Weight Loss: Jessica Emmans

This week, we celebrate the successful weight loss of Jessica Emmans. Here’s her story:

Then + Now - Jessica Emmans

Why did you want to have your procedure?

I’ve been struggling to lose weight for a very long time and was struggling with everything from mental health to everyday health issues and being told that if I don’t lose weight, I may not be able to have children because of my weight. 

How were you feeling in your “THEN” photos?

To be honest, I hated myself, I hated always being the fat person, always putting on a fake smile always trying to hide behind “loose clothing” that wasn’t that loose

How are you feeling NOW?

OMG AMAZING!!! Even though I’m halfway to my goal weight, I feel incredible I have a lot more energy I fit into my clothes better, (smaller clothes) 

What has been your most memorable Non-Scale Victory?

Where to start? Haha, my biggest victory was when I started to feel my collar bones and they started to stick out more and more.

What was your experience like with the WLSA team?

The team at WLSA has been absolutely AMAZING, honestly, they have helped out so much,  giving me so much information and support that I would not have been able to do this without them, especially in the beginning when my anxiety was sky high, they helped me through and worked with me and didn’t make me feel like I was a number they made me feel like a was a person.

Is there anything else you’d like to include in your Story?

Even though I’m halfway through my Weight loss journey yes there are hard days, but the amazing fabulous days outweigh the bad days, and I now feel like I have a new lease on life and I’m now learning to live my best life possible and I couldn’t be happier.

WeightLoss Warrior,
