Tell us a bit about you and what life was like before you joined Jenny Craig:
I am a proud single working Mum to a 12yo boy. With pregnancy, having a newborn baby and the relationship breakdown with my sons father I put on a lot of weight and lost myself in depression for a while. My health was not good and my blood pressure was extremely high. I struggled just walking a few meters.

Why did you decide to join Jenny Craig?
I was asked to be a bridesmaid for a wedding in Dec 2018. I had just started aquacise classes with a friend and wanted to incorporate nutritious food alongside exercise. I had previously joined Jenny Craig with lifetime membership 17 years earlier and was successful back then so it was an easy decision to call Jenny Craig again.

Can you describe your experience on the Jenny Craig program?
All positive and so successful that I initially gave myself a goal weight of 80kgs, then 70kgs and now 64kgs! I enjoy the food a lot and will continue ordering food after I reach my goal. I have found it easy to stick with the program, and my Consultant is a fantastic support.

Do you have any favourite items from the Jenny Craig menu?
I love the cannelloni and the quiche but have a lot of favorites!

Tell us me about your Jenny Craig Consultant?
Fran at Tuggeranong is fantastic. Having her support and weekly check in’s is what gives Jenny Craig the edge over other weight loss companies. She always has great ideas and tips for keeping up with water intake, incorporating exercise and new recipes/snacks for free & limited free foods. I can’t say enough great things and I couldn’t have done this without her.

How do you feel now that you’ve lost the weight?
Amazing! My blood pressure and cholesterol are now back down to normal and I feel fit and strong. My mental health and outlook on life have completely changed. I love going shopping for new clothes and experimenting with my style.

Do you have a standout moment on the Jenny Craig program you’d like to share?
I am so proud of my achievements in reaching each goal that I have set for myself and going from Size 20 to Size 10 clothing is a big standout.
