Sharing Jessica’s Story

“The easiest measures of my Industrious transformation are 45 pounds gone, dress size from 22 down to 14, and cholesterol down 70 points.

“My before picture was taken 7 months after walking through the Industrious doors. I don’t have an actual before picture. During the before time I wanted to be invisible. I had spent the better part of 5 years on the couch, recovering from an injury, surgeries, and the toll I let them take on my physical and mental health. I didn’t feel like I belonged most places, let alone at Industrious.

“The Industrious community kept me coming back. A simple, “Good job today!” was – and still is – infinitely meaningful. The more I came back, the more confidence I had, the more I felt I belonged.

“Some of the most significant results of my transformation are not as easy to quantify. Through consistency, purpose, and connection to myself and to the community, I see leaps in strength, motivation, and resilience. I am up for trying things that scare me!

“Industrious is the community I didn’t know I wanted or needed. During 19.1 it clicked that not only do I belong here – I have always belonged here.”
