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

By Stephanie E - Jenny Craig

*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.



“I went to stand back up and I felt like I was hoisting so many bricks on my back, and then I just fell over.” Katrina tells PEOPLE. “That was a big turning point for me. I became the patient.”


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.



“My whole mindset switched from being lazy to wanting to be active all the time,” she shares with PEOPLE. “I really came full circle from the beginning where I literally passed out and fell over.”
