Powerlifting Athlete: Jessica

Posted by Kinda Fit Kinda Fat on


“I first began my fitness journey in 8th grade when my aunt opened up my very first 24 Hour Fitness gym pass for me. I remembered looking at other "skinny" girls and wanting to look like them so I would spend almost 2 hours everyday (yes, including weekends) at the gym doing cardio. I would also sometimes starve myself just to binge on food the following week. It was a very unhealthy lifestyle until I got into powerlifting in 11th grade. I was lucky enough to have made friends at the gym who are powerlifters. I started to learn more about it and eventually fell in love with the sport. Here I am today, having already participated in my first meet in January 2018.

 

I am in complete awe at the message the KFKF brand looks to encourage. I 100% identify with the goal of staying fit but also enjoying food. I want to help other people realize that you do not have to give up the satisfaction of eating your favorite food in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. More than that, I want to help this brand re-define the word "fat." Fat should not be a word to shame anyone or prevent anyone from embracing who they are. I want to help reach out to people who are just getting into the fitness world and hopefully motivate them to understand that living a healthy lifestyle is a long-term goal that could be met with a flexible diet.

 

I want to be able to grow as much as I can, and then just keep growing and learning some more. I would like to think I have evolved from being an overweight child who hated food and her physical appearance, to a strong woman who embraces herself more and more everyday.

 

My name is Jessica. I have strange addiction to bread and I use the bread carbs to fuel my workouts and I am Kinda Fit Kinda Fat." - Jessica, UCR Student, KFKF Athlete.
