I still have 15 LB's to lose. Daughter is 6 mos old. I am so ready for my previous size. I'm at the gym 4 days per week and making healthier choices, but no change on the scale.
Anyone out there tried JC? I'm tempted to try her out

I haven't tried Jenny Craig, but with Herbalife I've lost 34 lbs in 6 weeks. You can find out more at my website:

This is an awesome program with healthly side effects!

I tried Jenny Craig several years ago and I really liked it. The food is delicious and I lost the weight that I wanted. After you lose your target weight, the counselors will teach you how to maintain it which is helpful. Good Luck!

Those last few pounds are always the trickiest to get off! you are on the right track with exercising several times a day but you are right... if it's not partnered with good eating habits, then you are not getting full benefit of your exercising. I have never done Jenny craig or Weight Watchers. Im sure they are good programs. My only concern is you want someone to guide you to healthier lifestyle choices. The lessons they teach and food they recommend you eating... can you continue it on after the "program" is over. If not, then I would hesitate. The weight has a higher probability of coming back if they are habits ou cannot keep. i recommend seeing a registered dietitian.. one that believes in lifestyle changes and food being a good thing! I have a friend who is fantastic! Her and her family just moved to Louisiana though but she does phone consultations. She's amazing. Here is her website... http://www.yvettequantz.com/
Best wishes to you!

I had a couple of friends that tried it and did really well.
The pre-portioned food can be expensive.

The concept behind Jenny Craig is to teach portion control. If you already know how to do that you'll probably not enjoy the program. They serve really good food, though, but in tiny portions. They make you eat a snack, and I think it's bizarre to pay $3 for a baggie of cheese doodles. Similarly, the granola is $3, if I remember correctly, and there's nothing special about it so it equates to about $30 for a box of plain-ol' cereal. THAT stresses me out. HOWEVER, if you can go on their pre-packaged plans you won't see what you're paying for the little things, and their food is WAY better than anywhere else. They actually have prize-winning chefs create their entrees.

I haven't tried Jenny Craig but I am currently on Weight Watchers. It is the easiest diet for me to stick to. I have been on it for 11 weeks and have lost 21.2lbs. Of course I also had more to lose than you so you may or may not lose as fast. My husband is on it with me and he has already lost 20.8lbs. Good Luck in your efforts.

I did JC after my son was born for a few months. It helped me drop inches more than weight. I droped like 8 inches all over. Once I stopped I gained a feww back, but was overall happy. Besides, the meals are easy and good...and I never had time to cook.

I had great success with JC. Lost about 20 lbs but the food is only so-so.
