At first, the gym terrified Jessica. Now, it’s her happy place where she works out two hours each day. Like the healthy eating, spending time at the gym has become part of her life.
Jessica documented her weight loss journey on social media, hoping it would inspire others: “My name is Jessica, and I’m 21,” she wrote in a recent Instagram caption. “I’m 5’4, and I have lost over 170 lbs with diet and exercise. Starting at over 320 lbs and currently between 145-148.”
I applaud Jessica for her toughness. It’s not easy to break old habits. Making a lifestyle change doesn’t happen overnight as she’s proven. Jessica’s aware of the reality of her new lifestyle. There will be difficulties, and she will slip up because no one is perfect.
