The times, they are iChangin’.

Standard

So I’ve been trying to write a wrap-up post of my experience with iChange for about 3 days now and I just can’t seem to get it right. 

The reason I can’t get it right is because I”m not finished with iChange and it’s not finished with me. You see, we have developed a little bit of a relationship, and our mutual fondness for each other has grown into something…more.  Oh, I know it’s crazy to have feelings for a whole entire website, but I can’t help it. If loving iChange is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!

Seriously,  I like iChange. A lot.  Have you ever walked into a party full of people you don’t know, and by the end of the night they have made you feel like one of their own? That’s how I feel with iChange – they have embraced my crazy self and let me jump right in the ding-dang middle of them. What started out as “explore the site and tell us what you think” has morphed into a “hey Jill, come on in and put your feet up!” kind of thing.  My experience with them has been fun and exciting and just all around good. 

I’ve lost 4 pounds and 5 inches since I started with iChange just over a month ago. That may not sound like much, but when you consider I dealt with 2 Lady Times, a kitchen remodel, and my son’s birthday cake within those 30 days  I think  that’s pretty amazing actually.  And I am learning things about my body that I hadn’t put together before, like how drinking water affects my energy, and exercise is like taking medication – it works great if you do it regularly, but not doing it makes you feel “off”. 

The iChange website it easy to use, easy to navigate, and they love hearing feedback about how to improve it.  The experts are super nice and helpful, and the community there is so encouraging. I’m in a new group called the Emotional Eating Group (I know! Right up my alley) and then there is going to be a Maintenace Group as well.  The experts are there to hold your hand while you go through this weight loss business – they really are good at helping you stay on track. 

iChange’s future looks very bright and I’m excited to be a part of something that has the promise of taking off very quickly.  I think you’ll be hearing a lot about it in the days and months to come, and you can say you heard about it here first!  I’m going to be involved in some new things happening there (more on that later!!), and yes just like a teenager with a dreamy new boyfriend, I’ll probably be talking about iChange a lot around here, so if you get sick of hearing me talk about it,  just email me and tell me to knock it off.  I can’t promise I will, but hey, you can try!!

So that’s it I guess. Like I said, this won’t be the last time you hear about iChange from me, and I hope don’t come across as an Overzealous Makeup Salesperson (I know you all know what I’m talking about!), and if I do, you have my permission to NOT make eye contact with me  when you see me at the store (cause I know that’s what you all do too, when you see those women coming!!) 

I hope you all have a great weekend – it’s a long weekend for me – YAY!!!!!!!   🙂

  1. I have never heard of ichange. I will have to check it out. I go to the gym at least 6 days a week, and I am getting sooo burnt out on it that it puts me in a pissy mood just thinking about having to go. I can think of so many other things I would much rather be doing. So I am totally open to something new.

  2. I need to check it out. You’ve been talking about it for a month now…jeez.
    Also, I think you Jill…and I, Heather need to take Soccermom out and get her completely wasted…because DUDE, 6 days a week??

    • Can’t you spam it? Then I think the next time they try it will be marked as spam?

      Anyways, loved hearing about iChange. And I liked your info/reminders about water. In fact, I told my dad that stuff today.

      And youza, I am completely jealous of 4 pounds. Go Jill Go!
