My passion for this work was sparked by my own need for it. What I have learned through a dark depression, an endless emotional eating binge cycle, and years of self-loathing is that it is really hard to go at it alone.
For as long as I can remember, I used food as comfort. My unhealthy relationship with food resulted in a struggle with obesity. When I graduated from university with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2010, my weight had climbed to 295 pounds.
The day I stepped on the scale and saw that number staring back at me was a turning point in my life. It was at that moment that I vowed I would never reach 300 pounds...

Jenna has a great approach!
The Love Your Body program helped me gain insight into the barriers that were holding me back from meeting my goals, and being more comfortable in my body. I loved the supportive nature of the group setting, and the weekly group coaching, as this helped keep me on track and accountable to the goals I had set for myself. Jenna has a great approach to teaching mindfulness, self-awareness, and self-compassion, and I really enjoyed working with her on this.
