My individual clients, as well as my Project Healthy Body members, have given me so much wonderful feedback. Here are some of their thoughts, and experiences, in their own words. I find it so empowering that none of them mention their actual pounds lost when my Healthy Bodies have collectively lost hundreds of pounds. It really does prove when you love yourself, care for yourself, and choose to be a Healthy Person the transformation you experience is so much greater than the pounds lost! Those pounds end up being a really nice added bonus as the new “healthy” you takes shape!
“Before I even knew the Universe had my back I stumbled upon Jennifer, and Project Healthy Body, at just the right time. I was living a lie, projecting happiness but feeling miserable. I thankfully started reading Holly’s blog just when my tolerance for my own BS was was at an all time low. I just needed to be free from decades of self abuse and self loathing. I wanted out but I had no idea how to get there. Then I read Holly’s blog What A Girl Wants.
I read Holly’s words like they were my own. Her honesty and bravery inspired me to be honest and brave. I tracked down Jennifer’s website and wrote her an email. After I sent it I cried, because maybe this would finally be my way out. I wanted Jennifer to fix me.
I very quickly learned that that wasn’t going to happen. Jennifer could not fix me, I must fix myself. Jennifer provided the framework for me to “get real” and tackle life-long issues, while promoting self-love and empowerment. I got myself into this mess and I would get myself out. Once that really sunk in, I was free! I am strong; I am loved; I am a healthy person!!!
Every week we build ourselves anew. Even when I had setbacks; hard days; days I felt so sorry for myself I could only cry, Jennifer would remind me that only I have the power to turn things around, make myself stronger, prove I have resilience and drive and unabashed amazingness! Which I do!
I started Project Healthy Body weighing 271.8 pounds on my 5’3” frame my BMI was over a 40 and I was racing towards a life of disease and an early death. It has been just over 6 months now and I am 198 pounds, over 70 pounds lost and I am now racing towards a new future. I have started a new business and I have ZERO doubt I will lose over 100 pounds because of Jennifer’s guidance.
The one thing I want to tell everyone who reads this, and sees themselves in this is…YOU are strong. You are loved. You can do this! Don’t waste another day in your beautiful precious life. Be a healthy person! ”
“Not only has Jennifer changed my life, but she has also likely saved my life. She has given me the roadmap and tools to find the health and vitality that I have been seeking for, after so many years of trying and failing. Never again. This is not a diet. It is a trans-formative and full circle approach into the depth of your being. It is an awakening, a journey – and it is easily the most powerful and life-changing decision I have ever made. I am a healthy person. How do you thank a person for that?”

“I quite honestly can’t recommend Project Healthy Body enough. Jennifer is THE person that you want to take this journey of emotional and physical transformation with. She demonstrates the perfect balance between nourishing your soul, educating your mind, and keeping it real with her no-nonsense attitude. This program is the best thing I could have done for myself, after years of trying to figure my own stuff out without success. I’m now lighter in spirit, love myself more, and know what to do to take care of myself properly. I can’t thank you enough, Jennifer!!”
“There is no easy way to describe Jennifer as a coach except as “life changing”. I have done every “diet”, plan, formula… you name it. I subscribed to the Diet Monday mentality… she has truly opened me up, jumbled my whole process and made me look at it through a microscope. This isn’t just a health program, its a game changer. She is tough but loving, she’s the captain everyone should have on their ship. I adore this woman and am thankful for her everyday. My health is on a trajectory that its never had!”
“Jennifer has changed my life in every way. Her energy and her passion for helping people achieve their health goals know no bounds. She is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate, and not afraid to tell it like it is. I am a healthy person because of Jennifer. I highly recommend her.”
“Project Healthy Body was life-changing for me. I had a hard time rationalizing money to something I already knew I needed to do, and believed I knew how to do. Eat healthy, exercise… and lose weight…I knew the drill. I had a gym membership, therapy and knowledge.. all the tools I thought I needed. Boy was I wrong. The coaching I received from Jennifer 1:1, and with Project Healthy Body, changed the relationship I have with myself and my health. Jennifer has an incredible way of listening and supporting, but most importantly guiding and teaching in the areas where you need it most. Jennifer doesn’t let you off the hook, and she forces you to dig deep, especially in the areas you want to skip over. I made huge leaps in my understanding of what was holding me back and in my willingness to do the work. It all comes together and you become a healthy person, living the Project Healthy Body life. If you are thinking about working with Jennifer I STRONGLY encourage you to take the first step and sign up! You are worth investing in your health and this is not like anything you have tried before. That first step is all it takes, Jennifer will help you identify the rest of the path that lies ahead of you…and she will support you while YOU do the work! I wish you a happy, healthy life!”

