Jamie's History With Food, Fitness, and Weight
Jamie told POPSUGAR that she's struggled with her weight since childhood. "I tried every fad diet and even took prescription diet pills as a teen," she said. She'd lose some weight, but always gained it back because she wasn't following a plan that was sustainable.
She always loved working out, but had a lot to learn when it came to nutrition. In college, she developed hypothyroidism (having an underactive thyroid), which resulted in gaining a lot of weight. "I thought that once I was diagnosed and received medication, the extra weight would magically fall off, but boy was I wrong," Jamie said. It took her many years to find a program that helped her lose the weight.
