Jenny, My New BFF


Thank you Jenny Craig for sponsoring this post. Tried other diets? It’s time for Jenny Craig.

And by BFF, I mean Best Fat Fighter. And by fat fighter, I mean I’m losing weight.

As you know from an earlier post, I’ve partnered with Jenny Craig for three months to help me with some of my weight loss goals. Before I even knew what was happening, I had gained some weight, my clothes weren’t fitting as they should, and I just wasn’t feeling good about my body. While I wish I had started this whole weight loss adventure sooner, I didn’t. However, I am so glad that working with Jenny Craig is helping me achieve my goals.

Last time I chatted about this, I was down 8 pounds. I’m excited to report that now 5 weeks into the program, I’ve lost 5 more pounds for a total of 13 pounds.* My goal is 25-30 pounds, so I’m on track and still super excited.

*Members following the Jenny Craig program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. I received promotional consideration.

It was serendipitous that I was able to start on this program when I did. I’m the type of person who needs to go all into something so this pogram fits perfectly into my plan to become a better and happier me. While I’m still working toward my goal, I’m already starting to feel more confident about how I look. (It’s hard to be confident when you’re busy sucking in your gut so your shirt doesn’t look stretched. Right?)

I will readily admit that, in general, diets are not easy for me. This one is no exception. As I’ve told you, I’ve been tempted by jelly beans and delicious spring treats. However, what’s great about the Jenny Craig program is that I always have food, a plan, and my consultant Kim to keep me on track. The food is in my freezer and pantry, ready for me to start over with a fresh new day if I happened to “mess up” during the previous one.

The program has also taught me a lot about when and how much to eat. I’m so blessed to be able to work from home, but being 20 steps from my kitchen often makes eating way too tempting. Now, because I’m eating 6 times a day (3 main meals and 3 snacks), there’s no need to be sneaking things in between. However, if I do feel the need for more, there’s a list of Fresh & Free Additions that I can enjoy guilt free. These additions may not be cupcakes, but they’re healthy, and they keep me feeling full.

I love that I don’t have to think about what I’m going to cook or eat. In fact, this might be my favorite part. (Well, losing weight is my favorite, but you get what I mean.) Running my own business and being my own boss means that I have to make every single decision. Not having to also plan what I’ll eat is the bomb-dot-com-forward-slash- awesome. You can take a peek at some of the food options here.

I’m so excited to be continuing the program through May, which means I should be “lookin’ fine and feelin’ great” for my move to Pittsburgh. I’ll pop back in again to let you know my final results. Maybe I’ll even share a picture or two. (My transformation definitely won’t be as dramatic as Mama June’s.)

You can also check out the Jenny Craig website to find the plan that works best for you, check out some their current offers, and take a look at all of their tasty food options. (And yes, all of the food items in the photos of this post are Jenny Craig foods.)

I know I’ve said this before, but thank you so much for your support through this crazy and amazing journey we call life. I feel exceedingly blessed and honored.

    So glad to hear that this program is helping you lose weight, and as a result, feel better about yourself! You’re putting in the hard work to change all things in your life and the results are going to be spectacular! I just know it!

    I’ve been thinking about trying Jenny Craig for a while but my concern is having to eat Jenny Craig food for the rest of my life in order to keep the weight off. Are you concerned about how to handle transitioning off of it?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Yes and no. What’s nice is the the program has taught me a lot about how much food is enough (portion control) and when I should be eating. At 33 you’d think I’d already know this, but I don’t. However, I’m learning that my portions really don’t need to be as BIG as I thought and I can still enjoy what I love. It’s all about balance. I end the program in May, so I’ll be sure to report back after that.

      xo Michael

    I lost 60 lb many years ago with weight watchers and a few years ago (and many European river boat trips later) weight started sneaking back on. I’ve been casting around trying to find the best way to take the weight back off.
    I get regular exercise (gym 5X a week) and mostly make healthy choices. My problem is sweets. I love them.
    But I’ll keep working on this and cheering you on to a new svelte you.

    That food looks marvelous. I’m definitely looking into the Jenny Craig program.

    BTW, you look skinny in your picture. Are you sure you need to be on a diet?!?!
