I wanted to make sure you saw this!

September 8, 2015

Guess what?!

Over the past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of doing TWO LYS segments on CBS!

And since September seems to take on a mini “new years resolution effect”, where everyone re-commits to their desires of slimming down and trades summertime sips and splurges for an effort to get back on track, I wanted to make sure you saw these segments because I sense what we talk about can really support you 🙂

In this first interview, I talk about what NOT to do when you notice your pants are tight and what to do instead. You can watch the replay of it here:

Diet Misstakes

AND in this second segment, I share with you 5 seemingly healthy foods that can turn unhealthy real fast. You can watch the replay of that here:

Jess On TV

I am very honored and grateful for these opportunities to support even more women with laughing themselves skinny! If you feel called, please share one or both of these with a loved one because I believe it’s time, more than ever, that we as women take our power back from food.

Supporting you every step of the way on this awesome journey,


How I Learned To Stop Working Out (And Love Movement!)

September 1, 2015

When I felt uncontrollable around food, I would use exercise as a way to erase what I had done in the past. At my most extreme, I was exercising 20 hours a week.

And nothing about it was fun.

Which looking back makes sense. Because for me, exercise was punishment.

It was punishment for eating too much. Punishment for not being thin enough yet. Punishment for eating one too many peanut M&M’s.

When I approached exercise this way, I never wanted to do it. And when I did, it felt like torture.

I would hear all the other girls I worked out with claim how it gave them great energy and endorphins all throughout the day.

But all I wanted to do afterwards was collapse into bed, completely exhausted.

Needless to say, I couldn’t keep this up for very long and one day I just stopped working out all together.

And you’re never going to believe THIS is what happened:

Completely counterintuitive, right?

But evidence that calories in, calories out doesn’t work.

It’s time to do things differently and Laugh Yourself Skinny.


How To Say No To Food (And Not Feel Guilty)!

August 25, 2015

Have you ever felt “forced” into eating something (that you really didn’t want to) just because someone you loved made it?

Thinking, “Poor 98 year old grandma has been slaving away making her famous apple pie. She’ll be so upset if I decline a piece.”

So you say yes to a slice to spare her emotional pain even though you didn’t really want it in the first place.

Ever been there?

I know it can feel like a lose-lose situation.

But it doesn’t have to be!

You can easily say no to food that you don’t want without ruffling anyone’s feathers or fearing a fight.

Don’t worry…I’ll walk you through it in this weeks episode of J-ciniTV.

It’ll be empowering. I promise.

Watch this:

Don’t forget, a lil bit of practice will make it easy-peasy!

Thanks for tuning in!

Lots of love to you!

One Simple Way To Get Back On Track (With Food!)

August 18, 2015

Ever said this to yourself after overindulging?

“I’ve already fallen off track. Why stop now?”
“ugh! I’m such a failure”
“I’ll start over again tomorrow”

We’ve all been there.

You may think that giving into naughty foods is fun. But I know the shame, blame and guilt of it afterwards sure isn’t.

Because it starts this cycle:
Eat naughty foods -> feel guilty -> eat more naughty foods

If you’ve overindulged, missed a workout or just plain old slipped up, know that the self-sabotaging cycle does not have to continue!

In this weeks episode of J-ciniTV, I share simple steps on how to get right back on track and STAY on track without falling into the guilt, shame self-blame game!

Watch this now:

While slip ups are bound to happen, (first name), remember it is important to stay consistent with taking action in alignment with your goals.

If you’re struggling with that, I’m here to help!

I invite you to receive a one of our complimentary LYS Discovery Sessions where we’ll end the self-sabotaging slip up cycle. To schedule this session fill out this form and my team will be in touch to schedule our powerful time together! My gift to you

Why Diets Don't Work For Emotional Eaters…

August 4, 2015

I was out to dinner with a dear friend of mine and she was picking my brain about her weight. For as long as I’ve known her she’s wanted to lose 30 pounds.

I’ve admired her commitments to trying paleo, cleanses and committing to eating 10 vegetables a day.

Years had gone by and nothing was making a dent. She was frustrated.

My heart ached for her, and for every woman who is stuck in her very same shoes…

Wondering, “what am I doing wrong?” where eating cleaner isn’t even possible!

If you relate to my friends story, don’t give up!

There is a reason why, no matter how clean you eat or how many calories you burn, the scale hasn’t moved.

One that isn’t talked about when you commit to a diet or sign up with a trainer.

I share more about it, and the solutions, in today’s episode of J-ciniTV.

Watch this now:


And if there’s 1 thing I want you to take away from today, it’s that the answers to slimming down and having a body you love have nothing to do with food.

You probably already eat really healthy!

YAY! Freedom from thigh chafing is here!

Oh the agony of thigh chafing! There is NOTHING worse!

And when the weather is oppressively hot, the last thing you want to wear are pants!

While there are literally hundreds of remedies to protect your precious thighs from the excruciating stingy and burning of thigh chafing, many solutions are messy and as sexy as your 90-year old grandmom’s panties.

But fear not my friend!

