160-Pound Weight-Loss Transformation on Instagram

Jessica Lost Over 160 Pounds in a Year, and It All Started With Portion Control

The Jessica you see today on Instagram looks completely different than the Jessica you would have seen a year ago. She's lost over 160 pounds and documented her weight-loss journey along the way. She credits her accomplishment to portion control and regular exercise, and you can regularly see her working out at the gym or going for a run.

Jessica admits her road to weight loss definitely wasn't an easy one, but it was rewarding all the same. "A year and a half ago I would have never in a million years thought I would be where I am today over 170lbs down with 170 THOUSAND people following me on this journey," she wrote in a recent post. "It blows my mind everyday and I couldn't be anymore thankful."

She also said she has a few bags of old clothes that don't fit anymore, and she likes to go through them every now and then to see how much progress she has made over the past year and a half. This allows her to reflect on her weight-loss journey as well.

This stuff is not easy to post, it is definitely hard because a year and a half ago, I was that girl on the left. I may look miserable in that pic because I wasn't smiling but I wasn't, I didn't hate my life, being over weight didn't stop me from having friends or having fun but I did feel miserable at times and I hated the way I looked. I would always complain to myself how I didn't like my body and I would always make excuses because I didn't know HOW to start. But one day it all clicked and i got my butt up and finally did something about it. I made this Instagram and post this stuff to show and prove that anything is possible. Going from over 300 pounds to 145 pounds with diet and exercise is possible! Believe you can do it and it'll happen! #motivationmonday #iammotiv8
