Short Bio

As a full figured woman who struggled with her weight for years, Sarah Jenks finally found the key that all diets were missing. After bouncing between fad diets and struggling with her body image, Sarah realized she had been “waiting on the weight” – waiting to be thin before she: got the great job, the great wardrobe or the great relationship.

When Sarah stopped waiting on the weight, she finally did all the things that she had put on hold for years: going for her ideal job, flirting with her dream guy, going out dancing and living a fully engaged life. In her words, the late

night “pity snacking” ceased with all the joy and activity this new lifestyle brought, and she naturally moved to her ideal body.

Sarah’s success in creating a happy lifestyle, which also resulted in a dramatic weight loss, is what led her to create Live More Weigh LessTM, now the most popular non-diet weight loss program on the internet. It’s not about cutting out crème brulee, it’s about embracing the life you want, right now. Living a full, meaningful life is a great adventure; when you have adventure in your life, diving into a pint of ice cream seems less exciting.

Long Bio

Sarah Jenks is the Founder of the popular online program, Live More, Weigh Less™. online program designed to show women how to embrace their body and their life, no matter what size they are! After years of struggling with her own body image Sarah realized she did not have to drop 20 lbs to live a fabulous life! LIVE MORE, WEIGH LESS™ has built a community of women who embrace Sarah’s philosophy and share their own successes with other women around the world.

Sarah grew up in Sherborn, MA in a home of entrepreneurs – both of her parents ran successful businesses. Her mother always told her that if she wanted to make money, the best way to do that is to work for yourself, but it would take many years before Sarah took her mother’s advice.

Keeping close to home, Sarah went to college in Western Massachusetts at Williams College. She studied psychology, but mostly focused on planning events and parties. After graduating in 2007, Sarah wasn’t sure what she wanted to do, so she moved to New York City. She eventually landed a job as an account manager at an advertising agency. Sarah realized that this path was not for her – she wanted to stay creative while also helping people. She took to the Internet to explore new career ideas and stumbled upon The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She instantly fell in love with the program and set out to learn more about nutrition and eating better.

At this point in her life, she had already been on over 50 failed fad diets. She was searching for someone to look to for help with emotional eating. Sarah didn’t want a skinny yoga teacher telling her to eat leafy greens or a therapist

who only focused on extreme eating disorders, so she strived to become the health coach she needed for herself.

While studying at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Sarah was still bouncing between diets. She tried everything from cleansing to going vegan, still struggling with weight. Her definition of thin meant being beautiful enough to date and having the energy to go after her dreams. Sarah says, “There was a time in my life when I felt like I needed to be a size 2 to deserve those things. I would lie in bed hoping that the next diet would be my fairy godmother that would bippity boppity boo my pumpkin shaped body into swimsuit model material, and send me a dashing prince with sweet dance moves and a killer castle.” She realized that if this diet thing was going to work, it would’ve worked by now and it was time to start a new approach.

After Sarah’s “a-ha” moment, she began to live a life full of adventure, play, and romance. She went from a size 12 to a size 6 because she was enjoying the life she wanted to live. Sarah wanted to share her definition of “dieting” with other women. She finally took her mother’s advice and started her own business and created her successful online program, Live More, Weigh Less™ in 2012.

Sarah currently resides in San Francisco, after moving in 2011 for her husband’s residency at a hospital there, and has a beautiful baby boy. In her own adventurous life, Sarah loves planning fancy picnics, romantic surprises for her husband, and girls’ nights out.
