My weight loss journey … or what I learned from being on Jenny Craig

My weight loss journey … or what I learned from being on Jenny Craig

I haven’t done a weight loss update in a while, so I thought I’d go ahead and write up a post summarizing everything I’ve learned and my progress to date. As you can see, I’ve lost almost 30 pounds from when I took a good hard look at myself and said enough! I was finally motivated to get healthy, and since I wasn’t really all that great at keeping up on my own, I decided to join Jenny Craig.

Started Jenny Craig

Started Jenny Craig

I just started Jenny Craig. I decided I can’t seem to get this weight loss thing done on my own so I figured Jenny could help me. My first day was yesterday and the food arrived on Tuesday. I also had my first consultation phone call Tuesday evening. Here are my thoughts so far. Signing up. The website has a call me back right now feature so you enter your contact information and you get a call back right away while someone connects you with another someone who will actually be signing you up. What I found a bit annoying […]
