Jessica Beniquez identified her two mistakes. After breaking those bad habits, she rapidly dropped 170-lbs.


As reported by American Web Media, Jessica's mistakes were watching her favorite Netflix shows for several hours in a row and eating fast food on a daily basis.

While doing so was fun, it was dangerous to her health.

Each passing day that she chose that lifestyle, more pounds were added to the balance and the risk of having an overweight-related problem increased.

On May 10, 2018, Jessica wrote on Instagram: 'The end of February 2016 was my turning point. I was over 320 lbs age 20 [sic]'


Thankfully, she recognized her two main problems and knew exactly how to change that behavior.

Jessica then made a life-changing decision: eat, go to work, and watch her shows.

Though it doesn’t look like much of a change, that’s exactly what she did at the beginning of her journey.

Jessica stopped eating fast food and opted for choosing healthier alternatives that drastically reduced her pound-income and help her body burn them away.


Foods high in protein and fiber were filling her fridge.

She started reading the labels of the products and stopped buying the ones that had added sugar opting for more natural options. Apart from changing her eating habits, she also started exercising more.

Even the 5-minute walk to the bus stop was hard for her, so she decided not watching Netflix for that many hours a day and get on YouTube for free workouts routines instead.

Eventually, she was healthy enough to go to the gym.


Now, 18 months after she decided to make a change in her life, Jessica is ranging between 140 and 147 pounds.


'I am now ranging between 140-147 which is LESS THAN HOW MUCH I LOST!! Over 170 lbs gone forever and NEVER COMING BACK!!! [sic]' she wrote.

Jessica has become a role model for her more than 442,000 Instagram followers and 13,000 YouTube subscribers.

Using her social media accounts, she encourages people to lose weight by telling her story and sharing important tips, including exercise routines and healthy meals.
