Sander Jennings Tells Sister Jazz 'You're The One Lying To Yourself' Regarding Recent Weight Gain
Sander Jennings is getting brutally honest.
During the latest episode of I Am Jazz, Sander and his sister Jazz Jennings got into a heated discussion when talking about the reality star's recent weight gain. Jazz has been trying to lose weight for health reasons after gaining over 100 pounds in the last year.
Sander even went as far as to say Jazz is "lying" to herself and "making excuses," when it comes to working on losing weight.
As Sander was telling his 21-year-old sister she needed to hold herself accountable for her own weight loss journey, Jazz tried explaining she's getting tired of the pressure her family has been putting on her to shed some pounds.
"I'm kind of tired of my family being on top of me over and over again when it comes to food," she said in the confessional during the latest episode on Tuesday, January 4. She also told Sander — who is one of her 23-year-old twin brothers — she felt he was "bringing [her] down," and "ostracizing" her.
"I just feel like you guys constantly acknowledge the bad things," she told her older bro during the heated conversation. "You always think you're right and that you have the correct opinion, but you've said things that I don't relate to at all."

She added in her confessional that she felt a "need to defend" herself against her family, "because I've just kind of allowed my family to berate me over and over again."
In his own confessional, Sander explained his opinion on the matter, saying: "I need to be hard on her because she lacks commitment and consistency."
After Jazz explained she's often too "busy" to spend time focusing on her body and her weight loss effort, Sander told her she's "making excuses," to which Jazz replied, "You're attacking me right now."
"You're the one lying to yourself," Sander fired back, while adding that Jazz "never follows through" with her goals.
Later in the episode, Jazz admitted she had been "deceiving" herself and her family, confessing she may have been trying to lose weight for the wrong reasons.
"I think I have to take the pressure off myself and stop forcing myself to diet and eat healthy and try to lose this weight because the pressure I put on myself is really negatively impacting my mental health," she maintained. "Instead of losing weight for myself to feel good and healthy, I almost felt like I was doing it for other people."
By the end of the episode, Jazz concluded she needed to stop putting so much negative pressure on herself, which may help her to lose weight in a more "natural" way.
