This International Women’s Day, we’re honoring our founder, Jenny Craig.
Since 1959, Jenny Craig has been helping members change their lives by teaching them how to build a healthy relationship with food. The story begins with Mrs. Craig herself as she struggled with weight loss after the birth of her second child. She was ready to lose weight, but realized she did not have good options to help her reach her goal. Through a combination of diet and exercise, she was able to get back to her pre-baby weight — but realized that there wasn’t much information on the dangers of obesity and lifestyle changes that could help.
