Hey my name is Jess. 22 years old. Loving and living life, trying to be the best person I can be. I am a massage therapist (yay! officially certified as of May 21!!!), living in the wonderful city of San Francisco. I LOVE to travel, I am a bit of a flirt, love to go out meet new people, dance with boys, shop, hike, swim, date.... all that good stuff. I just don't want my weight to ever hold me back from doing (or feeling comfortable doing) anything anymore.

I've been battling with weight issues my whole life. I've been yo-yo dieting since I was 14, going up and down 20/30 or so lbs almost every year. And every time I would gain the weight back, I'd gain just a little more then the time before. I got as high as 191 lbs at one point. And at 5'2, that is just not okay. Funny thing is, I love to work out. I love to be healthy. I am a swimmer. I am (was) and athlete. I am VERY knowledgable in exercise and sport science, holistic medicine, stress management, nutrition.... but do I always practice what I preach? That would be a No. I gotta get it together. I am young. I don't want to lose weight just for vanity's sake, but so I can be even more active and productive then I already am.... and I think it will be a great start for my new career!

I'm so glad to have found this Team. I recently graduated from a 720 hour massage program and also just got certified to practice massage/health education in California. Wooo go me! lol. I am looking to open a private practice using mixed modalities to promote stress management, body awareness, and even weight loss. I spent 5 days a week/4-6 hours a day with a group of 16 students in my class... all like minded, yet sooooo different, it created a great energy and family dynamic. Now that I am graduated, I am kind of lost without that sense of a warm energetic supportive environment that I got from all of my massage friends.

highest / starting(this time around) / current / goal
191 / 184 / 176 / 134

I hope to reach my goal by October 21, 2011.... Which Is my annual trip to Vegas



Love,
Jess
