This is Jen. I think her story is important because in the last nine months Jen has lost over 100 pounds. With a lot of hard work, blood, sweat, tears and the support of her husband and 4 beautiful children, Jen is a new woman! Like many of us, Jen has struggled with her weight, body image and self confidence for as long as she can remember. I’m sure many of you now reading this can relate with your own personal struggles and desires to look and feel prettier or better about yourselves. One day, after having enough, she made a decision that would change her life forever. Jen opted for bypass surgery. Many might ho and hum at the thought of surgery for weight loss. Listen closely. Surgery is not “the easy way out” as some might want to argue. It’s just has hard as any other diet that exist, if not harder! Recovering from surgery without the ability to consume the nutrition your body needs to heal is physically and emotionally exhausting, and beyond frustrating. Your body goes through an intense and excruciating detox – you know that feeling you get on day 2 or 3 of your diet? Now multiply that by 100 and then compound it with the pain and discomfort that comes with a major surgery. If anything, I believe that Jen is a brave and tough fighter. She wanted to make a change for the better in her life, she took control and she did. Today, she’s 130 lbs smaller, an avid Crossfitter, more comfortable in her own skin than ever! And might I add … A total Knockout!! Doesn’t she look a bit like Krisite Alley? 😀 Congratulations on all your hard work Jen! You are BEAUTIFUL!
“Having hair and makeup was such a new experience. I felt like I was literally going to be on the cover of vogue! Every girl should be pampered every now and then. I felt instantly more confident with hair and makeup and wardrobe. Posing was made easy by guidance and it was such fun! When I saw the first image I was in awe. I honestly would’ve cried had I not been around so many new faces but to always see myself as a 320 lb woman and then to see myself like this was a shock to my brain. It was like I was looking at someone else. But to know it sure was me after all my hard work….was nothing short of amazing. Jasmine is a great and wonderful artist with a pure ability to make a woman’s true beauty shine through. I’m forever thankful for this experience.” – Jen Morias
