Weight Loss: 21kg

Tell us a bit about you and what life was like before you joined Jenny Craig:

I had wanted to lose weight for a few years, every attempt failed – and it was obviously because mentally, I wasn’t ready – when it reached the point that I avoided photo’s being taken of me, and disliked what I saw in the mirror, I knew it was time to take action.

Why did you decide to join Jenny Craig?

I had tried many previous diets, including ones with food provided, but I’d never been accountable to a consultant. I decided it was time to combine having meals provided with a Consultant to motivate and inspire me, and this combination proved to be a perfect fit for me.

Can you describe your experience on the Jenny Craig program?

I have loved the program – I look forward every day to seeing what’s on the menu – I love the variety of food and especially love that I’m not cooking anything or having to worry about portion control – it’s all done for me. The meals are tasty and filling and I especially look forward to my afternoon snack which is a real treat.

Do you have any favourite items from the Jenny Craig menu?

My favourite dinners are the Chicken Pad Thai, Mexican Slow Cooked Pork, and Salmon Linguine – love the Butterscotch Sundae and the Melting Moment too. Too many favourites to mention.

Tell us about your Jenny Craig Consultant?

My Consultant Penny has been incredible – she’s provided encouragement all the way, and become not only a great mentor, but a friend as well. I can pick up the phone anytime, and she is there to motivate and inspire me along my journey – she has congratulated me all the way on my weight loss and has made me feel like a new person. Penny has definitely been a major factor to my success on the program.

How do you feel now that you’ve lost the weight?

I feel fantastic – I don’t get indigestion or headaches anymore, I have gone from a size 16 to a size 10 in jeans, and I love having my photo taken now. I get compliments wherever I go and feel like a new person. I had to buy a whole new wardrobe but had such fun trying on and looking and feeling good. This has definitely been a lifestyle change for me.

Do you have a standout moment on the Jenny Craig program you’d like to share?

It’s been rewarding having my husband, and two grown up kids constantly tell how fantastic I look and how proud they are of me.
