By now you know I’m doing the Jenny Craig Rapid Results Program. I’m in the process of making myself and my health a priority and setting a good example for my daughter. There is nothing like hearing your child say, “Mommy, I’m so proud of you!” It’s amazing knowing my daughter believes that I can succeed.


I just finished week two of the Jenny Craig Program and I’ve lost 6.2 pounds in so far (average weight loss 1-2 lbs/week for members following the program). My clothes are getting loose. I’m seeing definite definition in my waist and the best part, I have more energy. Energy to go for walks, lift weights, try new fitness classes and keep up with my daughter.


Did you know your metabolism isn’t a constant? I didn’t. In fact, it’s one of the many things I’m learning on the Jenny Craig Program. 

Your metabolism is a curve, rising in the morning, peaking midday, and lessening in the evening. The Rapid Results Program follows the curve, giving you more calories to consume when you’re burning the most. This accelerates the weight loss for faster results. 

Your day is split into two parts, nourishment and rejuvenation. Nourishment is when you eat all your calories, over a 12-hour period. Rejuvenation, also over 12-hours, and mostly while you’re asleep, is when your body restores itself. This is when your body fat, especially belly fat, disappears, while retaining your muscle mass. All I know is it’s working and I never feel hungry.

Science-based weight loss, one of the many reasons why Jenny Craig has been a successful program for over 34 years.

Success rates grow with support. Not only do I have the support of my daughter and my co-workers, I have Melody, my Jenny Craig Personal Consultant. It’s like having my own personal cheerleader, cheering me on, believing in me, and encouraging me every step of the way.

Melody and I talk, or meet, at least once a week. She’s always a phone call away. She eagerly listens to all my questions and celebrates all my wins. We discuss any challenges I might face in the week to come, and map out a plan to succeed.


Jenny Craig’s DNA Decoder Plan measures 15 different markers, that offer insight into five key areas associated with your DNA.

  • How Your Body Processes Food
  • How Your Body Responds to Exercise
  • Your Sleep Quality
  • Your Eating Behaviors
  • Your Metabolism

My DNA determined the best weight loss plan for me and I’m excited to share my results with you over the next few weeks.

As Jenny Craig says, “You may not be able to change your DNA – but you can change your habits to help improve your health.”

I believe I can succeed and because of that, I will.
