Viete si predstaviť, že by ste sa už od detstva stravovali v reštauráciách a pizzérii a mohli by ste si dať vždy všetko, na čo máte chuť? Takto žila aj 25-ročná Gessica, ktorej rodina vlastnila sieť reštaurácii a pizzériu a jedlo bolo u nich vždy na prvom mieste.

Ako školáčka bola obézna, deti sa jej posmievali a smútok vždy zajedla. To, na čo dostala chuť, mala po ruke a tak sa doslova prepchala až na 115 kilogramov. Za svoje telo sa vždy hanbila, no stále nemala dosť. Zlom prišiel až vtedy, keď jej známi povedali, aby už so sebou začala niečo robiť.

Keďže bola obézna, pridružilo sa jej hneď niekoľko vážnych zdravotných problémov. Vyšetrenia zistili, že má cukrovku, vysoký cholesterol a syndróm polycystických vaječníkov. Toto bol jasný signál, že musí spraviť niečo so svojou životosprávou. Obmedzila nezdravé potraviny a začala veľa chodiť pešo.

Počas dvoch rokov prirodzene schudla 45 kilogramov a teraz vyzerá úžasne. Na ulici ju už nespoznávajú. Cvičeniu by sa v budúcnosti chcela venovať aj profesionálne. Gessica je dôkazom toho, že kde je vôla, tam je cesta a sebazaprenie prináša skvelé výsledky!

I live for moments like the one on the right! It was my first time confidently wearing a crop top/tank top IN PUBLIC with no back-up jacket or t-shirt. ✨ I’ve spent my entire life feeling way too worried about what I looked like that I could never fully enjoy the moment I was in. But now I don’t have to think twice. ❤️ . Looking back, I do regret not living a little more (or a lot more). A person’s appearance should never be the cause to doubt oneself or waste precious memories in life. If there’s one thing I could tell Old Me, it’d be to realize that my worth reaches far beyond surface-value, and that 95% of people are probably not paying ANY attention to how my “legs look in that bathing suit”. . The 5% of people who do “have something to say” probably have no business saying it anyhow. And that same principle applies to today! . I think I’ve heard it all at this point. 😂 I’m too fat, I’m too skinny, I’m too thick, I’m too bony. Welp, guys, whether I’m fat or skinny, I think it’s a call only I should be making 🤷🏻‍♀️ As long as I am healthy and feel confident, that is what matters. At the end of the day, that’s what should matter for you too! . Life is meant to be LIVED, so find what makes you most happy and, live. 🕊 . . . #motivationmonday #transformationtuesday #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #healthjourney #weightloss #obesetobeast #wlcommunity #wwcommunity #weightlossbeforeandafter #extremeweightloss #weightlossmotivation #sidebyside #weightlossinspiration #naturalweightloss #transformationfitnation #beforeandafter #influencer #wlsupport #transformation #trainandtransform #weightlossquotes #christianweightloss #womenshealth #100poundsdown

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” ☝🏼 Sister, I hope you know that as long as there is breath in your lungs, there is HOPE for your life! . I know weight loss is one of the most daunting-looking feats to accomplish, but the reality is, all you need is a little belief in yourself and some patience and flexibility. . I’m not ignorant to life’s struggles. I know you’re probably going through so much right now that trying to lose weight seems impossible. I really thought so, too. I had just gotten kicked out of my ex-step dad’s house (his new wife’s request), was working on getting my GED (HS drop out), and just starting my first job when I started trying to lose weight. . Something I don’t mention a lot (probably because I want people to know that there is hope and a solution for this & I don’t want you to feel stuck in this) is that I’ve also battled several mental health issues. I was diagnosed with manic depression (which is another term for bipolar disorder) and severe anxiety disorder at age 16. Needless to say, my upbringing and home life was nothing short of chaotic and toxic – and this is all just another reason why Jesus Christ means so much to me (He is my HEALER🙏🏼). . Trying to completely change my health and lifestyle, while living out my newfound faith, while trying to stay positive through all my rocky circumstances, was challenging. It was. But the one thing I never let go of was my desire to CHANGE. I actually WANTED TO CHANGE! . Do you? Do you really want to change? Because the first and most important step in wanting to do anything in life, is actually wanting it! Once you decide what you REALLY want to do – then you can start looking for ways to take action. But until you’ve got your mind made up – change will seem like an impossible feat. But please know: if I could do this, so can you. I promise.🙏🏼 . . . #transformationtuesday #weightlossjourney #weightloss #transformation #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealth #wlcommunity #fitfam #weightlossbeforeandafter #extremeweightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #fitbitcommunity #transformationfitnation #beforeandafter #wlsupport #christianmentalhealth #christianweightloss

Confidence. ⭐️ It isn’t something that only a select few have, nor is it something that you can earn. It is a choice. Confidence is a constant choice, commitment, and belief in yourself: your power, abilities, worth, value, and purpose. It takes practice, though. Confidence is loving yourself continuously and unconditionally; not needing another person to like you or what you do just so you can like yourself. Once YOU believe in yourself and YOU like yourself, knowing that what you do and who you are makes a difference, everything changes. . . . #facetofacefriday #weightlossjourney #weightloss #transformation #healthjourney #beginnerworkout #wlcommunity #workoutmotivation #weightlossbeforeandafter #extremeweightloss #weightlossmotivation #fitspiration #weightlossinspiration #confidence #losingweight #beforeandafter #girlswholift #wlsupport #bodypositive #personaltrainer #christianweightloss #lost100pounds #120poundsdown
