Thank you Jenny Craig for sponsoring this post. Tried other diets? It’s time for Jenny Craig!

If you’ve read my site or my social media feeds of late, you know that I am loving my new, healthy life thanks to some hard work, exercise, and Jenny Craig. I’ve lost 53 pounds* and I really feel like a new person. Everything is better! I look better, my clothes fit better, I have more energy. It’s a complete and total win in every way. As I am very near to my ultimate weight loss goal*, I not only want to keep it up but I want to teach myself how to maintain this new, better, and much more healthy lifestyle now and in the future. It’s about now, yes, but it’s also about later. I think the entire Jenny Craig program really helps with that, too.

*Results not typical. Members following the Jenny Craig program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. I received promotional consideration.

The awesome Jenny Craig food is a huge kickstarter. I love the food, I really do. Jenny Craig entrees are the basis of every meal. You will learn how to balance your meals plus members add in their own fruits, vegetables and dairy for balance and variety. Plus, consultants teach members how to combine delicious Jenny Craig Meals and Snacks with Fresh & Free Additions that are rich in water and fiber to keep you feeling full longer with fewer calories. The food is designed to help members experience healthy ingredients and learn proper portion control. Having the structure of a menu with portion-controlled meals can help members feel more in control of their eating and reduce the stress of making healthy choices. In doing all of this, I really understood how to eat the right way, not only to achieve some fantastic weight loss but also how to eat and maintain it going forward.*

This was very important for me as my family and I recently took a truly amazing trip to Spain. I’m not going to lie, I was a bit nervous about being in a foreign country for 11 days. I knew that I couldn’t lean entirely on my Jenny Craig meal regimen.

And that was ok. This is what it’s all about, right? I had to put from all that I learned from my months with Jenny Craig; I had learned how to tackle this challenge and come out on top! In the weeks leading up the trip I made sure I was “in the zone.” I wanted to go into the trip looking good and being at my best (and lowest) weight.* That way, I could be confident and content in Spain. I wanted to go there and enjoy myself.

Spain is known for having wonderful food. It was better than I thought it would be! With the tips my consultant shared with me, I got to enjoy myself and still stay on track. The key for me was sticking as much to the right formula as I could. For example, I brought Jenny Craig breakfasts (like the bars), protein snack bars, and protein shakes along for the trip. They didn’t have to be refrigerated or frozen, so it was easy to pack and tote along on every tour and every turn. It kept me focused and kept me in the right frame of mind. It was the perfect little boost for me so that I would never be ravenous and I could still enjoy all that wonderful jamon, bocadillos, tapas, wine, and more! Plus, we walked a ton and I made sure to go for another hour walk every night after everyone else was in bed. It was great because people in the city are up all night. Dinner starts around 9 or 10PM in Spain, so the late night walks helped!

When I returned, I already had my  Jenny Craig food stocked up and ready to go! I stepped on that scale and was relieved to know that I only gained one pound! With all that fun, all that living, and all that amazing Spanish food, that was a huge win. Period. I was so happy. Thankfully, all that I’ve learned from the meal plan and my weekly consultant meeting really set me on the path to success! When I went to my meeting the following week, my consultant was really pleased with how well I did and how much I loved the trip. She was really helpful in getting me ready for the trip and for encouraging me before and after. There’s no pressure during these one-on-one meetings. I go every Saturday morning at 8AM (sometimes even 7AM) so that I have my weekend ahead of me. This was a big key for me and I am so grateful for the guidance and encouragement.

Spain was the best trip we have ever taken. What an amazing place and what an amazing experience. With the help and structure of Jenny Craig, I’m still on track and on pace to achieve my ultimate weight loss goal.* Feels good, man.
