After that humiliating moment at an amusement park, Jennifer successfully turned her life around. She's lost 180 pounds, and her story was featured in the "Half Their Size" issue of People magazine.
Before setting out on a journey of healthy eating and exercise, Jennifer says she had other hard work to do. "First you have to set your mind and your heart and just be prepared and get mentally ready. And this time you're going to do it," she says. "And just kind of have a heart-to-heart with yourself."
Not only has Jennifer's commitment changed her own life, it also changed her career. Now she inspires others in her work as a personal trainer. "That's my dream—to help other people realize they can do it," she says.
