So I'm thinking of doing Jenny Craig. It's one of the last one's I haven't tried. I did Weight Watchers but this time around I want something I don't have to think about right now. I need something that's prettyu simple and JC sounds like what I'm looking for. I'm just worried about the food. I'm not a tv dinner type of girl, so I'm wondering if the food is good. Can someone let me know Thanks!

Hi, I also did WW and wanted to try something else...

I joined JC almost 1 month ago and I'm down 14.8#!!

I like the foods, the frozen entrees more so than the shelf-stable ones. It does have a lot of the old WW personal selection plan if you ever did that.
There are protein, fruit, etc lists.

I'm very glad I tried it, I'm very happy!

I also joined Jenny a few weeks ago and am down 8ish pounds. The food is REALLY good I find the variety very satisfying.
I joined Jenny Direct but am going to try to flip to the local center, I find the phone consults annoying. I actually like the group support of Weight Watchers and went for years unfortunately just didn't lose any weight.
Jenny has put me on auto-pilot with my eating and I like the exchange program.

Hey guys!

I am a chatter on the LAWL (LA Weightloss) forum as I am a former client. I REALLY want to do JC, but am afraid of the $. DH and I just bought our first house, and finances are tough right now. I just want the whole "auto-pilot" thing too!

I just need to work on DH... maybe a candle-lit dinner, rose petals... yeah, you get the point!

Welcome! I'm so happy to have other people here! I've been on JC since November 4th - I'm down 21.6#s! I still can't believe it!

It's really worth it for me, because I live in NYC and eating out everyday is much more than the $7 or so for a JC dinner. I've been very happy.

I'd love to hear about your exeperiences!
Good luck!

AMY -- LAWL Girl!!!

I am also a former LAWL client who fell terribly after the centers closed (along with a LOT of my money!) I have also been toying with the idea of joining JC but am worried about the cost as well as the fact that my husband and 2 kids -- 22 and 14 -- will be on their own for dinners!! Have you tried WW? I have tried in the past and lost soooo slowly that I gave up. "When you decide check back here!!! Happy New Year!

I have been doing JC for about 3-1/2 years. I have currently lost 50 lbs. I had reached my goal and then decided to lose another 5 lbs. Well that never happened and since then I have put on 8 more lbs. In all that time I have not quit, since I know the alternative would have been much worse. I prefer using the Jenny meals, since I like the food, the convenience and the fact that I know what I'm eating has been portioned for what I need to eat.

With the new year, I've decided I am going to lose the extra weight I've added, as well as the extra five pounds I wanted to lose before. That means 13.6 lbs.

Hopefully there are others who can help motivate me and hopefully I can help others!

Well I've been struggling to get back to good eating habits. I had all the best intentions, like others this time of year, but the excessive snacking is getting to me.

I am still determined and am trying hard not to be discouraged. This, too will pass.

Congratulations, Beth, on the great success. You must really feel good.

I just completed my first week on JC and had my first WI tonight. Already down 4 pounds! Woohoo! I LOVE the food. I am an extremely picky eater, and normally don't like frozen TV dinner type food, but I'm truly extremely happy with the food quality, taste and texture. The JC food is waaaaay better than Lean Cuisine, SmartOnes, etc. I'm a former LAWL'er, and I like JC much better. The huge downside is that it is expensive...so we'll see how long I can afford the program.
