Big Mama and her journey to be Healthy Mama!

This is one of the HARDEST Blog posts I have EVER done!

I find it so easy to put myself out there for social media but RARELY do I post pictures of me! 

My weight has grown and grown over the last 15 years! 

I have gained 100 pounds! 

Yep you read that right 100 pounds!!!!

I met my husband I was 152 pounds in Law School and Hot if I do say so myself! 

But 4 kids later and I weighed in at 250.6 

13 Days ago! 


Just writing that and saying that is sooooooooo HARD for me but I can do this! 

Growing up in utter chaos we had GOOD food! 

The house could be falling down around us but I am telling you we had good food!

I learned very young there is 

nothing Macaroni and Cheese , Fried Chicken and a Red Velvet cake could not fix! 

I was always athletic so weight did not seem to be an issue! 

But as I got older it was not that easy!

Needless to say I have struggled with food! 

Now I am not blaming anyone! 

I did this to myself! 

I was still in denial about my weight and what I looked like till we took a trip to Chicago to see my husband's family in June!

My husband had tagged me in a picture!

I wanted to die! 

I was mortified! 

I was getting groceries at Costco when we got back from the trip and they had a Vita mix demonstration going on! 

I did not have the money but I did it! 

I bought it! 

I called my husband saying don't spend a dime! 

I just spent all our money on a Vita mix, Fruits and Veggies! 

I am eating two shakes a day and a salad!

I have cut out Sugar, Flour and Meat!

I cut out most dairy but am using a little cheese and dressing on my salad! 

Today is Day 13! 

13 days of NOT CHEATING once! 

I am 244 pounds as of today! 


My goal is to fit in Matilda Jane Clothes! 

I know I am funny!

I plan to master selfies! 

So you guys can watch me on this journey! 

But mostly I need you guys to keep me accountable and just LOVE me through this! 

I hope I too HELP someone else just sharing my story! 

Hugs Jennifer
