Half truths. I think we all do it to ourselves at some point. It is easier to lie to ourselves than face the truth. It’s hard not to. Lies are prettier, more attractive than the truth. But, Jenn, you’re on the right track because you realize what you’re doing. You can turn things around, but you’ve got to be ready to do it. ❤

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks Jules 💕💕💕

Nene Naturally says:

Hugs – I know the struggle. Thanks for being transparent.

Leslie Rhodes says:

Jenn, if your ready you can do this! I believe in you! I have done every diet there is out there and now I am doing Weight Watchers. It keeps me accountable because I know I have to weigh in. I’m also doing this journey with my cousin and that has helped me. But I know how hard it is to be a mom and to take care of yourself. Dont do what I did. My daughter is 12 yrs old and I’m just now taking time to lose the weight with diet and exercise. I still have days where I go over my points but tomorrow is a new day. Its ok! Also, I have found a local business that makes healthy foods for $6 a meal. Look for something like that if you dont have time to prepare your meals. I have been doing that and its helping me! I only buy 4 meals a week and I prepare the rest of my meals. A quick dinner would be a tuna packet with olive oil mayo and some veggie chips. I eat that if I do not have anything prepared for dinner. I was 254lbs for so many yrs and feel like I missed out alot!! I’m now down to 222lbs and I’m looking forward to getting to my goal 175 by next summer. Join me, I know how down you are inside but our kids and husband keeps us happy on the outside. I get it! Hugs to you. Small steps, just change 1 meal at a time if it causes you anxiety like it did me.

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks Leslie 💕💕💕

Ashley Bows says:

It’s such a struggle , it’s so hard after losing 80 lbs and here I am sabotaging myself constantly . I’ve told you this a million time before but our story is identical . We both lost the same amount of weight the same way. I’ve noticed that I’m addicted to food especially carbs and sugar . My husband told me yesterday that he sees the sadness in my eyes when I have to buy new clothes or when we have a party to go to and I need to dress up. I used to love shopping and I used to Love dressing up .

Just remember we did this once and we can do this again . Please keep us updated vlog again

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks Ashley. I have that sadness and anxiety about buying clothes and going to functions

Liz Dixon says:

So glad you’re posting again! Missed your videos and love watching the journey of ups and downs!

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks girl! 💕💕💕

Val Victoria Nelson says:

Jenn you did it before and you can do it again! I believe in you!

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks girl! 💕💕💕

I think you need discomfort. You need the sweat, the painful back. It’s easier to make you think of your goals. Comfort makes you forget and put it off. Honestly we will procrastinate til out face is in the mud. You need discomfort.

Natural 235 says:

Have you heard the first 5 mins of this videos? It’s all about the pains of discomfort. Then you turn it around of getting inspiration from past weight experiences. What a wonderful idea. I almost think we get stuck in such a mind set and obsess about the troubles we are in. It takes 21 days to make a habit. It’s starts with the mind. Inspiration them motivation.

Natural 235 says:

It’s not stupid. When we strive for perfection we are doing this because of the other areas in life that are out of control.

Jenn's Journey says:

YES!!!! To everything you said, just YES! 💕💕💕

Natural 235 says:

It this point the end result of happiness from eating great is important and lasts longer then a moment of taste. I have trouble of going back on track if I mess up during the day.

Nina Iskierski says:

Wear jeans that are tight. Look at yourself in the mirror in the morning and want to change. Watch your videos to get motivated etc.. you can do it mama!!

Randy R says:

It’s ok to feel the way you are, it’s totally normal. You’re on the cusp of a big change whether you know it or not. Try to make just 1 change, maybe something related to food? Healthier, leaner or say no to junk food, just for today. Once you feel you have a grip on that practice it for a while, get good at it. Then, when you’re ready, move on to the next healthly choice. Be kind to yourself you’ve made a lot of life changes since becoming a mom. 💖

Jenn's Journey says:

Excellent advice 💕💕💕

COgirl86 says:

Hi Jenn! Been following you for a while…and I have a lot of weight issues myself. Gained 100+ pounds in the past 12 years or so…tried losing weight probably 25+ times, and always failing. I finally got the motivation because of always being uncomfortable, hating myself, not sleeping, not being able to do things with my hubby and 2.5 year old daughter, being in physical pain all the time, etc. I joined Weight Watchers. The program now is so great and allows for flexibility and accountability. I’ve lost 30 pounds since the beginning of the year and feel great! I have 70 pounds to go, but I’m just taking it at my pace. I also only workout 2-3 times a week for 30-45 minutes and I am a part time stay at home Mom and I work part time too. I make the time for myself and stay accountable most of the time. I most importantly think it’s important to take things day by day. I hope you find the motivation to help yourself so you can be happier. Sending you good vibes! Hugs.

