Jessica gave me the tools to make a lifestyle change and stop hiding
“I was one of those girls, the ones always on a diet, always trying out the newest fitness fad and always failing. I was chubby girl. Not quite fat not quite thin. My floaty clothes hiding a multitude of sins. Jessica gave me the tools to make a lifestyle change and stop hiding behind my floaty wardrobe. I began working with Jessica a few months back to help kickstart my fitness routine and shed some weight before I got married. I went to the gym but was kidding myself as to how much effort I was actually putting in. Working with Jessica has given me the confidence to change my whole attitude to fitness, to believe in myself and to push my own limits. She put me at ease from the very first session and has helped me to achieve moves and goals in the gym I never ever dreamed I would be able to do. For the first time I can actually see a change in my body shape and it was all down to the amazing guidance of Jessica. She makes you feel comfortable and safe in the gym and proves to you that you can do it!” – Seanamarie, Doha.
I will be forever grateful for her help and advice
“All I can say is that I was blessed when Jessica walked through my door. I will be forever grateful for her help and advice, and helping me look great for my sons wedding. I only wish she was still in Doha. Thank you again Jessica. xx” – Rita, Doha
Jess promised that, with corrected and more mindful eating, I can have my cake and eat it too! And she was right.
“As a person who struggled with weight in childhood, and then corrected the problem in early adulthood, I’ve always been someone conscious of food intake. In some ways obsessed. I love to eat, cook and enjoy good food with friends. Being pregnant with my first child in 2014/2015 I took it to the next level and completely let myself go, eating whatever I wanted as I was “eating for two”. To be honest, the bad habits started a few months before I was even pregnant that year. Reckless and mindless “social eating and drinking” as well as no portion control led me to bring my usual 62kg weight to 69kg when I found out I was pregnant. Add the 11kg I gained in pregnancy and I ended up the biggest I’ve ever been with anxiety about my weight and a lot of work to do and no idea where to start. You see, bad habits creep up on you. I, as well as many of my friends, viewed myself as a person who eats healthy. I often choose salads, wraps, etc for meal choices and love vegetables to bits. So why wasn’t I losing weight?
Enter here my friend Jessica, who had the same struggles as me and overcame her issues with flying colours. She even studied nutrition and fitness as it became her life passion! Jess got me. She knew I didn’t want extreme restricted eating like no fat or no carbs, she also knew I love my Friday night pizza and more often than just weekly wining and dining. Jess promised that, with corrected and more mindful eating, I can have my cake and eat it too! And she was right. She taught me about correct portions, macros and micros, calorie counting (the RIGHT calories) and being mindful, i.e. Knowing what’s going in and how much of it.
My husband and I were astounded with how easy and successful the approach was! I followed Jess’s advice, never felt deprived and I lost 8kg in four months! Now I’m 11 weeks pregnant with my next baby and weigh 4kg less than I did at 6 weeks with my first. It feels great, I have so much more energy and feel much less anxiety about food and social eating situations!” – Christina, Cape Town.
