My whole life my weight has been a struggle. Being a full time hairdressing salon owner/operator, wife and mother of two children has had a large impact on my diet and exercise. I would come home from working 10-12 hour days exhausted and find comfort in sitting on the couch and eating take-away and junk food.
I remember the day like it was yesterday, I was at my heaviest weight. A client who I hadn't seen in a long time came in and I saw the shock look on her face. She asked if I was ok? Leesa you have put on so much weight. This made me want to burst into tears they say the truth hurts. At this moment I knew something had to change. Not long after this we booked a family trip to America and I knew this would give me the extra motivation I needed to finally lose the weight.
With 20 weeks until my holiday I knew I couldn't do this on my own, so I made the call to Jenny Craig. After my first meeting with my wonderful consultant Jackie I felt very confident I had made the best decision. The team at Jenny Craig Hobart have been such a huge support, with tips and hints on how to make the most of the program. My Monday meetings were soon becoming a highlight of my week. I reached my goal of losing 20 kilos before my holiday and felt so amazing that I decided to keep going and set myself a new goal of reaching 75kg. With a loss of 39kg I am feeling so happy, confident and full of life.
Now my clients comment on how much younger and healthier I look and ask me what is my secret. I tell them there is no secret just Jenny Craig, if you follow the program you will lose weight. If I can do it so can you.
