Nurse Jen’s hilarious and heart warming story will inspire you

NURSE Jen O’Sullivan has a wonderful story to tell. She’s lost more than eight stone (112lbs) with her Slimpod – but what will amaze you about Jen is not just the weight loss but the inspiring way she’s gone about it.

Her journey is both touching and hilarious in equal measures. When we talked over Zoom, Jen had me in tears a couple of times and also had me rocking back on my chair in fits of laughter.

That’s why I just had to share the video we’ve made together. Jen will give you hope, inspiration and the motivation to succeed.

In the video she shares many personal moments, including:

  • Her realisation at the height of Covid that she owed it to her little daughter to lose weight so Jen would always be there for her.
  • Her pride when a photo of herself and her daughter in their nurses’ outfits was chosen to appear in a book about the pandemic by the Duchess of Cambridge.
  • Her happiness when she realised she could finally fit in a narrow chair at work that had been embarrassing her for years!
  • Her emotion when one day the engagement ring that was too tight for her chubby fingers finally slipped on with ease.
  • Her shock when after years of being unable to exercise she took her daughter trampolining – and joined in.

Finally, Jen has some fabulous advice for all Slimpodders about how to overcome the day-to-day obstacles that life throws at us all.

So find yourself 25 minutes of “me time” and settle down for some delightful viewing that I know you will both enjoy and find invaluable.

  1. Wow! Jen is so inspirational and looks absolutely fantastic and so full of vitality. I’ve not been fully committed to the plan since joining what with Christmas and family birthday celebrations taking my focus but after watching this video I have had a quiet word with myself that I am going to make time tomorrow to do my goal map and watch all the videos and read all past emails. I’m ready for action….thanks Jen for the inspiration!

    1. Jen, what do I say, you are incredible and you look really beautiful, you are so inspiring and watching the video has given me another boost to listen to the pods and making the right choices. Christmas has been a blib but as you said it happens and it’s time to move on. Thank you for sharing your last year with us and hopefully I will believe in myself like you have, thank you Sandra for the video and all your help and support.

  11. So inspired by Jen’s weight loss journey. It’s a big last ditch attempt for me as I’m 67 this year. Just had a knee replacement and want to get the best from it.

  12. Wow, What an inspiration Jen is. Jen’s story has filled my heart with even more hope that this is the right journey for me at last. I too have a very significant change to achieve but Jen’s story gave me the faith that I too can do it. Go Jen………

  13. What a lovely interview! Jen, you are so inspiring. I totally agree about feeling guilty for being fat – I feel that any physical, or emotional, issue I have could be solved if I lost weight. I believe I shouldn’t go to the doctor until I have, but that’s wrong, of course!.
    And, I share your itch to move and find i need to get out each day at least once.
    Your words really resonated, and made me smile. They have given me an ectra push. Thank you. ????

  14. Jen, I have been watching your posts with interest. This is inspiring, as you say, if your burning desire to have a child couldn’t ensure you shed the pounds Slimpod has been powerful for you. So delighted for you. Did anyone ever say you are like Emma Thompson?

  15. I can relate to so many things that Jen said. I have been doing Slimpod since June 2021 and I am happy with how things are going, but Jen is truly inspirational.

  16. My goodness Jen, your journey is so inspirational!! Huge congratulations to you, you look amazing!! Thanks for sharing, I’m sure I’ll re-watch your video a few times! All the best to you and your gorgeous wee girl.

  22. Absolutely fabulous! Such an inspiration! Totally agree with the itching to move, in my case it’s more it an intense irritation if I’ve not done anything! Also the coffee thing…. Off it completely, can’t even stand the smell now! My husband loves to grind the beans, percolate the coffee, all that stuff, makes me feel really queasy!
    Trust, persistence, believing….. new mantra

    This is so inspiring, a huge congratulations and a big pat on the back to Jen.
    I’m new to this programme and I also just happened to stumble across it on Facebook.
    My name is Jenny and I am also a children’s nurse. Working in the A+E department of a very busy hospital the the past five years has seen my weight steadily creep up despite constantly being in my feet over a 13.5 hr shift. Over snacking and rewarding myself for such long shifts has lead to me needing
    to get shut of 4 stones and like Jen I have tried every diet in the book! ….I have tried the free trial and it was instant, like a switch had been flicked on. My attitude towards food is changing. I am no longer shovelling sugary overly processed food in my mouth just for the sake of it. I am eating when I am hungry and opting for healthier foods, but it doesn’t seem like hard work anymore. It is bizarre ???…. Well whatever this sorcery is I’m so glad it presented itself to me! I have such a good feeling about this and I have 3 main goals to work to this year. A trip to Venice in April to celebrate my eldest daughters 21st, a holiday to Turkey in July with my husband and my big 50th birthday in September. I am determined that I will be 50, fit and fabulous!!!
