Jazz Jennings reflects on 100-pound weight gain due to “Binge Eating”

Jazz Jennings lets fans get in on her ongoing health journey with the new season of I’m jazz.

TLC released the first look at the unwritten series’ upcoming seventh season on Monday, November 1, including footage of the 21-year-old reality star openly discussing his recent battles with overeating. At the start of the promo, Jazz recalled the ups and downs of her life since her acceptance at Harvard University.

“Two years ago, I was on my way to one of the largest institutions in the world, but I was actually struggling seriously with mental health issues,” she said in a voiceover. “I started eating overeating and I gained weight, and more weight and more weight. And now, almost 100 pounds heavier, here I am today.”

She continued, “With all this extra weight, I can’t do as many things with my body as I used to be able to do.”

Other scenes showed Jazz banging her head along with members of her family over her eating habits. “I experience fat-shaming from my family,” Jazz told the camera. “It makes me feel really humiliated.”
