She is unsure of her exact weight but guesses that she is around 230 pounds. Jennifer is considered “obese” by medical standards and has been so for most of her life. She was “average” size until she was eight years old but began gaining weight shortly thereafter. Her mother would often question how much she ate and began to restrict her food intake.
