Jessica was diagnosed with high cholesterol and hypertension at a very young age. She decided to get her health on the right track in order to avoid medication. When Jessica downloaded PumpUp 8 months ago, she sought motivation that was exclusively related to fitness. "I wanted to be held accountable every single day over the course of my new journey," she insisted. "With PumpUp, I am held accountable every day. Every time I log in, I see motivation. The people and comments keep me going."
Prior to PumpUp, Jessica constantly felt tired and unwilling to control her exercise or eating habits. "My lifestyle before PumpUp was slow paced," she remembered. "I had low energy and I ate whatever I wanted. I didn't have control over my eating habits nor did I have any exercise routine." With the help of the PumpUp community, Jessica now makes a commitment to exercise at least 3 times per week. She maintains a diet that is low in processed sugar and she has lost [a ton of weight]. "Eight months ago, when I started my lifestyle change, I never thought I'd be waking up at 6 am to work out and be cooking egg whites in the kitchen," she said. "I don't care how slow my progress is. All I care about is how much happier and energetic I feel."
Over the last few months, Jessica lost a staggering 50 pounds. Moving forward, Jessica hopes to get stronger and to lose 10 more pounds. "Using PumpUp, I have accomplished being active, eating better, and enjoying my new energetic lifestyle," she mentioned. "My motivations are my PumpUp family, my family, and my friends."
