Centre: Papamoa, NZ

Weight loss: 38kg

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

I was heavily overweight, buying bigger clothes all the time, so unfit, walking and climbing stairs got me huffing and puffing. I was embarrassed, I knew my family thought I was big, but they never said anything. I tried to lose weight myself, but would always give up, and I was tired all the time.

Why did you decide to join Jenny Craig?

I knew I had to do something about my weight, I knew I needed some form of help, I thought about Jenny Craig for 2 weeks when I saw the advert on TV. I just needed to get the courage to do it. I walked into the Papamoa centre and Hayley was so welcoming. I signed up then and there and started my weight loss journey.

Can you describe your experience on the Jenny Craig program?

It was fantastic, every week I went to my appointment to weigh in and sit down with Hayley for one on one consultation to talk about the next week’s plan, motivation and menu. It was easy in the sense you got the weekly menu, you got the food, you just stick to it. With determination, anyone can do it.

Tell us about your Jenny Craig Consultant?

Hayley is amazing, so supportive and encouraging. She was there for me every week, always smiling and welcoming just like the very first day I walked in. We formed a bond, a journey taken together. She was there by my side through this amazing transformation.

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

Fantastic, fitter, I’m cycling 34 km now 3-6times a week, I go shopping and go straight to the smaller clothes, it feels really good. It’s a real personal satisfaction reaching my goal. I walk with confidence now, hold my head up high and even wear shorts!

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

Reaching halfway was a milestone, reaching the goal was out of this world, it was worth every day, every week, every month.
