Real Lives. Real Change.
People just like you have found real weight loss success on Jenny Craig. If they can do it, you can too! Read their inspiring stories.
I have been on seesaw diets off and on for the past 20 years or more. None of them ever lasted long. I have had two arthroscopies on both knees , and inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Both of my doctors were constantly telling me to lose weight. I even joined a health club. Well that was OK for a little while, but it just masked the obvious.
I am normally a happy person, but found myself with low self-esteem, depressed and embarrassed. The constant weight loss commercials on television made it even more depressing. Finally, I just started praying for God to help me because I could not do this on my own, and He answered. I would always change the channel when weight loss commercials came on except for the one with Valerie Bertinelli talking about Jenny Craig. When I went to bed one night, the Jenny Craig commercial with Valerie was the last one I saw, and the first one I saw when I awoke the next morning.
I decided to join Jenny and started on my weight loss journey. I have been truly blessed to have Jenny as part of my extended family. I learned that you have to make it fun, and that's just what I did. My consultant, Charlotte, made this journey easy, with her constant and continued encouragement, making sure each week I had what I needed. My family and friends have been so very supportive, and my husband says he has a new wife!
I started this journey rolling in at 237 lbs and now I am a HAPPY-AND-YOU-KNOW-IT 77 LBS* LIGHTER. OH, MY GOODNESS! The low self-esteem is gone, the knees and heels feel great, and I have a lot more energy. I can now cross my legs without pulling my pant leg up to help me get one leg over the other one. Before, I could only keep them crossed for a few minutes, if that long.
This is a journey that I have enjoyed. I am so excited about going to the stores and finding new clothes to wear in regular sizes that I can fit into. Because of the weight loss, I no longer have to shop at the "Plus Size" stores. I feel wonderful! Thank you so much, Jenny, for designing a program with me in mind!
