La drástica decisión que tomó una joven para sentirse bien en su matrimonio… ¡Bajó 60 kilos!
RECOMENDADO PARA TI
¡Es que se pasó!
No lo pensó dos veces y lo cumplió. Y es que la joven Jennifer Ginley ha dejado a todos impactados en las redes sociales al mostrar al mundo su impresionante cambio físico… ¡Bajó 60 kilos!
¿El motivo? La mujer estaba aburrida de los problemas que le provocaba su peso, impidiéndole, por ejemplo, ir a un parque de diversiones porque los asientos eran muy pequeños para su físico, o cuando debía abordar el autobús.
A raíz de esto es que decidió comenzar una nueva vida y adoptó una alimentación saludable además, de realizar ejercicios. “Cuando me encontré comprando ropa de talla 26 para las vacaciones que había estado esperando durante tanto tiempo, supe que algo tenía que cambiar. Tuve que pedir un extensor de cinturón de seguridad en el avión, no pude disfrutar todo y sólo podía montar en los juegos con asientos ajustados para gente más grande y quedé horrorizada cuando vi las fotos”, señaló la mujer al The Mirror.
La joven añade que “Una foto mía con la Sirenita – mi personaje favorito de Disney – en realidad me impactó. Me veía tan mal y poco saludable que lloré, preguntándome cómo y por qué me había hecho eso, vi una nueva luz“.
Pero su reto comenzó cuando su pareja le propuso matrimonio. “Mi novio Luke y yo hemos estado juntos por más de 11 años y siempre solía disuadirlo de proponerme matrimonio porque yo no podía imaginarme a mí misma como una novia con la talla que tenía. Alcancé mi objetivo de peso en poco más de un año después de unirme a Slimming World y, justo antes de Navidad, Luke me pidió que me casara con él. Fue una sensación tan increíble poder decir ‘Sí’, sin ni siquiera pensar un segundo sobre mi peso, y no pude esperar para ir a comprar mi vestido“, indicó la joven.
¡Mira su impresionante cambio! Es que realmente parece otra…
Please go and take a look at the BBC North West Tonight Facebook page!! Pizza omelette is making the news haha!! This is all so surreal!! Take a look at my video filmed today in my home. I’m live on air just after 6.30pm tonight on BBC North West tonight. Those of you not in the north west can stream online I’m sure. I am SO excited (and nervous but let’s not focus on that )! Let me know what you think?! ❤
#throwbackthursday My summer holidays exactly one year apart. ☀️ In the left picture I had already been on SW one month, I had lost 1 stone and felt great! I started at a size 24/26 and was excited on that holiday as I was more 22/24. The picture on the right is me 1 month after hitting target! I had lost 9 stone 1.5 lb in one year and felt amazing!! I went on holiday with a case full of size 8 and 10 clothes and wore a bikini for the first time in years!! I’ve been proud of myself every single step of the way. I can’t tell you how important I feel that aspect is. The whole world sees the effects of your weight loss and your nearest and dearest will be proud of you. Only YOU although will know the real change and feel the affects of it everyday as it’s all in the mind. Become a stronger person everyday, a person you can be proud of. I’ve achieved many things in my life but without doubt this weight loss makes me more proud than all of that put together. When food is your thing, you weakness, your emotional crutch, whatever, it is hard to find a way out as everyone has to eat. At my lowest points I thought the only way to change was rule out food. I would calorie count to barely nothing, do slimfast, lighterlife and cambridge weight plan. As a student I spend so much money on horrid meal replacement plans. SW gave me back my life, it made my trust myself with real food and it made me know that I am truly capable of anything I put my mind too. It’s not easy. I lost this weight naturally with only diet, no exercise. The old me told myself that weren’t possible, the old me doubted these types of transformation pictures. Simply because it was another affirmation that I was still too weak, I was still unable to achieve the same. I joined SW four times, I’ve failed countless times, NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU! I never fully enjoyed anything before, my weight was always an issue holding me back. The happiness I live now is indescribable and it’s all because I fight that old me everyday. It’s not easy but it is possible. I always remember two things – it’s only food, it’s not magical AND willpower is like a muscle the more you use it, the stronger it gets. You CAN do it ❤
