I love love love the new Beauty and the Beast movie. One of the best parts, of course, is the Beast’s library, so I wrote “Belle Would Be Enchanted by These 10 Lovely Libraries in Hotels” for USA Today 10Best.

Jenny Craig goodies

I love Jenny Craig!

I’ve lost 20 pounds since starting the program at the end of January — despite the fact that I’ve been on a lot of press trips, including two weeks in France.

Even though I’m not sick of the food at all — my daily meals usually consist of Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast, Cheesy Potatoes and Chicken for lunch, and Chicken Carbonara or Mesquite Chicken for dinner — I’m thrilled that Jenny has introduced five new dishes that are all DELICIOUS.

My favorite is the Lemon Garlic Shrimp, which I’ve eaten almost every night this week!

The Chicken Pesto Pasta is also yummy and filling.

I only got a taste of the Roasted Vegetable Lasagna because my daughter, who’s a vegetarian, stole them from me, but I will definitely be ordering more.

One reason Jenny Craig seems so easy to me is because I know I get to have a great dessert every night. As someone with a major sweet tooth, this is a really big deal and I look forward to it all day. I lived on Triple Chocolate Cheesecake for months but finally switched it up a little with the Chocolate Cakes and Chocolate Walnut Brownie. Now, I’ve been feasting on the new Vanilla Buttercream Cupcakes, which taste decadent!

Because I still need to have my chocolate fix, though, I’m so happy about the new Chocolate Muffins for breakfast! I just throw one in my bag so it’s thawed by the time I finish playing tennis in the morning. Yum!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask away. Maybe we can even meet over cupcakes 🙂

  1. Congrats on your success with this program. It’s helpful to see photos of the food. When I talk with women in midlife, they all seem to find weight management a bit of a challenge. Thanks for sharing a success! That’s very encouraging.

  2. I LOVE lemon with seafood. So that lemon garlic shrimp sure looks good …. I’m glad Jenny Craig is working well for you!!

  3. That’s nice Jenny is working so good for you. That cupcake sure looks fancy.

  4. Woo-hoo! Congrats on the 20 pounds dropped!

    I think I’d love the lemon shrimp followed by the cupcake! Yum! Just may need to try it. (I certainly could afford to drop several pounds!)

    Keep up the momentum! You’re an inspiration.

  5. It all looks super yummy to me!

  6. Wow what a great accomplishment! It looks like this really works for you and that is good. They must have a great variety of different foods too.

  7. You are amazing. I don’t know how you can do all the traveling you do and keep the weight off–I gain weight with every vacation, but kudos to you–and Jenny Craig.

  8. Congrats on your weight loss. That is the way to do it. At a normal pace and eating good food. I have heard others that have said they have had good results with Jenny Craig.

  9. How yummy are those cupcakes. I need to get back on an affordable program.

  10. I’ve thought long and hard about joining Jenny Craig. I recently learned of a Gluten and Dairy intolerance, so I wont be doing Jenny Craig. I’m pretty disappointed. These meal options look really tasty!

  11. Congrats on your success so far. I have heard great things about Jenny Craig. Based on your photos I think I need to sign up.

  12. Yum it all looks so good! Congrats on the 20lbs. That is so amazing. With food like this everyone should be hopping on Jenny!

  13. I didn’t know they had such good choices! I’m so happy to see some of the offerings. I especially love that roasted lasagna!

  14. Jenny Craig is a great program for losing weight. I think the fact that the meals are already prepared and that there is so much support throughout the process makes members more successful.

  15. I like how the serving sizes are already set for you and that you get to eat chocolate carbs for breakfast every day:) I noticed there wasn’t much protein or fruit is the diet mostly carbs?

    • Lois Alter Mark says:

      Oh, there’s a lot of protein. All kinds of chicken, beef, turkey and fish choices for all meals. I always have protein in my lunch and dinner, and you’re allowed fruits in between. I didn’t show them here because they’re just regular fruit!

  16. CONGRATS!! Great work. I have not tried Jenny Craig but that food looks amazing!

  17. I remember Jenny Craig from a long time ago, this is really great; the serving sizes are very proper!

  18. I was on Jenny Craig many years ago and It was tasty. I am on weight watchers now both great programs

  19. Congrats on your weight loss: 20 pounds is a lot of weight. I love those shrimp noodles. They look tasty

  20. I never knew about this before. I have to check this out – oh and congratss!!!
