Jasmine focused on getting in shape after she graduated from college in 2012, but when her father died from cancer a year later, she turned to food for comfort while she was grieving.

Jasmine weighed 300lbs when she left the hospital after delivering her second daughter. While she loved her little girls, she was struggling to cope with her new weight.  

‘I looked at myself in the mirror and I was in so much pain. My knees were shot. My back hurt and I was tired,’ she said. ‘My anxiety was so bad I didn’t want to leave the house.’
