7 Reasons to Stick with Jenny Craig and Lose those Extra Pounds

By now, you probably know that Jenny Craig isn’t a rapid weight loss diet. Unlike so many “accelerated results” programs that promise easy weight loss (and often result in rapid regain) it’s a proven lifestyle strategy that has helped millions steadily shed unwanted pounds—while creating healthy habits to help you manage your weight. For those days when you might be feeling just a tad less motivated, here are seven compelling reasons to stay the course.

1. Your health
Well, this one is a bit of a no-brainer, isn’t it? But it’s worth mentioning that maintaining a healthy weight can help lower your cholesterol, lower your risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease or diabetes, and reduce strain on your bones and joints. Losing weight is a healthy choice.

2. For more confidence
When you feel good inside your own skin, the whole world seems a little brighter. And having more confidence can have a positive impact on all facets of your life, from your trajectory at work, to your relationships with friends and family, to your basic self-esteem. You totally deserve this!

3. For fun
Carrying around extra weight can limit your range of motion—and that can mean sitting out of group activities, whether it’s a hike with girlfriends or a family backpacking trip. Eating well, moving more and reaching a healthier weight can help you lead a more active, adventurous lifestyle. Bring on the fun!

4. Your closet
Have you ever put off buying a new outfit because of your current size? We’ve all done it, and this habit can leave you feeling like you’ve got nothing special to wear, ever! With Jenny Craig, you’ll learn healthy habits that can help you manage your weight, so get ready to dress that slim new physique!

5. Enjoy your summer
Backyard BBQs and beach trips mean shorts and swimsuits—does that make you feel excited, or anxious? Losing weight will give you the body confidence you need to embrace each beautiful, sunny day without feeling like you need to be covered up. It’s time to grin and BARE it.

6. Prove yourself right
You’ve set out to do something, and you’re NOT a quitter. Every time you choose celery sticks instead of French fries... every time you take the stairs instead of the elevator… every time you stop eating before you’re stuffed… it’s all proof of your ongoing, AMAZING commitment to yourself and your weight loss program.

7. Set an example
Have you ever been inspired by one of Jenny Craig’s thousands of REAL success stories? This is your chance to join them—and potentially motivate others to follow in your footsteps. If your actions help even one person to embark upon a journey toward better health, you’ve done a very good thing.
