very clear about what you want to achieve. For instance, after assessing your body mass index, you might decide to set a goal of losing 15 pounds. Or you might resolve to get your blood pressure into a healthy range, or to be able to walk a mile in a certain amount of time. The more specific you are, the more able you’ll be to assess your progress as you move toward your goal. 2. Set a Realistic Weight Loss Goal It’s important to be realistic about your expectations. For instance, if your focus is weight loss and your goal is to reach your high school weight, take a look at whether that weight is achievable through healthy weight loss and if it’s sustainable. By losing a modest amount of weight — 5 percent to 10 percent of your body weight — you can still bring significant improvements to your health, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.2   Research has found that people who want to lose weight often have unrealistically high weight-loss goals. Several studies, for instance, found that patients receiving weight-loss treatment ideally wanted to lose approximately 33 percent of their body weight within one year.3 Having overly aggressive weight loss goals such as these might not be advisable, experts say,4 as it can lead to disappointment — and, possibly, failure. Setting realistic goals, on the other hand, may make it more likely that you’ll reach your New Year’s resolution. 3. Come Up With a Realistic Timeframe to Reach Your Goal  Set a date by which you aim to lose the weight. Although you may initially see a large drop on the scale when you begin a weight loss program, your progress will likely even out as you continue your new, healthy lifestyle. After a month of weight loss, aim to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week as experts recommend.3  4. Set Both Long- and Short-Term Goals — and Write Them Down  To help keep yourself motivated toward meeting your ultimate goal, set mini-goals you can reach within a month or so. Perhaps you’d like to lose 5 pounds, or tighten your belt by a notch — think about the little things in addition to the big ones, then write them down. A study conducted at Dominican University of California5 showed that more than 70 percent of people who wrote down their goals (and in this case, shared them with someone else) were successful in achieving those goals, compared with a 35 percent success rate among those who didn’t commit to their goals in writing.  5. Create Action Steps  Figure out exactly what will help you reach your goal — and in doing so, think back to any time when you tried to lose weight but weren’t as successful as you’d hoped. What kept you from succeeding? What were your missteps?    For instance, you might decide that you need to modify your behavior at home or work by doing the following:6 Eating more mindfully — avoid watching TV, reading, talking on the phone or working on the computer during a meal  Keeping healthy snacks on-hand: fruit, non-starchy vegetables, nonfat Greek yogurt or one of your favorite Jenny Craig snacks  Drinking a glass of water before eating  Avoiding high-calorie add-ons such as butter, mayonnaise and sugary creamers Swapping soda for a glass of sparkling water with lemon  Going for a walk during your work breaks  6. Don’t Rely on Willpower Alone  According to the American Psychological Association (APA),7 expecting to lose weight through willpower alone could be a mistake. Sure, you might have loads of resolve at the beginning of your weight-loss journey, but with time, that resolve can falter. In fact, according to a survey conducted by the APA, respondents cited not having enough willpower — which the organization defines as “the ability to delay gratification, resisting short-term temptations in order to meet long-term goals”— as the top reason they were unable to make healthy lifestyle changes.   Likening willpower to a muscle that gets fatigued from overuse, experts say that relying on your internal strength to resist temptation can take a mental toll over time; you need tools and strategies to support your resolve. In addition to summoning — and maintaining — as much willpower as you can, the APA recommends the following to help you achieve your goals:  Get support. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, discovered that individuals following structured weight loss programs with support were more likely to lose weight and more likely to keep off the weight, than those who did not.8 If you’re looking for a plan that offers dedicated support — Jenny Craig provides personal weight loss consultants for every member.  Focus on one behavior at a time. Instead of coming up with a long list of behaviors you will institute (or change) all at once, focus on one clear tactic at the outset; then add on from there. Doing so, experts say, will allow you to focus your willpower in one area — and, once you’ve mastered that one, you’ll have more willpower to tackle the next one on your list. So, for example, you might decide that you want to eat fewer sweets — you should master that behavior before adding another tactic of, say, exercising daily. Succeeding at modifying each successive behavior will boost your confidence — and your willpower. Monitor your behavior in regard to your plan. If your target behavior is to eat fewer sweets, make a plan of how you will achieve that, whether it’s substituting fruit or non-fat yogurt for dessert, doing some meditation after dinner instead of reaching for a bowl of ice cream, or ridding your pantry of candy. Keep track of your progress and stumbles: If you were able to resist those temptations for a full day, write it down (and celebrate it!) — along with any tactics you used to steer clear of the sweets. And if you do experience a slip-up, don’t let it take you off track. And show yourself some self-compassion: Brush yourself off, try to figure out what contributed to the stumble, write it down and learn from your mistake. Then recommit — daily, if necessary — to your goal.  7. Reward Yourself Along the Way You’re working hard — you deserve to reward yourself! Not all of your achievements need to be weight-related, though, so if you’ve shunned dessert for an entire week, treat yourself to a movie. Hit the gym four days this week? That calls for flowers!  8. Envision Your End-Result Picture how you will look at your goal weight, how it will feel to fit back into your favorite pair of jeans, the triumph you’ll feel as you run up a flight of stairs without becoming winded. Then write down how that feels. Having a clear picture of where you want to go, as well as the emotions involved once you get there, will help you stay motivated and on track.   We hope these tips inspire you to make realistic goals this year — and set you up for success to accomplish all of them! Remember — your resolution can serve as a powerful way to help you connect to your truest wishes and your most fervent hopes to live a healthier life.    Do you need help committing to your New Year’s resolution?

