About Jen Larsen

Jen Larsen is a writer and editor living in Madison, WI. In 2006, she underwent weight loss surgery and lost almost 200 pounds. Six years later she's still trying to figure out what that means in terms of health and body acceptance, but feels lucky to have experienced the full spectrum of weight and size issues on either end of the scale.

For two years Jen was the featured blogger at Condé Nast's Elastic Waist. Her columns have also been syndicated on Yahoo!'s Shine Network for Women. In 2013 Jen published "Stranger Here", a memoir detailing the struggles of weight-loss surgery both before and after. She has appeared on "Good Morning, America", People Magazine, The Huffington Post, and more. She is obsessed with tattoos as a way to transform your body, and has an MFA in creative writing from the University of San Francisco.
