“Before working with Jenny, I felt kind of hopeless about losing weight and being happy in my body.
I had been yo-yo dieting, gaining and losing weight for over 10 years, and after every half success I’d revert back to old habits, adding a couple extra more pounds, and having more even difficulties losing it the next time around.
I was really at a low point and felt as though my body was simply broken, like I was meant to be the big girl in the group.
I had just about given up.
And I was so out of shape that I injured myself running a half marathon. I couldn’t believe that I could train for a half marathon for over a year and still look the same – Big and soft.
So I tried dieting by counting calories and trying to figure out macros – how confusing!
After that I tried Atkins and a half attempt at Weight Watchers.
But it didn’t make any difference since none of it was really tailored to my needs and it was never a way of eating I could see myself doing for a prolonged period of time.
It was always a quick fix with some weight loss but after a few short weeks the weight would be back on my body.
I decided being big was just my new constant companion hoping that nobody would notice if I just hide it well enough by creatively disguising my body with clothing – I had a closet full of sad clothes.
Shopping was an absolute nightmare and I avoided mirrors at all cost.
It was a very unhappy time for me. So much energy was wasted because I simply didn’t have the knowledge of what I should eat, and how much is enough for my body and in what portions.
Jenny taught me that food is not the enemy, and exercise should never be used to punish yourself for the bad eating decisions you made.
It is the habits you have created and fostered surrounding food, and your relationship with it that really matters.
I used to be so goal orientated on just losing weight so dieted by restricting foods too aggressively and always reverted back to bad habits that weren’t serving me anymore because I would diet with such harsh restriction.
With this nutrition program, I felt like I had control over my eating habits – I knew exactly how much to eat, knew how to make adjustments to my plan, had plenty of food variety, and was able to enjoy myself on weekends.
I lost over 42 lbs including 8 inches around my belly button and 7 inches off of my hips.
Here I am over 1 year later throwing away all of my sad clothes because the weight is still off.
No rebound here.
I’m healthy, happy, and I know exactly how to stay lean.”
