Hi! I'm Jennifer Silliman and I couldn't be more excited to tell you about READY. SET. SHINE!
So you're a mom--taking care of everyone, except you. You're feeling exhausted, not eating a healthy diet or making time to eat at all, you have no energy to exercise, lucky if you get a shower, and no support system and worst of all...when you magically find time to do things for you, you're overcome with mommy-guilt. Sound familiar?
NOW is the time to CHANGE YOUR LIFE, to CHANGE MOTHERHOOD.
Get ready to SHINE!
PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM OCD AND ANXIETY... In 2009 I was pregnant with my daughter and began suffering from pregnancy obsessive-compulsive disorder with intrusive thoughts. I didn't even know there was such thing. I was "lucky" enough to get the treatment I needed, but still felt terribly alone. I now spend time advocating for the mental health care of pregnant and postpartum mothers through awareness, education and sharing my own personal story around the country, as well as sharing the groundbreaking film I produced, Dark Side of the Full Moon.
WEIGHT-GAIN & WEIGHT-LOSS...Coincidently part of my treatment plan for my pregnancy/postpartum OCD was medication, and yes I gained weight. Lots of it! I headed to Weight Watchers, lost the weight and became a leader and personal coach, helping hundreds of people, including new moms lose weight too. *NOTE: Ready Set. Shine! is not Weight Watchers™ related. Watch Jennifer's Weight Watchers Story
AUTISM...Upon going off my medication, my daughter Allyson was diagnosed with severe autism, yet another path that has brought me to creating this experience for moms. It's hard, lonely and most of all challenging to keep myself a priority, but I know it's important.
So are you ready to put yourself back on the priority list and join READY. SET. SHINE!?
