“I was on the sidelines of my life and it didn't feel good.”
I’ve lost and gained 20 pounds off and on for most of my adult life. In my mid 40’s, I found myself 30 lbs. overweight after taking a travel job. I couldn't drop the weight like before, it simply would not budge. I was overweight, in an unhealthy relationship, and my only child went off to college. I had become a grumpy middle-aged woman, hiding behind sweaters and purses. I felt invisible to others around me. I was on the sidelines of my own life and it didn't feel good. Even though I was lonely, vulnerable and bored, deep inside I knew I had the potential for happiness again. My usual personality was outgoing, upbeat, and extroverted.
I needed a plan to feel good about myself again. The first step was ending my unhealthy relationship which was the start of a new beginning. The next step was having a project to focus on, and I decided that project would be me!
“I wanted to get rid of the weight that was holding me hostage from everything in my life.”
I started with a resolution to get rid of the weight that held me hostage from everything in my life. I needed help, a life saver, a floatation device. I remembered seeing the commercials for Jenny Craig and thought maybe it could work for me. The success stories inspired me and I related to how many of them felt when starting their journey. I called Jenny Craig, and my now consultant Belen answered the phone. I met her the next day. She became my “floatation device,” providing me with support, wisdom, inspiration, an easy to follow menu with great food, laughter, love and friendship during my entire weight loss journey. Together, we had a plan to reach my goal. Belen suggested I put "blinders on," meaning I simply allowed her to guide me through this proven plan and not stress about the road ahead. I followed the program exactly as it was designed, and my motivation to get to the finish line stayed strong. I felt a sense of accomplishment and looked forward to my Wednesday consultations with Belen. She was a reliable constant in my life even with the roller coaster of life’s challenges. I was not alone on my weight loss journey and I felt lucky to have Belen at my side.
"I have my beautiful life back and at age 54, I feel like I am 35 again!"
Thanks to Belen, the Jenny Craig program, and my dedication and effort, I lost 30 lbs.* and reached my goal! At age 54, I feel like I'm 35 again! There was no guesswork or wondering during my journey, instead, it was understanding and following the program. The future feels bright and positive as I’m no longer stuck in a rut. I sold my house, moved downtown and started getting involved in life again. Being single, I feel that I’m no longer invisible and I look forward to new relationships. I'm in the game, no longer on the sidelines and it feels fantastic! I'm a better person physically, mentally and spiritually.
