Centre: Belconnen, ACT

Weight Loss: 25kg

Why did you decide to join Jenny Craig?

My family and I moved to ACT in December last year. I was so embarrassed about my weight I didn’t want to leave the house. I was sleeping all day and had no energy; I was so miserable.
I decided enough was enough, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and knew I could do something myself to stop me having to go on medication. But I needed help and I needed to be held accountable for my actions.

Can you describe your experience on the Jenny Craig program?

Jenny Craig has been amazing. The food is very good and I have never felt hungry at all. I can even eat choc chip cookies and ice-cream, heaven! I’ve had such a good time, my 74-year-old Mum has now joined too! My Consultant Elysha is so very kind and encouraging. She keeps me motivated and has had amazing tips for me to help on my journey. I couldn’t have done it without her, she is just so lovely.

Do you have any favourite items from the Jenny Craig menu?

My favourites are the Choc Chip Bites, Ice-Cream Sundae, Butter Chicken and Beef Pastie.

How do you feel now that you’ve lost the weight?

I feel strong and confident. I feel energised. Every day I do a 10km workout on my treadmill! My family is so very proud of me. My husband this he has a new wife!

Do you have a standout moment on the Jenny Craig program you’d like to share?

When I got on the scales and it was 69kg I was so excited that I did a dance in the Jenny Craig office! I hadn’t been in the 60’s since I was a teenager, a long time ago! Also, walking into the Jenny Craig office holding my Mum’s hand knowing that this step would change her life for the better too, because it did for me.
