Jayne Kennedy's Quotes

  • [on her contract] I wasn't psyched to do it because I had tried so many diets and . . . I felt that no diet works without exercise.
  • I didn't feel that I was a good example to my children because I always taught them how important it is to be in shape, and I didn't feel like I was the best that I could be in my marriage.
  • [on her diagnosis of endometriosis] Finally my doctor said, "I'm going to have you tested for endometriosis. Don't worry about it, you probably don't have it but let's run the test anyway". We did an ultrasound and he said, "Yup, you have it". That was the first time I heard of endometriosis.
  • [In 2001] In the early '80s I had an exercise video called "Love Your Body" with music by The Commodores, which was third in the market after Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons. I had a contract with Coke for Tab and Diet Coke. We did the tie-in with fitness and diet drinks. Everything was going so well. Then, quickly, it got to a point where I couldn't even do a sit-up. The pain was so debilitating.
  • [on how she felt about reaching her goal] I feel so much better about myself since I took off the weight, being in shape is so important to feeling good and being healthy . . . Right now I'm feeling good about this diet and, most important, I'm feeling good about myself again.
