My name is Jen and I am a 27 year old mother of two. I am married to my highschool sweetheart who also has a weight problem of his own...he can't seem to gain! He is 6'3" and barely weighs 160 pounds. Unlike him, I have always had the opposite problem. I can't seem to keep it off. I have always been heavy. I was almost a 10 pound baby when born and from there on, weight was always an issue. In high school, I got some motivation from a friend and lost about 80 pounds. The weight slowly began to creep back on as time went by. I would lose some, then gain some. It came alot more difficult after my second baby. I had put on alot of weight with that pregnancy and couldn't fit into any clothes....not even my "fat" clothes. I became very depressed and just felt really bad all of the time. I knew I had to do something, so I recruited my Mother in Law to become my exercise buddy. When we first started in June, I wouldn't even weigh myself until 2 weeks into it. I didn't want to see that huge number! So far we have been going strong. I have lost a total of 66 pounds so far (to my best knowledge because I didn't weigh myself at first). I want to lose another5-10 pounds to finally reach a weight I think I will be happy with. I feel and look so much better and love all the compliments I get. That pushes me to keep going.....oh and the exercise buddy helps too. Someone to keep you going when you don't want to and a little competition is always good too! So I just need to finally finish what I have started for once!

    Jen,
    Welcome to the Biggest Loser fan site. I just had to post KUDOS to you for your weight loss. Keep it up, you are doing great!

    I, too, lost almost all the weight and then put it almost all back on again. So, here I am to loose it one last time!

    Wouldn't it be great if you could just take that excess weight and donate it to hubby? LOL...
    God's blessings..
