What is Jacqueline's Journey?

I have lost over 300 pounds by changing my diet and exercising.  I am sharing my story to help inspire and motivate others to know that anything is possible if you work hard, believe in yourself and never give up.  I am a body positive and self-love activist who is learning to love myself and loves encouraging others to do the same. My weight loss journey has helped me learn more about myself as well.  I enjoy sharing my passions for fashion, food, and fitness as ways to express myself.  I really enjoy weaving fashion, food, and fitness into my motivational and inspirational social media and blog posts.

Fashion has always played a huge role in my life.  When I weighed over 500 pounds, Fashion was non-existant in my life.  I had to buy and wear what would fit from online retailers.


I love cooking and baking.  I also love sharing recipes along with some of my favorite foods and snacks!

I never would have thought that I would say this but fitness has become a huge part of my life…I actually LOVE working out.  I love how it makes me feel, the people I have met while exercising and putting together new outfits to wear to the gym.
