About me

Hey! My name is Jenni Riley. I live in Abilene, Texas with my kick-A husband, Chase, and our two boxers Romo and Ruby (who are the coolest dogs on the FACE of the world)! I work in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and love it! Love my family, and love my friends that have become family. I love to be creative and crafty.  My specialties are furniture and stationary. I sometimes suffer from diarrhea of the mouth when I find myself in awkward situations.  I have a poor self-esteem when it comes to my body, but I’m pretty good at hiding it to most people.  My close friends and husband would disagree. I love God and love people, and I am searching for peace and fulfillment….everyday.

I am writing this blog as a way to share my journey with others that are on the same journey as I am.  I am working toward a life of healthy eating and exercising.  My main motivator is my desire to be a good example for my “in the future” children.  I don’t want to pass along my horrible relationship with food and disdain for exercise to them.

I hope my blog can be of some encouragement to someone, somewhere.  And even if it’s not…it’s therapeutic for me to process my feelings that are so easy to bury…with food! 🙂


My Loves- Romo & Ruby

  2. Hey Jenni! I love your site! You’re such a great writer and I know that you’re really going to inspire people with this! Love you!

  3. Hi Jenni. I found your blog a few days ago and I linked to it so I could find it again. My wife and I both struggle with weight and are trying to get back on track after the holidays. I hope you’ll also write about your work with children…that seems interesting. Just wanted to say hello and to tell you I’m pulling for you.

    Warm regards,

  4. I’m so happy for you! I know better than anyone what it’s like to struggle with weight since we’re drawn from the same gene pool. I’ve done really well at bringing down my weight in the past six months, I just hope I keep losing and keep it off! I’m excited about your blog, it gives me a chance to read what you have to say on whatever topic you want, and I love knowing what you have to say. Your openness to share about your weight is fearless. I have a problem with people knowing my last name or where I went to high school on FB, but you’re sharing your journey with everyone. It’s admirable.

    Love ya sis,


  5. Well said J.T.

    I know all about that gene pool thing. We come from STUDS!!! I am so thankful for my heritage. OK, I do wish they were a little skinnier!