#mondaymotivation The left ‘before’ picture came up on Facebook memories yesterday, that was me exactly 2 years ago. Just under 4 months before I joined @slimmingworld for the final time. I was in a Chinese restaurant with my sister and friends. I was really shocked when I seen it. I have lotssss of before pictures because my weight never made me shy away from the camera but I would hide my torso when I could. A side picture really shows my size. As you can see my belly is literally touching the table, it used to touch my steering wheel when driving too. I carried probably 4 stone plus around my torso I’d say. When I look back I remember those moments, that little internal moment of dread in my mind. I would literally dread seeing the photo. I truly didn’t like how I was living, I weren’t happy overweight at all. Food controlled me and I thought I was so in love with it, I could never change. And what happened?! My love for food remained and I got to target. You see I used to think food to love was the worst type only. That night I would have ordered a couple of starters, a meal with chips, fried rice, soft noodles and I would have had a dessert. I’ve eaten at that same resteraunt a few times since and food optimised my way through, enjoying myself MORE as I didn’t leave feeling sick from too much food or regretful from my choices, I left feeling full and proud. I have changed my attitude. No matter what change we try to achieve in life, if we are negative we’re our own worst enemy. You cannot look at your salad, vegetables and fruit etc. and think ‘diet’ food and other negative stuff. Get your mind in a better place and you’ll truly enjoy every day. Now I look at my food and feel so proud of how nutritious it is and how much goodness I’m giving my body. That’s when the weight falls off, it is minimal effort with a positive mindset. The most amazing thing with @slimmingworld is that I lost all that weight whilst eating out, having indulgences and living life to the max. I became a more social and positive person ever day. Food no longer controls me! I live in true contentment WILLPOWER IS LIKE A MUSCLE, THE MORE YOU USE IT THE STRONGER IT GETS
#transformationtuesday On the left is me one month into my final SW journey (June 2015), I had already lost 1 stone there! I had a full week off plan, gained 5.5 lb, got straight back on plan when I got home and lost 5.5 lb the following week! Right is me NYE just gone, wearing my size 6 top from @riverisland and a size 8 skirt. It was the first year since I was 13/14 years old that I weren’t going into the new year with the dreaded ‘lose weight’ task hanging over me! In all honestly I sometimes wondered if this would ever be my life, if I’d ever be capable to get slim and stay slim. I owe my whole life to @slimmingworld as it truly made me trust myself with food, it allowed me to conquer my food issues. Do not for a second think any of the target members had a straightforward run, that we had bucket loads of speed free food and amazing losses each week. I’d lost 1 stone in 4 weeks at that point in my before picture, I had never lost that much before, yet I still plated up 2/3 plates of beige food and 2 plates of desserts that week on holiday. Your food addiction, issues, whatever you want to call them don’t disappear overnight. You have to be consistent and calm. I say calm as one week you may not get the weight loss you deserve and you might want to turn to your old friend, mega syn food for comfort, don’t, I guarantee you, you will feel worse. You know what I literally used to say out loud to myself when faced with temptation?! For example – *sees pizza* ‘oh my god, look at that, I love pizza but you know what I love more?! Losing weight’. I’d think of stepping on the scales and pizza became less attractive. It worked a treat, I had to remind my dramatic food loving self that it is only food! Pizza isn’t going anywhere, I’ll eat it again in the future but I had to learn every single time I seen or felt like pizza I couldn’t have it. Developing a new mentality and strength is hard, it takes time but you are seriously doing the best thing ever. I was a notorious failure; normality, happiness, health and ultimately your weight loss dreams are possible with @slimmingworld Remember willpower is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it gets
#facetofacefriday On the left is a few days before I joined Slimming World, I was fed up, always exhausted and completely ruled by food. I remember taking that picture as sort of ‘before’, just to remember those days when I decided to rejoin. I felt embarrassed going back and rejoining heavier than ever but aren’t I glad I did?! I was so fed up of wasting my life overweight. Well done to you January joiners, I didn’t join until May, I failed a few more diets, tried SW from home and comfort ate for another four months after New Year! We all have those moments where we have to go THAT IS ENOUGH. If you have reached that point, never forget it because it will fuel you on when you have difficult days. I do it even now!! When I’m tempted by something that will take me off plan for no good reason I say to myself ‘Jennifer don’t you think you’ve had enough of *insert bad food* in your time?!’