What moment made you want to contact Jenny Craig?
I saw myself from a different angle. I was in my shop and I was changing my shirt, I have a security camera that got me from a different angle and I looked at the screen and was like “am I really that big? Really? Is it that wide?” It was like “wow, I can’t believe that”, I saw how huge I was getting and I needed help.
I saw a Jenny Craig ad and I said… “it’s gotta work, it’s working for others, it must be able to work for me”, so I ended up that next day phoning up and saying “I need to find a way to fix this”. You know I didn’t even think I would get through the first few weeks, I’m here now and lost 32 kilos and I’m still going! Now, I feel fantastic, I feel really light on my feet, energetic, happy motivated, and just healthy.
What role did your Jenny Craig consultant play in your journey?
Just having the Consultant able to be there every week. They’re there to help prompt you along and check in. “How’d you go for the week? Did you do your exercises? Did you drink your water? Were any of the meals not that good? Can we put anything in which will make it better?”
They have been really, really helpful, if you didn’t have the Consultant, there is no way that you could do this, like you need that constant support through your program. They are really good as your mentor and as a person that will be there when you need them and my Consultant said “.. if you’re ever having a problem or having a struggle, just give us a phone call.”
What would you say to other men in your position? To men who think Jenny Craig is not for guys, but want to make a change?
Realistically, I thought that too, about it not being for men, but then I realised they have men success stories.
I wanted to be a success story and I thought “well I must be able to do this too.” Jenny Craig is for everybody, not just for women. There is good hearty meals for men. There’s lovely full meals you can enjoy. It makes you look good too. Now, I feel really confident and happy.
