Please tell me that Sherry Stern didn't spend her own money on a weekend escape to Ojai for $1,257.32 ("Fit, but Not Fanatic," Feb. 19). She wrote, "The prospect of $400 a night for the two of us seemed high. But when you consider that staying home would have been another step toward buying new clothes in bigger sizes, then the price seemed downright reasonable." How much weight could Ms. Stern and her husband possibly lose in their few days of aqua aerobics and morning walks? If each lost two pounds, that's $300 a pound. What about spending that $1,200 on home exercise equipment or low-fat, nutritious foods? Please bring back the sensible Weekend Escapes!