. I need that type of mental reasoning. It’s not depriving myself, it’s knowing when indulging is worth it for my own mentality. I NEVER want to feel out of control ever again and I simply won’t let food ruin me the way it used too, I always have that little voice inside my head that reminds me ‘it’s only food Jen’. One thing I really hate (and I hate that word) is when assumptions are made that you’re not enjoying yourself if you’re not indulging in food. For example eating out and food optimising your way through it. OF COURSE you are enjoying yourself, you’re with friends/family and fulfilling your hungers needs with delicious food. Do you need that 45 syn dessert to go home and know you’ve enjoyed yourself?! NO! Don’t let anyone place their ‘enjoying yourself’ models onto you! Especially a naturally slim person who has never had food issues. Maybe they can go into a restaurant and order a 3 course mega syn meal and come out physically and mentally unscathed. I can without doubt do that now at at target (or in weight loss mode on special occasions) BUT it is difficult mentally to do that in weight loss mode without doing any damage. YOU CAN ENJOY your life whilst gaining control and health, and achieving you dreams with SW
#mondaymotivation Well done to anyone beginning their weight loss journey now, it will be the most worthwhile and incredible thing you’ll ever do. After that picture on the left was taken in January 2015 it took me four more months of comfort eating and trying to ‘diet’ before walking through the doors of my @slimmingworld class. If you scroll down my page I’ve wrote about different parts of my journey under each transformation picture. My journey in a nutshell – I’m 5 foot 5 “, without exercise I lost 9 stone 1.5 lb in one year, I went on to lose a little more in the following couple of months and my overall loss is currently 9 stone 11 lb. I went from a size 24/26 to and 8/10 in one year purely with food optimising I want to give you all a little warning that I wish I’d of had – do NOT compare yourself to anyone. Especially if you are following SW instagrams for guidance and inspiration, even more so if you’re new to SW. Do NOT compare your food intake to target members who have changed their relationship with food, and are smaller so have different nutritional needs! I posted EVERY single thing I ate from joining for 18 months (May 15 – Nov 16). If you scroll back you’ll see that after weigh in I’d have a high syn treat for the first couple of months and I ate lots more food. Your needs change and your intake adapts. When you start don’t look at extra easy SP, don’t reduce your intake when you remain hungry, if you want a huge bowl of pasta, a huge jacket potato or 15 syns a day have them!! Don’t worry that others aren’t eating the same way. TRUST the plan and adapt it to your own needs. Food optimising is bloody brilliant, the free food, unlimited concept is revolutionary for us food lovers. Just do as it asks and fill yourself up of speed free foods first. With a big bowl or pasta have lots of veggies/salad; same with any other meal. @slimmingworld turned me (a notorious weight loss failure) into a person who trusted themselves with food and it gave me a new healthy relationship with food. Take it one day at a time and remember WILLPOWER IS LIKE A MUSCLE, THE MORE YOU USE IT THE STRONGER IT GETS I know you can do it!! ❤
#transformationtuesday Left – January 2015 feeling so uncomfortable and unhappy. A few pounds away from my heaviest weight, four months before joining @slimmingworld Right – August 2016 feeling so comfortable and happy in my own skin, confident ahead of walking down the aisle as my best friend’s bridesmaid The physical change feels crazy, I sometimes double take at my own reflection, my mind still hasn’t caught up! BUT the biggest change is my MIND! I now actually believe myself when I say ‘I will…..’. I’ve never been so proud of myself, I could literally write a book on my weight loss attempts. I got to the point where food had to be ruled out, in my mind that was the only logic, I had no control!! What do you think I done after Cambridge weight plan, lighterlife and celebrity slim? Binged and gained more weight! THAT is not normality and it was reinforcing my belief that I had NO control. Forget DIETS, join SW and food optimise your way to a strong mind and health boy! SW is a revelation and it made me trust myself with food. There were times I genuinely thought I’d never be capable, I hated my false promises of starting a diet every Monday, much more than I hated how I looked. Plus I spent one year socialising all whilst gaining this new me! I didn’t become happy once I reached target, I became happier with every single day of my journey. It doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time to go from self destruction mode to WILLPOWER of steel but you CAN DO IT! Seriously if you knew the old me you’d believe me when I told you if I can anyone can. I’m 5 foot 5, I was 19 stone 4 lb, I’m now HALF that (9 stone 9 lb!) and got here without exercising. Find me a better food plan that food optimising?! I think you’ll find yourself unable. HAPPY TUESDAY BEAUTIFUL HUMANS! Have a GREAT day on plan, flex that will power and go to bed proud of yourself ❣️ #slimmingworld#slimmingworlduk#iloveslimmingworld#slimmingworldinsta#foodoptimising#slimmingworldfollowers#slimmingworldtarget#targetmember#swtargetmember#slimmingworldtargetmember#weightloss#weightlossjourney#beforeandafter#weightlosstransformation