“I lost a lot of things by joining the Project Healthy Body–including weight, old insecurities and nasty self talk. What I found instead was support, accountability and life changing new habits. I am grateful to Jennifer for helping me find a healthier, happier way to live. An amazing journey, one I will continue to stay on for the rest of my life!”
“When I thought about Project Healthy Body I immediately thought to myself, “I just had weight loss surgery I’m going to do this on my own.” But the more I thought about it I figured It could only help. I have known Jennifer for years and watched her journey so I knew she had overcome something I had not been able to get a handle on. I didn’t jump in though, I tip-toed into the process and was hesitant, which I regret. It wasn’t until about week 3 when I was feeling better from eating real food that it began to click. I could see that this was actually something I could do, and wanted to do! I wanted to be healthy! I had never really tried because I didn’t know how to love myself. That is the hardest part, learning and working to love myself. Deciding I am worth fighting for.
The weekly calls are motivating, they connect the dots and it really helped me to know that others shared many of the same struggles. All the feedback, and support, helped tremendously. The homework made me slow down and think about what I want from this life, and my body. When week 12 rolled around I was feeling unstoppable and ready to tackle anything.
My advice to anyone considering Project Healthy Body is just jump in! It is the greatest gift you can give yourself! Once you start making the changes, the brain fog lifts, you can clear away your critical thoughts and get busy caring for yourself. Slowly everything takes a new shape. I am still using the tools Jennifer gave me, and will for the rest of my life. I also know she is a resource anytime I need to check-in, or get a dose of motivation, or help with an issue. Enjoy!”

“Project Healthy Body gave me the opportunity to identify and explore what food is to me-how it fits in, how I use it, and how I can make it work to create and maintain a better, stronger me. Jennifer has provided coaching with compassion, empathy and true life realities. This has been so eye-opening, and life changing!”
~ Stacie W.
“Jennifer really helped me jumpstart my weight loss program and helped motivate me to get moving! She had great ideas, was accessible, and a good sounding board. I still love looking at her Instagram account for motivational photos that keep me going! 8 months later and I am still taking great care of myself!”
~ Holly P.
“What I love most about Jennifer is that she walks the walk in her own life and she brings an understanding only someone who has traveled her journey can bring. Her zest for life and LIVING- it was a huge motivation for me to learn what she knows. While working with Jennifer, I was impressed with the input and help that was available, while at the same time an encouragement to trust myself, listen to myself, and take my own steps. I felt more empowered than ever as well as armed with valuable tools. I’ve seen emotional and mental progress in my relationship with food and body image, and continue to see physical progress. I realized just tonight I need to size down in jeans!”

“First of all, this is not a diet! There are no meal plans, exercise programs, magic pills, weekly weigh-ins. Project Healthy Body is a community built on self-care, self-love, and trust.
I joined Project Healthy Body with the idea that I was joining a “Holiday Accountability” group to get through the holiday season without falling off the wagon, because I know I need accountability. But to my surprise, I entered a journey that exposed those things in my soul which held me back. I had to take a serious look at the imbalances in my life.
My weight for me has been about control. I had this “number” in my head. If it goes up, reduce calories, increase cardio. Easy. Controlled! But this way of living has come with a price. This year, thinking I tore my meniscus in my right knee, I went to the doctor. The discovery was not a torn meniscus, but 90% cartilage loss. No more cardio! This was devastating. How was I going to “control” those extra pounds? But now I understand “I am more than a number on the scale”. Through Project Healthy Body I started to change my focus from the outside and look inward. Worry less about the scale and open my mind to areas that I forgot to grow, to love and care for myself…in ways that I never had.
The best part of Project Healthy Body was the community. To walk through this journey with a group of women, different ages, and stories. To know that we all experience the same voice that says we are not enough, that we don’t have it all together. To breakdown of the walls of protection, and collectively witness the journey of healing together. To affirming one another. Loving our selves. Caring for our selves. Sometimes, crying and empathizing with the pain and growth. Witnessing the empowerment of our lives.
The truth is, it’s not about weight, size, etc. Project Healthy Body is a guided journey to expose the story you tell yourself that holds you back from your truest self, your healthiest self! When you start to forgive, love and care for yourself, your body will love and care for you back. You will see changes that are sustainable and LIFE-changing.”
“Jennifer is a force to be reckoned with. Her energy is contagious, and she brings so much wisdom and an incredibly fresh take to one of the hardest battles life has thrown my way, self-love and self-care. I’m so happy our paths crossed, and I imagine (at the age of 26!) that I’ll be implementing Jennifer’s teachings for the rest of my life — not to mention that sharing all the knowledge I’ve gained with just about everyone I love in my life.”
“As someone who as tried all sort of diets for years and would up completely confused about what to eat and how to manage my body, Jennifer had a big impact on my life. She gave me a path forward both for processing my emotions about food and knowing what to eat. And I’ve pretty much kicked sugar!! Whether you are overweight or just know that thoughts and feelings about your food and your body consume waaaaaay to much of life, you should call her. I’m so grateful for happy body project and for the community of women I now can lean on for support. Thank you Jennifer for your wisdom, support, inspiration, and example. It’s awesome.”
“Jennifer is a nutrition and coaching Rock Star! Armed with insights and a large dose of love and support plus an occasional kick in the rear, she is a wonderful support for the journey towards health.”

“Jennifer’s program is the foundation of my day and my future. I’m not sure where I’d be health-wise or emotionally without Jennifer as I moved from corporate life to MY LIFE!”
