A Guide to Healthy Living in Your 50s

If you’re like many women, turning 50 may have been a bit of a shock for you, maybe even downright difficult as you contemplated the inevitable passing of time and eyed some surprising changes to your body. This milestone — half a century on this earth! — certainly is momentous, but that doesn’t mean it can’t bring a renewed commitment to your health and well-being.

Why Dominique D. Returned to Jenny Craig — And How She’s Lost Over 30 lbs.*

*Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Dominique received promotional consideration.

 

Dominique is no stranger to the Jenny Craig program. “When I originally joined Jenny Craig, I had just gotten engaged to my college sweetheart. I was always the type of girl who had pictured her dream wedding in her mind. As I looked ahead to that dream becoming a reality, I knew in my heart that I would regret not looking and feeling my best on the most important day of my life.
