Parents naturally want to set a good example for their kids, but no one said it’s easy. Jess, 26 and a mother of two came to us with a strong desire to be a healthy role model for her family.
When Jess started, she told us that when entering adulthood, finding time for herself and the time to be active was the most difficult thing. She said, “I find that as a parent I [used to] put a lot of emphasis on my kids being active and playing sports that I [wasn’t] leading by example.”
Now, Jess trains ForeverStrong three times a week and has made incredible progress in regaining control of her life. She’s more active, makes better eating habits and has much more energy (we absolutely adore Jess’ witty attitude and love being around her)!
When it comes to eating with her children, Jess said, “I find that I frequently will sneak a bite of whatever they are eating even if I have made something more healthy for myself or even if I’m not hungry.” Ordering out and fast food are also temptations that Jess tries to avoid.
Jess used to drink four to six sodas a day! But with consistent strength training and food journaling, Jess has cut back to ONE soda a day if none. Jess’ healthier alternative is an easy DIY fruit flavored water — all she does is put frozen fruit in her water. Simple and positive changes like these are what leads Jess on her personal journey to a healthier lifestyle.
After just SIX months, Jess is down a total of 23 pounds, has gone down two dress sizes and is completely off her daily blood pressure regime. Check out these amazing transformation photos of Jess:
“I may whine a little when I’m [training], but the feeling after I’ve finished a session makes it all worth it. ForeverStrong has firstly helped me take control back of my health, both physically and mentally. Giving up has never seemed like an option with the supportive staff behind me each day. Though they are not in my home while I’m eating (and ordering food) they are in my head.”
“I am setting goals and reaching them. [I’m] setting a good example for my kids instead of just making them do it. I’m more active, I have more energy and I don’t get tired as easily. [ForeverStrong] has given me my life back.”
“It’s not going to be easy, but nothing in life is and the best things in life are the things you work the hardest for.”
