Spencer here, from Maryland Healthy Weighs. I just want to reach out to you so you know how we are handling the situation with the Coronavirus, and how we intend to support you during this time.
There are two options we want everyone to be aware of, whether they are currently involved in one of our programs, or whether they are considering getting involved in one: We can ship the Meal Replacements to you, and we are offering Remote Options to participate in our group coaching from home
FOR FREE until the in person groups are up and running again.
1. We can ship the Meal Replacements to you.
We will keep the office open for normal business hours as long as we can for anyone that has an emergency and needs food, but we would prefer to ship the Meal Replacements whenever possible. We have a large portion of our clientele that are elderly or that have health concerns, and we want to limit our risk of spreading the virus as much as possible.
Things to know:
-You can order by calling the office directly (443-205-4421) or online (
). Please do not email an order that you want shipped without confirming that we have received it. We do not want any orders to be delayed because we did not receive them properly. www.MHWonline.com
-We are only shipping the Meal Replacements at this time. We want to make sure everyone has the essentials first. Therefore, we are not shipping any spices, salad dressings, or cookbooks. We can help you find an alternate source for these if you need them.
-Deliveries ship from HMR’s national distribution center and typically take 2-3 business days to arrive. Please make sure you will not run out of food while you are waiting for your next shipment. We recommend having at least a week’s worth of Meal Replacements on hand when you make each order.
-There will be a shipping charge of $11.95 applied to each order under $225. Part of the reason we are offering the group coaching for
FREE during this time is to offset these shipping costs.
-We will still honor the military and first responder discounts on orders made by calling our office.
2. We are offering Remote Options to participate in our group coaching from home FOR FREE until the in person groups are up and running again.
Things to know:
-Our main groups will be run through a program called Zoom. This can be accessed through any computer with a webcam and microphone, or through a smartphone, iPad or tablet. For instructions on getting set up, please view this
or contact our office. These groups will be held at the same time, and have the same outline as our regular in-person groups: YouTube video playlist
Phase 1: Tues 5:30-6:30 PM and Thurs 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Phase 2: Mon 5:30-6:30 PM and Thurs 9:00-10:00 AM
For clarification on what each group entails, and to get enrolled in a group if you are not already, please contact our office.
-If you are not capable of attending a group via webcam we will also offer an option over conference call, without the visual component. This group will be held through HMR national. To enroll in one of these groups, follow this link to the HMR website:
