Burn more calories than you eat. Eat less calories than you burn. Calories In - Calories Out = Weight Loss/Weight Gain. There are lots of ways to say it, one way to do it. Eat less than your body requires. Period. The End. So simple... Read more

I haven't lost a pound in six weeks. Or more accurately, I have lost 4 pounds, but it was because I bounced from 265 to 269 and down again. I love yoga. I love the way I feel when I do yoga. I would do it every single day if I could mak... Read more

It's really easy to hate on your body, but that's not good for your mind or your body. I am as guilty as the next person. I could write 100,000 words on all the ways I hate my body, or more accurately, what I have done to my body. My body is ... Read more

If a blog could have a soundtrack, this one would be read to Right Said Fred's song I'm Too Sexy. A small sampling of the things I've learned in 2011: 1. I can make salsa, using tomatoes from my own garden. Read more

Losing tonnage isn't just about taking off pounds. It's nice to shed fat rolls and look all major hotness in a swimsuit, I get that, but I would say it's a little bit about the pounds and a whole lot of working on what's between your ears. Te... Read more

This is my nephew, Eli. He was born Monday. I refer to him as "The Cute Factory" for obvious reasons. 8 months ago his mother was afraid to give me her good news, feari... Read more

I created a spark team today and I'm totally jazzed about it. Giddy and recharged and feeling full of weight loss energy. Seriously, I am. I'm so stoked that I'm not even mad at myself for only having 450 calories left for the day at 2:30 in ... Read more

Dear Macy's, I'd like to personally thank you for having a "women's department." Please note that I'm using this term very loosely. You see, your "women's department" is depressing and makes me feel like the old fat Jenn I used to be. In... Read more

Friday, September 09, 2011      48 comments

So I bought an outrageously expensive ($65) yoga mat because I was afraid I was going to injure myself doing yoga. Imagine a oiled up fat girl trying to do yoga on a Slip N Slide, and that's what it was like. How was I supposed to balance on on... Read more

It's true. For a minute there, I felt like Wonder Woman. I didn't feel like that weird, badly dressed new Wonder Woman that lasted for like 2 episodes, I felt like the grande dame of all Wonder Women, Lynda Carter. The one with the swanky gol... Read more

So I'm struggling. My new fancy yoga mat, my lemony gifts to myself and all the wishing in the world can't change that. Random FYI: I will probably be talking to the girl at the gym I wrote about last week. I will do it on my term... Read more

I have a tendency to let my hair and caterpillars (eyebrows) go. The man hair on the chin bugs the crap out of me, so I stay right on top of that, and the legs too, since I'm in the pool a lot. But the hair, well, the hair totally gets hosed i... Read more

There is a woman at the gym that most people probably notice, but not for good reasons. No, she isn't the supermodel that I wrote about a few months ago, the one who was so gorgeous that it was hard not to stare. In fact, aside from being tall... Read more

I had a plan. All of my horror stories start that way, with a plan. What's that saying about men plan and God laughs? Like that, that's how my plans go. Badly. Yet still I persist in the planning. Silly Jenn. Today I had a plan. I was... Read more

Dear Self, After having only a tiny smattering of dairy for the last 17 weeks your body has changed. Having a steamed milk with vanilla syrup last night, no matter how low in fat, was a very bad idea. You have a textbook case of lac... Read more
