Jennica Preston joined Real Appeal to try to lose weight she gained after the birth of her eight-year-old son.

“After my son was born, I lost my motivation to eat right and take care of myself,” says Preston. “Real Appeal helps me stay motivated to make the right choices. Right off the bat, I went cold turkey and stopped eating fast food and sodas. I started using my husband’s workout equipment to get exercise at home. A few times each week, I walk the twelve flights of stairs to my office.

In less than six months, she has already lost 32 pounds. She is on track to lose ten more in order to reach her goal weight.

“I’ve always been petite and small,” says Preston. “I’m thrilled to be getting back to the person I really am.”
