“I wanted to lose weight and improve my health, but I didn’t know where to start.”


While most of us live a relatively ordinary life, we still encounter moments – getting a dream job or finding true love – that change our lives, our way of thinking, and ourselves. These special moments don’t happen all the time, but when they do, you feel their impact deep inside your soul. I’ve been lucky enough to experience one of these life-changing moments. For me, it was my weight loss. My experience of losing over 100 lbs.* on Jenny Craig will be with me forever. I believe that when most people think about weight loss, they think “thin equals happy.” It’s true, I do feel happy. But physical changes aren’t the only benefits of losing weight: I’ve experienced significant changes to my health, my lifestyle, and my confidence. 




“For me, the key to losing weight is balance.”


There are a lot of ways to lose weight, but for me, the key was balance. Jenny Craig provided that balance with its healthy meals and portion control. The menus are more than just a list of foods you’re supposed to eat that day. They are a layout of nutritious meals that provide what your body needs to lose weight and be properly nourished. The menus also helped me to learn new eating habits. Most people eat three meals a day, but the Jenny Craig menus included three meals and three snacks, which kept my hunger at bay. I learned that keeping my body fueled throughout the day would help to stop those extra food cravings. As I mastered my new healthy eating habits, I was able to plan, prepare and eat meals on my own based on what I learned from the program and my Jenny Craig consultant.



“My energy, my spirit, and my body have never felt so good.”


When I started at Jenny Craig, I weighed 311 lbs. As I followed the Jenny Craig menu plan and successfully lost weight, I started to notice positive changes to my health. I no longer slept until 2 p.m. in the afternoon or needed coffee to wake up. My back pain disappeared, I noticed my hair was fuller and my skin cleared up. My sleep was more restful with less tossing and turning. 


Along with improved health, I found that my lifestyle was changing, too. I had the energy to do things I couldn’t do before and the urge to try things I’ve never tried before. Now, I can ride a bike comfortably, lift weights and go rollerblading. I’ve lived next to a nature preserve my whole life, but it wasn’t until I lost weight that I had the urge to go out and explore its many beautiful trails. When I set my goal to lose weight, I never expected it to change my lifestyle in this way.


Losing weight also gave me a confidence that I never knew existed. If I could lose over 100 lbs.*, how hard could it be to try other new foods, a different style of clothing, or a new adventure? My confidence in everything I did skyrocketed after losing weight. I was never one to try new things, especially when it came to food. Now, I look forward to it! After losing weight, I started to push myself harder to achieve the things I wanted in my life. 


I lost 115 lbs.* on Jenny Craig and I feel great! I have learned so much on my weight loss journey and hope to inspire others with my success. 

One tip that works for me is to not rely on food for my happiness. My motto is “don’t indulge on food, indulge in life.” I know that losing weight and keeping it off is not easy, but Jenny Craig gave me the support I needed. The best advice I can give is to not give up. The benefits are well worth the effort. The feeling of having my life back in my control is indescribable!
