The secret? DON'T GIVE UP.

Hey there! My name is Jen, and I'm a 32 year-old mom and wife. I'm on a mission to lose 50 pounds.

The last time I looked and felt truly great was in college (2000-2004). I was about 110 lbs and fit into a size 0/2. My goal is to get back to that weight and happiness again.

Hey there! My name is Jen, and I'm a 32 year-old mom and wife. I'm on a mission to lose 50 pounds.

The last time I looked and felt truly great was in college (2000-2004). I was about 110 lbs and fit into a size 0/2. My goal is to get back to that weight and happiness again. Every year since I graduated, my weight has consistently gone up. When I begin a weight loss plan and have success, I always seem to eventually give up, overeat, and gain the weight back - plus more. I also had a baby in 2012, and while I initially lost most of the weight I gained during pregnancy, I've gained so much more in the past year becoming a stay-at-home mom. I'm at my highest weight ever right now - 165 lbs.

Spark People is truly the tool I need to stay on track. I love connecting with others on their weight-loss journeys, especially those who are also moms or struggling with a similar weight loss goal. Please reach out to me if you'd like to connect! :)

Personal Information:
I'm a stay-at-home mom and love taking care of my 2 year-old son. I love to organize and am always trying something new that I saw on Pinterest. I really enjoy running outside (except in the cold) and I'm an Ohio State Buckeyes fan. I earned my BA in Organizational Communication from Wright State University in 2004, where I met my awesome husband.

Other Information:
This quote motivates me so much:

"Your dreams are as hungry as your demons. Make sure you are feeding the right ones."

I am so glad to see you back Sparking! There were such kind people on here that commented on my page regularly while I was gone....coming back would have been harder without them. Please please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you. The healing process is slow and sometimes painful. Please take good care of yourself. Welcome back!!!
