My Very Personal Transformation – What Motivated ME to Finally Lose the Weight

My name is Jenny Grothe, and I have a story. September 2007 I was 170 pounds – my heaviest ever. I’d always been slim. I ate what I wanted, as much as I wanted, when I wanted. I was active throughout my teens and 20’s, but after we adopted our first child, that all slowly […]
