My Tips of the Scale Interview

In January, I was approached by Tips of the Scale who asked if I would talk a little bit about my weight loss journey. I was truly honored to be asked even though I wasn't sure what I could offer; most days I feel like I am just fumbling around still trying to figure things out. But if I have learned anything, it is that I will be on this crazy ride for the rest of my life. And even though some days I’m frustrated as Hell…I cannot imagine going back and living the unhealthy life I had; the one that literally weighed on me every minute of every day. I am the happiest, healthiest and strongest I have ever been.
SO, I am beyond scared and nervous and a little bit excited to share that interview with all of you…I mean, I’m putting it all out there. However, if there is another thing that I have discovered on this little jaunt to healthiness, it is that somehow, someway I keep uncovering strength that I never thought existed. If I can help just one person who may be on their own journey, sharing my story is worth it. Don’t give up; don’t ever give up…fight. YOU are worth it.



  1. Jen, your story and pictures are so inspirational! You're right, you ARE worth it. I'm just starting my own weight loss journey (I need to lose 170) and I've put myself out there. I hope you will feel free to check in on my progress and offer any feedback! www.thepickledginger.com

    I look forward to reading more from you!


  2. You rock, Jen! Keep up the fantastic work. -Sam

  3. jenn, I loved your TOTS interview. I have subscribed to your blog but see that you are taking a break from blogging. Remember, people need to get a picture of the journey, which sometimes may be "boring" but it is REAL. I am currently plateaued at 135# lost, actually have gained 3# the last month. SO I am in RED alert warning. I am creating my Motivation and you and Sam stated. I was thinking I have LOST my motivation but that is passive and I am not embracing passive. This is my journey and I need to get to know my body as you said. What does my body need to lose weight? That is the mystery right now.
    I also had PCOS, now 10 years after an emergency hysterectomy. I have 5 children after 10 years of infertility treatments. If you want to connect on these issues let me know.
    You have inspired me Jenn. You have stuff to share with people. Your journey is authentic an people need that, not the slick packaged stuff out there. Please let us know how you are. You ARE worth it. Dee in Ohio bingersinger@gmail.com
