This is the first year that I haven’t celebrated my Jenniversary / blogiversary on the actual day (November 1.) It’s weird.
The thing is: I always post about it. I always celebrate it. I never miss the opportunity to look back and to be grateful, even if it’s 21 days late.
So… it’s been 2211 days. SIX YEARS, you guys! That’s a lot of freakin’ days!
2211 days ago, I walked into Jenny Craig for the very first time… and asked someone to help me. I told Chris at the center that I had hit rock bottom and that there was no where for me to go but up (and literally down in weight.)
2211 days ago, I changed my life.
There are a few days that I’ve experienced in my life that I’d call pivotal moments. The day I moved to Colorado, the day I walked out of my corporate job that was killing my soul, and the day I declared my happiness tour to the universe, to name a few.
The one that shaped me 2211 days ago is a big one. When you begin to look at yourself in a new way, when you begin to carry yourself differently, more confidently, and more happily, your life is transformed and that’s exactly what happened that day.
Today, may not be quite the “after” that I wanted to be 2211 days ago, but I have achieved so much more than I ever thought possible way back when… 2211 days ago. I’ve kept off the weight longer than I ever thought imaginable… and I’m embarking upon my 40s in a much healthier state that I’d ever imagined.
And mostly… I’m grateful.
I’m so grateful for that day. For whatever was inside of me that made me decide to try the Jenny Craig program…. to take a chance on something new… and to stick with it.
My life is forever changed. Thank you each of you for following along with this journey and inspiring me to stay on track. I truly couldn’t have done it without you! xoxo
