  2. I easily drank two liters or more of regular soda a day. I usually skipped breakfast but would grab a croissant or doughnut later in the morning. Lunch would be a large hero sandwich full of meats and cheese with chips, or a double cheeseburger with supersized fries. I washed it down with my favorite supersized soda. Sometimes I would not have dinner if I had a late lunch. If I did eat dinner on my way home, I would pick up fried chicken and onion rings or have macaroni and cheese or steak with potatoes. Whatever it was, it was in large portions. Late at night, I would snack on sweets. My favorites were brownies, cupcakes and ice cream. I learned so much after joining Jenny Craig. I had my own personal coach, which for me was one of the best things about the program. She was always there to educate me, help me stay motivated and hold me accountable. I learned portion control, healthy choices and how to space out my meals. I now enjoy eating nutritious food in the right amounts and have developed healthy eating habits that I plan to continue to keep my weight off. One weight loss tip that worked well for me is to self-monitor. I track what I am eating and see the results I am having. Weight loss accountability is key! I did not do any activity except for the walking I did for my job in retail. After I lost my first 20 pounds, I wanted to start firming and toning up. I joined a women’s gym and took cardio dance classes and worked out on the elliptical trainer or the treadmill. I went 3-4 times a week for 60 minutes and really enjoyed it. I did this new routine for six months and then I was ready for something new and more challenging. My confidence, energy, and fitness level had all increased and I was proud of my progress. I started taking boxing and kickboxing classes and loved it! I continue with these classes today and go six times a week taking a one hour class. On three days of the week, I also meet with a personal trainer at the gym for weight lifting and strength training. I get up early to take class from 5:30 a.m. to 6:45 a.m. and then stay for personal training on three of those days. Going to the gym is a priority for me and is my special time to focus on my health. I consider it to be a mental cleanse to clear my stress, and it is a wonderful way to start the day. Even though it is an established routine for me, I still schedule the time in my daily planner to stay focused and committed. I also do the same for my meetings with my Jenny Craig coach to help me keep the weight off. I lost 62 pounds* on Jenny Craig. This weight loss journey was life-changing! My doctor was amazed at my success and told me that I no longer had prediabetes. Personally, I feel that my weight loss and exercise has saved my health and perhaps my life. It feels wonderful to have more energy and not feel out of breath all the time. My confidence has soared and I enjoy wearing stylish clothes and I am especially proud to wear my bathing suit. My health and wellness is not something I take for granted now. I know the importance of caring for myself inside and out. I hope my story inspires others who want to lose weight and change their lives for the better! Feeling inspired by Tenisha’s story?

  10. A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine1 recognized Jenny Craig as a potential treatment against obesity through its weight loss and weight management program. Further, the study "Mechanisms, Pathophysiology, and Management of Obesity" underscores the key elements of treating obesity which include live counseling, a low-calorie diet, physical activity and behavior modification – all of which are fundamental elements of the Jenny Craig program. Obesity is a leading cause of chronic diseases. Within the study, researchers Dr. Heymsfield and Dr. Wadden provide a thorough review of the causes, health consequences and treatment of obesity. Their review underscores the complexity of the condition and the challenge its epidemic proportions present to the healthcare system. "We are gratified that Jenny Craig was specifically named as a commercial program for physician referral. The study is further validation of the importance of regular contact with a trained counselor to provide behavioral strategies, set goals and engage in problem solving for both weight loss and weight maintenance. All of these are key components of our one-on-one personalized approach," said Monty Sharma, CEO of Jenny Craig. In particular, the study references that a commercial weight loss program, such as Jenny Craig, can be prescribed by physicians if the program's safety and efficacy have been reported in peer-reviewed journals as is the case with Jenny Craig. According to obesity researcher and Jenny Craig Science Advisor Frank Greenway, MD, "Most physicians recognize obesity as a chronic disease. They recommend diet and exercise for weight management, but need referral resources to support their patients to succeed. The highly respected New England Journal of Medicine recommends that referrals be made to weight loss programs that have evidence of safe and effective weight loss published in high-quality medical journals. Only two programs were mentioned as fulfilling that criteria and Jenny Craig was one of those." For more information, visit the full press release. 1Heymsfield, Steven B. & Wadden, Thomas A. Mechanisms, Pathophysiology, and Management of Obesity. (2017). New England Journal of Medicine, 376:254-266. DOI: 10.1056/NEJMra1514009
