Who is Jet, anyway?

Hi there!

I thought I should take the time to introduce myself. My name is Jet. These are my adventures. In work, life, fitness, running, parenting, travel… you name it.

I am an open book, and tend to have a hard time censoring myself. Learning to blog will, in itself, be a grand adventure.

At the moment; I am extremely happily married, a “mother” to four (yes, 4!) pitbull mix dogs, and a first time mom as of early September 2016.

I spent a lot of my teen years and most of my 20’s not knowing how to really embrace and support who I am. It took me a long time to find myself and learn to love myself, and it showed in a lot of ways. I went from being in decent shape in high school to experiencing depression and obesity in college and early adulthood.

I topped the scales, just a few short years ago, around 270 pounds. I don’t know my exact highest weight, or when it was, as I was always back and forth between wanting to know and wanting to ignore the issue. Myself.

In 2014 I started to see small changes. In 2015 I took myself, and life, more seriously. I came close to losing my marriage because of my self-depreciation and lack of follow through. I can absolutely say, that was my biggest mistake in life – not understanding how my treatment of myself was also my treatment of my husband and our marriage.

I have come a long way, and try to share my story as openly and candidly as possible. I might miss some things here and there because I’m “back-dating” some information, so if what I post and share brings up any questions, please feel free to contact me and ask them! Post a comment, send an e-mail, follow my Instagram, whatever floats your boat. I’m here to share, support and encourage.

I hope that by sharing, I can help others reach their potential and find love for themselves if that is something they struggle with. Life can be hard – let’s help each other through it as best we can!