I’ve done the research and in today’s J-ciniTV episode, I give you my top 3 thigh chafing solutions so you can wear dresses, shorts or…heck even go pant-less 😉

(BTW, #3 is my all-time personal favorite and the sexiest, in my opinion)

Check them out here:

Thanks for watching. And if someone special popped into your mind while watching, please share this with her.

I truly believe the world will be a better place when women aren’t worried about their thighs.

How To Love Your Body (Even If It's A Work In Progress!)

July 14, 2015


You may have been taught, that when you finally lose the excess weight, THEN you’ll love your body.

I know I did!

Which made me really good at what I like to call the “hating yourself skinny” method.

I don’t recommend it. It wasn’t much fun. In fact, it was torture.

But I couldn’t quite grasp how to really love my body, if I wasn’t OK with having 20+ pounds on me.

Like how could I love myself if I feel so uncomfortable in my skin?

It was an approach that was so confusing to me!

I used to think that if I loved my body with 20+ pounds, I’d lose my motivation to slim down all together.

I’d end up eating cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week.

And probably gain another 20 on top of it all!

Does this resonate with you?

I knew there had to be a better way. So for a while I pondered and researched this question…

Can you really love your body with more around the middle, without losing motivation or giving up your desire to slim down all together?
Based on my research and experience the answer is YES!


In fact it’s NECESSARY to love yourself now in order to really love yourself once you’ve slimmed down.

So how do you do it?

I’ve put the step-by-step in today’s episode of J-ciniTV!

Check this out:

Remember, self-love isn’t something you get by wearing a certain size. Or by having a perfect body.

Self-love takes practice. It’s something you tune into. And even the littlest bit is real motivation that’ll keep you on track and in control.

If you found this helpful, please share it with one of your friends so she too can find freedom from food and her body.

Lots of love to you!

5 Signs You Are An Emotional Eater (And What You Can Do About It!)

July 7, 2015


“Why didn’t anyone tell me?!”

I remember saying screaming that to a friend of mine as I recounted the story of my own weight loss journey.

I had been struggling to find freedom from worrying about food and my body for more than half of my life.

I tried diets. Doubling up on workouts. Juice cleanses.

I felt exhausted. Tortured by food. And hungry… All. The. Time.

But it wasn’t until I addressed the real problem, that I was using food to comfort, decompress and distract, that I actually dropped 20+ pounds.

I realize now, if I had just known what I was doing before was emotional eating, I could have saved myself years of frustration and failed attempts.

That’s why I’m SUPER excited to share this weeks J-ciniTV with you because it’ll bring faster healing and freedom to your relationship with food.


My high recommendation is that you watch today’s video, whether you currently identify yourself as an emotional eater or not.

That way you can be crystal clear on what the real problem is behind your struggle to slim down.

Watch this now


My intention in sharing this with you today is so you don’t have to waste years of your precious life trying diet after diet only to gain it all back and more. So you can get real support on the real problem.

Now, before you start to go down a rabbit hole of beating yourself up thinking your broken or doomed for life, I want you to know:

#1) I was an emotional eater too 🙂

#2) You just have some wires crossed

And with Laugh Yourself Skinny®, we can straighten them out!

Let’s schedule a time to chat so you can discover if LYS is the right support in helping you overcome emotional eating.

My top 3 gluten-free beers

June 30, 2015

I’m not much of a beer drinker. But every once in a while, at a baseball game or like this 4th of July, I’ll want an ice-cold beer.

But my digestion is super sensitive and my body can’t handle a lot of gluten without paying a price ;-P

Now I have to be honest… a lot of gluten-free beers taste like crap or are super high in sugar (more than a king size snickers!).

No thanks!

So today, I wanna share with you my top 3 gluten-free beers that aren’t half bad!

Just FYI: I’m not being paid or endorsed to share any of this with you. This is from my own personal experience and many, many trips to the craft beer store with Zach and over time trying every gluten-free option they had. : )

I hope this will support you in finding an adult beverage you actually enjoy without your body or weight getting out of control.

Much love & I hope you have a safe, relaxing 4th of July!


Why You Gain Weight Without Eating Extra Food

June 23, 2015

Do you feel like you gain weight just by looking at food?

Like just walking down the ice cream aisle at the grocery store packs on 10 pounds without even putting a spoon to your mouth!?

Or have you noticed, during really stressful overwhelming times in your life, you blow up like a puffer fish without changing anything you eat?

I can totally relate.

When this would happen, I typically would hunt for cleanses and double up on my workouts.

But it always seemed like no matter what I did or what I ate, I couldn’t escape my ever-increasing waistline.

And it was driving me NUTS.

Until I discovered this hidden cause to weight gain has nothing to do with food:

So you can start to see that the problem that needs fixing isn’t food.

The problem that needs fixing lies in freeing yourself from taking on the weight of the world. Which is exactly what we do in Laugh Yourself Skinny®!

Wondering if LYS is the right support system in finding your freedom from food and weight gain worries?

Let’s schedule some time to chat to explore more! You can get started today by filling out this form. I’ll review it and my team will be in touch to schedule our powerful time together! My gift to you : )

All my love and support,
