Jennifer Dutrow | Blind Beauty Issue 37
“My sight loss was a gift in disguise. After mourning the loss like that of a family member, I came to realize that my disability gives me power…to teach, encourage, inspire, and lead. I will never regret my sight loss.”~Jennifer Dutrow
Everyone needs a hero and I’m so happy Jennifer Dutrow is one of mine. I’ve followed Jen’s fitness journey for some time now and this woman is an inspirational beast! What I like most about Jen is her authenticity as she works to get a healthier lifestyle.
Jen’s workouts are intensive and she brings it: the good, the bad, the ugly. She shares her struggles, keeps pushing through, and is getting some fantastic results. Her message is always on target and she shares important life lessons about self-care. I’m actually learning to think differently about what I eat remembering my body needs food for fuel. Breaking an unhealthy lifestyle isn’t easy and it won’t happen overnight but watching Jen keep herself accountable is comforting.
Like all the Blind Beauties featured here, Jen is thriving through her sight loss. Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is stealing her eyesight but not her spirit. If you are looking to invest in your health follow Jen on Instagram at @fitchickwiththestick.
