A â€˜Female Warrior’ in her own mind, Jen’s daily life is so chaotic and stressful she’s on medication for depression. A mother of three young boys from two previous relationships, Jen is also in a new marriage that’s quickly unravelling. Paul is highly sceptical when Jen hands him her cigarettes and agrees to give up smoking, drinking, chocolate and her favourite junk foods all at the same time. Jen doggedly hits the gym and tries Capoeira, even as her marriage explodes with accusations of infidelity.

I found Jen’s story to be really touching, funny and so real. I think she did an excellent job!! She made changes and stuck to them! And didn’t complain! Way to go Jen I think you are totally amazing!
It’s a shame that she didn’t stick to her regime. I’e seen her around town and she’s back to her original weight.

Thank you Robin! I’m glad you enjoyed!
I’ve watched the episode and the part about the tattoo being “Female Warrior” is so fabricated. The 2 Chinese characters literally translate to “Tiger” and “Rabbit/Hare” and doesn’t have any meaning at all within the Chinese language. Sad, sad real life story…
Well… they didn’t show the entire explanation of my tattoo. The Tiger and Hare were for my 2 older sons because they are part Chinese. Those are the years that they were born. The writing underneath them both is in Pre-Hispanic Filipino script called “Babayin” Thats the part they were referring to. And that is the part that says “Female Warrior” You can look that up if you like.
I was planning my wedding a year ago and then I had mild setback with my adult children and this has encouraged me to eat like there is no end…and I am not hungry.

I love the shaw bravo to Anaid productions, that every single show was presented so far on TV it is educational, and very High quolity,we all love it and we wish that Anaid production will continue with more such series,thank you so much.

I thought she was a ridiculous contestant. Her “sad story” is really just a spoiled, lazy woman who doesn’t want to work at anything in her life. After 6 months she was ready to call it quits with her husaband? I’m suprised he didn’t dump her way before- her internet obsession should have been dealt with along with her weight issues. What if the roles were reversed and her husband had been on the computer all night talking to other women- would she have liked it? I didn’t find her story to be inspiring what so ever. I really hope she’s readjusted her attitude and that she learns to love herself before any man can truly love her.
She does not know how to treat a man. Read the Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands by Dr. Laura. You won’t regret it.
I saw her photo stream on Flikr. She’s married, AGAIN. And she’s bigger than ever. I really hoped she would have kept the weight off. Too bad. I wonder what the success rates are for contestants on this show?
To anyone who left a bitchy, judgemental comment, get off your high horse and behave like a decent human being!
SHAME ON YOU ALL.
You have no idea what it is to live this persons’ life and you have no right to vent your ignorance and small-mindedness towards a person you’ve never met. Besides, what might we all have to say about your dirty little secrets if you actually had the balls to put yourself in such a position, to at least TRY to change the circumstances in life that create discord. This woman displayed an enormous amount of courage. Things may not have stayed the same for her, but she took a step towards positive change, and for anyone who has ever attempted to do so, they will understand that that process takes time.
I might suggest that all of you Suburbia housewives take a look outside of your cookie-cutter homes and Ford Escalades and you will see that you could use some change yourselves.
Hey Commenters! Guess what? TV editors make a show as dramatic and controversial as they can! I know, earth shattering. Yes, Jen has had her personal drama. Yes, she’s not perfect. But you know what? Jen lives her life with integrity and tons and tons of guts. She is a braver women than 90% of us. So, she has a bit more flare than your average joe. That’s why those of us who love her (and there are plenty) do love her. When you’ve walked in her shoes, or anyone elses for that matter, then feel free to judge. And get your facts straight too. She isn’t married. But oh yeah, you’re the idiots who think t.v. is real life – why would you bother with facts??
I completely agree with with Natalie’s comments about Jen. I didn’t find her story inspirational, I actually found her pathetic. What kind of responsible wife and mother would spend hours and hours on end on a computer talking to strangers – while she lets herself, her marriage and her house fall into shambles? And that “storytelling” stuff? Oh please, what crap. If that had been her husband Steve doing it, somehow I think it wouldn’t have been okay. The fact that Jen has three young sons, and was SO eager to just bail on yet another marriage is proof of how selfish she is. Kids need a father figure, especially at that age – and Steve wanted to be that for those boys (who aren’t even his kids). And she just walked away after six months! Talk about selfish. Jen says she never puts herself first? Please, she’s the only one she seemed to care about in that episode. I feel sorry for her children, and I am not at all surprised if she put all the weight back on. People like Jen are all about the quick fix, not about doing what it takes for the long haul.
She may not have been successful at keeping the weight off, but Fred did an amazing makeover on her. I wish I could have looked like that for a while!!
Kick the tires and light the fires, proelbm officially solved!
