Worked with a girl that part-timed at Jenny Craig as a member consultant. All she did was complain about how fat people should just stop eating. Don't they screen their help?

Every day is a new beginning! Carpe Diem!

SP teaches us to eat healthy. Jenny Craig sells you pre-portioned food. We need to learn food and portion control for ourselves and by our selves.

WE CAN DO IT!

Thanks for the reply, so quickly, Coach Jen. I don't usually read blogs, so I naturally missed this one. Chris' rationale, I understand, as well as the economics of running the site, but it's still deplorable for a site that encourages--was built on--free self-enablement to partner w/ an enterprise that sells the same goal.
I'm still a staunch SP supporter, but I admit my support grows less general, more particular.
Again, thanks for reply & link.

This blog from our founder and CEO, Chris Downie, explains why we have branding partners like Jenny Craig on our site. Hopefully this offers a little insight into how we make these kinds of decisions.

WHY? SP had such integrity, getting involved w/ such a commercial venture is startling--& disappointing. Guess it explains some the ads for gimmicks tho.
Sorry to see it.

We do currently have a sponsorship with Jenny Craig.

Hi all. Been awhile since I have been on the site. Fell off the wagon & recently joined Weight Watchers and am checking her periodically as needed. Just wanted to see if this site is now partnered with Jenny Craig as I see the name everywhere.

NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS BEING HEALTHY & HAPPY FEELS!!!
