After 5 months she stopped drinking shakes as she learned how to cook healthy food and how to portion it. She was sure that she would be able to slim down by just eating healthy foods.
The first 2 months she consumed 1200-1500 calories on average a day, then she increased the calorie intake of her diet to 1500-1700 calories.
As soon as she stopped drinking shakes, she started to walk a lot. Every day she walked more than 3 miles and after a month of training, she bought her first gym membership.
She was embarrassed before her first gym workout because she thought everyone would laugh at her. The first 3 months she worked with a trainer: she only had 2 sessions each month but it was the most difficult challenge for her.
After 2 months of gym training, Jessica noticed the first changes in her body. She decided to buy a scale to motivate yourself to continue losing weight.
When people ask Jessica about her motivation, she answers them: “No one can want it for you, you have to want it for yourself”.
