6 Things You Didn’t Know About Our Founder, Jenny Craig

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.

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.

What Is a Bullet Journal and How Can It Help You Stick to Your Weight Loss Goals?

You’ve probably heard of food journaling and how it can help you identify habits that aren’t serving your health, but have you ever tried creating a bullet journal? The bullet journaling trend, also called “BuJo,” first took off a few years ago (simply search #bulletjournal on Instagram to see what we mean!). 


So, what is a bullet journal, exactly? Think of it as a combination of a day planner and diary that helps you organize both your professional and personal lives, and serves as a creative outlet, too. It can be an incredible tool for helping you organize (and stick to) your weight loss goals — research shows you’re 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down regularly.1 All you need to get started is a bullet journal notebook, which can be anything you can write on, from a basic spiral notebook to a fancy planner.
