Pros:Excellent tasting foods, a program offering a wide range of foods YOU choose from, one on one approach to weight loss and many more benefits of losing weight with Jenny Craig
Cons:Costs about $80 a week for most of the food you'll need to buy, at times I find the counselors not to have all the answers
Please read my success story with Jenny Craig! Don't let others' opinions scare you away from trying an awesome weight loss program!
I'm baffled about ALL the negative comments concerning Jenny Craig here at Epinions.com. I've been on the program 8 weeks now and have lost 18 pounds!!!:) There hasn't been ONE week where I have gained weight or maintained my weight. The other comments MUST be from others who didn't follow the program, and didn't see results. Hey that's not the programs fault, but their own! Please don't be misled, read on about my success story on Jenny Craig:)
I'm on several prescription medications for my arthritis and lower back pain. I was afraid Jenny Craig wouldn't allow me on their program this time around due to the medications. I found out that wasn't the case!!! My Doctor needed to submit a note letting Jenny Craig know it was ok for me to be on their program.
There are several types of memberships. I chose the Platinum Membership because I wanted a program to be available to me after I've lost the weight. This membership offers a maintenance program which can only help keep my weight off. Jenny Craig weight loss centers offer a payment plan for their membership fees! You DON"T have to pay the entire membership fee at once-which was extremely important to me.
I decided to try this program because I had been on it before and had done great! I had gained some of the weight I had lost a few years ago. However, I knew Jenny Craig was the right weight loss program for me to go back to. I like the one on one approach, as opposed to a group setting. I feel comfortable with my counselor and knew I needed the one on one approach to weight loss. I'm not comfortable in a group setting.
I find the program to be very effective. The food is delicious and the portions are the right amount. In fact there are days I can't eat all the food I'm supposed to-that's how full I am on Jenny Craig!
YOU have many weekly menus to choose from (at least 7 weeks of menus that I know of!). Jenny Craig even offers a Chocolate Lover's Menu!!! Imagine that...being able to lose weight and eat their double chocolate cake, peanut butter bar and more chocolate items! They even offer a candy you can have twice a day. It tastes and is wrapped just like a Tootsie Roll!