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks for sharing your story 💕

Sam Broughton says:

It’s so hard isn’t it jenn, I lost weight through illness but after being so overweight all my life I then enjoyed being what society sees as being a normal weight. I’ve got to the stage were I am scared of eating over my allotted calories because I only have to look at food and it goes on, as much as I am miserable with myself I can’t break out of the cycle I’ve got myself in of basically starving myself to stay slimmer. Losing weight is the easy part maintaining it and halving willpower is the worst for me. I said it yesterday day but I will say it again you have a brilliant personality, an adorable family and I hope you find your way when the times right for you my lovely 😊❤️ ‘

isacormier30 says:

Its hard to start all over! I think that the hardest part is knowing that you were already there…but now you have to do it all over. You are feeling guilty, bad and sad about the situation. You know what you could have done defferently not to gain the weight…. but once you start eating, you brain is like f**** this! Its only half way that the guilt appears. And then, you tell yourself that tomorrow will be the new start, but then Its starts all over again!!!!! Not cool, I know!!!! Weight loss is a Life time journey!!! LIFE time! Do it go for 3 days and you will already feel motivated! I will always struggle with my weight and I know the feeling of looking at yourself in the miror and not recognizing yourself 😢

Jenn's Journey says:

It’s sucks cause I was starting to feel beautiful and then so quick I’m back here again

isacormier30 says:

Jenn’s Journey You are still beautifull, but I totally get it!!! If you ever want to chat let me know. ☺️ It would be cool. I sooooo get it!

Alycia Hinderhofer says:

I am in the same rut. I am about to have my baby I am so ashamed of the number on the scale I don’t want anyone to know not even my husband. I am so scared that I will have no motivation to get the weight off when the baby arrives and that I will just continue to increase.

Cyndi Brown says:

I am a perfectionist too. I understand the struggle.

House of Hutton says:

Love watching your thought process – that sounds weird as you’re not having a good time right now, but it makes me feel normal as I could basically have made this video myself. Keep going Jenn! Never ever give up!

I know you have a gym in your building but there must be one locally which has some childcare? A couple of times a week I put my kids (8 months and 3 years) into the Creche at the gym for an hour. They love it and I get a really good workout in, either in the gym or doing a class. The rest of the week I either do a dvd or YouTube video in the day, gym/swim when my husband is around for childcare, or have a rest day. You have to think laterally/outside the box as a mum to make time for yourself – I didn’t realise that until my first was probably about a year old!

Off I pop to look up some ‘perfectionism and weight loss’ videos xx

Kimberly Moore says:

Could postpartum depression be another cause? Not saying you do have it, just wondering if that may be another reason for your “funk”? Please I don’t want to insult you or upset you, just thought that may be it’s another possibility? It’s a lot more common than we think, a friend of mine didn’t even realize she was going through it until she finally starting speaking about it. We are all here to support you.

Jenn's Journey says:

I don’t think it’s postpartum because I was asset by my doctor after birth. Also I felt super happy and well adjusted to Mom life unlike the women I know who had postpartum. I’m thinking I’m starting to feel depressed about how I look and feel even thought I’m laughing and smiling and joyful all day long with my son

Allison Krause | Love Our Life says:

A weight loss journey before kids is very different from a weight loss journey after kids. You are going to be a great mom, no matter what. I know we should put ourselves first but I don’t think that happens too much. SO be a great mom and get creative on how to be healthy too! For me I had to get comfortable with the idea I needed to get up super early to exercise. I didn’t want to do it. It’s not fair that other ppl don’t have to do it. But I do and it works for me. I also had to get comfortable with the fact I have to meal plan and I have cook even when I’m tired and there are other things I rather do. When your baby is small you can only do the best you can do – it will get easier as they get bigger.

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks Allison

Julie Morris says:

Absolutely. 100 percent agree. After my son was born I used to be jealous of people who had all this time to work out. My son was an extremely needy infant/toddler. It’s better now he’s 4. It took a while to find my groove

Julie Morris says:

I know how you feel. After having my son…it took a long time to “get there” again…you will. You Just Keep On Trying and It Will Get Easier.

Jenn's Journey says:

Thanks Julie!!!💕

Emily A says:

I swear we could be the same person! You just said everything that goes through my head daily. I lost 60 pounds before my son was born then gained it back plus 40 more. I told myself I would loose it but I’ve been struggling. My son is now 5 and I want so badly to give him a sibling. I have the most success when I track my calories on my fitness pal so I don’t really consider it a diet. Thinking I’m going to just focus on one goal a week this summer. My goal for this week and next (since this week is half over) will be to drink my water. I’m also a perfectionist so maybe we don’t have to be perfect all at once for everything but we could focus on just one thing a week. Thank you for your video. Just knowing I’m not alone in my weight/diet struggle gives me motivation.

Jenn's Journey says:

Thank you for sharing your story. I think about giving George a sibling and knowing my body couldn’t handle being pregnant at this weight makes me sad. I should focus on water as my first goal too

Allie 1213 says:

I think a lot of it is hormonally charged too
I am a mom of a now 1.5 yr old and it just has been such a struggle to get back at my health journey
I went to the beach with him the other day and seeing myself in a photo literally shocked me so much but at the same time, I knew what I have allowed myself to become. I have been overindulging and underperforming (or even partaking-in) exercise

I know I struggle with consistency especially when feeling stress

At the end of the day we need to be supportive of ourselves and we CAN do this, it just takes time and sometimes you need a slap in the face to get there, whether that be a photo like it was for me or physical symptoms like it is for you-it will help get us there

One step at a time girl! I used to do Weight Watchers and my user name was slow n steady wins it lol
I couldn’t agree more!
We got this!

Jenn's Journey says:

Thank you 😊

Mercedes Cartagena says:

I’m right there with you. Lost 75 gained back 40. No power or desire to start over.

Jenn's Journey says:

It’s so hard to start
