Hi, I'm Jenny! I'm 30 and I work on a college campus (yay cafeteria food!). My go-to exercise is running. I'm obsessed with Royals baseball.

February 2018 - Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Fly Eagles Fly - since the Chiefs aren't in it. Time to reset some goals and focus on eating healthier and exercising regularly. My town's weight loss competition was canceled this year but it doesn't mean I can't still win big. I signed up for a DietBet challenge today. Starting at 168 - I'd love to get to the 130s by summer.

October 2017 - Stress. I've had a lot of it with work and I definitely haven't addressed it with nutritious eating or exercise. Time to get it going again. My goal is to be down about 25 pounds by the end of January - so I don't have to embarrass myself by competing (and winning) the work weight loss competition...AGAIN.

January 2017 - Time to lose some weight...again! I'm on a weight loss team at work for the next 10 weeks. I'm in this to win it all the way! Every time I've been successful, I can credit it to SparkPeople, so here I am again. My best friend Sarah is also joining me on this journey. Accountability is key! Let's do this!

April 2016 - I did well for about 5 weeks in January, and then Spring Break came, I splurged, and spiraled downhill. So here I am again, getting back on track! I'm in a wedding in about six weeks, and I need to fit into my dress...that's motivation!

January 2016 - My previous weight loss efforts were derailed by the passing of my grandfather, which threw my life out of whack for a while. I'm establishing a routine and participating in my town's company weight loss challenge for the fourth year in a row. The goal is to make this the last year I participate!

September 2015 - I haven't updated this in a long time! I am sad to say that I have reverted to my former weight of 160 pounds. So I'm starting this weight loss journey again. Let's motivate each other!

April 2014 - I have achieved my goal weight of 135 lb! Now the real work of maintaining begins. One of my best friends is getting married next January, and she asked me to be her maid of honor! I am beyond excited! I want to buy my dress soon, which makes maintaining my weight so important. Can't gain my usual 20 comfort food pounds when winter/holidays roll around at the end of the year!
