My name is Jenifer, and I am attempting to peel away the layers that have grown, over the years, to obscure my best self. This blog began with the “Hunger Challenge” in November 2009, which was conceived of as a way for me to lose weight AND, concurrently,do something to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from hunger or food insecurity in my community. Each week, I tracked my weight loss and posted at least one reflection piece about my life: what I was learning, how I was feeling, the changes that were taking place.
In the process of completing the challenge, and through opening up to a wonderful and supportive community (comprised of people I only knew or communicated with online and of those who are part of my daily life), nearly everything about my life has changed for the better! Jenion continues to be the place where I share my journey. It is also, hopefully, a place where others can find pieces of their lives reflected.
I welcome any comments and/or feedback. I am also truly interested in offering support to others who are doing the difficult work of changing their lives to be happier and more fulfilled. If commenting on the blog feels too public, please feel free to contact me by email at email@example.com.
