Good morning 🙋🏽♀️ I thought it would be nice to do another WHO AM I post since I’ve gained quite a few followers these past few days (as always feel free to stop reading now if you’re an OG follower 😘)
SO I’m Jasmine, I am 29, a Health Care Social Worker, Mama to Jianna aka Jiji (1) and Jurnee (almost 3) and partner to Jeremy (@kingkane_vb 😍). On January 1st of this year I decided to start my FINAL weight loss journey (no more starting and giving up) Jeremy also began his. In January I was 2 months post partum and almost 300lbs. We truly wanted to become the best version of ourselves for our physical, mental and emotional health. In the picture on the left I was 1 month in to my journey and about 20 lbs down.
🔹I started following the @21daymealplan and began working out at home 30 minutes a day (you can find a detailed list of the workouts I’ve done in my workout highlight).
🔹The majority of my workouts have been at home
🔹I do have “cheat” meals but not very often (once or twice a month)
🔹I lost a total of 120 lbs in 9.5 months, gained a couple back during maintenance and am currently working towards my lowest weight of the year which I plan to hit before the end of December.
🔹I started this account at the end of April for accountability and never dreamed it would grow so rapidly. I love connecting with all of you and do my best to get DM’s when I have time 💜
There is so much more but who wants to read a full book of a caption so I’ll save that for another day .. Please check out my highlights for lots more info and have a great 🐪 day 😁.

First, they’ll ask you why you’re doing it. Then, they’ll ask you how you did it. 🤷🏻♀️
You know what I find funny? The moment you become successful or reach a certain goal people who put you down or didn’t care much about you to begin with..start to become more interested in you and what you’re doing in your life. So many people put down my fitness dreams a few years ago. They kept asking me why and even made comments like, “you’re really not going to eat that?” “Oh, I know you won’t eat that pizza.” “I should go on the Briana diet” and the list goes on...🙈 It was crazy to find out that most people won’t support you. Majority of them will put it down or make fun of what makes them feel uncomfortable. 🙄
Over the last few years, I’ve lost 70 lbs, was featured in multiple articles, grew a social media following, started my own business, and have just had the time of my life. What people didn’t see was the countless hours spent in the gym, crying nightly just wishing that my goals would happen quicker. (I have a hard time being patient) 😅 Hoping that someday..if I worked hard enough, these dreams I had would become a reality. I muted all the negativity that came my way. Then, out of nowhere once that hard work started paying off..everyone was interested in what I was doing. I’ve noticed people who wouldn’t normally talk to me, try to become my best friends. Although, sometimes it’s hard for me to realize people are only interested when they want something from you..I have a close group of people who have been with me since day 1. Point of my rant is haha, stay true to who you are. Believe in what you’re doing. Keep working your ass off, ignore anyone who wants to put what you’re doing down..because hey, you never know if one day they’ll want to be just like you. 🙏🏼💞 #transformationtuesday#transformationphoto

#weightlosswednesday 💕 On the left a tight size 14 dress, XL tummy sucker that made me feel suffocated, and so uncomfortable that ended up ripping by the end of the night. I was the maid of honor in my cousins wedding. I wanted to do it for her but I hated standing up in front of everyone feeling the way I did about myself. Fast forward to today and I’m a whole new person is seems. Mentally and physically. I wish I had found the @21daymealplan back then! •

Reflecting back to when I first started my fitness journey, I was so intimidated by the gym and gym goers. Being so new to fitness, I didn’t want to be seen as someone that had no idea what they were doing in a gym. My weight played a big part of this, being obese in a gym heightens that insecurity... you feel as if all eyes are on you. It took time for me to feel comfortable with being vulnerable, but I got there. Don’t be afraid of working towards being a better person, YOU’VE GOT THIS!
Let’s fast forward to 2016 - about a year into my fitness journey, me and Julia were still hitting the gym consistently, my eating still wasn’t 100 but i was “eating healthy” - at this point i was still unsure how to eat healthy other than salads and low carb.
We worked out at the Golds on Memorial and we had the whole squad that would go workout - when I say whole squad - i mean 10 people deep. Every time we all walked in the guy at the front would yell “squaddd” - so, for me i was very fortunate and i had a very, very good support group in the gym.
Every time i walked into the gym, i would always joke with @_ebal and say when are you getting me a job here? Every. Single. Day. I’d bug this guy, in a joking way but low key was serious 😂
Finally one day, he told me they were hiring and i hopped all over it, he got me an interview and my next opportunity came about - i started working at Golds May of 2016, along with my two best friends that also got a job 🙌🏼😂 @juliaevee@awe_dam .
Golds was my dream job, I was in the middle of transitioning to fitness and losing weight so to be at the gym all the time, around the things i was beginning to love was literally a dream come true for me then! I was so pumped to start!

IT’S DREW RAD DAY!!!
Today is an extremely special day for me. Today is the day that I legally changed my name to Drew Rad. As many of you know I was not born with the name Drew. It was actually a name I picked up in college as a nickname that stuck with me. I loved being called Drew. It felt like it fit me so much better than my birth name. While I was going through this massively dramatic physical transformation I was also going through a major personal transformation. This whole journey of discovering my true self permanently changed me for the better. I found my identity through this life changing journey. So today is my personal self declared holiday. Today’s the day I look back and remember how I changed and took control of my life. Today’s the day that I remember that miracles are possible and lives can change for the better. I was asked by a friend how I celebrate this holiday? I celebrate it with loving myself. I choose to be kind to myself. I choose to be overwhelmed with love and gratitude for this soul and body. Last year changing my name was my Christmas gift to myself. I still remember sitting before the judge when he asked me “Why do you want to change your name?” I sat there alone and said “Because, it’s who I am.” When the judge legalized my name it felt like freedom. It felt like I had finally made it to the other side. My daughters love Drew Rad day too. It’s a day where I was able to show them that a person can change and overcome what many would deem as insurmountable obstacles. Thank you to everyone who openly embraced this major life change. Thank you to everyone who made my new name feel loved and accepted. You’ll never know how much that truly meant to me. So here’s a selfie of me all dolled up... on my special day! I love you guys!

