Jennette was born weighing 8 pounds 5 ounces, but eventually hit 372 pounds before losing almost 200 pounds through diet and exercise. She chronicled the experience on her blog, PastaQueen, and in her book, “Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir.”
In 2008, Jennette got a headache that still hasn’t gone away, regained most of the weight, and wrote about coming to accept chronic illness in her second book, a humorous headache memoir called “Chocolate & Vicodin: My quest for relief from the headache that wouldn’t go away.”
In 2020, there was a global pandemic that scared Jennette into losing weight again, leaving her somewhere between her highest and lowest weights.
