At least I tried!

I really thought I might be able to engage Jenny Craig in our journey. Wouldn't it be great to show that ALL people can benefit from set meals, portion control and a dedicated nutritionist. Isn't this the best idea EVER, and also allows me to replace my refrigerator (per my previous post).

Here was the response I received when I emailed the corporate office on Tuesday:

Thank you for your recent interest in Jenny Craig.

We read, with empathy, your e-mail, and truly wish we were able to make programs or food available free of charge or discounted, based on need.  Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests we receive, we are unable to provide such programs - but we continue to work to make our program more flexible so it can be available to the greatest number of people.

You may want to try working with a Registered Dietitian that specializes in weight management.  The American Dietetic Association has a referral number you can call: 1-800-366-1655.  They can provide you with the name of a registered dietitian that works in your area.

We invite you to visit our Web site,, to learn more about the Program options we offer today.

Good luck to you . and if you do decide to try our Program, please write again and let us know how you are doing. We would love to read Margaret's success story.

Best wishes on your weight management goals,

PS I did get a follow-up email acknowledging that is was my daughter not me who was interested in the diet...


  1. Get her a guy personal trainer. It will be cheaper then Jenny Craig in the long run. You don't have to be involved with her exercise/training program that way. It's just her and her trainer. After April started going once a week to the gym with her trainer and then she went several times more by herself. I am finding with my kids that less Mom and more help from others is helping BOTH of us!

    1. I agree....I am definitely a detractor, and nothing would beat a handsome trainer...That's a great idea...she does walk two days a week with a friend and yoga once a week, as well as riding, but one on one would certainly make a difference - I am going to look into. Thanks!

  2. Beth's doctor has recommended a dietitian. We definitely have to make changes around here but unfortunately Beth isn't very thrilled about them.


Thanks for your note, we love hearing from you!
