Woman addicted to guzzling two litres of Coke a day loses a jaw-dropping 9st in just 12 months

A WOMAN who was addicted to fizzy drinks and Christmas snacks has dropped an impressive 9st.

Jessica Lovejoy, 32, is welcoming this year’s festive season with a new look, after dropping an astonishing 9st in just 12 months.

The care worker weighed 18st in August of last year and was a size 22 before turning her life around.

Jess from Dapto, New South Wales, Australia, is now a size six and weighs 8st 9lbs saying that she will have more control than ever at Christmas this year.

Jessica said: “I would drink at least two litres of Coke a day and very rarely drank water, it was always fizzy drink.

“First thing in the morning fizzy drink last thing before bed fizzy drink then brush my teeth.

“I never had self-control, I remember making a cake and putting it in the oven and then not even waiting for it to be cooked before pulling it out.

“I would eat the cake mix because I just wanted to eat the cake mix.

“I went through this process of making a cake, but I had no self-control to wait for it to be cooked.

"I lacked willpower towards food and would frequently binge on snack foods like potato chips, biscuits, cake and chocolate.

"I would just eat with no consideration as to what was going into my body.

“I just decided that wasn’t how I wanted to do things anymore, I wanted to start taking care of myself in a different way, I want to love myself better.

“I gave away all of my snack food I love and replaced them with things that are healthier for me and would make me feel good.

“I don’t know where the willpower has come from, it’s just there.”

After suffering from pain in her knees and feet, Jessica saw her doctor who suggested she lose weight through Duromine.

Jessica said: “Last year I was working as a carer and it’s a very physical job, running around a lot, not having much time to sit down and I was getting a lot of pain in my knees and feet.

“I went to my doctor who had previously referred me to a physio for lower back pain which was great but, I knew that a lot of this would be helped by losing weight.


“My doctor recommended losing weight than suggested I take Duromine.

“It’s quite an expensive medication so I made a decision that I wasn’t going to flush it down the toilet and I was actually going to try.

“I didn’t really want to acknowledge that because I enjoyed being unrestricted.

“I began to buy healthy foods that I like to eat and kicked the unhealthy habits.

“I was on that weight loss journey for over a year and it’s great, I still focus on eating well and still have that self-control now.”
