Jessica Marie Garcia Weight Loss
Jessica Marie Garcia went through a massive weight loss journey and currently weighs at 127 lbs or 58 kgs. She recently opened up about her insecurities from being obese a d also suffered from diabetes, which made her lose weight drastically.
She reported how she has been obese ever since she was a child and her mother would feed her with extremely protein rich diet that made her gain weight like crazy. Being unconscious about this cycle made her later extremely insecure about her appearance and binge eat or eat out of guilt if anyone ever commented on her blooming size or figure. Her ordeal with her overweight journey became extra taxing when she’d have to go for the “big girl” auditions in Latin soaps despite shedding off a few kilos. She’d also be controlled by her grandmother on what to eat, what to wear and how to turn herself into a more wanted, attractive and beautiful version. All of these took quite a hit at her mental health.
However, she later discovered that she was prone to diabetes and heart risk which made her rethink her life choices. She switched from drinking nine coke cans a day to living on carrots, potatoes and vitamin rich diet supplemented with healthy doses of protein and carbohydrates. Besides she started exercising seriously, taking up Pilates, yoga, swimming and even kickboxing.
Now down by 75 lbs, the actress feels herself to be more beautiful than ever. She is of the view that true beauty reflects from whatever’s inside of you, irrespective of what you eat, how you dress, how much you weigh or anything that takes away from your confidence. She is at that stage, where a few extra pounds doesn’t bother her, but taking precautions to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep herself fit and fabulous is her primary goal.
