I have been putting off this blog post about Tessa simply because….I literally could not find the words to describe just how amazing this woman is! Tessa has lost more than 180 pounds over the last 4 years through diet, exercise, hard work, and more determination than I have ever seen a single person possess. She is a beast, you guys. The good kind! She has gone from 331 pounds to 147 pounds. Pick your jaw up off the floor because you’re going to want to hear even more about her!
kind. dedicated. positive. beautiful. vulnerable. giving. supportive. ambitious. committed. confident. driven. humble. courageous. inspiring. passionate. disciplined. sexy. strong. selfless. tough. amazing.
I could keep going and, honestly, I should…because when you do something completely extraordinary, you deserve to hear just how extraordinary you are. This lady has strength that some people don’t even know is possible. She was in a situation she didn’t want to be in; she wasn’t happy with her life and she changed it.
SHE changed it.
Do you know how hard that is? To break bad habits, to make sacrifices, to follow through on the promises you made to yourself?! I am so incredibly proud and honored and humbled to call this woman my friend.
If you are looking to make some changes in your life and want some motivation, make sure you are following Tessa! She’s on Facebook (www.facebook.com/tessasweightlossjourney), snapchat (username: tessawlj), and Instagram (@tessasweightlossjourney) with over 33,000 followers! She is one badass lady and I know there is nothing she sets out to do that she won’t accomplish!
I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves next but first…
Tessa, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for inspiring me on a daily basis. Thank you for letting me capture these photos for you. Thank you for being my friend and for showing me that anything is possible. I simply adore you and I am so thankful for you!
