Hi! My name is Jessie and I’m 31 years old living in Ohio. My journey has been an absolute roller-coaster of ups and downs but I’m here today finally finding my true self and living authentically.
To make a long story short, I was overweight my whole childhood, and my weight fluctuated up and down through my teens and early 20s, always struggling. I had eventually lost 80lbs, only to gain about 60 lbs of it back after my husband and I becoming unexpectedly pregnant in 2013.
I experienced a terrible pregnancy and suffered from post partum depression and anxiety. I eventually came across my current coaches (and bosses now actually!) who helped change my life, starting with my mindset. That was the missing piece. They helped me transition to veganism and a plant based diet, meeting me where I was in my journey and never judging me once.
Over the course of the next 2 years I imperfectly made steps towards a healthier plant based lifestyle. I found a love for running, a passion for veganism and I am now about to run my second half marathon this weekend.
I am inspired to become a walking billboard of health, wellness (mental and physical), vitality and athleticism for this beautiful lifestyle. I want to be the change that needs to be seen in this world and inspire others that it’s possible for anyone else to do the same things I have done.
I was never an “athlete”, I’ve always struggled, even to this day. But I’m doing the damn thing, and continue to challenge myself. Great things never come from our comfort zones! I am down about 70lbs from heaviest, I am registered for my first full marathon this fall! My plant based diet has been, and will continue to be, pivotal in my success!
