I met Jessamyn in high school, she was friends with my sister and she got pregnant after she graduated with her beautiful son. I remember her bringing me all her clothes mid pregnancy. To say the least, I was THRILLED to get new clothes from Hollister, American Eagle, etc... but I'm MORE thrilled that she has completely done a 180 with her health. This now proud mother, wife, and business entrepreneur is a walking example of what it means to be a product of the product. Congrats JESS!!! <3 LOVE YOU!
Let's see what Jess has to say about her amazing transformation...
"I always FELT heavy, out of shape. I knew that the restrictions on my life were not okay. I felt trapped in this body. BUT no one else in my world told me this. I never knew how much my husband worried about me and my mom fretted. Professional yo-yo dieter was an understatement to my life. I tried it all from Sensa to hypnosis. Weight Watchers to Soup diets. Beyoncé’s Lemonade diet? Oh you know it!
Yet still no matter how many summers I spent in long sleeves and 100 degree weather, nothing put me over the edge to change until last year. A good friend visited me, we wanted to “make memories” and go sky diving. Needless to say, I was wayyyy over the weight limit. Finally it caught up to me. I was always too big for roller-coaster and airplane seats, but I wasn’t going to Six Flags or flying anywhere. Too Fat To Skydive? Being told that in front of a room of people? I was in physical pain. Something in me snapped that day. THIS was no longer okay. I was no longer going to sit on the sidelines. I was going to make a change and I was going to do it RIGHT! I took baby steps, incorporating exercise, changing my food. It was hard, but I knew the life I had been living was a lot harder.
I lost 100lbs in 8 months, and 117lbs in 12 months. These past 6 months have been about maintenance and education. This was more than a diet! This is a LIFESTYLE! & I wouldn’t trade it for the world!"
