I've done Jenny Criag a few times over my dieting career. The first time I lost about 35 pounds and the 2nd time I lost about 25 pounds. The great thing about Jenny Craig is that it's a quick and easy way to control your portion sizes. The food tasted pretty good. The biggest problem with Jenny Craig as with most diets out there is that you ALWAYS gain the weight back. I do not know one person who has lost weight on Jenny Craig, Nurtrisystems or even Weight Watchers and have kept the weight off. Unfoturenately it's not the loosing the weight part that most people have problems with but instead the keeping it off part that is the biggest challenge. I have lost and gained over 200 pounds over my lifetime and I finally got to a place where I had to focus on the keeping it off part. I just got a lap band put in 9 days ago. I decided on the lap band because I need to focus on keeping the weight I loose off for good. I wish you much success in what ever solution you try.
