Real Raw Results: Busy Mom of 3, Jessie Is Making Things Happen & Changing Her Life

We had the opportunity to chat with Jessie Johnson. Check out out her amazing transformation, what inspired her to change, and find out how she has been changing her life below!

Q: When did you start your journey?

A: So I started my journey on July 2 of this year. I was 4 months postpartum at the time after our third baby.

Q: What made you want to make a change?

A: It had been my heaviest pregnancy and I was not happy with my body, and I had hit a plateau in weight loss. I don’t have a gym membership and didn’t want to drag 3 kids anywhere to work out. So I loved that Bree’s program could give a jump start and a set plan to get back to a healthy lifestyle.

Q: What are some of your go-to favorite meals?

A: I felt so good eating the foods on the meal plan. I loved the oven roasted chicken sausage and veggies. It was a big portion, tasted great, and it was similar to dinners I was used to making.

I also loved the post-workout snacks. It was a treat to look forward to! I had a week-long family reunion right in the middle of the program, so I brought my weights with me, got my workouts in, and tried to adjust the meals as best I could to be macro friendly. Ultimately, it came down to a commitment and desire to change. I knew I could do it for 6 weeks.

Q: What are some supplements that have helped?

A: I use the IdealRaw Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein and most often mixed it with almond milk. The taste took a little getting used to, but I’ve grown to really love it!

 Q: What tips do you have for others starting out?

 A: My tip for others starting would be to utilize the meal plan template Bree offers as much as possible!!

Q: What are some of your biggest victories?

A: A huge victory for me was working out 6 out of 7 days for 6 weeks straight! I don’t know if I’ve ever done that in my life, and I learned that I don’t have to kill myself in the workout.

It was better to listen to my body and modify when I needed, so I didn’t dread doing the workout. They were short but very effective!

Q: How has this changed your life?

A: This has changed so much in my life. It has changed how I view healthy eating. I feel more knowledgeable about how to adjust meals to eat what I want and still stay on track.

It has changed how my body looks and I feel strong again!! I’m currently doing the program my second time through and adding reps or upping weights. It feels amazing and I’m so glad I’m making myself a priority.

Q: How much weight/inches have you lost?

I stayed committed to working out every day and being good about the meal plan. I started seeing results after week 1, so that really encouraging! There’s actually only a 4-pound difference between my start and finish pictures, but the toning and inches were a huge difference!
