Why was the Jenny Craig program right for me?
I knew the other programs honestly didn't work because they were not educating me with the proper ways to make life-lasting changes. I loved that the food was frozen and easy to make before, during, and after work. I was worried that it would not taste very good. But, there is so much to choose from that I picked and chose what kinds of foods I enjoy (ie. pizza, alfredo, eggs, cheetoh's, chocolate). You know the food must be pretty good if I still eat it! I was also glad that I didn't have to weigh myself weekly in front of an audience! It was private between my consultant Molly, and me. We built a relationship as I came in to see her each week. Creating a goal weight helped me to stay focused. I was determined and didn't want to let her or myself down. Talking about my feelings regarding my weight and obstacles I faced each week helped keep me on track the following week. Molly taught me about healthy foods and how to balance them throughout the day. As I reached maintenance she had me go into the grocery store and write down what kinds of foods I wanted to plan for a "weekly menu." She built up my confidence to make the proper food choices on my own. It is important that you find something that works for you and your lifestyle; then you can make changes permanently.