Such a great post. Short and to the point!

December can be an awful time of year. Seeing family you'd rather not see, being made to feel inferior in a host of categories. A little reminder, those things do not define you. 💛
Just a girl over here livinʼ her best life
Over the last couple of months Iʼve been training hard! Much more flexible with my food (tracking some weeks, estimating the others)
Iʼve been sooo busy with work, not enough sleep and overall stress was high!
My partner and I are in Bali for our anniversary and although I still work, Iʼve been getting 10-12 hours a night sleep and am feeling so zenned.
We really underestimate just HOW much of an impact sleep and stress can play on our lives!
My days have consisted of
Waking up to no alarm (Nele )
Working for a few hours
Shred Tighten and Tone Workout (upping my
intensity as I know Iʼm indulging a little more) Breaking my Fast on a big breakfast (3 pieces of Rye, PB, Honey, Egg White Veg Omelette and Fruit)
Pool Time and Lunch (Rice Paper Rolls, Green Juice, Edamame Beans and Sweet Potato)
Work again and Protein Shake
Massage and Dinner (allowing myself flexibility at dinner)
3L water -
Clayton and I work really closely together and itʼs easy for 99% of our relationship to be work... especially when you love what you do. However itʼs important for us to spend quality time together so itʼs been nice to feel relaxed a little again!

Hallo Leute heute mal was ernstes zum oben stehenden Thema ☝🏻. Es gibt sehr viele Menschen die sich für ihr Aussehen schämen oder sich nicht wohl fühlen. Auch ich hab zu diesen Menschen gehört. Allerdings liegt das nicht an dir, sondern an allen anderen ! Warum fühlt man sich unwohl ? Weil alle anderen sagen, dass man nicht schön ist 🥺. Aber du bist schön ! Nur weil die Gesellschaft sagt man muss 90/60/90 sein, muss man es noch lang nicht ! Wichtig ist, dass du dich in deinem Körpers wohl fühlst und das es dir gut geht ! Nur wenn dies nicht der Fall ist, kannst du überlegen was zu ändern aber nicht, weil irgendeine unbedeutende Person in deinem Leben Dir sagt das du „ hässlich „ oder „ Fett „ bist. Denn du bist wunderbar so wie du bist 😍.Umgib dich mit Menschen, die dich mögen und scheiß auf alle anderen ! Sie sind es nicht wert ! Lieb dich selbst und bleib Dir immer treu ❤️
Hello people today something serious about the above topic ☝🏻. There are many people who are ashamed of their looks or do not feel well. Also I belonged to this person. However this is not due to you but to all others! Why does you feel unwell? Because others say that you are not beautiful 🥺. But you are beautiful! Only because the society says you have to be 90/60/90, you still don't have to be ! Important is that you feel well in your body and that you are well! Only if this is not the case, you can consider what to change but not because some insignificant person in your life tells you that you are " ugly " or " fat ". Because you are wonderful as you are 😍.Surround yourself with people who like you and don‘t care about others! They are not worth it ! Love yourself and always stay true to yourself ❤️ #fitfam#gym💪💪 #transformationtuesday#gymgirl#weightloss#weightlossjourney#weightlosstransformation#transformation#belly#lovequotes#loveyourself#me#motivationalquotes#motivation#gymlife#training#trainhard#ootd#ootdfashion#pictureoftheday#weightlossmotivation#smile#blondehair#sport#gymislife#gym#trainlikeanangel#gymnastics#flexible
I’ve had moments of doubt.
I’ve had moments of weakness.
I’ve fallen off my routine not for a day but for days even weeks at some points
I’ve let small bumps make huge waves in my life.
I’ve lost motivation over the past year.
I’ve had glimmers of my old mentality try to pop back up. 🦋 But then I remember how many times I’ve proved to myself I AM capable.
🦋When I’m “weak” I remember what I’ve overcome to get to THIS point. 🦋 When I stray from my new lifestyle and slip back into old habits- I STOP 🛑 remember I’m HUMAN. I’m bound to make mistakes. I don’t let those negative thoughts dictate my future. Yeah, I’m disappointed but I have control over my actions. No point in beating myself down if I have the power to make it better. I continue down this road because it makes me HAPPY. I know how much my life has improved so THATS what I remind myself of. 🦋When I have those days where it feels like NOTHING is going right and my mood is seriously suffering- I count my damn blessings. For every negative I’ll make myself say 3 positives. I truly believe happiness is a choice- some days it’s much much harder than others BUT it’s worth it to strive for happiness in every day 🦋 Motivation is not something you can maintain 24/7. When you lack motivation you’ve got to call on your discipline 🔥 You can’t get the results you want from only putting in 50% of the work. 🦋 When I begin to think in old patterns... I tell myself I’m NOT the girl I was a year ago, two years ago, even 6 months ago. .
Perfection doesn’t exist- So don’t let that be your end game. Strive for PROGRESS. Mistakes are bound to happen but don’t you dare let that be enough to throw you off your course indefinitely. Dust yourself off and KEEP PUSHING. Why do you keep going? Because you REFUSE to give up on yourself this time. 🔥🙌🏻 This process is not linear. Always remember that. .
Last nights upper body burnout💪🏻🔥🔥🔥🔥 After my last final I just wanted to get in a great workout 🏋️♀️ Happy Hump day everybody!! Keep crushin those goals!! 😆
