(Thank you Jenny Craig for sponsoring this post. Tried other weight loss programs, heifers? It's time to try Jenny Craig!)
The heiferhood has been a busy place lately. Most of you know that I lost about 110 pounds, 40ish on my own and then I stalled out, so I did what many heifers have done worldwide, I called Jenny Craig. Best decision ever for me - I had no idea how to lose weight, no clue what to do, where to start... and really, Jenny made it easy for me. You know that. I talk about it a lot.
I lost a total of about 70 pounds* successfully without too much stress, after starting the Jenny Craig program. I mean, the food is tasty, the support from my consultant was AMOOOOZING, and all it took was a little mental discipline. I was never hungry, because I ate 6 times a day.
*Results not typical. Members following the program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. I received promotional consideration
My center nominated me in a contest Jenny had going on - and imagine my surprise when I was asked to be a JC Ambassador, appear on their behalf in commercials, print ads, etc., based on my success story.
I was like Oprah screaming YESSSSS at the top of her lungs. If you've not seen my commercial, you can click HERE and scroll to the bottom to see it. You can also watch my couch interview with Cindy, my FAB consultant, below. She's hilarious and I couldn't love her any more.
I digress. Fast forward a few years, I've successfully maintained my weight loss. Now here's the thing. Do I still eat Jenny food? Yeah I do ... I'm kind of a HUGE fan of their pizzas and their chocolate lava cake. I mean, come on. Chocolate Lava Cake. The world seems to love it, as evidenced HERE in this article.
Anyway - so when Jenny called me up a few weeks ago and said HEY, HEIFER! (ok to be honest, they did NOT call me heifer, but I sure wish they would have...do they even HEIFER, bro?) would you hang out at our Grand Openings in Phoenix and share your success story... I said HECK YA!
If by sharing my story, someone has the courage or hope to start getting healthy, I'll share it over and over, and over.
So, I went to the Gilbert Jenny Craig grand opening and schmoozed with some of the staff and clients. Imagine my shock and awe when I pulled up to see.... well, ME, haha. Never stops making me laugh.
As you can see fun was had by ALL who attended. There were raffles, giveaways, and even Maria and Dizzie from 94.5FM.
Jenny has a new Rapid Results Program that's pretty cool - it's a science-based innovation to the JC program that leverages research on the body clock's circadian rhythm, which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. It works with the body's natural rhythm, in which metabolism ramps in the morning, peaking towards mid-day and gently tapering off towards evening.
The Rapid Results program, including the meal plan, is aligned with this rhythm, with more calories when metabolism is burning the most calories, so that members can take maximum advantage of their body's natural fat-burning ability to lose weight faster.
Rapid Results divides the day into two segments - a nourishment period and a rejuvenation period.
- During the nourishment period, members eat six times per day and choose from chef-crafted and nutritionist-designed meals. There's no counting, cooking or meal prep and the daily menu is based on appropriate nutrition for healthy weight loss. Rapid Results provides more calories when your metabolism is burning the most calories
- During Rapid Results - members will observe a 12 hour rejuvenation break - a critical reset period for the body's cells to regroup, rejuvenate and regenerate.
**On the Rapid Results program, members can lose up to 16 pounds in the first four weeks (BONUS!). Average weight loss in the study was 11.6 pounds for those who completed the program.
If you're looking for an easy, hassle-free way to lose weight and get healthy, I recommend you seriously consider the Jenny Craig program. It worked for me, it helped me catapult into the world of running and triathlon. Without my Jenny Craig success, I'd still be on the couch, eating bonbons and drinking Mountain Dew.
For those of you in the greater Phoenix area, come see me this coming Saturday at the location in Surprise, where we'll have more raffles and fun! We'll be at the Jenny Craig center located at 15261 N. Reems Road in Surprise from 9-12pm. The first 50 members at each center to receive a free 1 year membership! (with full menu purchase).***