In their own words, they’ll share their favorite foods, activities and creative tips that help them develop healthier habits and reach their weight loss goals.   Meet Chloe, an aspiring Master’s student, pet parent and all-around amazing member! Chloe lost over 30 lbs.† on Jenny Craig and maintains her weight loss by enjoying Jenny Craig meals, hitting her daily 10K step count and swimming twice a week. See how Chloe spends a typical Tuesday: †Weight lost on Classic program. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Chloe received promotional consideration. 8:30 - 9:00 a.m.  Start the day off right.  <br>BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! It’s 8:30 a.m. and my alarm is going off. I am definitely not one of those people who wakes up, jumps out of bed and dances their way to the bathroom. After waking up, I continue to lay in bed, check my phone and procrastinate leaving my warm, comfortable sheets. Once I decide it’s time to get up, I slowly make my way out of bed and head to the washroom to start my morning routine.   For breakfast I make my favorite Jenny Craig Maple French Toast with Breakfast Syrup and pair it with a warm drink. I love the flexibility the Jenny Craig Program has afforded me – I still get to indulge in one of my favorite drinks every morning!     After breakfast, I head back to my room for about an hour of study time. 10:30 - 12:00 p.m.  Making time for exercise.  Although the Jenny Craig Program doesn’t require exercise to be successful, it does emphasize a healthy lifestyle. During my weight loss journey, I often left weekly consultations with the goal of completing 10,000 steps a day, as I don’t enjoy the gym or most other forms of exercise. After hitting my goal weight, I became more comfortable in my skin and began swimming weekly.     I swim for about an hour or 1.5 to 2 kilometers twice a week and feel great afterwards! Growing up, I was a synchronized swimmer and loved being in the water! After gaining weight and being uncomfortable in a bathing suit, I lost touch with swimming and hadn’t swum in over 5 years. Since hitting my goal weight, I began swimming again and notice significant improvements in my energy and motivation!   After exercising, I refuel with a Jenny Craig Essential Nutrition bar and lots of water. These Jenny Craig bars are something I will eat for the rest of my life – I love the taste and they are way better than any other protein bar I’ve tried before! 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. Lunchtime Lunch today is the Jenny Craig Beef Merlot . I always love to have a fresh salad with lunch. I usually start with some lettuce and throw in any other veggies I have in the fridge. Sticking to the Jenny Craig Program, I top it with a Jenny Craig dressing and sometimes some freshly ground pepper! Yum!   2:30 p.m. Time to get ready for work.   Juggling two part-time jobs and a full-time Master’s degree, along with other commitments can be a struggle. Jenny Craig has made meal preparation and weight loss easy to fit into any busy schedule!    <br>     Since starting Jenny Craig in early 2018 I have lost over 30 pounds.†  I was inspired to join Jenny Craig and lose weight when my clothes got to the point where they didn’t fit me anymore. It was frustrating, depressing and something I faced every day. Since hitting my goal weight, it’s been so liberating to throw on anything from my closet and head out the door without feeling self-conscious about my body. Being able to fit into my clothes makes getting ready so much easier and faster! 3:00 - 8:30 p.m. Work and Dinner Working part-time at a bakery can make sticking to a meal plan more difficult. The best thing about the Jenny Craig plan is the fact that you get a dessert every single night! Prepared meals and dessert? Sign me up! Knowing I have a delicious treat to eat when I get home helps me stay on track and stick to the Jenny Craig program. Tonight, because of my closing shift I ate my Jenny Craig Margherita Pizza while on break at work. 8:45 - 11:00 p.m. Time to wind down. After work, I make my way home and look forward to eating my dessert. Tonight’s dessert will be the Jenny Craig Pumpkin Spice Cakes. This sweet snack reminds me that just because I’m trying to lose weight, doesn’t mean I can’t treat myself and enjoy the foods I love most!     With a couple more hours before bed, I catch up with my family and talk to them about their days. Depending on how much time I have left before bed, I’ll crack open my books one last time to try to get ahead in my coursework. 11:00 p.m. Bedtime At last, it’s time for bed! I complete my nightly routine, get my pajamas on and grab my eye mask!     Thanks for joining me on my day today – goodnight all! 😊   Feeling inspired by Chloe’s story?
