Allow me to tell you more about myself (for those who don’t know me. Haha!). I’m Jennifer, and I’m married to my absolute best friend ever. I have two sweet kiddos, my 5-year-old daughter, and my 1-year-old son who are literally the most exhausting and amazing little people ever. I’m a working-mommy turned stay-at-home-mommy. I absolutely love spending time with my family. I do photography. I love being involved in my church. And guess what – I used to be 336 pounds.
Yep, you read that correctly. This was me before I started my health journey. Well it’s still me! Hehe! BUT boy have I changed on the inside and on the outside. I look at this girl and I remember how horrible I felt at the time, over ten years ago. This girl was bullied all through school, and by the time I graduated high school I was just in such a dark, sad, and hopeless place.
I remember the night before I started my health journey. I remember laying in bed, in the dark, and sobbing. Sobbing, and sobbing, and sobbing some more. Until I drifted off to sleep. The next morning I woke up and started making tiny changes in my health choices.
Just baby steps. Small changes here and there that added up in the long run.
In the forefront of my mind, I am always thinking about this girl. I’m thinking of how it felt to live in that 336 pound body, and how different it feels now, to be healthy. That’s probably why I have become so passionate about my own health, and about helping other people in the journey, in whatever small ways I can.
That’s what it’s all about right?! Sharing your story, and letting your crazy mess become your message!! So here I am, sharing a few of the key elements that help me stay on track these days.
In this post you’ll find the four main components of my health habits, and how I use them to help me reach my ever-changing goals.
