My Name is Janet
And this is my story.
Who I am
In March of 2016, I began a new life. I came to believe in God in early 2015, when I was literally drowning in alcohol. I spent a year or so learning about who He is, and about the 12 steps of recovery. After countless relapses, and two trips to the hospital, I ALSO came to understand the importance of surrender. You can read more about my story HERE.
Where I am today
In 2017, I took a leap of faith and enrolled in college. As long as I’m sober, and as long as I’m writing the story of my transformation; I might as well give it all I’ve got… Right?! As of Spring 2020 I’ve earned my A.A. degree in Psychology, and I’ll be transferring to a University in May to pursue my bachelor’s. More on where I am today can be found HERE.
With 4 years of sobriety—and 4 months without a cigarette—can you guess where my tendency to be excessive has wandered off to? To my eating! I’m setting out on a new journey; to eat better foods and become more active. It’s time to get healthy. I have 54 pounds to lose, and a year and a half to do it. I’ll be keeping track of my progress HERE.
