Six months after reaching her 20kg weight loss goal, our Ambassador Jules Robinson reflects on her journey.
How have you found maintaining your weight since losing 20kg with the help of Jenny Craig?
It felt amazing to reach my goal. I have more energy and I can fit even more into my day than before. I’ve loved re-discovering my wardrobe and fitting into my favourites again! With my busy lifestyle I always return to Jenny Craig in my downtime to maintain my weight. Jenny Craig is always there with support when I need it.
Having such a busy social life, attending events and luncheons I’m surrounded by food a lot. So, the lessons I learnt on how to make better choices throughout my Jenny Craig program has really helped me. I always have some Jenny Craig meals on hand at home too so I can keep a good balance.
I wanted a healthy weight I can sustain for the rest of my life. It is really important to me to have the energy for myself and my family.
What did you learn about yourself while on your weight loss journey?
I can do anything I put my mind to. I always knew this, but when you’re at the very start of a journey it can feel like your goal is unreachable and just too hard. For me, taking each day as it comes, and having patience is the key to achieving anything.
What is your favourite thing about being a part of the Jenny Craig family?
I honestly love the feedback I receive from people being a Jenny Craig ambassador. I love hearing how I have inspired them to join and how proud they are of themselves or how amazing they are feeling. For me that’s the best feeling! To know I’ve played a part in their choices is pretty special.
Are you still in touch with your coach?
I still check in with my coach once a month, we have a chat, touch base and I get to order my favourite meals and let her know how I’m tracking. My coach Caroline helped me transition off the Jenny Craig meals and is always there for me if I have a question. She has been such a great support for me, from day one.
What advice would you give people who are nearing their weight loss goal, about maintaining it long term?
My advice would be, if you eat more, move more! Don’t skip your monthly check ins with your coach and don’t get obsessed about the number on the scales. A weekly weigh is all you need to do to keep on track.
You reached your goal 6 months ago, what’s in store for the next 6 months?
Keeping up my health is so important. My goal was always to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight before I had my son Ollie so I could to do it all again! I hope to have a completely different pregnancy next time and I’m feeling stronger than ever, so fingers crossed!
