Jenny O’Brien Kinsella is a native of County Cavan where she still lives and works. Following her own weight loss of 5 stone and dramatic lifestyle changes over 20 years ago, Jenny has gone on to work in and build-up 19 years of professional experience in weight management.
She has devised her own unique weight management programme WeightMatters with Jenny so that you too can reach a healthy weight and begin feeling your best again.
WeightMatters is conscious of the busy lifestyle and schedule that people lead nowadays.
The programme is tailored so you can make healthier food choices and enjoy doing so. It’s about making simple changes that you can carry with you, over the long-term, giving you sustainable weight loss together with lifelong strategies for healthy eating and living for you and your family.
Having taken the journey myself, losing five stone 20 years ago and maintaining this weight loss over that time, I know and understand what is needed for you to achieve your own personal goals. I know that dramatic weight loss is rarely sustained, that significant weight loss takes time to achieve. That is why in WeightMatters I focus on medium to long-term goal setting. I also feel rewards are an important incentive so this is why I have introduced a 10lbs award as a stepping stone to your first stone landmark.
I believe healthy habits and lifestyle changes happen over a period of time and won’t happen easily. Health and wellness is a journey and not a destination. This is why in WeightMatters I constantly encourage you to continue to believe in yourself and your ability to lose weight for good. To gain weight doesn’t mean you are a failure, it’s means you are trying.
It’s my belief healthy eating shouldn’t be difficult, but there may be times when you find it harder to make healthy choices or stick to your goals. That’s also fine, like anything new, healthy eating is a learning process. If you’ve eaten in a certain way for a long time, it will take a bit of adjusting and there will be times when it may feel easier to go back to your old habits.
Being mindful of what you are eating plays a large part in losing weight, this is why I am an advocate of eating in a relaxed atmosphere with no distractions such as phones, t.v or newspapers. Pay particular attention to each bite that you eat and listening to your tummies signals of satiety and satisfaction.
