“I was eating to try to fill a void and calm my nerves.”

My father became very ill in 2015. I was doing a lot of traveling from Canada to Florida to visit him and help my mom. At the time, I never felt hungry. Instead, I ate to try to fill a void and calm my nerves. It was an incredibly stressful time and my eating habits seemed like they were out of control. My father’s health continued to decline and sadly, he passed away in May of 2016.

Even though my weight gain was noticeable, none of my family ever commented on it. But I began to really dislike the image I saw in the mirror and I knew that my health was in jeopardy.

My doctor was concerned about my high blood pressure, so she prescribed medication to bring it down. I went back to her office every three months so she could monitor my blood pressure. At that point, I resigned myself to being overweight and dependent on medication for the rest of my life.

My daughter suggested that I come along with her to a high-intensity interval training class at her gym. The thought of that was terrifying. After all, I was overweight and out of shape and I didn’t think I would be able to handle such a demanding class. Despite my fear, I took the class with my daughter and eventually fell in love with working out. I went 3-4 times a week but did not change my eating habits. I thought I would be able to burn off my excess weight with exercise, but instead, I was still gaining weight. I began to think exercise was a waste of my time since it wasn’t helping me lose weight. I felt very discouraged.

Joining Jenny Craig was my saving grace. I was welcomed with open arms and found success while getting my eating habits back on track.

I thought I could burn off my excess weight with exercise, but instead, I was still gaining weight.

Betty and Sue, my coaches, are my biggest fans. I look forward to seeing them each week! Although I am on maintenance now, I keep myself in check by continuing to eat Jenny Craig food to keep my portions under control.

My blood pressure is back within a normal range and my doctor has taken me off my medication.‡‡ My workouts have remained a constant, but my body has changed significantly. I have run two 5K races with my daughters and even placed in the top three in my age group in one of them!

I’m so thankful for my coaches and the Jenny Craig program for not only changing my body and mind, but my entire life!
