My name is Jennifer, and I love marketing. Oh yeah, I’ve also got some weight to lose. If I’m honest (which is the point of this blog), I can say that I’ve struggled to lose weight my entire life. Though I’ve never done any of the fad diets, I’ve done my fair share of yo-yo dieting, and I’m tired of living life beneath my potential and living in a body that doesn’t reflect the real me.
So that brings me to the title of my blog. Angels in the marble is based on a quote from Michaelangelo (the artist-not the Ninja Turtle). After completing a marble sculpture, he summarized his process in one powerful quote – “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” This quote beautifully summarizes my weight loss journey. Every setback, every failure, and every victory help me chip away my negative thoughts and bad habits while slowly revealing a healthier, happier version of myself.
I’m determined to accomplish this goal through good ‘old-fashioned diet, exercise (and prayer). I’m excited about my journey and look forward to making new friends along the way.
