It's not always the easiest thing to maintain great health, especially when you have a busy lifestyle. This couple realized that their health was suffering, so they decided to make some drastic changes in their life. After one year of hard work, the couple has lost an unbelievable amount of weight. Now, they're here to tell you the secrets that made it happen!
Jasmine Parent is a 29-year-old mother of two from Nova Scotia, Canada.
For most of Jasmine's life, she was happy with the way her body looked. Up until 2012, she was in great shape, but then heartbreak took control of Jasmine's life.
Unfortunately, Jasmine lost her dad that year and everything started to go downhill from there.
Food became Jasmine's comfort. Instead of working through her emotions and handling them on the spot, she hid behind food to make herself happy. “I started to emotionally eat. I didn’t realize how unhappy or how anxious I was because it was just my norm,” explained Jasmine.
Throughout the years, Jasmine gave birth to two beautiful children with her partner, Jeremy Crawley.
Jasmine stepped on the scale after having her second daughter and was disgusted by the number she saw. As much as Jasmine loved being a mother, she ended up weighing 100 pounds more than she should have.
Weighing 300 pounds, Jasmine began to notice the toll it was taking on her body.
“I looked at myself in the mirror and I was in so much pain. My knees were shot. My back hurt and I was tired. My anxiety was so bad I didn’t want to leave the house.” Jasmine knew that her health was suffering, but it wasn't until she saw an old friend that something really clicked.
Jasmine has had one very special friend ever since she was 12.
Every year, they take the same picture together to celebrate their many years of friendship. When Jasmine looked at the picture from 2017, she realized that she needed to make some drastic changes in her life.
