Melody S. lost 20 lbs.* and Changed Her Lifestyle for the Better

By Elisa - Jenny Craig


*Members on our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Weight loss current as of July 2017.  


When I was pregnant, I took the “eating for two” mentality way too far and lost control of my eating habits. To make matters worse, I continued my poor eating habits after my son was born, and six months later, I still had over 25 lbs. of post-pregnancy weight to lose. I’d gained so much weight that my wedding ring no longer fit.  I remember feeling so discouraged, that I contemplated giving up and getting my wedding ring resized to fit my larger finger.


Instead, I tried exercising to burn the excess pounds away. However, exercise alone was not the solution for me.  I realized that my weight gain began in the kitchen and that was where I needed to lose it.  Going at it alone was not working.  I knew I needed help, so I called Jenny Craig.



“Fueled by encouragement from my Jenny Craig consultant, I jumped right into the program.”


When I started the program, I was extremely skeptical about my success.  I remember my consultant asking me about my goal and I shyly gave her my pre-pregnancy weight.  I knew that I had a long way to go to reach that number, and I honestly did not think it was a real possibility. Fueled by the encouragement and reassurance from Shirley, my Jenny Craig consultant, I jumped right into the program.  At the end of my first week on the program, I lost five pounds!* I was so pleased with my success and felt motivated to continue my weight loss journey. During the following weeks, as the number on the scale dropped, my confidence and ability to say no to unhealthy food and drinks rose! 



“The Jenny Craig Program helped me make a lasting, positive change in my life and for that, I am so grateful.”


The Jenny Craig Program not only changed my eating habits, but it also changed my lifestyle.  I began to go on daily walks with my young son, drank more water, and planned more things with my friends and family that were not focused around food.  On the program, I felt satiated after every meal and I felt healthier than I ‘d ever been!  Using the Jenny Craig Program, I was able to achieve my goal weight and feel better in the process.  I was so confident about the program, and felt so supported by my consultant, that I used it to lose my pregnancy weight after my next three children!  Shirley would jokingly say, “Keep up the good work! See you after your next baby!” The Jenny Craig Program helped me make a lasting, positive change in my life and for that, I am so grateful.

I’m not trying to be negative but good for a woman who childbearing. I want to hear more about woman in late 40’s, and and early 50’s going through menopause and how the program has worked for them. I have been on almost a month on accelerated program and have lost 2 pounds. It’s expensive and isn’t working. I work out consistently daily. Very discouraged. I will give a few more days and go for my 4week weigh in and see my results then. If no results I will have to say I spent a lot of money for nothing. Wish me luck. Again what about people my age of 50. Thanks and feeling discouraged.
