Of Course, THAT Would Be The Place I'm Losing Weight

I carry my weight like a pregnant person. In my belly. I've always wished that, if my lot in life was to be fat, that I would be that kind of person who had a big butt.

That's not to say that my butt is little. It's just that....... well....... for sticking out parts, my belly wins. Hands down.

As of today, I've lost 23 pounds.

And, I swear to God, it's all been....




I. HAVE. CHICKEN. NECK. !!!!!!!!!

It gives me the creeps!

I pride myself on (usually) not looking fifty-seven. I don't think my face looks fifty-seven when I have on lipstick, eyeliner, and mascara. Which....those of you who know me.....know that I can't live without.

But now, all anyone has to do to know that I'm fifty-seven is look about five inches below my face.

My neck looks every bit of the fifty-seven years it's been around.

I'm going to have to become a scarf person.
Which means I'm never going to match because I only have two scarves.

But it will give me license to look more silly.

Or I could wear this thing all the time.

Which I think is supposed to go on my head.

But that looks even more weird.

I'm screwed.

Chicken Jenny


  1. You always hid your neck in pictures because you thought it was fat. now that it is thinning you should be proud and show it off. it and you look great!

  2. My girls are always teasing me abouot my gobbler.....We will become Diane Keatons and Katherine Hepburns...That is why they wore turtle necks and scarves....

  3. I gotta tell you...when I saw you coming toward me in the parking lot today I wasn't positive at first that it was you. I thought "that looks like Jen but that's a thin person"!!! You look amazing and I am so proud of you (and jealous). You are my inspiration and I hope you'll help me find your attitude somewhere deep inside me! I love you :o)

  4. LMFAO!!!! There' s always duct tape; don't think I haven't considered it!!! <3 <3

  5. You arr funny and adorable, and you always will be! Love you, Jenn!

  6. Jenn, you are beautiful, and look no more than a day over 29. . . smile! Thanks so much for bring joy, warmth, and humor to our good fight!

    Im with you and following your lead towards health!

    Blessings and Happy New Year!


  7. Tevis,
    Thank you for your comments and your support. I noticed that you write a blog on snorkeling. That's one of my goals for the skinnier, more healthy me! So far, I've only practiced snorkeling in swimming pools but I love it. I do need to lose enough fat to be able to stay underwater without popping back up the surface like a buoy.
    I'm going to keep up with your blog so I can learn more about snorkeling!

    Happy New Year!

  8. You are SO funny!! I carry my fat around like a pregnant woman too - Iv heard the "are you pregnant?" question since forever. I love your blog; you're so real. I will def. be dropping back more often!
