I'm Jessica! I am a certified weight loss coach who helps fellow Weight Watchers members stay on track when heading to Walt Disney World. I also share general tips for Weight Watchers or people heading to Disney, as I am a Lifetime WW member who lost 74 pounds and live right behind Disney.
My full time job is a social media specialist for a timeshare company; I also have worked in social media for a fitness company and for my university when I was a college student. I received a Bachelor's degree in journalism - my first job out of college was as a news producer and writer for a CBS affiliate, where my newscast was the top rated show of the hour in Southwest Florida - so I have strong writing skills and experience writing both long-form editorial copy and punchy script that is short yet demans attention.
Happy Easter and Passover, everybody! 🐣 🐰 ✡️ Throwback to last Easter when we went to Disney. It’s weird thinking that this is the first year we aren’t admiring the chocolate eggs at Grand Floridian and then heading to Magic Kingdom to meet the bunnies and watch the parade. It’s crazy how different things are now 🥺
Anyone else wishing they were at Magic Kingdom right now? 🥺 Dug through some old Festival of Fantasy photos while watching Be Our Chef on Disney+, so figured I’d pull a few to share 😊 I’m missing Disney hard right now: runs around the resorts instead of my neighborhood, hearing the fireworks every night, going to Epcot for a quick walk after dinner... I can’t wait until COVID is no longer a worry and we can enjoy it again. Hoping that’s sooner than later 🙏
Thank you @bokksu for bringing a little Japan to us here in the States so we can honeymoon while we #StayAtHome 🌸 Anthony and I should have gone about two weeks ago to Tokyo, Lake Kawaguchi, Kyoto, Osaka and Nara... but obviously that trip never happened thanks to COVID-19, so I’ve been trying to bring Japan to us, mainly in the form of cooking (and some new recipes I’ve tried have now become staples). This #Bokksu is now helping - I nearly cried when it was delivered today because I was so excited - and we are looking forward to trying some of the snacks over the coming days. I’m also really excited about the tea pairing since I’m a huge green tea fan 🍵
I had way too much fun today for our department’s spirit week - it was Disney & it’s acquired properties day, and I’ve been dying to get back into armor in a troopless time! I’m surprised my custom Zoom background didn’t swallow my helmet - I was fully expecting it to 😂 Also used this opportunity to give it a really thorough cleaning. I always like to give my bad gal and the tote she lives in a wipe down, but think about how many people touch our armor 😳 High fives, posing for pics, curious kids... ooh boy! So if you’re reading this and are a fellow cosplayer: go wash your costume if you haven’t recently!
𝐁𝐄𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐄: 😅 Lacking in self-confidence due to negative mindset & poor body image 🍫 Weird relationship with food ⚖️ Obsessed with the scale 😬 Editing pics with beauty apps to try to appear thinner (and fooling myself that it was working) 👖 Always wearing yoga pants because my 16 jeans were tight and uncomfortable (and I was refusing to admit to myself that I was a size 18) 💃 Hyper focused with how to pose in photos to hide weight 𝐀𝐅𝐓𝐄𝐑: ☺️ Self-confidence due to a more positive mindset which shifted mood and body image 🍜 Creating a healthier relationship with food where nothing is “bad” or “something I can’t have” but focusing on what makes my body feel good, including small indulgences 💪 Shifting focus from the scale to how my body looks and feels + NSVs 🙅🏼♀️ No more face tuning! 🧘🏼♀️ Wearing yoga pants during workouts and enjoying shopping for jeans (and now a size 2-4 depending on the cut/brand - women’s sizing is whack) 📸 No longer worried about posing for photos or if a candid is being taken As you can see, transformation is so much more than just the exterior... and the mental changes depend on such much more than the exterior changing. Losing weight didn’t solve all my problems, but tackling things with a more positive attitude sure did 😉 #TransformationTuesday Left: Dec 2015, 197 lbs Right: today, 133 lbs
Missing the magic? ✨ I know I’m Disney extra hard today, especially hearing Happily Ever After’s fireworks go off from my house nightly 😭 I extend this Baymax hug to each and every one of you! I’ve been getting my Disney fix in mostly with Disney+ and catching up on things like Big Hero 6: The Series (so good!) and the Mickey shorts. Plus Anthony and I love bad movies and there are a treasure trove of 70s gems on there 😂 I also want to try the Disney Zumba videos I saw someone post on Facebook! How are you getting your Disney fix at home? Let’s swap ideas in the comments ⤵️
I’m sore as hell from yesterday’s BodyCombat class, so I went back to something I haven’t done in a long time: belly dance! 💃 Did you know that I used to be in a belly dance troop when I was in high school? Swipe for some old photos! We used to dance at festivals and local Indian restaurants and I had a blast doing it. Unfortunately when I moved to Florida, I was unable to find a class I enjoyed - and that has stayed the same from Fort Myers to now Orlando 😞 But I’m super grateful I found the core-focused 30 minute class that Pop Sugar Fitness has on YouTube because it brought me back to the basics! If you’re looking for a fun at-home workout, belly dance is great. One thing I learned is that a good belly dance is able to do her entire routine in one tiny little square the size of the average tile in your house... so it’s great if you don’t have a ton of space!
