Hi! I’m Jen! I’m a girl on a mission to get healthy.
I believe that losing weight is about a mindset of trying to be healthy, not skinny. I believe in learning to accept yourself for who you are (and what you look like) NOW. I believe in loving your body for the amazing gift it is, and I believe in learning to find ways to use it that YOU love. I think getting and staying healthy comes a lot easier if you can do all that.
I used to weigh over 250 pounds. By the time I was 35 years old, I had been obese for ten years. I was flirting with diabetes, and my doctor was talking about putting me on cholesterol meds.
Even that wasn’t enough for me to want to change, though. One day, I just finally decided I was done being fat. I was tired of feeling so tired. I was ready to change. So I did!
I have thyroid disease and PCOS, so I know how hard it can be to lose weight and how slow the process can seem. But 90 pounds later, I absolutely know that little changes plus time equal huge results. I know that one small change leads to another, and those small changes start compounding. Eventually, those small changes change your whole life.
I also believe that if I can get healthy, anyone can!
